In the early spring of 2017 we sat down for our first meeting with Mary Hull & her mother, Carol, to start planning for Mary Hull & Patrick's February 2018 wedding day. Over the next year, we worked with them on crafting a one-of-a-kind seated dinner reception held at the Augusta Country Club for their closest friends and family.
Carol (with past experience as a planner herself!) & Mary Hull (an art dealer!) both have an eye for design, which makes our jobs as event designers so much more fun! We knew that this wedding would be filled with thoughtful details starting from the ceremony held at Church of the Good Shepherd followed by cocktails, seated dinner, and dancing reception at the Club.
When it came time to create a floorplan for the seated dinner, we quickly decided that mixing round and estate tables was the surest way to create a different feeling in a venue that most of the guests in attendance had been to before. The vision included long tables covered in beautiful linens, topped with florals indicating the first signs of springs. Blooming branches, lush arrangements of various heights, heirloom silver accents, and custom monogrammed menus wrapped around linen hemstitch napkins would set the mood as soon as guests sat down to their seats.
Once dinner concluded, guests were escorted by the horns of the Sol Fusion band outside to the entertainment tent for the first dance between the newly-married Mr. and Mrs. Crawford. When guests were ready to take a reprieve from dancing they could mingle in the art lounge we created inside the Club, with art on loan from some of Mary Hull's very talented friends. Late night snacks of South Carolina BBQ sliders & chips as well as the Club's signature night cap, the velvet hammer, were quickly enjoyed by guests both on and off the dance floor!
We had some of our favorite vendors on our team for this one, including our favorite Ashley Seawell Photography, the delicious 5-tiered wedding cake was by our friend Lila Greene, hair and make-up by our Surrey Center neighbors Cucumber & Mint, and Sol Fusion band kept guests out on the dance floor all night long.
Scroll down to see the full list of vendors, and the beautiful images Ashley captured of this special day. We still feel so lucky to have been included in such a meaningful day for these two sweet families. Thank you to them for letting us be a part of it!
