Kristin and Scott - July 2010

You have heard the saying "it's a small world," well that could not have been more true in terms of how I came to work with Kristin and Scott! Kristin was the roommate of one of the bridesmaids in my husband's best friends wedding that I planned in November of 2009. Thankfully when Kristin and Scott became engaged that bridesmaid remembered me and put us in touch! Right from the beginning Kristin, Scott and I hit it off and spent the following months planning their summer nupitals at the beautiful Legare Waring House! Here are a few of my favorite details from the day...

If you were to ask Kristin, she would tell you that she loves all things preppy, so of course these polka dot shoes with ruffles were a must for her big day! The colors for the day were pecan brown, citadel blue and ivory! Needless to say these fun shoes were perfect!!

Kristin carried a bouquet of all white/ ivory gerber daisies hand wrapped with a monogramed sash! The monogram was stitched in citadel blue to match the color scheme for the day but also to serve as Kristin's "something blue" as she headed down the aisle!

The bridesmaids carried a mixed bouquet that featured white/ ivory gerber daisies and were hand wrapped in the sear sucker fabic we used on a several of the centerpieces!

The bridesmaids wore khaki, knee length, strapless gowns with a citadel blue sash and simple flip flops to finish the summer look!

The men in the wedding party wore khaki sear sucker suits which no Charleston summer wedding would be complete without!

Scott looked handsome and very happy waiting on his bride to arrive by his side!

And Kristin was all smiles heading his way...

Once Kristin walked down the aisle past the pewmarkers of hydrangea bunches, the couple stood beneath the Avenue of Oaks to exchange their vows!

After the ceremony, it was hard to keep the Bride from floating away to Cloud 9 but the groomsmen gave it a shot!

The happy couple took some time to steal a moment in front the beautiful gates entering the property!

As a way to make the historic home feel like a "family property," we displayed photos of the couple on the existing pieces of furniture!

Half of the floral arrangements were simple blue hydrangea mounds in vases wrapped with the reappearing sear sucker fabric! The tables were dressed in pecan bengaline linens which really made the flowers pop!

Beside the dancefloor we placed seagrass lounge seating sections for guests to relax on the dancing breaks!

The catering for the evening was brought in by Granville's Cafe and Catering! The imported cheese, fruit and lobster dip display was a huge hit!

The menu also featured an original "Key West" station that we designed just for the Bride's family!

Later in the evening, the happy couple shared in the traditional cake cutting while their family and friends look on!

And at the end of the night, the newly weds departed in the rain and headed to happily ever after!
