Christine and Jeff - October 23, 2010

There is only one was to describe Christine and Jeff - FUN!! I enjoyed every step of the planning process with them and would look forward to their visits to Charleston! Christine knew she wanted to use jewel tones, brought inspiration photos and then let us handle the rest! It turned out to be one of our most favorite weddings from the Fall! Here are a few of our favorite images from the day...Enjoy!


Christine and Jeff wanted to incorporate the Palmetto Moon throughout the entire wedding! They love South Carolina, Charleston and everything the state has to offer so we started with the wedding programs!





The couple exchanged their vows at Palmetto Presbyterian Church in Mt. Pleasant and then held their reception at The Lighthouse on Shem Creek!



The bride's bouquet, designed by Katie at Timeless Designs, was a beautiful mixture of ivory flowers, eucalyptus berries and lamb's ear greenery! The "silver" foilage was another way to bring in Christine's color palette of jewel tones!




The bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bridal bouquet with the addition of cymbidium orchids to make them a bit different!



The groom's boutonniere was designed to compliment the bride's bouquet!



Christine was all smiles heading down the aisle on her father's arm!




Here the newly weds are making it legal by signing the marriage license!



While their guests enjoyed a sunset cocktail hour on the deck of the Lighthouse, Christine and Jeff snuck away to steal a moment over looking Shem Creek!




It seemed only fitting that the happy couple have their portrait taken next to the state tree - The Palmetto!




During the cocktail hour the guests enjoyed the sounds of Jazz by Two!






We decorated the Lighthouse with Silver Tuxedo Linen, Gold Ballroom Chairs, several veriations of centerpieces and candle light galore! I loved the way all the different jewel tones came together!









By keeping the cake's design simple it became a stand out in the room!


We added lanterns and crystal lamps to the existing bar to create a bit more of a lounge feeling!




By bringing in a black and white checkerboard dancefloor it showed the guest right where to dance the night away! It is amazing how much bringing in flooring can transfor a space!




Before the guests headed out the door, Christine and Jeff wanted to thank them for coming and let them know they were the "frosting" on their big day!



The couple set out on their new adventure in a white vintage rolls royce! Off to the future in style...


Thank you to all of our wonderful vendors who helped to make this event a huge success!
