{Founders Hall} The Grass is Greener

{Founders Hall} The Grass is Greener



Black centered anemone bouquet


This is our bride Melissa, or MadMel as she was called because of her email handle. She was one of our many brides that come in from Columbia to get married here in Charleston. For this event we grew the rye grass ourselves :-) Nestled in the bouquets are black & white spotted peasant feathers that our youngest son, Gabe, had collected while at a photo shoot held at Longwood Plantation.

Everything about this wedding fit so perfectly and beautifully together…from the contemporary lines of the venue to the modern chic design of the floral creations….it was SO perfect!

I knew from the very first meeting with Melissa that I was just going to love this wedding from all the fabulous ideas she had…we helped her expand on the (what I call ‘modern classic’) color palette of black, white and bright green!!!!  I love the use of the natural elements throughout the entire event!

Their wedding took place in Charleston, with their reception at the new Founder’s Hall at Charlestowne Landing.  This venue has a modern/angular twist to it and their reception fit like a glove in this beautiful space.

Catering was done by dear friend and colleague, Capital City Catering ~ and AS ALWAYS, it was just wonderful.

The ‘oh so amazing’ floral design was created by Beth at WildFlowers Inc ~ these pieces stole my heart!

As you will see below, I have been so lucky to receive a few images from the wonderful photographers, Bent Studio!!  I can not wait to see the rest but thank you for sharing a few of the breath-taking detail shots and one of the beautiful couple!!!

Some of the images are from my camera as well (as you can clearly see) – but Bent Studio images are labeled!

The couple displayed great photos of them over the years with their signature guest book.

On the next table, they had wonderful photos of their families at their own weddings!

The couple had guests coming from all over so they displayed a map with push pins and their guests marked where they were from ~

The great home made cookie bar!  The bride’s mother baked these lovely treats!

Cake was created by Monica Tatis!
