Sara and Trey’s wedding was seasoned with elegance and class. Their vision of what they wanted for their day came together beautifully. The aisle was blanketed with flower petals leading up to a charming mantle. It was the most romantic scene! They added their own unique touches, and that’s what made it all so alluring.
They live in Charlotte, but knew they wanted their wedding to be in Charleston. I think they made a good call. Trey actually grew up in Charleston, so it was even more fitting to hold their wedding here! The color scheme was beautiful with soft, natural colors with accents of gold. Drunken Magnolias were requested for their signature drink and Duvall totally nailed it! I figured it was too good not to share with y’all below. 😉
The long farm tables were lined with the most gorgeous greenery and small pops of pink and ivory flowers. The edison bulbs really added a dreamy touch- especially as the evening grew dark. The four-tiered cake was to die for! It was white with gold accents and a few fondant flowers. I’m having a hard time putting into words an accurate description- it was just gorgeous. See for yourself below!
This wedding was so aesthetically pleasing. From the aisle and the mantle, to the silhouette wedding programs, to the flower petal send off. Sara and Trey were so lovely. And they have exceptionally great taste!
Speaking of taste, the Drunken Magnolia drink recipe as promised…
Splash of lemon juice
1.5 oz bourbon
.75 oz St. Germaine
Shake and pour over ice. Top with lemonade and a splash of soda. Serve on the rocks or highball. Enjoy!

They were wed at the Island House on Johns Island, SC. The backdrop was the Stono River, where the air is free to flow without interruption. Beautiful wildflowers of the deepest oranges and purples swayed in the distance. Haley and Gus were the gorgeous, picture-perfect Hollywood couple. What a stunning pair they make! And they have great taste, to boot! The style for the occasion perfectly reflected their characters: elegant, classy, romantic. Their color choice was light and clean: pale pinks and ivories with accents of gold.
Wildflour Pastry did an incredible job creating the perfect cake! The top and bottom tiers were a smooth white. The middle tier was my favorite part. It really made the cake. The texture reminded me of white concrete stucco walls. The tiers were lined with overlapping gold circles. It really was a romantic cake, and it complimented the theme well. The cake was set up behind a darling seating area.
The love these two shared was palpable! Their feelings for each other were evident in their little moments of touch and chatter. The pair exchanged personally written vows without an absence of tears. A truly romantic scene, for sure. And how about that wedding hashtag (last name is Vazquez-Milan)?! How cute and clever!
Gus and Haley’s wedding perfectly showcased their hopelessly romantic natures flawlessly. And it was a beauty to witness.

Since we’re finally seeing some Spring weather in Charleston this week, we’re excited to share Marcia and Shane’s wedding from last May! Marcia and Shane knew they found the perfect venue in the Cooper River Room with it’s breathtaking views of the bridge (where Shane proposed the day before the big Cooper River Bridge Run!). They incorporated plenty of Charleston charm to match their engagement through spring colors, a chic outdoor lounge, classic Charleston bites, and finally some delicious praline favors.
We’re always stoked when brides want to play with fun colors and textures in their florals and Marcia was certainly no let down! She had a gorgeous vision that incorporated lots of pink, plum, fuchsia, coral, and a little greenery to tie her scheme together.
It was a beautiful, touching sight watching Marcia and Shane say their “I Dos” to one another with their favorite Lowcountry view in the background. It was an equally beautiful aisle adorned with pale pink roses, dusty miller, and loncinera vines!
Their guests enjoyed a southern feast of sugar cured ham and buttermilk fried chicken, accompanied with all the country sides. What a hit their late night bites were too! Guests loved their fried mac & cheese bites, cheddar biscuits, and pulled pork with a honey mango BBQ sauce served in adorable mini bamboo boats. On top of all that deliciousness they also had a delectable 3 tiered cake of white vanilla with salted caramel and carrot with cream!
The reception was a blast with everyone dancing to hits from the 60s to 90s! At the end of the night, Marcia and Shane said their goodbyes in a classic Mercedes on their way to the Indigo Inn and guests their enjoyed sweet praline favors.
Congratulations Marcia and Shane! You’re such a sweet couple and we can’t wait to see where life takes you!

April and Tom wed on May 1, 2015 at the stunning Boone Hall Plantation. They were surrounded by family and friends, just as it was when Tom proposed to April on Thanksgiving. So we thought now was a fitting time to share this wedding as we all recuperate from the turkey hangover that was!
April and Tom had the cutest ring bearer, reassuring all the single ladies that he was still available. He wore a mini version of the Vineyard Vine ties that the men adorned. April loved those ties and was determined to have them from the start!
April’s vision was vintage glam with a rustic twist to tie it all into the atmosphere of the plantation and especially, the Cotton Dock. Very Southern, very sophisticated but with fun touches that spoke to the personality of the couple. We were actually surprised a bit when April chose shades of rosey pink for her bridesmaids gowns. We were thrilled to embrace it and bring some girly-ness to the mix along with the baby’s breath and vintage blue furniture. Gold accents abound, even gold pained cotton burrs!
April nailed it with all the custom pieces she sourced for the big day. One of our favorites was the wooden guest “book” box. Guests wrote on wooden hearts which filled the box and will be a treasured piece in their home.
April wanted a TON of lights sweeping through the rafters to go along with the candlelight we were emphasizing below. So that is what we gave her! It looked so awesome and really set the atmosphere in the reception.
This cake was a stunner. The floral accents were inspired by April’s gown’s lace detail and of course the sweetgrass basket inspired bottom tier brought the Southern flair.
It was a beautiful, charming wedding and we loved being a part of it.
Congratulations April + Tom!

Kim and Alex exchanged their vows on September 21, 2014, on the lawn of the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation, with Spanish Moss swaying overhead.
The celebrations continued inside of the rustic Carriage House, where the Spanish Moss was incorporated by being hung from the chandeliers, giving that low country touch.
Along with a menu featuring scrumptious “picnic chic” foods, the couple wanted a “Smoke ’em & Toast ’em bar” where guests could enjoy cigars and smores for a casual and fun addition!
Kim and Alex opted for a very natural color scheme for their big day. Their decor featured wood slices underneath beautifully arranged centerpieces of peach roses, yellow and orange poppies, succulents and dusty millers all in mason jars for a rustic look.
We were overjoyed to celebrate their nuptials with them and we wish this San Francisco couple a life of love and happiness. Congratulations Kim + Alex!

Carly and Brent officially said “I do” at Boone Hall’s charming Cotton Dock on September 14, 2014. A late summer wedding in Charleston was perfectly fitting for this SoCal couple.
The groom had an eye for style and it clearly showed! Brent impressed in a sharp three-piece suit alongside his beautiful bride.
Floral arrangements of baby’s breath and pastel colors beautifully complimented the rustic venue and vintage dessert table.
The couple knew they wanted the space to be light and airy. Hanging lanterns and cafe lights strung about helped to create this effortless look.
With a dazzling setup, an array of delicious food, beautiful desserts, and a room full of happy friends and family, the newlyweds danced the night away.
We loved celebrating the couple’s big day with them here in Charleston. Congratulations Carly and Brent!

Brandy + Dug married on April 17, 2014 and held a unique ceremony at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. The Midwestern duo was wed under a billowing oak tree near the ground’s classic white bridge and later moved to the conservatory for their intimate reception.
The couple shared their passion for traveling with the guests by creating a vintage postcard guestbook. Brandy’s grandfather’s personal suitcase even made the trek down to South Carolina for the special occasion. Along with this, Brandy + Dug gave away azaleas as favors for their wedding guests to honor their day at the Magnolia gardens, the first garden to plant outdoor azaleas (dating back to the 1840s!).
There was a large emphasis on a very close, personal reception and dinner to cherish these first times as a united family. Brandy + Dug chose gorgeous centerpieces that created a fun, inviting gathering among both the bride and groom’s families.
Richard Bell Photography captured pictures of the newlyweds all across the plantation, both day and night. Photos were essential for the couple to freeze every part of their day in time for years to come. Husband and wife wound up their evening at the conservatory and sparkled their way off into the night with glowing wishes from friends, family, and loved ones!

Christine and Bryan were married under the oaks at the River House at Lowndes Grove and it could not have been a more gorgeous day! Family and friends gathered from all over to celebrate at an intimate, afternoon affair. What was most important to these two was that their day was both meaningful and relaxed.
Lanterns and aisle markers full of baby’s breath adorned the aisle and the oak trees. They helped to highlight the natural beauty of the fantastic ceremony backdrop that Lowndes Grove has to offer.
Shades of green and neutrals set the tone for a lovely afternoon wedding celebration, from the centerpieces to the linens, their day was classic and romantic!
If cake isn’t your thing, pie is always a big hit! The two chose an assortment of sweet treats for their guests to enjoy! How cute is their pie topper!?
Christine and Bryan are fishing enthusiasts and love the outdoors, so a getaway boat and a wedding on the water could not have been more perfect! Reese Moore joined them on the boat to capture their creative send off! We wish the Rosensteels the best in their life together and were honored to be a part of their big day!

Maria and Kyle said their “I Do’s” July 4th weekend at St. Luke’s Chapel, a little over a year ago. This Charleston couple wanted their wedding to be traditional mixed with a touch of modern. The two fell in love with the South Carolina Aquarium for their reception (bonus- it’s air-conditioned)! This is definitely a must to beat the Charleston heat in July!
We adored Maria’s polka-dot gown: it was elegant yet cheerful, just like her! The bridesmaids wore soft mint dresses which we tied into the florals by adding dusty miller to give them dimension.
Kyle worked in horticulture and loved gladiolus so we made sure to highlight them in the aisle markers and large centerpiece at the entrance to the aquarium.
A pale pink and apple green color scheme brought pops of color into the industrial aquarium. White washed wood and chevron burlap ribbon created a subtle touch of rustic without detracting from the aquarium’s modern and upscale appeal.
Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Meyer’s! We loved being a part of their stunning day and wish them the best in their life together!

Katie and Robbie celebrated their love for each other last year at Harborside East! These two were from West Virginia but fell in love with Charleston (who could blame them?!) and ended up moving to the holy city.
Harborside East has beautiful views of downtown Charleston and the Yorktown. With its modern charm and elegance, this venue is a great choice for any couple wanting to get married near the harbor!
Katie was looking for a romantic and elegant wedding day. Navy, light pink, and yellow were her signature colors. They were executed beautifully in the florals and decor to create her romantic atmosphere. These two are big WVU fans so the navy and yellow choices were a nod to their favorite team!
The day of their wedding it rained cats and dogs! However, these two did not let the weather put a damper on their big day!
We adored working with these two and could not be happier for them! Thank you for letting Breeze be a part of your big day! We wish you the best, Katie and Robbie!
