Ali + Charlie's St. Paul Wedding

Ali and Charlie, both from Augusta, started their big day by choosing get ready at their local family homes on a bright December day. The pair held their ceremony at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church where Ali herself was baptized, bringing much meaning to the newly weds. Working with Ali and her mother, Abby, proved a joy to do. Ali’s vision was to have a winter wedding that was elegant and that is exactly what she got. From gorgeous linens to luscious winter greens, everything came together beautifully. We decorated from floor to ceiling with custom made chandelier covers, a 25’ drape for the main focal pint behind the head table, and greens trailing on every banister. Everything was tied into Ali’s dream. Roses, Smilax, spray roses, lisianthius hydrangeas, foraged greenery, tulips, white stock, hypericum, and lysimachai were tied into every bouquet, wreath and centerpiece. My team and I adorned the cake with sugar dusted grapes, limes, and apples helping to create a truly stunning piece. This wedding was truly as lovely as the couple it was pieced together for.

Aubrey + Jeffrey's Country Club Wedding

Surrounded by family and friends, Aubrey + Jeffrey’s fall wedding was a warm and inviting. Working with them was an absolute pleasure. From the stunning I Do Linens linens to the Collection Event Furnishings lounges, the Augusta Country Club was transformed into a fall wedding with a soft color palette. Aubrey was stunning, absolutely gorgeous, in her Anne Barge Atelier dress. Much to Aubrey’s joy, we were able to custom build the wall behind the band, at 16’ x 12’, mossed and laden with smilax. Hydrangeas, garden roses, and hypericum berries filled the venue. Lila Greene’s cake was accented with spray roses, hypericum berries, and smilax. A shower of rose petals greeted them for their departure.

Erin + Billy's Lake Front Wedding

Held on May 26th, 2019, Erin and Billy’s beautiful wedding, planned by Meagan Warren Weddings, was held at Salem United Methodist Church in Irmo. Their reception was held only a short distance away at Erin’s family home on Lake Murray. For this wedding we combined luscious peonies, garden and spray roses, hellebores, and hydrangeas in arrangements throughout the reception space to tie into the beautiful lakeside scenery. The cake was made by Bonnie Brunt Cakes and was layered with peonies and garden roses and was truly gorgeous. The show-stopping florals were not the only attention grabber at this event though; the reception featured a truly unique pool-top dance-floor and a picturesque view of the lakeside sunset. Guests were also treated to a firework display at the end the night as the couple departed across Lake Murray in their get-away boat, driven by Erin’s uncle.

Marjorie + Matt's Augusta Country Club Wedding

We had the pleasure of getting to know Marjorie and her family in the months before the wedding and we just adore them. They are just the sweetest family and we’re sad that our time together planning came to an end. Marjorie and Matt said their “I Do’s” surrounded by love from their closest friends and family at Trinity on the Hill in Augusta, GA. They danced their way into the night at their gorgeous reception at the Augusta Country Club.

Kemper + Charlie's Highlands Country Club Wedding

When Angelyn called me after Kemper & Charlie got engaged, I couldn’t wait to get started on planning Kemper’s dream wedding. I mean how hard can that be when you have the beautiful backdrop of the Highlands Country Club to work with? From the beautiful mountain views and the lush gardens throughout the grounds it just just gives you all the feels. Speaking of the lush gardens, Charlie’s grandmother, who is a master gardener, helped design those gorgeous gardens you’ll get a glimpse of.

Kemper absolutely stunned in her Anne Barge gown and the timeless heirloom veil that has been passed down from generation to generation (worn by her great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister, and now the beautiful Kemper). Of course, we can’t forget about Charlie, who looked dapper as ever in his white dinner jacket and a smile from ear to ear. I just love how the ever talented Lauren Carnes captured the love between these two so well.

I cannot tell you how happy I am that I have come to know the Peacock’s so well the past few years. They have truly become dear friends of mine and I am so grateful that they entrusted me to design both Kemper and Kathryn’s wedding days. I cannot speak highly enough for the Peacock family, they are absolutely lovely and it has been the greatest blessing to be able to be apart of such an important day of their daughters lives.

Hannah + Drew's Classic Southern Wedding

Hannah and Drew had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection. Hannah, from head to toe, embodied true southern elegance that Olivia Griffin Photography brought out so beautifully in her photographs. Looking back at this spring wedding we just love the timeless, classic look that Hannah envisioned for her reception at The Old Medical College in Augusta, GA.
