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.
