Color Me Beautiful: Evergreen

Comments: 1


It’s easy to be inspired by all the beautiful evergreens gracing hearths and bringing cheer to doorways. Evergreens are a classically elegant detail to incorporate into tablescapes or to attach to escort cards.  Add a sprig to a boutonniere or slip one into a napkin ring, and you’ll not only add beauty but also a pretty delightful aroma.

Ode to all things Printed!

Comments: 0

We have had an especially wonderful year of show stopping printed material suites and we would love to give a special THANK YOU to the our stationary gurus that make it all happen! Their creativity, technique and unwavering attention to detail inspire the Easton team and our brides daily. The printed suite is a defining element of the wedding, and discovering ways to uniquely and tastefully lace the details throughout the evening ties the vision together.

SIDESHOW PRESS – The ladies of Sideshow Press are a creative institution in Charleston, South Carolina. Known for their unbelievable letterpress designs and time-honored craftmanship, Sideshow Press delivers beyond beautiful work. As seen in Martha Stewart and Garden & Gun, we feel lucky to work with this remarkable team in Charleston. This year we produced a lavender and apricot suite for Southern Weddings Magazine and a beautiful velvet suite for The Knot.  We also collaborated on a lovely wedding and Charleston shoot and we cannot wait to share the images!

ROCK PAPER SCISSORS – Talk about creative and inspiring energy, the team at Rock Paper Scissors never fails to wow us with their innovative ideas and new printed mediums. We feel amazingly fortunate to be able to collaborate with them on a regular basis. We did many a fun and fabulous printed suite this year and these are just two of the highlights. The gray and blush calligraphy suite for Whitney & Clarke in Southern Weddings Magazine was such a blast! We loved lacing the bee and garland motif throughout the details. The punchy patterned suite for Parker & Scott added that perfect touch of whimsy to their classic white and peony pink wedding.

Erika Jack is known for her lovely and feminine bespoke designs. She works magic with swirls, angles, color, and her signature wax seal. She has a timeless, classic approach but is not afraid to push the envelope with a custom motif, monogram, or beautiful patterned liner. Not only is she a fabulous stationnaire but she is the graphic designer extraordinaire for The Scout Guide! We love any opportunity to work Erika – her work never fails to amaze. The suite below was featured in Southern Weddings Magazine for Lauren & Rob’s wedding.

Charleston Wedding Planner: Candlelight

Comments: 0

Candlelight might be the single most romantic detail of a wedding or special event.  Incorporating traditional white pillar or votive candles into your tablescape is a classic way to set the mood; however, we are more and more drawn to dramatic displays of soft, flickering light.  We’re loving hundreds (even thousands!) of candles burning atop tables and hanging from tree branches, tall pillars lighting ceremonies, and unique candle holders like mercury glass, mineral coasters, and glass terrariums.

Charleston Wedding at Lowndes Grove

Picture of Charleston Wedding Invitation

We simply loved this wedding! With a beautiful ceremony by the water, cocktails mingling throughout Lowndes Grove, and a Sperry tent on the front lawn, it was a perfect evening. There is something so timeless and charming about a palette of pale blue and cream for a late summer wedding. We are lucky to work with such amazingly talented people. The incredible team at Patrick Properties & Fish delighted our guests with a delicious low country meal. The floral wizards at Stems blew us away with their jaw-dropping ceremony arch and splendid arrangements. We adore the floral and lace wedding cake by Jim Smeal and the beautiful printed suite by the Lettered Olive. And many thanks to Blossoms Events who installed a gorgeous custom dancefloor! We are so delighted to have our office in Charleston and these stunning photos by Jen Fariello reinforce why!

Color Me Beautiful: Statement Veils

Comments: 0


A bride’s veil is one of those details that can truly make a statement on a wedding day.  Cathedral veils hearken back to the most formal, royal weddings and are just timelessly romantic.  Blushers in polka dot or edged in lace are flirtatious and sweet, while a Juliet cap veil is feminine with a bohemian edge.

Historic-Charleston-Wedding PlannerWe love the Charleston wedding of our sweet Nicola and her charming husband Eddie beautifully captured by Brennan Wesley. Nicola is our interactive marketing producer with Blue Ion, and she has helped us visually transform and continually update our website over the years. We were so happy we could help her tie together the final details and send her down the aisle! She couldn’t have been any more beautiful. With many thanks to Nicola and the team at Blue Ion, take a peek at our recent portfolio updates!
