Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Ceremony Backdrops

Comments: 0

wedding va

The ceremony is the most meaningful part of a wedding day, and we love ceremonies that exhibit as much thought and care in their decor as went into the rest of the day.  Arches dripping in florals, dramatic displays of candlelight, unique wood signage, or draped linen against a gorgeous landscape are all perfect backdrops in front of which to say your “I do’s.”

Color Me Beautiful: Evergreen

evergreen

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.

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 Inspiration: Mercury Glass

Mercury glass, that mirrored, antiqued metal, is inspiring us – atop tables, in ribboned vases hanging from trees, as candle votives, and grouped in various textures and shades.  This shimmery metal can create great drama when used in complement with other materials like wood, rose gold, or linens.  Keep your table warm and inviting by incorporating soft textures and tones.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Winter White

Comments: 1

va wedding

It may not be snowing in Virginia quite yet but with parts of the country receiving their first bout of chilly weather, we’re dreaming of winter whites.  A snowy backdrop can be beautiful for a wedding, but even if you aren’t expecting snowfall on your wedding day, a wintery mix of whites, ivories, and creams in a variety of textures can evoke the beauty and glamour of a brisk walk through the snowdrifts.

Color Me Beautiful: Wreath Inspired

It’s beginning to be that time of year again: When wreaths grace doors, windows, and shops, displaying evergreens and seasonal florals.  As a floral headpiece or an elegant boxwood chair adornment, wreaths can be a beautiful addition to your wedding day decor.

Color Me Beautiful: Chair Decor

Comments: 0

Today we’re talking chairs.  An oft overlooked opportunity for inspiring decor, ceremony and reception chairs are the perfect blank slate for a gorgeous, blooming garland or a unique detail like a floating air plant.  The bride’s and groom’s chairs at the reception provide a sweet photo opportunity; you’ll want to be certain your chairs are just as elegant as the rest of your decor.

Color Me Beautiful: Chalkboard Inspiration

It’s that time of year again – as children go back to school, we can’t help but borrow a little inspiration from the classroom.  The chalkboard has been trending in decor, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites.  The options for chalk art are endless – as a photobooth backdrop, welcome sign, menu, program, or even an invitation!
