Meredith and William’s Winter Wedding at Pippin Hill Farm

Comments: 1

Meredith and William could not have been a more loving and considerate couple…the love they share for one another is contagious and it was heartwarming to see the uniting of two incredibly supportive families!

A beautiful palette of gray, blush, robins egg blue and spring green set the tone for this welcoming winter soiree. The granary at Pippin Hill was exceptionally aglow with beautiful candlelit chandeliers dancing throughout the ceiling. Speaking of dancing, Meredith and William’s guests had a magnetic attraction to the dance floor and the incredible sound of Right On. Following a surprising late winter storm, we were thrilled to be greeted on the morning of the wedding with just a light dusting of snow on the ground, bright blue skies, and the wonderful warm open hearts of our bride and groom…we could not have asked for a more memorable wedding!

Charleston Wedding Inspiration – Magnolia Blossoms

Comments: 1


Magnolia trees are one of the South’s most treasured natural gifts, and we love how we’re seeing the big white or ombre pink blooms cropping up in wedding bouquets, in table runners, even in chandelier designs!  Whether you’re using a single flower or grouping some of the large, flat leaves with other florals, we love these sweet-smelling blossoms.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: White Florals

Sometimes it’s best to return to what is simple, what is pure.  And elegant white blooms can do no wrong in our opinion.  With an all-white bouquet or table arrangement, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase various textures and greenery.  Whether you’re adding in lots of color elsewhere or keeping your palette all ivory, white florals are just gorgeous.

Color Me Beautiful: 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 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

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.

Pretty Pumpkins

Floral_Inspiration_CharlestonHappy Halloween! To celebrate, we wanted to share a way to put a feminine flair on the favorite harvest pumpkin. While looking for a fresh take on the traditional, we stumbled on these beautiful images on the blog for Lily & Co via Chatelaine. We are very excited to be teaming up with the wildly talented floral designers of Lily & Co. for a wedding in Jackson Hole in August! Thank you for the inspiration.

Lucy and Jason’s Farmington Country Club Wedding

Comments: 2


Lucy and Jason were married in late August at Farmington Country Club, located right around the corner from the bride’s family home. Despite the rainy day, the bride and groom had bright spirits and joyful hearts! The bride chose a palate of white, green, and touch of deep blue to give a special nod to the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountain view – very fitting for late summer! The groomsmen even wore green ties with fleur de lis, a nod to Jason’s New Orleans background.
