Good morning lovely ladies! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend and a lovely start to your last Monday of this September? To help ease you into the last week in September, we have a beautiful real wedding of Sarah and Tyler to share with you. They wedding was on April Fool’s Day in Charleston and full of gorgeous gold and pink details.
Check out these photos for inspiration on how to have the quintessential southern wedding, from the spectacular venue to the décor and colour choices. Sarah and Tyler’s wedding shows us that sometimes the most important choice in wedding planning is all about the venue to set the right tone and atmosphere. The Legare Waring House in Charleston features everything that the Southern bride is looking for in her ambiance: brick and intricate wrought iron gates on a dusty path leading to a classic white-column plantation home. A corridor of hundred-year-old oaks draped in clouds of Spanish moss. A swampy pond, complete with an alligator that made his appearance during their ceremony! Even a light spring rain to fill the air with the humid aromas of the south. You can just picture the smiles on the guests’ faces as the twinkle lights draped across the the avenue of oaks twinkled right along with hundreds of fireflies lighting up the night.
Gold candelabras and traditional blue and white floral plates graced their banquet tables. The only pops of colour came from the perfectly feminine passionate pink blooms that coordinated perfectly with the gold hues of the décor and the soft neutral colours of the bridal party. And what southern party would be complete without sweet tea for all the guests?! See all the complete details of this elegant affair in the beautiful photos from JoPhoto…
Bistro lights were strung across their wedding ceremony site at the avenue of oaks.
How gorgeous this wedding reception at the fountain patio and under a clear tent!
Sarah and Tyler’s wedding cake was made by their dear friend.
From JoPhoto…Sarah and Tyler’s wedding was on April Fool’s Day, and it was a breezy and comfortable afternoon with the Spanish moss swaying back and forth from the branches of the ancient oak trees. An alligator was relaxing in the pond and moved swiftly with a splash as Sarah and Tyler walked along the bank.
Bistro lights were strung across their ceremony site at the end of the avenue of oaks, and they twinkled as a light drizzle began to fall as Sarah’s dad walked her down the aisle. Colorful umbrellas of varying sizes and heights popped up among the guests during the ceremony, but the storm held out until everyone was safely under the tent for the reception.
Gold decor with taper candles twinkled at every table and slowly dripped to the bases of the candelabras as the guests ate by candlelight. Sarah and Tyler’s wedding cake was made by their dear friend, and dinner included traditional southern fare including shrimp and grits.
