A Sweet Spring Wedding
Annie and Kevin's spring wedding at the historic Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, SC is bursting with vibrant florals perfect for the season. Their unique and festive design centers around a family-style table for the wedding party. The tablescape features a cascading mossy centerpiece topped with teal votives and floating candles. In lieu of place cards, guests' names were etched onto glass jars and filled with petite fuchsia wildflowers. The table design rounded out with blue goblets and powder blue napkins tied with mint velvet ribbon. Overhead is an eye-catching, rustic hanging timber feature with various colored bottles and flowers hanging from the wood. The motif of glass bottles and spring florals is highlighted on every centerpiece thereafter. When not dining, guests could lounge waterside on a vintage furniture suite of a powder blue sofa paired with yellow and celeste blue accent chairs.
This spring fling inspiration spread to the signature drink - a watermelon margarita cocktail made up of tequila, watermelon puree, and triple sec garnished with fresh lime and a sliver of fresh jalapeno. For even sweeter treats, the couple had a 1 tier cake with hand brushed painting of flowers accompanied by miniature peach blueberry cobblers and coconut layer cakes.
This whimsical styling is completed with the bride herself. Annie's bridal look includes a strapless a-line gown with lace overlay to go with her braided half-up hairstyle adorned with flowers tucked in her hair. Her bouquet mirrors a perfect collection of wildflowers that highlights a large sunflower and is accented with such flowers as white ranunculus, pink astilbe, and light blue delphinium.
Annie's bridesmaids are dressed in uniquely styled gowns, but all in the shade of powder blue. Kevin and the groomsmen sported blue suits with the addition of suspenders. This large wedding party of 20+ was a burst of joy and color perfect for a May wedding.
