Lindsay and David

Wednesday, December 14, 2011





































Mrs Armour has been waxing poetic about a case of Southern wanderlust lately, and when she shared a dreamy Charleston home, I knew I was bound to catch the bug, too! This wedding, held in a Charleston town home, is the perfect Southern celebration!

The bride wore a gown by Ulla Maija and a veil by Reem Acra, and bridesmaids wore black strapless and ivory one-shoulder gowns by Rachel Pally. They carried bouquets of green hydrangeas and cream roses, and Lindsay carried a full bouquet of her favorite flower, orchids, nestled in green hydrangeas. David wore a crisp black suit, while his groomsmen donned baby blue Banana Republic sweaters and black ties.

Lindsay and David were married at St Luke's Chapel and celebrated their nuptials at the Wickliffe House, whose white columns and wide front porch were made for sipping sweet tea. Tables were set with mercury glass vases and votives, and lush arrangements of roses, hydrangeas, peonies, dusty miller and sweet peas in pinks, creams, greens and yellows by Tiger Lily Weddings were a nod to the couple's Easter weekend wedding date.

Dinner, served on the porch, was a low country affair: barbecue biscuits, shrimp and grits, and a mashed potato bar. Dancing on the lawn was encouraged, and lounge areas beneath the lanterns were the perfect place for guests to catch their breath between Stephen Jenkins' sets. After a classic buttercream cake by Ashley Bakery, the newlyweds made a sparkling exit; Joey and Jessica, the dynamic duo behind Veil and Bow captured their departure, and each moment of their gorgeous celebration!

  6. It's like a dream. I would love to have my wedding in a beautiful home like this. I think it would be so much cozier than a hall. And a mashed potato bar? Sold!
