Christine and Jeff - October 23, 2010

There is only one was to describe Christine and Jeff - FUN!! I enjoyed every step of the planning process with them and would look forward to their visits to Charleston! Christine knew she wanted to use jewel tones, brought inspiration photos and then let us handle the rest! It turned out to be one of our most favorite weddings from the Fall! Here are a few of our favorite images from the day...Enjoy!

Christine and Jeff wanted to incorporate the Palmetto Moon throughout the entire wedding! They love South Carolina, Charleston and everything the state has to offer so we started with the wedding programs!

The couple exchanged their vows at Palmetto Presbyterian Church in Mt. Pleasant and then held their reception at The Lighthouse on Shem Creek!

The bride's bouquet, designed by Katie at Timeless Designs, was a beautiful mixture of ivory flowers, eucalyptus berries and lamb's ear greenery! The "silver" foilage was another way to bring in Christine's color palette of jewel tones!

The bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bridal bouquet with the addition of cymbidium orchids to make them a bit different!

The groom's boutonniere was designed to compliment the bride's bouquet!

Christine was all smiles heading down the aisle on her father's arm!

Here the newly weds are making it legal by signing the marriage license!

While their guests enjoyed a sunset cocktail hour on the deck of the Lighthouse, Christine and Jeff snuck away to steal a moment over looking Shem Creek!

It seemed only fitting that the happy couple have their portrait taken next to the state tree - The Palmetto!

During the cocktail hour the guests enjoyed the sounds of Jazz by Two!

We decorated the Lighthouse with Silver Tuxedo Linen, Gold Ballroom Chairs, several veriations of centerpieces and candle light galore! I loved the way all the different jewel tones came together!

By keeping the cake's design simple it became a stand out in the room!

We added lanterns and crystal lamps to the existing bar to create a bit more of a lounge feeling!

By bringing in a black and white checkerboard dancefloor it showed the guest right where to dance the night away! It is amazing how much bringing in flooring can transfor a space!

Before the guests headed out the door, Christine and Jeff wanted to thank them for coming and let them know they were the "frosting" on their big day!

The couple set out on their new adventure in a white vintage rolls royce! Off to the future in style...

Thank you to all of our wonderful vendors who helped to make this event a huge success!

Tara and Steve - The Daniel Island Club

If I had to use one word to describe the planning process with Tara it would be detailed! Tara knew exactly what she wanted from the start and we worked together to make it happen! On September 5th, 2010 Tara and Steve exchanged their vows on the back lawn of the Daniel Island Club and then greeted their guests in a station style reception in the Club's ballroom! It was Peacock Events first time working with photographers Joey + Jessica out of North Carolina but we are hoping it won't be the last! Here are a few of our favorite images from the day...

Tara carried a beautiful bouquet designed by Katie at Timeless Designs! Throughout the day, we used several shades of pink and orange to really make our accent of chocolate brown pop!

Before heading out to the Daniel Island Club, Tara took the flower dog for a quick walk! You will notice even the pup got a floral garland to match the bride's bouquet!

Steve and his gentlemen looking sharp in their suits with pink ties!

The guests were greeted before the ceremony with sweet tea and pink lemonade!

We served the beverages in mason jars for a hint of Southern and of course we made sure the lemonade was pink to match our color scheme for the day!
The couple chose a natural slatted wood folding chair for the ceremony on the back lawn to compliment the outdoor feel that the marsh background provided!

Tara and Steve exchanged their vows over looking the beautiful view surrounded by their family and friends!

It's official!!

After the ceremony, the couple shared some private time down on the dock!

Then with the help of their officiate; Doug Farmer, Tara and Steve signed their marriage license!
The guests were able to enjoy the sunset at several umbrella tables dressed in chocolate linen during the cocktail hour!

We used chocolate leather furniture accented with hot pink pillows to make the covered patio area into a welcoming lounge!
The lounge area was accented with these footed aluminum side tables which added a touch of glamour to the outdoor seating areas!

Inside the ballroom, the guests were greeted by southern style food stations and the sounds of Two 3 Ways! The existing chandeliers were accented by hanging hot pink ribbons dotted with white orchids!

Throughout the night, the guests visited a photobooth and left a message for the bride and groom in their wedding "scrapbook!" This is always a crowd pleaser if you are looking for something fun for your guestbook!
Before the evenings end, we prepared cones of rose petals for the guests to toss during the departure!

And it was a beautiful exit!

Even in black and white!

Thank you to everyone involved in Tara and Steve's most special day!

Kristin and Scott - July 2010

You have heard the saying "it's a small world," well that could not have been more true in terms of how I came to work with Kristin and Scott! Kristin was the roommate of one of the bridesmaids in my husband's best friends wedding that I planned in November of 2009. Thankfully when Kristin and Scott became engaged that bridesmaid remembered me and put us in touch! Right from the beginning Kristin, Scott and I hit it off and spent the following months planning their summer nupitals at the beautiful Legare Waring House! Here are a few of my favorite details from the day...

If you were to ask Kristin, she would tell you that she loves all things preppy, so of course these polka dot shoes with ruffles were a must for her big day! The colors for the day were pecan brown, citadel blue and ivory! Needless to say these fun shoes were perfect!!

Kristin carried a bouquet of all white/ ivory gerber daisies hand wrapped with a monogramed sash! The monogram was stitched in citadel blue to match the color scheme for the day but also to serve as Kristin's "something blue" as she headed down the aisle!

The bridesmaids carried a mixed bouquet that featured white/ ivory gerber daisies and were hand wrapped in the sear sucker fabic we used on a several of the centerpieces!

The bridesmaids wore khaki, knee length, strapless gowns with a citadel blue sash and simple flip flops to finish the summer look!

The men in the wedding party wore khaki sear sucker suits which no Charleston summer wedding would be complete without!

Scott looked handsome and very happy waiting on his bride to arrive by his side!

And Kristin was all smiles heading his way...

Once Kristin walked down the aisle past the pewmarkers of hydrangea bunches, the couple stood beneath the Avenue of Oaks to exchange their vows!

After the ceremony, it was hard to keep the Bride from floating away to Cloud 9 but the groomsmen gave it a shot!

The happy couple took some time to steal a moment in front the beautiful gates entering the property!

As a way to make the historic home feel like a "family property," we displayed photos of the couple on the existing pieces of furniture!

Half of the floral arrangements were simple blue hydrangea mounds in vases wrapped with the reappearing sear sucker fabric! The tables were dressed in pecan bengaline linens which really made the flowers pop!

Beside the dancefloor we placed seagrass lounge seating sections for guests to relax on the dancing breaks!

The catering for the evening was brought in by Granville's Cafe and Catering! The imported cheese, fruit and lobster dip display was a huge hit!

The menu also featured an original "Key West" station that we designed just for the Bride's family!

Later in the evening, the happy couple shared in the traditional cake cutting while their family and friends look on!

And at the end of the night, the newly weds departed in the rain and headed to happily ever after!
