Custom Calligraphy Chalkboard

September 18th, 2014

Ever wonder how the artist creates their amazing works of art? Marisa Schaaf let us take a peek into her world, a graphic designer and calligrapher, and owner of Blue Glass Design. The bride & groom wanted a custom calligraphy chalkboard for the program for their wedding. Marisa took pictures of the process she uses to create these beautiful works of art. Thanks Marisa!

Emily & Rob

September 4th, 2014

 Charleston native, Emily Wilbourne Satzger wanted to make sure all of her guests got a taste of the cities best known cakes for her wedding. A gold sequin cake table adorned her three tiered passion fruit cake made by the Daniel Island Club. It was accompanied by the oh so yummy coconut cake from the Peninsula Grill and the decadent double dark chocolate cake from Hall’s Chophouse. The weather held off and that truly was the icing on the cake!!

Amanda & Damien

August 20th, 2014

Amanda & Damien didn’t let the rain wash out their special day. Lowndes Grove, decorated in blush, peach and coral accents, radiated against the mix of the summer sun and rain. Thanks to Two Three Ways band, who started the party right away, the fun couple and their guests danced the night away and enjoyed this special evening. Lucky for us, our friends at Mark Staff Photography, captured all of the magical moments of Amanda and Damien’s June wedding, to then share with you!

Brigid & Joseph

July 18th, 2014

Brigid & Joe, both Oregon natives truly captured the look and feel of a Charleston style wedding. With an intimate guest count, the Wickliffe House was the “perfect match”. Guest sipped, Sweet Tea Vodka & Lemonade out of mason jars for a real southern experience, this paired perfectly with the passed Hors D’oeuvres. Stephen Darby of Epic Charleston really got the crowd moving and grooving.  In true Charleston form Brigid & Joe had a sparkler departure and rode off in a bike taxi as the new     Mr. & Mrs. Yoder.

Amber & Kyle

July 11th, 2014

Glitter always makes for a fabulous party but add a pop of color like coral and we have spectacular party. TEC and SYG teamed up to create a never seen before floral lighting installment over the dance floor, where guest danced the night away to Atlanta Rhythm & Groove band.

We love a bride with a sweet tooth! Amber & Kyle were definitely Mint to Be, and with the help of SYG we created a “seriously sweet” candy station. Our friends at River Street Sweets came out and made candied pecans for everyone at the reception.

Janie & Will

June 23rd, 2014

Natural colors including blush and light hues of green blended beautifully with the River Course at Kiawah providing a neutral atmosphere for Janie & Will’s summer wedding. Brighter pinks and oranges found in the floral and bridesmaid’s dresses excitedly popped off of the more neutral surroundings.

We absolutely love the floral mantel, which we were able to create with help from our friends at SYG. The mantel framed three wedding cakes masterfully created by Jim Smeal, two of which were done with blush, ombre frosting. The bride, groom and guests enjoyed lightening up the dance floor with glowing tambourines while jamming it out to the Maxx.

At the end of the dance party, Janie & Will made their exit while guests showered them with rose petals, riding away on a their very own tandem bike.

Paper that Impresses

May 22nd, 2014

We always go out with a bang, by why not start with one? We love a creative invitation that incorporates design elements from your wedding. Choosing a fun envelope liner such as this orange ikat or golden sparkles is a surprising way to give your guests a sneak peak of what’s to come!

Love it so much…why not do it twice? Jazz up both your invitation and save the dates for double the fun.
