“Gillian and Tom wanted their wedding to reflect the heart of Charleston and we think they nailed it! Emily from Breeze helped tie in their amazing location, colors of green, gray and blue, with their other gorgeous details. Their wedding embodied the true essence of a southern wedding.” – Riverland Studios

I’m obsessed with these bridesmaid’s necklaces!!! The pop of bright green looks amazing along with the gray dresses and green bouquets… they are so gorgeous that I know these girls will wear them again and again. It’s always great if your bridesmaids can get second uses out of their day wedding attire.


“Seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony.  We didn’t do first look photos and it made it so much more exciting to see each other at that big moment. We couldn’t stop smiling!


…our DIY project was our placecards.  We used cards and an Oak tree stamp that we found at Paper Source.  The tree matched the design we used on our invitations and programs.  My sister has nice handwriting and she helped us write out the names for our of our guests.  Luckily our wedding was smaller with 63 guests – so it wasn’t a huge task!


…something old was my grandmother’s wedding rings that we tied to my bouquet, something new was my dress and shoes, something borrowed was my earrings – I borrowed them from my sister who wore them at her wedding, and my something blue were my toenails : )  Beach Bum Blue from Essie.


…don’t leave the details for the last minute.  We were so happy to have all of our planning done in advance so that the week before the wedding we really weren’t stressed at all.  We had time to spend and enjoy with family in the last few days leading up to the wedding.” – Gillian, the bride
