Lauren and Brent were married at the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation on a gorgeous Sunday in October. As a project manager herself, Lauren was super organized, detailed, and had a clear vision of what she wanted her southern wedding to be starting from day one. There were so many fun touches throughout this wedding for their guests to enjoy- from a champagne welcome station prior to the ceremony to a colorful confetti popper recessional to lawn games during cocktail hour, there was not one detail left out from this perfect wedding.
Charleston’s heatwave this fall was a gracious welcome to these northern traveling guests who came from as far as Philadelphia and New York. The bride’s parents have Sicilian roots and how could they not with a father of the bride like Joe! Joe joked with our planner, Jacqueline, that he was Irish but true Sicilians always find each other. Connecting through the motherland, Sicilian food and fishing, by the end of the evening Joe was introducing Jacqueline to family members as a long lost cousin. He even mentioned the newly discovered revelation to the bride as he was walking her down the aisle!
As guests sat down in the Carriage House for the reception, a two-course dinner provided by B. Gourmet of an autumn salad and an entrée duo of beef short ribs and shrimp n grits was served. The dinner was topped off perfectly with a selection of Swank’s custom donuts and a coffee station. Lowcountry Entertainment kept the dance floor rockin’ all night long and was even coerced into an “after the last song” song request of “Call Me Maybe.” We wish Lauren and Brent nothing but happiness in starting their new life together!
