I Dream of Summer Weddings

Feeling a nip in the air and seeing the leaves start to fade around us, we know that this summer is coming to a quick close. As always, it goes by way too fast and we can never believe it’s over. In an attempt to fend off our impending summer sadness, we’ve turned to a bright and cheerful Luke Wilson Special Events stunner to get us through the last of summer 16.

First of all, The Middleton Place. Wow. Have you seen any place like this before? Between the historic gardens (America’s oldest landscaped gardens, to be exact), the house museum dating back to 1755, the plantation stable yards (horses and sheep on your wedding day?) and the incredible Ashley River views we are just giddy. Perfect venue, check. But seriously, just looking at these impeccably manicured gardens dotted with bright purple and pink flowers could get us through winter.

Then there’s this gorgeous ceremony. Set against the water, the couple said their “I Dos” under a dreamy Branch Design Studio floral arrangement. The first half of the service was a tradition Indian ceremony with the second half led by the groom’s father, a pastor, in a traditional Christian vow exchange. The bride, in her beautifully embroidered ivory sari with rose quartz detailing, and the groom sporting a coordinating pink bowtie, were a sight to be seen as they walked down the aisle with white rose petals floating around them.

And of course, there’s the party. Decked out in white and gold décor, with the sweetest touches of pink, it was just sparkling under the chandelier-strung tent. We love how Luke Wilson mixed in different gold patterns on the tables and chairs to give the tent so much dimension! With a blend of hydrangeas in tall glass vases and dainty arrangements in short gold vases, the flowers were in full bloom. Our obvious favorite? The ombre floral wall from Branch Design Studio framing the bride & groom.

Between all the attention to detail, the bright colors and the shimmering golds perfectly captured by Hyer Images, this dream Charleston wedding is definitely one that will keep us dreaming through the fall!

PS – The night ended with the newlyweds sharing a magical kiss under fireworks against a cotton candy-colored sky. Dreams do come true!
