Real Wedding: Lauren and Chad






First of all, we would like to say "Cheers" to the New Year! 2010 has been a wonderful year for us here at Sweetgrass Social and we're so thankful for all of our wonderful couples that we have been privileged to work with!

So with all that being said, we know that we have been neglecting our blog and so we figured we should come back with a BANG! There's not a better way to do it than with Lauren and Chad's New Years wedding. We had so much fun with these two and couldn't have picked a sweeter bride to work with. Lots of logistic planning went into this New Years gathering as the ceremony was held downtown and then the guests were shuttled back to Mt. Pleasant to the always gorgeous Boone Hall Plantation. This couple was lucky to be surrounded by so many loving friends and family to not only kick of their new lives together, but also 2011! We couldn't imagine a better way to bring in the New Year!

There is one detail of this wedding that we cannot neglect. THE DRESS! Lauren's dress was purchased right here in Charleston at the Gown Boutique of Charleston. However, it wasn't one that you can just find on the rack. Lauren had two gowns combined into one. The creation turned out beautifully. Below are some of her gorgeous bridal portraits. She is currently Sweetgrass Social's model on our facebook page, as well!






Lauren and Chad had an absolutely stunning New Year's Even wedding! The ceremony took place downtown at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul and the reception was at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall.




We always love working with the fabulous Liz Duren of Liz Duren Photography, who captured all of these wonderful moments.





Lauren gave Chad a letter to read before the ceremony. We think this is such a sweet idea!





Lauren and Chad are such a fun couple and they really let their personalities shine through with their choice of decor. The Cotton Dock was the ideal setting for this black tie affair. The rustic feel of the building complemented the chic black and white theme extremely well! Leave it to Justin Wham of JW Weddings and Events to create the most fabulous floral arrangements. The table centerpieces were topped with huge white feathers- perfect for a New Year's wedding!








Not only did the cake look beautiful with just a touch of sparkle in the frosting, but it also tasted like Heaven. We can always count on Hayden of Ashley Bakery to make not only a beautiful cake, but a great tasting one, as well!





This was such a fun crowd to work with! After everyone filled up on the delicious food from New Dream Catering, they danced the night away. We love this shot of Lauren and her Mom breaking it down on stage!







We sent them off with a sparkler exit. Their transportation was provided by the Black Cab company.



Lauren and Chad were so much fun to work with! We are so honored to have been a part of their special day!
