Royal Wedding: Kate & Will





Y'all knew this was coming! We've been anticipating this day for a long time, and we're always giving you updates on the Royal wedding. The moment we all waited for was well worth it.

Didn't y'all love seeing all the fascinators? We're not sure how some guests could see over some of the ladies in front of them!



Always love a David & Victoria Beckham sighting. Very "posh" indeed.



How cute was Harry too? We couldn't help to notice how good looking William's little brother was in his uniform!




Let's talk about Kate's dress. One word...STUNNING! We have had several girlfriends call us with their feedback this morning all agreeing that they now want a similar dress to Kate's. How could you not? I'm sure we will be seeing some very similar styles walking down our aisles here in Charleston!



Did you know that Kate's train was over 6 feet long! The Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown is described on the royal website as "ivory and white satin gazar. The skirt echoes an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats. The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of Alexander McQueen's designs. "



Probably one of our favorite parts of the day were when William & Kate shared not one but two kisses on the balcony above the crowds. Way to break tradition! We love it. It just shows how modern they are and how in love they are! We also loved when they rode out in the Astin Martin.



Although we doubt we'll get a peak into the reception, we at least get to take a look at the cake!



All in all, this wedding was truly royal and well worth our wait. We loved all the details!

Congratulations to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge!

Real Wedding: Ann & Ryan

This wedding was near and dear to our hearts and we are thrilled to finally be able to share it with you. We were so honored when one of our friends, Ann Ward, asked us to coordinate her March 5th wedding. We first met Ann when we joined the Charleston chapter of the Junior League and instantly adored her. She has a contagious laugh and is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Our group of Junior League girls was anxiously awaiting Ryan to pop the question and we were so happy when she announced their engagement! So, we jumped at the chance to plan their March wedding.

If there was one way to describe the color scheme for this soiree, it is BOLD! How fantastic are the colors? Probably our favorite phrase of the day was "Man, it really looks like spring in here!" From the colors to the fabulous floral arrangements done by Charleston Stems, this event really kicked off our spring wedding season.

We have to send a HUGE thank you to Heather Forsythe for sending us these images. She did a phenomenal job. Thank you, Heather!

These pictures speak for themselves, y'all! See all the details below...



The invitations and all paper goods were designed and printed by Remember Me in Moorestown, NJ, Ann's hometown.







Y'all, let's take a minute to talk about Ann's style for her wedding weekend. You can see her lovely dress here by Emerald, but don't fail to notice the fuschia accessories. She also had all white/cream outfits for every event she had going on from Thursday-Sunday complete with some type of hot pink or fuchsia fascinator!



The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in downtown Charleston.
The guests were greeted by a bagpiper on the steps of the Cathedral.





Naturally, with such an elegant church, you would expect a ceremony to be very prim and proper. Well, the children thought otherwise. These cuties below ran down the aisle giggling the whole way!




Ann's mother was stunning on the day of the wedding. What a fabulous hat!




Like mother like daughter, Ann was such a gorgeous bride. These shots are just so timeless. We can't get over how beautiful she looked!










The reception was held at the Daniel Island Club. A huge thank you to their staff, especially Erin Foster! Y'all were fantastic to work with and made our job so much easier!









After the bride and groom made their entrance into the room, they did not share a "typical" first dance. They wowed the crowd with a hysterical choreographed dance to "Get Down Tonight" by KC and the Sunshine Band.








The guests danced the night away and got to enjoy a fun photo booth that was complete with some great props. We even joined in on the fun!




The bride changed into her 2nd outfit of the night for the big send off. She wore a fuschia fascinator and fuschia shoes with her white dress and fur wrap.The happy couple was sent off with a sparkler exit and rode off in a British Black Cab.





Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Treat!
