Simply Southern Elegance

Ali + Jeremy | May 6, 2017

Gold, blush and neutral colored wedding with an elegant and southern feel at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

The perfectly mismatched bridesmaid’s dresses, the soft touch of greenery and the elegant feel of all the gold accents came together to create this simply southern styled wedding that we can’t get enough of. The Spanish moss-covered trees that filled the pictures, the ornate iron gates and jaw dropping wooden reception space created some of the most beautiful backdrops for the day.

Ali and Jeremy were married on a perfect spring afternoon. The ceremony was set underneath a wooden pergola on the venue’s dock overlooking the water. A beaded chandelier hung in the center while sheer drapery wrapped the wooden beams. 

Guest began to fill the wooden crossback chairs that lined the space while Ali and Jeremy were just across the property about to see one another for the first time.

While Ali was inside securing her veil in place and buttoning her dress, Jeremy took his place outside beneath the property’s Spanish moss lined trees. He wore a classic navy blue suit and simple blush tie. Once he was in place, Ali stepped outside.

When Ali reached Jeremy, he turned around and his jaw nearly hit the floor. She stunned in her form fitting cream tinted, all-lace gown. She wore her hair mostly down in curls, with a few pieces pinned back with a dainty golden headband. It was perfection.

After the private moment, the couple was joined by their mismatching bridal party for some pictures. Between the groomsmen’s suits in all different shades of navy and the bridesmaid’s different textured and designed gold and cream dresses, everything looked like it belonged together.

While the rest of the bridal party headed to the ceremony to take their places at the altar, Ali went inside to add one finishing touch to her look. She added a tulle skirt and bejeweled belt to her dress, and it was stunning.

Ali made her way down the aisle and back into the hands of Jeremy. The couple exchanged personal vows, as well as some laughs along the way. Eventually, they exchanged rings, kissed and walked back down the aisle, this time as husband and wife.

Once the couple disappeared into the distance for some more pictures around the picturesque grounds, guests were invited to the courtyard outside the reception building for cocktail hour.  

While guests enjoyed cocktails as the sunset set, the finishing touches were put on the reception. The all wooden room was wrapped with market lights and set with round guest tables in a classic white colored linen, as well as a long wooden farm table for the bridal party. All the tables were set with wooden crossback chairs to compliment the wood of the building. 

Every table was decorated with an assortment of different sized hurricane vases filled with pillar candles, gold votive candles and loose greenery. A gold rimmed china dinner plate was topped with a neutral colored napkin that was tied off with loose greenery. The gold silverware was the icing on top of the cake on this table. 

The head table was set similarly with a long garland of loose greenery and florals with hurricane vases filled with candles and gold votives sprinkled throughout. A different trio of dinner plates sat on top of a gold rimmed glass charger for an extra elegant look. The same neutral colored linen topped with loose greenery and gold silverware tied the look back into the rest of the room. 

Across the room was the dessert table set up on a rustic wooden table in front of an all brick fireplace. The mantle on the fireplace was lined with candles and greenery. A similar look lined the dessert table, woven in between the dessert stands. In the center of the table was a gold pedestal stand and a single tiered all white cake that sat on top. A simple cake topper with the word “love” in cursive dressed the cake up just perfectly. 

When the room was ready, guests found their name on the handwritten windowpane seating chart and headed inside to find their seats. Once everyone found their seats, Ali and Jeremy made their entrance into the room and headed right for the dance floor to share their first dance as husband and wife. 

After the first dances, dinner was served. And after that, the dance floor filled right back up and didn’t empty until the end of the night. Everyone headed outside to send the newlyweds off with a sparkle!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
