Summer Wedding: Colleen & Andrew, Calhoun Beach Club

the most beautiful wedding took place at the Calhoun Beach Club in July.  Colleen & Andrew could not have been a more delightful pair to design for. they are kind & passionate...generous & full of laughter. with their home base in New York, we did a lot of long distance planning & brainstorm sessions along with visits while they were in town.  Colleen has the most darling mother who was a tremendous help throughout the planning process!

and, Colleen & Andrew's wedding film is beyond beautiful - a masterpiece created by John of Vibrant Film. enjoy!

 
the flowers consisted of dainty blooms perfectly suited for Colleen - in white, buttercup yellow & summer green. Colleen loves flowers - and they were everywhere...

 


the most darling wedding gown...



lemon leaf wreaths adorned the ceremony doors and the stairway shown led the wedding party down to the custom built ceremony Chuppah...covered with fabric that was a family heirloom.




following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the gorgeous patio outdoors.  what a perfect summer day it was!  potted succulent plants were accented with Spanish moss in gold glitter square pots & mercury glass votives for the evening.



later on, dinner & dancing was enjoyed by guests all night long...

the charming Calhoun Beach Club & beautiful champagne and pewter linens supplied by Linen Effects accented the gold chivari chairs and set the tone for the evening.  



fresh lavender sprigs were a must for the day!  we had them flown in from a lavender farm in Washington State.  they smelled divine & were the perfect touch for each place setting & champagne glass!

 

clear candlestick holders & mercury glass vessels were designed with white stock, anemone, hydrangea, china mums, ranunculus & dendrobium orchids...buttercup garden roses, stock & sedum filled the Solarium room.


 
Mr & Mrs chairs and a beautiful cake for Andrew & Colleen!
