Charleston, SC Spring Wedding at Francis Marion Hotel
Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? I gained inspiration from magazines, Google, Pinterest and Instagram. I did not have a specific theme. I wanted something nice and elegant. To complete my look, my colors came from the
Let’s talk wedding decor. How did you decorate your space for the ceremony and the reception? Was any part of the decor DIY?
My ceremony was located in the Gold Room at the Francis Marion. The essence of this room alone spoke in high volume in that, it’s very own nature. It did not need a whole lot of décor. This room was naturally perfect allowing the elegancy of colors to fulfill and complete the whole setting of the room and the purpose. The aisle were decorated with tall gold stands holding the beautiful vases half filled with water displaying the floating candles. The flowers were beautiful. None of the décor were DYI besides my florist with her beautiful flower arrangements.
What were the florals like in your wedding? I chose to use flowers that were in season. In which introduced me to some flowers that I had never seen before. My floral arrangements were beautiful and elegant. All of the flowers were real throughout the ceremony and reception. I wanted to make sure I had some type of roses with in my bouquet and my florist made it happened. She also included the roses in the bridesmaid bouquet as well. I did not have a ceremony backdrop because of the fireplace, mirror and mantel. There was a beautiful centerpiece on the mantel that included different flowers and I also used this for my head table. I repurpose my flowers for my big day.
Did you personalize the day in any way? What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding? I had a duet (drummer and trombone) for my guests during the cocktail hour. I personalize my day by having them play for my bridal party as we walked to Marion Square from the Francis Marion Hotel. It was an Awwww
How did you meet? We met at Applebee’s
What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?
I would have to say the whole day. There were a lot of things going on and I enjoyed each moment, but if I had to choose I would say our first dance. We danced to LTD – “Love Ballad”.
Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day? If you are planning a wedding make sure you give yourself enough time. This will give you time to explore your venues, coordinators and etc. You need to start early so you don’t have to be stressed out on your day
