Let the games begin

It’s not that often that we’re able to plan an afternoon soiree, but Laura Mabe and Dave Gardner wanted to take advantage of the amazing sunset at the fabulous Lowndes Grove Plantation.  It was the perfect time of year for such an event- Not too hot during the daytime ceremony, cool in the evening while everyone enjoys the beautiful sunset, and of course, a location to that makes all brides’ dreams a reality!

At  the reception, we provided an outlet for guests of all ages to enjoy. Channeling our school days art projects, we created a fun set of games on the side lawn. Guests enjoyed playing bocce, horseshoes, and croquet next to the water during the evening reception. From grandparents to grandchildren, it was clear this was a party favorite for all ages!

We also worked to create a beverage station everyone could enjoy. Serving Southern sweet tea, lemonade, and water with cucumber, our refreshing display was more than a place for guests to wet their whistle. From the hand tied and decorated mason jars to the personally be-ribboned beverage dispensers, this display was too precious for words!

The wedding decor centered around a photo of a wedding cake Laura found in a wedding magazine.  Covered in oak branches, leaves and Carolina Wrens, it proved to be the perfect inspiration for her sophisticated, yet rustic affair.  Ashley Bakery did an amazing of job recreating the confection, but with a few added touches of their own.  Not only did it look amazing, it was delish!
