One of our Spring brides decided to use a bumble bee on her Save-the-Date cards (craftily created by Studio R Designs) and has continued with the bee motif for her wedding.

While recently perusing past issues of wedding magazines- we found this theme-appropriate cake.

How neat would it be for our bride to incorporate her organic, honeybee inspired motif into her desserts as well? Her dinner menu is highlighted with all local, organic ingredients- such as local grass-fed beef & organic, farm fresh eggs. She has worked hand in hand with Fat Hen catering to transform all their sweetened items – such as Sweet Pepper Relish, Country Fresh Lemonade & Flavored Butters- by using honey rather than a sugar or sugar substitute.

Regarding her wedding favors, she is thinking about  gifting little jars of organic honey from Bee City, a local bee farm in Summerville, to each of her wedding guests.
Remember how we said we love incorporating birdcages in to weddings? Well, we found the perfect one for this bee-themed wedding at Barreveld. It’s honey-comb shaped!

    Hi Melissa,
    My name is Evita and I am a fellow Charleston resident. My wedding featured some styling involving our incorporation of bees in our aesthetic. We had a hexagonal cake toped with a beehive shaped cake addition, and just before we cut it our caterer poured honey on it. The honey was also local. We also served homemade mead and we made our hexagonal planter centerpieces from reclaimed fencing.
