PEN NAMED: Kristin Newman addressed the couple’s invitations in a casual calligraphy Lyndsey describes as “unique and beautiful.” The chocolate brown, gold, and cream colored suite gave guests a peek at the wedding’s palette.
LUCK O’ THE IRISH: Lyndsey gifted Brian shamrock-shaped cufflinks that she had been melted down from her pair of Irish Claddagh earrings (which symbolize friendship, love, and loyalty).
SUIT UP: Brian and his groomsmen wore classic boutonnieres of white spray roses.
FANCY FRIENDS: The bridesmaids’ floor-length Amsale gowns synced with both the color and vibe of the formal affair.
ALL EYES ON US: The bride wore Reem Acra; the groom, Calvin Klein from Berlin’s for men.
STRIKING A CHORD: Charlton Singleton of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra performed solo during the post-ceremony cocktail hour. For the reception, the conductor was joined by his band.
OUI, OUI: Lyndsey, who studied abroad in France for two years, chose for Kir Royales, a French spirit of champagne and raspberry, to be served during cocktail hour.
QUOTEWORTHY: Cocktail napkins featured the line from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, “If music be the food of love, play on.”
TIME TO DINE: Lyndsey says of the reception’s sit-down dinner: “Time slowed a bit when Brian and I sat at our sweetheart table, surrounded by all of our loved ones, and took a moment to really enjoy our first meal together.”
DON’T FORGET TO WRITE: In lieu of a traditional guest book, family and friends signed their well wishes for the couple on postcards collected from Lyndsey and Brian’s travels.
TWO-FACED: The four-tiered cake by The Cake Stand featured one side of smooth white icing, and another of cascading roses.
