DETAILS MAKE IT: “The tonal stationery suite by Dauphine Letterpress was the first thing I fell in love with when planning our wedding
and the envelope’s orange chevron liner eventually inspired the coral in our color palette
” says Julie. “I liked that hit of color.”
LUSH BLUSH: Bridal attendants carried bouquets of peach-hued tree peonies
Pink Finesse roses
and hypericum berries.
HAT TRICK: The couple offered male guests gray linen yarmulkes monogrammed with their initials and wedding date.
PRETTY PAPERS: Emilie Dulles at Dulles Designs worked with Julie and Michael to incorporate the laurel wreath logo from their invitations onto a program to be handed out prior to the ceremony. “We felt a program was important for guests who weren’t familiar with a Jewish wedding ceremony
” explains the bride.
SITTING PRETTY: During the short ceremony
guests perched atop benches painted Charleston green. The charming seating choice seemed a natural fit with Runnymede’s plantation grounds and respected the vista that Julie and Michael had selected as the setting for their nuptials.
SAVVY SHOPPING: “The bridesmaids’ dresses were a happy accident
” says the bride
who chose a simple and flattering draped dress from the Wedding Library’s ready-to-wear collection after Badgley Mischka discontinued her original selection a month before the Big Day.
SACRED GROUND: Nestled under a grand live oak draped in Spanish moss
Julie and Michael exchanged “I dos” just before sunset on the banks of the Ashley River.
SHORE THING: Julie's Badgley Mischka gown stood out against the dramatic riverside setting
as did Michael's Kenneth Cole tux.
SWEET AND SPICY: At a cocktail hour following the ceremony
servers (donning coral ties to complement the event) offered guests Cajun spice spiked lemonade
