{Wedding Highlight ~ Catherine & Alex}

15 Oct

Catherine and Alex just celebrated their one-year anniversary – congrats you two! Their vibrant Fall wedding was held on October 1, 2011 at The Hall at Senate’s End in Columbia, SC.

Catherine chose a very jewel-toned color palette reminiscent of colorful gemstones… hot pink, bright orange and deep purple. So, we had a lot of fun playing around with different fabrics and textures. The oh-so-talented Vicki Walker, with Carolina Blossoms, created Catherine’s beautiful florals.

Catherine added a few, very personal touches and even made the favors {a sweet package of hot cocoa with marshmallows that had hearts cut out of the middle… with a tag that said ‘c + a… our warmest thanks… 10.1.11.’  We heart you Catherine & Alex… thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

{Wedding Highlight ~ Caroline & David}

8 Oct

This couple has such a special story… the first day that I met with them to discuss their wedding… the mother of the groom and I realized that I had grown up with the groom. David and I actually went to kindergarten together. Small world!

The story of how Caroline and David met is even more interesting… while the mother of the groom was in the hospital – Caroline happened to be her nurse. The mother thought Caroline was so dear and gorgeous, and she decided to set her son up with the nurse! They went on a few dates, got engaged… and so the story goes!

We were honored to be a part of their beautiful, Fall wedding. Caroline is one, gorgeous bride – she is originally from Brazil. The colors consisted of burnt oranges, chocolate browns, rosy reds and touches of gold. And, to add in that touch of ‘home,’ the menu consisted of Brazilian traditions, such as Fresh Tilapia with a Mango Salsa, Polenta Cakes, Black Beans, and more. The couple even had a choreographed First Dance to the song ‘Time of My Life’ from the movie, Dirty Dancing. Omgeeeee…. we love. So, take a glimpse at these gorgeous photographs captured by the talented Amanda Zabrocki Photography. Enjoy!
