{Wedding Highlight – Lindsay Moore & Brian}

23 Dec

Lindsay Moore and Brian celebrated their one-year anniversary last month– congrats you two! Their gorgeous fall wedding was held on November 12, 2011 at St. Stephen’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lexington, SC with a reception that followed at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Columbia, SC.

The florals for this wedding were absolutely STUNNING! Scott Jones with American Floral did an amazing job creating high and low centerpieces for this sit-down dinner as well as constructing a dramatic, hydrangea-filled arch as you entered the ballroom. Simply gorgeous!

My favorite parts of this wedding were the gorgeous colors, linens and attention to detail. We added an orchid to each place setting that was also accented with custom menu cards, lush lamour napkins and silky Shantung linens.

We were also honored to have this wedding featured in the Carolina Bride Winter/Spring 2012 issue. What a gorgeous, gorgeous bride! Much love to Lindsay Moore & Brian on their first year of marriage.

Emerald beauty…

We really want to thank all of the beautiful brides who stopped by our booth on Sunday, January 8, 2012 at the WNOK Bridal Expo. We had such a wonderful time meeting so many brides… and their cute grooms! The bridal show was so much fun… we highly recommend it to any newly engaged bride and groom… as well as the MOBs and MOGs. Every vendor offers such a different and stylish motif to their booth… it’s fun just to see how everyone sets up and comes up with such creative ideas!

At Meagan Warren Weddings, our theme for this year’s booth all started with an antique, emerald-green vase I found at antique store in Columbia, SC. It reminded me of ‘The Wizard of Oz‘ and the Emerald Green City… however, I decided to put a more vintage/chic spin on things. My fabulous mother, Debbie Calvo, is an interior decorator and arranged the beautiful flowers. Kudos to mom!

Here are a few favorite shots from the show:


And… kudos to the fabulous Lori Anna Varnadoe for assisting me at our booth that day. We met at Clemson years ago, and Lori Anna has worked many, many weddings with me since then. She is always such a pleasure to be around!

We hope to see you at the next bridal show at the State Fairgrounds… coming up on Sunday, February 26, 2012. Save the date for the 31st Annual St. Andrews Woman’s Club Bridal Showcase – click here for more info.

We are still researching ideas for the show… but for now, be thinking of navy and blush colors. Oh la la!

{Happy Planning!}


Merry, Merry {or Marry, Marry…}

21 Dec

There are so many wonderful things to be thankful for this year. 2011 has been a fabulous year, and it has flown by in a flash. One of our 2012 resolutions is to start blogging… regularly… at Meagan Warren Weddings. Hold on to your veils…

So, we’d like to start with a wedding we planned in Manning, South Carolina on October 2, 2010. We are ecstatic to say that this lovely couple now has a little one of their own… born just a few days ago to be exact. Congratulations to Meigs & Troy and their sweet, baby boy… John Rollins. We LOVE it when brides and grooms get married, and we get to see them start a family. It’s the little things in life that make it special, right?

This is the beautiful bride and me just as she arrived to the church on her wedding day… and a few of our favorite shots from the wedding day, all courtesy of Kathy Moore Powell of Moore Photographing.
