Lauren and Josh’s destination wedding at the Legare Waring House features intimate touches with a vibrant color palette of purple and orange. Lauren had custom handkerchiefs made for her parents, each with its own unique message. Her elegant yet whimsical oatmeal blush cascading gown is designed by Watters. She paired the airiness of of her dress with stunning sequined plum heels. The ladies carried handcrafted bouquets by Wildflowers, INC. Bridesmaids toted a mix of soft hued roses while Lauren’s bridal bouquet was an arrangement of purple calla lilies.
Lauren added a twist to seeing Josh before the ceremony. She requested a surprise first look – where the groom is unaware that he is going to see his bride. Josh was taken to the wedding garden for his portraits, and Lauren quietly snuck up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder. Their reactions and loving embrace were amazing moments to witness. The pair braved rain drizzle and cold for outdoor portraits before marrying in front of the avenue of oaks. After their nuptials, they celebrated with their guests on the back patio. Stephen of EPIC provided an eclectic mix of music from country to pop. After a lowcountry meal served by Cafe Catering, Lauren and Josh cut a one-tiered white rosettes cake and shared delicious cupcakes all created by the Cake Stand. The ladies of Fabulous Fete designed a chic fall event and quickly adapted to changing weather conditions by adding heaters and handing out plum colored blankets to guests. Most wedding days do not go as planned, but they do go just right. Lauren and Josh’s wedding proves that.
