    I’m planning a pom pom toss too! I was wondering about how many it would take per guest. Their photos turned out splendidly!

Those of you who are devotees of our print edition might recognize Emily + Monty, the lovely couple we chose to kick off the V3 Real Weddings section. Photographed by A Bryan Photo and with a reception designed by none other than Calder Clark of Calder Clark Designs, this is one for the record books. Fun fact: it was also the first wedding we accepted for V3. Appropriate enough timing, then, as I just sent a happy email to the photographer behind the very first real wedding accepted for V4 (!!!). Can’t wait to see the goodness in store? Be sure to pick up a copy of V3 to read the rest of Emily + Monty’s story! We’ll be back with more snaps from the reception soon…

Well, ladies and gents, we’re back from Katharine’s wedding.  It was incredible, and not for any superficial reason (though the dress was oh my goodness stunning and the cake was just like she told you it would be), but because Katharine and Kyle were so obviously, completely in love, and everyone in attendance was lucky to be a part of it.  And their ceremony was amazing.

However, life goes on after a wedding, it seems (shocker!), and we thought we’d start off the week with a lovely rehearsal dinner from our friends at Calder Clark Designs, who planned the Southern shindig.  Guests gathered at Charleston’s Confederate Home to celebrate Jennifer + Ryan’s marriage.  Blossoms Events took care of the flowers, with Cru Catering presenting the food, Ashley Bakery supplying the cake, and Dulles Designs on stationery.  Making this an extra-special feature for me, however, are the pennant escort cards, which Calder ordered from my Etsy shop, Peach & Pearl.  It’s so fun to see them through the talented eye of photographer Gayle Brooker!  Read on for a few more details…

From Calder + Caitlin at Calder Clark Designs:

“The couple chose to host their rehearsal dinner at The Confederate Home in downtown Charleston.  In an effort to add a modern twist to the classic Southern charm of the venue, we chose a crisp color palette of apple green and stark white.  We draped the dinner tables in custom green linens and accented those with our collection of vintage milk glass in varying shapes and sizes.  The milk glass pieces were filled with fresh flowers in tonal shades of white and green.  Other signature elements include rattan chargers and handmade sweetgrass rosettes (a Charleston surcee); these natural elements complemented the historic setting and contributed to the Lowcountry feel of the celebration.”

Congratulations, Jennifer + Ryan!  We’re sure your wedding was equally as lovely!
