Sponsor Love

We know y’all are always looking for amazing wedding vendors to surround yourselves with, so we thought we’d sign off for the weekend with a few gems that have recently joined the SW family.

It is NOT hard to find nice things to say about Joey + Jessica. In fact, it’s pretty much the easiest thing in the world. Their photography is jaw-dropping — so crisp and clean and light and beautiful — they’re super nice (I just had the pleasure of meeting them in person!), AND they shot our last cover. Needless to say, we are super honored to count them as a sponsor, and would encourage you all to hustle over to their site and hire them ASAP. After you’ve done that, you can check out their site!

Creating a wedding website can be a tad overwhelming if you’ve never really ventured into the world of web design. The process is easy, however, with Wedding Window by your side! They offer a step-by-step site wizard to guide you through the entire process, from template decisions to text inputting. With a great collection of themes to choose from — and colors that can be customized within each theme — there’s a site for every couple at Wedding Window!

From the minute Katherine joined the SW sponsor family, she won us over with her sweet personality, quick email response time, and fun branding. We’re sure all Katherine Miller Events brides feel the same way! Katherine is an ace at navigating the Charleston wedding market, infusing every event with charming details, fresh ideas, and plenty of style. Want proof? Just check out Amanda + Jared’s wedding that we featured earlier this month! (Posts here and here)

    Thanks so much for the mention SW! Great timing! We actually just launched two new wedding website themes on Friday — Favori and Anthology. Hope you like them!

Amanda + Jared clearly hit a home run with their Southern-inspired wedding attire, and we think their tented reception at the Gibbes Museum of Art is just as fabulous. (Anyone who uses twinkle lights gets an automatic star in my book!) The assorted donuts they passed out to guests at the end of the reception was an especially sweet touch, but it’s the lovely B&W shot of the newlyweds just before cutting their four-tiered confection from d’Lish Discriminating Desserts that really takes the cake. Thanks to the team at 509 Photo for indulging in my red wedding wish!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: Since we were moving abroad so quickly after our engagement, I knew finding “The Dress” would be a challenge. It was also essential to me that my mother be by my side for such an important and memorable moment in my life. Almost immediately, we planned a girls’ trip to scout out venues, flowers, caterers and a dress. The minute we stepped into the Gown Boutique of Charleston, we knew we were in the right place. After finding out more about me, my style and my vision, it didn’t take long to find the most ideal wedding dress match. The minute I tried on the Amy Kuschel “Jacqueline”, I knew we needed to look no further – it was just perfect.
Describe your wedding flowers: Gerbera daisies have been my favorite flower since I can remember, so it was only fitting that they be the focal point of our wedding flowers. My maids carried vivid yellow-orange bouquets wrapped in grapevine and mine matched their deep red dresses. At our altar stood two tall copper planters spilling luscious fall blooms of gerbera daisies, red dahlias, sunflowers, rover mums, orange roses, craspedia and tall curly willow branches. The table arrangements reflected the elegant and rustic fall décor with accents of bright yellows and browns while lanterns filled the courtyard with a glow as the sun went down.
Describe your wedding cake: Simple, elegant and delicious! The design on our cake mimicked the lines of my gown and included clusters of gerbera daisies to add a little extra pop of color. The square, four-tiered cake was precisely frosted with a Swiss meringue butter cream and each individual tier was a different flavor and filling.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? One of Jared’s many talents that I fell in love with early on in our relationship is his rendition of “Sweet Caroline” that he has been known to perform regularly at other people’s weddings. The moment he got up on stage in his sequined Neil Diamond vest at our very own wedding was indescribable – silence turned into a crowd going wild in mere seconds. I have never felt more excitement, love and energy coming from a single group of people in my entire life and I felt very lucky that these were the people we were surrounded by on our big day.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Right now we’re just enjoying the ride of being married and are fortunate to have the world at our doorstep. Life can change quickly and we’re just looking forward to being able to experience it together!

    […] Amanda and Jared‘s wedding took place at the Gibbes Museum of Art on October 16, 2010. The historic building was an excellent backdrop for Amanda’s color palette of rich fall colors–and her favorite flower, Gerbera daisies. Her maids donned crimson Jenny Yoo dresses, while the men wore stone-colored suits and custom Vineyard Vines ties! Their pineapple design was a Charleston-inspired element, since the fruit is our local symbol of hospitality. You can see the times (and more of A+J’s day) by peeking at Southern Weddings Part I & Part II. […]

    […] Gerbera daisies + sunflowers immediately make me think of fall. And they were the perfect flowers for Amanda’s October wedding at the Gibbes Museum of Art. You can see more of her wedding here, as well as on the Southern Weddings blog (part I and part II). […]

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve been crushing on red weddings extra hard lately. Luckily, I think I got my fix with Amanda + Jared’s South Carolina celebration from 509 Photo. An added bonus: SW fave Katherine Miller planned and styled the couples’ ceremony and reception at the Gibbes Museum of Art. The bride’s structured sheath from Amy Kuschel is spot-on chic, but it’s her b’maids’ ruby red Jenny Yoo frocks that really got my heart racing. Love the fabric, the color, everything. The girls carried bright blooms from Branch Design Studio and darling clutches from BeeGee Bags that are oh-em-gee C-U-T-E! The gents’ stone-colored suits and custom Vineyard Vines ties round out a perfect Southern wedding!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We first met one early evening back in the Fall of 2005. Jared was beginning his MBA at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and I was settling into my career that had brought me to Charlottesville the year before. At a “Margarita’s By the Pool” party, we would come to find out that we had a lot in common, including mutual friends and a passion for college football (Jared was a Hokie and I was a Nittany Lion). Our friendship grew, and several months later we began to date – the rest is history!
Describe the proposal. Not long after we had made the decision to relocate to London, Jared surprised me with a weekend trip to New York City. He had planned a very detailed and meticulous proposal in Central Park revolving around a long-standing inside joke about croquet, but the weather did not cooperate. It had been pouring down rain for hours with no end in sight and Jared couldn’t wait any longer. In a moment of sweet innocence, he got down on one knee in the hotel room and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. We celebrated the entire weekend with our friends and family.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: extraordinary, revelrous and tasty.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The donut bar! We loved that our guests could take a sweet treat home with them at the end of the night.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? The venue itself is full of Southern history. The Gibbes Museum of Art first opened in the early 1900s. Our guests enjoyed perusing the galleries of “The Charleston Story”, highlighting the city’s significant people, places and periods throughout time. We also brought the flavor of the South into our cocktail menu with hors d’oeuvres that included pulled pork on sweet potato cakes, jumbo lump crab cakes and Anson Mills grit cakes topped with a shrimp and tasso gravy. Lastly, we included a truly Charleston exit to the evening with a classic horse-drawn carriage taking us away to our honeymoon suite.
