Tana & Patrick

When Tana and Patrick decided to hold their destination wedding in Charleston, they wanted a venue with a simple, laid-back type of feeling. They also wanted a resort style but not something that would be stuffy or too far away from downtown Charleston. The choice was easy. The Charleston Harbor Resort in Mount Pleasant was ideal. Just on the other side of the new bridge, with easy access to scenic tours and located right on the Charleston Harbor with Water Taxi access attached to the hotel.

With a skyline of the City of Charleston directly across the harbor, the hotel boasts a man-made beach area that was the perfect area to hold their wedding ceremony. Palms tress swayed in the breeze as The Pantasia Steel Band played Caribbean music for the formalities and cocktail hour.

Seashells and starfish were nestled into the girls bouquets and matching boutonnieres with natural raffia and dendrobium orchids were worn by the gentlemen in the bridal party.
The mothers of the bride and groom carried small nosegays and after the ceremony dropped their small treasures in these cute little vases with embellishments of dendrobium orchids and raffia.
Accent florals were also created for a Memory Table (in honor of the bride's grandmother) along with other touches for the banquet tables.
Pew markers for the ceremony were looped on the tops of natural wood folding chairs.

Tables were laid with pale green linens to match the theme with large Monstera leaves used for placemats to hold natural themed centerpieces. The bride's invitations also had monstera leaves on them.

Small seating areas were created with wicker settee furniture and plain white cushions.

Simple accents for the banqueting tables and bar areas added the final touches to this beautiful day.
