Rhinebeck 'vs' Charleston

We're always a little hesitant to encourage the extremely warm outdoor weddings in the midst of our southern summers and then they turns out so lovely that all's well in the office of A Charleston Event again. Of course it always takes us three days to recover, but that's another story.

Southern weddings should be charming, characteristic and reminiscent of the city in which it is held. Charleston never lets us down and even with the heat, everyone manages to look cook and beautiful.

Gabrielle and John got married on the same day as Chelsea Clinton and if I do say so myself, Gabrielle looked even more beautiful walking down an aisle carpeted with four different colored pink rose petals with her favorite gerbera daisy and long pink hanging amyranthus nestled in orb aisle markers.

The setting may not have been the beautiful estate in Rhinebeck New York but one of Charleston's oldest plantations, Lowndes Grove, offered an even more charismatic backdrop including large oak trees with spanish moss draping down in front of the river side ceremony site.

We absolutely love the sedate colors that Gabrielle chose for her reception as well. Black and white with bright pink tones and pops of her favorite teal.

Guests dined to the wonderful flavors of FISH passed hors d'oeuvres and a wonderful menu with southern flair and flavors.

The guests danced the night away to the sounds of Two Three Ways by Other Brother Entertainment and ate wedding cake by The Flour Shop. We simply cannot wait to see the professional shots by Photography by Terry Inc. In the meantime, these pictures will have to do and let's face it, it is more fun to say you got married on the same day as a president's daughter, so why not show off a bit?
