When the sun goes down, how will you light up your wedding venue? Some venues require very little by way of decor because of the nature of their architecture and property elements. Seen here, the Governor Thomas Bennett House is one of those older Charleston properties that need very little by way of decor. The house illuminates itself with the grand veranda lights on. But note the difference of a few candles around the fountain. It now takes on another entirely different look.Its no secret that I love candle light and using tons of it at weddings just adds to the romance of the day itself. Candle lit ceremonies are some of the most precious of all and even when the ceremony is finished and the reception is going on full force, keeping these candles lit acts as a backdrop for photos and encourages guests to use all of the grounds so they can enjoy the entire property.
Centerpieces with hanging candles or uplights are still a popular favorite for decorating reception sites. This type of arrangement can be used on guest tables, banquet and serving stations, entrance lobbies and just about anywhere you need an extra touch of ambience and light.
