Charlotte + Mark



Markie Walden

A historic South Carolina home shared with the property of the Governor's mansion surrounded by manicured gardens left the perfect Spring setting for Charlotte and Mark's Spring wedding day. It was only fitting to incorporate shades of blue with the couple's ties to politics and the background of the property.

The Couple: Charlotte and Mark

Given how they first met, working on a political campaign together, Charlotte was quick to decide the colors/theme for the wedding: Burgundy, shades of blue and white. Charlotte and Mark's love for politics and history was intertwined in the details throughout this wedding day.

The Location: The Lace House

A historic mansion and government-run property seemed only fitting for the couple in politics to wed on the SC Governors Grounds. Cocktail hour was held in the historic homes' various rooms i.e. piano room, the parlor where guests were greeted by a custom escort cards before ushered to the reception on the mansion mall outdoor area. Gold animal figurines with accompanying signage that read "Find Your Party Animal"

The Attire:

Classic with a twist! Our groom started the nuptials with a classic black tux and then changed for the reception into a custom velvet blue dinner jacket. A perfect ode to the upcoming Pantone color of the year: Classic Blue. A customized dinner jacket by Granger Ownings of South Carolina. Our bride wore a beautiful full dress by BHLDN and her third wedding generation veil was worn by both her sisters before!

The Details:
Both mothers of the couple wore rich blue gowns to match Charlotte's vision. A local live painter

depicted the colorful events of the evening on the dance floor. A classic three-course meal served on the Mansion Mall of the governor's mansion had a live band playing in front of the Governor's extravagant fountain. The wedding cake awaited at the edge of the dancefloor under the three crystal chandeliers that floated from the sky.

The Bridal Party:

The maids had another pop of color, a rich burgundy, which complimented the florals added to Charlotte's loose and natural bouquet. The groomsmen wore the classic black formal wear to compliment the grooms first look.
