Beautiful Southern Plantation Wedding: Tanya + Trevor

This beautiful southern plantation wedding is one for the record books! Tanya and Trevor were married this past May at the Litchfield Plantation in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. It was designed by Gigi Noelle Events, who handled an unexpected visitor well: Tropical Storm Ana. Although Tanya and Trevor planned to get married outdoors, they had to tent the wedding at the last minute. Many couples would have been bothered by a last minute change to plans, but Tanya and Trevor just rolled with it! In fact, Tanya was so high-spirited and happy to be marrying the love of her life that the storm did not upset her plans for the best day ever.

The bride and groom worked on wedding details together including making their own invitations, building an awesome beer trestle, and even a huge lawn Jenga game that was painted to match their wedding colors. There were rustic farm tables and a dessert/cake table, which featured “naked” cakes and yummy homemade desserts. They even had a kids table with activities to entertain them. As wedding favors, the couple made their own moonshine to give away to guests. They even had a custom corn hole game made, which was used as a guest book alternative! This is a beautiful handmade wedding at its finest! Read on to see the photos captured beautifully by Feuza Reis Studios.

Wine Country Wedding Video

Wilson tells us, “Heidi + Jeremiah’s Wedding at Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa, California on May 24, 2015 was a picture perfect wine country wedding. This video features a stunningly beautiful couple in a fun, upbeat style and it truly embodies what modern wedding videography is all about: crisp, clean, colorful shots artistically edited with a super happy, wine country vibe. Northern California Weddings are notorious for blue skies, lush vineyards, rich backdrops, down to earth couples, and rustic decor. Heidi + Jeremiah’s Wedding Video touches on all of these elements and leaves the viewer with a warm smile and a greater understanding of how to celebrate love amongst a field of green grapes.”

Mansion on Main Street Wedding: Charney & Rasheem

When newlywed Charney showed us photos of her dream wedding to Rasheem, we couldn’t wait to share them with you! Charney and Rasheem planned their beautiful Mansion on Main Street wedding in Voorhees, New Jersey. Charney tells us about their wedding planning experience and says,

“We wanted a wedding that displayed an African flair while exhibiting a sense of classic elegance. Our goal was simple: incorporate details that gave a nod to culture and blend it with our New Jersey roots by hosting it in our hometown among our closest family and friends. In honor of tradition we took part in a ‘Tasting of the Elements’ ceremony to demonstrate a commitment to remaining together no matter what life may bring. Additionally, we ‘tied the knot’ with a piece Kente cloth wrapped around our wrists to illustrate unity.”

She tells us how special her wedding day meant to them, continuing with, “Our wedding day was filled with so many memorable moments that we will cherish forever. Looking back, what made our wedding extra special was Rasheem’s grandmother, who was battling cancer, got to see her grandson get married before passing away three weeks later.”

Watch their day as it unfolded below, captured by Foster Ambitions Photography.

Once the bride and her bridesmaids were ready, they headed over to the ceremony where the groom was waiting. Here’s how they decorated their ceremony space:

I love the sign that leads guests to the ceremony reading, “Can I get a witness?” So cute!

Charney and Rasheem focused on every detail. They even had custom wedding programs designed, which looked amazing. They were designed to look like mini magazines.

And a cute sign one of the flower girls carried which read, “Rasheem, just wait until you see her”.
