Southern fairytale wedding, and they overcame a lot to make their dream a reality. Tara had a near death experience when she was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism and spent two nights in the intensive care unit, with Brian by her side the entire time. After she recovered, she decided to take the wedding planning into her own hands instead of using a wedding planner, and we are sure glad she did! The final result is absolutely beautiful.
Pasha Belman Photography skillfully captured every last detail at the Mansfield and Wedgefield Plantations in Georgetown, South Carolina. These historic Southern plantations are filled with live oak trees, making for a dreamy ceremony under a canopy of Spanish moss and a breathtaking reception space to fulfill all of their wedding day wishes. A pink, ivory, and gold color palette gives an incredibly romantic feel to their nuptials. From their darling first look to their sweet first dance, you can see the love these two share, and that they enjoy every second they spend together.
And that dress… Tara looked stunning in a strapless sweetheart ball gown featuring detailing on the bust and a tiered skirt, not to mention the dreamy blush pink tint. Her bridesmaids matched her look perfectly with strapless blush dresses with draped sweetheart necklines. Brian and his groomsmen looked flawless in black tuxes and bow ties.
Towering white plume feather centerpieces are a sophisticated nod to the 1920s, while other centerpieces feature lush floral arrangements created by Colonial Florist bringing a secret garden feel to the day. Pink table linens are the perfect match for the gold chargers and gold-accented glasses on each table. White Chiavari chairs feature gold cushions to keep guests comfortable while adding a classic look to the reception space.
