Any wedding planner will tell you it’s the small things that stand out. Here’s one of our favorite (and perfectly planned) fetes.
Company: Southern Protocol
Bride and groom: Sarah and Hartley Claypool
Designer: Lizz Akerman
Venue and location: Lowndes Grove Plantation, Charleston, SC
Photographer: Gayle Brooker
“Sarah embraced tradition, but it didn’t look dated,” says Akerman, Souther Protocol’s founder. To get the look just right, Akerman balanced soft pinks with cherry greens and turned to personalized elements, like a traditional guestbook done in the exact damask print used for the wedding linens.
Roses added a classic touch to wedding’s design. “Roses tend to give a bad rap, yet here they were perfect,” Akerman says.
Guests enjoyed the sunset from classic furniture placed at the water’s edge.
