The William Aiken House, nestled along the popular King Street in downtown Charleston, is a distinguished National Historic Landmark. This beautiful house and it’s equally stunning grounds make for the most heavenly setting for a romantic Southern wedding. This Charleston wedding venue can host up to 500 guests, and boasts a private garden and two spacious courtyards for outdoor weddings and entertaining.  
 
Emily and Joshua selected this venue for their winter nuptials, complimenting the space well with their selected wedding color palette of Dusty Blue, Blush Pink, and earthy accent tones.

THE WEDDING INVITATIONS
 
For their custom wedding invitations, we used a crushed velvet paper to layer behind the printed invitation card, and added a Gold Foil paint brush stroke to the invitation itself, adding a bit of a soft, artistic vibe to the custom invitation suite. We then carried out that same Gold Foil element onto the clients’ Blush Pink shimmer envelope liner. (PRO TIP: Gold Foil in small details is affordable, and still adds a luxurious look to your wedding invitations).
 
The clients also opted for custom calligraphy for the guest addresses on their mailing envelopes, using a darker Dusty Blue ink. Finishing off the look were vintage stamps in an array of Dusty Blue, Blush Pink, and earthy neutral tones on the invitation envelopes. Oh, how I wish we had snapped a picture before we mailed them - words do not do them justice! It was the prettiest color combination. I’m sure guests were truly WOWed upon their arrival!

WEDDING DAY
 
The couple tied the knot in the private gardens, with a small group of their closest family and friends in attendance. Their wedding ceremony program booklets were tied closed with a Dusty Rose crushed velvet ribbon - a texture we continued to carry out throughout the rest of their wedding day paperie.

Immediately after the ceremony, guests made their way to the courtyard, where family style reception tables awaited. Romantic lighting from varying heights of tapered candles and votives added the perfect amount of sparkle to the early evening dining experience. The florals were nested into vintage metal compotes, and featured a variety of floral textures and unique color tones to coordinate with the wedding day style. The tables boasted the most incredible linens – just look at that Blush Pink silk tablecloth! Ooo la la. This setup practically transports you to a French countryside, it’s so romantic and chic.

I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
 
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
