Going Places

A couple’s wedding getaway car may be one of the last details they decide upon, but it’s also the thing that leaves a final impression on wedding guests. Couples seeking a range of options will find them at Tri County Transport Limousines.

Rustic Elegance

All it takes is one drive down Boone Hall Plantation’s spectacular avenue of oaks to realize why it’s one of the most popular wedding venues, not only in Charleston, but in the entire United States. Between the stately plantation home, the centuries-old live oaks draped in Spanish moss, and the slowmoving saltwater creek below the Cotton Dock, Boone Hall truly feels like another world.

Flower Girl

For floral designer Anna Glac, flowers aren’t just a gift that should be given lightly. “Flowers are such a luxury, and everyone who buys or receives flowers should be overwhelmed with their beauty,” she says. “No matter how small or big the arrangement or bouquet is.”

Dress for Success

Being a bride can be stressful, and choosing a wedding dress is one of the most high-pressure parts of the wedding-planning process. But the close-knit team behind The Bridal House of Charleston is committed to making the experience as relaxing and pleasant as possible.

B. Unique

Weddings are always special occasions, but some are more memorable than others. A few years ago, when Christine Boykin and Carri MacGregor realized that only two of the 10 weddings they’d attended that season stood out, they decided to start their own event planning company.

An Affair to Remember

There was a time in the now-distant past where a lady could purchase a beautiful, well-tailored suit from a department store for a moderate sum. The suit would have been made from high-quality material, and though it was made en masse, one could expect it to last. The thread holding each patterned piece together would continue to do so for years, and the metal zipper on the suit’s pencil skirt wouldn’t catch after just a few wears.

One of a Kind

No matter what kind of bride walks in the door at Yoj Events, owner Candice Hilse is convinced that she’ll find her match around Yoj’s crew of event-planning experts. “Our team is really diverse,” says Hilse, who founded the company in 2008. “Everyone seems to present a different style. There’s something for every type of client here. Every bride will have a good fit style-wise.”

Ocean Views

It’s hard to get any closer to the surf than Seabrook Island Club’s Ocean Terrace, where couples can exchange vows while overlooking miles of open shoreline. And the best part? No sand in anyone’s shoes.

An Antebellum Getaway

If residing in a manor house of Tara-like proportions has always been a dream—even though being without Wi-Fi and access to cable can be a bit of a nightmare—Rosewood Manor in Marion, South Carolina, will feel like home. The 100-year-old house has been lovingly restored by new owners, Dr. Gary McKeel and J. Harold Cunningham, who took pains to ensure the empire style of the home remained intact.

Luxe of Love

Growing up in Pennsylvania, Francesca DiSalvo-Follmer’s father owned an event venue and catering company, but she never dreamed that she would follow in his event-planning footsteps. “Weddings up north and weddings down here are so incredibly different,” she says. “Everything there is in hotels and banquet rooms.” But when she and her husband moved to Charleston in 2008, a whole new world of weddings opened up to her, and she was inspired to launch Pure Luxe Bride.
