Classic Nautical Charleston Wedding

Classic Nautical Charleston Wedding

Cait and Dave are from upstate New York and together they planned a beautiful destination wedding at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina in South Carolina. With the vision of coordinator Aly Howard, of Palmetto Weddings and the talent of Frampton’s Floral, a classically elegant nautical theme was created. A stunningly simple wedding cake by Sugar Bakeshop with a dramatic dried coral leaf  for the cake topper embodied the elegant coastal aesthetic. Cait and her mother created the table decor which included natural oyster shells, mercury glass and votives. / Images by Gillian Ellis Photography.

    This is gorgeous! Love the wheel on the back of the chairs, and the use of gold mercury glass.
