I really enjoy intimate weddings so I was excited to hear that Aly & Ryan planned to have only about 30 guests to their Senate’s End garden wedding ceremony. Vicki Walker, of Carolina Blossoms not only did the lovely floral decorations like these lily centerpieces, the decorated wooden cross for the ceremony, the flowergirl crowns and several orchids for the bride’s hair, but she also coordinated throughout the day. Thanks so much for Vicki for keeping everything running smoothly! Here’s some of her floral handiwork.
Aly’s nieces played a big part in the wedding day. They’re such sweet and absolutely adorable little girls!
Helping the bride write her letter to the groom.
Aly’s lacy wedding dress was so gorgeous!
Every time Aly’s sister said “say cheese” to her daughter, she’d put her hand under her chin like this. She’s ready for photos!
The garden at Senate’s End is a beautiful setting for the wedding ceremony.
This is one of my favorite images because you can tell how at ease these two are with each other. A perfect match!
Dupre Catering pulled out all the stops for a great dinner as the guest list grow to closer to 250 for the wedding reception at The Hall at Senate’s End.
The Chinese lanterns at The Hall are one of my favorite first dance backgrounds.
We couldn’t help but grab a few photos of the Columbia skyline which is just outside the Hall’s front doors!
The Root Doctors blew me away with their live music and they kept the guests dancing all night long. They have such a great stage presence.
But the band wasn’t the only talent in this room. The bride’s sister and father both hopped on stage to do a mind-blowing duet for the bride and groom.
Aly & Ryan left the reception through a shower of rose petals into a Rolls Royce provided by VIP Limo service! Congratulations Aly & Ryan!
