Warm weather, sunshine, bright colors, and gelato….it must be summertime! So excited to share this fun summer garden wedding inspired wedding at Middleton Place in Charleston, SC.  This amazing shoot was executed by Nicki Paige Collections and Carolina Occasions – two of our favorite ladies in planning locally (+ they travel!).  They wanted this shoot to feel all parts summer, and equal parts stunning, which is so easy to do against the backdrop at Middleton Place.

I know, I know I say it often, but Middleton Place is seriously my favorite venue in Charleston. Every time I’m there, it just feels like home.  The grounds are immaculate, every single employee you come in contact with is so kind (my favorite are the parking and entrance attendants, because they always make sure I never get lost LOL).  Their wedding team is so focused on making sure you have the most amazing day ever, and you’re getting married at one of the most historic sites in Charleston.  ALSO (can you tell I’m obsessed), one minute you feel like you’re in the epitome of Charleston charm, and then right around the corner, boom you’re in a European garden.  It’s too much, and you just HAVE to go see it!

ANYWAYS – this shoot had a fab vendor team that you’ll have to take a peek at below (cannot recommend them enough, I mean just look at all the beauty!), and if you’re thinking about getting married at Middleton Place, again, we could not think more highly of them and their wedding/events team staff!

PS – We have big news to share! We are now preferred vendors for Middleton Place – EEK! I definitely cried, and pinched myself.  Somewhere that we care so deeply for thought highly enough of us to want us there often (tbh, it’s probably because I’m just that hilarious), seriously a career goal. Definitely let us know if you’re getting married out there, and enjoy this inspo!



Adorn Charleston brings the heat every.single.time.  I love her rental pieces, especially for lounge furniture.  I 100% advise for a lounge setup, because it’s such another cool way for your guests to interact and also adds a unique touch for your photos and guests selfies! 

The invitation suite was designed by Two Paper Planes, and she’s great! Such a fun vibe to her work, which ya’ll know I’m all about! PS – custom stationery is my FAVE detail to shoot, so definitely hit this gal up! 

This cake…. I am OBSESSED with Cakes by Kait, who is truly the sweetest soul, and she really makes the BEST cakes.

Can we just talk about dining fresco for a second!? Seriously, it’s the best, and even better when you have this amazing backdrop.  This is one of my favorite views at Middleton Place. 

Simpleman Lettering – OMG! I can’t believe he was able to create this unique piece for a seating chart! SO SO COOL! 

There was even a gelato truck, and now it’s completely a thing.  If you don’t have a gelato truck at your wedding, I might be judging (only partially kidding 😉 ).  Seriously, the flavors were DELISH. 


If you love this wedding vibe, make sure to give these vendors a shout! They will hook it up!
