Wising to incorporate southern charm with the bride’s British heritage into their wedding, Ray and Olivia designed their special day complete with rustic décor and sophisticated elegance. Litchfield Plantation in South Carolina worked perfectly as a canvas for their wedding design by Gigi Noelle Events. Light-pink florals and green table runners dressed the reception tables as friends and family gathered to celebrate with the couple. Chelsie Burkhart Photography didn’t miss a moment in capturing this couple’s bohemian southern wedding.
Ray and Olivia
Litchfield Plantation, Pawleys Island, South Carolina
We got married in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina on an old rice plantation in Litchfield. We wanted to keep the southern charm but also incorporate some British traditions since my family (the bride’s family) is from Wales. The decor and theme had some vintage and bohemian touches as well.
Our favorite moment was right after the ceremony when we were standing on the balcony of the plantation looking down at all the guests who attended the wedding. Everyone was gathering on the steps of the house for a group photo and it really hit us how loved we were that all those people travelled such a long way to share in our special day.
The Couple Recommends:
Ann Mayfield from Buttercream Cakes and Catering was very professional and did a magnificent job on our wedding cake including the traditional British fruit cake that she made specially for us. Jason Wheeler did a fantastic job on our wedding video and was very polite and personable. DJ Scott was also very professional, fun and kept everyone on the dance floor all evening. Creative Catering made an amazing southern boil for our rehearsal dinner and a delicious reception dinner. Chelsie Burkhart did an amazing job with our photos. She went above and beyond by not only traveling from Ohio, but also attending the rehearsal dinner to prepare for the wedding day. Helen Greenfield and Steve Green did an excellent job keeping the guest entertained before, during and after the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. Reverend Andrew Woods traveled from Ohio to be our officiant which meant a great deal to us because he has been a family friend for years. Hotz catering and rentals provided all the tables, chairs and most importantly the gorgeous tent with chandeliers that had to be ordered last minute because of rain. Gigi Noelle Events created a beautiful setting with gorgeous flowers and decor to make the evening unforgettable. Litchfield Plantation was an amazing setting from the beautiful driveway with the Oak trees to the charming plantation house with all it’s history.
