Let me give you a brief synopsis of our wedding so you know where my reviews are coming from. I was an out of town bride, planning a 50 person destination wedding in Charleston, SC. It was a SUNDAY MORNING, wedding followed by a BRUNCH reception.
Location: The Wickliffe House - A+++++
The event coordinator and event manager were fantastic. Event manager was Tonya Burns and she was fantastic. The Wickliffe House is a beautiful old southern mansion with beautiful wood floors and gorgeous moldings. We held our ceremony on their lawn. The House provides chairs, utensils, plates, wine glasses, etc for up to 100 people. I rented chairs for the outside lawn from Snyder Rental.
Florist: Whitney Randall, Branch Design - A++
The flowers were amazing. I had a "spring bouquet" which incorporated every color available and imaginable. She went so far as to include figs in the arrangements. Absolutely beautifl.
Photographer: Lacey Gadwill, - A ++++++
She does the "photojournalistic" approach, not your standard posed pictures. The proofs she has sent us thus far are incredible. Not only is she extremely talented but she is very easy to work with. She has a great eye and if you give her free reign to take the pictures she knows will come out incredible, you will be very pleased. We most definitely were. Check out her blog that includes some of our wedding photos. You'll get a peak at our flowers and the Wickliffe House here: http://laceyg.posterous.com/
Musicians: The Sneakers, East Coast Entertainment - A
Great band, very talented. Their saxaphone player is amazing. We had jazz and swing music for the reception and a piano for the wedding music. They provided all the music.
Rehearsal Dinner - Southend Grill & Smokehouse (sp?) - A
Great service, great food, wonderful service by the staff.
