Following a honey and lavender palette, this minimony overlooking the Ashley River followed a French country chic mood with wild garden blooms, embroidered lace fashion and a quintessentially Provencal menu. Custom heraldry, hand-thrown ceramics and a floral adorned croquembouche were other notable design moments for this couple seeking a laidback celebration with their closest kin, and we couldn't adore their style more! We hope their day showcases the many ways a smaller guest count can elevate opportunities for celebration, both aesthetically and experientially.
