“The sun was perfect, shining through the oak trees while I waited for her.”
Excerpt from Martha Stewart: ‘It’s not often that a wedding beautifully masters multiple themes, but when one does, it’s especially captivating. That was the case for Madeline and Brad’s fall celebration. The black-tie event was undeniably formal but didn’t shy away from rustic touches, including country motifs. “We would have to describe our wedding as a sophisticated southern affair with the understated elegance of autumn,” the bride shares. We would have to agree.
“We wanted to show our friends and family how much they mean to us by having the very best food, drinks, and entertainment along with an atmosphere that was elegant and dreamy at the same time,” Madeline explains. Shortly after getting engaged, the couple asked Meagan Warren to help them achieve their vision. Together, they planned a timeless event that centered around nature and tradition. The former inspired their rich color palette; the latter inspired their many meaningful touches. The romantic celebration was held at Wavering Place plantation in Eastover, South Carolina, located just 30 minutes from their Columbia home. Despite hosting 125 guests, the event felt surprisingly intimate.
“My most memorable moment was our first look. I can’t remember when I’ve been that nervous and excited to see Madeline,” Brad shared. “The sun was perfect, shining through the oak trees while I waited for her. When she was walking up behind me, before I turned around, her dress sounded like a ship’s sail coming in. When I turned around, I saw Madeline looking as beautiful as I had ever seen her. It was really a great memory!” His bride agrees. “It was such a special and personal moment for us to share with each other! I will never forget the way Brad looked at me the first time he saw me.”‘

Francesca and Timothy’s wedding in The Hamptons of New York was truly a joy to be a part of. They wed by the beautiful Peconic River in historic Suffolk County, the northeastern point of Long Island. It was such a warm July day with a refreshing breeze coming off of the water.
