Real Wedding Feature: Lauren + Alex’s Chic Downtown Wedding

Featured Event | by EventWorks

When we receive photos of an EventWorks wedding, it feels like Christmas at the office. We spend months (sometimes even over a year) working on an event and we don’t always get to see the final results. We love seeing our clients’ visions and inventive ideas come to life in their photos. If you’re looking to plan a classic and elegant event, these pictures from Lauren and Alex’s big day are the ultimate inspiration. The couple celebrated their love with a chic wedding at the Gadsden House in Downtown Charleston. From ceremony to send-off, every detail was exquisite.

You don’t need glitzy accessories to make your ceremony look expensive - it’s all about picking the right colors and décor for your space. The couple chose the Wood Slatted Mahogany Chair for their seating to match the romantic theme and complement the neutral tones in the surrounding brick and landscaping.

For cocktail hour, the courtyard was sectioned off with a frame tent and accessorized with a Tent Liner and Leg Drapes. A standard frame tent works well for any wedding, but adding a tent liner and leg drapes brings a luxurious and polished look to the space. Underneath the tent, guests lounged in our Antoinette Settees and Antoinette Chairs. Tip: Make your rental pieces feel more personalized by adding custom pillows, featuring your color scheme or wedding logo. It’s a fun and easy way to make your décor unique and cozy.

If you are serving larger portions during cocktail hour, it’s always a good idea to provide additional table seating. The couple chose to include small 36” round tables and our Antique Infinity Chairs to give guests a place to set their plates and glasses.

They kept the theme going with light and fresh drink options. Champagne was passed around in our Pure Glass Flutes and Signature Citrus Cocktails were served in Old Fashioned Glasses. Tip: Get creative with your drink menu and offer a few signature beverages that say something personal about you. This will make cocktail hour memorable and help set the mood for the rest of the evening.

Long white tables lined the Charleston-style porches at the Gadsden House for the reception. Instead of using standard banquet tables, the couple chose to use 4’x8’ Tables to create a more stately setting. Tip: If you plan on adding large floral arrangements or several decorative elements to your tabletops, the 4’x8’ tables provide the extra room you need without taking away space for your guests to dine.

Lauren and Alex created this chic tablescape using our Glass Dinner Plate, Gold Flatware, Hemstitch Napkin and Pure Wine + Water Glasses. The clear glasses and organic color scheme kept the space feeling spacious and airy. The florals brought a nice texture to the table and the tapered candles added a little height and dimension. The neutral wood tones of our Antique Infinity Chairs rounded out the space, bringing a regal flair to the reception.

After dinner, the stage was set and ready for the couple to share their first dance underneath our Crystal Chandelier. Lauren and Alex picked a seven-piece band to kick off the dance hour. Tip: Hide the clutter of a live band’s equipment with our White Stage Façade. This piece was made to fit the front and sides of the stage, so you can tuck away unwanted visual distractions and dance the night away!

This wedding at the Gadsden House was classic, romantic and everything we love about the work we do. It’s events like these that remind us why we do what we do, and who we do it for. Congrats to the newlyweds, Lauren + Alex!
