Vintage Winter Wedding, Or Pictures From A Fairy Tale?

When it comes to wedding inspiration, nothing is quite so magical as seeing what real couples do for their big day. Since 100 Layer Cake is our source for peeping the most beautiful ways brides and grooms say "I do," it'll feature weddings from Australia to Napa and everything in between. Brides beware: You're going to want to pin just about everything you see. And even if you're not engaged, you'll want to check it out just for the love story.
We know lots of you are planning winter weddings right now, and this South Carolina shindig is full of elegant inspiration for the colder months. Influenced by the bride’s time in France, Maggie and Pat’s wedding style was all about muted metallics, weathered finishes, and just a touch of sparkle to usher in the New Year. Our Labor of Love was there to capture the grand, 250-guest celebration.

The reception venue, Huguenot Loft at the Peace Center, combined a downtown location with the historic charm of a restored mill — exposed brick, heavy beams, and beautiful hard wood floors. Just so warm and inviting! Rentals: Settee Event Décor Rental & Professional Party Rentals.
