A Rehearsal Dinner Nod to the Groom

A Lowcountry Wedding Feature

We love a good theme, and Willie and Rebecca’s Mexico style rehearsal dinner certainly awakened our design senses.  It only seemed fair to incorporate Willie’s New Mexico roots with the pending Charleston style wedding for the southern bride the following day.  And we welcomed the opportunity.

Here in the lowcountry, our destination brides are here for a true southern flavor, which we also love to create, and create it quite often.  However, introducing a different style and feel for one aspect of the weekend, keeps your guests guessing and gives them an unexpected experience.  From the food to the decor and all the entertainment (of course a piñata was the main attraction), the evening was festive, to say the least and a nice refreshing break for the Loluma team.

Designing for Professionals

When being asked to design an event for our fellow industry professionals, thinking outside of the box and focusing on the details is a must.  When your guests are Charleston’s finest event planners and designers, you know nothing will go unnoticed.  When asked to design a luncheon to kick off the Spring Wedding Season at Runnymede Plantation, we focused on fresh, organic elements sure to inspire the creative minded guests.  Full, lush ombre fabric installed in the existing tent, finished with an ornate ceiling medallion to highlight the black beaded chandelier set the scene.  Gorgeous round and rectangular wooden tables and green midcentury style couches provided by Snyder Lounge grounded the setting perfectly.  Guests dined on the perfect spring luncheon menu provided family style by Salthouse Catering, and enjoyed gorgeous table settings full of unique details to pull it all together.  Loluma’s floral guru, Leesa Phipps, did not disappoint, providing centerpieces in rustic gold pedestal boats of wild, spring flowers and foliage in organic, neutral tones, and pops of blue to tie in Snyder’s pale blue napkins and butterfly china.  J. Lily’s stylish calligraphied menus on clear acrylic added to the light, fresh feel of the table top design.

Sneak Peak {Jenna & Joseph}

We have been waiting with bated breath for Jenna & Joseph’s spine-tingling wedding images, and, I must say, Hunter McRae did not disappoint.  Check out a few teasers of this stunner and stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.  We knew our darling Jenna would be gorgeous, but, WOW!  Congrats again to this incredibly special pair.

Offbeat Settings

For your next event, consider stepping out of the box.  Corporate Groups annually rewarding their employees with incentive trips and unique celebrations, definitely need to get creative each year to keep things fresh and exciting.  This particular group is one we work with annually, and they are consistently exciting us with a new city and a new venue each year.  This year, we travelled up the street to Myrtle Beach and created the perfect edgy setting for this event full of food, drink and incredible entertainers at the local Hard Rock Cafe.  You can see from the photos that in an ornate space such as this, it was all about the lighting.  Thank you to Absolutely Charleston for inviting us to be a part of this group’s creative experience yet again!
