So far my vendors are…


Ceremony/Reception Venue: Boone Hall Plantation

Event Producer/Floral Designer: Ooh! Events

Photographer: Richard Israel

Wedding Dress: Pnina Tornai


I’m still working on finding the perfect caterer and videographer but it’s slowly coming together. I think for the reception we’re going with a band and then DJ but still haven’t found them yet either.

My whole design concept is a whimsical vintage shabby chic wedding so I’m also hoping to find a cool designer where I can find a really retro 50-60’s style dress for my reception.

I’m considering Old Exchange Building as well for my reception!  How many guests are yall anticipating?  Also, we want at least a 4 or 5 piece motown band there, do you think the space is large enough for that & buffet stations?  We were considering outdoor ceremony locations, but because our date is 3.10.12, we’re worried about the weather & moved it indoors to a church.  We really like the Huguenot Church too!

@feh9b: Yep I’m doing stations. There will be 6 I believe? They are going to be set up between the columns in the hall. We are having a DJ and he will be in the back corner, dance floor in the middle. Its not a very large venue and I think spacing will depend on how many people you are having. We are planning on between 100-125.

We actually changed our minds & have since booked the Hibernian Hall.  It’s a little bigger to allow for a band with a stage already built in.  Since I’m a member of our church, luckily we’re saving some money there.  Still trying to decide on caterer…it’s so expensive!!
