Landmark Gardens and Timeless Romance at Middleton Place

Kourtney and Ryan’s October wedding at Middleton Place was cloaked in rich Charleston history and magnificent verdant landscapes. The breathtaking National Historic Landmark delivered a striking backdrop with its lush centuries-old formal landscaped gardens and Lowcountry prestige.
 
Expert planners from Buttercup Events carried blissful modern tones and a chic blue and grey palette throughout the autumn celebration. Guests savored intimate personalized touches in wedding photos of generations past and a playful Jenga piece guestbook.
 
Charleston wedding photographers Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay captured private keepsake moments to be forever cherished, including the bride and groom’s first look wrapped in cobbled streetscapes, meaningful Charleston locations and tucked-away palm leaf-framed kisses. The couple wiped tears as they stole away to share private vows next to the manor’s iconic Butterfly Lakes and a sweet romantic stroll through the grounds followed by a slow dance in an endless tunnel of trees.
 
A picturesque ceremony took place under towering oaks and draping Spanish moss with Ashley River views just beyond. The couple rode off in a horse-drawn carriage before joining guests for a waterside cocktail hour and a photo shoot with their adorable dog in his tiny bow tie along with a family shoot with the property’s friendly sheep flock.
 
Floral designers from Fresh Weddings & Events transformed the Pavilion reception space into a stylish modern gala using gorgeous tender white blooms in vintage brass vases and tall table greenery set against gold, deep blue, wood and dainty table lamps. Charleston wedding décor by Event Works produced natural blue velvet and antique ivory al fresco lounge seating under grand oak trees, strung bistro lighting and radiant candlelight while onsite Middleton Place Catering wowed with Lowcountry gourmet butlered appetizers and a multi-course feast.
