Cana headed to Johns Island for a picturesque barn wedding and we’re so excited to share some highlights from this lovely fall wedding! This Barn at Walnut Hill wedding is a gorgeous slice of Lowcountry heaven located less than an hour from those bustling Charleston streets. The natural beauty of this location is unquestionable and we love the deep, rustic atmosphere it creates. Nikki and Carl desired an elegant, Southern wedding and certainly found what they were looking for with this venue. Nikki’s detailed lace-overlay gown was stunning in the natural surroundings. A petite flower crown and white peek-toe heels completed her bridal ensemble, an elegant boho-chic style perfect for an outdoor soiree. What about Carl’s striking look of a brilliant blue suit with purple tie complete with a yellow-inspired boutonniere of ranunculus and billy bobs to match Nikki’s bouquet of vibrant pinks and oranges.
Wildflower inspired floral bouquets lined the aisle chairs and a wooden keg bearing a sign for guests to sit wherever they’d like paired well with the brick ruins overgrown with ivy. Nikki and Carl exchanged vows with this majestic outdoor scene as the backdrop. After the couple spent a few moments with family, Cana captured some gorgeous newlywed portraits featuring some of Walnut Hill’s stunning vistas. We especially love the sweet kiss in front of the sprawling oak and the stroll down the country lane. Then it was off to the barn for a festive reception experience!
Walnut Hill’s barn was transformed for the reception with family style tables featuring gorgeous tablescapes that featured the eclectic wildflower theme. The chandeliers were accented with strands of lavender leaves and completed the rustic, organic theme. The main dishes were pulled pork and smoked chicken and guests dined on these delicacies before moving on to sweet treats such as Peace Tea Macaroons and a delicious cake from Swank Desserts! The wedding dance was simply beautiful, taking place underneath the barn’s exposed beams with a soft yellow glow all around them. Those moments between Nikki and Carl were oh so sweet.
We would like to thank you both again for choosing us to be a part of this truly special day and we hope that you two share many years of health and happiness. Congratulations!
