This charming real wedding brought to us by Katie Hart of Palmetto Duo (Lexington, SC) is classically lovely and brimming with thoughtful handmade details! Here’s Katie to tell us more:

Chris and Lauren’s is a love story that’s been in the making for 10 years- starting out all the way back in middle school! These two had a long distance relationship for a year after high school until Lauren joined Chris at Louisiana Tech University. Fast forward to Chris & Lauren’s 9:00am wedding at our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Chapin, SC.

See more after the cut!

The bride started hair and makeup at 4:30am for this morning ceremony. Lauren, her mom and Grandma made all the flower decorations themselves- talk about a talented family! The pastel flower girl bouquets were adorable and perfectly matched the rose colored accents on their dresses. The skirts of the flower girl dresses even had little flower petals in the tulle at the bottom.

The morning reception was held at the lovely River Road and Jasmine House. The rustic elegance of the venue perfectly matched Lauren’s vision for the wedding decor. I couldn’t help but to grab them for a few extra portraits around the house before the party got started!

The bride made this amazing brooch bouquet herself. She added a few little memory charms so that their relatives that have passed away can still be with them on the wedding day. The cake, done by the River Road and Jasmine House, was beautiful and delicious! The grits are the perfect Southern wedding favor and the customized bags were an adorable personalized touch!

Congratulations Chris & Lauren and thank you, Katie, for sharing! For more information about Palmetto Duo, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
