D’Anne and Patrick could not have gotten married on a more perfect day at Middleton Place. For those who have never been there, it is a National Historic Landmark and home to America’s oldest landscaped gardens. This was a destination wedding and many of the guests came from California. I can only imagine how enchanted they were by the Spanish moss let alone the gardens. In fact D’Anne had to remind me how spectacular even the urns were, wanting to make sure they appeared in some of the photos.
The girls got ready at the Middleton Place Inn, one of my favorite places to stay. It’s quite modern and contrasts nicely with the historic gardens. The ceremony was held in the octagonal gardens under the most amazing live oak. It was quite a sight to behold.
As an event planner herself, D’Anne had lots of ideas of how to make her wedding picture perfect. All the little touches- the chalk board seating chart, ribbons to wave after the ceremony, and a cute “here comes the bride” sign for the ring bearers to hold made it all the more photogenic.
Enjoy these photos from their ceremony and tomorrow’s will highlight their reception.
Getting ready at the Middleton Place
D’Anne wore a necklace that was made from her grandmother’s diamonds. It was a very special way to honor the memory of her grandmother, who was always a fan of Patrick and told D’Anne to not let him get away!
She carried a bouquet of white peonies, made by Stems.
Gorgeous Spring colors!

This photo makes me laugh. It should be in an Apple commercial.
One of D’Anne’s beautiful bridesmaids!
Moments before walking down the aisle.
These guys almost stole the show with their cuteness!
