Lillian & Gregory {Hibernian Hall}

Lillian & Gregory {Hibernian Hall}

By | May 08, 2015

When Charleston native, Lillian, said ‘I do’ to her beau, Gregory, it was in true Holy City fashion––classic and elegant with a pinch of Southern flare. With a beautiful palette inspired by her bridesmaids’ gorgeous Lela Rose gowns, the ladies of Gathering Floral + Events artfully created a wedding that was seamlessly designed from the moment the church doors opened to the petal-throw exit. After the ceremony at St. Philips Church, the newlyweds and their guests headed to Hibernian Hall for a reception featuring delicious eats by Cru Catering, tunes from Sol Fusion, and more prettiness and design inspiration than my little wedding-loving heart can handle. Inspired by the iron gates of the bride’s childhood Charleston home, Jim Smeal crafted an outstanding (honestly!) six-tiered cake that took residence in the venue’s iconic rotunda. Inside the main ballroom, tables were graced with flowing arrangements of greenery, hydrangea, peonies, and orchids, and in the center of the hall, a large-scale double-sided lounge offered guests a place to relax, chat, and watch all of the dancing. At the end of the evening, extra slices of cake were popped into individual boxes and passed to guests before Lillian and Gregory ran hand-in-hand to a vintage car and cruised away into the summer night. Lovely all around!
