Kate + Heath: Black Tie Wedding at the Cedar Room, Charleston

 Kate + Heath: Black Tie Wedding at the Cedar Room, Charleston | Palmetto State Weddings

Sweet Southern charm!

Kate and Heath turned up the hospitality and tradition as they welcomed their friends and family to downtown Charleston for a gorgeous wedding bash. With the historic district playing backdrop to every lovely moment, the couple managed to capture the beauty of the Lowcountry throughout their day. 

Remembers photographer Maria Grace, "From a first look near the Charleston Battery right by the water to a gorgeous navy and gold reception at The Cedar Room in the heart of downtown, every detail screamed elegant Southern charm!"

The two shared a picture perfect first look at the Charleston Battery, then invited their guests to a ceremony at East Cooper Baptist Church and a reception at the Cedar Room downtown.

Two Dresses, One Big Day

Many mothers dream of passing their wedding gowns down to their daughters. With that in mind, Kate had a very special surprise in mind for her mom!

Says photographer Maria Grace, "[Kate] always dreamed of wearing her mother's wedding gown, but a 27-year-old all-lace dress was simply too fragile for anything but the ceremony. Because of this, Kate chose a gorgeous fluffy tulle dress for her first look and reception but changed into her mother's dress right before the ceremony as a sweet surprise to Heath and a nod to her family tradition. She looked equally beautiful in each, and we even snuck up to the roof at The Cedar Room for a few sunset portraits in her heirloom gown."

Wine colored anemones and lush cascading greenery made me fall in love with Kate’s bouquet, and classy tuxes paired perfectly with the towering trees in the background of all their pictures.
