Claire and Jake in Charleston, SC

Tiffany blue and southern charm make for a classic, elegant wedding

Claire and Jake fell in love with Charleston when they visited it one Valentine's Day, so the Arlington, VA couple knew it would be the perfect destination for their wedding. Planner Tara Guérard of Soirée helped the couple execute an event full of Charleston charm at The French Huguenot Church and The William Aiken House with Claire's own elegant, modern style, all in the fresh hue of Tiffany blue.

As a contrast to the blue details, all of the flowers were white. Claire originally wanted peonies for the wedding, but because they were not in season, Guérard suggested fragrant gardenias. They were combined with white tulips, roses and lilies of the valley. "I felt like a kid on Christmas, seeing all the details come alive," says the bride.
