Fall Design Inspiration

Even though it doesn't truly start to feel like Fall in Charleston until November, we are SO excited for {semi} cooler weather, evolving colors, and wardrobe changes that accompany the beginning of fall.  Maybe it is the long months of hot, humid weather that makes me feel this way.  Regardless, we love Fall at ACE, and we love the bold...

Let Them Eat Cake!

There are so many details that go into a wedding, but the sweetest {pun intended} is the cake.  The varieties of flavors and cake design are endless, but we've managed to round up a couple of our all time favorites! Summertime Seersucker This summertime wedding cake was perfectly adorned with seersucker sashes around each tier and cascading hydrangeas, garden roses, and spray...

The Bryants-Real Wedding

We are just so excited to share this sweet, summertime wedding with y'all!  Originally published on The Wedding Row, this wedding was one of our all time favorites.  It could have been the cool color palette or maybe the perfect setting at Lowndes Grove, but it was probably the fact that Heather and Nick were so  much fun to work...

The Perfect Thank You Note

One of the best things about being engaged and getting married is the fact that everyone wants to shower you with gifts!  Whether they are wedding gifts, generous cash gifts, or just sweet, sentimental cards, each gift, no matter how big or small, deserves a thank you note.
