They say it takes a village, and that certainly holds true when planning a wedding. This month, we’re highlighting several local companies that successfully personalize, and help execute, those important details of your big day. One vendor that is sure to brighten up your event is AlphaLit! Erica + Carlos tied the knot last July (above, Richard Bell Photography) and collaborated with AlphaLit to spell out LOVE in marquee letters down by the Lowndes Grove waterfront. This statement marquee illuminated the night and complimented the stunning sunset over the Ashley River.
Photo booths are a great way to add an interactive element to your event. The Photo Booth People provide a luxury experience with digital, black + white, as well as color photo print options. The modern, open-air, luxury photo booths can instantly connect photos to your guests via email or text, print keepsakes, and by shared online galleries following an event. If you’re looking for more of a 360 degree photo experience, we recommend looking into Slate 360 – CHS. This red carpet option is Charleston’s newest style of photo booth, perfect for wedding receptions and after parties!
Are you or your guests in need of a babysitter while in Charleston? Simply Southern Sitters is a local babysitting agency providing occasional sitters for local families, vacation families, special events, and weddings. All sitters are over 21 with at least 3 years of experience. Additionally, all sitters have CPR training with reliable transportation, and the company extensively screens and conducts personal face-to-face interviews with all candidates.
Many of our PPHG couples choose to include their furry friends on their big day. It’s important to have a plan in place after the ceremony so you can enjoy that special time together as newlyweds, without having to worry about Fido. Charleston Dog Walker will bring your dog to the wedding venue for photos and the ceremony. Afterward, they bring them back home again, where your pups can relax while you celebrate! Other great pet sitting options in the Charleston area include Pet Squad Charleston and Dog Tired.
Planning a grand arrival or exit? Couples getting married at Lowndes Grove or the River House can take advantage of the prime location along the Ashley River. Dock access provides gorgeous marsh views and the ability to commute by water. Companies such as High Tide Harbour Tours host small wedding party events, bachelorettes, and dramatic exits from wedding receptions. High Tide Harbour Tours offer a luxurious fleet of boats featuring coolers + ice, as well as Bluetooth audio speakers.
One thing is certain: your wedding day is one you will cherish for the rest of your life. Paint By Chloe, Event Painting by Haigan, and Wed On Canvas are a few local artists commemorating this special occasion by live-painting during your event. Not only is this something your guests will enjoy viewing throughout the night, but it will be a treasure you will keep for a lifetime. You might even use it to create custom thank you cards following the event!
