Sara Lofton and Gregg Pavone, owners of Charleston-based Limelight Custom Sign Co., channel their talents into their Big Day at Boone Hall's Cotton Dock

Boone Hall Plantation's Cotton Dock

As owners of Charleston-based Limelight Custom Sign Co., it made sense for Sara Lofton and Gregg Pavone to channel their talents into their Big Day. While they created the invitations, favors, and signage, their most ambitious project was a collection of 20 twine lanterns for the reception area. “It was a ton of work and pretty messy, but they had exactly the impact I wanted,” Sara says. And while she and Gregg took a lot on themselves, they also relied on Ooh! Events for assistance. No stranger to enthusiastic DIYers, Ooh!’s Lisa Thomas says she often helps couples pare down overly ambitious project lists. “The day goes by so fast and thinking that you and your family can do too much creates undue stress,” Lisa says. “Planners steer you away from ‘penny wise and pound foolish’ situations and help you achieve your dream day.” In the end, says Sara, “People loved our wedding because it was so ‘us.’”
