Rainbow Connection

Rainbow Connection | What's more uplifting than a rainbow? How about a wedding awash in all the colors therein...

Casey Moore & Zach Tarrant
April 13, 2013, Middleton Place


While most brides go into wedding planning with a pair of favorite color choices, Casey Moore wanted as many hues as possible. Luckily, she and her fiancé Zach Tarrant were set to wed at Middleton Place plantation when the gardens were in the height of their blooming splendor. “Flowers were high on our list; I wanted lots of them everywhere,” Casey says. The creative couple—both SCAD grads—chose purple, green, blue, and pink, and, with the help of the crew from A Charleston Bride, picked two fabrics to pull everything together. “We searched high and low to find the perfect color-saturated samples,” says planner Melissa Barton. The material topped honey pot favors and inspired the wedding cake design, too. From the bridesmaids’ frocks to the ribbons streamers, Casey and Zach’s wedding was a celebration of color. “I wanted to feel like I was Mary from The Secret Garden—and I did!” says Casey.
