Seeing a Pattern

Seeing a Pattern | Brianna Barker & Evan Gropper, February 18, 2012, Lowndes Grove Plantation

Though Brianna and Evan lived next door to one another in New York for more than a year, it was eHarmony that introduced the pair. The couple dated for two years before Evan popped the question during his and Brianna’s annual Christmas date to Central Park. With family and friends spread across the country, they chose Charleston’s Lowndes Grove for their wedding and enlisted Red Letter Events to concoct a warm and intimate setting that would make their guests feel as if they were attending a lively dinner party at the couple’s home. Thus the same color scheme—green, blue, and cream—as in the couple’s digs came together with cozy touches like chandeliers, candelabras, and custom pillows to create an atmosphere that, according to Evan, was, “exactly as we had dreamt.”
