Hair & Makeup: Celeste had a friend do her hair and makeup.
Barrettes & Boutonnieres: Using vintage fabric and feathers, Celeste made a hairpiece for herself and boutonnieres for the groomsmen.
Décor: The couple hired Luke Wilson Special Events to oversee the day-of event coordination, florals, and rentals, but otherwise opted to minimally decorate the already ornate home.
Linens: Celeste sewed table runners that matched the bridesmaids dresses.
The Groom’s Cake: Joshua’s grandmother baked the groom’s cake.
Welcome Bags: In lieu of favors, guests (most of whom were from out of town) received bags with homemade spiced nuts and preserves, San Pellegrino, and Charleston “trolley” route maps.
