Straight-Laced | Sweet details rule a summertime wedding

Chloe Mitchell and Preston Garrison met in Spain while the two were studying abroad; three months after their introduction, he popped the question, and the pair began to plan a wedding in Charleston, where the bride-to-be had lived for years. They approached Cindy Zingerella of Engaging Events with a seldom-seen request in these parts: fuse Southern and Spanish details together, por favor. When Chloe chose an elegant Spanish lace meets Southern modesty type of gown, the event’s design details came together seamlessly. Here are a few favorite photos that showcase how Cindy smartly married lace with place, incorporating magnolia blossoms that harkened to the trees that towered the couple’s August 7, 2010 ceremony at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
