I am so in love with stunning wedding! Taking place in an industrial style building in South Carolina this amazing wedding combines rustic wedding decorations with an urban wedding industrial look. Hosting their wedding at 701 Whaley, a South Carolina wedding venue offered this couple the perfect loft style wedding space. From the photographer: The themes of family tradition and culture were also carried out in the reception décor. Karla is a passionate kayaker; one of the main decorative pieces was an antique wooden canoe that Karla’s father had since he was a young boy. It was hung sideways over the glass display with a large spray of florals spilling out. The glass display consisted of found, vintage glasses which were presented to the guests as a favor. They were used to toast the couple at the end of the evening. Thanks so much to Ashley Brokop Photography for sharing this wedding with us today.
Side tables made from suitcases decorated with globes continued the international theme as well as maps on the serving tables which pinpointed all the countries where the couple had travelled. Karla’s parents’ engagement pictures were displayed at the reception as well as pictures from Karla and Sergio’s youth.
As a nod to Sergio’s South American roots, guests also enjoyed favors of coffee, tea, and chocolate grown in the Andes. Rather than serving one large wedding cake, the couple offered six different cakes on a hanging display made from old window panes. The couple’s cake was baked by the bride’s mother using a recipe handed down from Karla’s Dutch great-grandmother. According to Sergio’s family tradition, the cakes were cut and served to the couple by both of the mothers.
