Around Time: Society Hall

SOUTH CAROLINA SOCIETY HALL was designed by Gabriel Manigault and built between 1799 and 1804. The portico, designed by Frederick Wesner, was added in 1825.It’s regarded as one of the most historic and beautiful buildings in the nation.

The building has two distinct floors. Typically, the reception is held upstairs in the ballroom. While cocktail hour or wedding ceremonies are held on the 1st floor. We had the privilege of working with Rachel & David on their spring wedding last year. We just love all the personalize unique touches throughout the entire event.


Neutral ivory sheer fabric was draped to create an altar area. We added an oversized hand woven sala garland to add an element of texture. We lined the aisle with assorted sized hurricane shades to create a warm glow throughout the nuptials.

While the ceremony took place downstairs, the reception was being set! Sequins and champagne linens, rich mahogany chivari chairs and beautiful floral created the picture-perfect reception space. We just love sequin linens! Petite clusters of ranunculus and bay laurel were placed on the cocktail tables, keeping within the neutral palette. Cocktail hour ~ had an unexpected guest! Strolling champagne diva! How fun is she?

The couple danced the night away to great beats and enjoyed amazing food! The guests created a sendoff for the bride and groom under a bubble filled line of good wishes!
