After meeting through mutual friends, Lauren, 30, a retail manager and Brian, 39 a senior market manager, decide to plan a destination wedding in Mount Pleasant, SC. Drawing inspiration from their late December wedding date, the couple planned a holiday-themed celebration with a deep red and plum color palette. Seasonal flowers and berries warmed the rustic reception while monogram details and family photos created an intimate feel.

Lauren and Brian carried their burgundy, plum and gold color palette from their warm invitations to the wintery bridal party attire and reception linens.
A crystal broach, which complemented her embellished waist, completed Lauren's sophisticated updo.
An ivory silk belt, accented with a crystal broach, cinched Lauren's waist and complemented her understated lace gown.
"While we were dress shopping, I literally just stood in the dressing room and let my bridesmaids bring me things to try on," says Lauren. "I wanted something comfortable and I knew right away my gown was the one for me."
After settling on a late December wedding date, Lauren decided on a warm bridal bouquet of deep plum orchids, anemones and colorful berries.
Lauren's vibrant orchid and anemone bouquet was fastened with rustic tie and a meaningful charm.
Brian's burlap-wrapped berry boutonniere lent a rustic vibe to Brian's wedding style while his classic black tuxedo and gold tie maintained a formal feel.
"I decided to go with black for my bridal party because I wasn't exactly sure about my colors when we were dress shopping, so I figured we could always accessorize with whatever colors I did finally land on," says Lauren.
Lauren and Brian exchanged vows during a chilly outdoor ceremony with a romantic backdrop of hanging lanterns.
Small mason jars suspended from twine and filled with flowers and candles, created an romantic installation.
Staggered mason jars filled with red rose stems and glowing tea candles lent a rustic air to the outdoor cocktail hour.
"We fell in love with the club's wrap around porch with beautiful viewsthe rocking chairs and fireplaces fit perfectly with our holiday' theme!" says Lauren.
"Because it was going to be chilly and the ceremony was outside, we offered pashmina scarves in our wedding colors to all our female guests as they arrived," says Lauren.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the Inn's wrap around porch amongst fire places and cozy rocking chairs with personalized pillows.
Playing off of the deep burgundy and plum color palette, wintery centerpieces of berries, orchids and anemones, warmed the indoor reception space.
