2022 Wedding Season Wrapped

Wow, what a Wedding Season it has been - with 64 events in 2022 and over 6,500 guests served - you can say we had one amazing year.! We traveled all over from the Grand Strand to Portland, OR and as far south as Jamaica. What they say is true: Do what you love and you never work a day in your life! When we say love, we truly mean LOVE our job. Creating the special moments that will become favorite memories for each and every one of our couples is something we pride ourselves on. Ash Events would not be possible without every single one of our clients trusting us with their vision and dreams. We are truly thankful beyond measure.


What a better way to wrap up than with recapping our Top 10 Weddings of 2022! Every year, we take a poll of our staff and vote to choose our top 10 weddings of the season. Truly all of our weddings are SO SPECIAL and have a big spot in our hearts but these 10 were the Ash Events 2022 favorites. It was a VERY close call between many of our events , however after much debate we present to you our top 10 weddings of 2022!



10. Spencer & Tom - Caledonia June 4th, 2022


















If we ever have to describe southern beauty we will probably pull up wedding pictures from Spencer and Tom’s day at Caledonia for years to come. Think Grand- Millennial at its finest. Spencer & Tom’s wedding was nothing short of beautiful and Spencer’s reaction to seeing what we created together was just the icing on their Funfetti wedding cake.

The varying shades of dusty blues and bright whites tied together perfectly with natural textures like rattan and linen to create a curated and oh so chic look. RSG event Designs captured our classic vision perfectly in the brides Chinoiserie vases as well as with the lighting. Spencer wore a beautiful gown from Everthine Bridal while her wedding party wore mix and matched midi dresses from Reformation with a simple cognac leather sandal. We sure hope the trend of fun prints and midi dresses for Bridesmaids will come with us into 2023. Tom and his groomsmen wore navy blue suit jackets and khaki pants from Brooks Brothers.






Even with putting into effect a last minute rain plan option, our hearts were bursting with joy planning this wedding - it was stunning. With details like a personalized watercolor crest, blue Loeffler Randal Camellia Knotted Sandals, and a cigar bar featuring the bride's father’s favorite smokes, this wedding featured the soul of this couple through and through. The night ended with Tru Sol’s Proud Mary and after keeping all the guests on the dancefloor to celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cook all night, we sent them off surrounded by their closest friends and family with Kristy Roderick and Four Pedal Films there to capture every amazing second!

9. Tyler & Onesimo - Abernethy Center May 20th, 2022


















Tyler and Onesimo are one of the couples you just instantly love!! Their outdoor ceremony in The Abernethy Center’s Veiled Garden ceremony was perfect in every way! Tyler and Onesimo had a thirteen person Wedding Party to stand by them on their best day if you include their fur baby, Porter, who ran down the aisle as their ring bearer! With a friend marrying them and some guests traveling from across the country, this ceremony felt so intimate, special and full of love.


The Grooms wore Indochino Velvet Tux Jackets while their Wedding Party wore mix and matched black attire in varying textures and style. All white florals and greenery arrangements and floating candles from Grand Avenue Florist exemplified the romantic

nature of The Abernethy Center and created the perfect mood for Tyler and Onesimo to celebrate with their closest friends and family. The party started when Tyler and Onesimo danced on a cloud and Paradox Productions opened the dancefloor that stayed packed all night long! An added perk, Ashley & Kaitlyn got to travel to Portland and stayed with long time friend and one of our all time favorite photographers Corina Silva!

8. Jazzmyn & Cody - Village House at Litchfield September 17th, 2022


















We loved being able to celebrate with Jazzmyn and Cody at Village House in Litchfield for their September Wedding straight out of our Boho dreams. We were lucky enough to have Stan Weddings along with us to capture each and every special moment throughout the day! Willow Event Designs created the most beautiful arrangements for them to fit their fall aesthetic.


The earth tone color palette compiled with the bold and robust blooms created the perfect mixture of modern and boho that fit their personalities to a T. A special highlight of the night was definitely Jazzmyn’s dance with her dad, a compilation of several different songs all brought to us by Eyecon Entertainment and a surprise appearance made by a money gun. The bride's family owns Coccadotts in Myrtle Beach, and was actually able to make her wedding cake.





They created a three tier work of art with floral embellishments lining the exterior! A bride that can rock 3 outfit changes is definitely one we will never forget! She started her day off in the comfiest robes from Crimson and King while being pampered by Hair by Shelley and

Beauty by Dee! She then changed into her wedding dress that was hand picked for her with the help of Alex from The Dressing Room. Lastly, she put on her disco

dress and light up sneakers that truly was a show of personality and the energy level for the rest of the night.

7. Chelsea & Allison - The Venue at White Oaks Farm December 4th, 2022




















When we think back to Chelsea and Allie’s Wedding Day we cannot think of any word other than FUN. Chelsea and Allison tied the knot on a Sunday at The Venue at White Oaks Farm in front of all their friends and loved ones. The best part, Chelsea and Allison’s best friend Kylie Moyer officiated the Wedding and it was the SWEETEST!! I don’t think we have ever heard so many laughs from all parties involved during a ceremony! They even had a guest appearance from their favorite bartender at their typical hang, Reds Ice House, bring them shots just like any given Sunday.


Their wedding party varied between full length black dresses from Revelry and sleek suits with black pants and tan jackets from Asos. Anita’s Party Planning heard their wishes for a reception with a black and neutrals as their color palette paired with dried florals and pampas grass. To say she gave our Brides exactly what they wanted would be an understatement. Anita delivered the boho dream of Chelsea and Allison’s wedding with her tabletop and personalized decor!

Chelsea and Allison’s boho dream didn’t stop at decor. Froth and Bubbles’s Bubble Camper was a highlight serving the best signature cocktails and favorites of the Brides and their friends. When it was

time to open the dance floor, Eyecon Entertainment gave Chelsea and

Allison the reception they’ve always wanted. A regular Friday night for Chelsea and Allison includes living room karaoke and their wedding was no exception.

The only time Allison relinquished the microphone was to crowd surf and this

can only be described as epic!! Their personality translated through every

part of their Sunday Wedding and we loved being a part of their special day!

6. Christie & James - Pawleys Pelican Inn April 16th, 2022



















If you’re dreaming of a wedding by the Ocean, Christie & James Wedding at the Pawleys Pelican Inn will be the perfect inspo for you. The mixture of rattan with the dried and pastel florals hand crafted by Willow Event Designs were perfect for their beach wedding. We are usually the first to run from a beach wedding, but there was something about Christie & James vibe and vision we could get out of our heads! On the week of the wedding there was a 96% chance of the R word we don’t say in the wedding industry. When presented with options for our R word plans , Christie assured us not to worry that her Grandmother in heaven would take care of it and that she did.

We did have a few showers early in the day but everything cleared up with plenty of time for guests to arrive. Guests were first welcomed by Palmetto Strings who set the mood for the ceremony. The Willow team constructed an asymmetrical arbor that was an absolute eye catcher. The couple was married by our grooms father, Jim. Christie wore a stunning gown from Made with Love Bridal that fit her like a glove! Our groom, James, hand picked his outfit from Jos’a’Bank. For the wedding party , Christie dressed her girls in a stunning mix matched look from Show me your Mumu. Going into cocktail hour the guests were greeted with specialty cocktails from Lemon or Lime Mobile Bar Co.


We added wallpaper to the front of the bars for a little extra flare. During the design process we chose neutral tones for their linens , chairs and dance floor. Mc Light and Sound illuminated the Pelican Inn with a mixture of cafe lighting & Rattan Chandeliers. This couple really wanted to cater their wedding to guests, ensuring they truly enjoyed the entire evening. What better way to do that than ice cream on the dance floor?


The Mr. Softee ice cream truck was the highlight of the reception and got everyone sugared up just in time for DJ Jeff Crane from Craze Crane to keep them dancing the night away celebrating Mr. & Mrs. Barber. Our tiktok Live this night was a HIT with our followers and with all guests. Our bride Christie is the owner of She Sells Sea Shells , and created custom hand painted Sea Shells for each of their guest to take as favors. Jessi Nichols Photography captured the day perfectly!

5. Marisa & Colton - Wachesaw Plantation September 17th, 2022




















Some couples just speak our wedding love language and when Marisa and Colton told us their vision for a blue and white wedding on the bluff of Kimbels at Wachesaw, our eyes became hearts! For attire, Marisa wore a Lilian West gown from The Poinsette Bride. Colton and his groomsmen wore Navy suits from one of our favorite suit rental companies Generation Tux . Marisas wedding party wore long Dusty Blue dresses purchased from Azazie!


This wedding was dynamic with three different locations for ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception. Their ceremony on the bluff featured ground florals from Royal Decor that lined the last row of seats and framed the scene so beautifully. The Wedding Party, Groom, and the Bride processed down the aisle to live string music played by a Dean’s Duet Trio and perfectly set the tone for the evening! . Cocktail Hour and the Reception Dinner were held inside Kimbels and the atmosphere was lively. We had stations for dinner but had full seating for guests which included specialty linens, chairs, flatware and blue goblets and plates from Eventworks, as well as the Aurora Ocean Napkins from Stradley Davidson.


Marisa and Colton opted for a head table for their wedding party which we fully set with chargers, plates and additional glassware. Following dinner, our Bride and Groom cut their cake from Flowerchild and then we moved guests outside to the part under the beautifully lit sailcloth tent. We repurposed Royal Decor’s ground florals on the stage, elevating the facade and entire setup from Event Works. We positioned cocktail tables around the dance floor featuring Stradley Davidson Aurora Ocean linens for conversation and restful moments! There are truly so many special moments to recall from Marisa and Colton’s big day but none more epic than Marisa joining her bandmates on stage during Tru Sol’s band break, one of them her brother, to play three songs and get cheered on for an encore!

They are professionals, don’t worry, but this was a special treat for Marisa to share with the guests at her wedding and her husband couldn’t have looked more proud of his wife if he tried! We didn’t let guests leave without a trip to the Little White Box to take a photo with props! One copy was a souvenir and the other went into a special guestbook for Marisa and Colton to look back on forever. There is even one of our entire vendor team with the Father of the Bride! One Life Photo & Thomas Runion Media were there to capture the day perfectly.
