Johnsie and Nick: Lapis and Mason Jars at Clemson University's Carillon Gardens and Amphitheater
Johnsie and Nick chose Memorial Day weekend to get married. Both bride and groom are graduates of Clemson, so it was only appropriate that they exchange vows on campus. The Carillon Gardens were the backdrop for their ceremony while the Clemson Amphitheater was the scene for the reception.
Johnsie and her mother, Karen, incorporated so many personal touches that were important to their family. The flower girl wore one of Johnsie's smocked dresses, they created signs using chalkboard paint and chalk, each table had a little bit of Johnsie and Nick's story, and a large glass barrel held the floral arrangement next to Johnsie's portrait by Gruen Photography. Renee Burroughs Design created centerpieces of wild flowers and anything she could get her hands on that was purple in Mason jars. Johnsie added the promise ring Nick gave her in high school to her bouquet.
Holly's Cakes created Johnsie and Nick's four tier cake with white butter cream and lapis and silver ribbon accents and their monogram in the middle. After dinner and cake cutting, Formal Affair DJ got everyone on the dance floor. Even the groomsmen were joining in on the fun with a soulful rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody". As guests gathered their custom pint glass (what a great favor!), they were handed tiger-rags and bubbles for Johnsie and Nick's send off.
Congratulations Johnsie and Nick!
