When I was first introduced to The Silver Starfish, I was in awe of it’s quaint and inviting atmosphere. This little King Street shop, created and owned by the lovely Kristen Guaglianone, is hidden down in an alley in a classic Charleston building. With their walls filled with pretty paper and creative gifts, this shop is a wedding planner’s dream. I feel so fortunate that I get to work in this gorgeous space every week and get to learn from such an amazing lady. But now, I will let Kristen share with you a bit about her experience and growing little company. Please welcome, Kristen of The Silver Starfish!

When I follow up with past brides and grooms and ask what they wish they would have done differently for their wedding day, 9 times out of 10, they say they wish they would have hired a videographer. The day happens so quickly, all of the planning and time spent in the creation of your wedding, flies by and having a video of what really happened is forever. Drew Pond of Dock House Digital does just that. He captures the emotions and energy of weddings and puts them into a ten minute video for you to enjoy for years to come. Find out how and why he got started in this industry in today’s Wedding Wednesday Spotlight!


The three words I would definitely use to describe this wedding as are “pretty in pink”. From the florals, to the linens, to the shade of the sunset setting on this dream day, this wedding was filled with lots of pink, little accents. Today, I am excited to share the professional shots from Lindsey Miller Photography of this wedding to remember.

Today’s Wedding Wednesday Spotlight has a special place for me in my wedding vendor round up. Christa Lanning, the events coordinator at the absolutely stunning Governor Thomas Bennett House, and I started a friendship while working at another wedding company here in town and continue to work together now. She was one of the first people I met when I moved here to Charleston, and she showed the ropes and gave me the run down of what it meant to be in the Holy City wedding industry. For that, I will be forever grateful! Now managing the events at the Thomas Bennett House, she has found a wonderful home and I am so excited to have THREE weddings with her next year within two months. Hello!! We are the party people!

Well, enough from me, let’s get to the good stuff. Soak in Christa’s wise words of wisdom and get ready for some wedding insight!
