Today, I wanted to say thank you for reading my little blog, The Petal Report. I am so glad that you are here! Because without you, none of this would be possible. For today’s post, I wanted to share some of the designs from my table settings I created for Hand Made Events when I worked on their PopUp Dinners. Incorporating a sign at every place setting saying “glad you’re here” made all of our guests feel welcomed and invited. (Want to learn about my experiences while in California and the many events I helped create?! Check out that post here!)

As always, y’all, thank you for reading The Petal Report! Enjoy these fun and creative shots from Sorella Muse Photography.

Today, for my first vendor feature on The Petal Report’s Wedding Wednesday Spotlight, I am SO excited to share one of my best friends and fellow wedding colleagues, Courtney Huggins. Let me preface this with how we first met. Courtney and I met through a mutual friend who introduced us through our wedding internship for the wonderful company of By Invitation Only…Event Planning & Design in Columbia, South Carolina. We became close through our love for the Gamecocks and weddings, have explored the amazing country of Italy together, and now just live a few miles apart in our favorite city.  She is easily one of my favorite people on this planet for many reasons and I am thrilled you get to learn more about her. She has one of the brightest personalities and makes me laugh harder than just about anyone I know. (No, seriously, I have been found with many a tears in my eyes after leaving her presence.) So, y’all, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the one, and certainly only, Courtney Huggins! Enjoy.


Happy Wedding Wednesday, my friends! I have an exciting addition I want to share with you all below. Check it out!

Being apart of the wedding industry here in Charleston, I have the opportunity to work with so many amazing vendors and people that I want you all to have the chance to learn a bit about them too. So, I am going to start a new segment that on every Wednesday I will “spotlight” a vendor in the industry and their experiences in weddings. Cool, right?! To start it off, I thought I would answer some of my own silly and fun questions.

I am really excited about this section and I hope you are too!


That’s me!

So if you follow me on Instagram (@thepetalreport if you are not already) you have seen that I have not been able to hold back on posting some of these pictures. This wedding has by far been one of my favorites ever. Not for the amazing vendors or the gorgeous florals or the pretty little details (although those certainly helped), but it was for the sweet, sweet couple who made it all worth it. Please enjoy and fall in love with these gorgeous pictures from my previous post by Haley Sheffield of Katie and Clay’s dream day!
