From the stylist, Francesca of Pure Luxe Bride: On a gorgeous spring day, Lorena + Thomas tied the knot at Middleton Place. Looking fabulous in her Galia Lahav gown, Lorena walked down the aisle in a picturesque ceremony in the octagonal garden, followed by a lovely cocktail hour with music provided by a Spanish guitarist. The Pavilion was covered in blush and white florals provided by Branch Design Studio, with a touch of greenery and gold accents. The head table had an amazing hanging floral installation, with a custom lace overlay, gold chargers and blush napkins. Under the tent, guests partied away to Darby entertainment with a beautiful floral chandelier, lounge groupings, and a black and white dance floor. After a fun evening, the couple departed through a sparkler tunnel as the new Mr. + Mrs. Costa!
