“Survivor: China” Couple Wedding

Winners of the Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau Charleston Wedding Giveaway, and former Survivor: China castmates, Jaime Dugan and Erik Huffman, married Saturday, April 4th, at the Wild Dunes Resort. The Charleston rehearsal dinner 429 was held Friday evening at the Middleton Place Plantation , and Duvall Catering & Event Design had the pleasure of providing the décor and catering for the event.

Duvall created a rustic theme for the dinner. One element in particular that made the event feel truly rustic was Elizabeth Porcher Jones’ calligraphy.  Her hand-written menu and welcome sign that she wrote on recycled chalkboards was a great décor detail.

Local invitation designer, Kelli Hall of Carte Blanche Invitations, teamed up with our Design Director, Jacqueline Lawrence, to create custom favors and place cards for last Friday’s CVB Wedding Giveaway rehearsal dinner.

For more information on Elizabeth’s fine calligraphy and illustration email her at elizporcher@gmail.com.

Tomme Hilton, a talented Charleston photographer, took some fabulous shots of our rustic rehearsal dinner. Check out Tomme’s photos at Timandcomotionpictures.com.

Favors included small jars of local honey from the “honey man” Robert Biggerstaff of Johns Island (843.766.8259) and local loose leaf tea from the Charleston Tea Garden. Using local vendors is a great way to “green” your next event. Check them out!
