Caroline and Keating Crown stroll the grounds of 18th-century Middleton Place, which boasts the oldest landscaped gardens in the country.
Caroline, surrounded by her attendants, shines in a gauzy silk-chiffon Monique Lhuillier gown and Christian Louboutin heels, which, along with sapphire-and-diamond earrings, serve as her something blue. The women picked out their own dresses from Thread and accessorized them as they liked. "I didn't want them to look like bridesmaids' dresses," says Caroline. "I've been a bridesmaid so many times -- I know how it is."
At the reception, exposed oak tables feature peonies, garden roses, lilacs, anemones, and hydrangeas in combinations of silver and clear glass vessels. "It's like you pulled all the fine pieces out of your grandmother's china cabinet -- not too planned or perfect," says event planner Calder Clark.
