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!

Last week I got to attend my second The Knot party and it was delightful! (Not that I would expect anything less.) They hosted it at one of Charleston’s newest wedding venues, The Gadsden House, and invited some of the top wedding vendors to create and attend this event filled with Pantone‘s colors of the year- Serenity and Rose Quartz. With a live artist onsite to paint tapestry backgrounds and mini pineapples in the floral arrangements, I couldn’t get enough of all the little details!

I love being able to attend these events with fellow wedding colleagues before the hustle and bustle of wedding season hits. This was a great way to start off the craziness!
