Custom Jewelry for a Sweet Southern Wedding Under the Oaks

Catherine Smith & Ted Sullivan

Edisto Island, South Carolina

It’s Wedding Wednesday here on the blog and I am so excited to reveal Catherine Smith and Ted Sullivan’s picture perfect wedding at Brookland Pointe on Edisto Island in South Carolina.  The bride and groom chose this location because Ted’s family owns a beach house on Edisto Island, and it was the first place he took Catherine for a weekend getaway. Ted and Catherine’s ceremony took place beneath the majestic live oaks covered with Spanish moss overlooking the marsh at sunset. The views were breathtaking, the weather was perfect and the romance between the couple set the tone for this intimate, outdoor celebration.

When Catherine asked me to create the custom jewelry for her wedding, I was ecstatic! Catherine and I had gone to college together and were in the same sorority so helping her create the perfect custom jewelry on such a monumental day was a huge honor.

“I loved working with Haley! She made the entire process fun and easy from start to finish. I was able to go to Haley’s studio and pick out each bead and jewel for my custom jewelry. She took my ideas and made them come to life!”

The four bridesmaids’ earrings were made of brushed gold quatrefoil links with white freshwater coin pearls and clear Swarovski crystal accents. These dangle style earrings were both subtle and elegant against the buttery yellow bridesmaid dresses designed by Bari Jay from Charleston Bella Bridesmaids. When Catherine saw the final product of the earrings she loved them so much that she had me make a pair for her as well!  In addition to the earrings, Catherine wanted four custom bracelets.  For Catherine’s sister, I designed an elegant white freshwater coin pearl cuff; and for the mothers a classy two stranded white, freshwater pearl bracelet with a beautiful crystal and gold clasp.

“I had 5 pairs of earrings created for myself and my bridesmaids. Haley created a special bracelet for my sister who was my maid of honor. I also had bracelets made for my mother, Ted’s mother and Ted’s step mother. I presented the custom jewelry to my girls at our bridal luncheon and everyone was brought to tears.”

“My favorite thing about the earrings is that they were perfect for my wedding day but I still wear them all the time and without fail get compliments!”


When I asked Catherine about her experience with Hermosa Jewelry and she said,

” I chose Hermosa Jewelry for my wedding day because I was able to completely customize my jewelry and Haley creates beautiful, unique pieces.  I am so happy with the way that everything turned out. Haley creates one of a kind custom jewelry at very reasonable prices. She made the entire process fun, which can be difficult to do as stressful as wedding planning is.”

Catherine was absolutely amazing to work with and such a stunning bride! I am honored to have been a part of her gorgeous wedding by accessorizing her entire bridal party in custom jewelry. Thank you!
