Hermosa for a Historic Rice Mill Wedding

Tyrrell and Michael Venditti

Charleston, South Carolina 

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today on the blog I am featuring Tyrell and Michael Venditti’s sweet southern wedding in Charleston, SC. This sweet duo from Texas chose the Historic Rice Mill as their venue for their big day and it did not disappoint! Tyrrell and Michael tied the knot with a front row view of the historic waterfront dock and their dreamy ceremony was followed by a gorgeous  reception boasting with historical charm. Being a Charleston native, I know just how breathtaking this venue is but check it out for yourself in the pictures below thanks to Once Like a Spark Photography

Tyrrell wanted those near and dear to her to feel very special on her wedding weekend so we designed a plethora of elegant pieces for her bridesmaids, mothers, aunts, and grandmothers to wear. To kick off her lowcountry themed wedding weekend, Tyrrell wore a Hermosa oyster shell necklace for the rehearsal dinner.  This custom necklace was made with aquamarine beads, abalone teardrops, freshwater pearls, and a large painted oyster shell.

On Tyrrell’s wedding day, she wore a gorgeous Augusta Jones dress and her five bridesmaids wore pink Lula Kate dresses accessorized with Hermosa  earrings. For these earrings, I designed dangles that would be both elegant and fun against the ruffling neckline of the Lula Kate dresses. The bridesmaid earrings featured white freshwater coin pearls on a brushed gold quatrefoil link and 14kt gold filled french ear wires.

“The jewelry was fabulous! I see my bridesmaids wearing their earrings all the time. I loved them so much that I actually bought myself a pair after the wedding.”

I also created custom pieces for the Mothers, the grooms Grandmother (Mimi) and Tyrrell’s two Aunts. For the mothers, I designed two gold wired birds nest necklaces with Tyrrell’s wedding date engraved on a charm. For the groom’s Grandmother, I created a gold oyster pendant on a rose quartz faceted rosary chain and a charm engraved with the wedding date. For the Aunts, I made a gold oyster shell pendant with white freshwater pearls and the Rutledge pearl necklace which consisted of seven white freshwater pearls on a gold filled chain.

“My husband’s grandmother thanked me for the necklace every time I spoke with her on the phone and saw her in person, for nearly a year after the wedding.”

I also assisted Tyrrell in making oyster ornaments for her guests.  She had planned on making them herself but ran out of time.  I loved how these turned out and will be making more for the upcoming holiday season!

“Haley was so accommodating and able to make some of my last minute ideas such as my oyster ornaments that I gave away as gifts to the guests. I had originally thought I would DIY these. That DID NOT happen. But, Haley jumped in to save the day last minute.”

When I asked Tyrrell about her experience with Hermosa, she said,

“Hermosa Jewelry was recommended by my wedding planner, Megan Chandler. I love everything Haley makes it is so unique and crafted by hand. I also loved the Charleston influence.”

“Haley is such a great partner. She listens to exactly what you want and allows you to be part of the design process while also making fabulous suggestions. I feel like she was able to meet me exactly where I needed her and able to allow me to assist in the selection and design process while still bringing her expertise to the table.”

“Everything was so personalized and special, but also fashionable and jewelry that each person was able to wear over and over again after our wedding day.”

Tyrrell was an amazing bride to work with! We had so much fun designing pieces for her wedding party and I loved helping her out with her Oyster shell ornaments! I am absolutely honored to have accessorized Tyrrell and her Bridal party on such a special day.
