Company Name: Calder Clark
Home Base: Charleston, South Carolina
Specialties Include: Executing a stunning event in in remote enclaves: “this challenge is our absolute forté.” As is layering special details into an evening or weekend to create the perfect vibe: “From a surprise rock band in a custom sailcloth tepee tent set deep in the mountains, to a five-course all-star chef’s dinner amid bespoke art walls in a sunken garden.”
Signature Aesthetic: A nuanced Southern sensibility balanced by a modern, sophistication via polished lines, soft colors, abundant candlelight and lush florals.
Dream Client: A classicist with the slightest edge; someone who dreams of a wedding marked by artistry, meticulous execution, and a collaborative nature.
Weddings of Note: In her days working in Washington D.C., Clark planned and designed the 2001 Inaugural Luncheon, The Kennedy Center Honors, the Rockefeller-Carnegie wedding, and the annual Bloomberg News/White House Correspondents’ Dinner After-Party. Since opening the doors in Charleston, a favorite has been designing the wedding of Susan Sarandon’s daughter, Eva Amurri Martino, whom Calder credits as being a stunning bride and a great collaborator.
