Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Jackie + Branson

You are in for a treat today! Jackie + Branson had a gorgeous Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding with tons of pretty details! The couple met while attending law school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later moved to Atlanta together after dating long distance. The bride loved the little details so for starters, there was a white top tent with blush draping and crystal chandeliers, of course! White and peach hued florals by Branch Design Studio, gold chivari chairs, glass chargers, and plenty of candlelight. For place cards, the guests found their seat by a mint colored macaroon with a gold sparkly flag noting the guests name, perfect after dinner sweet! A delicious dinner was served by Patrick Properties Hospitality Group along with a delicious cake gold brushed cake for dessert. Underneath the big Oak was the half moon bar, with the bride + groom's gold leaf monogram and a chandelier overhead, one of our favorite details of the big day! You can also find their monogram carried throughout the reception on their napkins, favors, menu's and more! After dinner, it was time to dance the night away with Quiana Parler and Friends and end the night with a sparkler departure! You can find this wedding recently featured in Southern Bride Magazine. See all the pretty captured by Aaron and Jillian Photography here!

Cottage on the Creek Wedding: Heather + Michael

Heather + Michael shared a stunning Cottage on the Creek Wedding on a beautiful day in September. Vibrant florals and personal details allowed the rustic ambiance of the Cottage to pop! Branch Design Studio made sure to reflect Heather's bubbly and bright personality in all of the florals. Eyes were drawn to her colorful bouquet filled with watermelon ripple garden roses, hot pink parrot tulips, coral ranunculus, and peach Juliet garden roses. Heather's father had officiated all of the weddings for his children, and Heather was no exception. They shared a sweet moment as he walked her down the aisle and began the ceremony. The bride + groom stood on a elegant handmade rug that was gifted to Heather by her best friend. The ceremony alter was softened by ivory fabric covering the shrimp boats, and tall galvanized buckets overflowing with coral spray roses, queen anne's lace, and coral ball dahlias. Once the couple said "I Do", guests enjoyed small bites and cold drinks overlooking Shem Creek. The bar was located underneath the stunning white gazebo which was adorned with a sparkling chandelier. After catching up with family and friends, guests moved inside to enjoy a plated dinner. The bright colors and arrangements on the tabletops were breathtaking. Long pieces of loose driftwood branches accompanied these florals on various tabletops. Heather placed a bag of Charleston shrimp and grit mix on each place setting for the guests to take home and enjoy a small piece of Charleston. After dinner, guests put on their dancing shoes and enjoyed the sunset overlooking Shem Creek. We loved working with Heather & Michael, and wish them everlasting happiness!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Anita + Shawn

Anita and Shawn came all the way from New Jersey to have their destination wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This couple traveled the world together, got engaged in Africa, and decided to say their "I Do's" in Charleston, SC. Their ceremony was held in front of the oak tree overlooking the Ashley river. PEW's provided vintage church pews for their guests seating with picture frames lining the aisle of the bride + groom as babies growing into their adult life. The bridesmaids looked stylish in their floral printed dressed with astilbe bouquets, we love the print in their outfits! The Carriage House was draped in soft ivory accented with pearls for a feminine touch. Bright blooms filled the table tops in hues of blush, mint, peach, and turquoise. Wooden centerpieces were filled with ranunculus,  hydrangeas, peach lisianthus, coral ranunculus and mint succulents. Mosaic Catering provided delicious eats and fun specialty cocktails for cocktail hour and the reception! The Little White Box, a 1974 Vintage Volkswagen bus, is a traveling photobooth that arrived later in the night for guests to enjoy! See all of the amazing photos captured by Monika Gauthier Photography!

Middleton Place Wedding: Lauren + Gentry

When we think of a classic southern wedding, Lauren and Gentry's Middleton Place wedding immediately comes to mind! These college sweethearts graduated from the College of Charleston and got engaged at the Middleton Place Oak, so it was only fitting for them to invite their friends and family to join them at Middleton Place for their wedding. Lauren spent the morning primping at The Inn, and then headed to the plantation for photos before her ceremony with the gardens as her backdrop, and perfectly accentuated her natural beauty and stunning Modern Trosseau lace gown! Lauren's flowers and color palate were southern perfection, including charm peonies, amaryllis, dusty miller, succulents, fringe tulips, and peonies. There were tears in everyone's eyes as the ceremony began in the Sundial Garden as Gentry saw his bride for the first time. At the close of a heartfelt ceremony, guests were escorted through the Octagonal Gardens to the Crane Pool for cocktail hour, accompanied by peacocks and lambs! Guests were served classic southern appetizers, including oyster shooters, the grooms favorite! But the party really started at sunset as everyone moved to the Middleton Place Pavilion for dinner and dancing with music accompanied .  After a touching blessing by our new groom in his stylish brackish bowtie, guests enjoyed an incredible meal and danced the night away. And what's a southern wedding without corn hole for everyone to enjoy and sweet grass flowers as favors! We loved working with Lauren and Gentry throughout their entire planning process, and wish them only the best with their future lives in Texas together!

Middleton Place Wedding: Caroline + Rob

This couple came all the way from England to Charleston for their Middleton Place wedding joined by family and friends. We transformed the pavilion with soft romantic hues, mini gold chandeliers, blush draping, and a gorgeous cake creating the elegant space they dreamed of. The brides bouquet was full of dahlias, lisianthus, roses, peonies and a trailing gold ribbon. The couple said their vows at the octagonal gardens, and then moved to the crane pool to enjoy delicious southern h'ordeuvres including Shepards pie, a British staple! After cocktail hour, guests moved inside the pavilion as the couple shared their first dance as husband and wife preformed acoustically by a close friend. Tasteful stations were provided by Cru catering and pralines were treated to guests as their favor and late night sweet! It was the perfect day for Caroline + Rob, thank you for letting us be a part of it!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Carolyn + Blake

Carolyn + Blake's colorful Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding was simply stunning! The tent was draped in a beautiful tiffany blue with pops of pink and gorgeous chandeliers. Sit back and take in all the pretty details; the perfect pair of pink Valentino's, personalized koozies, heart shaped ceremony fans, lanterns, specialty cocktails, custom bar pannels and much much more! The floral centerpieces created by Branch Design Studio were full of white hydrangeas, coral peonies, garden roses, astilbe, dusty miller, and ranunculus. White lounge groupings were set up on both sides of the bar with pillows of the couples new monogram. There was a specialty "Love" sign above the bar provided by 428 Main that lit up the night. The bride was a huge lover of champagne so they had mini champagne favors for their guests, how cute! Everything from the bright blooms, teal draping, gold sparkle, and lots of details made for the perfect romantic day! In the brides words, "Best Day Ever!"

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Michelle + Omar

Michelle + Omar had a dream wedding despite the summer rain at Lowndes Grove Plantation. The blush, navy, and gold accents glistened beneath the beautiful crystal chandeliers. This couple had adorable details; their personal monogram for the specialty bar, a custom black and white dance floor, swizzle straws, and dancing shoes! They couldn't bring their dog all the way from Miami, so they made a cut out so he could be there in spirit, we love this! The couple shared their vows in the black and white piazza at Lowndes, just perfect for an intimate ceremony! You can just see the love in their eyes, and this overhead shot of their sparkler departure is one of our favorites to date! Thanks to Leigh Webber photography for all the beauty.
