Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Christina + Kirk

We cannot get enough of this absolutely stunning bride and her handsome groom! This vintage chic DIY wedding at Magnolia Plantation was the perfect day for Christina + Kirk! Plenty of details to go around..burlap and lace table runners, specialty lounge from 428 main, and a clear top tent with bistro lighting, these two were dancing under the stars all night long! The couple had vintage post cards as their guest book for guests to sign and grab a ribbon wand as they took a seat for the ceremony. The garden style blooms in soft blush hues could not be any prettier, and the brides bouquet was a true show stopper. Full lush cascading florals with a waterfall effect, oh my! These pictures captured by Richard Bell Photography are breath-taking! With a gorgeous bride and darling eyelet umbrella, you can't go wrong.

Tessa + Joe at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House

Tessa + Joe's military wedding at Magnolia Plantation was complete with pops of color, lanterns, coral charm peonies, and their furry friends! The ceremony was held outside on the dock overlooking the Ashley River, and the reception took place in the Carriage House. During the ceremony, Tessa + Joe introduced their Love Lock to symbolize their unbreakable love. The couple and parents had their own lock which they locked to a frame and threw the keys into the water. How sweet!



In the Carriage House, white drapes aligned the doorways, custom patterned table runners, and lanterns surrounded by colorful blooms. After a delicious plated dinner and speeches, it was time to cut the ombre ruffled cake. After the reception, guests lined the walkway to send Tessa + Joe off with a sparkler departure!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Christy + Brad

It was a perfect day for Christy + Brad's Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding. This couple wanted their wedding to encompass all of the joy and beauty that their life-long friendship has brought them, and what better way to celebrate their journey than having a plush wedding alongside the Ashley River?! Christy + Brad, accompanied by their intimate bridal + groom parties, said their "I do's" beneath the beautiful southern Oaks. Shortly after the ceremony, the newlyweds entered their glamorous cocktail hour to "Bear Down," the Chicago Bears fight song. Their entrance helped them bring a little piece of home to Charleston! Inside the plantation home, the happy couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious raw bar while watching the sun go down over the Ashley River. Following cocktail hour, Christy + Brad shared their first dance to one of their favorite songs, "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw. Guests enjoyed a mouthwatering five course meal and delicate macaroons, designed to match Christy's plush theme. Pink and silver accents were spread throughout the tablescapes and lounge area, including a custom cigar bar and specially made accent pillows. To end this glamorous celebration, Christy + Brad were sent off by their guests through a sparkler archway. The happy couple departed in a vintage limo on the way to their after party to continue the fun! A big thanks to Dana Cubbage and Film Anywhere for capturing this beautiful day!

Legare Waring House Wedding: Felicia + Sean

There was no better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with the beautiful union of Felicia and Sean at Legare Waring House. This couple was joined together in an official army ceremony, complete with uniforms and a saber arch. A beautiful chandelier hung in the middle of the avenue of oaks above the couple as they exchanged vows with a pretty arrangement of petals lining the aisle.



This DIY bride  brought her own creativity to the table with a combination of burlap and turquoise. Their place cards were individual sea shells placed in sand for guests to keep at the end of the night. The ivory lanterns on every table gave the space an elegant feel throughout the nigh with twinkle lights hanging from the trees. To honor those soldiers that could not be there to witness the wedding, Felicia + Sean set up a POW table to remind everyone the true meaning of memorial day.




Of course the night was not complete without dessert! A turquoise and white cake by Declare Cakes stole the show, especially when it was cut by the grooms sword!  However, it didn't stop there, the brides favorite homemade pies were brought by family members to accompany the cake.


Charleston Groove Factory brought down the house, especially with their rendition of “Faithfully” by Journey, that the couple shared their first dance too.  They said goodbye as they walked through a tunnel of glowsticks and departed in a 1950 white Bentley.

The dinner tables had a combination of  hydrangea centerpieces with lanterns and a smaller variety of flower arrangements on the patio. This couple had pattern done right with their custom navy and white pattern in just the right places. Cocktail sashes, table runners, invitation, and can't forget the favors! Each guests was given a homemade jam made from the grooms family farm in California, what a great favor! This couple thought of everything, they even had custom Hershey Kisses with their names and wedding dates, how cute! Lastly, the adorable navy and white stirrers tied everything together and added a little nautical touch.

Folly Beach Wedding: Courtney + Ashton

Pure Luxe Bride had a wonderful time planning and getting to know bride and groom Courtney + Ashton. This Pure Luxe bride and groom wed at a private home on Folly Beach, surround by friends and family. The ceremony was held dockside with the beautiful Charleston waterfront providing amazing views for this romantic and elegant wedding. An outdoor reception followed, where guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, delicious food, and a lively dance floor. This romantic and vintage inspired wedding was truly timeless and an elegant Charleston affair.



Vintage and elegant floral arrangements decorated tables, accenting the romantic and vintage theme that Courtney and Ashton created for their special day. Flowers and other decor elements consisted of shades of white, grey, mint, peach and yellow. When combined, these colors looked amazing!


Vintage inspired decor elements consisted of pink Italian glass votives and romantic, lush centerpieces.


What an amazing cake created by DeClare Cakes! This gorgeous creation incorporated the brides floral arrangements and looked beautiful beside the other romantic decor.


Incorporating unique lounge areas into a reception is a great way to make your wedding stand out and leave a lasting impression with your guests. Courtney and Ashton had a beautiful lounge area with custom pillows that matched the decor and theme of their wedding.



Duvall Catering provided bar and food services. Small bite stations consisted of sliders, tacos, and many more delicious treats that guests enjoyed. Fun musical entertainment was provided during the cocktail hour by the Calvin Taylor Band. The Chris Crosby Band continued the celebration with a lively reception, where guests danced beneath a beautiful Charleston sky and custom outdoor lighting.


Courtney and Ashton’s exit from their reception was truly vintage and romantic. As guests threw lavender on the newlywed couple, Courtney and Ashton departed through a lantern lit path where a vintage rolls royce awaited them.
