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.

William Aiken House Wedding: Megan + Tim

Megan + Tim's shabby chic William Aiken House wedding was a beautiful sea of purples and greens illuminating the W. And who says short wedding dresses don't steal the show? The bride was wearing a beautiful short lace wedding dress that showed off her unique style and fabulous wedding shoes! And who better to capture the evening than Hyer Images, take a look at these stunning photos! 019047099189

This sweet couple exchanged vows right before sunset under a stunning floral arbor done by Branch Design Studio. Their smiles and laugh were truly contagious and radiated throughout the night. They danced together for the first time ever as Mr. and Mrs. Vogler to " In My Life " by The Beatles. Rather than the typical band or DJ as entertainment, they couple had a string quartet play throughout the night. It was a romantic and classic addition to the evening.

No guest left this party hungry! They had a late night snack of chicken and waffles, a true southern staple! To top it all off, they had a fried sweets dessert station complete with donut holes, cheesecake rangoon, and cinnamon apple pie eggrolls, yum! The newlyweds left under a tunnel of sparklers held by the people who love them most.
