Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Kiera + Brian

Kiera + Brian's Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding was an elegant day to remember! The day began with hair and makeup for Kiera and her bridesmaids in the Lowndes Grove Suite, while Brian and his groomsmen got ready at the French Quarter Inn. Both of these stunning locations made the perfect backdrop for getting ready photos. It's so special to capture the hours leading up to the ceremony! Kiera + Brian opted out of a first look and said "I do" at Saint Luke's Chapel. Kiera looked classic in a beautifully beaded Monique Lhuillier gown. As Kiera walked down the aisle to her handsome groom, she carried a spilling, textural bouquet of peach juliet garden roses, pink maria teresa garden roses, peach tree peonies, cafe au last dahlias, coral peach ranunculus, and more lush blooms. When Brian saw Kiera for the first time, he couldn't contain his excitement. The two said their vows with Brian's father as the officiant. As the newlyweds happily exited, guests made their way to Lowndes Grove Plantation for the reception! The tent was beautifully decorated with long ivory linened tables, mahogany chivari chairs, vintage China, majestic light blue napkins, and gorgeous pops of orange, coral pink, and pink ranunculus in thin clear glass bud vases. The cake was a beautiful shade of light blue with textured detail and vibrant pink maria teresa garden roses and majolica spray roses. The couple had specialty engraved cake forks that read "I do" and "Me too". Extra details we loved were the bride's custom Instagram signs with rose gold frames and place cards attached to vintage keys that doubled as bottle openers! Guests were treated to a plated dinner and a night of lively dancing to the sounds of Stephen Darby. Before the reception came to a close, Kiera + Brian departed under a sparkler archway into their vintage Rolls Royce getaway car. We adored this elegant, vintage design with shades of light blue and pops of vibrant blooms. Wishing this New York couple years of happiness to come!

William Aiken House Wedding: Chelsea + Israel

Chelsea + Israel's William Aiken House Wedding was a gorgeous celebration! Chelsea and her bridesmaids began their day with hair and makeup in the Carriage House Suite at WAH where Paper Dolls glammed up the girls for the big day! The girls wore beautiful silk robes and sipped mimosas all morning long while Israel and the boys got ready on Spring Street in downtown Charleston. When it was time for the couple to meet up for their first look, excitement filled the air at the William Aiken House! Israel's smile was contagious when he first laid eyes on his stunning bride. The bridal party then took photos on the grounds with historic King Street as their background before guests began to arrive! Chelsea +Israel said their "I do's" in an intimate ceremony of sixty guests with Israel's grandfather officiating the ceremony, a very special touch for both the bride + groom. After the ceremony, it was time for cocktails, appetizers, raw bar snacks, dances, and speeches! Chelsea + Israel shared their first dance as husband + wife to "Angel" by Jack Johnson while friends and family looked on happily  at the newlyweds. Once it was time for dinner, guests took their seats upstairs for a plated meal of braised beef short ribs and grouper. The tables were set with navy linens, majestic camel napkins, mahogany chivari chairs, lush pink and white blooms in the centerpieces, floral watercolor menus and place cards, and plenty of candlelight. The upstairs space at WAH served as the perfect spot for an intimate dinner. When it was time to cut the cake, guests were treated to delicious cake and champagne pairings before dancing the night away to the tunes of Rob Duren! The night concluded with everyone singing along to "Closing Time" by Semisonic before they sent the newlyweds off under a neon sparkler departure into downtown Charleston for a romantic rickshaw ride. Wishing nothing but happiness for Chelsea + Israel!

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!

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.
