Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Katie + Jesse

Katie and Jesse’s Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding was the perfect venue to host the best day of their lives. After getting ready, the couple met on the walkway to the dock for their intimate first look captured by Aaron and Jillian Photography. Lowndes Grove Plantation is a beautiful venue due to its location tucked away on the waterfront with the classic style oak trees on the front lawn and a historic home on the property. The tent was full of cafe lighting and chandeliers with neutrals and accents of jewel tones for a gorgeous fall wedding. The couples sweet pup even decided to make an appearance for the wedding day and for some adorable photos! See all the pretty details below!

Fabulous Friday: Groom's Gift

While many aspects of the wedding day focus on the bride, ladies, don't forget about your man! On the wedding day, gift him with something that signifies your love and excitement to spend the rest of your life with him. This will set the tone for the day and always be a reminder of that special day! You can do this by purchasing a thoughtful gift (big or small) or writing a handwritten note. Of course, it's always nice if it can be incorporated into his wardrobe or wedding day accessories. It creates a great picture opportunity and will make him feel equally as special on such an important day. Below are some ideas we came up with that he is sure to love! 

Folly Beach Wedding: Kelly + Bert

We could not have pictured a better way to end our busy fall season than with Kelly + Bert's perfect Folly Beach Wedding. This sweet couple rented out an enormous house right on the beach to house their family + friends for the weekend. The house also doubled as the perfect venue for their wedding! With high tide coming in right at 4PM, Kelly + Bert had an intimate standing ceremony on the porch of the house. The bridal party was able to have a long beautiful processional up the boardwalk, and Kelly had that sweet bridal moment that every bride wishes for. All eyes were on her as she walked the boardwalk with her dad and met Bert underneath the floral arbor that awaited her. Bert's father was able to officiate the wedding adding personal details and sweet remarks. The couple had written their own vows and the beautiful words brought tears to their loved ones. After the ceremony, the porch was transformed for cocktail hour! Guests were able to look out upon the beach while sipping on a cool beverage provided by Spike. After grabbing a plate of food, guests headed downstairs to the reception area. Kelly's vision of jewel tones came to life with plum napkins and over-spilling greenery. The tabletops were adorned with gold flatware and jewel toned votives. Kelly's cake was truly one of a kind, the purple ombre coat accented the reception space perfectly. This was such a fun crowd, and they danced in the sand till the night came to an end! Kelly + Bert could not have been more in love, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Barn at Walnut Hill Wedding: Nikki + Carl

 Nikki + Carl said their vows in front of the ruins of an old chimney at The Barn at Walnut Hill.  This low country gem tucked away on John's Island was the perfect complement to the style of this sweet couple. The Barn was transformed into an elegant bohemian reception space. Vintage floral plates were to die for, and the space truly came together with the florals that perfectly accented the china.The wildflower inspired design was even taken up into the ceiling. The old chandelier that came with the barn was draped in flowing greenery and sprigs of lavendar, a perfect example of taking advantage of the full potential of a venue! Nikki + Carl were the definition of sweet tooth's! Following dinner, guests were offered 7 different kinds of desserts provided by Swank! Who even know Peach Iced Tea Macaroons existed?! If that wasn't enough, Nikki provided a candy buffet for guests to take a sweet treat home at the end of the night. Nikki + Carl ended their night sitting around the fire pit laughing with friends and family. Thanks to Cana Mcdonald with Riverland Studios for capturing the pretty!

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!

William Aiken House Wedding: Megan + Davan

Megan + Davan had a perfect William Aiken House wedding. This venue perfectly complimented their art-deco design and vibrant love for one another. Their wedding was full of eye-catching details, from the bride's elegant Pronovias dress paired with studded Prada heels, to her luscious bouquet filled with rich Anemones. Megan was the center of attention all night long, along with her handsome groom, of course! The groom opted for a classic black tux. They had a stunning clear top tent draped in silver and over sized chandelier that glistened over the dance floor. The lounge area also provided a luxurious space with a bright silver ottoman, surrounded by tufted couches,  rich floral arrangements, and candlelight.These special details made for an elegant and intimate reception where friends and family danced the night away. In true southern form, Megan + Davan were sent off by their guests through an archway of sparklers into Downtown Charleston on a romantic rickshaw ride!  It was truly a wedding to remember.

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!"

Legare Waring House Wedding: Rosie + Daniel

Rosie and Daniel chose the historic and beautiful Legare-Waring House for their rustic spring wedding! The couple wanted to accent their alma-mater in their decorations, with peach and lavender florals from Branch Design Studio throughout their entire ceremony and reception, Go Clemson!! With details like wooden wine barrels and vintage  lounge furniture, this upscale rustic wedding was one for the books! This Legare Waring House wedding was complete with cafe lighting over the entire reception space, and gorgeous crystal chandeliers amongst the oak trees, this reception was absolutely stunning as the sun began to set over the water.  Our bride and groom both spent the morning at the Legare -Waring House getting ready before their intimate first look amongst the oak trees. After their pre-wedding photo shoot with Courtney Dox, the bridal party made their way to the lawn of the house, and down the isle! After a beautiful evening ceremony, it was time to celebrate! Our newest Mr. and Mrs. shared their first dance to "Crazy Love", played live for them by The Root Doctors, and then joined their family and friends for a night filled with love and celebration. After an incredible meal from Cru Catering, and a delicious cake from DeClare, Rosie and Daniel spent their night dancing with friends and family and enjoying their stunning open air reception. We're so happy Rosie and Daniel chose to go through their planning process with us, and we loved watching them begin their new and exciting future together!
