Yesterday, we joined the industry's best for a fabulous (yet rainy) afternoon of Lowcountry bridal fashion at Charleston Fashion Week's Spring Bridal Show...and I can tell you this, it did not disappoint! Make sure to check out our instagram feed to see a few snapshots of some of the lovelies and, of course, we'll recap things later this week. Okay, so now to the (REALLY) good stuff. We've teamed up with our talented friend and Lowcountry wedding vendor, Priscilla Thomas Photography, to bless one lucky, Lowcountry couple with one heck of a prize...(drum roll, please!) A Free Wedding Photography Package! Fabulous, I know! So, read the details below and get to pinning!
