Caitlin + Al's Blush, white and gold Hibernian Hall reception at Summerall Chapel wedding ceremony at The Citadel by Riverland Studios and Hamby Catering & Events
Ashley + Greg were married in the heart of the Holy City at the French Huguenot Church in a traditional ceremony. After saying 'I do', the couple and their bridal party spent some time posing on the cobblestone streets with their photographer, Dana Cubbage, before joining their guests at the Rice Mill Building for an elegant ivory + navy wedding designed by Candice of Yoj Events. Branch Design Studio created stunning floral arrangements filled with orchids, astilbe and ranunculus while Good Food Catering delivered a tasty array of Lowcountry cuisine. We're loving Bride Ashley's gorgeous gown, the beautiful Jim Smeal creation and the cozy lounge area.

Romantic Pink Magnolia Plantation Wedding by Charleston wedding vendors amelia + dan photography, Pure Luxe Bride, Gathering Floral + Event Design, white on daniel island
A gorgeous Sarah Seven gown, hints of baby's breath and sweet Southern details make for a laid back (and gorgeous!) Magnolia Plantation wedding from our friends at Riverland Studios. With the help of Duvall Events, Rachele & Michael were married in a magical outdoor ceremony under the magnificent oak trees on the carriage house lawn. The bride chose a color palette of cream with turquoise accents, which was the perfect compliment to this romantic summer wedding. We love the elegant and chic decor placed against the rustic outdoor setting. The newlyweds celebrated their reception inside, which exuded an equal amount of sweet Lowcountry charm- complete with Spanish moss and mason jar chandeliers, twinkling strings of lights, and an assortment of vintage chinaware.

I know you ladies love your Southern weddings, but when it comes down to it, you're always craving Charleston weddings! Lord knows we can't blame you and I have a feeling this Old Exchange Building stunner will do just the trick. Carmen Ash Photography teamed up with the talented team at Southern Chic Weddings for this formal Lowcountry affair and we're loving every minute of it. Thanks to Carmen for filling us in on all the details...
Adam and Jenna met in February 2008 after Duke played a rugby game at Elon. Covered in mud and sporting a fading black eye, Adam convinced Jenna to take him to her sorority party afterwards. At the end of the night, Adam went back to Duke and didn't call. Once Jenna made the first move, they met up a few weeks later. Adam spent the next five weeks wooing her before she would agree to go to his fraternity formal in Williamsburg. She finally agreed, and they had a great time.
Fast forward two years through rounds of parties, formals, homecomings, trips to Myrtle Beach, and graduations. Jenna went backpacking in New Zealand and Adam came to visit. Adam got sent on an assignment to China with his job, and came home for a wedding in July. On July 19, 2010, the morning after the wedding, Adam took Jenna for a picnic at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Duke's campus. Taking a walk to cool off, Adam stopped under a trellis and dropped to one knee. Jenna was all too happy to accept.
Both had moved around growing up, and neither had a home town to default to. The obvious choice was a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina- Jenna's favorite city . Jenna took several trips to Charleston in between trips to China, working with vendors from 12 time zones away. They chose the historic Old Exchange Building for the reception. They picked a florist, a planner, and a caterer with one meeting, then found other vendors strictly using the Internet. Jenna ordered the perfect wedding dress from Amsale- complete with a big bow and pockets. With a few local friends including another bride, everything started falling into place. Then Jenna and Adam moved from China to Colorado. Another quick trip to Charleston to solidify their plans brought them to choose the Confederate Home and College garden for their November ceremony. Little did they know that the weekend before their I Do's, Steven Spielberg would be sitting in the same garden at Susan Sarandon's daughter's wedding.
