Whitney + Talbert's Charleston Beach engagement by Angela Cox Photography with stops at the Beach and The Battery, Hair by Swish and Makeup by Charlotte Yeager of Ooh! Events.
So, I know we've taken a bit of a blog hiatus, but I promise it's been for a great cause! Over the past few months, we've been slaving away over the premiere issue of A Lowcountry Wedding mag. It's been quite the process, we've been planning shoots, selecting real weddings and attempting to figure out the world of InDesign. We've had a few hang ups with some things behind the scenes, so we thank you for your patience! With it being our first issue, everything has taken a little longer than expected, but we'd rather have it perfect then send out something we're not 100% proud of...and we promise you're it's going to be well worth the wait! So, to hold you over until the end of the week, we thought you'd give you a sneak peek of the beautiful cover shot by the talented Angela Cox Photography at the stunning RiverOaks. Ash and Co. Bridal killed it with model Katie Cockman hair and makeup, as she rocked a gorgeous LulaKate gown and that beautiful Moon and Lola necklace....Do you like!?!
Some of you may remember me gushing about how fabulous The NotWedding was when it blew through Charleston earlier this summer, well for any of you that we’re unable to attend, I’ve got quite the recap for you to gawk over! The NotWedding brought together a slew of the Lowcountry’s most sought after wedding vendors for a memorable evening on the harbor at the Historic Rice Mill Building. Guests were treated to amazing dishes from Good Food Catering, tunes from Charleston Groove Factory and some bubbly as they danced the night away and soaked up all the dreamy inspiration! Thanks to Izzy Hudgins Photography, Lime Green Photography and Angela Cox Photography for capturing every wonderful detail!

Just in case you haven't heard, our friends at The NotWedding are heading to Lowcountry in just a few weeks and, lucky for all you Charleston wedding vendors, you can still be involved. That's right...it's the last call for vendor applications! This bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding is coming to the Rice Mill Building June 13th, and they'd love to hear from any local wedding vendors interested in joining in on all the fun! They especially love hearing about new businesses, so don't be shy! You can find out more and apply online at www.thenotwedding.com/apply.
I actually was lucky enough to recently mix and mingle with the crew of vendors involved in this season's NotWedding Charleston just a few weeks ago, and I'll tell you what...it is one talented group! We munched on delicious Lowcountry cuisine at Rue de Jean from Holy City Hospitality that included oysters, ham biscuits and mac and cheese as Angela Cox captured the entire evening. Can't wait til June!
Amanda & Jonathan's Arcade Engagement Session in Myrtle Beach by South Carolina Wedding Photographer Angela Cox Photography
My inbox has been dripping with Lowcountry wedding fabulousness, and I'll tell you what...this girl is not complaining! South Carolina photographer, Angela Cox, sent over this knockout and I couldn't wait to share these stunning images and darling DIY details. Meredith + Keith tied the knot in the laid back town of Beaufort this past Fall under dreamy Oak trees in Meredith's parent's backyard. Meredith's girls were dressed in gorgeous green Dessy dresses that they complimented with vibrant bouquets. All the maids arranged their own bouquets and the Bride's aunt tackled the boys boutonnieres....pretty impressive, huh? After the ceremony they moved into the Lucy Creek Dock house where guests were treated with Lowcountry cuisine from Wren's, grandma's pound cake and tunes from A Sound Celebration!
