Amy & Evan's Fall Engagement in Hilton Head + Bluffton, South Carolina by Southern Wedding Vendor Britt Croft Photography
We love when stunning Hilton Head weddings roll across our inbox, especially when a dreamy Lowcountry wedding venue is involved! This beauty kicked off with a traditional ceremony at quite frankly one of the prettiest coastal churches I've ever seen, The Church of the Cross in Bluffton. After saying their 'I do's', they continued the celebration with a beautiful Oldfield Club wedding in Okatie, South Carolina. Guests were treated to an evening of Southern cuisine before they hit the dance floor...and they hit it hard! Thanks to Amy-Marie Kay Photography capturing the amazing, and lively, celebration!
Margaret & Jesus married on June 22, 2013 under large majestic oaks on the coast of South Carolina. The couple lives in DC and wanted an intimate southern destination wedding, and Lord knows that's exactly what they got when they ventured to the Lowcountry! The overall vibe was natural, beautiful and elegant. Margaret was breathtaking in a stunning Vera Wang wedding gown and gold sparkly Kate Spade flats. She carried loose stems of white and yellow seasonal flowers with a pop of pink. The ceremony was lined with tin bails of sweet baby's breath flowers. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the cocktail hour on custom built wooden tables draped with lace and beautiful flowers.
For the reception, Margaret & Jesus joined their guests in a large tent draped with cafe lighting and enjoyed local southern flair foods and seafood paella. The couple loves hot sauce so, naturally, they had to have a hot sauce bar. The Tao Reed band played well into the night. Everyone lit paper lanterns in the end and were whisked away in a vintage green car. It was an celebration with impeccable style in a natural and elegant setting and we're so glad Donna Von Bruening was there to capture all the details!

Debra Gulbas Photography teamed up with Embellished Events for this stunning, low key beach affair in Bluffton, South Carolina. Just outside of Hilton Head, Bluffton is one of the Lowcountry's hidden treasures for brides hoping for a laid back wedding with that signature, dreamy scenery...which is exactly what today's couple, Nicole + Blake, took full advantage of! They kept it simple with a beautiful ceremony on the beach before celebrating the night away with their closest friends and family! I'm totally loving (okay, maybe drooling over) Nicole's oh-so-flattering gown and her gorgeous, seasonal bouquet. Doesn't it make you want to head for the beach?
I've said it before, but one of my biggest wedding regrets is not having bridal portraits taken. It's just so necessary. You get one good run thru of how you're going to look the day of. You can test out your hair, your shoes and get a feel for your photographer. It also gives you the time to capture some really beautiful (and frame-able) images and will free up precious wedding day minutes. So, when my baby sister gets engaged one of these days, girlfriend's getting bridal portraits taken whether she likes it or not (Sorry, Emma, but it's happening!). Jacque teamed up with destination wedding photographer, Kristin Vanzant for a gorgeous coastal bridal session at one of the Lowcountry's most stunning venues, The Inn at Palmetto Bluff. The Inn's located in Bluffton, South Carolina which is just south of Charleston and right outside of Hilton Head Island and Savannah...and it is a sight! It's the definition of the word 'Lowcountry' and is the perfect retreat for a destination bride looking for joyous weekend long wedding celebration. On this low-key day in March, darling bride-to-be Jacque and Kristin Vanzant toured the expansive property from the tides to the Waterside Chapel for a timeless afternoon of photographs.
