Savannah Elopement at The Dock House at Bradley Point with coastal details by Jenrette Romberg
Y'all, this one is for the boys! Reese Moore Photography teamed up with Fabulous Fete to show off how to celebrate an engagement party for the groom-to-be! So, get ready to revel in the finer aspects of contemporary Southern living and every gentleman's favorite things as the wedding planning gets underway, as showcased by this hunting-lodge-meets-fabulous-inspiration shoot for this Upstairs at Midtown wedding engagement party. The food (those mouthwatering ribs!) was catered by caterer extraordinaire Maybank Catering, while our friends at Squeeze OnSite were the magicians behind the Growler Station and Bourbon Bar.
A bourbon bar, cigar rolling station, and a growler station of craft beers offer the groom and groomsmen-to-be a plethora of ways to celebrate tying the knot before sending them off with a Brackish Bow Tie favor. Everyone can happily tuck into that enormous, mouth-watering rack of BBQ ribs, coleslaw, and a modern but elegant cake from Ashley Bakery. Exposed brick, deer antlers, silver camp cups, a vintage shipyard chain, and gentlemen's flasks help round out an elegant masculine theme that even the most feminine of brides is sure to love, while fine trout-adorned china, metallic chargers, and hops make for chic, colorful details.

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Charleston Fashion Week's Spring Bridal Show, which was, as I’m sure you could guess, over-the-top and fabulous. Not only were the gowns amazing, but upon arrival, I was greeted by a group of talented Charleston wedding vendors, one of my personal favorites were the boys of Brackish Bow Ties!
These two gents, Jeff + Ben, are the brains behind Brackish Bow Ties. When Ben was tying the knot, he designed the first turkey feather bow ties for his groomsmen to sport on his wedding day. Naturally, they were a huge success!
Based in Charleston, South Carolina, these Lowcountry beauties are perfect for the Southern outdoorsman in your life. The crew at Brackish Bow Ties handpicks each and every feather, so no two bow ties are exactly alike.
The craftsman ship doesn't stop at the tie itself, each work-of-art comes wrapped in burlap in its very own hand-branded wooden storage box to make preservation easy.
