Hilton Head Wedding {Ashley + Phil}

I have to say, I couldn't be more excited about this week's ALW line-up.  We've got one stunning Lowcountry wedding after another, a charming Downtown Charleston bridal session and even an Isle of Palms bachelorette party that will probably have you running for the nearest bottle of champagne just so you can join in on the fun! But to kick-start what's sure to be a very pin-able week over here, we're heading down to Hilton Head for Ashley + Phil easy-going, beach affair planned by Weddings with Leah.  This cute couple tied the knot in a low-key, ocean side ceremony in front of an intimate gathering of family and friends before making their way back to the beach house to celebrate the night away!  My favorite part...all of the wonderful pop-up stationery that the bride and groom designed themselves.  Genius! Thanks to amelia + dan photography for capturing this beauty. hilton head weddingshilton head wedding vendorshilton head wedding blogsbeach wedding invitationshilton head wedding venueshilton head wedding photographerswedding invitationscharleston destination weddingshilton head destination weddingsweddings with leahamelia + dan photographylowcountry weddingssouthern weddingscoastal weddingssouth carolina weddingsescort cards weddingcharleston weddingscharleston wedding blogswedding invitation mapcharleston wedding vendorswedding cateringcharleston wedding venuesmyrtle beach weddingsmyrtle beach wedding vendorsmyrtle beach wedding blogs

Lowcountry Venue {September Oaks Vineyards}

Today's stunning styled shoot at September Oaks Vineyard in Ridgeland, South Carolina was designed to show off the stunning Lowcountry wedding venue and highlight the 2012 Pantone Color of the year, Tangerine Tango...and I promise, you're going to love it! The 10-acre vineyard property originally was part of the McTeer estate and is now home to an award winning family owned boutique winery. Beginning in 2011, it has been made available as a wedding and event venue with a charming guest house, a paved arbor, gazebo and plenty of convenient onsite parking. Because September Oaks is a working vineyard and winery, all events are held outdoors. The dream team of Lowcountry wedding vendors started with Larger than Life Events who designed the chic affair while InventivEnvironments handled the dazzling decor and Marie Kato rocked it with the fabulous flowers (I die over those tulips!). Thanks to the talented Bita Bookman for the gorgeous images...

Lowcountry Weddings {Oyster Roast}

Because all of your guests will jump at the chance to head to the Lowcountry for a wedding (I mean, who doesn't want to spend a weekend in Charleston, Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach!?!), more often than not, it turns into a weekend long wedding celebration…which is all kinds of fantastic.  You may consider having a welcome party on Thursday, a bridal luncheon Friday, rehearsal dinner that evening and, possibly, a Bon Voyage brunch on Sunday morning..and you know I'll encourage you to have every, last one of them!  One thing that your guests will be expecting when coming to town for your big bash, is to experience and revel in the spirit of the Lowcountry.   They want to put their toes in the sand, smell the salt water, enjoy the atmosphere and indulge in our one-of-a-kind, Southern cuisine…so you better give ‘em just that!  One of my favorite staples of the South Carolina coastline is a big ol’ oyster roast which, luckily, works perfectly for a laid back, rehearsal dinner, and since Fall is right around the corner, you might as well get to planning... charleston weddings blogs, oyster roast, charleston wedding venues, lowcountry weddings, leigh webber photography

First thing’s first, you’ll need to pick the perfect venue that offers picturesque views and exudes that relaxed, Lowcountry vibe (and lord knows we've got plenty of them in Charleston, Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach!):

Besides a stunning, Lowcountry view, you'll need to make sure you have a few key elements...

1) Some trusty oyster roast tables, with trash cans (of course!)

2) Oysters (duh!), gloves, saltines, cocktail sauce, horseradish and some Tabasco, for those that like it spicy.
