Charleston Wedding Vendor {Brackish Bow Ties}

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! hilton head weddings

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!

Ring Bearers + Flower Girls {Wedding Attire}

I will tell you what...I love seeing the little ones all dolled up as they stroll down the aisle, introducing their beautiful bride.  They're so sweet and innocent and always look adorable which is why the flower girls and ring bearers attire is so clutch.  Recently, I've spotted some seriously precious outfits that I just had to share with yall.  P.S. I think I've developed a serious tutu obsession.  Don't even play, you know they're darling!

Lowcountry Boutonnieres {Wedding Details}

As you all know, it's Tuesday, which means it's detail day around here...and today, it's all about boutonnieres!  While the rules are flexible, most couples tend to accessorize any important person that is not part of the bridal party which a big, beautiful bout.  Normally, this tends to include parents, grandparents, ushers and readers.  While most leading ladies tend to stress over the style and look of the flowers they will carry down the aisle,  few give much thought as to what their husband-to-be will be sporting.  Our best advice is to let the your personal style, location and season lead the way and don't be scared to utilize non-floral materials such as feathers, cotton, fabric and even buttons.  Hopefully, this round up will get your creative juices flowing.. charleston wedding blogs, hilton head wedding blogs, myrtle beach wedding blogs, lowcountry weddings, southern weddings, boutonnieres, flowers, florist

Laura + Cory {Charleston Engagement}

If you've ever stepped foot in the Lowcountry, there's a good chance you've developed a soft spot in your heart for the region and I can always see that adoration when checking out a couple's engagement session.  Arizona couple Laura + Cory are currently planning their destination wedding in Charleston and they recently teamed up with Shannon of Riverland Studios for this dreamy engagement session at two of my favorite locations; the classic Legare-Waring House and the laid back shores of Folly Beach.  From their comfortable demeanor and flawless clothing selections to the stunning venues and romantic photography, every detail was pure perfection.  Oh, I forgot to mention that Laura even decorated one of the abandoned boats of Folly Road to create a personalized backdrop!

Sarah + Tyler {Virginia Wedding}

Oh yes, Stephen Gosling has done it again with this irresistible Southern wedding he shot this past September in the beautiful state of Virginia.  The couple, Sarah + Tyler, went with a natural color palette that complimented their outdoor, rustic setting.  Sarah looked like a sweet Southern Belle in her dainty strapless gown while Tyler looked handsome in his classic black tuxedo.  While I may have been drooling over the simple, yet stunning, decor in this wedding, I'm really in love with the images of the couple.  The weather and sunlight was perfect and I don't think they could have asked for a more beautiful backdrop.  Can we say frame-able!?

Spring + Summer Bouquets {Wedding Details}

I've been soaking up loads of wedding inspiration today and thought who better to share the fruits of my labor with then my favorite Lowcountry brides and I have a sneaky suspicion you won't be disappointed.  While I'll always love a gorgeous Fall or Winter wedding, truth be told, I'm more of a Spring/Summer gal...and I think it has a lot to do with the seasonal blooms.  It's no secret I'm a big fan of Pinterest and over the past few weeks it's provided me with a wealth of soft Spring and Summer bouquets that I couldn't wait to share with you!

Ashley + Quinn {Front Porch Farms Wedding}

Tuesday is always ‘detail day’ around A Lowcountry Wedding and rather than jumping right into our normal post, I thought we’d mix it up a little bit and share a Nashville affair that’s just as sweet as pie!  Ashley + Quinn were wed in an intimate, outdoor ceremony atop the soft, rolling hills of Music’s City’s most sought after wedding venue, Front Porch Farms (Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood got married there this past weekend!) and Wedlock Images was there to capture it all!  This antebellum house and its picturesque scenery was the perfect backdrop for this Spring-y Southern soiree.  What I love most is Ashley’s exquisite attention to detail on a small budget.  She tackled the bouquets, centerpieces, homemade sweets and jams and, even designed and constructed her bridesmaids’ dresses!  Impressive, eh?  As you can imagine, the combination of the one-of-a-kind venue, the fabulous details and Mrs. J’s Baking and Catering the guests were raving and craving for more! charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogscharleston, hilton head, myrtle beach weddings blog featuring southern lowcountry wedding ideas filled with the most sought after wedding venues, wedding vendors and beautiful wedding photography, charleston, hilton head, myrtle beach wedding blogs

Purple Wedding Pavilion at Patriots Point by Chi Photography

Just when I thought I couldn't possibly gawk anymore over a wedding, Chi Photography sent over Heather + Bart's purple wedding Pavilion at Patriots Point and I'm right back to square one!  For starters, I die over this color palette of brown, purple and green.  I mean, I almost can’t handle it.   It's vibrant and rich and just makes me want to see more and more of these gorgeous Branch Design Studio bouquets.   Amazing.  Secondly, the adorable couple picked the perfect Lowcountry venue to host their nuptials...wouldn't you say?  The Pavilion at Patriots Point not only offers a beautiful scenery, but it also allows offers countless options!  Heather + Bart had an elegant outdoor ceremony that was accessorized with chic white umbrellas, petals along the aisle and simple, yet stunning, lanterns.  After saying 'I do', they posed for portraits with the Charleston Harbor in the background before joining their guest under the tent to get the celebration started.  Relish Catering delivered a delicious dose of Lowcountry cuisine while Branch Design Studio transformed the space into a swanky, coastal atmosphere with fabulous centerpieces.

Charleston Wedding Dress Shopping {Brittani}

I'm excited to welcome back our good friend Brittani of Britt Croft Photography.  Brittani is constantly working with brides as she captures their wedding day but this year she finally gets to be a bride herself!  We've followed her journey as she decided on her gorgeous Lowcountry venue and picked her perfect photographer and today we get to hear all about the dress...  .

Hey ALW! I’m so excited to be back and sharing one of my favorite parts so far in the wedding planning process! Yes, I found my DRESS!

I’ll be honest; I was dreading this part of the process. I’m not the girl who had known all along what I wanted to walk down the aisle to my future husband in. I am short and petite with an athletic build, so I was convinced every dress was going to swallow me up and make me look like a big round cotton ball. We southerners love cotton, but we don’t want to look like cotton.

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

Since my family is still back in Maryland and it was so important to me that my mom and grandmother were a part of the process, I flew home for a weekend solely dedicated to wedding dress shopping. Something I was excited about was having two of the most important ladies to me there for support and honest opinions. It was really special and something I’ll never forget.

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

I had made an appointment at Ellie’s Bridal Boutique  in charming Alexandria, Virginia, and we were off bright and early that morning. I brought in a couple pages torn from a magazine and printed off my computer, and what I handed my consultant looked a little something like this…

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

I truly felt like my taste was ALL over the place and I had no idea what would work for my body. I also had a very modest budget, because although this is an important dress, on the practical side of things, I’ll wear it once or twice (bridals and wedding day), and that will be that.

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

My consultant, Crystal, was fabulous and super understanding of my overall confusion and modest budget. She told me to literally just walk around the floor and start pulling things that interested me, so that’s what my Mom and I did, and soon it was time to step into the dresses.

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

The first dress I put on was a gorgeous strapless Casablanca with rouching and a form fitting shape. I was in love. I could not believe how good I felt. We were all so excited and if the first one went so well, I couldn’t wait to try on a few more! So after a few minutes of oohing and ahhing, I jumped into my second dress. It just didn’t give me the same feeling. Nor did the third. Or the fourth. Or the fifth. Each dress I tried on, I’d compare to the first. I’d say, “It’s nice, but I like the first one better” or “It’s okay, but it doesn’t make me feel like the first dress did.” We were definitely seeing a pattern, so I put the first dress back on and that was all there was to it. That was it! I truly didn’t want to take it off. Crystal put a veil on me and handed me a little bouquet and I literally looked like a bride. I really loved what I saw in the mirror and I was elated with how simple and stress-free the process was!

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

I can’t spoil the fun and share an image of the dress, but I will say I am in love with Casablanca and for what I wanted (something relatively simple, still elegant, but within a reasonable price), I feel like Casablanca is a home run.

charleston weddings, Hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

What was the dress shopping process like for you when it was your turn? Or if you’re in the planning stages, re you dreading it like I was, or you know exactly what you want? It truly is a unique experience for everyone but since I was so uptight about it being stressful and “impossible,” I’m so happy that it all came together like it did. I cannot wait to get back into my dress in the next few months for my first fitting!

Fanci + Carl {Dunes Golf and Beach Club Wedding}

My husband is known around these parts for his rendition of, 'I Hope You Dance."  To be honest, the boy gives Ms. Lee Ann Womack a run for her money.  Just kidding but boy, does he like to belt it out!  So, needless to say, I was totally over-the-moon when Lee Ann's face showed up in this gorgeous Myrtle Beach affair from Paula Player Photography!  The country singer was on hand to see her darling cousin say 'I do' and, of course, sing a few notes!  The adorable couple, Fanci + Carl, tied the knot this past Fall at one of our favorite Lowcountry venues, the Dunes Golf and Beach Club, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony.  In addition to the talented Paula Player, the newlyweds enlisted the help of Myrtle Beach's finest wedding vendors to pull off their Big Day.  The team at Stunning & Brilliant Events designed and executed the entire evening to a tee while the amazing crew from Blossoms Events was  behind the jaw dropping floral arrangements.  All and all it was the perfect Lowcountry wedding!

Danielle + Adam {Jekyll Island Wedding} Brooke Roberts Photography

Who's up for a little slice of Lowcountry wedding heaven? Anyone? Anyone?...Bueller?  Well don't worry your pretty little heads because, as usual, the talented team at Brooke Roberts Photography has quite the treat for us today.  After Adam popped the question to his beautiful bride-to-be Danielle, the Chicago residents jumped right into the mix of wedding planning.  They quickly settled on an intimate Summer affair off the stunning Georgia coast.  They said their 'I do's' in a quaint ceremony at the Faith Chapel on the grounds of the Historic Jekyll Island Club.  After, the newlyweds slipped away for some images along the shores of the dreamy Driftwood Beach.  They continued the celebration at Latitudes 31 Restaurant on the Jekyll Wharf as guests enjoyed the jaw dropping surroundings and fabulous food!

Oceanside Edisto Beach Wedding from Julie Napear Photography

Hope everyone enjoyed a rainy weekend with friends at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival!  We're back at this week with a laid back, oceanside Edisto Beach wedding from the talented Julie Napear Photography.  Edisto is a beautiful coastal jewel that is about an hour from Charleston and two from Hilton Head...it's the perfect location for a low-key affair with some seriously breathtaking views.   The couple, Adrienne + Sean, met while living in the Bay Area and decided a Lowcountry wedding was a must for their August nuptials.  They wanted something simple and touching and that's exactly what they got!  Their ceremony was held on the beach with standing room only before they headed back inside for an evening of dancing.

Seersucker {Wedding Details}

We're in the midst of gearing up for quite the wedding season here in the Lowcountry and with that comes one of our favorite Southern elements...seersucker!   When the weather gets warmer, seersucker is the fabric of choice along the coast and it's no wonder brides feel the need to doll up their Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach and Charleston weddings with this classic material into their wedding day decor.  You'll most commonly find our Southern grooms donning a seersucker suit but it's not unusual to see it accessorizing lovely invitations or gorgeous bouquets.  From favors and gowns to bridesmaids dresses and linens, we've rounded up a sampling of our favorite ways to include seersucker in your Lowcountry wedding! a lowcountry wedding blog featuring charleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

Kristen + Taylor {South Carolina Weddings} Virgil Bunao

I know this is a totally biased comment, but I just can't help but love beautiful South Carolina weddings.   Lowcountry brides always do a swoon-worthy job of tying together their appreciation of friends and family with their timeless style and ability to have a good time.  Their weddings always make for a memorable Southern affair...and Kristen + Taylor's classic Providence, South Carolina bash was no different!  Photographed by the one-and-only, Virgil Bunao, the couple treated guests to a gorgeous tented reception with an open bar, an amazing spread from Creative Catering and lively tunes from DJ Master G that kept the party going til the wee hours of the morning!
