Lucy + Drew's Nautical inspired Old Wide Awake Plantation wedding in Charleston, SC by Lowcountry Vendors Cru Catering, Carmen Ash Photography, PaperDolls Hair and Makeup, Charleston Flower Market and more!
Last, but certainly not least, I'm excited to share the beautiful styled shoot Megan of Mingle created this past summer at Marion's in the French Quarter which was included in our premier issue of A Lowcountry Wedding Mag! Megan was kind enough to invite us a long to enjoy the styling of the great Mingle minds, photography from Paige Winn Photo and dreamy gowns from Maddison Row! Thanks to Paperdolls Hair & Makeup transforming model Katie into the picture-perfect Charleston Bride. First Bloom of Charleston whipped vibrant bouquets and centerpieces while Limos for Less let us ride in style! Even though we wanted to (and we sure did try!), we couldn’t include everything in the magazine, so to see all the details you can head on over and check out the complete Mag here!

When the wheels started churning for the premier issue of A Lowcountry Wedding, I realized we had to knock it out of the park with our fashion editorial. Like, OUT. OF. THE PARK...and I think we did! We were blessed to have the amazing Angela Cox Photography join us (she's seriously a dream) along with the seriously talented Ashley of Ash and Co. Bridal. Not to mention, we had the privilege of calling RiverOaks home on that steaming hot August morning! Our gorgeous Bride Katie rocked gowns from a few of our favorite establishments including Kira Elizabeth Designs, Maddison Row and LulaKate, along with jewels from Moon & Lola and Candy Shop Vintage!

A few weeks ago, thanks to the hospitable ladies of Easton Events, I had the pleasure of spending an evening knee-deep in Charleston wedding fashion (just how I like it!) at the lovely Zero George. If you’ve never moseyed on over to the quaint hotel on the corner of George and East Bay, you’re simply missing out. It’s effortlessly luxurious vibe made me feel like I had stumbled upon a little hidden secret in the heart of the Holy City. It was the perfect backdrop to enjoy a collection of swoon-worthy gowns from Maddison Row and their dreamy counterparts from Bella Bridesmaid. Charleston Events Hair and Makeup finished the off the looks with show-stopping hair and makeup while Sara York Grimshaw designed elegant arrangements throughout. As always, thanks to the talented Virgil Bunao for capturing all the pretty!
