Creek Club at I'On {Kristen + Nicholas}

I know, I know!  Sorry doesn’t quite make up for the complete lack of blogging that’s taken place on ALW over the past week.  I was off in Boston enjoying a business-related vacay, and while I had every intention of getting a few posts in, faulty hotel internet and the pure joy of being semi-unplugged (minus instagram, you know I can’t give that up!) was kind of awesome :)  So, I apologize for the abrupt pause in your daily dose of Lowcountry wedding inspiration and email response, but I’m now officially back and kicking off this week with a gorgeous Charleston wedding from the talented, Richard Bell Photography.   This Bride + Groom combined a lovely pink and purple color palette with some mouthwatering ham biscuits, sweet potato fries and even some Firefly vodka for a one-of-a-kind celebration at the Creek Club at I'On! charleston weddingscharleston wedding programscharleston wedding photographywedding specialty drink, firefly and lemonadecharleston wedding groom in a grey suitwedding orchid boutonnieres charleston wedding vendorscharleston wedding venue creek club at i'onlowcountry weddings at creek club at i'oncharleston wedding bouquet, country & lace floristcharleston wedding father of the bride walking down the aislewedding instagram hashtagcharleston weddings at creek club at i'onsweet potato fries wedding hors d'oeuvres

Southern Wedding {Emily + Will}

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Lowcountry weekend, and for those of you in Charleston, hope you made a trip out to Kiawah for the PGA Championship!  We're kicking off this sleepy Monday with a sweet, Southern wedding in Clemson, South Carolina from Charleston-based wedding photographer, Lauren Jonas.  Emily looked effortless in a romantic lace gown with a soft up-do and white hydrangea bouquet.  Will and the rest of the guys rocked tan suits accented with purple ties and bouts.

Lowcountry Wedding {Bridesmaids Dresses}

You've got to admit that our Lowcountry brides have an impeccably elegant Southern style...I think they're just born with it :)  So it's no surprise they make sure their maids are dressed to the nines, as well.  They keep it sophisticated with a sweet pastel color palette for a classic plantation reception or they'll spice it up with bright, trendy patterns for an oceanside, Myrtle Beach affair.  They'll dress their Lowcountry gals in flowy, long gowns that are perfect for a relaxed Hilton Head wedding or they'll keep it short with a sassy cocktail dress fitting of a Downtown Charleston soiree.  Bottom line, stick with your oh-so-fabulous taste when choosing your bridesmaids dresses, I promise they'll thank you for it later!

Alicia + Wade {Pensacola Wedding}

Alicia + Wade tied the knot this past June on the shores of Pensacola, Florida.  The couple and their bridal party prepped for the big day at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel where the award-winning photographer team from Studio One Eleven Inc. caught some fabulous images!  Alicia dazzled in a strapless gown complimented by a stunning bouquet while her maids rocked dresses in varying shades of purple.  Wade and his men looked dapper in white.  After the perfect sunset ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to the Sanders Beach-Corinne Jones Community Center to kick off the evening's festivities.  Alicia left the decor to the talented staff at Southern Floral Traditions, who completely transformed the venue.  What a beautiful (and fun) wedding!?!

Tiffany + Kevin {Washington Wedding}

I love when I open my inbox and I see a completed questionnaire from one of our brides.  I think it's so easy to get caught up in all the craziness that wedding planning brings and it's not until after the wedding that you can take a step back and really see what is truly important.  I'm excited to share today's Washington Wedding from CALIMA Portraits along with Bride Tiffany's heartfelt answers.  The photography is just beautiful and Tiffany + Kevin are a precious couple.  Make sure you read which image is her favorite...it made me tear up a bit!

Tell us a little bit about how you met your husband... 
Kevin and I are from the same hometown and have a lot of mutual friends, so we saw each other here and there throughout the past 7 years. We didn’t become close though until about 4 years ago when I moved back home and was looking for a place to live, he conveniently had a room to rent in his new house and we quickly became inseparable.

Tell us about the proposal...
We were staying at a nice resort a couple days before Thanksgiving, at the end of the night we were just laying in bed talking about our life together and he pulled the ring out. It was sweet and great timing. I found out later that he had been trying so hard the whole day/night to find the perfect moment. We were engaged for 1.5 years before the wedding.

Your wedding was filled with tons of gorgeous details.  Did any have special meaning? What was your favorite part? 
That is tough. Having such a homemade wedding, most of the details were personal. A couple of my favorite things were writing our own vows and having a good friend officiate, our arbor made by my dad and brother, and our table runners that I worked on with my mother in law.

Out of the entire day, what was the most memorable moment?
Another hard question.  I think the most memorable part for me was walking down the aisle and seeing my husband's face, even though we had our first look pictures it was like seeing him for the first time.  He normally isn't a very emotional guy, but he was sobbing.  I remember thinking, 'this is it, this is forever.'  Our whole wedding was extremely emotional and heartfelt.  It was exactly what I wanted.

How did you choose your venue?   
We were on a pretty strict budget and we preferred an outdoor wedding. The park had everything we were looking for, a gorgeous backdrop, wide open space, and the freedom to bring in our own food, etc.

Tell us about the menu...
Another very personal part of our wedding was the food.  There was sooo much of it.  A family friend barbecued, we had ribs, pulled pork and chicken.  Then our moms and aunts made a bunch of different kinds of salads.  Our cake was made by one of my bridesmaids, and my mother-in-law and aunt made about 20 pies.  Then my mom also made cookies and brownies.  It was over the top!

What’s your favorite picture from your wedding? 
I love all of our pictures, and it's hard not to choose one of Kevin at the alter or our first dance.  Part of dreaming about my wedding has always been the daddy/daughter dance and my dad giving me away.  I felt like I was a little girl again.  I think this picture captures the emotion perfectly.

Knowing what you know now, is there any advice you would give to future brides? 
It is never too early to start planning, or to get started on projects.  I thought I had all the time in the world with a year and a half to plan, but it goes by fast and you want to enjoy the days leading up to the wedding.  Also, as everyone says, the day is a complete blur, take that time to enjoy yourself and your new husband.  Don't stress the little details that people won't ever notice.

Honey Horn Plantation Wedding {Jennifer + Rob}

So, I've been waiting for quite awhile to share Jennifer + Rob's Honey Horn Plantation Wedding.  From the moment I first saw these images I couldn't stop gushing over this color palette...and can you blame me?  Those bouquets are ridiculous!  The fabulous Jenny Evelyn was on hand to capture the gorgeous bride and her dapper groom tie the knot at this perfect Lowcountry Wedding.  I'm so in love with this wedding that I just had to know more, so I asked Jennifer to fill us in on some additional details about their big day...
So give us a little background on you and Rob...
I first met Rob at a church I visited with a few of my friends. We all went out for lunch after the service and he sat beside me. We had casual conversation at that point, but I had no idea he was even interested in me. I remember he was in a hurry to leave when we finished lunch because he was looking forward to watching a Clemson basketball game! We didn’t keep in touch until we became friends on Facebook. We began chatting and exchanged numbers after some time. He claims he asked me out to dinner while we were chatting on Facebook, but I didn’t think it was very obvious and I turned him down! Thankfully, he pursued me and eventually called me to ask me out for our first date.

Tell us about the proposal...
Rob planned the best proposal ever on December 19, 2009! He sent a package to my apartment filled with a beautiful dress and fancy shoes. The package also contained a letter telling me that I was in for an evening I wouldn’t forget! He explained that I was not to contact him and that someone would be there at 3:45 sharp to pick me up. Well, as I am reading this letter, I panicked because I hadn’t showered and it was already 2:45. Rob’s best friend picked me up promptly at 3:45 and handed me another letter that gave me clues to our first destination.  We stopped at three places and, at each place; a note was waiting for me. Each one was romantically written, rhymed, and reminiscent of our relationship and the experiences we’ve had together. At the final location, Rob was waiting for me on the beach. He read the final letter and it was then and there that he asked me to be his wife. Obviously, I said yes! The surprises didn’t stop there – we picked up my dad from the airport then met the rest of our family and friends for dinner to celebrate!

Why did you choose to have A Lowcountry Wedding?
We chose to have a lowcountry wedding because we live here – it’s where we met, where began our relationship and we share so many memories here.  Hilton Head Island also offers beautiful scenery for a wedding.
a lowcountry wedding blog showcasing daily charleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings, southern weddings, charleston wedding blogs, hilton head wedding blogs, myrtle beach wedding blogs
Out of the entire day, what was the most memorable moment?
The most memorable moment was the first time I saw Rob as I walked down the aisle with my dad. I couldn’t stop smiling! I also loved walking back down the aisle with Rob after we had been declared husband and wife!
Rob would say his favorite moment was the same and add that he loved the sound of the bagpipes playing as I walked toward him. The bagpiper was a surprise from me to him!

So, how did Honey Horn Plantation win you over?

We attended a wedding there together about a year before our wedding and it was extremely beautiful and very practical for a wedding. The large oak trees, the Spanish moss, the palm trees, and the dock by the water offered all the scenery you expect in the lowcountry. We also liked the ability to have the ceremony, social hour, and reception all in the same place but at different locations within walking distance on the plantation.

Tell us a little bit about your menu...

Our menu was all Lowcountry – pulled pork and chicken barbecue, macaroni and cheese, potatoes, green beans, salad, fruit and served sweet tea, lemonade, and water in small mason jars.

One of my favorite questions to ask brides is what was their favorite ________.  I especially like to know, out of all their gorgeous photographs, which takes the cake.  Obviously, you can tell Jennifer had plenty of gorgeous options thanks to Jenny Evelyn Photography but below was her ultimate favorite....don't you agree?

Looking back on your engagement and wedding, is there any advice you would give to brides in the planning process? 
My advice would be:
  1. If you have a budget, do your absolute best to stick to it. Work backwards starting with how many people you are going to have attend the wedding.
  2. Enjoy the wedding and the wedding planning process – do your best not to get caught up on every little detail, especially as the wedding day gets closer.
  3. Remember this is your day as a couple – you cannot please everybody!
  4. The most important advice is to keep your focus on the marriage and commitment you are about to make instead of just the planning of one day.

Purple + Turquoise

I love this color palette and have always thought you need to be a little cautious with it for a wedding and not go overboard...but I think we might have nailed it with this inspiration board.  Don't you just love the tablescape in the bottom left corner?  I like how the farm table gives it a more laid back vibe and you just can't beat those vivid, beautiful centerpieces.  Um, excuse me Cameron Diaz? Can you please give me that entire ensemble? I'm crazy about her necklace and that killer dress.  Perfect Summer color combo...
