Anna & Vinny's McCradys Wedding in Charleston, SC with a St. Mary's ceremony and pre-ceremony at the Palmer Home by Lowcountry vendors Reese Moore Photography, The Burlap Elephant and Tiger Lily Weddings.
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.

I interned for Spoleto Festival one summer (years ago!), so when Reese Moore Wedding Photography shot over this jaw-dropper, I think I squealed. The Spoleto Festival Headquarters is located in Downtown Charleston on 14 George Street and as you can see, the building is just magnificent. Now, pair one-heck of a backdrop with a crazy cast of Charleston wedding vendors and you get this lavish lace inspiration shoot designed by Fabulous Fete. The beautiful model was outfitted in a dreamy Kira Elizabeth original that was complemented with delicate flowers from WildFlowers Inc., an elegant cake from Elaine's Event and stunning stationery from Open House. Go ahead, get your pin on!
A group of talented Charleston wedding vendors recently teamed up for a chic, plum inspired shoot overlooking the Cooper River Bridge, and the images from Reese Moore Photography will leave you weak-in-the-knees! The purple perfection took place at one of our favorite Charleston wedding venues, Harborside East, and allowed for a picturesque, backdrop of the Charleston Harbor. The ladies of Fabulous Fete were the masterminds behind the whole design. They dreamed up a plum evening with ombre touches complete with a modern cake from The Cake Stand, sleek sequined pillows in varying shades of purple and orchids, lots of dreamy orchids!

If you're considering an intimate setting for your Charleston wedding, you'll love Brigid + Drew's Lowcountry affair from Charleston wedding vendor, Reese Moore Photography. Thanks to Reese for giving us all the details... "Stunning bride Brigid and husband-to-be Drew wanted a small, intimate, elegant fete for their wedding, so the two found a beautiful private home with an epic view of Sullivan's Island for their big day. They welcomed guests with eco-friendly, signature glasses from Mr. B's Sustainable Glassworks, and the couple wed on the porch overlooking the sweeping views of the beach. Brigid cried tears of joy throughout the ceremony... as did every other person there. Literally not a dry eye in the place! Then, after some photos on the beach, it was time for an elegant 3 course dinner on a long table decked with burlap, mason jars, candles, tulips, and low green and white center pieces. Brigid and Drew did their first dance on the deck and sunset, the perfect ending to a perfect day!"
