Carolyn & Simmons’ River Course wedding on Kiawah Island South Carolina by Virgil Bunao Photography and Boutique Planning with a pink, cream and gold color palette.
You probably remember the amazing amelia + dan, a Charleston wedding photography team based in Charleston, from Katie + Frank's William Aiken wedding that we featured in the Fall issue of A Lowcountry Wedding Magazine. It was gorgeous to put it mildly. They recently teamed up with the talented Luke Wilson of WED and Sara York Grimshaw Designs for a Lowndes Grove wedding that is sure to set your Lowcountry hearts a-flutter!

I count my lucky wedding blogging stars each and every day for the opportunity to share such a special time in a couple's life. I love every moment of it. The details, the back story and the emotional shots...all of it, and Katrina + Paul's Planters Inn wedding delivered every aspect of it. Thanks to Riverland Studios for capturing all the moments!
Tell us about the details! Did any have special meaning? What was your favorite? We love to be tourists in our own town and have always been drawn to spending our day or night dates wandering Market Street. We loved the idea of getting married in the same area that we always pick for our date nights! We enjoy being able to go right back to our wedding spot whenever we want.

It's no secret that all of us love a good Lowcountry wedding, and when a handful of talented Charleston wedding vendors are involved, it makes it that much sweeter! Richard Bell Photography was behind the lens as Lane + Michael said 'I do' on the lawns of Dunes West Golf Club. Ashley Nicole Events was on hand to handle all of the details, while Sara York Grimshaw Designs set the mood with her stunning florals. Thanks to Lane for giving us a little insight into her fabulous Charleston wedding... A. When Michael and I began planning our wedding, we didn't really have a clue of what we wanted...but what we DID know was that we wanted it to be a "southern style" wedding that would make all of our guest feel "at home" and leave Dunes West having a great meal and enjoy dancing to some classic hits! Most of our guest were from Georgia and South Carolina and LOVE southern, family traditions. Pulled Pork/Collard Green Eggrolls and Sweet Tea...can't get much more southern than that! As a little girl I can remember my grandparents would ALWAYS drink tea out of mason jars and also store jams. This family tradition, along with Pinterest, gave us this unique idea. Pinterest has been an AMAZING resource for wedding planning! We decided to go with blues and coral/orange color scheme. Michael LOVES Clemson football and bowties...so we "tied" those two together! One last REALLY cool thing we did is a "Late Night Donut" stand with shot glasses of milk! We felt that our guest would enjoy this yummy surprise after dancing all night!
