Lowcountry Bridal Session from sMm Photography

When the talented Stefanie of sMm Photography sent over this dreamy South Carolina session drenched in natural light, I knew it had to grace the pages of A Lowcountry Wedding.  I mean, who doesn't love when a bride-to-be includes her beloved animal?  But when I read the sweet story, I fell even more in love (if that's even possible!).  The lovely Kate rescued her sweet horse Penny right before her wedding in June but wanted to wait to do her bridal portraits until she had time to rehabilitate her, and we're so glad she did!

William Aiken House Wedding {Sarah + Steven}

This weekend was kind of epic.  Not only did the weather finally shape up, but we had the honor of attending the 1st Draft a Celebrity Tournament at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course.  It was a BLAST, and we may have even met Bill Murray!  So, as we attempt to leave the weekend behind and dive into Monday morning, we have a feeling this lovely William Aiken House wedding will be just what the doctor order to slap a smile on your face.   Sarah + Steven's romantic Fall bash was dressed up with beautiful white flowers and dusty millers from the talented ladies of Out of HandFish treated guests to delicious cuisine while Cupcake topped things of with tasty treats.  Thanks to White Wave Photography for capturing all the details! charleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

Charleston Wedding {Tiffany + Jeremiah}

After a Saturday full of wind and rain, I think we all deserve to be spoiled with a lovely dose of Charleston weddings, wouldn't you say?  We're starting with a Lowcountry beauty from Tomme Hilton Gallery that I knew I had to share the minute I laid eyes on it.  Tiffany + Jeremiah have been together for 10 yrs and finally, after adding 3 little ones to their growing family,  they decided to make it official.  They planned a beautiful fall evening on Wadmalaw Island and it was just what the doctor ordered.  Tiffany's glow initially caught my eye.  She glowed in a strapless gown she paired with a chunky mint necklace and a pale pink hair piece.  Jeremiah kept things casual in a vibrant pink polo and jeans while their boys wore pale pink polos.  Tiffany's carried the perfect rustic bouquet filled with white hydrangeas, pink roses, greenery and berries.

Charleston Wedding {Erin + Steve} The Island House

I went weak-in-the-knees for every single Lowcountry wedding that has graced the pages of our premier issue!  They're all stunning!  But I have a special place in my heart for Erin + Steve's Island House bash.  I'm not sure if it's how their amazing photographer Virgil Bunao captured all the details, or maybe  how Ooh! Events dreamed up this eclectic color palette with eye catching flower arrangements, or what sounds like the perfect menu of libations and Southern dishes from Cru Catering that the duo treated their guests to, but I adore every last detail of this Charleston wedding.  Thanks to Erin and her talented mother for adding all the personal touches to their big Southern wedding day!  Even though we tried, we couldn’t include everything in the magazine, so to find out a little more about Erin’s big day you can read her answers below, but to see ALL the details check out the Mag here! charleston weddingsHow did he propose? How long were you engaged for?

I think I may have the best proposal story ever.  In August 2011, we'd planned to spend a weeklong vacation with Steve's parents in New Hampshire.  The night before we were supposed to leave, Steve handed me a piece of paper.  It took me a minute to realize that it was an itinerary for a surprise trip to Madrid - leaving the next day!!  He'd planned everything - and had even done my laundry so I would have plenty of clothes for the trip!  During our first day in Madrid, we roamed around the city and even went back to the place where we had our first kiss.  The next day, he took me a private Spanish cooking class, and then to the Retiro park.  He proposed in the park, and then told me we were going to spend the rest of the week on an engagement-moon in the Basque Country!  It was like a dream.

charleston weddings

What made you choose your Charleston wedding venue? What elements drew you to it?

I grew up in Chesterfield, SC and Steve is from New York, but we currently live in San Francisco.  We knew we wanted to get married in South Carolina as a nod to my childhood, and we chose Charleston because we'd traveled there together and made some amazing memories.  We looked at a ton of venues, and we really wanted to find a place that celebrated the natural beauty of the lowcountry.  When we saw the Island House for the first time, we both knew it was where we wanted to get married.  The proximity to the water, the wide open outdoor space, and the simple beauty of it all took our breath away.

charleston weddings

Specialty Drinks?

Steve and I are cocktail aficionados, and the team at IceBox exceeded all our expectations (plus they let us do a really fun cocktail tasting ahead of time!).   Our specialty cocktails were: Holiday in Spain (nod to our engagement and where we met - it was a jalapeno and cilantro margarita with macerated red peppers for a reddish tint) and the Johns Island Cider (Rum, Spiced Apple Cider, Mint, Ginger Beer).

charleston weddingscharleston weddingscharleston weddingscharleston weddingscharleston weddings

What’s your favorite picture from your wedding and why?

That's really tough - mainly because Virgil is incredible.  There's a picture of Steve and me holding hands out on the dock that I really adore, and then a party shot with us in front and all our friends behind us rocking out (and wearing neon glasses!).

charleston weddingscharleston weddings

Tell us all about the details! Did any have special meaning? What was your favorite?

-My mother handmade a lot of my favorite details from the wedding - homemade peach bourbon jam for the wedding favors, travel-themed placecards, and homemade pralines and benne wafers for our welcome bags.  She worked so hard on everything, and it was so beautiful (and delicious!) so her creations were some of my favorite details.

-I really loved using table names instead of numbers.  Steve and I love to travel, so I used chalkboard signs to write the names of places Steve and I have traveled together.  People really got a kick out of sitting at the Reykjavik, Iceland or Zanzibar, Tanzania table

-The brooch that I pinned to my bouquet was particularly special to me.  It's from a set of jewelry made by Tiffany's in the 1800s as a replica of the jewelry designed by Abraham Lincoln for Mary Todd to wear on her wedding day.  I was the 5th generation in my family to wear this jewelry on my wedding day.

charleston weddings

Tell us a little bit about your Charleston wedding menu…We are obsessed with good food, and Cru Catering made the wedding dinner of our dreams.  For appetizers, we had a yellow tomato gazpacho shooter with habanero crema, collard green wontons, and a raw bar.  We served a tomato and muskmelon salad with candied pecans, and a choice of ginger seared wreck fish or pomegranate glazed cornish hen.  Objectively (or maybe not), this was one of the best meals of my life.

charleston weddings

We did wedding pies instead of a wedding cake, and I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out!  Lauren from Wild Flour Pastry blew us away with bourbon pecan pie, key lime pie with gingersnap crust, walnut derby pie, triple berry pie with oat streusel, and a banoffee (banana-toffee) pie!  I heard that one older lady went back to the pie table five times to try all the varieties!

Something old: The family heirloom brooch I put on my bouquet.

Something new: My parents gave me diamond earrings, and my gorgeous Badgley Mischka shoes!!

Something borrowed: A sapphire and diamond bracelet from my grandmother

Something blue:  Lots!  My sapphire engagement ring and the sapphire/diamond necklace Steve gave me as a wedding day present.

Heritage Plantation Wedding {Robyn + Andy}

It totally slipped my mind that yesterday was Veterans’ Day (which might explain why I showed up at the County Treasurer’s Office to pay my car taxes and no one was there.  Whoopsies!).  Had I remembered, I absolutely would have shared Robyn + Andy’s quaint Heritage Plantation wedding from Dana Cubbage Wedding Photography but instead, we’ll just share it today! Since the lovely Dana Cubbage was there to capture all the details, it’s only fitting we let her tell their love story… ”Andy is in the Air Force and based in Louisiana, while Robyn lives and works in Missouri. These two have spent so much time apart, but their love for each other - and Robyn's 10 year old son, Drake - is evident. One of my absolute favorite moments of their day was immediately after the ceremony, Drake came up and hugged both Robyn + Andy.  It was an extremely special moment.

Robyn planned the entire wedding herself. She even did her own hair and created her own bouquet! Talk about talented! She chose Heritage Golf Club after seeing photos of it online. She absolutely fell in love with the location, the large oaks, the marina, and the Spanish Moss. Oh, the Spanish Moss! Although it rained in the morning, the skies cleared in time for their outdoor ceremony beneath an oak tree. We couldn't have asked for better weather, and the sunset at the marina was stunning. Robyn, Andy + their guests released wish lanterns from the dock at the end of the evening. Although the wind made it tricky, they were able to successfully launch a few. It was a beautiful sight and onlookers cheered as they took flight.”

McCrady's Wedding {Tiffany + Preston}

Bride Tiffany is just adorable.  She was the epitome of a Southern Belle as she strolled down the aisle in her pearls, perfect smile and  big, beautiful ballgown where she met her husband, Preston, to say "I do".  Tiffany's bridesmaids donned navy dresses, nude heels and light pink bouquets of roses while the gentlemen were dressed in grey.  After an intimate, outdoor ceremony, the couple made their way over to McCrady's for a lovely reception with their closest friends and family members.  Thanks to CM Photography for capturing their beautiful Charleston Wedding day!

Society Hall Wedding {Jenn + Stewart}

Normally, I try to set the tone for a charming Charleston wedding, but I think it sounds better coming from today's beautiful Bride Jenn.  So, I hope everyone has a lovely Lowcountry weekend and until we get there, let's kick off this Friday morning with a gorgeous Society Hall wedding from the fab photography team at Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay...
From the bride:Why Charleston? Well aside from the obvious answers – we love the city, my family is there, it is easy to get to – we thought, and have always thought, that Charleston embodies in one place the things we hold dear, the things we have in common, and the way we want our lives together to be. Elegant and deeply Southern, with just a hint of adorable quirkiness and cool vibes; passionate about history and heritage while always striving to move forward; wonderful food and shopping wrapped in a gracious welcome – this is Charleston for us. So it was the perfect place to have what we ultimately wanted – am intimate, traditional affair that highlighted our beloved South, family and friends.We are both very traditional romantics.

As such, we knew we wanted all of the elements of a traditional wedding (church ceremony, music and dress, reception), but we also wanted to imbibe it with our personality. Hence the bagpipes for the processional…I am very Irish on "one side!" We are both what people call "old souls" who long for the elegance and glamour of a different age, and we are both very proud of our Southern heritage. We love being Southern, and since most of our guest list was from parts outside the South, we wanted our guests to feel the warmth and hospitality at every turn. So we kept things formal, but chose a buffet style reception to keep the feel of being invited to a big party.

 I think at one point I explained it to the caterer as "black tie meets Sunday supper," or something of the sort. Our old souls took the music from jazz during the cocktail hour to Motown for the dance party. White tablecloths, silver candle sticks (all collected on Etsy or "borrowed" from family collections), southern flowers (hydrangeas, roses, gardenia, magnolias) and a buffet highlighting barbecue, shrimp and grits, biscuits, she crab soup, and fried green tomatoes combined with the stately elegance of Society Hall to create the exact vibe we were hoping for.

From the open house cocktail party on Thursday to the gentlemen's skeet shoot and ladies luncheon (complete with sundresses and hats) to the seafood rehearsal dinner to the signature cocktail (with Firefly vodka), to the last song, to the farewell brunch, our guests were welcomed into our comfort zone with all the Southern elegance and hospitality we, and Charleston, could muster.

All good things come to those who wait, it seems. We've known each other for 22 years. We had one disastrous date in 1993, but decided the timing was bad. Through businesses, career changes, other relationships, tragedies, and everything else you could throw at someone in life, we stayed friends. Best friends. And then one day, when all the debris clears, you look around and realize that  the person you want to be with forever is the person who has always been there for you...that the "forever" you'd always imagined is waiting there for you with someone you've known "forever" already...that true love isn't always found down the road you have been on, but it is exactly what you have. And you want to keep it in your heart and by your side.

701 Whaley Wedding {Brennan + Travis}

Y’all, I am so thrilled to tell you guys we’re just weeks away from launching our first EVER A Lowcountry Wedding Lookbook….and it is awesome.  It’s been a complete labor of love and while it's taken a little longer to finish up than expected, it has been so much fun to create, super crazy and difficult, and, at times, has made me want to throw in the towel, but it’s finally in the last stages and I can’t wait until we get to share it.  There are pages and pages of AMAZING Lowcountry weddings from the most-sought after vendors along the Carolina coast and it will have you ooohhhhing and aaahhhing the whole way through!  In the meantime, we thought we would hold you over with this beauty from the Capitol City captured by Richard Ellis Photography at 701 Whaley.    We're in love with all of these beautiful pops of purple!

Daniel Island Club {Mandy + Greg}

I went to the University of Georgia, so I've got a soft spot in my heart for the color red (actually, I'm obsessed.).  It's such a sassy color and, at times, it can be difficult to properly integrate into your wedding color palette, but I'll tell you what, Bride Mandy nailed it as she gave it a chic, Lowcountry flair!  Mandy looked STUNNING in a fitted mermaid gown, while her gals rocked fabulous, one-shoulder red dresses.  The couple wed on lawn of the Daniel Island Club before enjoying a lovely evening with family and friends.  Thanks to Bri McDaniel Photography for capturing this amazing Charleston wedding! charleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddingscharleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings

The couple lives in DC and wanted an intimate southern destination wedding, and Lord knows that's exactly what they got when they ventured to the Lowcountry! The overall vibe was natural, beautiful and elegant. Margaret was breathtaking in a stunning Vera Wang wedding gown and gold sparkly Kate Spade flats. She carried loose stems of white and yellow seasonal flowers with a pop of pink. The ceremony was lined with tin bails of sweet baby's breath flowers. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the cocktail hour on custom built wooden tables draped with lace and beautiful flowers.

For the reception, Margaret & Jesus joined their guests in a large tent draped with cafe lighting and enjoyed local southern flair foods and seafood paella. The couple loves hot sauce so, naturally, they had to have a hot sauce bar. The Tao Reed band played well into the night. Everyone lit paper lanterns in the end and were whisked away in a vintage green car.  It was an celebration with impeccable style in a natural and elegant setting and we're so glad Donna Von Bruening was there to capture all the details!

Day After Session {Brooke + Brad}

Southern Weddings {Everything Mini}

I just adore everything mini! As much as I love an elaborate 5 course dinner, I am loving the small plate trend in weddings. Mini tacos and margaritas, grilled cheese and tomato soup, or a cookie with milk, you get a little bit of everything and still have enough room to dance! Not to mention the presentation is adorable! I keep finding myself looking at the same pictures over and over so I had to share! charleston weddings

South Carolina Wedding {Sarah + Matt}

Sarah + Matt's beautiful Southern wedding took place in Salem, South Carolina at the Reserve at Lake Keowee and was, to say the least, stunning.   With the help of Katie Crain Weddings, the couple were able to bring their formal black and white color palette to life as their guests were treated to a lovely evening under the stars.  The long tables were dressed with burlap runners, tons of candlelight and small bud vases of white flowers.  Thanks to Liv Collins Photography for capturing all the details! south carolina weddngssouth carolina wedding dressessouth carolina wedding vendorswedding blogsmatt and sarah's salem south carolina weddingsouthern wedding programssouthern weddingssouthern wedding blogsliv collins photographycotton rogue make up artist
