At each venue, brides (and grooms!) will have the opportunity to enjoy jaw dropping tablescapes, luscious florals, gowns, cakes, linens, decor and more! At the end of the day, everyone will return to the Harbor Resort to mix and mingle with the creative brains behind the afternoon while enjoying cocktails, dancing, hors d'oeuvres and desserts. Oh, and did I mention there will be giveaway! Lots and lots of giveaways!

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.

Thanks to good ol’ Tropical Storm Andrea, most of us will be locked up inside today, so we decided it was time for some Charleston weddings, especially a vintage-inspired bash with an eclectic color scheme was just what the doctor order! The sweet couple, Sarah & Ryan, met through mutual friends and within a week knew they had just met the person they were going to marry. They are both thankful for their supportive families and said, “Neither of us have very impulsive personalities, and I think they could tell that it was different than anything we had experienced before.” Ryan proposed to Sarah just five months later while floating in a canoe in a lake full of candles. How Can you say romantic? Their outdoor ceremony took place at Hampton Park before heading over to Upstairs at Midtown to celebrate. Thanks to Priscilla of Riverland Studios for capturing all the lovely details!
