Every Tuesday at A Lowcountry Wedding is all about the wedding details..and who doesn’t love that?! I just have to share some of my gorgeous finds to give you loads of ideas for your big day and today we’re talking ALL about the ceremony details. I’ve rounded up some of the most eye-catching ceremony locations and decor that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing Some are decked out with lavish chandeliers and draped with swanky fabric, that we just can’t get enough of, and others are more classic and simple and let the natural setting do all the talking. Even though each ceremony backdrop varies greatly to the next, they’re all jaw dropping-ly beautiful…don’t you agree?
