We’re cooking up another crazy week here on the A Lowcountry Wedding blog and we’re hoping all of you beautiful Southern belles are ready to revel in the fabulousness of this adorable Charleston wedding from Lindsey A. Miller Photography and a crazy, talented crew of Charleston wedding vendors. The perfect Southern fete took place at one of our favorite Charleston wedding venues, Harborside East. Nestled at the foot of the Cooper River Bridge, this one-of-a-kind venue offered breathtaking views for Casey + Allen’s outdoor ceremony and relaxing, Spring evening. The crew at MOD Events incorporated sweetgrass bouquets and boutonnieres, burlap accented centerpieces, delicious Lowcountry cuisine from Jim-N-Nick’s BBQ, and classic signature cocktails for a truly magical, Charleston wedding.
I told you it was going to be a good blog week around here at A Lowcountry Wedding and to keep the pattern going I’ve got a charming Charleston wedding from our friend Britt Croft Photography. I feel in love with this wedding the moment I laid eyes on it. Not only was it the perfect Spring day in Charleston, but the couple looked timeless. Bride Nicole was a classic, beauty in her knee-length gown and her man looked handsome in his Navy uniform. I’ll let Britt take it from here…
“Nicole and Rees arranged a very sweet and simple elopement for only their most beloved friends and family this past March. Since Rees is in the Navy and stationed in Charleston, and Nicole was living in Florida at the time, they were more than ready to begin their lives together and finally be able to live in the same city. I was honored they hired me for such an intimate day. Their ceremony took place on one of the beautiful outside porches of the quaint Phillip-Yates-Snowden Bed & Breakfast on Church Street in Charleston, then afterward we were able to stroll the cobblestone streets where passersby wished the newlyweds congratulations. We then made our way toward Waterfront Park, then back to the Battery and it was such a blast as Nicole and Rees sunk into the fact that they were finally husband and wife.”
If the Lowcountry knows how to do one thing right, it’s how to have a good time and, of course, that good-natured spirit always spills over to our weddings! We love good Southern cookin’, a salty coastal breeze and a stiff, fruity cocktail I regularly get asked about fun, new specialty drinks that everyone will enjoy. Well, I ran across this guide to champagne cocktails and thought it would be very fitting for some of our Lowcountry brides. Not only would they be perfect for a Charleston wedding, but could hit the nail on the head for a bridal shower, bridesmaids luncheon…or a Tuesday night Enjoy!
The South Carolina coastline has this mystical quality about it that, let’s be honest, holds the key to all of our hearts. One of our favorite coastal spots for stunning, Lowcountry wedding imagery, is the dreamy, coastal town of Edisto Island, just an hour south of Charleston. Thanks to lenses of Sarah C Photography, today we get to share Ali + Josh’s whimsical, Just Married session along the shores of Edisto. The afternoon started with an abundance of romantic, Spanish moss at Trinity Episcopal Church of Edisto before heading to beach to finish up at sunset. Talk about Lowcountry heaven, right?
I sure do wish my good friend Pinterest was around when I was planning my Lowcountry wedding. I always felt like I could never drool over enough wedding inspiration (which may have just started my blogging obsession…who knows!), particularly some swoon-worthy bouquets. I’ve rounded up a few fabulous Summer bouquets that might be fitting for your big Southern wedding. They range from airy and whimsical to structured and sassy. Hopefully, one will be exactly what your Charleston wedding has been looking for…

We just love when Chris Isham’s camera graces a Southern wedding with it’s presence. This time, the South Carolina based photographer headed to Augusta, Georgia to capture Ashley + Brian’s darling, April affair at the Marbury Center. Ashley dazzled in a structured gown that she accessorized with a whimsical flower in her hair, while the men sported blue suits and assorted ties to compliment the vintage blue and yellow color palette.
Go ahead and prepare yourself for some serious Charleston wedding fabulousness today. Coming to us from the Myrtle Beach wedding design team of Stunning & Brilliant Events, you are going to swoon over every detail of Dannon + Josh’s dreamy, Downtown wedding. Dannon has got some serious style, starting with her form fitting gown, striking birdcage veil and impressive DIY decor. The couple said ‘I do’ in a traditional ceremony at the historic St. John the Baptist Cathedral, off Broad Street, before heading to Waterfront Park with photographer Callie Frances Alexander to capture some timeless, newlywed portraits. They continued the evening at McCrady’s where they dazzled their guests with exquisite Lowcountry cuisine, a stunning cake designed by Declare Cakes, and a whole lot of celebrating!
