Good evening to all of our Lowcountry Ladies! Just in case you missed it yesterday, we shared some huge news! Along with the help of some crazy, talented vendors, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is giving (yes, I said GIVING!) away a fabulous Charleston wedding! So, check out all the details here and make sure to get crackin’ on your video.
It’s no secret there are wayyyy to many decisions that need to be made while planning your wedding and while this topic may not apply to everyone, many stylish brides are in need of a little inspiration on how to jazz up your wedding ceremony and/or reception chairs. Well, per usual, we’ve got you covered and I’m positive you’ll be over-the-moon with the oodles of seating decor you’ll find below.
You’ve got to admit that our Lowcountry brides have an impeccably elegant Southern style…I think they’re just born with it So it’s no surprise they make sure their maids are dressed to the nines, as well. They keep it sophisticated with a sweet pastel color palette for a classic plantation reception or they’ll spice it up with bright, trendy patterns for an oceanside, Myrtle Beach affair. They’ll dress their Lowcountry gals in flowy, long gowns that are perfect for a relaxed Hilton Head wedding or they’ll keep it short with a sassy cocktail dress fitting of a Downtown Charleston soiree. Bottom line, stick with your oh-so-fabulous taste when choosing your bridesmaids dresses, I promise they’ll thank you for it later!

I will tell you what…I love seeing the little ones all dolled up as they stroll down the aisle, introducing their beautiful bride. They’re so sweet and innocent and always look adorable which is why the flower girls and ring bearers attire is so clutch. Recently, I’ve spotted some seriously precious outfits that I just had to share with yall. P.S. I think I’ve developed a serious tutu obsession. Don’t even play, you know they’re darling!
Oh yes, Stephen Gosling has done it again with this irresistible Southern wedding he shot this past September in the beautiful state of Virginia. The couple, Sarah + Tyler, went with a natural color palette that complimented their outdoor, rustic setting. Sarah looked like a sweet Southern Belle in her dainty strapless gown while Tyler looked handsome in his classic black tuxedo. While I may have been drooling over the simple, yet stunning, decor in this wedding, I’m really in love with the images of the couple. The weather and sunlight was perfect and I don’t think they could have asked for a more beautiful backdrop. Can we say frame-able!?
I’ve been soaking up loads of wedding inspiration today and thought who better to share the fruits of my labor with then my favorite Lowcountry brides and I have a sneaky suspicion you won’t be disappointed. While I’ll always love a gorgeous Fall or Winter wedding, truth be told, I’m more of a Spring/Summer gal…and I think it has a lot to do with the seasonal blooms. It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Pinterest and over the past few weeks it’s provided me with a wealth of soft Spring and Summer bouquets that I couldn’t wait to share with you!

Tuesday is always ‘detail day’ around A Lowcountry Wedding and rather than jumping right into our normal post, I thought we’d mix it up a little bit and share a Nashville affair that’s just as sweet as pie! Ashley + Quinn were wed in an intimate, outdoor ceremony atop the soft, rolling hills of Music’s City’s most sought after wedding venue, Front Porch Farms (Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood got married there this past weekend!) and Wedlock Images was there to capture it all! This antebellum house and its picturesque scenery was the perfect backdrop for this Spring-y Southern soiree. What I love most is Ashley’s exquisite attention to detail on a small budget. She tackled the bouquets, centerpieces, homemade sweets and jams and, even designed and constructed her bridesmaids’ dresses! Impressive, eh? As you can imagine, the combination of the one-of-a-kind venue, the fabulous details and Mrs. J’s Baking and Catering the guests were raving and craving for more!
Oh, my! Never before have I wanted to don gorgeous red locks so badly until I laid my eyes on this garden themed inspiration shoot from Chris Cornwell Photography. This natural shoot is full of wedding day inspiration and includes a soft, whimsical color palette of blush pink and creams with an irresistible vintage ease. So, as I pick my jaw up off the ground, please feel free to get your swoon on with these stunning images…
