While I tend to be a big fan of flip flops, I sure do love a good pair of heels…especially with a wedding dress. I’m not sure what it is but when you throw on a fun pair of heels it automatically gives you a little sass in your step. So, I’ve rounded up a few of my favs to spark a little inspiration in your wedding day attire. I’ve got dainty and neutral to swanky and colorful. I’ve got buttons and bows, ruffles and sparkles…a little something for everyone!
It’s no secret that mint is this wedding season’s ‘it’ color and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve always loved how this soft, sweet color pairs well with any Springtime pastel shade. If you’re planning a timeless, dainty affair then make sure to check out our darling round up of the perfect ways to keep your wedding minty fresh!
It’s no secret that I’m a little obsessed with Pinterest and once a week I like to share some of my favorite finds with all of you beautiful Lowcountry brides! We’re pretty blessed with a slew of talented hair designers who regularly create soft, elegant wedding do’s that are always very fitting of our brides and with all the buzz around Charleston Fashion Week, I can’t help but daydream about all the stunning hairstyles we’ll see this Saturday at the Charleston Bridal Show. So to prepare everyone for what’s to come this weekend, have fun drooling over this fabulous round up!
My inbox has been dripping with Lowcountry wedding fabulousness, and I’ll tell you what…this girl is not complaining! South Carolina photographer, Angela Cox, sent over this knockout and I couldn’t wait to share these stunning images and darling DIY details. Meredith + Keith tied the knot in the laid back town of Beaufort this past Fall under dreamy Oak trees in Meredith’s parent’s backyard. Meredith’s girls were dressed in gorgeous green Dessy dresses that they complimented with vibrant bouquets. All the maids arranged their own bouquets and the Bride’s aunt tackled the boys boutonnieres….pretty impressive, huh? After the ceremony they moved into the Lucy Creek Dock house where guests were treated with Lowcountry cuisine from Wren’s, grandma’s pound cake and tunes from A Sound Celebration!

I think it’s the warm weather, or maybe it’s the fact I tend to get lost in a sea of Pinterest pinning amazing one-of-a-kind centerpieces like a crazy person. Either way, now that Spring wedding season is upon us, I just had to share some of these beauties with yall. Some are pretty simple, sticking to one single element (baby’s breathe, tulips) while others are stunningly ornate. You’ll see a gorgeous array of colors, some more vibrant and others in muted spring tones. Oh, and of course we couldn’t post all of these heavenly blooms without including a few stunners from some of our favorite Lowcountry wedding vendors, (Charleston based Ooh! Events and Branch Design Studios), that will completely knock your socks off. Per usual

The weather’s perfect, the flowers are starting to bloom and Spring is un-officially here! You know what that means…wedding season is right around the corner!! To help get us in the mood, our friends over at Scott Hopkins Photography are sharing Kam + Jason’s beautiful Lowcountry wedding at Hilton Head’s Windows on the Waterway. Kam looked stunning in a strapless gown that she paired with a flirty pink bouquet designed by A Floral Affair while her maids rocked darling pink dresses. The couple tied the knot in a laid back outdoor ceremony that overlooked the Intracostal waterway. After saying ‘I do,’ the newlyweds and their guests moved the party to Windows on the Waterway where the talented team from Celebrations Catering & Events treated guests to an array of Southern cuisine and Signe’s supplied the tasty cupcakes. Jojo Squirrel and the Home Pickles kept everyone up and dancing til late in the evening!
