We’ve got a big week on the horizon at A Lowcountry Wedding! For starters, we’ll be teaming up with a crew of crazy, talented Charleston wedding vendors for a nautical-inspired shoot at the South Carolina Aquarium that is going to knock. your. socks. off. On Thursday, you’ll find us at The NotWedding with some of South Carolina’s finest wedding vendors as we treat Lowcountry brides to an evening full of inspiration at the beautiful Rice Mill Building, but in the meantime, Blake is showering you with some easy, yet impactful, do-it-yourself centerpieces.
I just love the idea of using vintage bottles as flower centerpieces. You can use different sizes, shapes, and colors. There are so many things you can do with them and they just look so cute!
If you want to add a pop of color you can do it yourself! All you have to do is pour paint on the inside of the vase and swirl around to coat. So easy!
If Kelly Sauer is involved, then you know you’re about to get your pretty on, and if this isn’t pretty then I just don’t know what else is. The bride, Kelly, is strikingly beautiful, effortlessly gorgeous and such a natural in front of the camera that you can’t stop starring at these images. It was so hard to narrow down my favorites! I can only assume she is any photographer’s dream! With her hair swept off her face, she donned a classic Anne Barge gown that was paired with a matching necklace and earrings. All I can say is Kelly Sauer sure does have a knack for capturing loveliness.
Let me tell you what, I’m super obsessed with throwing in a pattern or two into your wedding day decor. It’s modern and stylish and brings a bit of sass to your Southern wedding reception. Since we’re all about the Pinterest around here, we’ve been collecting mounds of pattern inspiration and it’s time we share the loveliness. Whether it’s stripes, polka dots or even a little chevron, a touch of print makes a huge impact. So ladies, which one’s your fav?
I interned for Spoleto Festival one summer (years ago!), so when Reese Moore Wedding Photography shot over this jaw-dropper, I think I squealed. The Spoleto Festival Headquarters is located in Downtown Charleston on 14 George Street and as you can see, the building is just magnificent. Now, pair one-heck of a backdrop with a crazy cast of Charleston wedding vendors and you get this lavish lace inspiration shoot designed by Fabulous Fete. The beautiful model was outfitted in a dreamy Kira Elizabeth original that was complemented with delicate flowers from WildFlowers Inc., an elegant cake from Elaine’s Event and stunning stationery from Open House. Go ahead, get your pin on!
I thought you might want to kick off your morning with a little teaser from the lenses of Richard Bell Photography. This morning we’re sharing Haley’s stunning bridal session that took place in the heart of Holy City thanks to the talented Mell Bell. If you think this is swoon-worthy, just wait til this afternoon when you feast your eyes on Haley’s Mills House Hotel Wedding!
I hope everyone had a fabulous (and relaxing!) Thanksgiving and is enjoying their long Holiday weekend! I thought we could take a quick break from all this Black Friday madness to swoon over some of these gorgeous, Fall bouquets. I’m dying over all these rich, rustic colors and cozy textures! Which one’s your fav?

The things Ricki Ford can do with a camera tend to leave me speechless and, to be honest, I have no words for the Lowcountry loveliness you’re about to feast your eyes on. Ricki teamed up with Gigi Noelle Events for this heavenly shoot at Rock Smith Farms in Myrtle Beach and, well, they nailed it! Gigi Noelle created a whimsical color palette of grey and yellow that was accented with pops of soft pink. Not only do I adore Emily’s romantic gown from Coastal Bridal, but the chunky pearl necklace and dreamy birdcage veil that topped of the look are pure perfection. Oh, and those striped invitations…love ‘em!
