It’s no question that the Lowcountry is blessed with some of the most jaw-dropping wedding venues in the South and one that will always find it’s way to the top of my venue list is Charleston’s Boone Hall Plantation. It’s got everything a Lowcountry bride could dream of….Spanish moss dripping from every tree, a sprawling plantation home encircled by a stunning wrought-iron fence and immaculate grounds that make for the perfect Lowcountry backdrop….I mean, the place is just magical. So, it’s no surprise that Boone Hall is the venue of choice for dreamy, Charleston weddings and swoon-worthy bridal sessions. Lucky for us, the talented Chi Photography captured Southern Belle,Amanda as she posed for the camera in her airy, textured gown and sassy pink heels.CONTINUE READING...

Ohhh, ladies! We’re diving right into this week with a big dose of Lowcountry wedding heaven that is sure to knock your socks off. Captured by our friend Brooke Roberts Photography, this fabulous inspiration shoot highlights everything we love about this time of the year. Getting hitched by the coast lends itself well to beautiful outdoor event, whether it’s your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or an intimate shower…you just can’t go wrong. With the help of Judi Watson Florals and Dutchman Designs, the team matched soft furnishings with pops of colorful accent pieces to achieve a cozy, laid back setting at The St. Simons Lighthouse and A.J. Jones Heritage Center. Aren’t you loving the summery color palette of turquoise and pink? The models were outfitted in dresses from Lady in White and Snippety Do Da’s topped them off with the perfect hair and make up. Possibly my favorite part? That food!

It’s been in the works for awhile now, but we’re excited to finally kick off a new segment!

So, for your viewing pleasure, you’ll find that every Friday we’ll be featuring some of our beloved Lowcountry Wedding Venues! We’ll cover our favorites from up and down the South Carolina coastline (Hilton Head, Charleston, Myrtle Beach…you name it!) and they’ll range from beautiful Southern Plantations to historic landmarks and modern hotels to waterfront properties.
To properly get this party started, we’re featuring one of Charleston’s most spectacular, waterfront wedding venues…and boy, is it a stunner!

It’s Monday again and we’re diving into this week with a beauty from the team at MCG Photography. Darling bride Rebecca wanted a whimsical, Charleston wedding to highlight her sweet, vintage style, and with the help of Tiger Lily Weddings, that’s exactly what she got! The couple said ‘I do’ at the stunning Grace Episcopal Church in Downtown Charleston in front of their closest friends and family. After a traditional ceremony in the historic church, the couple departed in a horse drawn carriage from Charleston Coach before a beautiful reception at the Francis Marion Hotel.
