It totally slipped my mind that yesterday was Veterans’ Day (which might explain why I showed up at the County Treasurer’s Office to pay my car taxes and no one was there. Whoopsies!). Had I remembered, I absolutely would have shared Robyn + Andy’s quaint Heritage Plantation wedding from Dana Cubbage Wedding Photography but instead, we’ll just share it today! Since the lovely Dana Cubbage was there to capture all the details, it’s only fitting we let her tell their love story…
”Andy is in the Air Force and based in Louisiana, while Robyn lives and works in Missouri. These two have spent so much time apart, but their love for each other – and Robyn’s 10 year old son, Drake – is evident. One of my absolute favorite moments of their day was immediately after the ceremony, Drake came up and hugged both Robyn + Andy. It was an extremely special moment.
Robyn planned the entire wedding herself. She even did her own hair and created her own bouquet! Talk about talented! She chose Heritage Golf Club after seeing photos of it online. She absolutely fell in love with the location, the large oaks, the marina, and the Spanish Moss. Oh, the Spanish Moss! Although it rained in the morning, the skies cleared in time for their outdoor ceremony beneath an oak tree. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and the sunset at the marina was stunning. Robyn, Andy + their guests released wish lanterns from the dock at the end of the evening. Although the wind made it tricky, they were able to successfully launch a few. It was a beautiful sight and onlookers cheered as they took flight.”
You know I love when I get to take my ALW faithful for a little day trip down to my home state of Georgia, especially when we make a beeline right for the magical Sea Island. With Events by Caroline behind the wedding wheel, Catherine + Josh tied the knot in elegant, outdoor ceremony overlooking the water, in what appears to be a Lowcountry afternoon that most gals dream of. To celebrate, the couple joined their wedding guests for a tented evening under the stars where the gals at Garden on the Square created superbly Southern floral arrangements of hydrangeas and baby’s breath to grace the tabletops. With a welcoming ocean breeze, Guest relaxed in a lovely outdoor lounge area and dined on a feast of Southern cuisine, including roasted quail, before kicking off their shoes and hopping on the dance floor to enjoy the sounds of The Swinging Medallions. Thanks to the wonderful Donna Von Bruening for capturing this swoon-worthy Sea Island Wedding! Oh, and yes, that is a real fish cake!
Do you mind if we take stroll down to Savannah today for a little wedding loveliness off the Georgia coast? Because our Georgia friends sure do know how to make a Lowcountry bride smile and this beauty from Diana Daley has our heads spinning! Bride Ashley was dressed in a flowing strapless Vera Wang gown and jeweled sandals that perfectly complemented her effortless style. The sweet couple became husband and wife in a lovely outdoor ceremony in Forsyth Park that is surely a daydream for any Savannah bride-to-be. After, the newlyweds celebrated their new life together with family and friends at Churchill’s Pub in the heart of Downtown Savannah.
Cameron + Brittany are such cutie pies. Completely adorable and so genuine. You get the feeling that that this is how much fun they have on a regular basis, just hanging out, just the two of them. Which makes me feel certain that these two will be enjoying a very happy life together. I will say, I’m super happy Charleston wedding vendor Sara Bee Photography was on hand to capture all the cute-ness in that picture perfect way she always does. The natural light and lovely setting…amazing
It’s been a minute since we properly celebrated Southern Wedding Sunday, so I figured if we were going to bring it back we really needed to do it with a bang…and Marcy + Chris’s Reid Barn wedding is the definition of a bang! This beauty has made me fall in love for an orange and purple color palette like I never thought I could…partially thanks to Bedazzled Flower Shop for those ah-mazing bouquets. Designed by Signature Weddings & Events, their rustic details in the North Georgia Mountains are sure to make you get your pin on! For their intimate ceremony, the aisle was flanked with bare branches and the rafters were draped with whimsical ribbons in shades of blush. After, guests celebrated the night away with homemade whoopie pies and mason jar filled drinks! Thanks to Brita Photography for sharing all the beautiful Southern details!
Sometimes it’s a beautiful Lowcountry wedding venue, or an adorable Southern detail, an amazing photographer, a killer florist…I never know what will set our hearts a-flutter! But there is something about everything single one of the Lowcountry weddings that we post that we just can’t get enough. And then every once in a while, one comes along that I wish I could have been right in the middle of. You know, just jump right in the mix and party the night away, because it looked like such a good time! One of those weddings that people still rave about how much fun it was. The ones that have guests throwing back drinks, kicking off their shoes and running to the dance floor. Well, that’s exactly what this Charleston wedding photographed by Riverland Studios was all about! Even though Kate + Nate’s Carolina Yacht Club wedding is stunningly beautiful (and I know you all will go crazy pinning the details), I think the combination of such a sweet couple, their team of truly talented Charleston wedding vendors and a fun-loving guest list in the mood to celebrate, proved to be just what the doctor ordered…a big ol’ Southern wedding bash, Lowcountry-style! Seriously, some of these bridesmaids dancing are just cracking me up!
I’ll tell you what, it’s been a crazy week over here! It still can’t believe it’s already August. This summer has just flown by! As I head out to Dayton, Ohio this weekend for my sister’s bridal shower, I thought I’d share a little dose of what we all love the most…a lovely South Carolina wedding with a preppy green and navy color filled with adorable Southern wedding details. This beauty took place in Aiken, South Carolina at Woodside Plantation Country Club and was shot by our friend Britt Croft Photography. Happy Friday, y’all!
