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!

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!

There a few things we love more than a stunning Lowcountry Bride and her Southern bridal session, especially when that bridal session is executed by a talented team of Charleston wedding vendors, starting with our friend Carmen Ash Photography!  Beautiful Bride Natalie donned a lovely strapless lace gown from The Bridal House of Charleston.  Her hair was swept back in an effortless up-do from Affair Hair by…Tanesha, while Pamela Lesch Makeup gave Natalie that sweet bridal glow.

We’re so excited to share this lovely Lowcountry wedding engagement from our friends at Sweet Tea Imagery.  The session kicked off with a low-key tour of Downtown Charleston, which for all of us romantics means historic homes, cobblestone and alleyways.  Swoon!  Then the adorable couple, Alexandra + Thomas, headed over to Folly Beach to soak up the sunset, sand and the salty breeze.  We’re positive you’ll love this Folly Beach wedding engagement!

This time on Wedding Woes we’re sharing one of our bride’s biggest “blonde moments” that coincided perfectly with her bridal portraits.  Definitely not the best timing for her, but it’s happened to the best of us, right?! Enjoy!

 

“ For a working bride, weekends are about the only time to get key pre-wedding tasks as well as every day appointments taken care of. With only so many weekends in a month you often find yourself over booked. In my case, I had the bright idea to make an appointment to test out my “wedding hair color” the day before my bridal portraits. Everyone knows you need a couple of days for your highlights to blend in and fade to a natural color. Well, everyone except for me. The day before. Really? WHAT was I thinking!?

Well, I wanted my hair “summertime blonde” for my wintertime wedding and boy did my stylist make it blonde! Half an hour after my appointment I went to pick up my gown for my portraits the next day. As soon as I got to the gown shop and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror I thought “Oh s***, this is waaayyyyy too blonde!” The staff at the shop saw my concern but they all assured me “it was fiiiineee”.

I drove home immediately afterwards and showered, praying some of the color would wash out.  After blow-drying my hair I just stared at myself in the mirror and started sobbing. I was going to look like My Size Wedding Barbie in my portraits and what if I couldn’t get it back to normal in time for the wedding?!

I frantically drove back to the salon hoping my stylist could work some magic. She (of course) told me it looked great but she could fix it if I really wanted her to. Bridezilla much? I think so. After what seemed like hours of the entire staff at the salon reassuring me it looked good, I finally convinced myself that it was OK and I would come to enjoy the color.

In the end, my bridal portraits turned out fine and my hair was back to normal in time for the wedding. However my bridesmaids did enjoy teasing me about how I managed to keep my hair so sun kissed that late in the fall!”

 

Brides, we’ll quote Elle Woods on this one for you: “The rules of hair care are simple and finite. Any Cosmo girl would have known.” But just incase you forgot like this Lowcountry bride, here are a few helpful tips to avoid hair-do horror.

  • We know your schedule leading up to the big day is packed, but try to avoid planning appointments that will directly affect the other back to back!
  • For brides who color their hair, it does fade so give yourself a week or two before panicking!
  • Make sure your stylist knows exactly what you want when it comes to both color and style. And if it doesn’t turn out the way you want it, don’t be afraid to say something!
