I hope everyone had a lovely Easter (and Masters!) weekend and was able to enjoy the weather! We’re going to get things started this week with an effortless, Fall engagement session by Emily Horton Photography at the famed Boone Hall Plantation. The historic plantation was a beautiful Lowcountry backdrop for the couple’s autumn afternoon and Whitney + Chris went classic attire to compliment the scenery. Whitney was glowing and relaxed as Emily captured the soon-to-be newlyweds in their element.

Oh, and did I forget to mention that the crew from Earth Fare will be providing the wine and the first 50 guest will receive a sweet gift bag provided by Cos Bar and Paul Mitchell! So, get to steppin’ and buy your tickets here because space is limited!
Finally, it’s Friday and, per usual, we’re sending you guys off with some sun-kissed photography to get the weekend started just right. Salpy + Anto are both musicians, so they had to incorporate their love of melodies into their engagement session, especially since that’s what brought them together in the first place. He’s a guitarist and she’s a singer in an up-and-coming band. At first sight they fell madly in love and are now they’re going to make it official! They chose a quiet little spot in Griffith Park to highlight their edgy, vintage style with their love of music and photographer Randi Marie captured every spectacular moment.
So, things have really taken off over here at A Lowcountry Wedding! Our readership grows every week and on a daily basis we’re receiving emails, tweets and facebook messages from Lowcountry brides who are in search of their perfect vendors…well not to worry, your wish is our command! We’re currently in the process of adding a vendor section for each region of the Lowcountry to assist with your wedding day needs! Until then, continue to shoot us emails and we’ll make sure to point you in the right direction
Now, to the good stuff! One of our favorites, Brooke Christl Photography, kindly sent over this gorgeous Myrtle Beach wedding and we just couldn’t wait to share it with our brides-to-be. Katie + Rob tied the knot last May in an outdoor ceremony on the grounds of Pine Lakes Country Club. The bride strolled down the aisle in a stunning strapless gown by Justin Alexander Bridal while her maids looked charming in Navy dresses. After saying ‘I do’, they continued the celebration in the ballroom where Bright and Beautiful Flowers adorned the space with beautiful, natural floral arrangements that complimented the blue, yellow, green and white color palette. Guests enjoyed tasty Lowcountry cuisine before the bride and groom departed in a classic, old school ride!
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!
A few weeks ago we shared Rachel + David’s sweet Lowcountry wedding, shot by the talented Mell Bell of Richard Bell Photography, that left many of you oohhhing and ahhhing…and I can’t say that I blame you! Well, today we’ve got even more of Rachel’s bridal bliss to share with you. Rachel selected Charleston’s picturesque Magnolia Plantation and Gardens as the backdrop for her bridal portraits and I have to say it may have been the perfect decision. As she roamed the gardens, Mell Bell was on hand to capture the blushing bride (and her fabulous blue shoes!) and the stunning scenery.
Charleston photographer Kelly Sauer of Girl in the White Dress must know me way too well. I’m pretty certain she knew the minute I saw this darling anniversary shoot that it would just set my heart a-flutter…and boy, did it! The couple, Rachel + Bruce, headed back to the place where they said ‘I do’, Bruce’s picturesque parent’s home, for this sweet inspiration shoot filled with adorable DIY details and loads of Lowcountry charm! I mean, there’s a joggling board and a dock…what more could you want? The whole afternoon was relaxed and effortless which was evident in Rachel’s picnic-esque selection of food (salmon and smoked turkey finger sandwiches, Barefoot Contessa lemon bars, and sweet tea), fresh fruit (pears, lemons, and muscadine grapes) and a little mint to brighten the feel of things. Kelly incorporated soft pops of red as she designed and created the jewelry, bouquets, favors and centerpieces full of happy-go-lucky daisies. I must say, Kelly’s adorable daughter Piper may have just stolen the show in her role as the flower girl…don’t ya think?
