It’s no secret that it’s truly difficult for me to control my gushing when a dreamy bridal session rolls across my inbox, so I’ll try to keep it short and sweet as I give you a little insight into Christen’s Charleston bridal session…but no promises! Captured by the talented Carmen Ash Photography and surrounded by downtown’s history, Christen started her day in front of the Cistern on the grounds of College of Charleston…which, if you’ve ever seen it, is absolutely stunning. She was dressed to perfection in a soft, strapless Watters gown (The Torreno Style) that she complimented with a beautiful Spring bouquet from Carolina Charm. Afterwards, they moved the party to a picturesque Lowcountry plantation to capture this glowing Southern bride in all her glory.
It’s a question on every bride’s mind…what on earth am I going to give as favors? OR should I even going to spend money on favors? Now let’s be serious, we’ve all chunked many-a cheesy wedding favors in trash (and rightfully so!) but with all the inspiration the Lowcountry offers, there must be a handful of memorable (and useable) surcees your wedding guests can appreciate. For instance, maybe our Hilton Head brides can send their guests home with a little sweet tea for the road (Firefly, anyone?), or maybe your Charleston folks would enjoy some classic benne wafers or sweet pralines (I know I would!). What about some grits with your favorite shrimp and grits recipe for your Myrtle Beach affair? Take a look at a few of our favorites and leave us a note if you’ve got a local favorite we forgot!

Good morning, my little Southern Belles! We’re going to get right to it this Monday morning with a sweet, farm engagement session from South Carolina based D’Attoma Studios.
Sherry and Jonathan met several years ago when she was a manager at Abercrombie. Jonathan was genuine and funny and was always asking her to join him at parties or out with friends. He would tease her at work, picking her up over his shoulders and carrying her around the store. She laughed with him, but mainly “stuck him the dressing room” where he couldn’t cause trouble. She chose to not join him outside of work, blaming it on the companies strict policy of not fraternizing with employees.
Jonathan stopped working at Abercrombie, and Sherry moved on to work in marketing and advertising. Time passed and she didn’t hear from him for awhile. Both were pursing lives and careers with different groups of people, and their paths didn’t really cross. Until one night. The phone rang, and it was him. He invited her out to eat with friends and to go watch a fight. Sherry used to do martial arts and instantly asked who was fighting. It happened to be someone she knew… and so she decided to join him that night. They didn’t skip a beat. They reminisced like long lost friends and connected as never before. From then on, they were inseparable.
You just can’t go wrong by incorporating navy into your wedding color palette. It’s a classic, timeless addition to any coastal, Lowcountry reception and compliments almost any color to perfection. Hilton Head Bride Anna paired navy with apple green for her preppy, Southern affair and we’re loving every minute of it! Not only does her color scheme set my heart a-flutter, but her shoes are pure heaven. Thanks to talented crew from Landon Jacob Productions for capturing every, beautiful moment of this fabulous, Hilton Head soiree!
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.
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!
