Ripe peaches, juicy melons, luscious berries…. With the heat of summer upon us, I wanted to write a blog about ways to incorporate refreshing fruit into your wedding decor. Using a fruit display for a summer wedding is a fun way to add a pop of color and very inexpensive. Fruits are rich in color and can look amazing by themselves or combined with a bloom or two. You can use fruits as card holders, centerpieces, or in your specialty cocktails. Either way you choose to do it, using fruit as decoration adds a unique touch to your low country wedding!
My new favorite Southern wedding detail is incorporating vintage china into your Lowcountry wedding decor. I just love the look of mismatched vintage plates and tableware at weddings. It’s so charming, whimsical- and elegant and perfect for our gals marrying in Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach or Charleston. You know what’s even better, you can keep the plates after your wedding to remind you of your special day. Another option, let your guests take their plates home as a favor. Here are some pictures to inspire you!
I know, I know!Sorry doesn’t quite make up for the complete lack of blogging that’s taken place on ALW over the past week.I was off in Boston enjoying a business-related vacay, and while I had every intention of getting a few posts in, faulty hotel internet and the pure joy of being semi-unplugged (minus instagram, you know I can’t give that up!) was kind of awesome So, I apologize for the abrupt pause in your daily dose of Lowcountry wedding inspiration and email response, but I’m now officially back and kicking off this week with a gorgeous Charleston wedding from the talented, Richard Bell Photography.This Bride + Groom combined a lovely pink and purple color palette with some mouthwatering ham biscuits, sweet potato fries and even some Firefly vodka for a one-of-a-kind celebration at the Creek Club at I’On!
This week, the crew at A Lowcountry Wedding will be feverishly reviewing all the beautiful real wedding submissions we’ve received from up and down the Carolina coast. I’ll be honest, I’ve taken a peek at a few and you’re going to go crazy at what’s in store for our first online magazine! These big ol’ Southern weddings are IN-sane! So, while get cracking on these submissions, we thought you might to swoon over this dreamy Charleston wedding from Loren Routhier Photography. Loren is an amazing photography who, not only captures every lovely detail, she also has knack for capturing each and every couple at their finest. Gorgeous bride Elizabeth and her dapper husband Justin looked oh-so happy at their Middleton Place affair where Duvall Events was on hand to treat guests to a fabulous celebration!
Balloons! Balloons! Balloons! They are so much fun and are always a great touch to a Lowcountry wedding. Releasing balloons when the bride and groom exit would make an awesome picture for a day wedding! Or tape the strings of balloons at various heights to create a wall; instant backdrop! Use different sizes and shapes, guests will love it! What’s a party without balloons anyway!?
Our friend, and new ALW Vendor, Sea Star Arts has had a pretty exciting July! Just last week, the newly-branded Sea Star Arts (thanks to Gracious Brands!) launched a beautiful website that is sure to knock the socks off any Lowcountry bride on the hunt for a photographer…so head on over and take a look! As if a gorgeous new website wasn’t enough, I’m quite certain any bride that takes a gander will be instantly hooked when they catch a glimpse of Jeni’s work. Just take a peek when she recently teamed up with Pure Luxe Bride for Christina + Ervin’s Charleston wedding at Alhambra Hall. It’s a beauty, huh?
