Ashley & Drew were married in the beautiful First Scots Presbyterian church in downtown Charleston. The day’s celebrations continued at The Island House on John’s Island under twinkling strands of lights hung from their airy reception tent. Upon their arrival, guests were asked to sign river rocks as a nod to the bride and groom’s first anniversary. We’re loving how the Lowcountry views were complimented by the modern outdoor décor. The bride chose a deep navy and soft ivory color scheme for her flowers designed by The Flower Cottage, guests’ favors, and table settings….and that gown, that gown from Gown Boutique of Charleston is stunning! An exit under a shower of rice made for a perfect ending to their enchanting Charleston wedding night. Thanks to Riverland Studios for capturing all the 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 will you tell you what, I’ve been chomping at the bit waiting to share this pretty little number shot by Couture Photography and coordinated by Mingle. Lucky for you, you won’t have to wait a moment longer to soak up all the dreaminess of this gorgeous Charleston wedding at Lowndes Grove. I’m positive that as you scroll through this beauty you will be oohh-ing and ahh-ing at every ounce of this perfect Fall fete. Luke Wilson Special Events was the design mastermind behind the entire day while First Blooms of Charleston created the fabulous succulent-laced bouquets and centerpieces. Oh, and how adorable is dad with his little hat as they walked down the aisle. Presh. Thanks to Megan of Mingle for sharing all the details…
“Nancy and Harris are a unique, young couple. They wanted their wedding not only to be fun but a reflection of their adopted home- Charleston. Nancy commissioned First Bloom of Charleston to create arrangements and bouquets of succulents, antique hydrangea, cotton balls, and sweet grass roses in sweet grass baskets owned by the mother of the bride. Luke Wilson designed the space including branch chandeliers, natural burlap colored linens, and mahogany chairs. Nancy’s father put together 3 antique shutters which escort card tags were tied on to. She incorporated Rewined candles on each table along with a history of the sweet grass basket. Her table names were pictures of Charleston street signs in antique frames. To incorporate their Jewish traditions Nancy’s family made the chuppah topper from their heirloom fabric and lace. They also made special chairs for the Hora- complete with handles. Charleston Crepe Company made the cake. It looked beautiful decorated with sweet grass roses and cotton blossoms atop a piece of family heirloom lace. The mother and father of the bride’s vintage cake topper was displayed next to the cake. Mingle stepped in to pull the whole event together with day-of coordination.”
There’s no doubt Charleston is blessed with a wealth of talented vendors that, luckily for you and I, execute dreamy, Lowcountry weddings on a weekly basis, and today’s Southern stunner is no different. Niccole + John selected one of Charleston’s most-sought after venues, the timeless William Aiken House, as the backdrop for their beautiful, Spring affair and the crew at Richard Bell Photography was on hand to capture it all. The couple married in an intimate, outdoor ceremony before treating their guests to refreshing libations and delicious, Lowcountry cuisine from Fish. The lively celebration continued with the sounds of East Coast Entertainment as everyone enjoyed a gorgeous evening under the Charleston stars.
