I have to say, I couldn’t be more excited about this week’s ALW line-up. We’ve got one stunning Lowcountry wedding after another, a charming Downtown Charleston bridal session and even an Isle of Palms bachelorette party that will probably have you running for the nearest bottle of champagne just so you can join in on the fun! But to kick-start what’s sure to be a very pin-able week over here, we’re heading down to Hilton Head for Ashley + Phil easy-going, beach affair planned by Weddings with Leah. This cute couple tied the knot in a low-key, ocean side ceremony in front of an intimate gathering of family and friends before making their way back to the beach house to celebrate the night away! My favorite part…all of the wonderful pop-up stationery that the bride and groom designed themselves. Genius! Thanks to amelia + dan photography for capturing this beauty.
William + Ashley combined a handful of my favorite things for their vintage-inspired engagement session from one uber-talented Charleston wedding vendor, Collette Mruk Photography! Let’s see…an adorable polka dot skirt, William’s suspenders, sassy red heels and an antique car. How can you not love every minute!?! Oh, and how could I forget. I’m head-over-heels for Ashley’s perfect ‘do!
Tiffany told me her photographer was insanely talented. Actually, if I remember correctly, she said ‘Homegirl is AMAZING’…and after you check this out I’m positive you’ll be thinking the same thing. Elle Olivia Photography is any girl’s dream photographer. She captures timeless images that will make you weak-in-the-knees! She met up with Tiffany + Jake at Congaree National Park, one of the couple’s most treasured places, where they soaked up that gorgeous natural night. For any gal that’s in the midst of planning her engagement session attire, I’d take some nots from Tiffany. Her chic, classic selections perfectly complement her style and that wonderful setting. After a quick wardrobe change, they headed to one of Tiffany’s favorite spots, the Columbia Antique Mall, to cap off the evening. It was the Antique Mall that made Tiffany realize if Jake was willing to sacrifice countless weekends to support her antiquing habit then he must be a keeper! We can’t wait to see these two tie the knot this coming April! Thanks for sharing!
Shannon + Kirk first laid eyes on each other at Planet Fitness, and before they knew it, they were inseparable. Quickly after their instantaneous connection, the couple realized it was the real deal and after a short courtship, Kirk popped the question! This adorable twosome is knee-deep in planning their dream Lowcountry wedding and recently enlisted the help of one of our favorites, South Carolina wedding vendor, Ricki Ford Photographers, to capture them in all their loving glory.
Emily + Andrew tied the knot at, hands down, one of our favorite Lowcountry wedding venues…the gorgeous Magnolia Plantation and Gardens! Emily stunned in an off-the-shoulder, lace gown that she paired with a perfect pair of loafers, while her bridesmaid dazzled in a peach gown. Lucky for us, the talented Carmen Ash Photography was there to capture the moment as the couple said ‘I do’ in a dreamy, outdoor ceremony under the oaks. Don’t you just love those umbrellas? With the assistance of the crew at Intrigue Design & Events, the sweet couple treated their guests to quite the reception including tasty, Lowcountry cuisine from Good Food Catering (let me get some of those ham biscuits!), a heavenly dessert station, cigar bar and late night snacks! Thanks to Absolutely Charleston, Emily + Andrew exited in a sea of sparklers as they departed under the Charleston stars.
Oh, girls! We’re kicking off this week with a Lowcountry wedding from one of my favorite places on Earth…the one-and-only, Kiawah Island! Riverland Studios was behind the camera for this gorgeou,s Fall wedding at the luxurious Cassique Golf Club. Thanks to the uber-creative team at Charleston Stems, Kim + Billy incorporated chic accents of cotton into their heavenly wedding day decor filled with a beautiful color palette of pinks, greens and blues. They used turquoise chevron (which I love!) as the pattern for the programs, place cards, and signs. I’ll tell you what, I don’t think you could find a more perfect ceremony location…swoon-city!
If you asked me the best time of the year to get married in Charleston I would say, hands down, October is the month to shoot for. Granted, January’s been pretty fab this year! By that time of the year, it’s usually cooled off a bit and you’re likely to find yourself with a gorgeous 70 degree, Lowcountry evening. Schayla + TJ choose the picturesque Pepper Plantation out in Awendaw to host their dreamy, Fall nuptials, and luckily for us, Charleston wedding vendor,CM Photography, was on hand to capture all the gorgeous details!
