Bride Tiffany is just adorable. She was the epitome of a Southern Belle as she strolled down the aisle in her pearls, perfect smile and big, beautiful ballgown where she met her husband, Preston, to say “I do”. Tiffany’s bridesmaids donned navy dresses, nude heels and light pink bouquets of roses while the gentlemen were dressed in grey. After an intimate, outdoor ceremony, the couple made their way over to McCrady’s for a lovely reception with their closest friends and family members. Thanks to CM Photography for capturing their beautiful Charleston Wedding day!
If you’re in the mood for a dreamy garden wedding (and don’t lie, I know you always are!), then you need to feast your eyes on this beauty captured by Pasha Belman Photography. It’s fairytale-style perfection. While Stephanie + Benjamin’s wedding didn’t take place in the Lowcountry, or even in the South for that matter, this little ol’ wedding blogger couldn’t resist when all of this pin-able heaven rolled across her inbox. But don’t you worry my little Lowcountry ladies, the fabulous Pasha Belman is not only available for destination weddings, but he’s also your guy if you’re in need of a Myrtle Beach or Charleston wedding photographer. I adore every detail of this Michigan affair from Stephanie’s show-stopping Vera gown to this swoon-worthy venue.
So, I know we’ve taken a bit of a blog hiatus, but I promise it’s been for a great cause! Over the past few months, we’ve been slaving away over the premiere issue of A Lowcountry Wedding mag. It’s been quite the process, we’ve been planning shoots, selecting real weddings and attempting to figure out the world of InDesign. We’ve had a few hang ups with some things behind the scenes, so we thank you for your patience! With it being our first issue, everything has taken a little longer than expected, but we’d rather have it perfect then send out something we’re not 100% proud of…and we promise you’re it’s going to be well worth the wait! So, to hold you over until the end of the week, we thought you’d give you a sneak peek of the beautiful cover shot by the talented Angela Cox Photography at the stunning RiverOaks. Ash and Co. Bridal killed it with model Katie Cockman hair and makeup, as she rocked a gorgeous LulaKate gown and that beautiful Moon and Lola necklace….Do you like!?!
I have a few favorites on Instagram that I’ve never met before but love everything about them. I love where they go, what they say, and am always envious of their amateur photography skills and their spot-on filter selections (it’s so hard to choose sometimes!), so needless to say, I was beyond thrilled when I was introduced to Miss Jennifer at a recent Social Media meeting. It was so exciting to finally meet the face behind the French Quarter Inn’s (@fqicharlestonsc) wonderful Instagram feed. Take my word for it, it’s awesome. Not only is she simply wonderful in person, but she’s a Georgia grad (bonus points) and engaged (yay!). After hearing all of this good news, I told her it only made perfect sense for us to share her lovely Downtown engagement session from the talented crew at Richard Bell Photography! Luckily, she obliged and I’m super excited to welcome Jennifer and her fiancé Cory to A Lowcountry Wedding. Thank you for sharing you’re adorable Charleston wedding engagement, we can’t wait for your big day!
Okay, so I know it’s late on Friday, but I couldn’t not send you off into the weekend with a little Lowcountry wedding loveliness, especially when it was created by that dream team over at Pure Luxe Bride! Jackie + Matt tied the knot this August in a traditional ceremony before heading over to the gorgeous Lowndes Grove Plantation for a real Charleston wedding celebration! The crew at Fish cooked up a delicious seated dinner where guests had the option of chicken, ravioli or swordfish. After, they enjoyed an evening under the Lowcountry stars where they indulged in a cigar station and the tunes of Permanent Vacation. Thanks to Red Shutter Studio for capturing the entire day! Oh, and how could I forget! Happy Anniversary to my new neighbors and friends, Francesca and Justin, on their 5 year wedding anniversary! I hope you two have a wonderful weekend!

You know I love when I get to take my ALW faithful for a little day trip down to my home state of Georgia, especially when we make a beeline right for the magical Sea Island. With Events by Caroline behind the wedding wheel, Catherine + Josh tied the knot in elegant, outdoor ceremony overlooking the water, in what appears to be a Lowcountry afternoon that most gals dream of. To celebrate, the couple joined their wedding guests for a tented evening under the stars where the gals at Garden on the Square created superbly Southern floral arrangements of hydrangeas and baby’s breath to grace the tabletops. With a welcoming ocean breeze, Guest relaxed in a lovely outdoor lounge area and dined on a feast of Southern cuisine, including roasted quail, before kicking off their shoes and hopping on the dance floor to enjoy the sounds of The Swinging Medallions. Thanks to the wonderful Donna Von Bruening for capturing this swoon-worthy Sea Island Wedding! Oh, and yes, that is a real fish cake!
