It’s no secret that I daydream about Charleston weddings. Whether it’s a breathtaking Lowcountry plantation, a jaw-dropping bouquet or a stunning Southern bride, I love all of it. Every last single drop! Lucky for me, I know you ladies share in my obsession. I couldn’t be more excited to share this swoon-worthy bridal session at one of my favorite Charleston wedding venues, Lowndes Grove. This little slice of Lowcountry heaven played host to the beautiful Miss Coley as she suited up in her bridal attire for her timeless bridal portraits from our friend, Jennings King Photography.
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.”

But Charleston holds a special place in our hearts for this South Carolinian because her designs bring that Southern grace and charm that every Lowcountry belle is looking for in her gown.
