Oh, boy! We’re taking a trip up the Carolina coast, just outside of Myrtle Beach, to the quaint little coastal town of Pawleys Island where Lauren + Shelton recently tied the knot under the beautiful Oak trees. This stunning Southern wedding took place at one of the Lowcountry’s most picturesque venues, Litchfield Plantation and provide the perfect backdrop for a lovely evening under the stars. With the help of Corina Silva, the couple brought their rustic dreams to life with a charming coral, aqua and navy color palette. Thanks to Feuza Reis Studios for capturing all of the charming details!
I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the hours until 5 o’clock! The weekend can’t get here soon enough! As usual, we like to kick the weekend off with a little Lowcountry flair and that’s exactly what you’re going to get with this spunky, Spring Myrtle Beach wedding. South Florida couple Megan + Michael packed their bags and headed to the Lowcountry for their April wedding in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They chose Grande Dunes Ocean Club to host the entire affair starting with a beautiful, outdoor ceremony before heading inside for a lively reception! The entire day was outfitted a fresh purple and green color palette and the bride even tackled the centerpieces herself. Impressive, huh? Thanks to the talented Gillian Reinhardt of Carolina Studios for capturing this fabulous wedding…
Let’s face it, Lowcountry brides always know how to throw gorgeous, elegant weddings and the stunning Mrs. Wilcox is no different… and thank goodness for us, Gene Ho Photography was there to capture it all! The oh-so-attractive couple, Tiffany + Chris, had a fabulous wedding at Myrtle Beach’s Marina Inn at Grande Dunes last July, and boy, was it a stunner! With the help of the ladies of Memorable Moments, who were on hand to organize every last dreamy detail, and the talented design team from Blossom Events, they were able to create a vibrant, summer evening that their guests are still raving about. Thanks to Tiffany for giving us an inside view into their Myrtle Beach wedding!
How did you meet?
At Enloe High School in Raleigh North Carolina, high school sweethearts!
Tell us your engagement story. (Give us every romantic detail!)
We were home in North Carolina for the NBA All Star break visiting family. Valentine’s Day was that Sunday. We flew back to Detroit on Valentine’s Day and didn’t get back until that evening. Chris mentioned taking Tiffany out to dinner but she didn’t want to go, too many people. So they ordered takeout and enjoyed the night in. Tiffany gave Chris his Valentine’s Day present and the night went on. We were watching a movie and Chris told me how he felt about me and how much he appreciated me and loved me. He also told me he didn’t get me anything for Valentine’s Day. I was a little upset but tried not to show it! Later that night he gave me a box, I opened it and asked what is this. He asked me to marry him and I cried like a baby! The proposal fit us perfect!
What are your ties to the Myrtle Beach area?
Chris and I love Myrtle Beach. A nice getaway that’s not too close but at the same time not too far from home! We have traveled and visited the area since we were in High School. We thought there would be no better place to say, “I do!” We also support the Lupus Foundation due to him having a history of lupus in his family. With that being said, Chris has an annual golf tournament in Myrtle Beach to support and raise money in hopes to find a cure for the disease.
What was the best thing about your wedding day?
The best thing about our wedding day was LOVE. It was so strong and so powerful! It was romantic and everything was perfect! You could feel the love that we both shared for each other. There weren’t too many dry eyes at the ceremony! There were so many people there but all I saw was him and all he saw was me!
Describe what made your wedding unique…
Our wedding was unique because it was us! From the bold vibrant colors and hints of bling throughout the entire wedding (and stationary) representing Tiffany’s personality, to the food being some of Chris’ favorites! Not to mention, Chris’ groom’s cake, his car, a 1972 Chevelle sitting in the center of the Maryland Terrapins basketball court, it was amazing. We did not miss one detail!
So, things have really taken off over here at A Lowcountry Wedding!

Now, to the good stuff! One of our favorites, Brooke Christl Photography, kindly sent over this gorgeous Myrtle Beach wedding and we just couldn’t wait to share it with our brides-to-be. Katie + Rob tied the knot last May in an outdoor ceremony on the grounds of Pine Lakes Country Club. The bride strolled down the aisle in a stunning strapless gown by Justin Alexander Bridal while her maids looked charming in Navy dresses. After saying ‘I do’, they continued the celebration in the ballroom where Bright and Beautiful Flowers adorned the space with beautiful, natural floral arrangements that complimented the blue, yellow, green and white color palette. Guests enjoyed tasty Lowcountry cuisine before the bride and groom departed in a classic, old school ride!
