I know, I know!Sorry doesn’t quite make up for the complete lack of blogging that’s taken place on ALW over the past week.I was off in Boston enjoying a business-related vacay, and while I had every intention of getting a few posts in, faulty hotel internet and the pure joy of being semi-unplugged (minus instagram, you know I can’t give that up!) was kind of awesome So, I apologize for the abrupt pause in your daily dose of Lowcountry wedding inspiration and email response, but I’m now officially back and kicking off this week with a gorgeous Charleston wedding from the talented, Richard Bell Photography.This Bride + Groom combined a lovely pink and purple color palette with some mouthwatering ham biscuits, sweet potato fries and even some Firefly vodka for a one-of-a-kind celebration at the Creek Club at I’On!
Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Lowcountry weekend, and for those of you in Charleston, hope you made a trip out to Kiawah for the PGA Championship! We’re kicking off this sleepy Monday with a sweet, Southern wedding in Clemson, South Carolina from Charleston-based wedding photographer, Lauren Jonas. Emily looked effortless in a romantic lace gown with a soft up-do and white hydrangea bouquet. Will and the rest of the guys rocked tan suits accented with purple ties and bouts.
You’ve got to admit that our Lowcountry brides have an impeccably elegant Southern style…I think they’re just born with it So it’s no surprise they make sure their maids are dressed to the nines, as well. They keep it sophisticated with a sweet pastel color palette for a classic plantation reception or they’ll spice it up with bright, trendy patterns for an oceanside, Myrtle Beach affair. They’ll dress their Lowcountry gals in flowy, long gowns that are perfect for a relaxed Hilton Head wedding or they’ll keep it short with a sassy cocktail dress fitting of a Downtown Charleston soiree. Bottom line, stick with your oh-so-fabulous taste when choosing your bridesmaids dresses, I promise they’ll thank you for it later!

Today, we’ve got a big, beautiful helping of wedding fabulousness from the talented team at Richard Bell Photography. Oh, and that’s not all! Today’s couple hand selected some of Charleston’s finest wedding vendors for their classic Middleton Place affair. Kimberly + Neil were blessed with picturesque weather as they said their ‘I do’s’ in an outdoor ceremony on the lawn of the grand estate. (Just wait until you see the images of Kimberly walking down the aisle…to die for!) The celebration continued in the Pavilion which was decorated to perfection with hanging wild smilax in the rafters and twinkle lights to soften the ceiling. Kimberly was hoping for a Southern, Fall wedding but wasn’t crazy about your typical Fall colors. So, with the help of Duvall Events and Tiger Lily Weddings, they went with a rich color palette of purple mixed with white hydrangeas, green hypericum berries and touches of soft white roses. The tables were adorned with natural greenery and hydrangeas to create a floral wreath around glowing silver lanterns that set the mood for the cozy, Fall affair. The team at Duvall Events did not disappoint as they treated the guests to a stunning array of Lowcountry cuisine and tasty caramel apples!
Alicia + Wade tied the knot this past June on the shores of Pensacola, Florida. The couple and their bridal party prepped for the big day at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel where the award-winning photographer team from Studio One Eleven Inc. caught some fabulous images! Alicia dazzled in a strapless gown complimented by a stunning bouquet while her maids rocked dresses in varying shades of purple. Wade and his men looked dapper in white. After the perfect sunset ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to the Sanders Beach-Corinne Jones Community Center to kick off the evening’s festivities. Alicia left the decor to the talented staff at Southern Floral Traditions, who completely transformed the venue. What a beautiful (and fun) wedding!?!
For Round Two, we’ve got another beautiful Texas affair. Amy + Casey’s got married this past August in Palestine, Texas (just outside of Dallas) and one of our favorites, AlexM Photography, was their capture all the details. Their wedding was held at the enchanting Elmwood Gardens and was planned to a T by Perfect Plans. Their stunning outdoor ceremony had a Southern glam vibe that included some amazing draping and a gorgeous chandeliers. While the bridal party rocked all black, Amy incorporated pops of purple and green throughout the evening.
Laura + Chris were married this past September just outside of Dallas, Texas. The couple were hoping for a simple, yet elegant affair and that’s just what they had at the lovely Honeysuckle Gardens. Laura went with a purple and orange color palette that was fitting of their rustic venue and added some fun punches of color to their wedding day. From the meaningful ceremony shots to all the darling details, the talented team from Mulberry Lane Studio was on hand to capture the couple’s memorable day.
