To kick off our Southern Wedding Sunday, we’re sharing this adorable, Notebook-inspired engagement session from our pal and Charleston wedding vendor, The Click Chick Photography! Since the sweet couple, Jen + John, were in the midst of designing their Hollywood-glam wedding, they turned to one of our favorite Lowcountry love stories, ‘The Notebook‘, for inspiration in their gorgeous engagement session. The quaint town of Lagrange, Kentucky made for the perfect backdrop, especially when combined with Jen’s vintage attire!

It’s so easy to get caught up in the fabulous-ness of pinterest, magazines and blogs when planning your Charleston wedding. They’re all brimming with luscious details and tons of ideas but it’s important to stay true to yourself and make sure your wedding truly reflects you as couple. When I first laid eyes on Jess + James’ Charleston wedding, my first thought was, ‘These two did it right!’ Mackenzie, of The Click Chick Photography, was on hand to capture the entire day and was kind enough to share all the darling details…
“A taco truck, a historic synagogue, and pie, oh my! Jess & James wedding at the historic Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim was a true Charleston original. The location in downtown Charleston, SC lies in between King and Meeting Streets right across from posh Charleston Place hotel. The Taco Boy food truck greeted guests as they arrived to Passed Hors d’Oeurves by Hamby Catering in the courtyard of KKBE pre-ceremony. A traditional Jewish ceremony followed, with both Jess & James escorted down the aisle by their parents to the chuppah, which was made from a family quilt. Jess wore a silk J.Crew fucshia dress for the ceremony that was accented by a custom fascinator by Magar Hatworks. Post-ceremony the couple enjoyed some tacos privately during the yichud tradition, the Jess made a wardrobe change into another J.Crew stunner, this time in melon chiffon. Beer and margaritas flowed during the reception to compliment the three types of tacos and chips and guac. The cheery tables were decorated with ‘stache-graced straws, flowers made from maps (a nod to James’s travels in the Navy- he also wore custom cuff links and tie clips bearing a map of Charleston), billy buttons in pink and melon-hued glass jars, and challah. Sugar Bakeshop filled the dessert table not with wedding cake, but pies of every flavor and cookie jars filled with yummy flavors like molasses and oatmeal cranberry. Jess & James’ wedding was the perfect going away party for their move to Hawaii, and summed up their personality as a couple to a tee.”
