Virgil Bunao is gracing us with his presence this morning and, per usual, we’re loving his authentic approach to this romantic Charleston wedding engagement. Bride-to-be Lauren radiated in a gorgeous lace gown she accented with a few bangles an a fabulous pair of heels, while Matthew rocked a classic button-down. The duo gallivanted around the Holy City, enjoying it’s Lowcountry charm, before wrapping things up by the water!
Our friends over at Southern Living recently released their annual Weddings publication and, as luck should have it, there’s a whole lot of Lowcountry loving going on! Our wonderful Charleston CVB has some prime real estate and a gorgeous coastal presence throughout the issue. One of our favorites, Charleston wedding vendorVirgil Bunao Photography is featured with Lindsay + Brad’s oh-so-lovely RiverOaks wedding. Not only will each copy provide you with a little dose of the coast we all love the most, it is also filled to the brim with the perfect Southern wedding details that we all love so dearly. Lucky for you gals, the team at Southern Living has decided to offer our Lowcountry readers ONE brand spanking new copy of their latest must-have Southern weddings Bible! Interested in scoring a copy? That’s what I thought you’d say. To win, just head over to our facebook page, give us a ‘like’ and leave us a comment telling us how badly you need to have this beauty! The winner will be announced next Friday!
If you’re in the mood for some loveliness that just won’t quit, then I’m quite certain this little Virgil Bunao number will do just the trick. The effortless fashion shoot took place downtown at the historic Thomas Bennett House where the crew at Out of Hand created some amazing headpieces to top off gorgeous Leanna‘s chic looks. Lauren Moser was on hand to handle hair and make up, and I must say I would love to have her talents included in my morning routine. All and all, we can’t get enough of this all-star cast!
I’m so glad we get to close the week with this little Lowcountry gem at Pepper Plantation! Jennifer + Mike rounded up a talented group of Charleston wedding vendors to pull off their December extravaganza starting with the amazing design team at Sweetgrass Eventsand floral creations by Wildflowers Inc. Seriously, isn’t Jennifer’s bouquet is insane? They left the task of capturing all the details to the superb Virgil Bunao, while the gals from Sweetgrass Events executed everything to perfection. Tell me you don’t love every minute of this!
Ladies, we’ve got another new, Lowcountry venue on our hands, so let’s get started gawking over it’s coastal charm! The Sewee Preserve opened its doors this year and is already booking weddings for 2012 and beyond. Located just outside of Charleston, in Awendaw, South Carolina, this breathtaking wedding venue consists of a 500-acre conservation development dedicated to preserving the serenity and natural beauty of our beloved Lowcountry…so you know what that means, gorgeous saltwater marshes, jaw-dropping Oak trees and that soft, coastal breeze that we’ve come to love at a Charleston wedding.
The property offers an array of ceremony and receptions options that will be available to you from 10am until midnight on the day of your event. It includes 1,000 square feet of covered area, an over-sized brick fireplace, Southern-style porches, bocce ball court and horseshoe pit and a 50-acre freshwater lake with dock. Sounds like heaven, right? Well lucky for us, Virgil Bunao Photography and Ooh! Events teamed up to show us what the Sewee Preserve’s all about (and Lord knows we love when these two talents collaborate!) So, check out this fabulous, new Charleston wedding venue…
I know this is a totally biased comment, but I just can’t help but love a beautiful South Carolina wedding. Lowcountry brides always do a swoon-worthy job of tying together their appreciation of friends and family with their timeless style and ability to have a good time. Their weddings always make for a memorable Southern affair…and Kristen + Taylor’s classic Providence, South Carolina bash was no different! Photographed by the one-and-only, Virgil Bunao, the couple treated guests to a gorgeous tented reception with an open bar, an amazing spread from Creative Catering and lively tunes from DJ Master G that kept the party going til the wee hours of the morning!
