William Aiken House wedding couple kissing portrait

This romance began during a night out with friends and may have entailed lighting their hands on fire. – to clarify, the couple took a Statue of Liberty shot. Brittany’s and Mark’s fiery beginning led to an even hotter wedding. Their August nuptials were held on one of the hottest days of summer with the heat index reaching 106. But scorching weather didn’t stop the celebration. After a ceremony at the First Baptist Church of Charleston, Brittany and Mark headed to the William Aiken House to dine on cuisine by FISH and rock out to The Mighty Kicks. After a whirlwind weekend having a destination wedding in Charleston, they boarded a plane to Paris to start their next adventure as wife and husband. Congratulations to Brittany and Mark!

McCrady's Restaurant wedding on The Wedding Row

Excited to see Brandi’s and Adam’s vintage-styled wedding at McCrady’s Restaurant featured on The Wedding Row!

Spring  in Charleston means blooming azaleas, oyster roasts, and newlyweds. After being paired together in a wedding party three years ago, Brandi and Adam were inseparable. The couple fell in love with Charleston when they celebrated their two year anniversary in the Holy City and later decided to have a destination wedding here. Their wedding is a picturesque ethereal chic soiree with vintage inspired style and hues of white, pink, and gold. McCrady’s Restaurant is in the heart of Downtown Charleston and embodies the classic architecture of the historic South. Congratulations to Brandi and Adam!

Boone Hall Plantation Wedding on the WeddingWire

 

 

Excited to see Brooke’s and Matt’s modern vintage wedding at Boone Hall Plantation featured on another great blog: WeddingWire. Their wedding is also featured on newsstands right now in Charleston Style & Design. Snag a copy and see the beautiful Charleston weddings featured in the new issue.

Brooke and Matt held a summer wedding at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation. The bride wore a champagne-hued Rosecliff Gown from BHDLN. She complimented the free-spirited nature of her dress with a flower crown. The ceremony processional was accompanied by a ukulele player, immediate family and most of the wedding party walked to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” while the bride walked down the aisle to The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” The theme was a fusion of Southern rustic with historic elements of Charleston. Instead of table numbers, the mixture of round and family style tables were named after streets in Downtown Charleston. The bouquets are a mixture of craspedia, succulents, white hydrangea, gyp, and yellow or peach roses. Several of the same flowers are used to adorn tabletops while nestled in either mason jars or an eclectic assortment of vases. The signature drink of the evening was the Lowcountry Mojito – Firefly Vodka, Mint, Simple Syrup and Soda. Guests formally dined on on petite filet mignon chased with a late night snack of miniature chicken and waffles. At the close of the evening, guests released sky lanterns at the dock followed by the wedding party and close friends boarding a white school bus to continue the celebration in Downtown Charleston. Congratulations to Brooke and Matt!

Bernadette & Josh: Seabrook Island Club {Charleston Wedding Photography}08.30.14

Seabrook Island Club wedding beach portrait

For Bernadette and Josh, the beach and water is a natural part of their lives. Josh is a fisherman and Bernadette enjoys kayaking and jet skiing. Their first date was in Murrells Inlet and Josh proposed on the beach in Garden City. This theme carried into their wedding with a destination beachside wedding at Seabrook Island. The Seabrook Island club offered a traditional banquet room for the reception while hosting the ceremony at an oceanside pavilion. Pulling beach hues into the color palette, khaki suits and blue bridesmaids’ dresses reflected their inspiration. They added an accent of fuchsia for a rich pop. Congratulations to Bernadette and Josh!

Isle of Palms wedding on A Lowcountry Wedding

 

Excited to see Rachel’s and Doug’s wedding featured on A Lowcountry Wedding!

Rachel’s and Doug’s had coastal-country themed destination wedding. The couple opted for a first look and portraits in Downtown Charleston before gathering with friends and family at their beach wedding on Isle of Palms. Afterwards, everyone was treated to brunch catered by MOSAIC. Their country garden reception featured a rustic family-style table adorned with sky blue and lemon chiffon painted mason jars and eclectic floral arrangements. This wedding is the epitome of why Charleston is a perfect destination wedding location – with its beaches, historic downtown, and plenty of culinary and entertainment options, couples and their family and friends can enjoy a vacation topped with a lovely wedding celebration.
