From Caroline RoAshley and Jason’s wedding was one for the books! When I met them in Savannah at a private plantation months earlier in which they included their two dogs and bunny (a cat hs been added since), I knew their wedding would be a hit!

My favorite part about the day was how involved both sides of the family were. I met both Ashley and Jason’s mom at their engagement session and loved how you could tell they had already hit it off as friends.

Come the wedding, the two were just as involved and excited. Jason’s mom monogrammed everything you see and worked relentless to make sure it all looked perfect. Ashley’s mom had a huge hand over so many of the design elements, making sure everything came together perfectly as she was in Charleston while Ashley and Jason were in Savannah.

And when it came time for me to arrive on the wedding day, Ashley was beyond ready! She had all her details perfectly laid out and had sent items over to Jason’s for the same. And although the two and their families cared about details, I could tell they also cared about straight up having fun! Their first dance surprised everyone as a perfectly executed ball room dance (smooth, not stiff and practiced) and then when they both got on stage toward the end of the night to sing the night away. How can you ask for a better couple?

South Carolina Lowcountry Wedding at Oldfield

I am loving the southern charm that has been popping up on my desk lately. Weddings like this one where you can practically see the smiles, feel the warmth and laughter, and feel the sweet Southern sun. Mira Photographs captured it all, from the beautiful cotton-filled bouquets to the sunset kisses, and it’s all sitting pretty right here.

Though we met in New York City, Carter and I were both born and raised in coastal towns in the South–he hails from Virginia Tidewater area and I grew up in the South Carolina Lowcountry–and we knew we wanted our wedding to feel like a wonderful party that could have been thrown in either of our childhood backyards. The venue also needed to be close to the water, to have at least one grand oak tree on the property, and to have catering options that reflected our favorite foods from growing up. Oldfield in Okatie — just 15 minutes from where I grew up — filled every one of our must-need requirements and surpassed our expectations as a venue. It is both stunningly beautiful and, like us, can either be dressed up or dressed down. We chose to dress it down a bit to match the relaxed feel of our relationship, and let the location’s natural beauty take center stage. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on how amazing the staff there is. By the end of our wedding weekend they all felt like family, especially the Events Director, Dani.

Family is extremely important to both of us, and we were sure to include them and our memories with them in as many aspects of the day as we could. The inspiration for the decor and details at came from those important family memories. We chose to use cotton as one of our main floral elements because my family’s farm grows cotton in the Fall and I spent many weekends driving through cotton fields, admiring how beautiful they were. Each of the stems was hand-picked by my family, including my 85-year-old grandmother. We wanted the floral arrangements to feel natural, so we stuck to a green and white color scheme with a few pops of yellow. My aunt graciously took on all of the floral duties, from the bouquets to the centerpieces and even the escort card display, which included rosemary picked from her garden.

Choosing our menu was definitely the easiest part of the planning process for us. We knew we wanted to serve southern staples such as pulled pork and collard greens, but we also chose to set up tables with a lowcountry boil — shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes boiled with Old Bay seasoning — like my dad made for family events growing up. In addition to picking all that cotton, my grandmother also made her famous 6-layer chocolate cake and miniature key lime and pecan pies for the dessert table.

Carter and his groomsmen all grew up playing in the Colonial Williamsburg Fife & Drum Corps, and we chose to forgo some of the more traditional wedding elements like a cake cutting and garter toss so they could play a few tunes to open the reception and introduce our guests to Carter’s second greatest love, fife and drum. Our cake topper was also inspired by one of Carter’s passions: the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Every bride should be able to have a wedding that they can truly describe as one of the best days of her life and our celebration at Oldfield was definitely the best day of my life so far. The intimacy of the small guest list meant everyone who was there felt like a member of our extended family and having our family members contribute so much to our wedding made it feel as though it was a true family celebration. It’s hard not to look at the pictures and relive how amazing it was every single day.

Sparkling Sequin Winter Wedding

There’s nothing better than a winter wedding, in my book. And while I might be a tiny bit biased as a January bride myself, it’s soirees like this that truly prove my point. Designed in the hands of Meagan Warren, it’s layered with gold sequins, rows of candles and white florals for as far as the eye can see. Landon Jacob Productions captured the gallery and don’t miss the film from Palmetto Digital.

From Meagan Warren WeddingsAmanda and Michael started planning their wedding in January 2013. They knew they wanted a candle-lit Winter wedding with touches of gold and neutrals throughout. Amanda hired Meagan Warren as her wedding planner with no other vendor booked. Amanda had no idea where she wanted to have her ceremony or reception. She was open to just about every suggestion Meagan offered… a dream bride.

We booked the historic 701 Whaley building to house her ceremony and reception that took place on Saturday, December 7, 2013. The ceremony was upstairs with the reception following downstairs on the first floor. Amanda wanted a neutral and champagne-toned color palette so she chose champagne dresses for the bridesmaids and black, floor-length dresses for her honorary bridesmaids. The groom and groomsmen wore classic, black tuxes.

Our vision was composed of simple classic florals under the glow of candlelight with white, ivory, champagne and a few very soft and tiny bits of blush hued blooms. Event colors also included soft beiges, khakis and touches of gold and metallic (e.g. sequin head table linen as well as on the bar and cake tables!)

The overall decor was comprised of crystal chandeliers, white soft draping, lots and lots of candles, gold Chivari chairs, custom linens from Connie Duglin and Creative Coverings, florals from the talented ladies of Fern Studio… all complimented by delicious food from Hudson’s Classic Catering. The night was highlighted by the bride and groom’s first dance, sung by local guitarist, Chase Asmer.

Flowers included blooms such as hydrangeas, french tulips, stock, garden roses, dahlias, sweet peas, ranunculus, queen anne’s lace, white astible, ruffled edge tulips, lisianthus, scabiosa, dusty miller, lambs ear, and eucalyptus.

This bridal party, by far, has been one of the most beautiful groups we have worked with, complete with a gorgeous bride and dashing groom. A winter wonderland!
