From Dana Cubbage WeddingsBefore the torrential rains moved into the Charleston area during the first weekend in October, Charleston residents Katrina and Eoin (pronounced “Owen”) said “I do!” at picturesque Lowndes Grove Plantation in South Carolina. We were fortunate enough to photograph Katrina and Eoin’s sweet First look under one of the majestic oaks at Lowndes Grove, complete with a chandelier hanging from above! We were also able to do a ton of portraits and most of the bridal party photos outside before the rain officially began shortly before their ceremony. This is precisely why doing a first look on your wedding day can be so helpful… without a first look, Katrina and Eoin wouldn’t have been able to have ANY photos outside because by the time their ceremony was over, it was pouring rain!

I absolutely loved the wine and berry inspired color palette and, as usual, the ladies of Pure Luxe Bride put together an absolutely stunning event. Bridesmaids wore shades of berry and purple, which paired well with the blush, pink, white and purple bouquets by WildFlowers Inc. Gold accents pulled everything together and the reception space was simply spectacular! Katrina and Eoin said “I do!” under the tent, as the rain created a soft roar on the tent roof. After a formal sit-down dinner, guests joined the newlyweds on the dance floor, where they remained most of the night. As a tribute to Eoin’s Irish heritage, they kicked off the dance party with an Irish song sing-a-long right after dinner and it was so much fun!! In lieu of a sparkler exit, they opted to pass out and wave white towels while “Sandstorm” played on the dancefloor… a nod to their alma mater, University of South Carolina.

Classic Blush + Gold Wedding in Charleston

I’ve always wished I could get away with throwing around “y’all” in conversation, but to a Midwest girl it just feels off. So today I’m abandoning my roots to live vicariously through this Charleston bride who’s a Southern girl all the way. Along with her handsome beau and Ivy Robinson Events, she planned a classic-as-can-be celebration at the Lowndes Grove Plantation and Corbin Gurkin captured behind the camera. See more in The Vault and don’t miss Heart Stone Films’ highlight below!

From Ivy Robinson Events… Jordan and Schuyler met at a friend’s wedding (who were also in their wedding!) They dated  for 3.5 years and were engaged May 16th, 2014 at Litchfield Beach. They took their dog, Lolly, on walk down the beach and he dropped the ring (on purpose) in the sand.

Charleston was always one of their favorite cities and close to her family and friends in Charlotte and his in South Carolina. Their style was “classic with an edge” and their wedding monogram was blend of both personalities. He is a big hunter so horns were branded into the logo.

Also, since all the groomsmen are hunters the guys wore Brackish Pins in lieu of traditional bouts, which are made locally in Charleston. Boho Ink out of Charlotte custom painted every bridesmaid’ initials on hangers and they were packaged with custom designed jewelry from Kristin Hayes.

At the reception, the Photo Booth backdrop was designed with horns coming out of it as a hunting nod. And to add a lil laugh we had a 6 ft cutouts of Jordan and Schuyler highlighting their rivalries of Clemson/USC + Canada/USA and Lolly the dog was wearing a jersey of the Groom’s grandfather’s that played for a Canadian Hockey Team

Elegant Autumn Plantation Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Perks of this pretty lil’ inspo? Glamour that goes for days thanks to Theo Milo Photography and Loluma.

A grandiose vision brought to life, and we’ve got it waiting for you in THE VAULT!

From LolumaThe style shoot entitled “Entangled” was inspired by our selected venue, Runnymede Plantation. The property’s rich history is apparent through the remains of a house burned and rebuilt three times since the early 1700’s, as well as the more than one thousand year old Angel Oak in the center of the property. This iconic tree seemed the perfect haven to embrace a post nuptial, intimate gathering and dinner. It’s grandiose and twisted branches creating the perfect environment for both the enchanting dining table and the opulent groom’s lounge and bourbon bar.

To set off the style, a collection of textures and materials were utilized, ranging from light drift wood tables and Marie Antoinette chairs, mixed with luminescent crystal and light grey/lavender laces, bronze metallics and white washed iron. Adding pops of deep burgandy discernible in the bride’s dramatic make up, flowers and lounge area rug. We utilized the grand oak to its fullest, hanging focal points over each area surrounding the massive trunk on all sides.

The long dining table, set perfectly under the canopy of branches so long, they fall to the ground, was set under crystal bird cages and a sweeping drape of lace. The twisted bronze and silver flatware, cut work ceramic chargers and lavender lace napkins accented with vintage style brooches, set up each place setting perfectly. The centrescapes in vintage silver, depict a garden whimsy of kale, ivy, and confederate jasmine vines accented with maiden hair fern. Entwined in the greens flowers in creams and deep reds included stock, kangaroo paw, agapanthus, green cymbidium orchids and complimenting garden roses.

Additional areas housed around the perimeter of the tree included unique industrial style lighted letters spelling out LOVE and a glass top for displaying the bronze tiered cake. Accenting this area hung a lace drum shade chandelier and a floating gold framed mirror. Walking further around guests discovered the groom’s lounge and bourbon bar, featuring stylized flax colored, tufted lounge pieces set atop a deep red, ornate area rug.

The bride and groom’s attire pulled everything together perfectly. The bride wore a Sarah Janks gown that was a natural flowing, drop waist fit with shimmering beaded silk chiffon and pin tuck. A gathering of delicate appliqué flowers set off the natural surroundings and punctuated the deep V-neckline. The groom complimented with a Brooks Brothers Suit tuxedo in classic black and a modern, clean fit. The bride carrying a lush petite bouquet of tricolor gerberas, bouvardia, spray roses and a center of hydrangea accent with bupleurum, while the groom complimented her with a boutonniere of a single rose, veronica and wax flower.

The romance and mystery of the property became even more apparent as the night fell and the decorative lighting took effect.
