Romantic Charleston Plantation Wedding

From the moments of anticipation leading up to the ceremony, to the first kiss, to the touching toasts, this southern soiree captured by Light Cannon Films wasn’t the least bit dampened by the stormy weather. The smiles shine bright and a palpable kind of love fills every corner. There’s even more in the gallery from Jennifer Bearden!

From Light Cannon FilmsApril and Tyler Roberts’ Charleston wedding was filled with laughter and tears. The day began with torrential downpours and rolling thunder. As the girls got ready inside Old Wide Awake Plantation, April was reminding everyone that the day will be beautiful no matter what, and that she would still be married, rain or shine.

As luck would have it, the sun came through just in time for their breathtaking ceremony under the historic oak trees. A small drizzle during their photo hour made for adorable umbrella pictures with the newly married Roberts’, and the weather the rest of the day was incredible. The lighting was in our favor, a filmmaker’s dream. It was a fairytale.

April and Tyler didn’t stop smiling the whole day, even when they were wiping away their tears. Their friends and family gave beautiful speeches, supportive prayers, and celebrated joyfully at the reception. Their wedding was a dream-come-true for everyone who went, including Light Cannon Films.

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?

Summer Pastel Wedding at Daniel Island Club

If pretty gets your heart going the way it gets mine, I’m here to warn you to sit down. This Charleston wedding from Jennings King Photography is pretty embodied, with it’s pastel color palette, the rustic touches, and the ceremony moments after the rain stopped and the sun popped through the clouds.


After my husband Collin proposed to me, I visited a few venues in the Chicago land area even though I had a secret wish to be married in Charleston. When I didn’t fall in love with any of the venues in Chicago, I shared my secret with Collin and he was just as excited about the potential idea of being married in the Low Country! When I saw Daniel Island Club, it was love at first sight! I knew it had to be the place for our wedding.

Daniel Island Club was the perfect venue for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. We planned for a ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the beautiful marsh. We also prepared for a sunny and hot summer day in late June with fans for ceremony programs, parasols, and groomsmen in shades. It turned out dark clouds followed by a lot of rain rolled in about an hour before the ceremony began. We moved the ceremony under a covered patio, which turned out to be just a wonderful. It was a smaller area, so everyone sat close together and it made the setting feel very intimate. In fact, the rain stopped and the sun peeked through the clouds right before I was about to walk down the aisle. My mom surprised us at the end of our ceremony with a release of a dozen butterflies – representing “new beginnings”. It was such a special surprise!

I knew I wanted our wedding to have a rustic-vintage feel to it. We incorporated this with touches of burlap, twine, and rustic signage. When I couldn’t decide on wedding colors, I had the wedding party wear neutrals and brought in many colors through the flowers. I was so happy with the flowers put together by Branch Design Studio. The variety of flowers used in the bouquets created bright pops of color and texture. The flowers on the tables were in mason jars and vintage bottles surrounded by mercury glass votives. It was exactly what I had hoped for!

The bridesmaids wore one of their gifts – robes from Plum Pretty Sugar while we enjoyed the day getting ready at Daniel Island Club. I couldn’t wait to put on my “something new” – my dress! Along with the dress, I wore a very special “something old” – my 95 year old grandmother’s opal ring. My mom and older sister also wore the ring on their wedding day. Due to health reasons, my grandmother couldn’t attend the wedding, so it meant a lot to have a piece of her with me that day.

Collin and I exchanged letters before we saw each other for our first look. It was our version of writing our own vows before we said traditional ones during the ceremony. Collin and I decided we wanted to do a first look and share time together before the ceremony. I’m so glad we did – it was one of my favorite moments of the day!

We celebrated and danced all night long! Guests drank “His & Her” cocktails served in mason jars and dressed up with silly props in the photo booth. We exited through a tunnel of sparklers to our golf cart “getaway car”. – it was the perfect end to a perfect day! We couldn’t have been happier!
