From The Bride… Alan and I live in Washington, D.C., where we met, but we knew for our wedding that we wanted to welcome our friends and family to my home state of South Carolina. Hospitality is important to us, and downtown Charleston was the perfect place to host the weekend festivities.

Our palette featured gold and ivory, along with shades of peach and pops of light blue. Our paper products had touches of lace to mimic my gown. We opted not to have a wedding party, but we got ready on the big day surrounded by our close friends.

We had a traditional church wedding, complete with liturgy that we helped craft. We loved the sanctuary’s vaulted blue and white ceiling and the churchyard’s garden walkway. Our friend Taylor, who was a seminary classmate of mine, officiated. Alan’s mother and father escorted him down the aisle, and my mom walked with me—a poignant moment for us since both my father and stepfather are deceased.

We had a fall wedding, but it was unusually cold the day we got married—the earliest snow on record in the state! Thankfully, the sun started shining through the clouds as we left the church and walked around the corner to our reception at Hibernian Hall. Guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres in the rotunda before joining us upstairs in the ballroom.

We wanted our reception to be one big dinner party, followed by lots of dancing. Our guests sat at long farm tables and the Lowcountry meal was served family-style. One must-have on the menu: pulled-pork barbecue with Carolina mustard sauce, which was a staple at family gatherings when I was growing up. For dessert, we served assorted pies alongside Berger cookies—a chocolate specialty from Baltimore, near when Alan grew up.

Alan plays percussion in a bluegrass band with a few friends. They have played at weddings in the D.C. area, so it was special to have them perform during dinner at our wedding. Alan joined them for a few songs before our first dance. Then our friend Jordan worked his DJ skills to keep the dancing going the rest of the night. In honor of Alan’s drumming talent, we exited to the sounds of our guests playing noisemakers, bells, and maracas.

From Dana Cubbage WeddingsIt’s always so humbling when someone who works in the wedding industry asks me to photograph their wedding. Katie works for Good Food Catering here in Charleston and when she reached out to me last year and expressed an interest in having me document her beautiful wedding day, I was truly honored. Katie’s vision of a vintage chic outdoor wedding at the magnificent Legare Waring House was brought to life by Stephanie Gibbs Events, who not only coordinated the wedding day, but also did all of the beautiful florals! There were so many personal, handmade details woven throughout the design – a nod to Katie’s DIY nature and love for all things rustic. Wooden farm tables, antique lace table runners, colorful floral arrangements, wooden X-back chairs, a vintage sewing table to display all of their amazing desserts, and beautiful antique china completed the look and it was truly breathtaking. Katie + Reed said “I Do!” in the Avenue of Oaks, beneath a fabulous glass chandelier that was strung above them in the trees. Katie + Reed opted for an open-air reception and, beneath sparkling cafe lights, Katie + Reed danced the night away with their closest friends and family before departing through bubbles and into a vintage 1970 convertible.

Charleston Weekend Getaway Engagement

The one time I visited Charleston, it poured buckets. So, until I experience it’s charm and beauty again, I’m living vicariously through engagements like this one from Lucy Cuneo Photography—complete with cute moments from A-Z. It’s a full on weekend getaway including a sunset walk, a gelato date and a romantic night on the town. Adorable? I think so.

From Lucy Cuneo PhotographyMorgan & Jacob love to visit Charleston and it has become particularly special to them since last November when Jacob proposed here. They love so much about the city, it was too tricky to pick just one spot to photograph. We planned a ‘getaway’ weekend packed with their favorite activities: a sunset walk on Sullivan’s Island, gelato from the best spot in town, a downtown walk and drinks at their favorite restaurant, the Ordinary!
