Elegant Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding

This elegant soiree from Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay is one of those weddings that I scanned through about a hundred times. And every time, I found something new and oh-so-lovely. Starting with the Bride’s ah-mazing Monique Lhuillier dress, followed up by that unbelievable ceremony tree and how about a little bit of fun with some heart sunglasses? It’s a gem of a wedding and it’s all right here. Don’t miss the amazing film from Hart To Hart Media!

From the Bride & Groom, Annie & Steve… Having never been the type to fantasize about “the big day,” we were both pretty clueless when we embarked on the wedding planning process. Venue? Color scheme? Cake? We were at a loss. But we knew at least this much–that we wanted the wedding to reflect us, both individually and as a couple. We wanted to feel ownership over the wedding by injecting our personalities and memories into the day. This is the guiding principle we looked to at each stage of the planning process.

Wanting to keep the decor bright and elegant with splashes of fun, we chose a predominantly white/neutral color scheme with bright pink/purple floral arrangements. We gave our guests heart-shaped sunglasses and kooky socks as favors, to help bring out everyone’s inner child. We displayed pictures of our parents’ and grandparents’ weddings, to honor their example and reflect the importance we place on family. Our cake toppers were a set of hand-painted wooden ducks, in keeping with Korean tradition. And we decided to exit on Razor scooters (despite the fact that neither of us had ever ridden one before) because we thought it’d be silly–and we love being silly.

The end result was a beautiful, exhilarating day that was deeply personal to both of us. We felt our handprints throughout the entire evening, which truly made the celebration feel like ours. We can’t thank our vendors and guests enough for having helped put together, document, and take part in our wedding. For two people who had never fantasized about it before, we now can’t stop reliving the day over and over in our heads.

Elegant Outdoor Charleston Wedding at the Legare Waring House

There isn’t a place on this planet like Charleston. And the weddings there? Perfection. They always seem to have this perfect blend of sophistication and sweet southern charm, and this beauty planned by RLE Charleston and captured by Brandon Lata Photography is the prettiest of examples. This gallery will have your jaw on the floor from the first image to the last, and you can see every last moment here.

From RLE CharlestonChristina and Brooks love the outdoors and of course fell in love with the magnificent beauty of the Alley of Oaks at Legare Waring. They wanted an intimate affair (they only had 63 guests) with soft muted colors and lots of candles focusing on the romantic setting of their surroundings. Guests were invited onto the property prior to the ceremony to get a chance to take in the beautiful surroundings before dark. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktail hour by the lagoon followed by seated dinner and dancing under the stars.

Rustic Southern Winter Wedding

I’ve decided that when it comes to weddings, Virgil Bunao can do no wrong. Period. Anything his camera captures turns to gold and this Boone Hall Plantation is, dare I say, among his best work yet. Brought to life by Sweetgrass Events by Stephanie Gibbs and Ooh! Events, each image is more pin-worthy than the last, so let’s wrap up the chitty chat and head straight for the goods, shall we?

From Virgil Bunao… I think Boone Hall Plantation has to be one of my most favorite places. Each time I’ve been blessed to shoot a wedding down there, I always get a boost of anticipation and it heightens as I near the entrance to their illustrious “Avenue of Oaks”. I make a point to drive way under the speed limit, just to absorb the oaks’ natural wonder. No matter how many times I’m there, I’m still blown away.

When I found out Dawn and Devin chose Boone Hall to celebrate their big day, I started scribbling mental notes of each location of this venue to take bride and groom shots, and how this beautiful winter wedding would look among the spindly oaks, the great manor, and the Ashley River in the backdrop. On that Charleston winter day, I arrived to capture those special “getting gussied up” moments with Dawn and her girls and then we headed out for “first look” shots. I swear, I have never seen a groom look so enamored with his bride than Devin. From that point on, I started photographing a new budding romance: the deep love of a husband and wife.

Boone Hall Plantation has been around for quite a while now and with my fingers crossed, I hope they’ll stay put. The house and those trees have seen centuries of things and now, they’re privy to the start of beautiful new lives. Dawn and Devin are a part of Boone Hall’s history now. And I’m thankful to be part of it, too.
