From Aaron And Jillian PhotographyWhat’s grander than having a destination wedding at a beautiful historic Charleston plantation home on the Ashley River that also happens to be one of the top wedding venues in America according to Brides Magazine?! Well, not much I think?! And to make it more awesome in this case, Dan & Anna’s first trip they ever took together was to our charming little town of Charleston and the first time Dan told her he loved her was right here!! It’s no wonder they chose it to start their first day of forever together!! I love when our couples chose Charleston not just for it’s charm and beauty, but because it’s special to them and their love story, and these two are no exception! One of my favorite things about their story is that Dan is actually stationed with the army in Italy right now and they’ve been writing, skyping and calling each other through their entire engagement! There’s something so intentional to me about long distance relationships! Plus, Dan didn’t fly into Charleston until a couple days before the wedding, so you can imagine the build up of excitement and giddyness to see each other! I feel like you can see it in their eyes in almost every photo! …He’s so proud to be her husband and she feels so safe and loved in his arms! It sounds cheesy, but it was SO apparent and so adorable! Since Anna was doing the planning on her own, she enlisted the help of the ever so talented Southern Protocol to bring her winter wonderland wedding to fruition and boy did they nail it with beautiful Christmas trees, twinkling lights, lanterns hung from live oak trees, beautiful winter florals, chinchilla throw blankets, elegant lounge furniture…and 3 CAKES!!!! Yes, 3 beautiful cakes! We loved it and had the best time following these two around all night and documenting their beautiful wedding! Enjoy some of our favorites from the day!

From the beautiful Bride… Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and then some. It was a misty, warm fall day in Charleston, SC surrounded by our closest friends and family. When we started planning, our goal was to create a day that represented our relationship and all the wonderful memories we shared in our 5 years of dating. We wanted it to be authentic and real to who we are and our families.

It was important to us to incorporate sentimental items throughout the day. The majority of my wedding day jewelry was borrowed, including a bracelet from both of our mothers and our 4 grandmothers. I was honored to carry a family bible from 1949, that has been carried by every married woman on Jordan’s side of the family in their weddings. Our rings were carried in a wooden box made especially for us in Uganda, from where my god son/ring bearer was adopted.

Every detail was thought out to share our story with our friends and family. I’m a photographer and naturally a visual person so what better reason to create custom seating cards with each guests’ picture. All they had to do was find their face to find their seat! At each table sat a wine bottle as part of the centerpiece. Throughout our engagement, Jordan and I drank each of these bottles to celebrate a special occasion. We saved them all and had labels made explaining each of these celebrations. As guests left the reception, we wanted to share one of our favorite travel moments together. We are huge coffee drinkers and visited a wonderful coffee plantation on our trip to Costa Rica in 2012. Everyone received a coffee cup with a small bag of our favorite beans from the plantation.

During planning, everything felt like a DIY project because every aspect had such a personal touch. My favorite project was the custom video booth I built with my dad. Everyone has a photo booth or guest book to sign, but I wanted something different – a digital guest book with videos from guests. I purchased an app designed to take multiple videos and my dad and I designed a booth around that! It was so much fun watching the videos on our honeymoon.

Throughout the day, there were so many amazing moments. Jordan’s favorites included our first look and seeing me, his beautiful bride (in his words) for the first time, and when he learned of the surprise honeymoon stop at Pebble Beach to golf! Besides actually marrying Jordan, my favorite moments included seeing Jordan for the first time in his fancy tux he designed and opening the custom Mrs. G necklace he had made in his handwriting. I will always hold dear the more private moments of our prayer circle over our marriage before we walked down the aisle and the private vows we shared with champagne after our ceremony.

Not everything went as planned, but it all happened just the way it was meant to. We had a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony, full of love followed by a night of dancing with our favorite people in the world. I wish we could get married every year and celebrate just like we did September 27, 2014!

From Dana Cubbage Weddings… Whenever Intrigue Design + Events and Loluma team up together with a wedding design, I’m always left utterly speechless. Tracey + Colin’s gorgeous wedding was no exception. My jaw was literally on the floor all day long, photographing all of the amazing design elements of the day. Chelsye, Sha Sha and their respective teams bring so much creativity to the table. They are just so talented and a match made in heaven!

Tracey’s neutral french vanilla palette choice was the perfect anchor for the design, with intense pops of color brought in through the florals. Huge hanging baskets filled with greenery hung from inside the tent, while delicate string lighting created beautiful ambiance under the tent – especially once the sun went down. Rustic wooden cross-back chairs and the wine barrel bar provided the perfect amount of Southern charm, while the boxwood wall of mirrors adorned with table assignments brought in an element of old world glamour. DJ Nick of EPIC Charleston kept the dance floor packed all night – this was definitely a party crowd and I had a blast taking photos on the dance floor. At the end of the night, Tracey + Colin made their way through a tunnel of sparklers before hopping on a rickshaw together.

In a nod to Colin’s career as a chef and their shared love of food, the pair made sure to include lots of special food elements in their day – including a special pickle bar, special salt dishes on the tables, and a surprise visit from King of Pops!

From Dana Cubbage WeddingsCenturies old oak trees draped in romantic Spanish Moss provided the perfect backdrop for this winter styled shoot. In a quiet corner of Magnolia Plantation in Charleston SC, Amy Long of The Lovely Find crafted a beautiful Victorian-inspired set, complete with vintage silver flatware + mismatched grey + white china that really set the tone for this silver, blush + cranberry shoot. Simplicity in the details really allowed the bride’s gown to shine. The bride wore two gowns for this shoot – the first being Modern Trousseau’s Honor, part of the Fall 2015 collection. This dress features a French lace bodice and a dramatic pleated skirt with a playful high/low hemline and elongated train. This dress, paired with a romantic floral crown by Eclectic Sage, would be the perfect choice for a romantic ceremony under the oaks. Her second gown was Modern Trousseau’s Storm, another gown from the Fall 2015 collection. This gown features gorgeous French Alencon lace, a strapless bodice and asymmetrical lace + tulle skirt – the perfect gown for this moody Victorian shoot! We envision this as her “party” dress – something she changes into after a quiet + intimate ceremony with her groom.

Bridesmaids wore gorgeous blush Monique Lhuillier dresses from Rent The Runway and hair pieces from Percy Handmade. Carrie McLeod, owner of Paper Dolls, did a fabulous job with hair + makeup, while Ines Aranguren of Sky’s The Limit Custom Cakes created an absolutely STUNNING silver cake, inspired by the vintage silver flatware on the table. Heather of Eclectic Sage created gorgeous bouquets + centerpieces for the shoot – I absolutely LOVE the bride’s asymmetrical bouquet that mimicked her gown’s asymmetrical skirt. I thought that was brilliant! Also, Heather created a floral pocket square – a super cool alternative to the boutonniere that I’ve never seen before and thought it was really awesome!! Amy + Heather utilized some of the native Spanish Moss to drape the bride + groom’s chairs at the table – a fun touch and a nod to the Southern locale.

From Ooh! EventsThere was a specific color palette and images that Amanda and Ian liked, but mostly they loved the area around Magnolia. The beauty of the space was so special we wanted to enhance it while maximizing our design choices. Amanda and Ian met online. Amanda is an OBGYN and Ian is an attorney. As they both have highly demanding jobs, dating took a back seat. Ian messaged Amanda one night, which led to more conversing, which led to coffee. The rest is history. He proposed on a trip to Ireland, Ian popped the question toward the tail end of the trip. It was a total surprise. Amanda wrote each name tag on the cute little jars of jordan almonds that were the place cards. It was a great touch!

From Ooh! EventsMegan and Chris came into each other’s lives at just the right time. They tied the knot on her sister and brother in law’s anniversary, because Megan felt like it would be “good luck.” And it was clear that no two better friends ever shared their vows at the Wedding Oak at the Legare Waring House. Megan had the date in mind, and found the venue around the day. She enlisted Ooh! Events to help with the whole event from finding the date and vendors to executing the show. It was a family effort and it was evident what these two meant to their friends and family as many of the services for the day were donated. And the cross and signs were made by the bride’s brother in law, who also wrote a special song he played acoustically for her to walk down the aisle. We hope the pictures enchant you as much as they do us!
