Southern Inspired Spring Wedding at Lowndes Grove

If you could win an award for prettiest dock in all of the South, the beauty at Lowndes Grove would surely take first prize. It’s stunning and Dana Cubbage has the pictures to prove it. But it only gets better my friends. What starts on the dock, moves into an all out classic southern affair crafted by MOD Events. Find so much more of this tented beauty in the full gallery.


From Dana Cubbage PhotographyWhitney + Alex were married on 2/28/2014. Whitney’s vision for a classy, elegant, Southern-inspired spring wedding was brought to life by Kala of MOD Events and it was a truly stunning celebration at one of my all-time faves, Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston SC. Beautiful florals by Kala were displayed in vintage silver tea pots and containers. Burlap table numbers added a touch of rustic flair, as did the sprigs of cotton that were carefully placed throughout the wedding design. The groom and groomsmen wore fashionable Brackish Bowties (a personal favorite of mine) and their cotton boutonnieres were accented with Guinea Hen feathers – a special touch added by the bride’s mother, who also did the calligraphy for the place cards + invitation suite. I absolutely love personal touches like that!

After a beautiful First Look at Lowndes Grove, Whitney + Alex were married at St. Luke’s Church in downtown Charleston. After the ceremony, they arrived back at Lowndes Grove in a vintage Rolls Royce which was so classy + elegant… and provided for great photos!! Joined by their closest family and friends, Whitney + Alex danced the night away to the amazing sounds of Soul Fish. The dance floor was packed all night and they absolutely killed it! At the end of the night, Whitney + Alex exited through sparklers and made their getaway on a boat. Simply amazing :)

Modern Nautical Kiawah Island Resort Wedding

There’s something for everyone in this gem from Virgil Bunao. Greens for days for the golf-lovers, soft beaches and sweeping views of Kiawah Island, nautical touches atop the linens from BBJ, modern chevron detailing, a gatsby-esque cake, classic bits throughout and a rad dance party courtesy of East Coast Entertainment. All together, it works so beautifully and it comes as no surprise with Luke Wilson behind the planning. See the film from Life Stage Films and hit up the gallery for even more!

Golf Resort

From Virgil Bunao Photography… Amy and Brian sought out South Carolina as their wedding destination and it was a no-brainer when they decided to select The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island as their backdrop. The views are amazing, the sea breeze is an added bonus, and feeling like you’re in total seclusion while you’re reciting your wedding vows in front of your loved ones is priceless. To pay homage to the beautiful surroundings, Amy and Brian chose to go with a fun, nautical theme of navy and fuchsia pink; with a soft white mix of hydrangea-and-rose centerpieces that balanced out the color choices. They carried this palette to their wedding party as the gentlemen looked dapper in blue and the ladies looked stunning in pink.

Sunny Seaside Engagement Session + WIUP

We’ve closed the book on another week, lovelies! But before you head out for some summertime happiness, we wanted to put you in the right head space for frolicking with this bright and sunny engagement session. There’s a whole gallery of bliss-filled photos from Julie Livingston Photography for you to soak in. So keep scrolling, enjoy your weekend, and don’t miss the discounts and giveaways at the end!


From Julie Livingston Photography After their wedding, Sarah and Eddie dream of one day living in the beautiful Old Village of Mount Pleasant, SC, just over the Cooper River from Charleston. I have to admit its my dream too. With its old Oak trees creating tunnels over the roads and the warm ocean breeze in the air, its a neighborhood that anyone would be thrilled to call home. We both share a love for a few spots in the area including where Middle Street intersects Center Street and the endless beach at Station 18 on Sullivan’s Island. On a gorgeous and sunny Spring day, I met them in the Old Village and we started our “dream day” photo shoot.

We started out where Center St. meets Middle St. in the lovely Old Village and walked and laughed through the winding streets of picket fences and gorgeous light. The azaleas were in bloom so Eddie was quick to make a small bouquet for his bride. We then traveled to our favorite beach about 3 miles away on Sullivan’s Island where they danced in the soft waves. Eddie’s dad owns a vintage prop plane that has a special place in his heart so we ended the shoot on an airfield across town. I loved watching the love and laughter between these two. They are playful and fun and totally in love with one another. Their family and friends shared with me that the session captured their true love for one another. Sarah is a 5th grade teacher while Eddie is in medical device sales. But if you ask me…I think modeling could be their side job. They were a breeze to work with and I look forward to their December wedding in Pinehurst, NC among the greens of the golf courses and the black ties of the formal affair.
