From the beautiful Bride… Will and I decided soon after our engagement that we wanted to be married at Kiawah Island where my parents have a home. We both wanted our friends and family to come and enjoy the opportunities for fun outdoor activities in a more relaxed, casual setting. Because we were hoping for picture perfect weather and because we had several friends with weddings already “on the books,” we set our wedding date for May 3, 2014. That made for a long engagement!

The wedding planning started right away, however. My parents interviewed and hired Ellen Robinson from WED in Charleston to help with the wedding planning process. She shared her amazing selection of vendors for flowers, cake, printed materials etc. All of whom began to work translating our verbal wishes into reality. In spite of graduating from law school, studying for and passing the bar exam and beginning my first job with a large law firm, I was able to put my “stamp of approval” on almost every decision made during the year. Throughout the whole process, I wanted to make sure everything was geared towards creating a celebration of our love, family, and community.

The color palate we chose was whites, ivory, blush, champagne, pinks to peach with touches of coral. The feel was romantic, loose arrangements with lots of movement in design. The types of flowers used were coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, silver dollar eucalyptus, peach dahlias, spray roses, tulips, elaeagnus and viburnum. And that was just the reception! For the outdoor ceremony Sara’s team assembled a wooden structure and covered it with a greenery and floral garland swag filled with eucalyptus, blown open roses, spray roses, tulips, pink jasmine vine among other seasonal blooms. Our guests would look through the structure to the Kiawah River beyond.

After much deliberation and maybe a second go around on the tasting we chose to have three different cakes. They would be displayed on beautiful carved wooden stands surrounded by greenery. The center cake would be larger and the pale peach butter cream icing would be decorated to look like the lace of my wedding dress. The two side cakes would be smaller, each the same outer ombre design, but different on the inside.

On the wedding day we planned a “First Look” before the ceremony. We had decided to do this to erase any jitters that we might have had otherwise. It was a good decision.

The weather had been somewhat threatening all afternoon, but as if by magic the skies cleared for the outdoor ceremony and the beautiful day that I had been envisioning materialized! Our ceremony officiant was a life long family friend who made our service so personal and meaningful. We only had one moment of panic when a breeze blew my veil sideways. I reached back to hold it down and pulled it out of my hair! My sister who was my maid of honor very calmly took the veil from me and kept it the entire service even exiting with it very discreetly! We laughed afterwards that this was the “passing of the veil” ceremony. My sister was married 3 months later and the veil was worn once again by her…..it was well pinned for the second wearing!

It is hard to imagine a lovelier venue for our reception. The ballroom at The River Course was beyond my imagination. The tables, the mantle, the candles and the cake were all so beautiful. The best part, however was having our friends and family there to share it all with us. After a delicious dinner Will and I danced to “You Send Me”. The dance floor was never empty after that. The Maxx kept everyone moving and shaking the light-up tambourines that were passed out during the night.

It seemed to last only a short while and it was time for us to make our exit. I changed into a short white lacy dress and under a shower of rose petals Will and I hopped on a tandem bicycle and rode off into the night!

Beachside South Carolina Engagement Session

This gorgeous couple’s engagement session brought them back to the Bride-to-be’s college town, for an adorable photo shoot that has us oohing and awwing with every click. From perfectly capturing the stunning ring, to the darling story of how they met (his Mom set them up!), Shannon Michele Photography made sure this shoot is one to remember! Click here for so much more.


From Shannon Michele Photography… I met up with Molly and William a few months ago for their engagement session. Molly and William flew in from Baltimore, Maryland, where they both live and where their wedding will be held, to take some photos in Molly’s college town, Charleston. Molly attended the College of Charleston so we started off in downtown Charleston. We then headed out to Kiawah Island, where Molly and William were engaged a few months prior. Although it was a cloudy day, these two were up for anything, so it was a fun session. Molly and William met in Baltimore, pretty much set up by his Mom. They went on one date, went their separate ways, and then did not see each other again for almost 2 years. But it was meant to be the second time around.

Rustic Elegant Fall Wedding at Boone Hall Plantation

I just may have a little obsession with Boone Hall Plantation. ‘The Notebook’ got it all started, Blake and Ryan’s “I do’s” reinforced the love, and every wedding since has continued to make my heart flutter faster. And this one here is no exception, with the Plantation’s natural beauty shining through, accented by this beautiful coupleClay Austin’s pics have me planning that Charleston trip pronto.

From Clay Austin Photography… This little love fest took place at the postcard-esque backdrop that is Boone Hall Plantation outside of Charleston, SC. Every time I step foot on that long driveway lined with oak trees that leads up to the plantation house, I am still in awe! Such a perfect setting for a low country celebration! Every little detail right down to the place cards on vintage stationery, were absolutely breathtaking.

Boho Beach Wedding on Hilton Head Island

All I had to do was read that this beautiful Bride is an Anthropologie display artist to know I was in for a treat. And what a treat it is! Having DIY’d every decor item themselves, this couple’s talents shined bright, from their driftwood arbor to the Bride’s fantastic floral crown, photographed for us to enjoy by Riverland Studios. Get swept away with all this boho beauty right here.

From Riverland StudiosNoelle and Patrick finally tied the knot! The couple had been dating for ten years prior to their wedding day. The two grew up vacationing with their families on Hilton Head Island. “We have always joked about getting married there, so when it finally came time to take the next step, it made sense to begin there,” Noelle told us. “Our ideal wedding is a celebration of our union in front of our closest friends and family members. We want everyone to relax and be comfortable and just have fun together! We feel so blessed that for a long weekend we will be able to have all the people we love more than anything together at once.”

Noelle, a display artist at Anthropologie, worked with Patrick to design the entire wedding day from scratch! We love all of their DIY details: a beautiful driftwood arbor, handcrafted tablescapes, and a flower crown made from scratch! Noelle chose linen, baby’s breath, sea glass, and driftwood to compliment Hilton Head’s rustic and natural landscape. Soft pastel colors and natural textures wash over guests like a vintage dream.

An eager group of family and friends watched as Noelle and Patrick exchanged vows at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort. After a beautiful beachside ceremony, the celebration continued at the reception with dinner, dancing, and homemade (of course!) cookies and cake for dessert.
