Vintage Chic Charleston Wedding

I have such a love affair with Charleston. And Charleston weddings? Some of the very best. They just know how to combine tradition with sweet southern style in a way that always makes me swoon, and this beauty captured by Dana Cubbage Weddings with florals from Branch Design Studio is the perfect example of why. And you can see just what I’m talking about right here in the VAULT.

From Dana Cubbage WeddingsThe Legare Waring House at Charlestowne Landing is just one of those venues that is so quintessentially Charleston and so naturally beautiful. It’s no wonder that Lara + Ed fell in love with it’s beauty and used it as the inspiration for their wedding design! They wanted to utilize as many areas of the property as possible, so they planned their ceremony beneath the majestic Wedding Tree, cocktail hour on the patio in front of the main house, and an open air reception in the Avenue of Oaks! It was stunning!In an effort to incorporate even more of the property into their photos, we did their First Look, portraits, and bridal party photos in the Wedding Garden… one of my favorite spots at Legare. The lighting was absolutely PERFECT, streaming through the trees + Spanish Moss. That’s the kind of stuff that gets me really excited as a photographer!After a beautiful ceremony under one of the most majestic oak trees I’ve ever seen, Lara + Ed enjoyed a seated dinner with their family + friends before hitting the dance floor. Lauren of ELM Events helped bring Lara’s wedding vision to life and their rustic-inspired design featured a mix of family-style long tables and smaller rounds, wooden chairs, lanterns, candles, and plenty of beautiful floral arrangements by Branch Design Studio. Chandeliers hung from the Avenue of Oaks, adding a touch of glam to this beautiful soiree. Beneath the glowing lights and stars, Lara + Ed dined al fresco and danced the night away with their closest family + friends while Charleston Groove Factory rocked the house. It was another beautiful fall evening in Charleston and such an amazing day all around.

From The Bride…Living and working in weddings in Chicago, we decided we wanted to get away from the midwest, and find a place where our family and friends would be excited to spend a long weekend. Evan had spent some time in South Carolina in college, so we started looking in Charleston. The beautiful mossy trees, charming city, and beach oasis completely drew us in. We spent many, many hours looking up venues, caterers and flower shops before we took our first trip down, and arrived with a short list of vendors to visit. We ended up only visiting Magnolia Plantation while we were there, and it was like paradise. We knew it would be a dream for Kyle to work there, and the intimacy of the conservatory was perfect for my vision of a lush, overgrown garden wedding.

With both of us being in creative fields, it was important for us to find vendors who had a strong vision, and we could let them run wild with our ideas. Kyle was the first vendor we found- we completely fell in love with his photographs, and laid back attitude. We knew he would be a perfect fit for our wedding. We really wanted tacos for our dinner, but we found a lot of caterers only offered low country food, or typical wedding options. We were so happy to find B. Gourmet- they took the menus from our favorite taco spots and created something that reflected our tastes and creativity. To this day, we still get compliments on the food!

Even though planning a destination wedding was sometimes difficult, we were so happy with how everything turned out. More than the wedding day itself, it was so fun to have our family and friends on vacation with us for the weekend, enjoy the city, and join us for the best dance party we could ask for!

From Brianna Wilbur PhotographyThis vision for this shoot was all things southern classic with a romantic, feminine twist. The tulle, blush gown paired with the slightly whimsical, lush bouquet was the perfect combination to keep the bride polished but unpretentious. The linen inspired sitting area, hints of gold accents, and blush textures were chosen as timeless, elegant additions. I think spanish moss is one of nature’s prettiest gifts so I knew I wanted to incorporate it as much as possible. Magnolia Plantation is the perfect place for a dreamy love affair to unfold. This is for all the classic, romantic, plantation-loving brides out there!
