Kim and Hunter were married at St. Luke’s Chapel with a reception following at  Historic Rice Mill in Charleston, S.C. on August 2. Kim looked flawless in a strapless A-line gown and her hair in a beautiful updo. She wore her late father’s wedding ring on her right hand and carried a bouquet of cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, cotton, and berries. Her ‘maids stunned in short satin black dresses and pearl necklaces. The groom and his men wore classic black tuxedos. The pair tied the knot in a traditional ceremony at St. Luke’s Chapel. After exchanging vows in front of 150 guests, a vintage-inspired reception followed. “First and foremost, we wanted to show everyone a good time,” Kim said. “It was important for us to have a venue that fit our style and have plenty of space for dancing.” Guests were greeted by an old wooden table where they could place notes in vintage desk drawers for the newlyweds. Other vintage accents included re-purposed coffee cans as vases, velvet upholstered chairs, and antique trunks. Rustic marquee signs were displayed that read “Mr & Mrs.” and “Cocktails.” Guests enjoyed dinner and danced the night away, did the Hora, and didn’t even notice gloomy the weather had gotten. ” It poured while we were on the dance floor, but I didn’t even notice until it was time to leave,” Kim said.  Family and friends enjoyed a five-tier wedding cake with gold accents. Kim’s advice? Enjoy yourself! “Everyone you love will be together for one night only just to celebrate with you. Appreciate that in and of itself,” she said. See the full board here.

Dresden and Peter were married on Steam Gun Beach followed by a reception at Port Royal Golf Club in Hilton Head, S.C. on May 10. The bride looked radiant in a strapless sweetheart drop waist gown. She pulled her hair in a partial updo and carried a bouquet of pink and purple hydrangeas tied with a tulle ribbon (which was put together by her parents). Her ‘maids donned navy blue one-shoulder dresses and carried preppy pink hydrangea bouquets. The groom and his men looked dapper in light pink pants, dark jackets, and blue bow ties. The wedding took place right on the beach in front of a bamboo chuppah as 100 guests watched in folding chairs. For Dresden, this location was an easy decision. “I grew up going to Hilton Head every summer since I was born and always had said I wanted a wedding on the beach there,” she explained. Young gentlemen in pink bow ties carried a banner down the aisle that read “Here comes the bride.” After officially tying the knot, the wedding party rode in style on a red trolley to the reception. The reception tablescapes featured various beach decor such as seashells and starfish. There were also votive candles inside white lanterns for a beachy effect. The three-tier blue cake was adorned with seashells and starfish as well. Guests filled favor bags with various candy from the display Dresden and Peter created, they also offered them glow sticks to use on the dance floor. Talk about creative! “Stick to what you have always imagined ,” Dresden encourages. “Everyone will be trying to talk you into what they have envisioned for the wedding, but you want it to be the perfect day.” See the full board here.

Kelly + Shaun: A Shabby Chic Pink Spring South Carolina Plantation Wedding By Aaron Nicholas Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Aaron Nicholas PhotographyEvent Planner: Margaret McKenzie;Venue: Old Wide Awake PlantationDress Designer: Watters from April RoseGroom’s Attire: Jos. A. BankShoes: Something Bleu from BHLDNFloral Designer: Charleston BloomsBridesmaid Dresses: Mori Lee from Bridals by JodiCeremony and Reception Musician: EPIC CharlestonOfficiant: Kendal BuckendahlCaterer: Cru CateringRentals: All OccasionsCake: Cakes by Kait

 Kelly and Shaun were married at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, S.C. on April 13. “With me being from Connecticut and Shaun being from Kentucky, we decided to get married in Charleston because that was where we met and lived throughout our entire relationship,” Kelly said. “It was also a good neutral location for both our families and many of our friends.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with statement earrings and bracelet, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath. “I knew that I wanted the quintessential Southern wedding,” she said. “I knew that I wanted blush, ivory, and gold. I knew I wanted sprawling lawns, wraparound porches, mason jars, a fire pit, and dancing under the stars. OWA was the perfect venue, and I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.” Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that said, “1st kiss and 1st dance,” and encouraged to sit wherever they liked. “It was a perfect, sunny spring day at about 78 degrees,” Kelly said. “We could not have asked for a better day.” Cocktail hour began with spiked sweet tea made with Firefly Vodka, of course! Reception tables were decorated with white linens, mini glass vase and vessel centerpieces, and mercury glass votive candles. “If I had to name a few words that I had in mind while planning our wedding, I would say that romantic and Southern topped the list,” she said. “I would say that shabby chic, flowy, breezy, vintage, and rustic also played a part.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing,” and ended the night with a sparkler send-off. Then, it was off to Hawaii! See the full board here.

Debra + Nick: A Romantic Red and Gray Winter South Carolina Plantation Wedding By Richard Bell Photography

Debra and Nick were married at Carriage House at Magnolia Plantations & Gardens in Charleston, S.C. on January 3. “We knew that we wanted a special destination and Chaleston, our first weekend getaway as a couple, fit the bill,” Debra said. “We originally wanted to get married on New Year’s Eve, but we settled on January 3, 2014 — taking a gamble on the fickleness of a Southern winter.” The bride wore a sweetheart wedding gown with a ruched bodice and ruffled skirt, accessorized with a birdcage veil and rosette peep-toe kitten heels, while the groom wore a black suit, silver vest, and white pocket square. “In terms of decor, we went with a rustic theme using gray, burlap, and ivory linens with pops of red,” she said. Bridesmaids wore long chiffon dresses and carried bright bouquets of roses, berries, dusty millers, and scabiosa pods. “A cold front rolled in the day before our wedding, dropping the temperatures from 60s to 30s,” Debra said. “Our bridal party was full of troopers because they all agreed to remain sleeveless and without coats.” The reception followed inside with candlelit centerpieces, praline favor bags, and several traditional Okinawan dances.
