 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 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.

Crystal and David were married at The Ivy Place in Lancaster, S.C. this past November. ”It was a beautiful fall day and close to 60 degrees,” Crystal said. “It did get cloudy the hour before the ceremony, but it was still very nice!” Guests were greeted with a wooden welcome sign and lots of pumpkins. The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with a beaded bodice, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a red tie and pocket square. Approximately 100 guests watched as the couple proclaim their vows and symbolize it by combining two different colors of sand in a mason jar. The reception boasted a Southern vibe with vintage accents. Tables were decorated with rose, hydrangea, dahlia, and scabiosa pod centerpieces surrounded with moss and homemade apple butter favors at each place setting. To fill their tummies with goodies, buttercream frosted cake was served as well as ice cream in mini martini glasses. See the full board here.

Aubrey + Dave: A Vintage Fall South Carolina Historic Home Wedding By Whitney Photo & Video
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Whitney Photo & Video

 Aubrey and Dave were married on a rainy fall day underneath a tented patio at The Clebourne House in Fort Mill, S.C. Aubrey knew she wanted a vintage vibe. Hence, why she wore a Pronovias lace wedding gown, soft red leather saddle shoes, and a birdcage veil. Bridesmaids wore an array of fall hues in mix ‘n’ matched dresses. The bride worked for the florist, who made her arrangements, and when she came back from her honeymoon, the florist sold her her business! “Now I own it and am able to do flowers for brides; it’s a dream come true,” Aubrey said. A guest, who could not attend the wedding was able to watch via Skype (how tech-savvy, right?). During the reception, guests were greeted with movie posters, a love story timeline, and a sweet candy bar, including peppermints, which doubled as favors. Instead of sparklers, the couple chose to have a glow stick send-off. See the full board here.
