JEFF + JESSALYN’S MIDDLETON PLACE WEDDING

When we booked Jessalyn & Jeff’s wedding weekend with A Charleston Bride, we KNEW it was going to be incredible, but we had no idea how much fun we would have or how quickly we would fall in love with this sweet couple!!  Jessalyn & Jeff are SO genuine, so sweet, so welcoming, SO intelligent, so perfectly matched for each other and so good looking, which made our job of photographing them just that much more awesome!!  After spending the weekend with these two, we totally understood why their guests and families adored them the way they do!  They’re just so great!!  Their wedding day started at the gorgeous Restoration on King, where Jess and her girls and Jeff and his boys all got ready for the big day – in different rooms, of course!!  We then all headed to Middleton Place (one of our favorite venues in town) for Jessalyn & Jeff’s first look under a giant Live Oak Tree, dripping in Spanish Moss, right on the water!  It was magical and perfect and sorry, but if you want to see those photos, you’ll have to ask Jessalyn & Jeff!!  They wanted that moment to be as private as possible, so we’re keeping the photos private too!  The rest of their wedding day was absolutely perfect, thanks to the amazing planning and designing talents of Lindsay Shanks and her fabulous assistant, Abby, from A Charleston Bride, who designed a GORGEOUS garden inspired ceremony at the Butterfly Lakes, cocktail hour at The Octagonal Garden and tented wedding reception on the front lawn of the plantation home!  It was all of our favorite areas of Middleton all wrapped up into one beautiful wedding, which is why we’re SO EXCITED to share some of our favorite photos from their wedding day!

…Introducing the newlyweds, Jeff+ Jessalyn!        Congratulations you two and enjoy your upcoming honeymoon in gorgeous, Greece!!!

ABBY + WILL’S LOWNDES GROVE WEDDING

Abby and Will met in French class the spring semester of their junior year at Emory University in Atlanta, GA and by the second day of class, Will was already choosing the seat next to Abby.  It didn’t take long before he started to carry her books and walk her to her next class… if you ask him though, he’ll say he tried for months and months to ask her out, but sweet little Abby was completely oblivious!  Good thing she finally caught on and gave Will a chance to win over her heart because look at them now!! They’re living in Chapel Hill and have the most adorable Golden Retriever fur baby named Lilly, which you’ll see when you scroll through their gorgeous wedding photos!  Their wedding was one of our absolute favorites of all time at Lowndes Grove for so many reasons!  For one, Abby is an incredible oil and watercolor painter and she hand painted her entire invitation suite along with some other gorgeous wedding stationery for their big day!  (If you’re looking for someone to paint your wedding venue, your new house, or even your furbabies, EMAIL HER!  She’s incredible and has already painted out little “Home On Hickory” and gorgeous portraits of Cash and Boone for us! We’re obsessed and love that we’ll have a little piece of her talent in our own home!)  Back to the wedding though, our other favorite thing about their wedding day was the fact that they used the rooms in the historic house and the upstairs porch for their seated dinner!  The head table was out on the front porch and Abby + Will’s friends toasted them for hours, while the sun set and the stars came out!  It was pretty magical and it felt as if their wedding was held at one of Abby + Will’s rich Southern grandparent’s home on the water!!  Swoon!  We’re pretty sure with how gorgeous the gals of Mac & B Events decorated it, how delicious the food was, and how in love Abby + Will were, their guests will be talking about their wedding for years to come!!  So, without further adieu… we bring you Abby + Will’s gorgeous Lowndes Grove wedding in Charleston, SC!


See what I mean about how gorgeous this perfect wedding was?!!  Congratulations Abby + W!!  We hope marriage has been more than you ever dreamed it would be!
