ZACH + MARY’S LOWNDES GROVE WEDDING

LOWNDES GROVE WEDDING

We’re SO excited to be featuring Mary & Zach’s Lowndes Grove wedding on the blog today!!  Not only was Mary absolutely stunning in her Watters lace wedding gown and Zach in his black tuxedo, they were the most graceful, calm, thoughtful and heartfelt bride and groom!!  They didn’t let the details of the wedding stress them out or take their focus off of what really mattered (partially thanks to Justin Lankford of Charming Events, who ran the day flawlessly for them!).  They both opted not to do a first look, so their first encounter was as she walked down the aisle!  Their eyes were locked on each other the whole way down, as if they couldn’t get to each other fast enough!  It was really adorable actually!  Their whole wedding day was filled with sincere moments, lots of laughter, a few happy tears, some killer dancing and some of the most encouraging, complimentary and dotting guest!  It was such a sweet testament to their friendships with each person who was there and a glimpse into how wonderful they will be to each other as they start their new life as husband and wife!!   Enjoy some of our favorite shots from their gorgeous wedding day!

IAN + STEPHANIE’S HISTORIC RICE MILL WEDDING

IAN AND STEPHANIEWe’re so excited to introduce y’all to Ian & Stephanie, College of Charleston “sweethearts” who stole our hearts the moment we met them!!   So while we’re on the topic of meeting, let’s talk about how these two met!   It was Stephanie’s Freshman year and Ian’s Sophomore year and it was at a Halloween party when Ian brought Steph a beer and… or, wait… was it when they were at a fundraising party?  Well, the verdict’s still out and while they can’t quite remember or agree on where they met for the first time, we can tell you that they are REALLY HAPPY they met (wherever it was), because if two people are meant for each other, it’s these two!  Stephanie is a little firecracker; bubbly and ambitious, magnetic and passionate and Ian is dependable, easy going and generously thoughtful!  They balance each other in this beautiful yin and yang way and inspire everyone around them to love life and each other!  It’s really a special, special bond that they share together and getting to spend the day with them and their sweet families and friends made our cheeks sore from smiling so much!!

DAVID + AUSTIN’S DANIEL ISLAND CLUB WEDDING

DAVID AND AUSTINS CHARLESTON WEDDINGI love how they say their story starts off like a joke. Girl walks into a bar…, because sometimes the greatest love stories can start off like a joke and end as an absolute fairytales!!  That’s Austin & David’s story!  This sweet as can be Georgia peach met this charming Virginia boy in the small historic college town of Charlottesville, VA as she was finishing up an internship. David was in town for a wedding, but lived in Arlington, VA after graduating from Virginia Tech. Their first date was to a Nats baseball game, and as Austin likes to say, “I knew I hit a home run!” … we totally agree, girl!  After dating long distance for over a year, David moved to Charlottesville to be close to Austin and the fun continued!  Then on a cold night in February, with half a foot of snow on the ground, David dropped to his knee and proposed in front of the Rotunda on UVA’s campus and the rest is history!!

We love that Austin & David chose to get married at the Daniel Island Club, just minutes from Austin’s dad’s home on the island and we were in love with their wedding design of soft pastels, TONS of incredible florals flown in from Florida and put together by a team full of incredible florists flown in from Detroit, each arranged in a beautiful vase (from her “Charleston Mom’s” company, Syndicate Sales), absolutely delicious food, and a band that kept nearly 90% of the guests on the dance floor all night!!  It was such a fun day; rain, no-seemums and all, because Austin & David were the most gracious hosts and their family & friends were over the moon for their marriage!  We couldn’t have asked for anything more!!  Enjoy some of our favorite shots from their day!
