Rustic Outdoor Barn Wedding Alongside a Lake

Today, we are soaking in the beauty of this serene wedding venue. If you enjoy fresh air, sunshine, and a wedding in the country, this chic barn wedding will make your heart melt. Kelli and Brent had no worried faces as the skies turned a little grey, nor when it started to rain during Brent and Kelli’s first look. These two knew how to throw a luxurious party for all of their sweet guests!

From the pewter bridesmaid dresses, metallic golden wedding cake, navy blue suits, and chic lace wedding dress, we love the delicate details of this special day. The outdoor tent made the reception space looks warm and cozy, despite a bit of gloomy weather. The white and peach colored flowers paired with small pieces of drift wood made this space as rustic as it was romantic!

A Romantic Southern Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are swooning over this seriously stunning styled shoot! There are so many things we love about this piece- its romantic charm, the golden summer hues, and the vintage Rolls Royce automobile. If you are thinking about hosting a summer outdoor wedding, take notes on this epic traditional wedding inspiration.

There is something so nostalgic about Charleston; we are forever smitten with the Spanish moss that dangles along the old trees, and the ageless brick homes that live within its city limits. It’s a quaint little city that almost seems to take you back in time. Though any wedding theme looks stunning in South Carolina, we can’t help but fall head over heels for a soft color palette here, where the scenery does most of the talking. This formal wedding used our premium foil pressed wedding invitations to tie in their chic theme.

Make sure to also check out the fun creative video down at the bottom! #swoon

Blue and White Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are beaming with delight over this charming, rustic wedding! From the iconic Spanish Moss that grows on these timeless trees, the old wooden venue, and stunning twinkly lights strung up during the evening, we are smitten with the details Michelle and Peter picked for their big day.

These two first met, and fell in love, in dreamy Charleston. However, their sweet engagement didn’t take place in the states. During Easter Sunday while they were in England visiting Peter’s family, he took Michelle to a fun zoo in London. After nervously making laps around the park, Michelle finally asked him what he was doing? In order not to ruin his big surprise, he quickly dropped to one knee, and asked if she’d be his wife!

Peter and Michelle’s wedding day happened at Magnolia Plantation!The beautiful array of white flower bouquets, rustic blue and white reception decorations, and fun fire pit for roasting their sweet treats, all helped make this day a memorable event.

Timeless Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this ultra chic outdoor wedding with you all. Ali and Ryan were together for 9 years before Ryan proposed! These lovebirds were married in a traditional Catholic church, and then headed over to a rustic Plantation for their reception party.

From their Celtic Folk-Rock songs, little black dog, and rustic white naked cake, we are enamored with all of their fun wedding picks. The neutral colors make this wedding theme work for any season! Hundreds of white and peach-colored roses were used throughout their big day in South Carolina, which helped create a warm, intimate atmosphere for all of their guests. We love their fun twists on a traditional wedding theme.
