Rustic Pink Outdoor Farm Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are elated to be sharing this classic southern-style wedding! Brooke and Steven were married on a stunning 50-acre family farm out in South Carolina. Their sweet ceremony took place alongside a serene lake, and was then accompanied by some hilarious wedding photos of the bride and groom. This rustic farm wedding is too much fun! Did we mention they even have a horse and buggy?

Steven and Brooke wanted a fun and casual atmosphere for their big day. They made sure to have some delicious home-cooked BBQ at their reception, as well as some rustic decor pieces. Brooke was most inspired by blush and gold colors, which are perfect for the summertime. Vibrant pink peonies were seen in every bouquet, and paired with whimsical bridesmaid dresses. The dance floor was a big hit that night and everyone danced to an array of great tunes, from Forever Young to Uptown Funk! These two lovebirds will be headed to Central America for their amazing honeymoon.

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.

Southern Yellow Wedding with a Rustic Theme

Today, we’re loving this vibrant yellow wedding theme! Blake and Mac held their fun, rustic wedding at the River Road and Jasmine House, near Lake Murray in South Carolina.There isn’t anything more adorable than a rustic southern wedding. The sweet details and playful charm made this summer wedding extra special.

The ceremony area has an elegant iron gazebo at the front, and a permanent doorway at the end of the aisle, making it a unique entrance for the bride and groom. This garden wedding is so serene and quaint. Blake and Mac even chose to write their favorite bible verse above the door so it would be included in their wedding memories. Rustic wedding invitations help tie-in this cohesive theme, and can be customized to fit your special day!

What are we really loving? Let’s talk about that cake! Rightfully named for its unfrosted sides, this “Naked Cake” is especially popular for rustic weddings. So much texture, so many beautiful layers of cake and frosting—Add flowers to any type of cake and you’ll have a dessert display “dressed to the nines”.

Pink Rustic Fairytale Wedding on a Lake

Today, we are swooning over this rustic fairytale wedding out in North Carolina! Filled with an abundance of spring inspiration, this venue created a whimsical wedding theme for Angie and Sean.

We are really loving the pink and white peonies in Angie’s bouquet. They’re also scattered about the ceremony and reception areas as well, which make for some very angelic wedding decor. The rustic, brick ceremony backdrop is one-of-a-kind and ultra romantic- it’s the perfect place to exchange I DOs. The 3 bridesmaids were all Angie’s sisters, which made this occasion even more special for her. The blush sequined dresses from Lord & Taylor are simply gorgeous, and added so much character to the big day.

Filled with sunshine and a perfect breeze, these two lovebirds threw a fun party for all of their guests to enjoy. The mix of greenery and blooming spring florals along the reception tablescapes are so fitting for their fairytale theme. Their majestic wedding cake is the real icing on the cake though! It looks like it was dreamed up, right from a storybook.
