Father of the Beach Bride

One detail to love: Meera gave her sweet father a gift just before they walked out to the beach. It was a handkerchief with a message sewn into it: "Dad, Although I am all grown up dressed in lace and pearls, remember on my wedding day, I'm still your little girl."

Love at First Sight

  As we head into the magical Fall wedding season, we are looking back at some of the highlights of our 2014 wedding season. All of us at A Charleston Beach Wedding have to agree that this has been the summer of the sweet bride. We really have loved being a part of each and every wedding this summer. Kicking off our Summer 2014 Wedding Highlights: The Blanketships.  This couple chose to have  a romantic beach ceremony, just the two of them. And what made it even more special is that her wedding day was the very first time this bride...

A Valentine’s Day Beach Wedding

  Congratulations to this year’s Valentine’s Couple: Danielle and John! It’s always an honor to work with members of the military and this time we were twice blessed because they’re both in the military (they met at work). Danielle’s dream since she was a little girl was to someday be married in an “orange dress”, which she pulled off beautifully in a salmon-colored, full-length, chiffon gown. Even Mother Nature cooperated for their very romantic elopement to Folly Beach, SC: the polar vortex...

Why We Eloped

Why We Eloped

“We hadn’t thought of eloping until our guest list kept growing and growing…and we knew we’d be in deep financial trouble if we didn’t do something. So, we decided to slip away and get married on our own terms. We had to do it quickly before the wedding planning got too far along. We found A Charleston Beach Wedding and they were wonderful. We asked them if we could get married a week away and they told us, a two day lead time was fine. They sent us the marriage license information and the name of a florist who...

Beach Bridesmaids: What to Wear

Beach Bridesmaids: What to Wear

Everyone has their own horror story about bridesmaid dresses. The good news is that there’s something about a beach wedding that seems to inspire brides to choose only the best, most wearable, most subtly beautiful bridesmaid dresses around. Or maybe it’s just our brides. But we’ve learned a lot from watching them and we’d like to pass that information on to you.   One of the reasons that beach bridesmaid dresses seem to be so pretty is that brides often choose the colors of the sea, such as a dusty blue, a soft turquoise, or a shell...

Sunset & Moonrise Wedding

There are some intangibles with having a wedding so close to nature. In Scott and Lizzie’s case, it was the gift of a full moon rising behind them and the sun setting in front of them, casting a warm, golden glow on their ceremony. We loved being part of a wedding with such a truly starry-eyed...

‘R’ is for Rainbows

‘R’ is for Rainbows

Rain and rainbows go hand in hand and we have the beautiful weddings to prove it! If you’ll look closely at one of the photos, you can see not one, but two gorgeous rainbows that lit up the sky behind this lucky (and very much in love) couple. Most brides and grooms fear the r-word but, after having performed hundreds of ceremonies during the last twelve years, (99.5% of them rain-free) we can say that weather predictions for this part of the world are unreliable. We have micro-climates here. It can rain one island over, but not one...

Turns out, men love beach weddings

Turns out, men love beach weddings

One of the happiest people at any beach wedding is, without question, the groom. In many cases, it’s even the groom who does all of the planning with our company.  This was, at first, surprising until it slowly it dawned on us: it’s because men love beach weddings. They love beach weddings because it combines their favorite things: being outside in a relaxed setting and being with the person they love, not necessarily in that order. We also try to make your wedding planning experience as straight forward and easy as possible, which  many...
