Old Wide Awake Plantation

Remember that adorable engagement session we shared with you a few weeks back? Remember how we told you that you were going to LOVE the details of the wedding out at Old Wide Awake Plantation? Well here they are! We're so excited to share these images with you. Our job is fantastic because we get to see one of the happiest days of people's lives. This was no exception. If there is one thing we can say about Bonnie & Matthew, it is that they are so in love. They are one of those couples that makes our job so fulfilling because they were beaming on their wedding day. Needless to say, this was a really fun one to be a part of!

With all that being said, we couldn't have done it without awesome vendors. We were privileged to be able to work with extremely talented and extremely fun photographers on this event. Chris and Allie of The Reason did a phenomenal job of capturing this spring brunch style wedding. We also have to give a huge thank you to Beth of Wildflowers, Inc. She made the bride's cotton dreams really come true with gorgeous and whimsical bouquets and arrangements.


The ceremony took place at Old Wide Awake park at 11:30 a.m., just down the road from the Old Wide Awake Plantation house. Bonnie's request was simple as far as the decor. She wanted cotton to be incorporated and "there really couldn't be too much." So, cotton lined the aisles and the bridesmaids all carried cotton bouquets. Bonnie's bouquet was made of cotton with bright pops of yellow accents.The groomsmen wore boutonnieres also made of a single bud of cotton. We loved how it all turned out!






The reception was a casual lunch where guests munched on lowcountry favorites from Gourmet Bay Catering and sipped champagne while playing some of their favorite lawn games. Our favorite detail was the make your own grilled cheese station. Talk about a hit with the guests!




There were lots of little whimsical pieces that made this day special. For example, a puzzle guest book. Each guest signed a piece of the wooden Georgia puzzle and "left a piece of love" for the bride and groom.



Keeping with the cotton theme, instead of typical rose petals or sparklers, this exit was a burst of color. The guest threw craft cotton pom poms as the bride and groom ran by. The pom poms were stored in a white vintage suit case.









Lastly, here are a few of our favorite sweet moments from through out the day. Does this look familiar? A wedding twist on "A War's End Kiss"!











Congratulations Bonnie & Matthew! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
