Bride Allison shares her destination wedding at the dreamy Old Wide Awake Planation in South Carolina.

Please meet today’s darling bride, Allison! She and her beau Mike planned a beautiful Charleston celebration that was a destination wedding for both them and their families. And while planing a destination wedding (or a wedding outside of the town where you currently live!) can bring challenges. For Allison and Mike, it actually became one of their favorite things about the wedding planning process. Allison said, “We loved how many mini vacations Mike and I were able to take during the planning process. We visited Charleston 6 times in 19 months, and we had the best time each time we went.” She also recalls a trip where a canceled flight turned into road trip-adventure through a snow storm to make a few very important vendor appointments and some even more important memories. Keep scrolling to learn more about Allison and Mike, and of course, get all the heart eyes for their beautiful day!

Big hugs to Landon Jacob for sharing their South Carolina day with us!

What was your favorite detail from your wedding? In the months leading up to the wedding, I collected most of the vessels that the flowers and trinkets (koozies, programs, cards, etc.) went into from flea markets. It was a great way to add a very personal touch to the event and see my vision come to life. My florist, Fern, took my vision and ran farther than I ever thought possible with it. I was SO happy with the way the design of everything came out. Additionally, I incorporated my late grandmother’s veil as my “something old.” She was incredibly special to me, so it felt great having her with me on the day!

I started the dress search about 15 months prior to the wedding date (we had a 19 month engagement). I thought I found the dress of my dreams at my first appointment, Sarah Seven, and after learning that a trunk show where I could receive a sizable discount was occurring one month later, I knew I had to confirm my selection quickly. With that said, I went on a one-month mission to try on any dress that I was possibly interested in so that I could go back to Sarah Seven confident in my selection. Through my search, I realized that the dress I had originally loved was WAY different than anything I was drawn to at my other appointments. Heading back to the Sarah Seven trunk show, I was disappointed that I probably wouldn’t be taking advantage of the trunk show discounts. When I tried on the first dress I fell in love with, I realized it was completely wrong; luckily, thanks to the amazing Sarah Seven staff, they listened to the dresses I was loving at different designers & pulled out the most amazing dress I’d seen yet for me to try on. I knew it was my dress before even putting it on…but I did end up putting it on to confirm!

We chose to have our wedding in Charleston, SC. Mike’s family is in New York and Florida, and he went to University of Georgia, so most of his friends/family were all on the east coast. Alison’s family & friends are all in Illinois, which means that she’d been to almost every venue she would have chosen for someone else’s wedding, which didn’t feel special. Charleston was a pretty random spot as we only had 2 sets of family/friends there, but it was one of our absolute favorite cities and a place that we thought our Midwest friends and family would love to visit. Once we chose Charleston, we thought we wanted to a plantation feel, but booked appointments of a variety of venue types in the city. Old Wide Awake Plantation, which we ended up choosing, was one of the first we saw, and it became the one that we compared every other to. When we first turned onto the driveway & the house came into view, it took our breath away and we could clearly picture our perfect wedding there.

Did you decide to do a first look? Yes, we did a first look. We put so much thought and planning into the wedding of our dreams that we didn’t want to miss a single minute of it. Also, since we had a destination wedding, all of our guests were in from out of town, so we felt strongly about mingling as much as possible with everyone during our cocktail hour.

Although it was quite short (our Midwestern guests aren’t used to being out in the SC heat!), the ceremony was incredibly special to us because of who we chose to preside over it. Mike played baseball at University of Georgia and during his time there, he became quite close to the Chaplain of the team, Mr. Ray Lawrence. The day after Mike asked me what I thought about having Mr. Ray marry us, Mike woke up to an out-of-the-blue text from Mr. Ray, and we knew asking him was right.

What was your most memorable moment from your wedding day? There were SO many, but one of the most memorable was Mike and me sitting down next to each other being served our dinner when the rest of our table was released to go to the buffet. It was such a small amount of time where it was just the two of us, but it allowed us to soak all of our planning efforts and amazing friends and families who had traveled for our special day.

What was your favorite thing about wedding planning? I loved how creative I was able to be. I came up with a very clear vision of what I wanted, and I went to work finding the best vendors that could help me execute it. More importantly, I loved how many mini vacations Mike and I were able to take during the planning process. We visited Charleston 6 times in 19 months, and we had the best time each time we went. One of our favorite memories was when our flight was canceled due to a late February snowstorm, and we had such critical vendor appointments to make that we decided to rent an SUV and drive through the snow to make it. In hind-sight, not the best choice from a safety and sanity perspective, but it was such an adventure and great memory.

What was Southern about your wedding? Because most of our guests were from the Midwest, we wanted to make sure we provided a great Southern meal. For appetizers, we had sweet potato & ham biscuits, bacon-wrapped scallops, tomato pies, and mini chicken & waffles. Then for dinner we had a buffet (not at all typical in the Midwest – we normally do seated and served dinners) of shrimp and grits, peach glazed pork tenderloin, smoked chicken, fresh green beans, mashed potatoes (both sweet and normal) and biscuits with herb butter and strawberry basil jam. I still get compliments on our food with many claiming it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. We also incorporated Southern culture with the venue itself. It had such a great history, and I made sure to include it in the program so everyone in attendance could learn what a special place it was.

I’m convinced we had the best baker in the game! We used Izzabee’s Confectioneries in Columbia, SC. I dream of the sweets table that she made for us to this day! We went with a small (basically just a personal one for Mike and me) lemon cake with strawberry cream and lemon curd icing as well as fresh whipped cream. It was a naked cake, and she combined all of that deliciousness in. For the rest of the sweets table we had homemade s’mores (the marshmallows & graham crackers were all from scratch), chocolate chip cookies with sea salt, homemade Oreos, brown butter Rice Krispie treats, mini apple, blueberry, and pecan pies, mini carrot cake and chocolate cupcakes, lemon curd & blueberry tarts, and homemade Twix tarts. INCREDIBLE! Because I knew the sweets would be such a hit, I made sure to include “Treat Bags” at the table so that guests could take some home.

Our music selections throughout the ceremony and reception were especially important to us – we started compiling a list of must-plays right after being engaged! I walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of “Then” by Brad Paisley played by a guitar player and violinist. This song was perfect for us lyrics-wise, it was a great change from the normal “Here comes the bride” and the tempo fit wonderfully. Walking back up the aisle we chose American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life” (again played on guitar & violin). This is one of our absolute favorite songs – it’s super fun, the lyrics fit perfectly, and it got the tone of the night started! To walk into our reception, we chose “This is What You Came For” by Rihanna and Calvin Harris. Being that it was a destination wedding, we thought it fit because let’s be honest, everyone comes for the party! Lastly, our first dance song was “You and Me” by Dave Matthews Band. As long as I’ve known Mike, he’s talked about having this as his first dance song, and after whittling our list down song after song (we compiled and listened to all suggestions on Friday nights while drinking wine) this one persisted. It was the PERFECT first dance song.

Tell us your love story. Mike and I met at work. Mike worked at the company’s Atlanta office and I worked out of Chicago, but our roles had us working very closely. Then once Mike was transferred up to Chicago, the connection was obvious & the rest is history!
Tell us all about the proposal! Having recently brought home our beloved English Lab, Clarke, Mike asked me to take a random Friday off work to take the pup out to one of my favorite Illinois nature parks, Starved Rock. After about an hour into the hike, at the most scenic look out point, I turned around to see Mike down on one knee with Clarke sitting at his side. It was such a surprise and just perfect. After getting back to the car and calling friends and family to exclaim the great news, Mike let me know that we were headed to a fun restaurant back in Chicago to celebrate, just the two of us. Upon arriving at the restaurant, however, Mike pulled out his second surprise of the night – he had reserved a large private room at the restaurant and ensured all friends and family were in attendance to celebrate the engagement.
When did y’all get married? October 1, 2016.
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 120.
What was the hardest part about planning your wedding? The hardest part of planning the wedding was keeping my budget in check and trying to make sure all contributing family members were appeased!
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000.
What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? My venue didn’t require me to use any predetermined list of vendors, so I was able to go out and find vendors that fit into my budget. I also did a lot of things on my own that many people may have paid for (created guest thank you gifts, addressed invites, paid for design of my programs, maps, etc. but printed them myself).
What advice would you give to someone currently planning a wedding? If at all possible, do what will make you and your husband happy and don’t worry about anyone else. It’s your day, and you both deserve for it to be exactly what you want it to be.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about your wedding? It was the best day of my life. :)

    So pretty! Love the dreamy grays and that dessert table…and even though I just see a peek, I pretty much want to buy her mama’s dress and save it for 20-some years, ha!

Bride Amanda shares her beach-side wedding on Jekyll Island at Villa Ospo (and sage advice) with us!

Please say ‘hello’ to today’s bride Amanda! She’s a perfectionist by personality and an event host by trade, so I knew her Villa Ospo wedding to Jorge would be completely dreamy. And it absolutely was! But my favorite takeaway from Amanda and Jorge’s feature today isn’t how perfectly all the details looked surrounded by oak trees and dripping Spanish moss! It’s Amanda’s ability to take the sound advice that she was given to heart and soak in each and every moment of their wedding day. She said, “It’s pretty much impossible to narrow it down to just one favorite moment, and I’m proud to say I remember it all.” Curious how she managed to remember so many special moments on what can become a somewhat blur of a day? Her advice for future brides is “to make sure you step back and take in every moment.” Thanks, Amanda!

And thank you kindly to Shauna Veasey for sharing Amanda and Jorge’s Golden Isles wedding with us!

Tell us the highlights of finding your wedding dress. I am such a perfectionist and was honestly pretty nervous about the whole “finding the dress” process. Luckily, I had the best, most supportive crew by my side! My mom and grandmother came up to Atlanta to make a weekend of it with my mother-in-law and a couple of my bridesmaids. We went a few appointments and tried on several dresses at each. We almost missed our first appointment on the second day due to lovely Atlanta traffic, but the sweet sales associate still accommodated us upon our delayed arrival at The White Magnolia. As stereotypical as it sounds, we all knew it was the one as soon as I put it on. My favorite part of the whole process was seeing everyone’s faces filled with joy and happy tears and celebrating with champs!

Did you decide to do a first look? Yes! It was very important for us to have that first moment together, just us two, to embrace all of the love and emotions of the day to come.

What was Southern about your wedding? To us, the venue really was the essence of the South. Beach-side, surrounded by oak trees and dripping Spanish moss, it was the perfect setting for our day. We had a groom’s cake which was a highlight. We also had trolley transportation which is a staple in the Golden Isles. I also did a first look with my dad which was a super special moment. I’ve never seen him so nervous or at a loss for words. Those are some of the most special photographs I have from that day. I also surprised him with an engraved gold fishing lure that he was so proud of he kept in his tux pocket all night.

What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? I am from the Golden Isles, and with its unique beauty it was a no-brainer that we would have our celebration down there. We looked at several venues on both St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island, but when we discovered Villa Ospo, it was a done deal. It’s a gorgeous venue with so much history. We chose to have our ceremony out on the front lawn in front of the Centennial of the Oaks and our reception inside and behind the villa. Our last name, “Robles” means “oaks,” so it was a very special touch to our wedding that we really loved.

What was your favorite thing about wedding planning? I host events for part of my profession, so I enjoy having a vision of the event and then executing the tiny details to make it a reality.

We are seriously still in awe over our amazing cakes! I have never been to a wedding where the cake is such a hot topic. We didn’t even get to announce that we were going to cut the cake because the entire reception had already moved inside the villa in anticipation that it was about to happen. They were so unique and exquisite! We are lucky to be friends with one of the best people we know, Joshua John Russell, who is an amazing cake artist. We wanted something outside of the box, and wow did he deliver! We stuck with a coastal theme which he took to the next level. Joshua had molds made from real oyster shells and edible driftwood accents that were all edible. The groom’s cake was the real showstopper. It was a white octopus that stood on it’s own tentacles! The detail was out of this world and still has everyone talking. Joshua has an amazing vision and we are so lucky his amazing work was part of our special day.

Tell us your love story in one sentence. “It’s kinda like a bundle full of everything that’s wonderful – your love for me.” Frank Sinatra
Tell us all about the proposal! We were visiting my family in South Georgia for Christmas, and Jorge wanted to have breakfast on the beach on one of our last days in town. I had an awful allergy attack the night before, and the forecast was severely foggy and humid with a high of 86 at 8am. So the perfect “breakfast on the beach” weather, haha. Jorge asked what I was planning to wear (which should have been a sign) and when I replied, “Probably an over sized t-shirt,” he responded with, “Maybe not a t-shirt.” He supported his case by saying we would probably go shopping or maybe grab lunch while we were on the island so he knew I wouldn’t want to be stuck in a t-shirt all day, which is accurate. When we got to our favorite beach access, Jorge started acting strange. He couldn’t stop staring at his phone and kept making elevator talk about the beach houses near us. We walked down the beach until he abruptly announced this was the spot and I kept looking at the houses. When I scanned the sand dunes, I saw a familiar straw hat and camera pop up. Before I could gasp and look back at Jorge, he was already down on one knee saying the sweetest things and asking me to be his forever. We shared the following moments having the happiest impromptu shoot with my best friend and amazing wedding photog, Anna K Photography, and drinking champagne on the hazy beach.
When did y’all get married? March 18, 2017.
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 130.
What were some of the most meaningful or special parts of your ceremony? Rev. Tom did an amazing job tailoring our ceremony to us. He did some missionary work in Spain so was able to surprise Jorge’s family by reciting the Lord’s prayer in Spanish. It was difficult keeping such a big secret, but the surprise on their faces was priceless. We also had readings from two very special ladies in our lives: our sister-in-law, Sarah, and my brother’s long time girlfriend, Shelby. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:12-14.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. We had a violinist for ceremony music and a band for the reception. We both love live music so having musicians throughout was important to us. We wanted to keep the ceremony music traditional and have fun with the other songs. I walked down the aisle to the Bridal March, and our first dance was to “You are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne.
What was the hardest part about planning your wedding? Planning our wedding was so much fun, but so stressful! It was hard to coordinate with our vendors because I live five hours away in Atlanta. The hardest part was being such a perfectionist and knowing I wouldn’t be the one on site working the event, as I always am with my job, and things would be out of my hands. Luckily, I had amazing vendors and coordinators that made things run so seamlessly and smoothly. Even if I did drive them crazy stressing about the little details sometimes :)
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000.
What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? I designed the invitation myself with the help of my maid of honor, Anna Shackleford of Anna K Photography. I knew I wanted something unique and special to us and our venue. A friend from home just started a little painting business, so I had her do a painting of Villa Ospo. It turned out so perfectly that we used Photoshop to import the image and design the rest. It was fun to do together and so nice to have Anna’s expertise! We also had her original painting framed and used that as our guestbook which is hanging in our new home (..that we closed on the week of our wedding)!
What was your most memorable moment from your wedding day? It’s pretty much impossible to narrow it down to just one moment, and I’m proud to say I remember it all. I really took the advice I was given to heart, that your wedding day is so crazy and goes by so quickly, that you have to actually take time to make memories or it will all be a blur. Jorge and I both made sure we absorbed every moment throughout the weekend and these are memories we will treasure forever!
What advice would you give to someone currently planning a wedding? I would pass along the advice I received, to make sure you step back and take in every moment.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about your wedding? It was the most perfect weekend, from the weather to the little details, we’re just still on cloud nine and so happy! That means a lot coming from me who is such a perfectionist :)

Bride Wenjie shares her Atlanta wedding at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History with us!

Please meet Wenjie, our lovely bride for today! And y’all, I can totally relate to the hardest part of wedding planning for her. She said, “The big choices (venue, caterer, dress, etc.) were easy, but the hundreds of small details were the hardest part about planning.” I can definitely see why their venue was easy! She and her sweet groom Futhum instantly fell in love with the natural lighting, high ceilings, and dinosaurs (!) on their initial tour of Fernbank Museum of Natural History. It provided the unique and one-of-a-kind experience they were hoping to show guests. Another unique experience I’m sure their guests loved? Wenjie and Futhum incorporated their respective Chinese and Eritrean cultures into their wedding day. This even included teaching guests traditional Eritrean wedding dances, something I’m sure won’t be easily forgotten!

Thanks to Elle Golden for sharing Wenjie and Futhum’s sweet Georgia day with us!

Tell us the highlights of finding your wedding dress. I was #asentimentalbride! I loved the process of finding my dress at The Sentimentalist in Atlanta. It is the cutest bridal shop in little white house instead of in a mall or giant shopping center. The staff was super sweet and helpful and they had an amazing selection of designer and vintage dresses. They had a wide array of dresses including a stunning, fully beaded gown. It wasn’t the right dress for our wedding, but it was fun to try on! With the help of the staff and my bridesmaids, I found the perfect Nicole Miller gown on my first visit.

What was the hardest part about planning your wedding? The big choices (venue, caterer, dress, etc.) were easy, but the hundreds of small details were the hardest part about planning. It was difficult to foresee how it would all come together or how one small choice could affect the overall design (an ivory tablecloth vs. a slightly different shade of white). Luckily our wedding planner helped us navigate these options and even made some of the decisions for us.

Did you decide to do a first look? Yes! We wanted to have a private moment to share before all the guests arrived. It also took away some of our nerves and added to our excitement for the ceremony.

Tell us all about the proposal! We have known each other since high school. When the Georgia Aquarium first opened, Futhum bought me and my best friend tickets for Christmas. I thought it was a really thoughtful present, and he thought it was our first date. Luckily we still stayed close friends (and eventually dated). Ten years later, he surprised me with tickets to the aquarium again. This time, he took me on a special tour where we were able to swim with the whale sharks and sting rays. Afterwards, he took me to my favorite restaurant (Makan, where we later had our rehearsal dinner) and proposed!

At the last minute, Futhum asked a groomsmen to bring our dog, Roger, to the venue. He took the best pictures and stole the show!

What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? We were originally thinking about having a larger wedding, closer to 300 guests. As we began planning, we agreed that we wanted to invite close family and friends so that when we both look into the crowd during the ceremony we would only see familiar faces. We also invited the Obamas who were not able to attend so we really saved on security costs! They did send a nice card that is now framed in our house.

We did not write our own vows, but our officiant interviewed us and incorporated our responses into the ceremony. I talked to him about how much I appreciate Futhum’s openness to trying new and exotic Chinese foods. We’re pretty sure we had the only wedding ceremony to ever mention chicken feet and stinky tofu. Additionally, my dad wrote us a poem and read it at the ceremony in both Mandarin and English. There definitely was not a dry eye in the house, including Futhum’s, which was the first time I’ve seen him cry in 15 years.

We made sure to include our favorite artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Outkast into our day. After the ceremony, we walked back up the aisle to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered!”

We had a brief private moment after the ceremony while our guests were enjoying cocktail hour. Our caterer brought us champagne and hors d’oeuvres. It was amazing to be able to celebrate our marriage just the two of us and take a deep breath before jumping into the reception.

We knew we wanted to get married in the city of Atlanta and Fernbank Museum of Natural History was one of the first venues that came up in our search. We instantly fell in love with the amazing natural lighting, high ceilings, and dinosaurs on our initial tour. We also knew this would be a unique and one-of-a-kind location and experience.

What advice would you give to someone currently planning a wedding? Hire a planner! It really took the stress out of wedding planning. Even though it is an extra cost, it is well worth it and your planner will help save costs elsewhere. Create the type of wedding that you would want to go to! Remember that it is a day for BOTH of you and include the groom in the planning.

What was your favorite detail from your wedding? While we planned our wedding in a more American tradition, we included small touches from our own cultures (Chinese and Eritrean). Our favors were in Chinese silk pouches and included samples of Chinese green tea and Eritrean coffee which are both very important in our culture. We also played a few Eritrean wedding songs and had a blast teaching all of our guests the traditional dances.

What was Southern about your wedding? It was hot! We did not incorporate many traditional Southern aspects into our wedding, but our wedding definitely demonstrated Southern hospitality. We had guests from literally all over the world from different backgrounds and cultures. We were so happy seeing all of our guests welcoming each other and becoming friends as the night went on.

When did y’all get married? August 6, 2016.
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 150.
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $50,000-$75,000.
What did you serve for your wedding cake or dessert? We served a red velvet wedding cake from Sweet Hut Bakery. Sweet Hut is one of our favorite restaurants, and we love their Asian-style cakes, because the frosting is very light and subtly sweet. I guess our guests enjoyed it too, because it was devoured in a few minutes and we heard people were fighting over seconds.
What was your favorite thing about wedding planning? Our wedding planner! Whitney from Whitewood Events made wedding planning a breeze. We nicknamed her our magical wedding fairy because she made sure everything was perfect and even anticipated our needs. The cake and catering tastings were a favorite too!
