Big Fake Wedding Charleston’s Take On Swiss Alps Inspiration *

Big Fake Wedding Charleston’s Take On Swiss Alps Inspiration *

The Big Fake Wedding Charleston caught us by surprise when they hosted another Swiss Alps wedding inspiration event. Then we saw the images—expertly captured by Wyeth Augustine Photography and Justin and Lauren Photography—and fell in love all over again. This time, our hearts fell for the carefully placed pastel accents, deep green hues, and pandemic-friendly charcuterie cones. 

This event, hosted in Charleston, took the same mood board used in the Big Fake Wedding Denver’s event and managed to create a completely unique wedding. The use of natural textures and tones carried over to create a warm and cozy atmosphere while other fun details were added. The vintage car and cigar bar are just some of the new additions to this romantic micro wedding party.

This Fall Kiawah River Wedding was Planned in Four Weeks *

This Fall Kiawah River Wedding was Planned in Four Weeks *

One look at Emilia and Noah’s Kiawah River wedding, and you’d have no idea that they planned it in just four weeks. With the help of planner Hill and Co. Creative, the couple planned a day full of warm fall colors, Charleston countryside views, stunning florals from Roadside Blooms, and a whole lot of love.

We love Emilia’s bold laced LoveShackFancy dress that she ordered online. It just goes to show that wedding dress shopping doesn’t have to be complicated! Oh, and did we mention that the couple threw on cowboy hats and jean jackets for a sunset portrait session? Junebug member Billie Jo and Jeremy Photography captured it perfectly, and we can’t get enough.

Although we could go on about the simple rustic vibes of the day, we love what their planners over at Hill and Co. Creative had to say:

Hill and Co. Creative On The Day

Emilia and Noah met through their church in early 2019. Although neither one of them was looking for a relationship at the time, they both realized they could not deny their connection and started dating in April. Emilia and Noah both felt a call to be missionaries, and an opportunity arose in early 2020. However, it would require them to be husband and wife to be a part of the program. Noah knew Emilia was ‘the one’ so he proposed to her in August. The young couple came to Hill & Co. Creative in the early fall for their wedding planning needs. In less than two weeks, we made it possible for Noah and Emilia to get married under the oaks at Kiawah River on October 12th, 2019. The couple incorporated a ceremonial foot washing and enjoyed worship opportunities with their guests. The day was exactly what Emilia and Noah had dreamed of and we could not have done it without all of the vendors who came together so quickly.

Autumn Country Vibes For Their Kiawah River Wedding

In just four weeks, Noah and I–with lots of help from Hill & Co. Creative–styled a wedding that touched on warm autumn colors and understated low-country beauty. We wanted the simplicities of the marshland, muted terracotta, gold and blush hues, heaps of natural wood, and whimsical flowers to be juxtaposed with the extravagance of the union God was forming between us that day. Most of the design inspiration was lead by the Holy Spirit and Pinterest.

Wedding Advice From The Bride

Don’t overthink it! No one remembers the chairs, table settings, or your color scheme at the end of the day—they will remember the feeling. Craft your day around the love you share, and it will be absolutely breathtaking.
