Fireflies, peaches, and a quaint park wedding in South Carolina

By on Aug 31st

Charlotte and Jeremiah somehow managed to pull off the following amazingness on a low budget. Brae Howard Photography captured the summery DIY moments in a lovely park in North Augusta, South Carolina.


Charlotte's lace shrug is the perfect accompaniment to her off-white, sheer, layer-y dress. And those shoe's were from Old Navy! Adorable and affordable.


Their hand-drawn, hand-scribed invitation has a gorgeous vintage feel. And everyone loves swans. It's a fact.


Look at these two. Jeremiah is owning that ultra light blue suit and dickie bow. Anyone in a bow tie gets major bonus points.


The men took their cue from the bride's shoes with their blue saddle action. And suspenders! And those chic little Rosemary boutonnières are fantastic. Definitely a good example of less is more.


Red and blue loveliness and more awesome beards!


A lot of their friends contributed to the day. Charlotte's brother and friend sang at the wedding and played banjo and accordion.


Could this be any simpler? There is no need to go nuts with flowers when you're surrounded by forest. I love the simple wildflowers behind them.


These Mason jar lids sported the same illustration as the hand-drawn invitations. And these were used for catching fireflies! Which, seriously, is the most fun thing I can remember from childhood.


Check out how many of the couple's close friends made their desserts and even the wedding cake. Plus they offered Southern peaches as favors. Yum!
