A Laidback, Beach Wedding from Heirloom Creative

There are some weddings that come through my inbox where I think, ‘Oh man, I wish I’d be invited to that party’, which was most definitely the case with Brandy and Doug’s wedding, photographed by Heirloom Creative.

There are some weddings that come through my inbox where I think, ‘Oh man, I wish I’d be invited to that party’, which was most definitely the case with Brandy and Doug’s wedding, photographed by Heirloom Creative. Held on a small beach in South Carolina, the couple threw the ultimate backyard wedding (if your backyard happens to include an incredible views of the ocean).

And, to me, it looks like Brandy and Doug (and all of their guests) had seriously good time; judging by the couple’s smiles and the amount of love Heirloom Creative captured, I’d say their wedding details – barefoot on the beach, a serious dance party, the ‘Fortune Telling for Brides’ book and tree carving – fit them to a tee. Talk about a happy, relaxed day…

Brandy was kind enough to send over some of her thoughts on their wedding – be sure to check them out after the photos!

Brandy’s Thoughts on Their Wedding
Did you create any DIY projects?
ok, special DIY projects were basically left up to my mother (Helene) who has a ‘craft/painting’ business in Pennsylvania. She did every bit of decorating for us, down to the mason jar/Folly Beach Sand chandeliers that hung throughout the reception area (absolutely amazing!!!) She’s the one you should be interviewing!

What was the most meaningful part of your day?
The most meaningful part of our day came unexpectedly…. While taking ‘bridal party’ pictures at the driftwood forest at the Washout (the very tip of Folly Beach), our photographer produced a pocket knife for us to carve our names into the wood and seal the deal, so to speak, hahaha.  I’ll never forget the look in Doug’s eyes when he had FINALLY carved ‘D + B Forever’ in a crooked heart.

Did anything funny or out of the ordinary happen?
Nothing went wrong… pretty out of the ordinary, if you know us.
