A Lowcountry-Inspired Wedding at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Jenna Breland (29 and a gymnastics instructor) and Joshua Geiger (30 and a mechanical engineer) were inspired by the lowcountry culture of South Carol

Jenna Breland (29 and a gymnastics instructor) and Joshua Geiger (30 and a mechanical engineer) were inspired by the lowcountry culture of South Carolina. "Charleston has a beautiful and rich history and landscapes that are easy to fall in love with," Jenna says. "We wanted to replicate its beauty for our wedding." Their venue, Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, was the perfect choice to match their theme. Its southern-style architecture features a large wraparound porch accented by pillars, exposed wood beams and cathedral ceilings, and the hall features water views of Cooper River. To highlight the coastal culture that inspired them, Jenna and Joshua chose a color palette of light blue, white and tan. The waterfront porch, with seating for cocktail hour, featured all-white decor and flower arrangements of white hydrangeas and magnolia leaves. Inside, tables were covered in sea blue linens and the candelabra chandeliers above were decorated with hanging greenery and blue flowers. Jenna herself carried a bouquet of ivory garden roses, peonies, blue hydrangeas and ivy with her lace wedding dress, and Joshua wore a sweetgrass rose boutonniere with his navy suit and light blue bow tie. Even the wedding cake kept with the theme: it was decorated with blue hydrangeas and sweetgrass basket weaving, a craft that's native to the lowcountry region. Richard Bell Photography captured all the gorgeous details!

Alhambra Hall was the perfect location for Jenna and Joshua's lowcountry wedding because of its beautiful waterfront views. During cocktail hour, guests could enjoy these views on the patio, which was equipped with white cocktail tables and chiavari chairs. Flower arrangements of white hydrangeas and leafy greens decorated the outdoor area.
By the bar at the reception, a white bookcase featured photos of Jenna and Joshua and greenery on its shelves.
As favors, Jenna and Joshua gave their guests blue drink koozies that was personalized with their monogram and wedding date as well as the location of their wedding and South Carolina's emblem.
The white wedding cake for dessert was decorated with blue hydrangeas and accents of sweetgrass basket weaving, a craft native to the lowcountry regions. The cake was displayed on an antique white cake stand on a blue and white cake table.
