Cagney Elrod &  Zack Stein
October 6, 2012
Lowndes Grove Plantation

On a hot air balloon ride in Asheville, North Carolina, Zack Stein proposed to his girlfriend of three years, Cagney Elrod. Back on firm ground, the two chose Charleston for their Big Day since both had visited as children, and she is a self-professed “beach girl” who wanted an outdoor wedding, sans sand. When Cagney laid her eyes on Lowndes Grove Plantation’s stately Southern façade, everything came together. “I imagined stark white linens and décor with bright pops of color for drama,” says Cagney, who enlisted Lizz Akerman of Southern Protocol and Anne Dabney of stems to bring her dream to life with punchy pinks, melon orange, and oodles of flowers. “Everything about the wedding had an upbeat, charming, happy, Southern feel,” says Lizz. “It was, as every bridesmaid said, ‘So Cagney.’"
