New Additions :)

Here at Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation we continue to improve and always offer southern luxury! You and your guests will be amazed at the newest additions to the Plantation.

Last week we collaborated with an amazing group of local professionals to debut these new items.

HamptonCove-45We chose Amanda, of London Lane Studios, because from the moment we met her we loved her! She has the most gleaming and sweet personality ever. Then after seeing her photography style we knew she was the one for the reveal photo shoot. Amanda and her second shooter, Irene, are so talented in their photography skills and capturing the beautiful moment.

Modern Brides provided this stellar gown. I love the delicate lace pattern to the back. It was so hard to choose just one because of the great selection of gorgeous gowns at their store.

Simpson’s Florist created the bride’s bouquet complete with succulents, radiant flowers, and cabbage. They have amazingly unique designs tailored to every bride’s style and dream.

Under the Veil created the classic and flawless look for the model. Doesn’t Christine look perfect! The owners, Becca and Brittney, are such kind hearted and talented hair and make-up professionals.


Here it is Ladies and Gentlemen.. The surprise additions you have waited for!!!

Your guests can enjoy the timeless outdoor courtyard which is illuminated by the cascading Edison bulb string lights. They can entertain themselves with competition corn hole while watching the sunset and the mountain views. Complete with seating areas and aromatic flower beds that make for a great photo back drop.HamptonCove-111


Explore our enchanted forest, sit beneath a teepee. Allow your imagination to be inspired by the dream catchers blowing freely in the wind. This new and fun photo op location makes for a unique image to remember. Our wish is for all your dreams to come true together!

This photo shoot would not be what is was without the talented businesses behind the scenes. Plus a huge thank you to Christine and Dylan our models for looking so good!

Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation wants to continue to provide an extraordinary experience for our guests complete with the southern elegance and friendly hospitality.

Gold Leaf Profressional: Hire a Professional (Erin Lindsey Images)

   I have to share with you the first time we met ProfessionalErin Lindsey, so buckle up. This is a great story!

Early summer 2013, Carla and I have more physical work on our plates than we know what to do with. We just started a managing a 23 acre property, on top of it, the beginning of Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation. We would do as much manual labor as we could around our appointments. So, we schedule a time to meet with this sweet photographer. Carla is on the John Deer lawn mower and I am waiting inside watching for her pull up. Erin Lindsey of Erin Lindsey Images arrives. We start our tour and Carla doesn’t come up. She meets us on the walk to Shady Grove and says to me in anguish, “Heather, I need your help. I have got the lawn mower stuck in the creek.”   Here is where it gets good…

View More:, without hesitations volunteers to help too. Not knowing that she will be put to work, Erin is wearing a nice blouse, navy skirt and nude heels. She bravely walks into the grass and pushes the mower out with Carla and I. This single story is the beautiful personality of Erin Lindsey. She will do anything to help you!

She started her photography company, Erin Lindsey Images, in 2009 and now has more than 150 weddings under her belt. The way she loves her clients is what continues rave reviews about Erin! She is invested in more than just taking photos of a couple on their wedding day. She gets to know them and helps them through the process. View More:
