Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Christine + Drew

This “Lilly” inspired wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation could not have been any more perfect for  this beautiful July day! The decor was bold and bright; the hot pink and  bright greens really made the venue pop! The bride made her own custom ikat pink and green table runners that helped pull together the look with the bold and beautifully done flowers by WildFlowers.

The couple tied in fun, creative details through out their celebration. In lieu of the traditional guest book, the bride came up with something totally unique! The book was a big puzzle of Charleston with different pieces cut out. The guests were told to pick a piece, sign the back, and replace it back into the puzzle.  The bride also had a special swing made for the wedding engraved with her and Drew's initials. It was a creative touch to add to the big Oak Trees at Lowndes Grove.

The bride looked gorgeous in her v-neck silk gown covered in beading, and the guys looked adorable in their pink and white striped bow ties! The excitement was building all day for the groom as he waited for the first look of his bride. The ceremony was made extra special when a bouquet was placed on an empty chair in the front row, in memory of Drew's Mom. This is such a great way to keep loved ones close!

Guests enjoyed cocktail hour with the amazing strings of Seth G. His upbeat vibe got everyone in the mood to party! Christine and her dad shagged to “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison for their Father/Daughter dance. The bride and groom ended their reception with their first dance to “This Will Be” by Natalie Cole. The party never stopped with this group as they departed by trolley to enjoy the wonderful adventures of Downtown Charleston.
