Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Amanda + Rod

The chance of rain wasn't stopping Amanda + Rod from having a beautiful day! As the bride and groom got ready for their special day in Isle of Palms, Pure Luxe Bride was hard at work at Lowndes Grove Plantation on the peninsula with a gorgeous draping installation for their tent!

The bride and groom chose to exchange their vows at St. John's Lutheran Church, off the beaten path nearby the downtown market. As guests arrived to the church, the bridal party was hidden before beginning what was a beautiful ceremony. Both mothers processed to "Clair de Lune", followed by the bridal party to "Canon in D". The officiant, groom and best man entered first, followed by the Jr. Bridesmaids, the bridesmaids escorted by the groomsmen, and of course, the two adorable ring bearer's. Amanda and her father were greeted by "The Prince of Denmark's March", as they themselves marched down the aisle.

Cocktail hour began at 6pm, where guests were invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the plantation home. Amanda + Rod's sweet puppy arrived, groomed and fluffy, to snap a few photos with the couple on their special day. "Dr. + Mrs. Romero" were announced into their reception and enjoyed their first dance to Edwin McCain's, "I'll Be". Amanda then shared a dance with her father and  Rod with his mother.

After the station-style dinner, Amanda + Rod cut their beautifully designed cake, adorned with flowers and detailed piping to match the lace on Amanda's dress. They had so much fun with the bouquet and garter tosses and danced the rest of the night away with their guests! Amanda + Rod chose "God Gave Me You" by Blake Shelton to be played as the last song of the night, before their sparkler departure!
