Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Stephanie + Chad

Stephanie + Chad's classic  Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding couldn't have been more perfect! These out-of-owners traveled from North Carolina to have their dream wedding in Charleston at the picturesque Lowndes Grove Plantation. Stephanie looked breathtaking in her Modern Trousseau gown as she walked down the aisle of St.Lukes chapel with her father to "Rondeau" by Mouret. Her lush bouquet was full of white peonies and white ranunculus with accents of dusty miller, lavender sweet peas, white fringe tulips, white patience garden roses, and more!  As guests began to arrive at Lowndes Grove for the reception, Stephanie + Chad warmly welcomed them into the house for cocktail hour while guests enjoyed delicious sips and bites. The clear tent was gracefully draped in ivory with chandeliers glistening from the top.  At each place setting, guests found their names written in gold calligraphy on Magnolia leaves with sprigs of rosemary, olive, and lavender accenting each napkin. Long table garlands full of magnolia leaves, olive branch, and seeded eucalyptus filled the tables, with colorful pops of white fringe tulips, white ranunculus, and lavender sweet peas. Gold silverware, gold rimmed glasses, and custom menus by Silver Starfish completed this elegant table setting.  Guests enjoyed a delicious 3 course plated dinner while the sounds of big band music by Joe Clarke Big Band flooded the tent.  This fantastic night had to come to an end, but not before guests enjoyed a variety of mini desserts and one more song by the band before departing in the vintage Rolls Royce!  Thanks so much to Aaron and Jillian for capturing all this pretty and best wishes to the sweetest couple, Stephanie + Chad!

Southern Sparkle Styled Shoot with Lowcountry Wedding

We have been patiently waiting to be able to share this fabulous styled shoot with you! This past summer we teamed up with some of our favorite vendors and Lowcountry Wedding Blog to bring you a true Pure Luxe Bride original. When we were approached to be a part of the shoot we were given a bracelet that was pink and navy tied in a sailor knot with an anchor clasp to incorporate into the inspiration. We turned this piece of jewelry into our inspiration for the theme: Nautical Meets Kate Spade (with lots of sparkle!).

Charleston Fashion Week- Bridal Couture Recap

And other Charleston Fashion Week comes to a close but the electricity is still in the air!  It was an absolute pleasure to represent Pure Luxe Bride at this year's event as we rubbed elbows with some of the finest designers on Saturday afternoon while enjoying the Bridal Couture runway-show in historic Marion Square. This year's selection of dresses could not have been more fabulous. The show presented the perfect mix of new, fun inspirations and ideas with timeless classical looks.  Impressive detail-work could be found throughout the collections and a couple of absolutely stunning and breathtaking gowns took the show to the next level.  Even though the sun did not find its way Downtown this weekend, there was nothing but radiance at Marion Square.  We are already looking forward to next year! Below are some of our favorite highlights of the show! Enjoy!
