Magnolia Plantation Elopement: Juliette + Travis

The rain didn't stop this Mr. and Mrs. from having a beautiful and intimate mangnolia plantation elopement ceremony beneath the oak trees! This international couple came all the way from Australia to say their I Do's in Charleston! The couple spent the morning at Zero George getting ready, and then arrived at the plantationrelaxed and excited to get married! The backdrop for the ceremony was a gorgeous floral arbor, complete with white poppies, blush garden roses, and whimsical flairs of greenery. Juliette's bouquet was a perfect compliment to the arbor, with a mix of blush peonies, sweet peas, and trailing silk ribbon. Instead of fighting the rain, Juliette completely accepted the unpredictable Charleston weather, adding adorable rain boots and clear bubble umbrellas. Juliette and Travis had an intimate and personal ceremony with their closest friends having the chance to include classic traditions, and even make some of their own! Instead of having a traditional sand ceremony, the couple chose to use a Polish vodka and an Irish lacquer, reflecting both their heritages, and symbolizing the creation of their new family.  The finishing touch to the day was a vintage couch from 428 Main which created the perfect backdrop for their photos. With champagne in tow, the newlyweds rode in style in their black Mercedes to their dinner reception at McCrady's Restaurant. This adorable elopement ceremony was such a success, and we're so happy for our newest Pure Luxe Couple! When you embrace the rain, you can get amazing photos like these from Aaron + Jillian photography

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Katrina + Eoin

Despite the 1000 year flood that occurred the weekend of Katrina and Eoin's Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding, this couple was determined to say "I Do!" Guests and family flew in from all over the globe, including family members from Ireland! The rain took a break for the sweet couple and allowed them to capture their first look photos under the oak tree on the lawn. After a romantic ceremony, guests were invited under the tent to enjoy their cocktails and hor d'oeuvres. The tent was filled with blush pin-tuck and satin linens intermixed among the tables.The sweetheart table stole the show with a blush sequined linen, and floral decorated chair backs. The gorgeous tabletop florals varied in height and sizes and included blush and pink roses, plum hydrangeas, sweet peas, and astilbe with accents of ivory and gold. Origami paper cranes in white, pink, and gold were set on the tables as place cards. Guests signed a jumbo bottle of champagne to give Katrina + Eoin their best wishes. After dinner, dancing was kicked off with Irish sing-a-long's! The bride + groom had picked specific songs and printed lyrics to be passed out to all the guests. PLB could not stop smiling as everyone was on their feet singing along to "Whiskey in the Jar." The dancing continued with the perfect mix of oldies and new hits! Katrina could not wait to change into her fabulous after party dress and finish the night out with a bang! The bride + groom ended the night by recognizing their shared love for the South Carolina Gamecocks. Guests were given rally towels to wave in the air as the fight song, "Sandstorm", played. We were so excited that the weather held out for this wonderful couple!

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!

Legare Waring House Wedding: Rosie + Daniel

Rosie and Daniel chose the historic and beautiful Legare-Waring House for their rustic spring wedding! The couple wanted to accent their alma-mater in their decorations, with peach and lavender florals from Branch Design Studio throughout their entire ceremony and reception, Go Clemson!! With details like wooden wine barrels and vintage  lounge furniture, this upscale rustic wedding was one for the books! This Legare Waring House wedding was complete with cafe lighting over the entire reception space, and gorgeous crystal chandeliers amongst the oak trees, this reception was absolutely stunning as the sun began to set over the water.  Our bride and groom both spent the morning at the Legare -Waring House getting ready before their intimate first look amongst the oak trees. After their pre-wedding photo shoot with Courtney Dox, the bridal party made their way to the lawn of the house, and down the isle! After a beautiful evening ceremony, it was time to celebrate! Our newest Mr. and Mrs. shared their first dance to "Crazy Love", played live for them by The Root Doctors, and then joined their family and friends for a night filled with love and celebration. After an incredible meal from Cru Catering, and a delicious cake from DeClare, Rosie and Daniel spent their night dancing with friends and family and enjoying their stunning open air reception. We're so happy Rosie and Daniel chose to go through their planning process with us, and we loved watching them begin their new and exciting future together!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Jessica + Will

It was a beautiful sunny day for Jessica + Will's Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding. They had their ceremony between the Oak trees with a gorgeous backdrop of the Ashley River. Will walked down the aisle with their handsome dog, and Jessica walked down the aisle with both her Father and her Grandfather. Jessica had incorporated the cutest details that were special to her and Will. For table numbers, they used personal numbers that represented the couple such as; the day they met, how many miles apart their hometowns are, and their first apartment number. Their pillows for the lounge were of their home states of New York and Virginia with a heart where their hometowns were, a great keepsake to bring back home! They also had cute cookies made of their home states as favors for their guests! The groom planned a special surprise for their first dance.  He had arranged an acoustic guitar player to come in and play their first dance to the bride's favorite song "Hey Pretty Girl". How sweet! The couple and their guests danced the night away!

William Aiken House Wedding: Lisa + Scott

Lisa + Scott tied the knot in December at their William Aiken House wedding creating a classic, elegant feel with colors of navy and ivory. The couple wanted to make sure they commemorated  their families on this special day by setting up a table where guests had the chance to see old wedding photos of loved ones. Lisa's bouquet was full of Garden Roses, Ranunculus and small touches of Brunia Berries and Dusty Miller- it was the perfect winter bouquet by Wild Flowers.  The tablescape was full of glass lanterns, blooms, and candles for an intimate post-wedding dinner. Navy napkins were delicately placed at every chair with a personalized menu card, showing a loving message from the couple on the front and the dinner menu on the back.  As dinner concluded, guests headed downstairs for a delicious cake and dancing!  The lounge area was set up with gorgeous white studded couches, complete with "Mr. and Mrs." pillows. Lisa + Scott were sent on their way into downtown Charleston, and their family and friends departed with a sweet treat to save for later! Thanks to Aaron and Jillian for capturing all the pretty!

Janice + Mark's  William Aiken House wedding was a night to remember! Jennifer Bearden knocked this one out of the park, capturing every detail of the day beautifully! The bride + groom said "I Do" under a crystal chandelier with an ombre petals lining the aisle.  Of course its not a Pure Luxe wedding without a little glitz and glam and these dinner tables were done right! Gold trumpet vases filled with mounds of hydrangeas and peach roses by Loluma, candlelight,  and gold utensils to pull it all together! The reception tent was peach-perfect! With Quiana Parler and Friends playing the jams,  guests danced the night away! As the night came to an end, Janice + Mark were sent off by their guests with a sparkler exit. They rode off on an adorable bike taxi- the perfect ending to their ever-so-perfect day!

Island House Wedding: Jessica + Kris

Jessica + Kris's colorful and preppy wedding at The Island House was the perfect start to our busy May. The bright pinks and yellows with a dust of gold gave the wedding a fun southern feel, perfect for a waterside celebration! One of our favorite things to incorporate into design is pattern, and this bride did it right! Table runners, bar panels, and pole ties all bound together beautifully.

As the ceremony ended, guests were treated with colorful specialty cocktails provided by Squeeze with adorable names like "Martial Bliss" and "Cranberry Crush".  The brides favors were precious jams homemade by the mother of the bride. She used unique mad libs as her guest book that were placed throughout the reception for guests to fill out, so fun! With B.Gourmet in charge of the eats and Charleston Groove Factory playing the tunes, this reception was quite the party!

Jackie and Matt said ‘I Do’ at Grace Episcopal Church in front of family and friends. This sweet ceremony was followed by a celebration at Lowndes Grove, where guests enjoyed a delicious plated dinner and a night of dancing to great music.

This was the first time we were able to experience a "First Look" with the Bride and her Daddy. There wasn't a dry eye in sight! Brides that want to be traditional with seeing your groom when you walk down the aisle, consider a First Look with the other most important man in your life, your Daddy.

Lilac, coral, and ivory shades were found throughout Lowndes Grove. This color scheme, along with beautiful flower arrangements by Lotus Flowers, created an elegant atmosphere for guests to enjoy.

Jackie looked gorgeous in her wedding dress with a lace overlay, complete with a gorgeous champagne sash. After the ceremony and seated dinner, Jackie transformed her gown by taking off the lace overlay, revealing a fun white dress underneath. This look was perfect for her reception, which Jackie completed with a bling sash.

Patrick Properties treated guests with a seated plated dinner. Guests chose from entree’s of chicken, ravioli, or swordfish. This delicious meal left guests full and ready to celebrate Jackie + Matt on the dance floor. The band Permanent Vacation provided entertainment.
