Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Kiera + Brian

Kiera + Brian's Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding was an elegant day to remember! The day began with hair and makeup for Kiera and her bridesmaids in the Lowndes Grove Suite, while Brian and his groomsmen got ready at the French Quarter Inn. Both of these stunning locations made the perfect backdrop for getting ready photos. It's so special to capture the hours leading up to the ceremony! Kiera + Brian opted out of a first look and said "I do" at Saint Luke's Chapel. Kiera looked classic in a beautifully beaded Monique Lhuillier gown. As Kiera walked down the aisle to her handsome groom, she carried a spilling, textural bouquet of peach juliet garden roses, pink maria teresa garden roses, peach tree peonies, cafe au last dahlias, coral peach ranunculus, and more lush blooms. When Brian saw Kiera for the first time, he couldn't contain his excitement. The two said their vows with Brian's father as the officiant. As the newlyweds happily exited, guests made their way to Lowndes Grove Plantation for the reception! The tent was beautifully decorated with long ivory linened tables, mahogany chivari chairs, vintage China, majestic light blue napkins, and gorgeous pops of orange, coral pink, and pink ranunculus in thin clear glass bud vases. The cake was a beautiful shade of light blue with textured detail and vibrant pink maria teresa garden roses and majolica spray roses. The couple had specialty engraved cake forks that read "I do" and "Me too". Extra details we loved were the bride's custom Instagram signs with rose gold frames and place cards attached to vintage keys that doubled as bottle openers! Guests were treated to a plated dinner and a night of lively dancing to the sounds of Stephen Darby. Before the reception came to a close, Kiera + Brian departed under a sparkler archway into their vintage Rolls Royce getaway car. We adored this elegant, vintage design with shades of light blue and pops of vibrant blooms. Wishing this New York couple years of happiness to come!

Historic Rice Mill Wedding: Shayna + Joshua

Shayna + Joshua's Historic Rice Mill Wedding was certainly a night to remember! This sweet couple traveled from Washington, D.C. to downtown Charleston to say "I do" at the Historic Rice Mill in front of their close friends and family. The day began with hair and makeup by Beauty Asylum for Shayna and her bridesmaids, while Joshua and his buds suited up pre-nuptials. Everyone then met at the Historic Rice Mill, but Shayna was kept hidden from her soon-t0-be husband until the ceremony began. The ceremony took place outside with the Historic Rice Mill as the backdrop. Joshua's mouth dropped wide open when he saw his beautiful bride walk down the aisle. Joshua's father officiated the ceremony and it ended with a dip and a kiss by Joshua that was later painted by Wed on Canvas for the newlyweds to hang and cherish forever! Post ceremony, it was time for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres inside. The color scheme was ivory and navy with sparkly silver accents and special touches by the bride + groom that incorporated their love of wine, such as table markers and different bottles of wine for each table! The table scape was complete with silver chivari chairs and a traditional Southern grits favor for each guest to take home. Their lounge was set up outside on the dock with white leather couches, elegant crystal chandeliers, tall cocktail tables with sequined linens, and silver accent pillows to finish off the look. Guests loved the decor, and the cuisine as well! During the plated dinner, Shayna's father gave a heartfelt speech, thanking friends and family for traveling to Charleston, and sharing stories about the bride + groom's whirlwind romance! After dinner, it was time to cut the cake and dance. Stephen Darby kept the guests on their feet all night and played some crowd favorites, such as Beyonce's "Drunk in Love," while guests enjoyed light-up accessories to use on the dance floor! As this memorable night came to a close, Shayna + Joshua were sent on their way through a sparkler archway into a white Rolls Royce onto their after-party at Trio Downtown. Wishing these newlyweds love and happiness for many years to come!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Anita + Shawn

Anita and Shawn came all the way from New Jersey to have their destination wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This couple traveled the world together, got engaged in Africa, and decided to say their "I Do's" in Charleston, SC. Their ceremony was held in front of the oak tree overlooking the Ashley river. PEW's provided vintage church pews for their guests seating with picture frames lining the aisle of the bride + groom as babies growing into their adult life. The bridesmaids looked stylish in their floral printed dressed with astilbe bouquets, we love the print in their outfits! The Carriage House was draped in soft ivory accented with pearls for a feminine touch. Bright blooms filled the table tops in hues of blush, mint, peach, and turquoise. Wooden centerpieces were filled with ranunculus,  hydrangeas, peach lisianthus, coral ranunculus and mint succulents. Mosaic Catering provided delicious eats and fun specialty cocktails for cocktail hour and the reception! The Little White Box, a 1974 Vintage Volkswagen bus, is a traveling photobooth that arrived later in the night for guests to enjoy! See all of the amazing photos captured by Monika Gauthier Photography!
