It’s pretty much a given that we are going to fall in love with anything that Lisa Thomas of Ooh! Events in Charleston sends us. Her weddings are always so completely romantic, so completely Charleston. And this one…oh my. It’s total gorgeousness. It has this really old world, Grace Kelly vibe about it, where tradition meets total style. And although I could easily talk all day about this one, I’ll just let the beautiful pictures by Tracey Turpen speak for themselves.
From Lisa Thomas at Ooh! Events…
Lisa and Jake, Ohio natives, had weathered 5 years of long distance relationship when Jake finally popped the question during a vacation at the Turks and Caicos. Charleston, SC seemed like a perfect place for their families from all over the country to gather to celebrate. They wanted some place close to the city so their guests could truly have a experience Charleston. They quickly decided on Lowndes Grove. Lisa envisioned a classic, intimate event with lots of neutrals to compliment the Plantation in it’s natural form.
In a picture perfect ceremony they said, “I Do” under a live oak tree that was adorned with crystal chandeliers while Ann Caldwell sang classic jazz throughout the ceremony. Lisa and her bridesmaids looked stunning as Lisa choose a vintage glam style. The floral only added to this unique, vintage, elegance with garden roses, snowberries, hydrangeas, and casablanca lilies in vintage milk glass collection from Out Of Hand. Under an array of tents they continued their celebration with an original mix of cuisines as gold drum shades cast a romantic glow into the night and threw a pattern of stars on the ceiling. The legendary Charleston baker, Jim Smeal, created a cake that was a masterpiece that accompanied Out Of Hand’s vintage elegance.
The newlyweds and their guests were kept dancing all evening with the Two 3 Ways band and a DJ later in the night. A group of 50 guests accompanied Lisa and Jake as they kept on dancing the night away at the rooftop of the Market Pavilion Hotel. The next day as they jet set away on their honeymoon, Lisa and Jake knew they’d never forget their wedding experience as anything other than amazing!
