If you’re seeking Southern elegance with sprawling views, look no further than Lowndes Grove m’dears. It seems every time I set my eyes on this venue, I walk away feeling charmed. And this fete from Aaron And Jillian Photography is no exception. Dressed in a slightly energetic navy and hot pink, and filled with personal touches (like this dog tag adorned bouquet!)—you can find even more right here!
From Aaron And Jillian Photography…What’s grander than having a destination wedding at a beautiful historic Charleston plantation home on the Ashley River that also happens to be one of the top wedding venues in America according to Brides Magazine?! Well, not much I think?! And to make it more awesome in this case, Dan & Anna’s first trip they ever took together was to our charming little town of Charleston and the first time Dan told her he loved her was right here!! It’s no wonder they chose it to start their first day of forever together!! I love when our couples chose Charleston not just for it’s charm and beauty, but because it’s special to them and their love story, and these two are no exception! One of my favorite things about their story is that Dan is actually stationed with the army in Italy right now and they’ve been writing, skyping and calling each other through their entire engagement! There’s something so intentional to me about long distance relationships! Plus, Dan didn’t fly into Charleston until a couple days before the wedding, so you can imagine the build up of excitement and giddyness to see each other! I feel like you can see it in their eyes in almost every photo! …He’s so proud to be her husband and she feels so safe and loved in his arms! It sounds cheesy, but it was SO apparent and so adorable! Since Anna was doing the planning on her own, she enlisted the help of the ever so talented Southern Protocol to bring her winter wonderland wedding to fruition and boy did they nail it with beautiful Christmas trees, twinkling lights, lanterns hung from live oak trees, beautiful winter florals, chinchilla throw blankets, elegant lounge furniture…and 3 CAKES!!!! Yes, 3 beautiful cakes! We loved it and had the best time following these two around all night and documenting their beautiful wedding! Enjoy some of our favorites from the day!
