Every time I set sights on Lowndes Grove Plantation, I get a cozy, warm feeling inside like I’m at home. Call it the Southern hospitality or just how darn gorgeous this venue is, but it’s captivating for sure. And when you throw a team of talented vendors in the mix to craft a downright beautiful wedding day? It’s all over. Aaron & Jill Osteen gracefully captured this elegant soiree and you can feast on every bit here.

From Aaron & Jill Osteen…Have you ever wondered what it would be like to attend a beautiful quintessential Southern wedding?! Well, pull up your chairs, because you’re about to get a sneak peak into one of our favorites to date! Stephanie and Chad envisioned their wedding day with hospitality in mind, so they enlisted the help of the incredibly talented ladies at Pure Luxe Bride, to bring their vision to life! They wanted their guests to feel as if they were coming to a wedding at their family’s historic Charleston home, welcome to move about as they pleased! I’m 100% sure they pulled off their vision! I’ve never heard so many wedding guests rave about the decor, the house, the views… it seemed as if every corner I turned, someone was saying they wished they could come back and relive this night every year! What a wonderful compliment, huh?!
The entire house at Lowndes Grove was open to their guests to roam around during cocktail hour! Most could be found sipping drinks on the porch while the incredibly talented 3 piece jazz band serenaded them on the 2nd floor foyer! The weather was warm, the sunset was to die for, the guests enjoyed sets of rocking chairs in the cigar lounge by the water, their reception tent was draped in white linen and chandeliers, the tables were set with gold silverware and gold rimmed glassware, the beautiful menus were graced with hand sketched pictures of the venue, and magnolia and olive branch table runners ran the entire length of the longest tables I’ve seen to date! The 3 course seated dinner was incredible, the beautiful white bar and tufted gray couches allowed guests a chance to get out of their seats and mingle with other guests! The band played Big Band music all night long and had the dance floor hopping!! A vintage rolls royce swept Stephanie & Chad off to their after party downtown… and what more can I say! It was just PERFECT, and we’re so happy for Steph & Chad because we know it was perfect for them too!
Stephanie and Chad’s wedding was stunning! It was magical! It was oozing with Southern charm… and in our eyes, it was perfect… and there’s nothing more we could want for such a sweet, generous, thankful, and gracious couple like them! I’m not sure we stopped smiling all night that night and we’re still dreaming of their wedding day and the chance we had to be with them on the day they committed to forever together! Congratulations!!
