I am going to star highlighting some of my favorite Charleston wedding venues! And I may throw in a few destination wedding venues once in a while too just for fun. So I begin with Charleston Weddings at Lowndes Grove Plantation.
As a wedding photographer in Charleston, I get to experience all of the stunning venues here.
This venue is beautiful for many reasons, but I will tell you the main reasons I believe it is beautiful. For one, it overlooks the Ashley River. There’s even a dock that you use for a dramatic boat exit after your wedding! And when the sun is setting you can get some dreamy portraits of the two of you. They will be perfect to hang up on your wall of your new home together!
This enchanting Charleston wedding venue has multiple backdrops that can serve for your ceremony.
You can have the historic house, huge live oaks or the Ashley River behind you as you exchange vows and become husband and wife. The only problem with that is that you won’t know what to choose! They are just all so beautiful.
Another great thing about Lowndes Grove Plantation is the enclosed space for your reception. It is so customizable and you can really do anything you want with your wedding day! I’ve seen so many different setups that are all unique and beautiful. It can be anything you want it to be!
Not only do you have access to a great reception space, but you also have access to the whole estate. If it rains, have no fear! You can bring your guests inside for your cocktail hour! As well as getting ready, you have plenty of room! There are a total of 3 floors, and you have access to two of them. A lot of brides choose to get ready upstairs with their girls and let the grooms have one of the rooms downstairs. Plus the girls get their own balcony to pop champagne and celebrate!
And last, but certainly not least, on site parking. Yes, that might be lame to some people, but I swear this is a rarity in Charleston. Normally in Downtown Charleston your guests have to park in a garage, on the street or just Uber to your wedding. I think it is so nice to not have to worry about where all of your guests will park. So yes, that is one of my favorite parts of having a wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation!
And that is why I love Charleston Weddings at Lowndes Grove.
