Charleston Wedding at Lowndes Grove
One of the most beautiful events we've photographed was a lovely Charleston Wedding at Lowndes Grove on New Year's Eve. Ralph, Chloe's father, gave a great speech about her at the rehearsal dinner. Apparently when Paul asked for Chloe's hand (he flew all the way to New York City from Houston to ask permission), Ralph said to Paul, "you know she's going to try to organize you." That made me laugh. Chloe is a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to ask politely for it. She is kind, generous, charming and yes, very organized. During the wedding day, I noticed many times Chloe and her father having fun together. She thanked him numerous times during the evening and it struck me as a sincere bond that is hard to come by between father and daughter. It is always an honor to witness the various types of joy and love at our events. Paul is a risk-taker and so easy to get along with. The wedding combined elements of the Bride's vintage style, and the Groom's sense of adventure with their love for Charleston, where they first met. He created a short film about his love for Chloe, which played at the rehearsal dinner. I think if you watch it, you'll get an idea of Paul's personality and how genuine his love is for Chloe. Back to the actual wedding-- what can I say, Lowdnes Grove Plantation is just glorious, as is Charleston, and the entire reception I felt like I was placed inside the Great Gatsby. The bride has a true love of vintage style, inherited from her mother. They both share an appreciation for antique aesthetics and art deco design, and the wedding embraced an elegant, festive, art deco look. Carrie Glasscock from A Charleston Bride orchestrated this theme flawlessly for Chloe's event day coordination. Jamelle and I truly enjoyed working with her team.
