Standing proudly along the oak-lined banks of the Ashley River, Lowndes Grove in Charleston, South Carolina is a picturesque waterfront venue. Surrounded by 14 acres of live oak groves and peaceful river views, it is a serene setting for a wedding. Both relaxed and refined, it oozes Southern charm.
The beautifully restored estate offers an unparalleled backdrop for your big day, featuring 1786-era architecture with period furnishings. Host a sophisticated ceremony on the grand lawn, with the Main House as a backdrop. Or overlooking the River beyond! If you’ve been dreaming of a dramatic entrance or exit, chartered boats are available to book.
For a memorable cocktail hour, serve up light bites and refreshments on the sunlit terraces, made of bluestone, brick and oyster tabby. Meanwhile, guests are also welcome to wander the nearby gardens. During rainy periods, tents look beautiful with their brilliant white canopies set against the lush foliage!
Finally, take advantage of the waterfront for breathtaking portraits. You and guests will enjoy an unrivaled view from the private dock extending 700 feet into the Ashley River. And should you like, Downtown is a short distance away, for urban portraits or an early-morning brunch.
