Kristi and Chad were married on a beautiful summer day at Lowndes Grove. The waterfront estate in downtown Charleston boasts 14 acres of natural beauty, all surrounded by river views and live oak groves. The lush green grounds, bright white buildings and romantic shadows under the oaks created the perfect setting for this couple’s glamorous golden wedding reception.
The couple’s classic style was a perfect fit for the historic venue. They created a timeless look throughout the space with elegant décor and subtle details. When the guests arrived on a Charleston trolley bus, they found their way to their seats with the help of this beautiful display, featuring our Wrought Iron Easel.
The glamorous look was carried over to the bar area, where they used our Chameleon Gold Bars and Maison Bookshelves for this stunning set-up. Tip: Stack three bars together to create a statement piece for cocktail hour. This stylish solution will also give the bartenders extra room to mix up signature cocktails, so your guests spend less time standing in line and more time on the dance floor!
Kristi and Chad wanted their guests to have comfortable places to dine, drink and visit during the reception, so they decided to create multiple lounge areas throughout the venue. Each set-up was a little different, which added variety and dimension to the large space. The light wood and linen fabric on our Antoinette Settees and Dior Chairs kept everything feeling open and airy. To add a little extra ambiance to the room, we placed conference tables between the small lounge couches and added a few candles.
They kept most of the decor simple and clean, drawing attention to the gold and green focal points in the room. The Napoleon Chairs and trees brought a regal look to the reception space. The couple mixed up the seating at each table and one of our favorite set-ups was the use of conference tables on leg extenders. This doubled as reception seating and a spot for guests to relax after getting down on the dance floor!
When guests arrived to their seats for dinner, their spots were set with our Gold Mosaico Glass Charger and Gold Flatware. Chargers are a great decorative tool – they add a subtle layer of color and texture to your tablescape, without taking away from the other details. We love how these chargers resemble the pattern of a sea-shell and bring an elegant touch to the table.
This wedding at Lowndes Grove was golden, glamorous and timeless! We had such a pleasure working with Kristi and Chad to make their dream wedding day a reality. Congrats to the happy couple!
