LGBTQ Wedding in Charleston at Lowndes Grove

Some of my favorite things from Ashley & Heather’s Wedding at Lowndes Grove

🌙 They got ready for the day together but into their dresses separately so they could do a First Look!
🌙 The First Look!! I had them walk out at the same time and they had the cutest reactions to each other!
🌙 All the gifts – Heather’s bridesmaids gave her a necklace but Ashley schemed with Heather’s daughter Ansley to get their thumbprints on a necklace for Heather! And Ashley got her a stunning ring
🌙 How close their families are. Ashley’s mom & stepmom are besties and we took TONS of family photos
🌙 Literally EVERYTHING about their ceremony: Ashley’s father’s best friend gave a reading during the ceremony & her aunt officiated, they surprised Ansley with a necklace, they had friends & family come up and bless their marriage, and they wrote their own vows
🌙 Ashley’s outfit change! After cocktail hour she changed into a jumpsuit
🌙 Heather’s daughter Ansley – she was just a bottle of sunshine!! She was always willing to ham it up in front of the camera for us
🌙 Ashley’s father and one of her sisters, Erica, passed away so Ashley & Heather had some of Erica’s artwork printed on napkins that were down at the cigar bar that was there in honor of her dad
🌙 I was obsessed with their reception decor, it was Mid-Summer Nights Dream themed and had lots of purple and organic pieces like fruit
