Weddings are always a chance for southern hospitality to shine. So we'd expect nothing less from Savannah and Henry's wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston. They hosted a fabulous party with gorgeous details (thanks to planner Lindsey Shanks of A Charleston Bride and floral design by Tiger Lily Weddings) and a band that had them dancing late into the night. Photographers Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay shared their beautiful images and we know you'll love!!!
Tell us your love story:
We originally met at an industry conference in Scottsdale, AZ. What started as a business relationship turned to friendship and we eventually started dating. We dated long distance for 9-10 months and saw each other literally every single week from Atlanta to Boston. If we missed each other on a weekend, Henry would fly down mid-week to have dinner and fly out on the 7AM flight the next morning. Eventually, we got tired of the travel so I moved to Boston.
On the 1 year anniversary of my move to Boston, we decided to head out of work early on a Monday night and head down to our house on Nantucket. We opened a good bottle of wine and packed up some snacks, music and our dog Roscoe to head down to the beach to watch the sunset. As the sun set over the horizon, Henry suggested we stand up to get a better view and he took a knee and asked me to marry him.
Tell us about your wedding:
Henry is from NY and it was very important for us to show his family why we love the south. I’d say the food was the biggest southern influence, which included fried chicken, duck buns with coleslaw, shrimp and grits, etc. My favorite detail was the café lighting by the water. The lights looked amazing and carried a romantic atmosphere out from the tent to the sitting area by the water. Our vision of our wedding was a beautiful ceremony by the water and a HUGE party. Our band was truly amazing and we danced all night!!
