Andrea & Bob {Lowndes Grove Plantation}

Andrea & Bob {Lowndes Grove Plantation}

By | June 18, 2010

When I see Kim Graham’s name in my inbox, my heart goes pitter patter. I have these little love affairs when it comes to photographers. This gem of a wedding began with a ceremony at St. Luke’s Chapel officianted by a family member of the bride, a Catholic priest, who also took part in her parent’s wedding ceremony 31 years ago. The couple celebrated their reception at the elegant and luxurious  Lowndes Grove.

Our wedding was a destination wedding for everyone except Bob and me.  I am originally from Michigan and he from Connecticut so our friends and family were traveling some distance to be here on our wedding day.  The day before the wedding we had a Welcome Party and Rehearsal Dinner for everyone at the South Carolina Aquarium.

Charleston Wedding

We wanted to share the experience Lowcountry with our guests. We chose the historic setting of  Lowndes Grove, the Lowcountry food and favors of mini bottles of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.  Family and tradition were very important as well;  Both my maternal and paternal grandparents have been married for almost 60 years.  I carried an embroidered handkerchief handmade for the occasion by my maternal grandmother and the necklace I wore was handed down to me from my paternal grandmother and contains the diamond from my paternal great grandmother’s engagement ring.

Charleston Wedding

We had an unseasonably cool day for October in Charleston and it was pouring rain up until about three hours before the ceremony.  We managed to stay dry and everything worked out perfectly.  We currently reside on Johns Island.  If I had to pick my favorite “thing” from the wedding, I’d say it would have to be the flowers.  Whitney {now at Branch Design Studio} and Annie did such a great job.  The centerpieces were so lush and colorful and contained my favorite flowers, hydrangeas. My bouquet was truly unique and it suited me perfectly.

    I had the joy of attending this particular wedding ceremony and reception. Being there in person was just as amazing as the photographs are depicting! For being raised up north, Bob & Andrea sure do have the Lowcountry in their blood. Everything about the wedding spoke of Lowcountry elegance, simplicity, & grace. I am so glad to call the two of them my best friends, and to have shared their wedding day with them. Thank you for featuring the Saccullo’s on your site! It was great getting to relive that beautiful, fun day again.

    As the father of the bride I can’t say enough about the quality and reliability of all the vendors involved with Bob & Andrea’s wedding. Emmy of Peacock Events and my daughter planned and pulled off everything perfectly. I couldn’t be more proud of them and being part of this great event.

    Thanks to all of you who have responded and thanks to The Wedding Row for featuring their wedding.
