15 Dec Samantha & Mario | Lowndes Grove Plantation
Settle in, sweeties, for we have a wedding sure to make your hearts go pitter-patter. Samantha and Mario, who met in Chicago, planned a wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation brimming from top to bottom with inspiration and we simply cannot get contain our excitement about it all. Before saying their “I do’s,” Mario surprised Samantha with a hilarious handwritten note on the bottom of her glitzy Badgley Mischka wedges. “Don’t use these to run away! Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you! #GoCocks” the note read. Chuckles, all around. After a meaningful first look and a stunning ceremony (the bride’s sister walked her down the aisle), the two celebrated the night away with family, friends, and even Cocky, University of South Carolina famed mascot. From that outrageously gorgeous bridal bouquet overflowing with garden roses, ranunculus, peonies, and lilac compliments of floral maven by Andraya Northrup of FLORA, to those so in-vogue patterned Show Me Your Mumu bridesmaids’ dresses, to the 16-foot bar area dubbed the “Mega Bar,” this is one Big Day that will never go out of style.
