23 Mar Hillary & Logan | Lowndes Grove Plantation
The summer Hillary (the woman behind hautewithhillary.com) was interning at Kleinfeld’s in New York City, she turned 23 and was dying for her boyfriend Logan to visit for the birthday celebrations (he was back Ohio, where they both lived). Logan used every excuse in the book for why he couldn’t come, so Hillary headed out instead with her girlfriends. They got all dressed up, she says, and ventured to Brooklyn for lunch. Along the way, they stopped at Brooklyn Bridge Park and the gals got Hillary to turn, back to them, to pose for a skyline shot. When she whirled back around—you guessed it—there was Logan on one knee. From there, the pair traveled to Charleston for their wedding (she says it was on a trip here that they knew each other was “the one”), and fashioned a gorgeous fete in almost all white to echo the icy crisp hue of Lowndes Grove Plantation’s manse. “When I say all white,” says Hillary, “I mean all white. I got so many looks while we ordered white bridesmaid dresses. “Isn’t the bride supposed to be the only one in white?” everyone asked. Traditionally, yes, but I have never been one to follow the crowd.” Take a peek at photographer Lydia Ruth’s shots to see how the chic couple’s Big Day played out, and happy weekend, all!
