08 Jun Sean & Lauren | Lowndes Grove Plantation
As posh as their pics may be, Sean and Lauren actually met one “wing night” at a bar in Manhattan. Don’t you just love how love knows no boundaries–of any sort? Years later, during a romantic getaway to Sugar Beach in Saint Lucia (we told you they were a fancy duo), Sean popped the question while the two were sailing past the Piton Mountains. “I smile every time I think about that day,” says Lauren. For their nuptials, they came to Charleston and to Lowndes Grove Plantation, which had been decked out with colorful blooms and glamorous décor by Pure Luxe Bride. After looking through their uber-elegant affair, some of my favorite shots are those of Lauren and her dad making their ceremony entrance after pulling up in a Rolls Royce. The rest of the bridal party proceeded to the aisle from the mansion, the bride tells us. Then there was a dramatic pause between the last bridesmaid walking out and Lauren and her father driving up. “Guests had no idea where I was,” she laughs.
