A live wedding painting at Charleston's iconic Lowndes Grove Plantation

As locals to Charleston, Ashley and Blake's wedding day was overflowing with chic Lowcountry style with a pop of prep.  Their ceremony and reception were both held at Charleston's iconic Lowndes Grove Plantation, tucked away on the upper Peninsula.  Lilly Pulitzer herself would have approved of everything from their color palette to the gold pineapple table accents.  One of the most unforgettable moments was when Ashley and her father arrived in a horse drawn carriage, just before walking down the aisle.    (Every girl's DREAM!)  Ashley and Blake commissioned Ben to capture their ceremony overlooking the gorgeous coastal landscape of the Ashley River.  Following the ceremony, Ben relocated under the tented reception to continue painting for guests to enjoy.  Needless to say, we are so pleased to share their finished live wedding painting!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding Stationery

A beautiful way to say thank you!

We just had to share another example of our custom stationery featuring the bride and groom's live wedding painting on the cover!  Ashley + Blake said I do at Lowndes Grove Plantation this summer and had an absolutely gorgeous ceremony on the lawn overlooking the lowcountry coastal landscape.  Ben is always so excited to have the opportunity to paint a waterfront wedding as his gallery work primarily focuses on Coastal Landscapes!  (Check out BenKeys.com to see more!)  Ashley and Blake's painting is still in progress and we can't wait to reveal their finished live wedding painting!   In the meantime, Ashley is so excited to get started sending her wedding guests an extra special Thank You for being part of their wedding day!
