Shawn&Lauren’s wedding in Charleston South Carolina wedding film at Lowndes Grove Plantation is here! We can assure you it will be a wedding we’ll never forget!!
Ever since we skyped with these two, heard their story and listened to the dreams they had when envisioning this wonderful day, we were giddy with excitement to see it all come together! First, let’s just talk about this venue! This place is drop dead gorgeous, inside and out. Walking into the historic estate, past large ancient trees and perfectly manicured greenery, you’ll see the plantation style house. Inside this mansion’s three stories are many rooms, all of which are timelessly decorated, with the perfect pastel palette for pretty wedding details. Needless to say, we were in heaven.
We first met Lauren three and a half years ago in Florida at Jonathan&Erin’s wedding. Lauren was a bridesmaid and getting an email several years later from her explaining her plans to get married to her sweetheart in Charleston totally made our day. We love our TréCreative Family and awesome referrals like this! Being at this wedding felt like a little reunion seeing our past couple and their cute new baby Aurora (who you’ll see in the film).
Shawn&Lauren met while attending the Medical University of South Carolina. They were put into small groups to get to know students from other programs and to chat about their different professions. Shawn first noticed how cute Lauren was and Lauren noticed Shawn’s charm and wit, although neither of them actually said hello at that meeting. Luckily for them, the story doesn’t end there. The University just so happened to be throwing an oyster party later that night where with some encouragement they introduced themselves. The rest is history and a little after three years these two were engaged. We loved how these two incorporated elements of their story within their wedding day. You’ll see oysters throughout their wedding details as a little nod to this moment where they officially started talking.
After moving several times together after school, Shawn&Lauren decided to plan a wedding in Charleston, where it all began. Charleston is filled with amazing restaurants and beautiful picturesque and historic scenery everywhere you turn. Guests came from all over to celebrate with these two as they became husband and wife.
Shawn&Lauren were married on the front lawn looking towards the dock at Lowndes Grove and had a reception to follow on the back patio. There was a live band that entertained and kept the dance floor completely packed throughout the night, they were so talented and full of energy! The decor and decorations Shawn&Lauren chose for the reception were so beautiful. They tied in a nautical seashell theme with beautiful vases of white and blush floral arrangements all along the guest’s seating tables.
We loved crafting this wedding film for these two to remember such a fun day! We loved their Officiant’s Southern flare and the heartfelt vows they promised one another during the ceremony. The readings and speeches from friends and family were meaningful and moving, and to cap it off, the day ended with so much fun dancing and celebrating as well as a sparkler send off then a romantic boat ride off into the night. We feel so honored that these two entrusted their wedding day photography and videography to us. We feel this way for every wedding, but especially destination weddings that include long travel distances. We had an amazing time in Charleston with these two and cannot wait for the next opportunity to return there. Charleston will definitely hold a special place in our hearts from here on out and every time we visit we’ll think of these two and their love story!
