A Timeless Summer Wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina

Jackie Rodriguez (29 and a lawyer) and William Branson Lee (29 and a lawyer) pictured a relaxed, outdoor summer wedding, and when they found that at the enchanting Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. “It was the perfect summer day with clear blue skies,” Jackie says of their outdoor ceremony under an old oak tree overlooking the water. Soft hues of peach, blush and gold were incorporated throughout the open venue creating a natural, romantic atmosphere. A bold custom gold-leaf monogram was featured prominently in the decor, appearing on their favors, napkins, menu and even on the half-moon bar by the lake, complete with a chandelier hanging from a tree. “When our wedding planner told us it was time to cut the cake, we said we were having too much fun and didn't want to cut the cake," Jackie says. "When our wedding planner asked us if we would regret that decision, we both replied 'no.' We still have no regrets." —Jen Leahy
