A Charleston Wedding at Lowndes Grove
If Lowndes Grove looks familiar to you, you might be an Outer Banks fan. The big white house is featured on the show as Sarah Cameron’s home. It’s an 18th century estate turned wedding venue, and it’s every bit as beautiful in real life as it is on the TV show.
We were given the opportunity to shoot at Lowndes Grove through involvement in the Bespoke Workshop. We shot for three days straight in and around Charleston, and there wasn’t a single day that we didn’t come back to the Airbnb with sore feet, full memory cards, and happy hearts.
We had the pleasure of shooting Krystina’s bridal prep in this creamy peach room full of windows and the best natural light. I love how the delicate pastel floral details on her gown compliment her bouquet and the room itself. Speaking of the bouquet, the florals for this wedding editorial were designed and arranged by the extremely talented Michaela Mantarian. The concept for the full day was a collaboration between all of the incredible artists and vendors listed at the bottom of this post. All of them are absolutely rockstars.
The handpainted bottle of Veuve, the delicate floral stationery suite, and the ivory accessories all complemented the elegant Southern vibe. Out on the front lawn, under a sprawling tree, the team set up long tables for a formal dinner. Crystal, china, and patterned tablecloths adorned with hand-painted candles and fluffy flowers set the scene for a romantic dinner.
This day was perfectly coordinated and designed from start to finish. So many truly beautiful moments to capture. Here are some more from this unforgettable day in Charleston, South Carolina.
So grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented group of wedding professionals. Cheers!! And here’s to another year of the Bespoke Workshop, this year in 30A. Stay posted for beachy, sunshiny Florida coastal vibes coming soon!

“She helped me throughout the entire engagement, even when I had questions that didn't have to do with videography! I worried about NOTHING my wedding day because she spent time laying out the day and made sure it was flawless, making sure I felt confident in everything! Most importantly, I felt like I came out of the engagement and wedding day with a new friend. If "infinite stars" was a choice, I would choose it - but I guess I'll settle with 5!!!”
"Not only is Leslee a joy to work with, she is extremely professional, and one of the kindest people I know!"
"I've got nothing but compliments on the video, and I have nothing but compliments about her professionalism and kindness! She is the absolute sweetest person you will ever meet, and constantly strives to make your day perfect and meet your needs. I SO HIGHLY recommend Leslee for your videographer!”
"After one "get to know you" phone call, we were already good friends and I knew she'd do a great job!"
"On my wedding day, I was worried it may be awkward having someone I don't know in the room while I was getting ready, but it was the complete opposite of that. She fit right in and was actually a really calming presence to have around. When we got our video, I watched it immediately over and over again and couldn't stop crying. It was so beautifully put together. We got SO many compliments on it. My brother didn't even cry when his own children were born and he teared up watching our wedding video!! That's how good Leslee is!”
"I don't even have the words to say how amazing Leslee is!"
“She is insanely talented and was able to create a film that highlighted all of our favorite moments throughout the day and included all of our favorite people. I am so grateful that we chose Leslee as our videographer, and I couldn't recommend her enough. She has such a warm and calming presence and was so so sweet to work with.”
"After seeing our film and working with Leslee it was truly like she had known us for years"
