Having painted this stunning venue dozens of times, we are so excited to share 4 ideas for a live wedding painting at Lowndes Grove! As a Charleston Live Wedding Painter for the last decade, Lowndes Grove has been one of Ben’s favorite wedding venues to paint! And year after year, we fall more in love with this magical property that’s tucked away downtown and overlooks a gorgeous low-country marsh view. There’s nothing like the experience of listening to a live band, sipping champagne, and watching two people promise forever together as the sun sets over the water.

Lowndes Grove Live Wedding Painting Ideas

The truth is, Lowndes Grove is so beautiful that it could truly be captured from every vantage point. It’s always so exciting for us to hear which view our couples ultimately decide on for their Live Wedding Painting. We thought it would be fun to compile examples from over the years of a few of our favorite Lowndes Grove Live Wedding Paintings.

1.) Lowndes Grove Reception, River View

Up first for our Lowndes Grove Live Wedding Painting ideas is this reception with a view of the river! The first dance is one of our favorite subjects for Live Wedding Paintings at Lowndes Grove! There’s so much heart and soul invested into the design and decor for each wedding. Not to mention that you still have an incredible view of the water front under the tent! The first dance is a great option for our Lowndes Grove couples who want to include their event design, the waterfront view, and key family and friends!

2.) Lowndes Grove Ceremony, River View

Though Ben has painted the ceremony waterfront view from the lawn at Lowndes Grove countless times, no sunset is ever the same! And that’s what makes every painting so unique. We love that some couple choose to include their full wedding party, while others opt to just include the two of them. There are no rules! We love seeing the creative direction our couples take for their ceremony paintings!

3.) Lowndes Grove Ceremony, House View

There’s just something so romantic about historic Charleston architecture and the home at Lowndes Grove is absolutely gorgeous. It’s no surprise that many of our couples have their heart set on including the home in the backdrop of their Live Wedding Painting. And this is long before the series Outer Banks came along!

4.) Lowndes Grove Reception, Dinner View

We are obsessed with this Lowndes Grove Live Wedding Painting idea! We loved how this Lowndes Grove couple chose their reception with the house in the backdrop for their live wedding painting. They were so excited about their innovative event design and knew that’s what they wanted for their background. Their dinner space included an open-air “tent” that was custom built just for their dinner. Guests dinned alfresco in front of the Lowndes Grove house. We loved how their live painting turned out, choosing a styled moment of the reception as their guests enjoyed their evening dinner.
