Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked behind a private, gated entrance on the Lowndes estate, this welcoming waterfront venue is perfect for intimate affairs, and offers stunning views of those legendary Low Country sunsets.
  • After your "I dos" overlooking the Ashley River, you can celebrate on the dreamy grounds beneath the soaring, fairy light-draped branches of ancient oak trees.
  • Incorporate the gracious River House into your celebration however you like—its French doors open onto a sweet brick patio that flows to the rest of the property, giving you wonderful indoor/outdoor flexibility.
