Hotel Bennett is the newest hotel in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. And we’re excited to say that Chloe and Blake’s wedding is only the SECOND
wedding hosted at the luxe hotel.
Chloe and Blake had a fresh locally woven welcome bag awaiting each guest in their room – filled to the top with local Charleston goodies, water bottles and a custom itinerary outlining the weekend festivities. The girls got ready in the hotel’s bridal suite with a wraparound balcony allowing for the most gorgeous photo of the bridesmaids seeing Chloe for the first time in her wedding dress. One of our favorite moments of the day was when Chloe’s grandmother helped escort the bride into the chapel
– talk about a picture perfect moment.
Our other favorite moment was the low country second line where a trumpet player (along with the Bride and Groom) led the guests from the chapel to cocktail hour at Hotel Bennett!
From Planning + Design Studio, Pure Luxe Bride:
It’s always a planner’s dream to be in a new venue with a blank canvas. Chloe’s vision was exactly what our team does best- garden, glam. High ceilings and crystal lighting with an outdoor garden brought inside for tabletop centerpieces and focal points elevated look entirely. Custom linens with personalized menus and curated tabletop pieces were the perfect way to invite guests for an incredible dining experience.
Chloe, reminiscing on her favorite part of the day;
I think I especially remember the moment after walking down the aisle with my new husband. We went into a small room into the back of the church to sign our marriage license. But before the license was brought back to us we were alone for a few moments in the room. We were both so happy and excited to officially be married that all we could do was hug and say how much we loved each other. We must have been standing there hugging for a couple minutes because we only pulled away once someone entered the room to give us the license. It wasn’t a big moment in front of all our guests but it was something really sweet that I didn’t plan on happening -especially since we did not expect to have much true alone time during our reception festivities!
