DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON'S LAST GREAT WATERFRONT ESTATE

On 14 stunning acres on the Ashley River stands a National Historic Place - and the last of its kind. A circa 1786 Main House with two piazzas. A grand lawn, bluestone, brick and oyster tabby terraces. A River House with indoor and outdoor spaces. Exquisite guest accommodations. All in an unrivaled, waterfront Lowcountry setting. This is Lowndes Grove.

Patrick Properties acquired Lowndes Grove in 2007 and gathered together a team of architects, artisans, landscape and interior designers for an historic renovation. The last great waterfront estate on the Charleston peninsula reopened in March 2008 with its relaxed and refined essence and stunning settings for truly spectacular events. Read less

All we can say is wow! Rachel, Amber, and the rest of the amazing team with Patrick Properties went above and beyond to make our dream day come to life. Not only is this property drop-dead gorgeous and true to its southern roots, but the service from their sales and catering team was out of this world. They made what was already a day filled with complete love and joy because of our families and friends that much more amazing simply because of their acts of kindness, attention to detail, and overall well-run execution. We had a plated dinner for 230 guests, and it went off without a hitch. We are STILL receiving rave reviews about the food and service, and we have a lot of foodies in our families! We truly cannot say thank you enough to the wonderful team behind this gorgeous venue. You will not be disappointed if you book this venue for your big day!

The most wonderful group of individuals - from the first email inquiry I sent until we left the night of our wedding. The most beautiful venue with the kindest, most helpful staff. I don't have words for how grateful I am for how hard these folks worked to make our day the most incredible of our lives. Every single detail was taken care of - I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, and the food is AMAZING!

My fiance and had our wedding reception at Lowndes Grove for our destination wedding in Charleston. We knew we wanted the reception here from the moment we saw pictures of the property: it OOZES Southern elegance and Charleston prestige, exactly what we were looking for. We ended up changing our wedding date just so we could have our reception here! That being said...if you want your ceremony/reception here, you need to book it early, like 18+ months early just to get your pick of dates. PPHG did a great job working with us and our planner to get exactly what we wanted for the reception, down to telling us when a local beer we wanted served was no longer being brewed and being on top of switching the selection. The great thing about Lowndes Grove (besides everything) was that it "comes" with a catering team, so one less thing to worry about. The food was excellent, as well.
Yes, it's expensive to have your wedding here, but well worth it. We had our wedding on a Friday, which was significantly less expensive. So if you aren't firm on your date, it's definitely something to look into.

This venue and the staff are great. It is an absolutely breathtaking and phenomenal venue and they do a great job making everything flow seamlessly. I have absolutely no regrets in choosing this venue and would highly recommend it to anyone getting married.

They require you use their catering and that you hire an event planner. Their food is delicious, and so are their cakes. The bar was great, but specialty drinks were pricey (and they can't serve shots at the bar).

The staff is helpful and easy to work with.

It's a splurge, but definitely worth it.

The wedding of my dreams came true by having my ceremony and reception at this elegant plantation. Working with the PPGM was smooth, professional, and made the wedding process and planning much easier. By utilizing their gorgeous back drop of the Ashley River and their beautiful plantation house, my wedding was literally perfect. I loved the idea of being so close to downtown yet you feel as if you are miles and miles away on this breathtaking plantation. They were very accommodating, as well as responsive. I asked millions of questions over the year and a half of planning my wedding, and they would get back to me within 24 hours, if not the exact hour I had asked! They went above and beyond not only during the wedding planning process but also the day of. And that is the most important part! I wish I could do it all again with my groom - and if I could, I would pick Lowndes Grove Plantation again and again. There is a reason that you must book your wedding a year in advance here - even the off months! I am so thankful to have had the wedding of my dreams become a reality and I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful venue.

Patrick Properties was great to work with. They are professionals from beginning to end and very organized. Lowndes Grove Plantation is what I had my heart set on from the moment I saw it. It is even grander in person and there is absolutely nothing like it. The water, the dock, the sunset, the house - the setting is absolute perfection. The tasting was exceptional and so fun and the food, drinks, and apps were absolutely delicious at the wedding. The tent and decor was fabulous. We had the best day of our life at Lowndes and the wedding was a complete dream come true. All day getting ready with my mom and bridesmaids was so fun and magical. Everything was super organized, and so fun and laid-back. The day was all about us. Lowndes is the ultimate wedding venue in the south. Nothing beats Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina!!!

Working with PPHG was well worth it because I had the wedding of my dreams. Everything I wanted I received. I was never the child to dream of a wedding, nor thought I would ever have a fabulous wedding. Looking at The Lowndes Grove, it screamed my name. The house is a beautiful plantation over looking the Ashley River. Why I chose this venue was because the ceremony and the reception could take place right there a few feet from one another, and the best part is you can utilize the whole house. It is very convenient. Plus having a great Frenchman Nico Romo cater your wedding is the best. People are still talking about how amazing the food turned out. My guest had a wonderful time. I loved the location- in the heart of Charleston, South Carolina.
