Sublime Elegance | European elegance meets bohemian-chic sensibility for this fête at Lowndes Grove Plantation
Lorianna Ferrogine & Mark Stickler

Lowndes Grove Plantation

Sometimes in love, if you take a backseat, fate intervenes. Take Annapolis, Maryland’s Lorianna Ferrogine and Mark Stickler, who met while sharing a cab during a blizzard. Three years later, the couple was engaged and turned to Ooh! Events to design their wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation. Lorianna hoped for a marriage of European garden elegance and carefree Bohemian chic, which Ooh’s Lisa Thomas embraced. “If you’re willing to try new things, it’s fun to balance differing design elements,” says Lisa, who created a “barefoot in the French countryside” vibe. Dressed in a light palette of champagne, cream, and blush, delicate accents like tall, wispy flowers, comfortable lounge furniture, and an open-sky tent filled the plantation grounds with Lowcountry luxury and French country warmth.
