We’ve seen plenty of friends come and go over the course of Southern Charm, but there are some that, though they may no longer make TV appearances, are still recurring characters in the cast’s off-camera lives. Take Jennifer Snowden, for example.
An official guest and friend of the cast between Seasons 2 and 5 of Southern Charm, Jennifer is still close with numerous Charm-ers, including Naomie Olindo, Leva Bonaparte, Shep Rose, and Taylor Ann Green. But what else is she up to? Keep scrolling to learn all about Jennifer’s current pursuits, including her career and adorable son, Ascher.
Is Jennifer Snowden married?
Jennifer Snowden married her longtime love, Lee, in January 2022 in a beautiful ceremony in the Bahamas.
The pair, who share son Ascher (born in 2016), revealed their engagement in May 2020.
"I forgot to tell y'all the funniest story. So everybody keeps asking what Ascher thinks about us getting married and he doesn't really understand what getting married means,” Jennifer said during Instagram Stories at the time. “He keeps thinking that we're saying, 'We're getting buried,' and he keeps asking if we're gonna have dirt put on us," she said. "I just thought that was so cute and that y'all would like to hear it."
Jennifer Snowden’s son, Ascher, survived brain encephalocele
Jennifer and Lee share a son, James Ascher, who was born in September 2016. While Jennifer was pregnant, Ascher (who goes by his middle name) was diagnosed with a brain encephalocele — a place where his skull didn't close during pregnancy, through which his brain initially protruded. He had surgery on the day he was born to help protect his brain, which Jennifer revealed in Season 4.
She shared on Instagram that he had a second surgery for his condition in July 2021. On the first anniversary of the surgery — amid pictures of him thriving — she shared her thoughts.
"This week is the 1 year anniversary of my baby defying medical odds," she wrote in July 2022. "I want to post this because I want my son to always know how in awe of him I’ll always be."
In September 2023, Jennifer shared a sweet message to celebrate her son on his birthday.
“Happy 7th Birthday to my baby! I’m so lucky to be your mommy & couldn’t be more proud of you Ascher! To all of our Insta family: I’ll never be able to thank y’all enough for your prayers that I believe made his life possible,” she wrote via Instagram. “He also is losing his 1st tooth on his bday — bit into an Oreo & it is now hanging on by a thread.”
According to Jennifer’s Instagram, the mother and son duo are constantly having fun together, enjoying everything from pool parties to museum jaunts and ice cream dates.

Jennifer Snowden’s Southern Charm Friendships
In August 2022, Shep popped up in a series of photos posted to Instagram by Jennifer, and she offered up some intel on what their hangout session was like.
“Captain Mommy at the helm! We have a boat, a dock and Lee is too afraid to take us on the boat by ourselves, so today I showed him mama knows what’s up, let’s use this thing” she wrote. “Shep, you made my day sweet friend; love you!”
But Jennifer isn’t just pals with Shep. When she and Lee married in January 2022, Naomie Olindo attended their wedding. “Most epic weekend ever. Love you so much,” Naomie shared on her Instagram story after the nuptials.
Naomie also included highlights from the wedding in a series of photos she posted on main, captioning the pics, “Photo dump: life lately.” Jennifer then re-shared them in a series of friends' photos from her wedding.
