There is something so magical about rehearsal dinners: the joy of family and friends reuniting, the excited anticipation of the wedding to come, and most of all, the opportunity for the bride and groom to put their months of planning to rest and just be present. While they can range from backyard barbecues to five-course country club dinners, we have a soft spot for couples who use this event to showcase something special about their wedding location. Tim and Claire were married on Kiawah Island, so they chose to celebrate the evening before their wedding with a traditional Lowcountry oyster broil. Our beloved Blue Ribbon Vendors, Landon and Jordan of Landon Jacob Photography, were on hand to capture every stunning Southern detail, and we were so excited to share it in V6!
From the bride:
The natural beauty of Mingo Point speaks for itself–it is a beautiful outdoor venue with plenty of Southern charm, overlooking the stunning river around Kiawah Island. We wanted to dress it up, just a bit, to create a warm, inviting environment for the special moments that happened during our rehearsal dinner. We loved the idea of the oyster broil–it really fit our style and personality. Oyster broils are often done here during the summers, and ours was such an experience for our friends and family who are not from the South. We wanted everyone to try something new!
Taking a moment to take a step back and see the people we love most loving one another reminded us how blessed we are, and that’s what made our rehearsal dinner so special. We loved all of the small moments that our friends shared with us and each other to create an evening we will cherish forever.
