I’m so excited to share today’s double-feature with you, because I’ve had the good fortune of visiting its gorgeous venue! Kelly + Ted chose to hold their wedding weekend at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff, a magical venue in South Carolina. Think I’m exaggerating? Their rehearsal dinner spot boasts a multi-level tree house! Combined with an oyster roast, a live bluegrass band, and dinner under the stars, these two welcomed their guests in true Lowcountry style.

Be sure to check back soon for their Palmetto Bluff wedding, also photographed by Kay English!

We welcomed guests with a Lowcountry Boil Welcome Dinner on Saturday night, under the stars on the May River. The Lowcountry Boil featured string lights, white pennant banners, flowers in oyster cans, and a live bluegrass band. People danced, people sang, and the kids had fun climbing in the treehouse and coloring a mural for the bride and groom.

THIS is country done right, my friends! Though both are DC residents, Kristin + Ryan chose to host their wedding weekend on Kiawah Island in South Carolina, since both vacationed there throughout childhood. Leigh Webber was on hand to capture all the details of the Kiawah Island Resort rehearsal dinner, including gingham tablecloths and sweet clutches of wild flowers. And the food? Oh, man: fresh oysters shoveled onto the shuckin’ tables still steaming, succulent fried okra, grilled Carolina quail, red beans and rice, jalapeno cheddar cornbread, and — of course — sweet tea to wash it all down. Hominy Grill added from-scratch Southern cakes and pies for dessert, and guests toasted their own s’mores to end the night. What a way to start your wedding weekend!
