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.

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.
