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.

Photography: Kay English | Event, floral, and invitation design: Reverie Events | Location: Palmetto Bluff

    Thanks so much for featuring Kelly and Ted’s rehearsal dinner! We absolutely adored designing this event, from the flowers to the decor. The bluegrass band was so much fun and everyone had such a lovely time. A wonderful celebration for a wonderful bride and groom.

Happy Monday, friends! Here’s a fun story for you. Josh McCullock and Gibson Events placed a joint ad in Southern Weddings V5. Lara became a little obsessed with the photo they used for their ad, and we all wondered where it had come from. Imagine my delight, then, when Lindsay submitted this shoot to us, containing that very photo! The story behind the shoot is really neat, so make sure you read on for all the details below. And be sure to jot down some notes along the way — I know I’m taking some for my next dinner party!

From Lindsay: As a planner I’m frequently asked for recommendations for photographers, and to describe each photographer’s style. I thought it might be interesting to style a large scale photo shoot and have several photographers capture it in the way they saw fit. My hope was for the result was to have a side by side contrast of the same event through four lenses. We present the photos with watermarks so viewers can make their own comparison.

We gathered four couples (all former clients from the past year) and got to it. We assigned a couple to each photographer. To make sure we weren’t playing favorites we styled the shoot as an engagement or dinner party so no one got the “bride and groom”.

It took a pretty awesome looking spreadsheet but we managed for each photographer to have time with their couple alone, with everyone together, to shoot each vignette individually and to shoot each vignette with their couple.

For this shoot we had a specific aesthetic in mind and really lucked into our venue. Luckily the good people at Calvert’s Plant Interiors were willing to trust the vision and allowed us to come in on a Sunday, when they were closed, and basically take over the site.

Here’s the photo from the ad!

The second purpose of the shoot was to have an awesome collection of photos to promote The Ball and Chain; A thoughtfully curated bridal show that doesn’t feel like torture. This will be a small, boutique bridal event featuring the vendors below and a few more of our dearest friends in the business that share our aesthetic. Coming to Oklahoma City on January 24, 2013.

Huge thank yous to Lindsay and all the vendors who helped pull this day together! Looks like a dinner party you’d like to be invited to, yes?

Gibson Events and Josh McCullock are fabulous members of our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!

String lights, all white table settings with sweet succulent-flled details and… a piñata! Maconda + Sacha’s elegant Texas wedding (with a twist) looks like my kind of party. I love how M + S played off the natural beauty of the perfectly Southern The Argyle mansion with their classically understated decor.

I also love the sense of family they so effortlessly created. Reggie from Phenom Photographers, who was on hand to document Maconda + Sacha’s big day, told us that one thing that struck him from the beginning with this couple was the overwhelming feeling of family. From the beginning I just felt like I belonged there, almost like a cousin with a film camera.

Such dapper gents! I ‘m quite fond of the trend of mixed bridesmaid’s dresses, and I must say I love that Sacha and his groomsmen went the mix’n’match route with their tuxes.

I love Maconda’s smile in the photo on the right. Her joy jumps right out of the screen!

The Byrd Collective did a stunning job creating florals that flowed perfectly with the lush landscape of The Argyle lawn. Sometimes less is more – there is such beauty in the simplicity of these arrangements.

How much fun do you bet this was? I love the idea of a piñata at the reception!

Thanks again to Reggie for sharing this beauty with us!

    Very classical wedding though it is very elegant… I have nothing to add, nothing beats the classic styles no matter how much we try.

    The dress is very beautiful. The fabric is very smooth and it is very shining.
