WHERE THE HEART IS: The bride and groom exchanged vows at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff’s Waterside Chapel.
WARM WELCOME: “I wanted to keep the flowers simple and elegant,” says Jacki. “We chose a color palette of whites, creams, and greens and selected season flowers.”
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD: Florist Sue Burton mixed white parrot tulips with Baby’s Breath and other seasonal blooms.
GOING TO THE CHAPEL: “The property sits right on the May River, so it incorporated our love of the water!" says Jacki.
RING AROUND THE POSIE: Boxwood wreaths tied with cream-colored silk ribbons wove the receptions preppy palette into the ceremony
ALL IN LINE: Florist Sue Burden finished the bridesmaids’ hydrangea bouquets with bright blue and white striped ribbon.
HUNG WITH CARE: Greens added freshness to the Waterside Chapel’s antique and understated interior.
EASY DOES IT: For ceremony décor, Sue fashioned wreaths from boxwood leaves.
STAMP OF APPROVAL: Ceremony programs by stationer Lettered Olive were capped with an emblem of an ancient oak.
MATCHY, MATCHY: Though John and his groomsmen donned their own black tuxedos, they were kept uniform with each other (and the wedding’s pallete!) in blue Vineyard Vines bow ties and cummerbunds.
YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE: Reverend Lou Lunardini of Bluffton officiated the nuptials.
THE REAL DEAL: “We had gone back and forth on whether we should do a ‘first look’ with our photographer,” says the bride. “We opted against it because we wanted that ‘special moment,’ and boy, did we get it!”
COME RAIN OR SHINE: The Inn at Palmetto Bluff offered hors d’eouvres during cocktail hour.
HANGING OUT: Spencer Special Events used palette-matching ribbons to hang escort cards from arrangement branches.
MAP IT OUT: In lieu of a guest book, John had the idea to lay out a map of the Lowcountry for guests to sign.
HIGH-END: The evening’s color scheme complemented the River House Ballroom’s white and beige interior.
A LOVELY LANDSCAPE: Clear and mercury glass vessels held simple arrangements and candles at varying heights.
FRESH EFFECT: Beige table linens set the backdrop for arrangements of white tulips and white and green hydrangea.
LET’S EAT: King tables were arranged around the River House’s plantation porch.
TOP THAT: The dessert was embellished with the couple’s custom monogram and Swiss dots.
WHITE WONDER: Minette Rushing Custom Cakes made a two-flavored buttercream confection of red velvet and chocolate caramel cake.
CHEERS! The newlyweds—who shared a first dance to Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight”—departed amid guests’ sparklers.
