Real Weddings: Kacie + Darby


I’m a South Carolina girl at heart, so I simply adore Kacie and Darby’s wedding, set at one of my favorite venues in the world, the Inn at Palmetto Bluff, and photographed by the incredible Nashan Photographers.

Guests were welcomed to the lowcountry with beautiful jute gift bags and lovely palm fans.



The ceremony took place in Palmetto Bluff’s Waterside Chapel – a simple and stunning small chapel with wooden pews and loads of sunshine.  Each aisle was decorated with lush pink and green florals in glass vases, tied with ribbons to the pew.




In true lowcountry tradition, a gospel choir performed during the ceremony.  If you haven’t ever experienced a ceremony with a choir, trust me, that moment… it’s just one of those magical ones.




In the reception, Kacie and Darby complemented the natural beauty of their venue with baby blue linens, place cards set on beds of wheatgrass, and beautiful, lush, pink and green centerpieces by H.B. Stems of Beaufort.  The event was flawlessly coordinated by Katie Huebel from WED in Charleston, SC.






The cake by Jim Smeal added a whimsical touch to the event!



Favorite shot – fireworks on a warm South Carolina night completes a perfect party!

    Any idea where the jute gift bags came from? They are so beautiful! I’d love to have them at my Destination wedding in Punta Cana!
