Beaufort, SC is one of my favorite towns to plan weddings in for many reasons, which I could easily create an entirely separate blog post about. Our bride, Katy was born-and-raised in Beaufort, so when it came time to plan her wedding to Fred, they knew right where it would be – in her quaint, waterfront hometown.

Katy and Fred were married at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, followed by a tented reception with 175 guests at the Beaufort Inn. Katy wanted a look that was crisp and organic with elements from the Lowcountry. Her colors were green and ivory with accents of rustic brown. We incorporated mixed metals of gold and copper to tie in with the ombre of browns in the magnolia leave accents, which graced every floral arrangement. I especially loved the hanging designs, which served as a focal point above the bar and dance floor.

Katy and Fred planned a strolling reception for their guests and had food stations sprinkled around the expansive tent. Chef Nick cooked up everything from quail and duck to some of the family’s secret recipes. For dessert, Minette Rushing of Custom Cakes Savannah created a tiered wedding cake with sugar magnolias and a hand drawn replica of their custom monogram.

Thank you Evan Laettner for capturing their wedding day so beautifully through your lens.
