Casey Witkowski and Joshua Tierney are proof that you can get married in the sweltering Hilton Head humidity of July and not regret it.

“It was a hot, sunny day, but we knew it was going to be, which is why we had everything inside that could be inside,” said Casey of her July 14 nuptials. Luckily, between gorgeous venues like Saint Andrew Chapel, where they tied the knot, and Callawassie Island Clubhouse, where they celebrated with friends and family afterward, the Lowcountry can be a beautifully cool place to wed year-round.

When you grow up surrounded by the beauty of the Lowcountry, your life’s backdrop is already the perfect wedding setting. And Halle Boni Keiffer knew it.

“I didn’t want a ton of decorations,” the Bluffton native said of her May 27 nuptials to Nicholas Keiffer. “I’m very, very simple, I just wanted lots of natural stuff.  I love the oak trees, the moss, the leaves. I love the blooming magnolia trees.”

Generally speaking, wedding planners are a combination of personal assistant, event co-chair and fairy godmother. They suggest, assist, organize, double-check and generally get things done. But when Hurricane Matthew battered Hilton Head Island one week before Amy and Jason Loizides’ scheduled October 15, 2016 wedding, Celebrations Catering & Events coordinator Jackie Brino became more than a wedding planner: She became a miracle worker.

Maggie Lowther and Robbie Kelly were married September 3, 2016 at Honey Horn, a day after Tropical Storm Hermine blew through the Lowcountry, leaving debris and tree limbs in her wake.

Luckily, the easygoing bride took it all in stride.

Every wedding has the opportunity to become the bride and groom’s work of art. For Katherine Palmeri, that goal was taken literally.

The artist hand-painted all of her printed materials, then worked with the pros at Savannah Print Factory to digitize her artwork and design the invitations, save the date cards, table numbers, menu cards, place cards and every other bit of paper for the weekend.

Kentucky Derby-themed wedding at hit at Harbour Town

For a bride who grew up in Sea Pines and a groom who hails from Louisville, Kentucky, the Harbour Town wedding of Megan Dolyniuk and Stewart Koch on May 7, 2016 — the same day as the famed horse race in Stewart’s hometown — was a destination wedding with a bit of derby celebration.

Childhood memories brought first-kiss sweethearts back to Hilton Head

They may have married young, but Morgan Welch Blackburn, 21, and Robert “Robby” Blackburn, 24, had a pretty long courtship, considering.

“They were first kiss sweethearts,” says Amy Welch, who helped her daughter Morgan plan the June 11 wedding at Harbour Town Yacht Club. “They met in parochial school; she was in his little sister’s class and she fell in love with him at 12 years old.”
