Here at Monthly, we love the themes in this issue: humor, creativity and luxury. Our fall fashion shoot at the stunning Bluffton Inn had all of the above: lots of laughter, artistic designs by local boutiques, fine jewelry by Forsythe Jewelers and just the right amount of glam. Check out photographer Jackie Friel’s work starting on page 68. We’re grateful to all the talent who made this shoot magical. In other sections, read about glamping in the Smoky Mountains, outdoor parties centered around firepits, flying lessons over Hilton Head Island and more. These stories celebrate the great outdoors because November has some of the area’s best weather — that’s why many of the Lowcountry’s biggest annual events take place in the 11th month of the year. From festivals and galas to national cycling event Pedal Hilton Head, in this issue we’ve got you covered when it comes to fun things to do.
