The Lowcountry is defined by its location– the moods of the sea, the whims of the weather, the painterly colors of the marsh.  Deep in the barrier islands of the Lowcountry of the south Atlantic seaboard, lies a tiny spit of marsh and forests known simply as Callawassie Island.  

Onto the dock steps a decorated admiral, his crisp white uniform beckoning the egrets to stop and stare.  He escorts his daughter past the row of shrimp boats and sailboats to the the grassy lawn on shore.  They’ve come back again to this place, a magical place full of tall tales of sea going voyages and muddy realities.  The tent on the lawn was being erected, the power generator set up.  Here, where the blurry edge of land met the salty mists of the sea, nothing was a given.

The traditions of the sea– salt air, changing tides, and unpredictable rain squalls– provide the rhythm for the lives of those who call this tiny island home.  Whitney and Derek chose the stunning local beauty of South Carolina as the backdrop for their outdoor Callawassie Island wedding ceremony and reception.  Immediately we fell into the rhythm of the island, dodging rain squalls and walking long docks out into the marsh.  We became Carolinian, just for an evening– simple grace, unpretentious sophistication.  Backed by some of the most pristine and well-preserved salt marshes in the world, the couple exchanged vows and then danced in the outdoor tent until the power failed and the humid air enveloped them.  And then they kept dancing.
