We're going to keep the words to a minimum today with Paige & Chris' Palmetto Bluff wedding and let Donna Von Bruening's images do the talking because it's just that fabulous. Dallas native Paige and her Boston-bred groom decided on a destination wedding in the heart of the Lowcountry for their late September celebration. They tapped Todd Events to create a floral wonderland at Montage Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina and he effortlessly turned their dreams into a reality. The theme of "more is more" started with Paige's stunning Monique Lhuillier gown and continued in the awe-inspiring, floral adorned ceremony arch at The May River Chapel. After swapping ceremony vows, a chorus erupted into "Oh Happy Day" as guests moved to an outdoor cocktail hour along the water. But it wasn't until the reception when the real party started! In the ballroom, floral chandeliers draped with lanterns hung from the ceiling while fluffy hydrangea floral runners, accented with tall candelabras, topped the tables. After a Lowcountry-inspired dinner, the crowd turned their attention to a fabulous five-tiered cake from Minette Rushing Custom Cakes for dessert. The rest of the evening was spent on the dance floor where Party on the Moon stole the show before the couple departed under a shower of flower petals.  They hopped on the back of a convertible and waved goodbye as fireworks lined the drive!
