To see their smiles is to love Kate & Clint. And to see their love set against the beautiful oaks of St. Helena, well, that’s the real treat! The evening was tied with a bow being set against a full moon and king tide – and a dolphin even made an appearance! An omen of good luck if we’ve ever seen one!
The Hamby favorites our clients have come to love were well in play, featuring mini tomato pies, chicken & waffle bites, caprese skewers and more. Our stations held the main event, featuring chef-attended shrimp and grits, sliders & Southern Pasta Bakes. The evening was topped with buttermilk fried chicken nuggets as savory treat during the bride and groom’s exit.
The ceremony was held outside the main house in front of the marsh at sunset. From there, guests were lead to a large tent for a seated dinner and dancing just adjacent to the main house. The exit was the pièce de résistance, featuring the adorable This Lil Figgy.
Nestled on St. Helena Island, Agapae Oaks is bordered on two sides by undeveloped marshlands, and is graced with countless trees including palmettos, Spanish moss-laden oaks, and cedars. The Historic main house has been present since 1790 and is surrounded by an aged pecan orchard, dock, wooded area and marsh.
