Spencer Special Events adored working with Lee & Brian along with their darling family and talented hand-picked vendors for their sweet summer affair at the charming Palmetto Bluff Resort located in beautiful Bluffton, South Carolina.
The love of the Low Country for the Dougherty’s began over 40 years ago when Lee’s mother began vacationing on Hilton Head Island. After Lee was born it continued to be a much-anticipated family trip. Lee re-introduced Brian to the island several years ago and he immediately shared in Lee’s love of this special place. It only seemed fitting that their wedding would take place in a place so close to her and her families’ hearts. After searching high and low throughout the Low Country, Lee and Brian felt at home at the Auberge Resort’s Palmetto Bluff and thrilled to share their vows with their closest family and friends in the Waterside Chapel. Complete with “Oh, Happy Day” performed joyfully by the Voices of El Shaddai gospel choir to celebrate the newlyweds.
This Coastal Chic venue was truly our inspiration in the design and details. Lee and Brian wanted a timeless, classic, and memorable wedding weekend for their guests with divine cuisine, fine wines, and a great band! The couple’s love for their family and friends was clear throughout the planning process, arrival of each and every guest to this destination wedding weekend, down to the fond farewell to conclude an amazing wedding day!

When it comes to the “less pretty” sides of wedding planning, we know it can be tough to justify spending your hard-earned dollars. So something like wedding insurance can fall to the low end of your priorities. But here’s the thing: it shouldn’t.
