3rd Lowcountry Field Feast

The Lowcountry Field Feast put on by Annie at Byrdhouse PR is always my favorite fall event.  The first Field Feast fell on our anniversary night, so I always think of it as the best way to celebrate another year of marriage! However, Lindsay wasn’t able to attend this year (he was bummed), but I was happy to take my sister who had just moved down from NYC.  As we walked onto Jane Maybank’s beautiful riverside, live oak-sheltered property, just as the sun was starting to set my sister turned and said, “Wow. THIS is the lowcountry!” Quintessential. You can see her on the right in the picture above.  We are talking to Kate G from Lowcountry Local First.  (This was also the first night I wore my hand-stitched Alabama Chanin dress {hard to see the detail in this pic}…the process of making that dress is so dear to my heart you will be reading about it for many posts to come….)

The weather was glorious. The invitations and menus designed by my friends Amy and Courtney at Stitch were brilliantly beautiful, as usual!  The Maybank property where Meg Moore operates Dirthugger Farm was breathtaking.  Mike Lata, from FIG, incorporated all of her bounty into the mouthwatering dishes his whole team prepared for us.  We dined, laughed, and maybe drank a little too much wine under the stars and live oaks.  It was the perfect fall evening.  The talented Brennan Wesley captured it all with his camera, the two photos I have used here are his.
