One couple throws a casual summer fête inspired by the simple beauty of the surrounding landscape.

The bride—a South Carolina-born Southern belle—fell for the weathered facade of Bybee-Howell House and its adjoining orchard. "I love distressed furniture, which is so often found in old beach homes," she confesses. "The kind of furniture that doesn't compete with natural beauty, but allows weathering to become a loveliness of its own." Photo: James Fitzgerald III
