This wedding was too fun and perfect for a fall wedding Wednesday, that we just had to pull it out of the archives. The weather could not have been more perfect for this warm fall afternoon ceremony overlooking the Kiawah River at the River Course on Kiawah Island, SC. Thank you to Liz Banfield for the images.
The perfect golf course green grass was the perfect backdrop for the green, orange, and brown harvest color palette we used for the wedding decor all based on graphic designer bride’s paper suite.
Fluffy Dahlias, snowberries, and star of bethlehem make up the bride’s bouquet.
To designate an “alter” in such an expansive setting we took an ordinary brown linen and adorned it with orange mums. Orange mums were also secured into the grass as pew markers. Hand blown glass vases full of green peas topped with flowers offered a colorful and wind resistant design element.
Golden mums and olive greenery make up the wedding party flowers. The little girls carried posies that complimented their fab floral crowns. The ring bearer carried a miniature bird’s nest full of moss.
The bride, owner of Oscar and Emma Designs designed all of the paper pieces. Wood paper liners encased the letterpressed ceremony programs.
Lowcountry Lemonade served with drink flags embellished with button mums in the color palette.
Dinner seating cards designed by Oscar and Emma had a precious copper leaf for each guest. We created a tree for the cards to hang from, creating a focal point for decor.
Moss green crushed velvet linens made the brightly hued florals and menus really pop but also allowed for the candles to create a warmth later into the evening.
Roasted pumpkin soup was served in hollowed mini pumpkins.
The cake by Jim Smeal featured all of the designs found on the wedding papers.
The couple, from Ohio, had to have a Grater’s ice cream station, couldn’t be a more perfect accompaniment to the cake.
The guest welcome favors served in a fall orchard basket featured all gourmet treats from their hometown.
Oscar and Emma designed tags topped off the caramel popcorn favors guests received at the end of the evening.

The cozy after dinner lounge flanked by the espresso leather furniture and seagrass carpeting made the perfect spot to curl up with some bourbon and enjoy the festivities.
