This wedding has us all getting ready for beach season! This couple married overlooking the beach on Seabrook Island, where the bride’s family has a home. You could see the love between them, and having fun was their top priority. Good thing everyone kept their cool when a blackout happened that day causing the entire island to loose power- which means A.C. (at the end of July in Charleston no less). Adrienne Page provides the lovely images.
Wanting something different, when we found the fabric we were going to use throughout the wedding decor, we decided to have clutches made for the bridesmaids to carry as well.
The flower girls wore crowns made with the same summer flowers, and were gifted Charleston Sweetgrass baskets.
Bridesmaids wore mossy green linen shift dresses by JCrew, and carried airy summer bouquets fit and hearty enough for a seaside ceremony.
The flowers were a mix of summer blooms like zinnias, dahlias, lisianthus, and maidenhair fern.
The guests dined at stations with Lowcountry and Mexican influences. When doing stations, I like when the dishes pre composed and already plated, so that guests can easily grab a dish and eat it while maybe having to stand or with a drink in hand. Desserts accompanying the cake were Caramel Flan, and mini Churros in Chocolate.
Favors were little peach baskets filled with local South Carolina peaches.
Lettered Olive designed a logo that was used throughout the wedding printing that included die cut shapes and signage mimicking the logo. A green “burlap” pattern was also created to bring in the wedding palette and materials.
A lounge was created on the porch for guests to enjoy the beach views. Sea elements were a small detail- coral votives and the centerpiece stems were covered by mixed shells resting in the vases.
The wedding cake by Jim Smeal featured burlap rings with green growing vines…
For the couple who were moving to Texas after the wedding, we surprised them with Texas state flags that guests waved as the couple departed by golf cart.
