It’s Friday morning, the sun is shining and we have this beautiful Hilton Head wedding courtesy of the amazing Scobey Photography to take us right into the weekend. It doesn’t get much better than this, if you ask me. From those dreamy bridesmaid dresses (I am in love with that bright blue) to the pavilion reception overlooking the beach (swoon) and the stunning floral design by Harvey Designs, this wedding is beyond lovely. And just wait until you see the bride’s “something borrowed.” (Hint: Her shoes.) They are so very, very gorgeous. Yes, it’s most definitely a good day here at Style Me Pretty Destination Weddings. And it gets even better in the gallery!
From the Bride… You know that feeling when you go to the beach and you start to smell the salt water and you can’t help but smile? We wanted that vibe for our whole wedding. We started the festivities Friday evening at The Wreck of the Salty Dog at South Beach Marina in Sea Pines. We had shrimp sliders, margaritas, and a sunset over the water to set the tone. Early Saturday Amy came by with our gorgeous bouquets—mine was a hand tied bouquet of white peonies, white dahlias, green cymbidium orchids and white hydrangeas. The bridesmaid’s bouquets had all of the same except the white hydrangeas.
Our ceremony began at 2 pm and I wore a gown by Priscilla of Boston and my something borrowed were the Christian Louboutin shoes that my cousin wore in her wedding. My bridesmaids also wore Priscilla of Boston dresses; strapless in a bright blue, Seine, fitted under the bust and a ruffle down one side. Sam and his groomsmen wore Joseph A Banks gray suits and Sam wore Cole Haan shoes. Sam’s Uncle Ike performed the ceremony along with Deacon John of Holy Family. Our venue was a large pavilion that overlooked the beach and a pond; it was the largest venue we could find on the beach as we had 160 guests travel for our destination wedding. The gorgeous and delicious wedding cake was alternating layers of chocolate chip cake and marble cake. It was made in Maryland by our very close friend, Lynne Lichtig, who then drove the cake to South Carolina and assembled it there!
