From the Bride...One of the most challenging aspects of our wedding was finding a location that would allow the majority of our friends and family attend. We had guests coming from 10 different states including everywhere California to New York. After dating for about a year our first vacation as a couple was a trip along the beautiful beaches of South Carolina making it seem like the logically first choice for our wedding celebration. Since it was a destination wedding we were able to have a small intimate celebration with 8o guests.
We always wanted a wedding were our guests could kick off their shoes! We are a pretty laid back couple and wanted our wedding to be a reflection of just that. The ceremony was located on the beach at the Westin Resort and Spa in Hilton Head Island, SC. We loved the location because it enabled our guest to leave the ceremony to be greeted with a beverage on the deck that overlooked the ocean during the cocktail hour.
We were on a budget however I still wanted our wedding to be classic, romantic and vintage feel. One of the ways I was able to save some money was making many of the decorations on my own. The chair decorations were starfish with ribbons that blew in the wind. What made them special for us were that they were the same starfish that we bought on our first vacation in Hilton Head. Decorations for the cocktail hour were simple pink jars with pearl accents along with mason jars wrapped in jute with simple floral stems.
The color scheme for the wedding could be best found in the choices for the reception. We selected baroque patterned linen in rose and cream and paired it with pearl, lace, and gold accents. For an additional treat we also had a candy bar so guests could bring back a late night snack after the celebration. For our wedding I found the beauty with the small details that made it feel like a perfect reflection of the two of us.
The dress was a perfect reflection of the feel I wanted for our wedding. It combined something modern along with vintage. All the jewelry including the broach that I added to my dress was from the 1950's and was purchased from different antique fairs that we visited during our engagement. Along with the amazing jewelry my absolute favorite accessory was my Kate Spade shoes that added an additional sparkle. Florals were delicate, eloquent and pretty. They included some of my favorite flowers such as garden roses and hydrangeas and were wrapped in satin covered with lace with accents of pearl.
