From Stunning & Brilliant Events Matt and Kristin had a beautiful, Kentucky Derby-themed wedding in Georgetown, South Carolina. Though Kristin and Matt are not natives of South Carolina, Matt used to spend his summers growing up there. Because of this, they both wanted the beach/southern/preppy/country club vibe to be felt in their wedding. Also, the date of the wedding was May 5, the day of the Kentucky Derby, so they wanted to incorporate that theme in their wedding as well. All of the intricate details, careful planning, and excellent vendors resulted in a gorgeous and unforgettable wedding. They had a flawless, sunny, outdoor ceremony, followed by a fun cocktail hour and a pretty, outdoor reception equipped with the most excellent selection of food and hours of dancing! Her dress was so stylish and memorable, along with the bridesmaids’ dresses. The groomsmen looked adorable as well in their coral/red bow ties. The flowers and candles everywhere gave it a romantic feel, and the candy table was the perfect touch at the beach side dancing area. Every detail, from the mason jar flower vases to the flip flop basket at the dance floor, made this wedding that much more unique and special.
