Modern Nautical Kiawah Island Resort Wedding

There’s something for everyone in this gem from Virgil Bunao. Greens for days for the golf-lovers, soft beaches and sweeping views of Kiawah Island, nautical touches atop the linens from BBJ, modern chevron detailing, a gatsby-esque cake, classic bits throughout and a rad dance party courtesy of East Coast Entertainment. All together, it works so beautifully and it comes as no surprise with Luke Wilson behind the planning. See the film from Life Stage Films and hit up the gallery for even more!

From Virgil Bunao Photography… Amy and Brian sought out South Carolina as their wedding destination and it was a no-brainer when they decided to select The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island as their backdrop. The views are amazing, the sea breeze is an added bonus, and feeling like you’re in total seclusion while you’re reciting your wedding vows in front of your loved ones is priceless. To pay homage to the beautiful surroundings, Amy and Brian chose to go with a fun, nautical theme of navy and fuchsia pink; with a soft white mix of hydrangea-and-rose centerpieces that balanced out the color choices. They carried this palette to their wedding party as the gentlemen looked dapper in blue and the ladies looked stunning in pink.

Classic-Chic Dallas Wedding

When you pair a restored industrial building like the Hickory Street Annex with gilded detailing, touches of green and loads of ivory blooms, it’s sure to be a classic, yet chic wedding in the making. And it sooo works. Not to mention, the backdrop makes for some seriously pretty bridal portraits of the stunning Bride, who was glowing thanks to Elan Makeup Studio! It’s a cozy, candlelit kind of gallery from Chapa Images that you won’t want to miss.

From the beautiful Bride… When my husband & I searched for the venue to get married at, we ran across a “hidden gem” that was right outside of downtown Dallas called Hickory Street Annex. Talk about amazing… an old 1900’s oil distribution center that was restored with its original character—beautiful, exposed brick & beams, nearly 360 degree view of windows, & my favorite– the old, but WORKING elevator shaft. This venue couldn’t have been more perfect for us- a place large enough to hold a ceremony AND reception while providing a classy/ chic/ industrial look, and a shuttle service to/from the hotel. The downstairs was used for the bridal suite and “Cocktail Hour”, while the upstairs was used for the ceremony & reception.

The day-of, I had a group of loving and devoted family and friends help me set up my dream wedding- including a vast amount of Pinterest- inspired ideas. From a “Cookie Bar” to a “Cigar Bar,” all personally made decisions on each little detail. We had old window panes to list our Seating Chart, corks to hold each name’s place card, customized Etsy koozies, “dancing shoes” (Old Navy flip flops) for dancing at the reception, and large (empty) wine barrels to use as cocktail tables/ sign holders. Every corner you turned, there were mini mason jars that had little votive candles inside, mason jars topped with hydrangeas and filled with photos & oil to make it look like “old photographs,” and even an old wooden door just to add a little rustic/chic look. We also had a photo booth for some fun reception memories!

The night finished with “send-off” sparklers (which also made for some awesome photos), and a “carriage ride” (a surprise from my parents) just like Cinderella! The whole wedding day/ night was perfect, but what I loved the most was being with my husband to see all the DIY/ personally-made touches/decorations/decisions all come together!

From AmorologyShortly after Scott Lembke proposed to his darling bride Mia Deterding, their friends quickly coined them “The Lem-dingers” and their new mash up name seemed to be ringing with inspiration. We set out to create a “Lemdinger” of a day for our sweet duo with antiquated bells and rustic romantic touches among a gorgeous country setting.

Mia and Scott were wed under a birch, bloom and bell structure that we created in collaboration with Twigg Botanicals while guests waved ribbon wands of mini bells at the conclusion of their ceremony to celebrate.

Following cocktail hour and lawn games, the dinner bell was wrung and invited guests to wash up at our water basin station and escort card display where each person was given their own tea towel and table assignment. Table names perched in cut birch logs were named after various flowers with the description of their meaning such as Camellia, which in the language of flowers means “longing for you” and the California Poppy which means “Sweet Dreams” or the Lily of the Valley that means “you complete me”.

Guests were favored with homemade strawberry jam by our bride with tied tags that read “the more the berrier”. In exchange, guests left hand-written letters and memories to Mia and Scott that they tucked into old wood mail slots. After dinner, the party took to the dance floor, while some cuddled by the fire in warm handmade quilts by the bride. It was an evening as comfortable and warm as the two of them, filled with the kindest of people and a love that we know will last a lifetime!
