From Morgan Gallo Events... This March, Sonia and Matthew married in Hilton Head, South Carolina, in a beautiful ceremony at Port Royal amongst friends and family. The most adorable first look pictures took place in a light drizzle, but the clouds soon cleared and made way for the sun just in time for the ceremony. The feel for the wedding that Sonia and Matthew were going for was romantic and rustic. We were able to bring that look to life with the twig arbor by adding a few flowers, mason jars hung with twine filled with large hydrangea blooms, and by keeping the colors on the pale side of pinks, ivories and greens. LA LA LA LOVE! A few favorite details: the personalized hanger for Sonia's dress, the wine box ceremony they chose to do instead of a unity candle, the adorable bow ties for the puppies and the precious flower girl! There are so many fun details to mention. From the moss-covered letters that adorned the doors to the reception room, the cute fingerprint guestbook, the window pane with burlap pieces to let guests know where their seats where, the pear place cards with beautiful calligraphy, and the elaborate dessert table that was the center of attention. If you look closely, you can see that the toppers to each cupcake were stamped with the couple's monogram. The guests were given burlap covered saplings to plant in honor of Sonia and Matthew. We loved seeing guests use the photo booth props — talk about some great laughs! The best part was that these two were on the dance floor all night long — not to mention the bride did a wardrobe change just for the occasion! LOVE HER tea length dress and it really showed off those amazing shoes.  I always tell my couples, "If you are dancing, then your guests will follow the lead,"  and to say that their guests had some amazing moves would be an understatement! To end the night, guests lined up with sparklers to send the happy couple on their way.
