In April Amy had the distinct pleasure of providing event decor for two weddings on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. Though the same weekend, and in the same location, each wedding had its own distinct, beautiful feel.
The first wedding of the weekend a classically elegant affair. Brighan and Richard chose St. Gregory the Great Church for their ceremony and the Nicklaus clubhouse at the beautiful Colleton River Plantation, which boasts a breath taking view of both the Nicklaus golf course and the Colleton river.
The church and the reception were decorated with lavish arrangements of blue hydrangea, peonies, ranuculus, and phalaenopsis orchids. Height (and intrigue) were added to the arrangements with Bells of Ireland and Kiwi vine.
Kiwi was also featured in the bridesmaids’ bouquets while the bride’s bouquet, a gorgeous mass of peonies and hydrangea, was wrapped in white satin adorned with a something-blue button.
Moss containers, as well as silver mercury glass votive holders and vases, added to the graceful victorian garden atmosphere of Brighan and Richard’s reception.
The second wedding of the weekend was a more casual beach wedding for Samantha and Tyler. The beach offered the perfect background for some bold color which Samantha used beautifully, pairing a crisp apple green with a very striking ocean sky blue. The boldness of the color was offset by the softness of the peonies, cymbidium orchids, and freesia used for the bouquets, as well as the hydrangea used in various aspects of the ceremony and reception. Samantha and Tyler’s unique but sophisticated taste is seen once again in the use of fiddle head ferns in the bridesmaids bouquets and the guys’ boutonnieres.
The ceremony site was denoted by a bamboo chuppah draped in billowing white fabric, and a highlight of the reception was the coordinating wish tree and seating chart tree.
