White Wedding

You may have recently seen our Coastal white wedding on Carats and Cake. Erin and Ryan married on Sea Island this fall. And, a special guest may have made an appearance. We loved working with Liz Banfield again for the photography.

Lettered Olive went with simple luxury for the invitation design. While, the save the dates reveal a hint of the design to come. We do “party packs” for our clients. Once the formal invitations go out, guests receive invitations for other weekend events, perfectly coordinated in a lovely package. Then, of course, guests receive a welcome gift. This includes a booklet of important event information, transportation schedule, and local suggestions.

Here, one of our new signatures through Lettered Olive. Our packing tags are for guests when unpacking to attach to each weekend party outfit.

For this wedding color palette of creamy whites, fresh greens, and natural elements, bridesmaids dress in whites of varying styles. Sweet and simple cream rose nosegays are the perfect compliment.

Of course, a classic black tuxedo is the perfect compliment to the white palette.

The ceremony takes place on the front lawn of the historic Christ Church Frederica on St. Simon’s Island. It’s already a picturesque scene, but that day had so many people stopping by taking photos while we were setting up.

For such a fun couple, a fun departure from the ceremony couldn’t be more perfect. So, with the top down, our couple arrives from the church to their reception.

There are so many spots on Seal Island that make for beautiful photos. We love this lawn overlooking the ocean, it’s perfect for setting up seating sets, or other retreats from the party for guests.

Guests entered the grand foyer to a full service bar, and the cake on display.

And, afterwards, throughout the clubhouse, stations of gorgeous food displays are set. We always like to do a little something different for signage or displays. So, here we had a calligrapher write the menu item on the vases.

Also, one of our huge bars flanks the edge of the patio overlooking the ocean for guests to gather and mingle. At this point, the tent is still sealed off so that guests can have a big reveal, when it’s time for dancing.

Guests make their way into an ethereal white fabric draped tent. Anchored with seagrass carpeting, lighting and furniture. Florals featured huge tropical installations, and potted orchids (a staple in the bride’s family home).

For the lighting installation over the dance floor, orchid streamers are draped throughout.

Nothing makes us happier that knowing our clients are having fun. And, it’s clear to see here by our bride crowd surfing they are having the most fun!

One of the best ways we have found to get guests out to participate in the send of, is by having some of the band lead them out… Horns are a great way to end the evening on a high note!
