One of our favorite Southern venues is Sea Island, GA… it’s full of rich history, classic architecture, and fantastic service! And not to be overshadowed by weddings, sometimes the wedding welcome parties can be just as fun… The couple is usually more relaxed and are seeing many guests for the first time in a while. We are sharing this perfectly pleasant little party at Frederica Golf Club, before a wedding we can’t wait to share with you soon… All photos by Corbin Gurkin.
The venue has the most darling vintage boats that can be taken out for slow ride around the water… And the position on the bluff was prime real estate for the lounge seating.
Since the wedding featured shades of pink and coral, we wanted to give a little nod to that with the flowers this evening. We love how they made for a cheery pop of color agains the navy awning stripes. Custom cocktail napkins and koozies by Lettered Olive accented the bar.
Sweet seating viognettes offered guests a place to gather and with a prime view of the waterfront scenery.
We built our escort card table using tailored boxes with fresh rye grass elements and anchored by a large and lovely citrus sherbert colored arrangement. Even though the rehearsal party is traditionally hosted by the grooms family, it’s still a wedding celebration, so flowers have their place!
Guests enjoyed a traditional southern supper (complete with help yourself biscuits), and toasting the couple into the late evening!
