Blog › A Daufuskie Island Wedding at Haig Point
January 25, 2023 //Real Weddings
Kailin and Jeffery approached the Gray Harper team for help with designing their destination wedding in South Carolina, alongside planner + designer Pejy Kash. The couple was planning a Daufuskie Island wedding at the stunning Haig Point. For their Haig Point wedding, we assisted Kailin and Jeffery with their floral design, as well as sourced and supplied all rentals for their celebration.
Fall Floral Design
The Gray Harper team worked alongside Pejy Kash from Pejy Kash Events to create a natural, fall-infused design. Kailin, the bride, put total trust in us to create something beautiful that she would love, and we did just that!
For the ceremony, we chose to stick with natural florals that fit into the surrounding landscape. Since the ceremony at this Daufuskie Island wedding took place on the beach, we opted for light and airy florals with greenery and dried grasses. We filled the ceremony arrangments and backdrop with warm-toned blooms and grasses, which were complimented by the wood chairs and surrounding sand on the beach. It was the perfect neutral and natural design for this setting.
The couple gave us the creative freedom to create a floral design focused on fall tones for their wedding reception at Haig Point. It was such a breath of fresh air to be able to let our creative juices flow and create a one-of-a-kind fall floral design for this couple. One of our favorite wedding reception features was the floral installation on the ballroom ceiling and chandelier. For this, we used lots of textured florals in deep burgundy and warm copper tones. We then draped lush greenery, including spanish moss, over the chandelier to create a cascading effect. The result was absolutely stunning!
Logistics of a Daufuskie Island Wedding
Daufuskie Island is an island between Savannah and Hilton Head Island. This unique southern region is beautiful for a destination wedding; however, there are lots of logistics to consider when planning a Haig Point wedding.
As the island is only accessible by boat, everything sourced and supplied for the wedding must be brought on a barge or the island’s ferry system. In the days leading up to the wedding, we loaded a truck with the rentals we sourced and supplied. That truck then had to be brought over to the island on a barge. Finally, in the early morning hours on the wedding day, our team loaded Kailin and Jefferies florals onto a ferry to arrive at Haig Point. Along with the additional logistics of getting the items onto the island comes the additional cost of staffing, transportation, and time. Even though there are more details to consider when planning a Daufuskie Island wedding, the results will far exceed expectations!
Our team had an absolute blast pushing the creative boundaries for this fall floral design. Thank you, Kailin and Jeffery, for trusting us with your design and helping to bring your Daufuskie Island wedding to fruition.
