Blog › Real Wedding | Natural and Coastal Wedding at Sea Pines Resort
November 23, 2021 //Real Weddings
Spring weddings in the Low Country are some of our favorites to design. Cade and Emily wanted a wedding that showed off the beautiful Spring in Hilton Head, with thoughtfully designed details. Emily is an Earth scientist, so it was important to keep the design earthy and natural. Her favorite flower is the Panda Anemone, one of the first flowers to bloom in the Spring, so it was the perfect starting point in her wedding design!
We took the black and white colors of the anemone and added soft blues and a buttercup yellow for a touch of color. When selecting their flowers, we added lots of different textures and unique shapes. Peonies, delphinium, scabiosa, and seasonal blooms created a playful design that fitted with this luxurious coastal wedding. The design carried touches of blue throughout the wedding. The bridesmaids wore blue satin gowns, with hand-wrapped bouquets in shades of cream, yellow and cornflower blue.
Outdoor Wedding at Sea Pines Resort
The couple chose Sea Pines for their wedding, which is a coastal resort on Hilton Head. This venue combines Low Country charm with a sophisticated atmosphere. They decided to have their ceremony at the Liberty Oak, which is a staple of Sea Pines. The majestic limbs of this centuries-old moss-draped Oak create a stunning backdrop for handwritten vows.
As we designed the reception, which took place lawn under a large tent, we focused on creating an organic design. Large loquat trees were placed at the base of each tent pole to make the room feel much more natural. The mix of round and rectangle tables created interest, and they were covered in gray textured linen. The tables had candles and floral centerpieces that continued the neutral color palette, with some touches of golden yellow for a little bit of color. We used a variety of vintage trophy goblets to keep the pieces low and allow for conversation between guests at each table.
We added Spanish moss to the oversized chandeliers at the last minute, and it tied everything together! Our favorite installations are simple yet make a statement. All of the greenery we added throughout really made the reception feel like a garden and made this couple’s vision come to life! We are so thankful we got to design this event for Cade and Emily!
