Blog › Real Wedding | Tropical Fall Destination Wedding at Sea Pines Resort
January 25, 2022 //Real Weddings
Beth and Doug live in the Washington D.C. area but wanted a destination affair that their guests would love! The two often travel to Hilton Head for vacations, and to spend time with family and friends, so it was the obvious choice for the destination wedding. They both love the southern charm and endless beaches.
When picking a venue, they wanted a resort where guests could stay on-site and they could keep all the events on a single property. Sea Pines Resort was a perfect choice! This luxury venue provides breathtaking views and indoor and outdoor spaces for your reception.
Their original wedding date was October 2020, but they rescheduled for one year later due to Covid. It was wonderful to finally be able to celebrate with them and create these designs we had been planning for so long!
Tropical Jewel Tones And Fall Colors
Beth loves jewel tones and tropical leaves but wanted it to still be within the theme of Fall. We love to create unique designs and combine different elements into one beautiful event. Bright, bold flowers and tropical leaves were an unexpectedly perfect pairing at this celebration. The bridesmaids wore green satin gowns, making red and orange really pop.
The couple picked The Liberty Oak for their ceremony, where a centuries-old moss-draped oak provided the perfect backdrop. Floral installations enhanced the gorgeous space and added the touch of bold jewel tones that Beth loves.
Reception at Sea Pines Resort
Everything was scheduled to be held outdoors on the lawn and patio, but the weather had different plans. Looming storm clouds forced the reception to be moved indoors. We worked side by side with the amazing team at Sea Pines Resort to execute a completely new floor plan and space, and everything turned out perfectly. When planning your wedding, you want a team of professionals who know how to handle anything – including moving your reception indoors when it rains!
We incorporated a variety of materials—including patterned linens, metal, tropical leaves, and glass—into their décor. The long al-fresco-style tables were draped with greenery, and dozens of pillar candles added a soft glow. Even after pushing their wedding back, the couple was so happy to be together with everyone they love and celebrate! While we are based in Savannah, we work all over the Low Country, from Hilton Head to Sea Island, and beyond. We look forward to hearing from you!
