After three postponements due to the pandemic, it was an absolute joy to finally celebrate Kelley + Watts Sea Island wedding. The couple welcomed family and friends to their destination wedding in Georgia with a weekend of wedding activities. The wedding weekend began with a relaxed wedding welcome party with a tropical atmosphere and ended with the joy of Kelley + and Watts celebrating their marriage with out-of-town guests.
Classic White Floral Design
Our bride, Kelley, had a vision of all-white florals with a dash of tropical elements on her Sea Island wedding day. So, the Gray Harper team created a floral design with lush white blooms and lots of greenery. For the bridal party, we blended ferns and orchids with all white flowers to create green and white wedding bouquets. The bridesmaids and bridal bouquets were filled with texture-rich white blooms like Stock flowers, Hellebore, Phalaenopsis Orchids and Anthurium. While the groom’s and groomsmen’s boutonnieres were made with white mini Cymbidium Orchids.
Tropical Floral Details At Sea Island Wedding
Kellie Ryan Designs did a wonderful job at designing the reception space to highlight the bride and groom’s all-white and tropical floral vision. Centrepieces and floral arrangements included a variety of textured white blooms like anthuriums, canterbury bells, orchid stems, and orchid plants. Palm leaves and ferns were used to bring the tropical elements of the design to life.
Guest tables were draped with crisp white linens and topped with greenery runners, white blooms, french gray-coloured pillar candles, and votives. The chandeliers were draped with lush greenery, which provided an element of depth to the reception space.
One of the most memorable features of this Sea Island wedding reception was the two breathtaking floral arrangements that wrapped the pillars of the entrance. These installations welcomed guests as they entered the space and were the perfect pieces to set the tone for the evening.
As florists, we love to create unique and stunning personalized designs for each of our couples! When designing the florals for Kelley + Watts Sea Island wedding, we wanted to bring the bride’s all-white floral and tropical vision to life in every floral element possible. Each detail was thoughtfully chosen and incorporated into the design, from the moment guests arrived and saw the statement floral installation to the bridesmaids all white tropical-inspired bouquets. If you are dreaming of a destination wedding in Georgia, we would love to work with you! We love bringing our couple’s unique visions to life through the beauty of flowers!

This past October we had the pleasure of working with Amir and Bess for their destination wedding at the King and Prince Resort on Saint Simons Island. The couple had a unique vision for their wedding day and wanted a fusion of 1920’s glam with some tropical Island accents. Both Bess and her mother were very knowledgeable about specific floral types and worked with our team to select their favorite blooms which we incorporated into the design.
As the Calla Lily is an important flower to Bess we went with a simple and classic bridal bouquet with all white Calla Lilies. Bess tied a vintage Hermes scarf around the stems of her bouquet, as a way to incorporate a family heirloom.
Tropical Glam Design
To continue with this all-white classic floral design, white bouquets and boutonnieres were created for each member of the wedding party. For the bridesmaid’s bouquets, we designed each with a single flower type of different white blooms. We loved this idea because it emphasized how each bridesmaid is part of the group but also different. We did the same thing with the groomsmen boutonnieres, designing each with a different white focal bloom. This was a beautiful way to honor the unique and special relationships Amir and Bess have with their wedding party members.
For the ceremony, lush white floral arrangements with tropical accents were elevated on acrylic stands as to not take away from the focal blooms. Bundles of tropical greenery and simple white florals were incorporated throughout the ceremony space and were the perfect selection for this destination wedding on Saint Simons Island.
At the reception, the stunning five-tiered wedding cake was definitely the showstopper of the evening. Designed with fresh white Calla Lillies and petite fern leaves this wedding cake was the epitome of tropical glam. The reception space at this destination wedding on Saint Simons Island included tall centerpieces with flamboyant tropical foliage, along with simple and subtle bud vases for small white floral blooms.
With a number of different types of blooms and greenery included in the design, there were a number of dynamic interests and elements within each arrangement. We love how we were able to bring Bess’s vision of a 1920’s glam design with tropical accents to life with only the simple green foliage and white blooms.
