An elegant beach wedding was the inspiration for Abby and Ben’s special day. Hayli took the lead on their wedding. She helped give design advice for their intimate details and made sure to coordinate with all their vendors their wedding wishes. Amy assisted Hayli on the day of their wedding, ensuring the day’s events ran smoothly, and that the bride and groom were taken care of.
Abby had her hair and makeup done by Silhouette on Site. Silhouette on Site gave Abby a natural glowing make-up look, and a slicked back hairstyle which looked elegant and effortless on the day.
Abby’s white and green palette was beautifully used in her flower arrangements by Pretty Petals. Orchids were the main attraction for Abby’s bouquet, which brought an elegant finish to Abby’s look.
Wild Dunes catered the day. Their menu was crafted to give the couple and their guests elegant southern dishes. From seafood to pulled pork, the food was a hit with their guests.
They had their ceremony overlooking the Isle of Palms beach, at the Rooftop of the Sweetgrass Inn. Vann, from Two Guys and a Wedding, was the officiant for their ceremony.
Charleston Virtuosi played during the ceremony and cocktail hour. The string trio played beautifully – playing both classical and popular instrumental music. They tailor a unique song list to suit the couple’s music taste.
The couple and their guests spent the rest of their evening dancing to Steel Toe Stilettos. The guests were given lei and glow sticks to help get the party started. The bride and groom were all smiles on the dance floor!
Pasha Belman and Surrender Films made sure to capture all the beautiful moments of the day. Abby and Ben ended the night with a photo session on the elevator!
