Claire + Daniel

Claire and Daniel’s wedding weekend in Sea Island, Georgia was one for the books! After popping the question in Sea Island over the holidays, it was only natural that they would come back six months later to get married in their special spot! After a beautiful welcome party and rehearsal dinner at the Sea Island Beach Club, Claire and Daniel chose Saint Simons Presbyterian Church for the ceremony and Ocean Forest Golf Club for their elegant, beach style reception. The Church was elegantly decorated with a garland over the sanctuary door, white orchids lined down the aisle, and two beautiful arrangements in green and white hues at the front of the church. After saying their “I Do’s” the newlyweds, along with their guests, traveled to Ocean Forest for their gorgeous reception! Like the church, the Club was decorated with florals in green and white, but with pops of blue in the linens and pillows as an accent to the ocean right outside. Just steps outside the white tent is Ocean Forest’s gorgeous lawn, complete with a perfect view of the ocean. The reception area was truly beautiful and created such an elegant area for guests to dine and dance. One of our favorite focal areas of the tent was the incredible halo of calla lilies right over the dance floor–such a show stopping item that tied in perfectly with the venue! After first dances, guests dined on an array of amazing food–an important detail to the newlyweds as Daniel is an amazing chef. The beach humidity didn’t take away from how pretty the Bride’s cake was–decorated perfectly with shells on the side and a Herend shell up top. The Groom’s cake was an homage to Daniel, who opted for a cooking themed cake designed by the nearby Cloister Hotel. East Coast Entertainment’s “The Black and Blue Experience” made the party an unforgettable experience and kept guests on their feet throughout the evening! After Claire and Daniel shared a final dance, the newlyweds hopped into a waiting car and exited the reception down a line of fireworks–the perfect ending to the best day! Congrats, Claire and Daniel!
