A Wedding Weekend

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Many of our Spencer Special Events weddings are destination ones. Our couples grew up vacationing here on Hilton Head Island, or their parents have a second home here, or it's an area they've always wanted to visit! As a result, most of the guests are from out of town so when we are planning and designing, we plan a whole weekend full of fun.

The welcome party is a trend we have been seeing over the last couple of years. Rehearsal dinners are still very popular but are growing more intimate, and are occurring more and more on Thursdays. This leaves room on Friday night for a party for all the out of town guests! A bit more relaxed than the wedding reception, the decor, music, and food are toned down but certainly set the stage for the weekend.

One of our dearest couples, Kara and Justin, were married this May. The weekend started on Thursday with a wedding rehearsal at the church and then intimate dinner on the veranda at The Dye Clubhouse at Colleton River Plantation. A Floral Affair carefully hung lanterns above the long table, overlooking the majestic river and golf course, and guests dined on Chef Robert Wysong's fabulous cuisine. Hand cut palm fronds served as place mats and beautifully hand lettered place cards were tied to silver palm tree bottle openers. Two fun details we just loved and carried the theme throughout the weekend.

On Friday, Spencer Special Events designed and planned a welcome party at The Westin Oceanfront Hotel. All out of town guests enjoyed delicious food, music, and a beautiful beach front view.

On Wedding Day,  Kara and Justin were married in a beautiful ceremony at Providence Presbyterian Church and the reception was held at The Colleton River Plantation's Nicklaus Clubhouse. We can't share all the beautiful details yet, (stay tuned!) but here's a sneak peak of the gorgeous couple by Donna Von Bruening Photographers.

When planning your destination wedding, it's important to consider the whole weekend of events. Spencer Special Events also coordinates golf outings (and even family tournaments!), brunches, yoga on the beach, spa appointments, and bridal teas and luncheons. We can help set up beach games, lounging by the pool, and so much more.

How many events you choose to have is up to you -- and Spencer Special Events is here to help you along the way!
