Happy Heritage and Easter Y'All

Spencer Special Events - Friday, April 18, 2014

Spring has sprung in the Lowcountry and what a week for Spencer Special Events and Hilton Head Island! The annual RBC Heritage Golf Tournament is happening now. It's one of our favorite events of the year and site of many of Spencer Special Events wonderful weddings throughout the years. The 18th lawn of the Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Resort is such a spectacular venue for a wedding and obviously a great game of golf! Be sure to check us out on television this weekend.

It's also Easter weekend and we are inspired by the ever-so-talented Martha Stewart and this gorgeous photography by Martha Stewart.com, to plan a gorgeous Sunday brunch with our family. Beautiful moss-draped eggs for your tablescape and the most perfect deviled eggs, we are sure ours will turn out just like these! A girl can dream, right?

To all our wonderful couples, families, friends and talented vendor friends, we wish you a Happy Heritage and Happy Easter!

Christin and Rob

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Finally!  Spencer Special Events is beyond thrilled to share Christin and Rob's Haig Point Fall wedding with you today! This beauty was featured last week on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and as you will see from the photos below by Hopkins Studios, this wedding was pure style- just like the bride and groom! Yes, folks, this is one gorgeous couple and trust us, they are just as beautiful on the inside. We fell in love with them the minute we met them and enjoyed planning their wedding every step of the way not to mention the friendship we have gained.

Their celebration took place on Daufuskie Island, a remote island off the coast of South Carolina between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Georgia where no cars or trucks are permitted, an amazing private golf community. Residents and visitors get around in golf carts and the only access to the island is by ferry boat. It's charming light house is the perfect setting for a ceremony, and it's first class clubhouse is ideal for cocktails and a reception. Here's a look back at some of our favorite photos by Hopkins Studios! A big thanks to all of our vendor friends who helped make this wedding spectacular and Christin, Rob and their sweet families for being such a joy to work with.

Leslie and her staff at the Cottage (darling spot downtown Bluffton) make the most fabulous scones, breads, and pastries. A recent bride of ours included fresh baked baguettes from The Cottage and her own dipping oils handmade by the bride and groom!  We love including a cocktail like Charleston, South Carolina's famous Firefly Vodka. Heritage Shortbread cookies, Salty Dog playing cards, Lowcountry Luxe Candles, Savannah Bee Company Honey, and Palmetto Kettle Cornare also some of our favs. We always recommend including aspirin or Alka-Seltzer for those late night party-goers! Bottles of water or sparkling refresh your guests and personalized sunscreen and chap-stick are fun ways to keep your guests protected from our warm southern sun!

Inside your welcome bag, we'll also recommend you include "Where to Go" magazines and our favorite restaurant guide for guests who want to explore the area. And of course, we always recommend a custom welcome brochure. We work with the most talented designers to come up with a welcome guide detailing the events of your weekend. This helps organize your guests and let's them know when and where to be!

Hosting a destination wedding in the Lowcountry gives so many people the opportunity to visit this truly gorgeous area. Making sure your guests feel welcome and providing them with the right tools to enjoy the area is something we absolutely love to do! Spencer Special Events is happy to help you every step of the way from the design, shopping, assembly and delivery!
