Real Wedding Mackenzie and Ted

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, August 09, 2017

What an amazing wedding weekend Mackenzie and Ted created! Their guests were truly in for a treat throughout the entire weekend of events. Guests arrived at the Inn at Harbour Town and immediately were greeted by a glass of champagne, Welcome Sign designed by Emily McCarthy and treats available in the lobby. Mackenzie and Ted kicked off their wedding weekend by having a tented welcome reception on the Inn terrace offering warm pretzels, bourbon and champagne infused marshmallows for s'mores, fresh popped popcorn by Palmetto Kettle Corn and many more treats! Yum!

The ceremony took place on the 18th Lawn of Harbour Town Golf links adjacent to the lighthouse, the Groom's favorite landmark! A Floral Affair created a ceremony focal that consisted of two floral arrangements filled with oyster shells to tie in the beautiful backdrop of the Calibogue sound. Mackenzie's adorable nieces and nephew's fashionably entered the ceremony by being pulled down the aisle in a handcrafted wooden boat. How cute are they?! The angelic sound of Voices of El Shaddai choir rang in guests ears as the newlyweds walked down the aisle. 

Guests followed the powerful sound of the choir through the Harbour and to the Clubhouse for cocktail hour on the Veranda. Sea Pines delicious hors d'oeuvre were passed and martinis were flowing through a lighthouse ice luge. Mackenzie and Ted had to put up with a little bit of rain during cocktail hour to get a rainbow and look how stunning the photo turned out!

One thing we found extra touching about the day is how Mackenzie and Ted tied in their strong family bond throughout the day. All of their Bridal Party consisted of family members, including Mackenzie's Matron of Honor, her sweet Mother. Mrs. Grider gave the best MOH speech ever. She found a book she wrote to Mackenzie when she was younger titled "50 Things I Must Tell My Daughter" and read some inserts aloud. Including "Make sure you marry someone tall, dark, and handsome!" And Mackenzie sure did! Mrs. Grider finished her speech by having Sea Pines butler passed Bloody Mary's, Mackenzie's fave!

Sol fusion had guests dancing all night on a custom navy and gold dance floor made by Party Tables. At the end of the night guests showered Mackenzie and Ted with confetti as they exited. But... the night was not quite over! Guests entered the Inn where the After Party took place. As guests went to lay their head on their pillows they had one more treat waiting for them. A "Just Married" cookie with a hand written note from Mackenzie and Ted. What a sweet ending to a wonderful evening!
