An Open Air Garden Affair

I don't think I can put into works how much I love Bray's Island. It is an exclusive venue for property owners and their families, however I love it so much that I would encourage you to try to convince a family member to move there. I know that is a long shot, but I had to suggest it because I just absolutely love it. Alex was lucky enough to have his grandmother live within Bray's Island so they were able to have their wedding reception on the side-lawn of the newly renovated Inn. Their ceremony was at church in nearby Beaufort.

This wedding is everything you want a Lowcountry fall wedding to be. An open air lawn draped in cafe lights and surrounded by pergola walkways covered in ivy was the served as the space for the reception. Don't forget the live oaks dripping in Spanish moss. The live oaks, which are such a lowcountry staple, were carried through the invitation suite with a hand-drawn oak by Alex's grandmother.

The colors for this wedding were a coastal navy accented with a fall like blush and bright burgundy. Floral linens and oyster filled vases accented the coastal fall event. Did I mention there are not 1 but 2 avenues of live oaks? One as you enter the community and another as you turn down the dirt road to the Inn.

The circular entry way of the whitewashed Inn was the perfect setting for cocktail hour. We added circular white bars, gold shelving, whitewashed chairs and tables covered in my forever favorite navy shelby linens by the wonderful Ceci Designs

Action stations were a customized, entertaining dinner for guests. After dinner we moved under the pergola and partied the night away!
