The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island
October 1, 2011
A second chance at love…..I think we all love those kind of stories….Jessi and I were thrilled to be a part of one last month.
Nancy and Ken were married at St. Andrews Church on Ashley River Road in an intimate ceremony with just immediate family;
and then celebrated with all their family and friends at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island.
Nancy had lost her first husband of many years a couple years ago and had prayed she would find someone to share the rest of her life with.
Well her prayers were answered when she met Ken- a sweet guy with a great sense of humor.
It was our pleasure to get to know them both and be a part of such a special day in their lives.
Nancy chose a color palette of copper and dusty purple- our florist Judy Johnston created show stopping florals to coordinate
with mixed arrangements of copper flowers and submerged copper orchids.
The couple chose a food station/tapas style reception and the Atlantic Room housed a shrimp & grits station as well as a
beef tenderloin carving station with potatoes au gratin and roasted fall vegetables.
The centerpiece for the room was the Engaging Events glass tower with sugar rimmed champagne glasses garnished with a fresh blueberry and a wonderful array of cheeses and fruits.
At the far end of the room Engaging Events and the Ocean Course created a beautiful delectable display of petite desserts in lieu of a wedding cake.
Creme Brulee, Pecan Tarts, Key Lime Tarts, Chocolate Truffles were just some of the wonderful offerings.
We chose beautiful textured copper linens throughout the reception with accents of the dusty purple twist linens.
Outside on the porch guests enjoyed a grilled fish and risotto station, a beautiful mahogany bar and a dance tent accented with Engaging Events
crystal chandeliers, dusty purple fabric draping accents, sofa seating with dusty purple throw pillows and Engaging Events
lantern clusters (these brown lanterns are new to our inventory this fall season:))
It was a great pleasure for the Ocean Course to host this wedding reception as well- as the couple spent much of their courtship on dates at the clubhouse restaurant.
The staff of the Ocean Course and Engaging Events is so happy for these two lovebirds and wish them many happy years to come…
Many thanks to the Ocean Course for the fabulous setting and food, Judy Johnston for the gorgeous florals, and King Street Studios for some of these detail shots.
