30 Year Vow Renewal

Thea and Ron decided to renew their vows last September at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, and we were thrilled to be a part of it. There is something special about a vow renewal …. after many years of marriage still wanting to gather your closest family and friends to celebrate your love doesn’t happen every day. I wish everyone experienced this special moment in their lives because while everyone is excited at a wedding for the couple to begin their lives together….at a vow renewal there is history and everyone knows the trials and tribulations that life has thrown the couple and yet they still pause to cherish their love. There is no greater happiness or excitement than you see at an occasion such as this….

It isn’t hard to see why Thea and Ron chose the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island to host their renewal…the view is gorgeous and serene. As a couple they have often “escaped” life for the weekend at Kiawah and it brought them great joy to be able to share their special place with the people they love most.

 

The color palette of earth colors: taupe, green, cream and a touch of blush pink was just stunning and understated at the Ocean Course.

 

As always the chef and staff of the Ocean Course did not disappoint..great food, drink and fun was had by all!

  

Our many thanks to MCG for the gorgeous pictures and to Thea and Ron for allowing us to help you create such a special day for you and your family!

 

Vow Renewal

This fall we are thrilled to be planning another Vow Renewal!  After 30 years of marriage, the couple will be celebrating with a weekend of events on Kiawah Island.  The ceremony and party will both be held at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island.

Here’s a peek at there gorgeous invitations designed by Studio R and the art work was created by the bride’s daughter who is studying graphic design.  Together they created an amazing invitation!

This will be our second vow renewal at Kiawah Island, last summer we had a 20 year Vow Renewal at the Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah.  Not only is Kiawah Island an amazing place to have your wedding or host the PGA Golf Tournament, it’s also a fabulous place to have your Vow Renewal!

Louisa, Mother of the Bride

I truly cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work in making Lanier and Kyle’s wedding the outstanding success it was. It was so gratifying to see every detail come together so perfectly at the end. The few minor glitches went unnoticed by all thanks to your expertise. I can truly say that if I had tried to do this on my own, they would have had to put me away. I did not appreciate at the onset how many details have to be addressed in planning a wedding. As I told you, the one word we keep hearing to describe the event is “perfection” …all due to you!

Tristan, Mother of the Bride

One last Thank You to you and all your helpers for an absolutely wonderful wedding weekend for Anne and Steve! Everything about it- including the weather- was exactly what they (we all) wanted. We will all have many happy memories of beautiful flowers, fabulous food, happy guests and a glowing Bride & Groom to last a lifetime!

Nancy and Ken

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.
