At Engaging Events, we don’t like to do anything halfway. If you know us and our team, you know that we love decor, design, and florals. So when we were offered a chance to be one of the featured wedding vendors at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Wedding Venue Showcase at Osprey Point Clubhouse on Kiawah Island… we went all out. Having been a Kiawah Island wedding planner for over a decade, (and not to toot our own horn, BUT) having planned the very first wedding to take place at the Ocean Course, we love working on Kiawah and we were so excited. We were also paired with some of our favorite Charleston wedding vendors to accomplish our task. The goal of this event was to inspire Charleston wedding and event planners to see the possibilities of hosting an event on Kiawah Island, and especially within the Kiawah Island Golf Resort venues.
Of course, we couldn’t dress up an entire wedding venue and not take pictures, so we seized the opportunity to work with MCG Photography and put together a little styled shoot. Thank you to MCG Photography! This week, A Lowcountry Wedding decided to feature our styled shoot; you can see that here.BBJ Linen, that the vision came together. We incorporated hints of hunter green and lots of gold accents to make the patterned linen stand out even more. On the round tables, we chose to use full-length, to-the-floor linens, while on the longer community tables, we used a matching table runner. This allowed another rustic touch, by keeping some of the wooden table exposed.
Since Engaging Events owns so much of the decor that we use, we were able to take all of our favorite gold items and incorporate them to add some shine, without looking too garish. The gold votive holders, in particular, added a much needed touch to each dinner table.
The floral containers that we used include our short gold centerpiece holders (seen on the round tables) and our tall rectangular floral arrangement stands (seen on the longer community tables). We also added a sprig of hydrangea to each of the napkins, which we had wrapped around the chargers. Since our napkin linen choice was very subtle, we were able to add a soft floral touch to each place setting without overloading the room with flowers. We also added in some simple bud vases to the higher cocktail tables, to compliment their beautiful hunter green linens.Eventhaus, including the gold chargers, the gold-rimmed glasses, gold flatware, dancefloor, and stage.
We also had a great deal of help from Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The beautiful cake with its gold foil accents was provided by Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and we set it on top of our own dark wooden cake stand. We were also able to use Osprey Point’s own clubhouse chairs and ceremony chairs, and they ended up matching the ivory tones in our linens perfectly! To make the event a little more fun, the resort’s chefs prepared hors d’oeuvres for the guests, and provided a cute popcorn station and JNSQ Rosé Cru.pretty amazing.
