Southern Garden Wedding with Nautical Touches

Kelsey and Michael’s garden wedding was a simply Southern celebration, full of delicious design and indulgent food. Their coastal-inspired color palette of navy blue, aqua, grey, and gold was complemented by subtle nautical touches.

The gorgeously dramatic arbor of the Tabby Garden provided a stunning backdrop for Kelsey and Michael’s outdoor ceremony. Guests could breathe deeply of the fresh salt water air and enjoy butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, like Caprese Salad Lollipops and our famous Beaufort Bay Shrimp Wraps.

The reception was lit by enchanting market lights  and candles. Southern luxury food stations ensured that guests ate well, with a selection of delicious coastal fare like Lowcountry Crab Cakes, Southern Shrimp Sushi, and Fish Tacos. It was a decadently Southern wedding!
