On May 11th, Allison and Michael had their destination wedding at The Citadel Beach House. This preppy beach-side wedding celebrated the fun and sweet personalities of the bride and groom. This five acre venue is located on the ocean front of the Isle of Palms and was the perfect location for this nautical, preppy inspired wedding. Allison and Michael exchanged their vows by the beach and continued the celebration with a beautiful reception, also at The Citadel Beach House.
To accent the preppy and nautical feel of this beach-side wedding, Allison and Michael incorporated a navy, white, and green color scheme. The colors were used for the table runners, patterned pillows among Adirondack chairs, and spring floral arrangements.
Thanks to the help of Wild Flowers Inc., the bridal party looked amazing with their fresh, green, and spring inspired bridal bouquets. What a statement these simple yet beautiful arrangements made.
Southern style food stations were provided at the reception by B. Gourmet Catering. Guests enjoyed these southern dishes, as well as miniature desserts and cake with fresh, strawberry filling from The Ashley Bakery.
A Charleston wedding would not be complete without some type of monogram included somewhere on behalf of the couple! Allison and Michael used monogrammed cups from Formosa Boutique, that matched the navy theme, for beverages. What a unique keepsake these cups made!
Flip flops were available for guests who wanted to dance the night away on the dance floor with Rob Duren Productions or take a stroll on the beach.
After a fun beach-side reception where guests danced and enjoyed yummy food and deserts, the bride and groom departed via Charleston Black Cab as wedding guests blew bubbles.
