Real Wedding: Dana and Matt

Dana and Matt were married at The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Spa in late March 2014. Their ceremony and cocktail hour took place on the beautiful Oceanfront Deck and the reception took place at the adjacent Oceanfront Pavilion. They had around 100 guests in attendance for their destination wedding and the celebration was one for the books.

Dana’s style evoked classic elegance with a touch of glam. She wanted her wedding to reflect her style: preppy and refined. The groom, Matt, served in the United States Military Academy and during his time traveled through Korea, Germany, Afghanistan and Arizona. Being that Matt is a military man, he and Dana knew they wanted to incorporate a Saber Arch into their wedding ceremony. The Saber Arch is where a bride and groom pass under an honorary arch made of sabers or swords just after being announced husband and wife. The gentlemen holding the swords are dressed in uniform.

I started working with Dana and Matt about a year prior to their March 2014 nuptials. The couple lived in California so most of the planning was done from across the country via phone chats, shared Pinterest boards, emails galore and our handy dandy online planning software. They made two trips into town: one to pick their venue and one to meet with all of their vendors in person. It was a whirlwind of fun, which sure made the months fly by!

The team of vendors were hand picked by Dana and Matt and all came highly recommended by myself. Photography by Anne captured their wedding day beautifully and I am thrilled to share a handful of some of the images from their spring soiree!
