malia + mike = beach bliss

In late January, Salutations & Soirees was selected to plan the wedding of Malia and Mike at Fripp Island, SC.  This beautiful beach destination was the perfect spot for this lovely couple to say “I Do!”.  Malia and Mike, who live in NJ, were looking forward to their intimate ceremony of 50 guests and spending lots of time with friends and family during their special weekend.

The wedding was on June 4th, leaving us approximately 4 months to plan their big day from start to finish.  Malia and Mike chose gorgeous shades of blue and white to compliment the ceremony site.  The seaside ceremony took place in front of the beautiful home that housed the reception following.

The day prior, all the furniture was removed from the home and we went to work transforming the home into the space Malia had envisioned.  Malia and I met 1 time during the planning process to pick out the linens, sample the food and cake and decide on the layout.  She wanted to incorporate some florals from Hawaii, where the bride was born.  The Plumerias added this hint of Hawaii to the evening along with the sweet aroma that they gave off.  Just Weddings Flowers by Kaye was able to capture the tropical feel for Malia, but with a touch of tradition with the Hydrangeas.

She also wanted her guests to be able to enjoy the scenery, the beach!  The home they chose to host the evenings events allowed us to do this by utilizing the large outdoor balcony that overlooked the ocean.  Guests mingled before the ceremony began and after by the coordinating cocktail tables and lounge area before heading inside for dinner that was served on gorgeous white pin tuck linens.  The rental company in Beaufort, Amazing Event Rentals, had all the items that we needed to create this fantastic affair!

This intimate ceremony and reception was enjoyed by all and I wish Malia and Mike all the best in their new life together!
