When Hurricane Mathew blew through the Southeast last year, Cydney had fears that their wedding venue, the Sonesta Hilton Head Island Resort, may have been a casualty. Her mom even checked the satellite images on Google until she was certain their venue was still standing! Fortunately the storm wouldn’t affect the planning of their perfect day.
As they stood before their family and friends, they read words written on playing cards they had penned when they first fell in love. There were heartwarming sentiments of their favorite qualities about each other and funny tidbits about cooking dinner. And in a moment that brought nearly everyone to tears, Cydney promised her love and protection to Dennis’s daughter. What a beautiful family they make!
Cydney & Dennis – Thank you so much for having us as a part of your wedding day! We wish you both all the happiness and love in your marriage! xoxo! – L&J
Cydney picked soft colors and tones to perfectly suit a beach wedding.
Solitaire rings are my favorite – they’re classic and timeless – and Cydney’s ring was no exception!
During cocktail hour, we were able to sneak away with Cydney and Dennis for portraits. We had full access to the grounds at the Sonesta, giving us great little areas to photograph in.
Look at the back of her dress! That lace is just too pretty!
Despite it being May in the South, we couldn’t have asked for better weather. All day there was a nice breeze that kept the temperatures in check.
Cydney’s bouquet by A Floral Affair was a sweet combination of white roses, calla lilies and greenery.
Their reception was filled with sentimental toasts, speeches of gratitude and hours of dancing barefoot!
