This destination harbor side wedding was one of culture and class. Nancy and Haniel are from Atlanta, Georgia, but originally hail from Kenya. This made for a great guest turn out from family and friends from overseas. The great Kenyan culture was palpable in the air and made this wedding ceremony and reception really special!
The Charleston Harbor and Resort and Marina made a delightful backdrop for these noteworthy nuptials. The couple passionately exchanged their vows on the pier amid the stunning views of the Charleston harbor. What a romantic sight to behold! The bridesmaids donned flattering pink colored dresses. A memorable moment was when the family sang some traditional Kenyan songs during the ceremony. This was a great touch that surely reminded the bride and groom of their home country. All of these great moments were captured by Surrender Films videography.
The reception was at the same location, but inside of the resort. There was still an amazing view of the harbor and bridge from the reception area. The color pallette for this event was mostly pink and white, but bright blue accents were added to emulate the feeling of the water in the harbor. The reception space was elegantly decorated with blush and cream florals by Loluma. This also tied in with the sweet cake by Cakes by Kasarda. The couple and their guests were having a ball while dancing the night away… just look how happy they are in these pictures! This day truly emulated the great love that the couple feels for one another.
This harbor side day was one to remember. Thank you to Snyder for the rentals, DJ Moo-Moo for the entertainment, Two Beautiful Hands of Atlanta for the hair and makeup, and finally to Kayla Turpin of MOD Events Charleston for the day of coordination.
