Beautiful individuals inside and out, Shane & Zac are one-of-a-kind. Their world’s are surrounded by amazing family and friends who adore them and they made me feel that same love and admiration from the first time I met them. As nature lovers and outdoorsmen, the couple routinely visited Atalaya Castle at Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC, which later became home to their special day.
Atalaya Castle, a historic castle in the Grand Strand, was the most whimsical backdrop for the colorful garden themed wedding. Floral napkins from Dillard’s were the inspiration and focal point for the entire day and everything was planned around this one ravishing linen. Shane & Zac even created a matching hand sewn ribbon garland as the ceremony backdrop which tied it all together.
The cocktail style reception was full of fun activities for all ages. Along with their families, they built cornhole boards, adult size connect four and a gorgeous wooden bar. Sweet signature cocktails and a homebrewed craft beer made of peaches and cream were accompanied by a dessert bar of mini cake shots from Buttercream Cakes & Catering!
Across the foliage wall entering the reception area, strung memories of Shane and Zac and their together journey together thus far! Guests were encouraged to take polaroid pictures ((SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE)) to add to the collection. DJ Wayne, Premier DJ Entertainment, kept the party alive by mixing club style upbeat tunes.
The night was topped off with a red carpet that led Shane & Zac to a 1940’s Packard- Studebaker, from RSG Event Design, which reminisced Shane’s childhood, as his grandfather had one as well.
I could go on and on about this wedding but I’ll let the photos do some of the work. The team of vendors for this day was spectacular and it has been one of my favorite weddings to date!
S&Z, I wish you all the best of luck and love and I look forward to our lifetime of friendship!
LOVE IS LOVE <3
