SUMMER DESTINATION WEDDING | DOUBLETREE RESORT BY HILTON | MYRTLE BEACH, SC

It is times like this dream wedding, that make you truly love what you do! The Sun News so sweetly created a contest for lovely couples with the hopes of having their dream wedding right here in beautiful Myrtle Beach. With the help of some local Fairy God-Vendors, one lucky couple’s wish was granted! With only 30 days til the wedding day it was MAJOR crunch time - Invitations had to be designed and mailed, dresses and suits to be chosen and fitted for, decor, and so much more.

A heart-touching story, the groom saved the lives of two girls whose car ran off a bridge and into a body of water. After a life-changing moment they quickly became best friends of the couple. To show their love and appreciation, the two girls submitted a video sharing their unique tale. It was a no brainer as to who should win this dream wedding giveaway, Christy & DJ!

Some of the best vendors in town donated their services to create this once in a lifetime experience for a more than deserving couple. Their love for the natural outdoors lead the way to designing the wedding of their dreams. Blended bright, summer arrangements with a rustic wilderness of earthy moss, wood centerpieces, and accents of deer antlers tying the whole setting together. Guests shared sweet notes and best wishes for the couple by signing a large jenga set, hand-made by the groom himself! After enjoying a decadent raw bar and the most savory carving stations, family and friends danced to the best of times with tunes spinned by DJ Stephen Craig. Wishing the couple a final goodbye, all joined in a sparkler send-off!

Thanks to the help of each and every vendor, these lovely newlyweds began their lives together with a dream come true!

Sweet, Pure Love | Lindsey & Eric | Pine Lakes Country Club, Myrtle Beach, SC | EVENTS BY SANTANA

This wedding was the epitome of sweet, pure love! These two are so head over heels for each other and completely inspired me. They have been through so many rough patches in their life and to watch them come together and tackle life one step at a time was truly remarkable.

Lindsey & Eric are young, kind, and full of love and life and wanted their wedding day to reflect that. They chose a soft palette of light grey, greens and pale yellow. Pine Lakes Country Club courtyard was the most perfect backdrop to their afternoon garden ceremony.

When it came to the details, they surely didn’t skip a beat! If y’all know me then you know I LOVE my high heels. When I saw that Lindsey had custom wedges created with green and silver rhinestones and her new last name I was in AWE! So adorable!!! There were yard games such as corn-hole and life size connect four for guests to enjoy on the lawn during cocktail hour. The Brides mother had collected beautiful vintage glasses cottage homes that were used as décor pieces (I’ve never seen these before and now would love to start collecting my own).  The night ended with a delicious Sundae Bar! Ice cream, sprinkles, chocolate and so much more.

DJ Scott & Co.’s very own ,DJ Conner, kept the night alive with fun, popular beats and colorful uplights surrounding the dancefloor. Coccadotts was the creator of the yummy 2-tiered cake and assorted flavored mini cupcakes. Hannah of Hannah Ruth Photography captured every special moment and detail, including the sparkler exit.

This wedding was one for the books. Linsdey & Eric, you two hold special places in my heart and remind me everyday to love my significant other through thick & thin! I wish you both the most love & happiness life can give. God Bless
