(I hope you got to see Part 1 yesterday! If not, head there now!)
After the super cool wedding ceremony at Wildlife Preserve, we walked the land bridge to the private island pavilion with the tunes of Mason Waters and the Groove Allstars in the air. The party started instantly with the first dances and everyone else joining in. Guests were enjoying the dinner and drinks on this perfect afternoon. It was great to see the owners of two of my favorite restaurants there – Southern Soul BBQ and Bubba Garcia’s – as well as so many friends from high school. The groom and I were at Glynn Academy at the same time though we didn’t really meet until years later.
There was so much DIY goodness at this wedding that I might need another blog post just for the details. The couple and the friends and family did so much to make this as non-“off the shelf” as possible. The catering blended in perfectly with the look.
Lance’s dad made a surprise appearance on stage – for the first time in over ten years! It was a great surprise for Lance and his family. (His dad can rock a guitar!) You’ll also see the animal mask photo booth and the masks making their way onto the dance floor. It was fun.
The night was ended with the lighting of paper lanterns into the evening sky.
