Here at Coastal Bride, beach weddings are our jam so we were super excited when Ava Moore Photography shared this sweet Westin Hilton Head Wedding with us. With exposed beams and a panoramic view of the ocean, this venue is the ideal backdrop for a beach bride. Featuring bridesmaids in light blue dresses, coral bouquets, and a seaside ceremony, this Westin Hilton Head wedding is what coastal wedding dreams are made of! Read on below for more of this couples sweet story including all of the thoughtful elements they included in their big day!
In 2012 my dad was diagnosed with cancer and had a heart attack resulting in triple bypass surgery. Our family went through a lot but we got through it together. My sister Abby’s married in November of 2012 but unfortunately my dad was in the hospital during the wedding. He begged his doctors to release him long enough to walk my sister down the aisle. He was in a wheelchair and we all were filled with such emotion. Right after the ceremony he went back to the hospital and my sister unfortunately didn’t get to have a first dance with her dad. The week we got engaged, I told David I wanted to split my first dance in two and give half to my sister. We surprised Abby on our wedding day and she and my dad got have the father daughter dance they never got to have on her wedding day. To say it was an emotional moment that we will never forget is an understatement.Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now? First and foremost, talk with your future spouse about the things that are the most important to you (ours was our venue and photographer) and focus your budget there. If you don’t love something don’t have it at your wedding! There are no rules in wedding planning. The only thing that matters is that you and your future spouse enjoy and love the day. Also, space tasks out! Order things in advance as much as you can – you will thank yourself later!
