Mary & Read {Cloister Hotel}

Mary & Read {Cloister Hotel}

We’re taking a little trip today to a secret garden paradise filled with ancient live oaks, stunning architecture, and an ivy-covered chapel straight out of a fairytale. The Cloister Hotel on Sea Island, Georgia, was special to both Mary and Read (her family has vacationed there since before she was born and his parents actually honeymooned there), so it seemed a matter of destiny that they would say “I do” at the iconic resort a few hours south of Charleston. Guests were welcomed into the garden chapel by Mary’s 14 nieces and nephews (how very Royal Wedding of them)! After the beautiful ceremony, the celebration continued in the Spanish Hall, a space overflowing with natural light and Old World charm, which the design team at Sea Island Event Design flawlessly accented with neutral linens, mercury glass, and florals of blush and cream mixed with fresh greenery. Each guest’s place setting was graced with a small posy tied in an amber colored ribbon—charm personified. After their delicious Southern dinner, they cut the cake and headed outside for drinks and dancing on the terrace before being showered in rose petals in a grand exit. Trust us, this Olivia Rae James wedding will have you pinning your hearts out all weekend.
