We were so excited to be invited to the VIP cocktail party and Grand Opening Celebration of the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel with the star host David Tutera, premier celebrity event planner and host of WE-TV’s My Fair Wedding!

The chapel was originally built by prized artisans to reflect the look of a turn-of the century Baptist chapel for the Miley Cyrus movie, The Last Song. It was slated for demolition after filming wrapped but at the last minute was saved and repurposed as a unique, beautiful wedding venue.

The VIP party brought together some of the most talented vendors in the Georgia and Coastal Carolinas to showcase themed wedding vignettes including a Lowcountry theme, Coastal, Classic and Picnic Posh.  We took lots of pictures (which we apologize are not fabulous quality but are of fabulous things) to share with you and hope that you are just as inspired as we were!

This is the beautiful ceiling in the chapel.

This is the Lowcountry vignette that was styled by Ashley Rhodes Events and florals by Emily Wynn Wildes Floral Design.

Fandango Events constructed and provided the beautiful draped fabric.  The hand strung oyster shell chandelier was graciously provided by Lowcountry Originals.

Sallie’s Greatest created this amazing ‘jar inspired’ vignette.  Literally every item you could think of was served in a jar.  There was layered salad in a jar, dessert in a jar, jars of honey, etc. We fell in love this cozy vignette and its creator Sallie Dent Porth was just the sweetest. She makes tons of different homemade jams and jellies from fresh home grown ingredients.  Her motto per the back of he business card is “Love thy farmer.”

This stunning vignette was created by Sebril Smith Events and was created for the ‘Picnic Posh’ theme.  This picture does not do that amazing chandelier creation justice.

Leoci’s Trattoria created this rustic vignette reminiscient of an small Italian village cafe.

And these little treats were created by Gigi’s Cupcakes.  They had the most divine raspberry cream cupcakes.  They were so delicious we had two (don’t judge they were tiny)!

One vendor we adored but did not get a good picture of their work was Urban Poppy.  She creates some really original floral designs and incorporates found objects and repurposes them in very creative ways.
