This was an amazing Black Tie Beach wedding on Hilton Head! And despite the cloudy skies and passing rain showers, Gabriella and Tyler’s day was perfect!
Before I elaborate, I want to point out that, no wedding day is “perfect” per se. And that’s okay! Because perfect is boring. (and everyone’s definition of “perfect’ is different. ) Despite all the specific planning, wedding days tend to take on a mind of their own. And what makes it perfect, is being able to go with the flow, and embrace all the beauty that these imperfections offer. Who’s with me?!
Anyway, Let’s set the scene. Hilton Head Island. Early November. Warm Breezes (or winds rather. LOL) Palm Trees, and a beautiful large home nestled right on the beach. While all of this is amazingly incredible, what made the scene complete was the family and friends who were able to attend. It was the love that surrounded the couple that day. It was all the memories that were made.
So let’s take a peek into their day!!
The First Look
Gabriella and Tyler chose to share an intimate first look! And we did so on a beautiful Stone Terrace that overlooked the front yard below.
The Beach Wedding
It was a windy day, here on Hilton Head! But that just made for a more interesting and memorable ceremony. Gabriella and Tyler embraced it and they were united surrounded by their immediate families.
I loved the simplicity of their ceremony. Adorned only by the natural beauty that surrounded Gabriella and Tyler. Which really put the focus on what matters…. Them.

Black Tie Reception
Gabriella and Tyler chose to have a smaller, more intimate dinner reception. While it was a Black Tie affair, the ambiance was one of love and laid back fun.
It took place outside under the stars (or clouds for that matter LOL) and a set of beautiful string lights. It provided the most beautiful setting for their event.
Such a huge congratulations to Gabriella and Tyler!!
