The marsh magic, Spanish moss, soft-sanded beach and a family home drew Jen and Mike to one of their favorite places—Fripp Island—to celebrate their love with family, friends and their sweet puppy Lilian. Their attention to detail produced special moments, food and cocktails for their guests. Jen and Mike exchanged vows at the edge of the golf course overlooking an endless marsh just before sunset. A buzz of love was in the air that warm April night. After dinner and toasts, twilight blanketed the island, and the twinkling lights inside the tent began to glow. A live band’s music floated through the fairways. Just before the party ended, the guests were treated to special late-night bites—a truly delicious way to end the evening!
