Seaside Chapel Wedding
This week we are loving on Hannah and Sam’s Seaside Chapel Wedding by our 30A Lister Pure 7 Studios! It all started with their adorable Love Story that Pure 7 told so eloquently on their blog post…
“Seven years ago, the two met at a party hosted by a mutual friend. Both had decided to go on a whim, so it was lucky (or destiny, perhaps?) that their paths crossed. They hit it off immediately, and after a successful first date and a fancy dinner, their forever story began.
Fast forward through a whirlwind of dates, laughter, shared smiles, travels, and dog snuggles, and the time came for Sam to pop the question. Romantic doesn’t even begin to describe their engagement. Picture this: a ski trip in Utah, horse-drawn sleigh, crisp mountain air, immaculate white snow, winter wonderland proposal… it was nothing short of magical.
After loading up their blankets on the sleigh, they moved slowly up the snowy side of the mountain. Half way up, the coachmen stopped to feed the horse and mentioned it was a beautiful spot for a photo. Thinking it all very suspicious, Hannah removed the ring she always wore on her ring finger and stashed it in her pocket. You know, just in case.
Though she had her suspicions, when Sam dropped to one knee, Hannah was still so surprised and incredibly excited. Ring on her finger, they hopped back into the sleigh and made their way back. The sleigh ride was over, but their journey together was just beginning.”
Sam and Hannah knew they had always wanted a destination wedding – the kind with an intimate ceremony that included only the most important people in their lives. “The 30A area is a place my family had been coming for family vacations since I was little,” Hannah said. “We loved the quaint, idyllic seaside town and all the beauty of the crisp white sand and clear blue water. Once Sam and I began dating, I convinced his family to begin vacationing there as well. They immediately fell in love and six years later when choosing where to get married, we knew immediately Seaside and the surrounding 30A area was the place for us.”
The party started with a welcome beach bonfire Thursday night with Grayton Catering, followed by Friday’s rehearsal dinner at the Lakehouse and Boathouse in Watercolor, and concluded with a Seaside Chapel wedding and the reception following on the Ruskin Lawn.
“The whole weekend was completely magical and we could not have asked for anything more! 30A will always be such a special place for us, and we cannot wait to share it with our own future family,” Hannah said.
