I can vividly picture myself at today’s wedding at Sanderling Resort: casting my shoes aside and feeling the sand beneath my toes, sipping a cool beverage during the brightly colored Kenya themed cocktail hour, and taking a late night stroll down the pier with its twinkling lights. It has the perfect amount of whimsy coupled with a carefree feel – a good match for a relaxed beach wedding!
Remarks from Sanderling Resort: “We thought we loved the beach before, but coupled with the bold, bright colors of Kenyan fabrics against the sandy dunes, this wedding took our venue to a beautiful place. This couple’s destination wedding took on parts of their home country (Kenya) with wraps from the region, a signature Dawa drink and colorful pillows flown from their home. They kept their reception in our Soundside Pavilion casual and romantic with the design of Bells and Whistles including vintage lounge furniture, family-style dinner around farm tables and flickering candles amassed as centerpieces. Take a look through the images of Neil GT Photography who captured Stephanie and Jon’s wedding day!”
What types of flowers did you have?
“Stephanie wanted a petite, feminine bouquet of white flowers with knee length ivory, taupe, and cream ribbons.”
What were your wedding favors?
“At the welcome reception, guests went home with authentic Kikois, which are similar to sarongs or wraps from Kenya. At the wedding reception, guests received a packet of lavender seeds instructing to ‘let love grow‘.”
What were the highlights from the ceremony and reception?
“For the reception: when the groom’s two brothers gave an exceptional lip sync performance complete with a choreographed dance and puppets, to You’re the One that I Want– an ode to the newlywed’s relationship that they felt perfectly resembled that of Danny and Sandy’s from the movie Grease.”
