Marcella and Ward

Marcella and Ward made it a point to blend the Indonesian heritage of the bride with the Carolina traditions of the groom. To accomplish this, they combined the beauty of South Carolina with Indonesian cultural influences! To kick off the wedding festivities they started off with an Oyster Roast welcome dinner overlooking the marshes of Kiawah Island. The following day was the ceremony, which was held at the cathedral of St. John the Baptist in downtown Charleston and the reception at Osprey Point Golf Club back on Kiawah Island. Marcella and Ward were inspired to incorporate a feather theme, from the various types of feathers on the bride’s wedding dress – custom designed by Maya Ratih Couture, to feathers on the cake- done by The Cake Stand.  Indonesian elements included a pre-reception tea ceremony, custom wedding toppers of the couple in traditional Indonesian garb, and kopi luwak (a rare civet coffee) for the guests! It was a gorgeous day with so many thoughtful, personal touches!
