A Beach-Chic Wedding at The Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, South Carolina

With everything from inclusive accommodations to delicious catering to wonderful service, it was a no brainier for Nicole Rhodes (28 and cofounder and president of Seirén Inc.) and Joseph Boulukos (30 and vice president at Siebert Brandford Shank & Co) to choose The Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, for their beach-chic fete. “Charleston has always been one of our favorite places, and we quickly fell in love with the surrounding area,” Nicole says. “The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island was everything we were looking for in terms of a venue.” Wanting the overall look of the wedding to feel warm and relaxed, yet polished, the couple used coastal shades of blue, silver and cream for their color palette and worked with wedding planner Luke Wilson to ensure they got hitched without a hitch. “Luke was truly the most magnificent planner I could have asked for,” Nicole says. “His balance of intensity and light-heartedness made me feel so secure about every detail while still enjoying the process every step of the way.” Sparing no detail, Nicole and Joseph made sure everything effortlessly flowed together—from the watercolor portrait of the ocean on the save-the-dates to the firework show at the end of the night. “Right as we cut into the cake we had a fireworks show over the Ocean Course, which was coordinated with a few of our favorite songs including ‘I Will Wait’ by Mumford and Sons,” Nicole says. There are so many details we love! See them all, beautifully captured by Corbin Gurkin Photography, below!
