A Romantic, DIY Beach Wedding at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Noelle Nackino and Patrick Pisciuneri planned an intimate beach wedding at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Having vacationed in Hilton Head Island as children, it seemed like the perfect spot to tie the knot. The pair gathered together 60 of their closest family members and friends for a waterfront ceremony followed by dinner and lots of dancing. “Our ideal wedding was a celebration of our union in front of our closest friends and family members,” says Noelle. “We wanted everyone to relax, be comfortable and just have fun together! We feel so blessed that for a long weekend we were able to have all the people we love more than anything together all at once.”

Noelle and Patrick put their creative talents to work, handcrafting many of the day’s elements to put a personal spin on the day. From the driftwood and sea shell wedding arbor to the invitations and centerpieces, each and every detail was a labor of love. “We were excited to take on the wedding planning as a team effort,” says Noelle. “We even sewed our own napkins together for each place setting.”

A color palette of soft pastel colors, natural textures and antique accents worked together to create a whimsical, vintage-inspired scene that perfectly reflected the warm, inviting and romantic vibe the couple hoped to achieve. After the couple exchanged vows in a ceremony officiated by Noelle’s father, the celebration continued at the resort with dinner, dancing and delicious treats like homemade cookies and cake.
