A Rustic, Elegant Wedding at The Cloister at Sea Island in Sea Island, Georgia

The Cloister at Sea Island in Sea Island, Georgia, is a fantastic destination wedding spot full of casual Southern charm, intimate spaces and gorgeous natural scenery. That’s why it was an easy decision for Whitney Kushner (29 and works for NBC Universal) and Trey Milburn (28 and works for The Gores Group) to host their wedding where they often vacation themselves! Augusta Cole of Easton Events guided Whitney and Trey through the decision-making process and helped them plan the details of their perfect day. They had a classic black tie wedding with a rustic twist, and played up the natural surroundings with neutral tones of blush, beige, gold, silver and bronze with touches of wood and metals. Incredible fresh flowers, greenery and even fruit from their florist, The Vine, brought their theme of understated natural elegance to life, including exquisite, rare touches in Whitney’s bouquet: carnivorous pitcher plants! Our favorite detail? Whitney and Trey wanted to make their guests feel at home, so their reception began with custom wooden boards of charcuterie, cheeses and fruits, followed by a delicious family-style meal and beautiful, rustic naked cake (and all totally gluten-free!). The talented Ashley Seawell Photography created long-lasting memories in her gorgeous photos (without making Whitney and Trey feel like they had to constantly pose)!
