For Sara and Matt, celebrating happily ever after came complete with friends, family and, of course, furbabies. Hosted on Hilton Head Island, this beach-side soiree was clad in the softest hues, brightest whites and delicate pinks creating the sweetest watercolor dreamscape.


As a veterinarian and dog-mom, Sara ditched traditional bouquets in favor of her wedding party carrying precious, adoptable puppies, and had her first puppy love step in to be the ring bearer.


For her gown, Sara chose Carol Hannah’s whimsical gold-foil Kensington skirt with an extended train to catch the beach breeze. She paired her ethereal ensemble with Carol Hannah’s Tousled Bustier, Haute Bride jewelry and Kate Spade’s glitter clutch.


In addition to helping our bride find “the one”, Southern Protocol Bridal also led Mom to her dream mother-of-the-bride dress in Kate McDonald’s Kyle gown in the softest powder pink. To polish off the party, Maddison Row South also supplied the gold bowtie for the pup-of-honor.
