I love when couples include pieces of themselves in decor and the general style of the day just feels very “them”. That was definitely the case for Gokhan & Kathryn at their Mediterranean meets southern soiree at South Wind Ranch, a wedding venue near Greenville, SC. Although Gokhan’s family was unable to attend the day due to ongoing pandemic travel restrictions the two found a way to incorporate his Turkish roots and include family members in a live feed (because of the time difference some were up in the middle of the night just to congratulate the couple-that’s LOVE y’all!) Their invitation suite featured a blue tile motif that perfectly complimented the blue Turkish rugs used for the ceremony as well as the other turquoise toned elements of the day.
There are so many amazing wedding venues near Greenville, South Carolina and South Wind Ranch is no exception! Their bridal suite isn’t just a room-it is a WHOLE HOUSE complete with a kitchen, beds, and the most deliciously glow-y natural light coming in from great big windows. Kathryn’s girls got ready in matching printed pajamas and had some fun exchanging gifts and a few rainbow jello shooters.
Kathryn’s parents were so sweet and emotional. As you keep reading you’ll see her adorable daddy and brother absolutely melt over their first look with her! Her bridesmaids also took a first look of her in the dress and their faces were priceless!
Gohkan & Kathryn opted to use South Wind Ranch’s white pavilion for their ceremony during which they planted a small olive tree together. Artist Laddie Niel Smith created a stunning live painting of the ceremony as it happened.
