Today’s beautiful wedding blends the Indonesian heritage of the bride with the Carolina traditions of the groom. To accomplish this, Marcella and Ward combined the beauty of South Carolina with Indonesian cultural influences. That meant starting with an Oyster Roast welcome dinner overlooking the marshes of Kiawah Island. The ceremony was held at the cathedral of St. John the Baptist in downtown Charleston and the reception at Osprey Point Golf Club back on Kiawah Island. They featured many beautiful feathers throughout their day, from the feather detail in the bride’s dress and bouquet, groom’s bow tie and even on their three-tier cake. Indonesian elements were included through batik table runners, pre-reception tea and kopi luwak (a rare civet coffee) for the guests. View all the lovely photos by Richard Bell Photography, below.
