Hilton Head Weddings and Bridal
The bride enters the room and walks down a long petal-speckled aisle. Waiting at the end is her husband-to-be. Everything is perfect in that moment.
But what will that moment look like? And where will it take place?
In the South, weddings are reunions. They are a weekend-long affair where friends and family on both sides spend the weekend dining, dancing and sharing memories. They often feel more like a mini-vacation than a one-day event.
One of the most exciting wedding trends in recent years that is currently going stronger than ever is the push to step away from tradition and look toward creativity. Couples want to incorporate elements of their personalities into every aspect of their big day. Here are some ways brides and grooms are breaking the mold.
Many couples are choosing to have a theme that touches on different aspects of their wedding. One popular trend is a roaring ‘20s- and Great Gatsby-theme affair. Lavish gold accents, ‘20s-style invitations and even music of the era can all be tied together. Bohemian glamour is another popular theme for 2014 weddings and can be a simple one to incorporate by using floral garland, wooded elements and relaxed, flowing dresses for the bridesmaids.

Last August, Laren and Daniel Moskowitz celebrated a beautiful, eightyear romance when each finally got the rare privilege of marrying their best friend.
The couple’s story began when a gentleman came into Laren Moskowitz’s (then Laren Brown’s) real estate office to pick up the keys to a property. Moskowitz, working from her office in the back, was called to the front by the office’s receptionist who later revealed she thought the handsome, darkhaired visitor seemed like someone Moskowitz would immediately hit it off with. She guessed accurately.
The couple both work in real estate, Daniel Moskowitz as an associate broker at Dunes Marketing Group Real Estate, and Laren Moskowitz as a sales associate at Schembra Real Estate Group Inc.
