Watercolor, Florida Beach Destination Wedding

Jamie and Justin traveled from Dallas to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida to say I do at the idyllic Watercolor Inn & Resort with 110 friends and family present to celebrate for four straight days!

To announce the fun to come, Southern Fried Paper created the couple’s custom wedding invitations.

The bride went with a destination wedding dress that wasn’t “fussy” as she had the beach in mind as her backdrop.  And of course she had the shoes to match!

Jamie also made the groomsmen’s boutonnieres! She used a basket of shells that she found at a garage sale for $.99.

Each bridesmaid was given the choice to select their own dress based on their personal styles. A great idea and it came together perfectly in pictures!

The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s best friend from college while the bride’s grandfather’s school bell from 1940 was rung at the end of the ceremony to pronounce them husband and wife!

Lots of personal touches were found throughout this special day. Jamie selected tulips in her bridal bouquet because it was her late grandmother’s and mom’s favorite flower.   The bride’s grandmother’s wedding band was tied to her bouquet with a blue ribbon – something borrowed and something blue!

Great idea for outdoor weddings – pashmina’s to keep warm with a sign that read “to have and to hold in case you get cold.”

The couple wanted a “beach chic” look to the reception. Mission accomplished!

A Burlap Inspired Destination Wedding in Florida

Pure Sugar Studios Wedding Photography 1014 copy A Burlap Inspired Destination Wedding in Florida

Brandon and Jennifer hosted their destination wedding in the beautiful St. Augustine, FL with friends and family by their sides to share in the big “I do’s!”  We asked Jennifer how they selected this special location.  “Brandon and I met in St. Augustine while attending the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences.  One of our very first dates was to a classmate’s wedding on the rooftop of the White Room and I knew the moment I stepped out onto that rooftop that I wanted to be married there.  Little did I know, that I would get married there to that man I barely knew.  Having our wedding on the rooftop of the white room really was a dream come true for both of us.”

We planned the entire wedding in six months, and we somehow managed to do it all from Texas.  We have been living in Austin, TX for over two years now and it was definitely a challenge to plan wedding from so far in such a short amount of time so we had to put trust in our friends still living in town to help us make so many important decisions.   My maid of honor completed our wedding cake testing and an usher had to be the witness to sign the contract for the white room because we were unable to be there.  Even with the challenge of distance, our vendors were so amazing that the entire process went without a hiccup.”

“One of my favorite photos of my bouquet displays a bluebird pin that was given to me by my mother in law to represent my something blue.  It was given to her by her mother in law on her wedding day, and it holds such a special place in my heart.”

The flower girl of course didn’t steal the show but we can’t help but fall in love with this little one!

The bridesmaids’ neutral palette went perfectly with the rustic design this duo had in mind.

We asked Jennifer what the inspiration for the rustic wedding décor was.  I am originally from a very small town in southern Mississippi and a true southern girl at heart, so the rustic theme has always appealed to me, however I wanted to find the right balance of classic meets rustic to accentuate our beautiful venue.  The decorating began with mason jars and burlap and the touches of lace and mercury glass were added to make it unique for us.  I also have always loved soft neutrals and that’s usually all you’ll find in my wardrobe so I couldn’t have felt more like myself on our perfect day.”

“Our favorite element from the wedding was the sweet treats bar.  We wanted it to be bright and fun but simple, and the pop of color in the room was such a great contrast to the otherwise neutral palette.  Brandon proposed at the end of the 5K color run in New Orleans, LA and we were both covered head to toe in bright paint and he had a photographer to capture the moment and it was so special to us and we wanted a way to incorporate it into our big day, so from the photos came the inspiration for the candy bar.”

And in addition to the sweets bar was this ‘spooned’ cake complete with monogram cake topper.

Saint Augustine, Florida Destination I Do

We’re obsessed with Mike and Allison’s wedding color palette, among other things!  This sweet couple selected Florida for their destination wedding and we chatted with their wedding planner, Valerie Pritt from Fleur de Lis Event Consulting who shared with us some insights into their special day.  “It was a non-traditional wedding and will definitely go down in the book as one of my favorites.  Allison and Mike originate from Pennsylvania but chose to have an intimate celebration with close friends and family in Florida. To accommodate all their guests they reserved the Bayfront Marin House; the hotel was also where the reception was held- a perfect place for this fun loving bunch.”

“The wedding color palette was an absolute favorite of mine- purple, silver and green and Ashley Steeby Photography did a wonderful job of capturing everything!”

Such a beautiful way to dress a bridal party – all in the color palette but each unique in cut, pattern and hue!

“August is an unpredictable month and rain was in the forecast for that day.  However, by the time the ceremony started everything was perfect, including the weather. The ceremony and cocktail hour was held at the Llambias House, which was only a few streets over from the Marin House.  It was a wonderful ceremony with unforgettable vows and joyful tears.”

“After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a  few glasses of champagne and some light appetizers while the family and couple took pictures.  The bride and groom mixed it up a little by having their 1st dance at the ceremony site as well as the Matron of Honor and Best Man toasts. Afterwards everyone walked back over to the Marin House to enjoy the rest of the festivities.”

“As I told you earlier, it was a non-traditional wedding with no cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss or a special exit. But this did not change the spirit of the event, in fact it gave more time for dancing and some more unforgettable and funny toasts.”

Beach Elopement Styled Shoot

Today’s event is actually a styled shoot inspired by all the fun one can have at the beach!  It took place in St. Petersburg, Florida and captured an elopement idea for two people who are clearly young at heart.

Stephanie A Smith Photography shared with us her idea behind the shoot.  “This styled, elopement wedding is the materialization of my dreams and schemes for the last 16 months. There are subtle, Boho, 70’s-chic elements throughout this classic, old Florida wedding.”

“Everything about this couple’s getaway celebrates the simple joy of being together, doing what they love most. That is the kind of destination wedding everyone should feel is possible. So I hope this inspires other unique, paradise-bound I do’s.”

Then after they captured the would-be ceremony setup, a dinner for two was designed underneath the trees.

A Beach Wedding in the Florida Keys

something blue ideas A Beach Wedding in the Florida Keys

Anailyn and Jesus invited friends and family to the small town of Islamorada, FL for their destination wedding at the Castaway’s Delight.  Photographer Anna Eli described this picturesque location for those who haven’t touched down there just yet.  “Islamorada is a small, but a very charming town. Once a person or a family’s there for a few hours, you know it like the back of your hand. From cafes to fishing grounds to hotels and restaurants, there’s plenty to see. It’s often overlooked because people either go to Miami or Key West, but Islamorada is right in between and has a lot to offer.”

Anailyn’s parents passed away when she was very young, so to pay tribute to them and keep them close, she carried a bridal bouquet adorning a locket with their photo in it.

A very hands on bride, Anailyn created this creative sign for guests to see where everyone had traveled from for the big day.  Such a great idea!

The ceremony took place on the sand in an isolated location with total privacy just for their very special group.
