You know it's going to be a good day when a lovely wedding like this Gulf Coast soiree pops up on your computer screen. It's what I call an absolute guarantee. And when that lovely wedding happens to be a blue and white love-fest held at the Seaside Interfaith Chapel followed by an al fresco reception complete with lawn games (my fave), it's pretty much the best day of the week. Something Pretty Photography captured every gorgeous moment and it's all just waiting to be adored in the full gallery. Join me there for sooo much more.
From Something Pretty Photography... Raven and Stuart both live in Atlanta but wanted a more intimate, destination wedding. They decided to get married in Seaside, Florida, which couldn't be a more beautiful charming place to get married. The mix of the beach and the aquatic regal theme of the wedding made for a truly beautiful, unique day. The church over in Seaside is a simple white church that is filled with light and was a gorgeous place for the ceremony. For the reception, there were lots of sofas, cozy chairs and blankets for people to mingle on, and they even brought her grandmother's couch down that they had reupholstered for the wedding. They had a crest made, which was printed on many of the paper goods, as well as sea creatures with crowns, tridents, and other regalia. Blue and white china that her mother had collected for years was used for table settings and mixed with orchids and greenery around the reception area. There were parlor games out on the lawn, and the food was one the best spreads that I have ever seen, featuring tons of fresh seafood, shrimp and oysters. There was a simple but elegant lemon cake and an awesome groom's cake that was a button up dress shirt. The day was perfect, and it really was a beautiful, elegant and relaxed wedding that we were truly thrilled to be part of.
