Florida Seaglass Styled Inspiration Shoot

This shoot has my name written all over it. The colors, the stunning seaside setting, the sublte but sophisticated details – it’s almost as though the talents behind this gorgeous inspiration knew the perfect recipe to make my heart sing. Dreamt up and captured by Debra Eby Photography, I think it goes without saying I adore every image sitting in this gallery.

From Debra Eby PhotographyInspiration for this shoot is drawn from the alluring beauty of the coast. Our team of artists designed with an intentional seaglass palette. Gilded accents compliment the hues of blue.

The setting is the sea. A background of gentle waves caressing the shoreline set against a watercolor sky. The ocean has a way of beckoning romance. Using Martha Stewart’s line of glass paint, tiny vases transform into seaglass. Now hosting dripping candlesticks on the tablescape.

There were several art projects that provided small details. For the table number, I transformed a wooden number into a mosaic by gluing pieces of seaglass onto it. The number was then glued on a glass picture frame.

Oyster shells were collected by the shoreline and then hand-painted gold. Meghan, our stylist, fashioned our tablescape using these pieces.

For the closing scene, I had this vision of romantic exploration. As the sun begins dipping over the horizon, our couple steps into the water. Here, they lift white lanterns lighting the dimming seascape.

Al Fresco Beach Club Wedding

Finding a wedding venue that checks off each and every box on your wedding wants list can prove challenging and this couple almost gave up finding the one until they stumbled upon Manasota Beach Club. A secluded beachfront spot with a canopy of trees and loads of charm made perfect at the hands of NK ProductionsElegant Designs and photographed by Cat Pennenga. See the full wedding weekend unfold right here.

Beach Club

From The Bride…We got engaged in a rain forest resort in Belize and were trying to recapture the magic of that location. We searched most of South West Florida trying to find the perfect venue: One where we would be the only wedding that weekend, a place where we could have rehearsal dinner, the ceremony and reception. A location where all our friends and family could stay for the weekend. We had almost given up when our fantastic wedding planner, Nicole Kaney suggested Manasota Beach Club. It had everything we were looking for and more. Rustic, old Florida charm, deserted beach, tree canopies, wild life and the privacy we desired. Our entire wedding weekend was a dream. There isn’t a single thing we would have done differently.

Sweet Sarasota Wedding at The Ringling Ca’ D’Zan Mansion

Lovely doesn’t even come close to describing this sweet Sarasota wedding beautifully captured by Divine Light Photography. Not even close. In fact, I’m not sure there is a single adjective that will do this beauty justice. Designed by MMD Events, this gallery is light-filled perfection. See even more here.


From the Bride and Groom…We met on e-Harmony. She was overcome with temptation when she saw he was taking ballroom dance lessons and has two hairless cats named Dudeman and Girlfriend. He was instantly intrigued by her picture on a standup paddle board requesting responses only from men with their head on straight. He skipped the prefabbed questionnaire, emailed her directly, and the rest is e-Harmony history.

We are a pretty carefree couple, not much into formalities, so we think it took friends and family by surprise that we chose the gorgeous Ringling Ca’ D’Zan as our venue. Most probably thought we’d elope. Our only criteria was to be outside, simple, and quaint. We love the outdoors. When we saw the Ca’ D’Zan, it was hard to consider any other place. The venue captured our free spirit…totally free within bounds. The Ca’ D’Zan is on the water, outside, classic, elegant, and needed nothing else to make it perfect. The ceremony was by the banyan trees and our party was out by the water, with a historic mansion as our backdrop. Not being the social butterfly of all couples, we opted for a sweetheart table (we skirted temptation to have the table roped off).

We really cannot take any credit for how our wedding turned out other than finding the venue, choosing a “wedding team” that we liked, and choosing light green and light pink as our colors. Spending a little bit of time with everyone on our wedding team went a long way. I think we were most passionate about taking pictures of our four cats (now a blended family) for our table centerpieces. We spent countless hours putting sticky numbers on them, chasing them down, and taking pictures. People who know us best appreciated that little touch. Our day was perfect and the way it was captured was perfect too.
