If seersucker and pretty frocks by Lilly Pulitzer are on your faves list then you are in the exact right place. Jemma Coleman Photography sent us a photo shoot inspired by Palm Beach and all things preppy with a pretty factor that is seriously through the roof. Add to that a color palette that has our hearts all a flutter and bright, scrumptious florals by Touch of Paradise and we have ourselves a Florida affair not to be forgotten. Be sure to stop by the gallery for a whole lot more!
From Jemma Coleman Photography…A fashionable & tropical inspiration shoot set in the breezy beach town of Jupiter, FL – the theme is “Palm Beach Prep”. We were inspired by the classic preppy style of the ivy-league-ers and Nantucket northerners that call this place home in the colder months and who have therefore rubbed off on all we Southerners over the years so that we’ve come to embrace their style and sense of living and incorporate it into our own.
Starting with oh-so-preppy blue striped seersucker linens and white hemstitch napkins as a classic preppy base from Atlas Party Rentals, we added tropical & local florals by Touch of Paradise, bamboo furniture & napkin rings, traditional china, and delectable foods reminiscent of the northeast by Rockstar Catering. Rope silverware represents our connection to the ocean & sailing. Our delicious signature drink – aptly named the Nantucket Red featured southern grown blueberries and watermelon.
For attire, our priority was traditional preppy style with seaside flair! The groom wore Nantucket Red Polo Ralph Lauren trousers, a smart white shirt & vest from Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers bow tie (with adorable sea creatures!), and Johnston & Murphy deer-hide oxfords & belt. The bride modeled a gorgeous Amsale ballgown provided by Boca Raton Bridal, complete with useful pockets for a wonderfully classic look. The bridesmaids were decked out in Lilly Pulitzer (the original Palm Beach Prep!) dresses and shoes with eye-catching jewelry from fabulous Etsy artists. All three ladies had their hair “prepped” by amazing local hair stylist, Erin Frazee. Our adorable doggy modeled a Vineyard Vines leash and a collar by Etsy artist, Pecan Pie Puppies.
For dessert, our pastry chef, The Sugar Monkey, pulled off the most adorable assortment of treats and cookies featuring starfish & beautiful flowers made from sugar. The cake was a simple yet elegant piece of art bringing the theme inspiration together perfectly. We had an amazing paper suite designed for us by Make Merry featuring stripes and a coral motif all wrapped up in a bamboo paper belt and starfish to set it all off.
