A Beach Wedding Designed With Organic Elegance

I’m convinced Alys Beach is one of the prettiest places you can marry here in the states. A little gem tucked away on the Florida Panhandle, it’s backdrop to this charming wedding with must-see floral moments (hello, lush greenery!) designed by Myrtie Blue. No surprise, Lauren Kinsey captured in her signature fine art fashion and the film from Joshua Kidd is the cherry on top of this perfect cake.

5 Ways to Involve Pets in Your Wedding

Hands down, there’s nothing better than a sweet fur baby making an appearance on your Big Day. So if your best friend happens to be an adorable pooch (or cat, or bird, or pig…), we’re teaming up with The Westin Birmingham to run down a list of 5 ways to include your loves in the most important celebration of your life. Prepare for a cuteness overload below.

ONE: AS THE CUTEST BEST MAN OR MAID OF HONOR EVER

There’s nothing cuter than a pet in a bow tie or floral crown, so when it comes to stealing the show (they will), let your sweetie shine as your Best Man or Maid of Honor. You’ll love it, your guests will love it and it will most definitely go down in history as one of your fave wedding moments.

TWO: AS THE PERFECT FAVORS

Love your furry friend more than anything? Then be sure to pay tribute to them in every possible way. One of our faves? A cute little favor that also happens to be in the shape of their likeness. It’s taking “puppy treats” to an entirely new level and your guests will appreciate the ode to your sweet little pooch.

THREE: AS YOUR INVITATION SHOWPIECE

Want your fur baby to make a giant wedding statement? Then include them in your invitation suite, so your nearest and dearest know just where your heart is. It’s creative, unique and, let’s be honest, sooo darn cute. We’re totally on board with this.

And speaking of paper, why not include Fido on your escort cards? Whether you’re having a romantic soiree, a modern celebration or something else entirely, it’s a detail that will leave everyone talking. We promise.

FIVE: AS THE MOST ADORABLE RING BEARER IN THE WORLD

Your nephew is definitely a cutie, but you know what’s even cuter? Having that sweet little guy walk your adorable pooch down the aisle. It’s a double dose of sweetness that will make your entire day. We promise.

From the cutest Best Man ever to a yummy treat your guests will love, including your fave fur baby in the celebration of the century is a definite must.

Finding the Perfect Combination of Rustic and Elegant

This is what winter in Florida looks like; a.k.a. gorgeous and I promise I’m only a tiny bit jealous. With styling and planning by Fabulous Chic Weddings, stunning film photography by Emily Katharine and the perfect touch of rose gold, it all makes this rustic meets elegant celebration feel so, so luxurious.

Rustic

From Courtney of Fabulously Chic Weddings… The bride described how she wanted her wedding to look as “romantic, soft, classic, clean, rustic, and natural”. Ali wanted to accent the beautiful dusty blue shade with gold, rose gold, and the natural element of wood, for the perfect combination of rustic and sophistication. For the florals, the bride wanted mostly ivory flowers with hints of soft blue. We opted for greenery to tie into garden feel of the courtyard, and Queen Anne’s lace for a little more of the rustic feel. LaTavola’s Tuscany line was the perfect linen-like texture for the rustic look. The subtle blue shade “Ocean” brought the perfect blue-gray hue that didn’t look like a baby shower. With religion being such an important part of their lives, they opted to unite in front of an 8 foot tall wooden cross, accented with beautiful blue chiffon and garden florals. Although Ali wanted a beautiful wedding, at the end of the day, what was most important to her was how fun the day was. Ali and Brock opted to do a first look and family photos before the ceremony, which allowed them to enjoy the cocktail hour under the ambiance of the cafe lights and perfect Florida “winter” temperatures to the fullest. The detail the couple cared about the most was the donut bar. Bennet’s donuts are a favorite of the bride and groom’s. They were so excited to share the tasty treat, especially their favorite flavor, maple bacon, as a late night snack and favor for the guests to take home.

From Emily of Emily Katharine Photography… My favorite part of Ali & Brock’s wedding day was the first look. They opted to do something that most couples don’t to make this time even more unique. After their first look, they exchanged their wedding vows. They loved the idea that it was more intimate, and a way to make that commitment to each other with no other distractions. They both ended their vows with the same sentence, and after that, I lost it. It was a beautiful moment.
