Beach Wedding at the Ocean Reef Club

Give me a tropical beach wedding and I’m one happy lady. It might be the sky-high palms, the pup in pearls or the beachy-white bouquets from Parrish Designs that have reeled me into this seaside soiree from Binary Flips, but as one pretty package, this breezy romance has hit the spot. See sooo much more in the gallery!

From Binary Flips… Weddings by the beach will always have a place in our hearts. We were almost at a loss for words when we first saw the breathtaking venue. The color palette that Ashley picked for her day perfectly matched the club’s tropical setting. They exchanged vows on the ‘ceremony island’ with an almost endless ocean view. Ashley looked stunning in her Monique Lhuillier as she walked down the isle that is perfectly lined by towering palm trees. As the sun settled, everyone was treated with a gorgeous early moonlight backdrop. Everybody wished it never ended, but nevertheless it was the perfect way to remember it.

Coral & Aqua Whimsical Garden Wedding

My favorite kind of couples are the ones who don’t take themselves too seriously. The couples who opt for a wedding of whimsy and color, and make their special day one epic party. It’s exactly the approach Eric and Sarah took for their Florida garden nuptials, and thanks to the fabulous Miranda Hattie Events, it went off without a hitch. SMPers, your Monday pick-me-up a la Daniel Lateulade starts here!

Whimsical

From the Groom… At first, Sarah and I had a picture of a crafty, casual, Kinfolk-style wedding, but as we went through the planning process, the “guest experience” became more and more important. Our biggest concern was that the wedding felt devoid of pretense, not stuffy or overly formal, but rather casual, simple, and easy. We wanted our guests to feel like guests, like they were getting a weekend away with friends. Everything from the decor to the experience design stemmed from this idea of ease. We hope it was successful too, making something feel easy actually takes a lot of work!

Sarah and I spent most of the cocktail hour and dinner trying to spend a few minutes with every single person that made it to our wedding, so naturally both of those stages of the evening vanished in a blink of an eye. Right around 10pm, our guests were invited from the dinner area to the terrace for deserts, coffee, and dancing, and we hadn’t had a chance to sit or eat the entire evening. As the pavilion emptied out, our table of 12 stayed behind and in the middle of the chaos that is a wedding, we had this very intimate, calming 30 minutes to eat, drink and laugh with with some of our most cherished friends.

Italian-Inspired Baby Shower at Villa Woodbine

You simply can’t ask an event planner to keep her hands off her own special occasion, and that’s perfectly all right with us- because the result is a baby shower from JCG Events so beautiful it could rival any wedding! The Masis gathered inspiration from their trip to Tuscany and designed the shower around a luscious Italian brunch. With stunning photos from Katie Lopez, you’ll want to pore over every detail of this drool-worthy baby shower!


From Jessica Masi of JCG Events: I know it’s unconventional to plan your own baby shower but when you are a planner yourself and in the industry you can’t help but have a style and vision for what you want. This was an event close to my heart because I wanted to make sure to celebrate the arrival of our baby girl, and this next phase in our lives, with our closest family and friends.

Lucky for me, my husband is also a planner, we’re co-owners of JCG Events. As I was beginning the planning process he was secretly working on securing my favorite venue in Miami, Villa Woodbine. He wanted to surprise me with everything but soon had to reveal the details because I was busy starting the planning process as well, and it wouldn’t be too long before we would have two showers planned.

Villa Woodbine was the perfect setting for our baby shower. We wanted to create an Italian themed shower to go with the villa setting but at the same time keep the theme subtle and well thought out. It all started with the invitations we designed through Smock, an invitation line we carry. We selected a whimsical font in a taupe letterpress ink and a baby carriage motif and added a pop of color with a neon pink edging. For the calligraphy we chose a matching hot pink ink and collected an array of vintage postage stamps including an Audrey Hebpurn stamp to reference the name we had selected for our baby girl.

The flower table design was a garden inspired design with a vintage collection of vases with bright pink bungavillia, garden roses and peonies with orange touches, over a custom lace table runner. Ines Naftali truly captured our vision and inspiration for the floral design and created a magical setting. The farmhouse tables and collection of white vintage chairs from Unearthed Vintage completed the entire look. On the fireplace mantle behind where “mommy” and “daddy” were sitting, we had two photos of when Michael and I were of similar age about 6 months old. In between the two photos was a small frame in the middle with a pink question mark. In the foyer there were vintage lounge vignettes for everyone to have an area to lounge before and after our brunch.

The brunch menu was inspired by an Italian breakfast we had every morning during while we were in Tuscany for a wedding we were planning last year. The cake was Michael’s favorite flavor- banana cake with salted caramel filling. The bar consisted of a signature drink we named the “Bambina Bellini” which was a take on a traditional venetian cocktail- prosecco, peach nectar and St. Germain. There was also mimosas and Masi white wine available garnished with fresh fruit. After brunch guests mingled in the courtyard where we had a gelato cart with three delicious flavors- pistachio, cappuccino with toffee bites and sweet pear with ginger.

We had a table with a guest book where guests were able to share their wishes and hopes for Audrey, which will be a nice keepsake for her to read later on in life. We also created a station where guests were able to make custom headbands for our baby girl and had stamped tags so they would be able to write their names so Audrey would know who made them. We were able to enjoy our baby shower thoroughly and it was really thanks to this amazing team of vendors that we are lucky to call friends as well.
