A Modern Minimalist Oceanside Wedding

Lucy and Jim wanted the exotic feel of a destination wedding but the comfort and convenience of a wedding close to home. Alys Beach, Florida served as the perfect middle ground and their stunning modern venue totally delivered. From the invitations by Amanda Day Rose to the custom monogram carried throughout, no detail went untouched and Eb Photography + Artistry captured every last bit.

From the photographer, Elizabeth Bacon… This mid-November destination wedding took place at the stunning Alys Beach, located in the panhandle of Florida on 30A. They were giddy to gather 70 close friends and family members for a wedding weekend celebration no one will soon forget. All of the white, simple, crisp architecture and chic, classic styling plus the stunning and vibrant wedding party made for an excellent combo. Lucy and Jim have impeccable taste and their whole wedding weekend highlighted their intentionality and attention to detail.

From the Bride… Jim and I are high-school sweethearts. We both grew up in Brentwood, Tennessee, a small town right outside of Nashville. Alys Beach, Florida was the perfect choice for our small destination wedding. Jim studied architecture in Rome and I grew up sailing around the Greek Islands. Alys Beach has both Greek and Italian architectural themes but also the coziness of a small town. We wanted the feel of an exotic destination wedding with the comforts and familiarity of home. We held our wedding at the end of November with our closest friends and family who have watched and been a part of our relationship for nearly seven years.

All the Inspiration You’ll Ever Need for Your Vow Renewal

You know what’s better than saying “I do?” Saying it again. And if you’re looking for inspiration for your very own vow renewal, Simply Sarah Photography is delivering it in epic proportions with this stunning Alys Beach shoot featuring some of the sweetest details ever. It’s a talented team of vendors (hello, Molly Mckinley, Lindsay Coletta and Fig and Flourish) all coming together to show you just how awesome tying the knot is… twice. See it all in THE VAULT right here.

From Molly Mckinley This vow renewal was inspired by the crisp lines and classic colors of Alys Beach and the way it contrasted with the darling couple’s soft style – the bride’s chiffon dress and large lush bouquet and groom’s pale blue jacket. Blush, green, and ivory florals accentuated the already lovely architecture, while softening the overall feel.

These images tell the story of a young couple who after one year of marriage, decided to escape to Alys Beach, Florida to celebrate their love with a small vow renewal. While walking through the beautiful courtyards of Alys, they reminisced on the last year together. They stumbled upon vintage postcards in a local boutique and addressed them to their loved ones back home. At the end of the day, they shared a picnic and a few glasses of Rosé, then disappeared up the stairs of their cottage for the week.  See more from Simply Sarah Photography here

From the Bride… Putting the details of our wedding day into a few short paragraphs seems like such a daunting task. A day that took months and months of planning and the help of countless people could never fully be captured. Thankfully the photos convey the details so beautifully. Here were some of my favorites…

The floral arrangements encased in lucite. It all started with an image I saw years ago from the Jil Sander A/W 2012 fashion show that featured various multi-colored floral arrangements encased in lucite cubes. I couldn’t get the idea out of my head ever since I first saw it and knew that I wanted something similar at my someday wedding. As a lover of all color, I never wanted to have one singular wedding “color”, but rather have an overall color “vibe” of pastels with pops of brighter, warm colors. Events by Nouveau was able to recreate these and create the most breathtaking displays that I wish could live in my home forever.

My wedding dress. I had always known that I wanted a more “ethereal” look in a wedding gown as I am not one for “poofy” dresses or anything strapless. The Monique Lhuillier gown felt as if it was made for me. Joan Pillow in Houston was able to work with the designer to customize the dress and add a little bit more of a “sleeve” to the dress. Made out of layers of Spanish tulle, the dress was perfectly airy for the beach and the sprinklings of delicate beading below layers of the tulle reminded me of the beach.

The little things. Wearing my great grandmother’s aquamarine bracelet as my “something blue” and my mom’s diamond, drop earrings as my something borrowed. Carrying a boquet of Lillies of the Valley just as my mom and grandmother did on their wedding days. The ring bearer pillow, lovingly needle pointed by our mama of the crest by Bunny and Bear Paper that was on our save the dates. The neon sign that my husband proposed with that was hung behind one of the bars on a background of boxwood.

All in all, our wedding was the most magical night and more amazing than I had ever dreamed it would be. It was so unbelievably special to see all of the details and planning come together and it truly was a night, and weekend, that we will never forget.
