Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Wedding from Vitalic Photo

Perfectly elegant with a touch of glamour, this seaside soiree captured by Vitalic Photo is just as pretty as they come. With soft pinks complimenting the naturally gorgeous Florida surroundings and sweet touches that will stand the test of time – it’s a wedding that is perfect now, and will be perfect 100 years from now. See all the reasons why right here.


From Vitalic Photo… Jenna and Derek were surrounded by their many friends and family at the exclusive Sea Ranch Beach Club in Launderdale-by-the-Sea.  Their ceremony took place on the lawn overlooking the peaceful ocean, a single palm tree and a pretty flower covered alter for them to share their vows.  I loved how Jenna’s vision of a soft and elegant coastal wedding with shiny gold accents came together at their tented reception on the beach.

Filled with the most fabulous details, you’re guaranteed to find inspiration in each and every image.  Click here for the full gallery!

From Melissa Tuck PhotographyThe overall style: Glitz, glamour, gorgeous!  Seriously, my jaw dropped several times while photographing this wedding.  

Donna and Chris got married at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Chris and I are cousins, and I was so honored/thrilled/happy/PUMPED when Donna asked me to shoot their wedding. I love Chris and his family, but over the course of planning the wedding, I got the chance to know Donna and her family better, and they are just THE SWEETEST! Chris, you caught yourself such a caring, beautiful woman. I’m so, SO happy for y’all.

The day went flawlessly, thanks in huge part to Lori Kelly. Y’all, this lady knows what she is doing! The details at this wedding were jaw-dropping. Literally… I think I found my mouth open in amazement pretty much the entire day. I loved the navy blue suits that the groomsmen wore and the elegance of the bridesmaids’ dresses. And Donna has killer style, so of course she looked STUNNING. I could go on and on and on (about the cake, the candy bar, the florals…)

Davie Backyard Wedding from FCN Photography

Filling your Big Day with personality and sentimentality is what it’s all about – and for this darling Davie duo hosting their wedding in the paradise otherwise known as the bride’s grandparents’ backyard and tackling one DIY detail after another truly made it their own.  Add to all of that lovely some perfectly imperfect florals from Field Of Flowers, a gallery of amazing images from FCN Photography and a dress that will take your breath away (literally) and you are about to fall head over heels in love. Immediately.  See it all here.

From FCN Photography… My grandmother offered us her home and I couldn’t have had a more beautiful wedding.  There are even some photos we took while getting ready in my grandparents’ bedroom where it looks like robes are in some of the photos. I can’t help but feel it was my grandfather letting me know he was with me that day.

Having the wedding at my grandparents’ house meant a TON of DIY. Everything, other than the food and some additional items, was handmade by my family and all the calligraphy was done by my husband. Even the beer opening station. We took some moonshine from good old NC and it was delicious! I wish we had more to take home.

I used and old locket with pictures of my three grandparents who had passed away as my something old. It was important to me to have something with me that represented my grandfather. I know that he was present that day and watching over his family having the time of their lives.  I had a ring custom made for my right hand by Elizabeth Street Jewelry in NY for my something new. A favorite part of it was the jeweler added Finn’s (my son) birthstone into the inside setting of the ring. It was my way of keeping him close to me all night.  The teacups on my sign-in table that were in my parent’s wedding and my grandfather’s truck were my something borrowed. The truck is a 1929 Ford, and it’s amazing. This truck was the inspiration for my wedding.

There was just something about my daddy walking me down the aisle that, whew, made me melt!  Once I was outside I was also in awe, the house was AMAZING, my wildest dreams came true. You know that Pinterest quote that says “I hope my real wedding is as good as my Pinterest wedding”?  Well, my real wedding crushed my Pinterest wedding!
