From the beautiful Bride… Christopher and I first met in high school when we both signed up for the same summer course. We became friends, and later reconnected our freshman year at The University of Alabama. We often ran into each other around campus, and our friendship later blossomed into something more. We were soon inseparable, and began dating the second half of our sophomore year. After almost four years of dating, Christopher proposed in late June. He surprised me with an entire day spent doing all of my favorite things, and then took me for a sunset stroll in Seaside where he proposed on the beach. Afterwards, we celebrated with dinner at one of my all time favorite restaurants, Café Thirty-A.

Planning my wedding was something that I had looked forward to ever since I was a little girl. My parents even have my old photos from wedding magazines I used to save. I wanted my wedding to have a very timeless, romantic feel to it. I wanted to be able to look back through the pictures when it was all over and see something very elegant and classic. I envisioned soft, delicate champagnes and blushes, beautiful furniture and décor, and a sophisticated menu. It was also really important for me to add lots of personal details to make it my own.

When it came to choosing the location, we knew the beach would be the perfect setting. For both Christopher’s family and my own, the beach has always been a very special place. I remember right after we got engaged, my mother’s family was reminiscing over all of our wonderful memories at the beach, and I began thinking how memorable and special a wedding at the beach would be. We looked at several different venues, but after visiting Rosemary Beach, we knew we had found what we were looking for. Rosemary has such a beautiful, dreamy atmosphere, with gorgeous white houses and quaint cobblestone streets. Our ceremony took place in Rosemary’s Town Hall. It has such a beautiful, clean elegance to it with soft white walls, stone floors, and gorgeous wooden rafters with iron chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. It also has an adjoining courtyard that was the perfect spot for our reception!

From the beautiful Bride… When creating our wedding we imagined the day as romantic and relaxed. With the hustle and bustle of every day life, we wanted to create an intimate affair filled with our closest family and friends where the day just seemed to stop for a few hours. Mike and I rarely have time to just stop and celebrate our love, and that was most important to us when putting together our big day. We wanted this day to be a celebration of two old souls finally joining as one. With the help of our amazing planner, Miranda Hattie Events, and well over a year of planning we were able come up with a day beyond our wildest dreams. Throughout the celebration we used a palette of neutrals; white, ivory taupe and blush. We felt that these colors lent a timeless feel, while the imperfect floral arrangements and a variety of candles and tabletop accents added softness and warmth. The Mediterranean sensibility of Villa Woodbine was enhanced with soft, flickering light and a subtle variety of textures. We wanted the candlelight to reflect off the mercury and glass accent pieces to help set a romantic mood throughout the event. Rustic vintage touches, such as wooden farmhouse tables, vintage chairs, and antique cake stands helped add to the overall vibe we were going for.

Colorfully Elegant Casa Feliz Wedding

We’re always on the hunt for fresh new color combos here at SMP, and today’s Casa Feliz fete from Best Photography might just be one of my fave yet. The burgundy, navy and gold ‘maids mixed with pink, red and violet florals make for a soiree that’s bursting with happy hues—eclectic but complimentary, and oh-so-stunning. Make sure to dive into this vibrant day before you head off into the weekend and don’t miss the film from Black In White Films!

From Best PhotographyCasa Feliz has to be one of our favorite venues! From it’s gorgeous rustic old style architecture to the beautiful interior decor, it really is one heck of a place to get married. Everything about Chris and Ashton’s wedding was breathtaking! Between all of their hard work along with some incredible vendors, everything turned out perfect! Oh and let’s not forget all of the beautiful Anthropologie accessories Ashton incorporated! Chris and Ashton have a way of making everyone feel needed and loved, and those amazing qualities really shined on their big day.

From the beautiful Bride… Chris and I met while I worked for a non-profit. I was running our annual gala and Chris had volunteered to help through his company, AT&T. At the event, I asked if I could get a discount on my phone bill (which was not granted!). Chris sent an email the following day assuring me he still could not get me a discount but maybe he could take me to lunch instead. After a 2 hour lunch date, we knew something special was going to happen.

We spent endless hours of Pinterest-ing, blogging and magazine reading to come up with the overall concept for our wedding. We knew we wanted a theme that fit the beautiful venue space while also incorporating our favorite things. It was a special moment to share what we loved with who we loved.

The wine box at the ceremony was something we really loved. We both wrote a love letter to each other and sealed them inside a box with a bottle of wine. We were instructed only to open it on our first big fight and then drink the wine and read the letters to remember why we’re in this together.
We love food trucks so to have a cupcake truck at our wedding something fun for us – and our guests!

We loved Josh and Rachel’s photography style from the beginning! Having a team that understood the intricacy of the venue but were still able to capture the beauty of it was really great. There is a lot of stress that day but Josh and Rachel are seamlessly calm and patient – that was a HUGE help for all people involved.

To be surrounded by all the people we love was an unforgettable moment. We had such a great time – from the food to the dancing to the music to the food truck – it was so us.

Our advice to other couples—enjoy the ride. There were many times when we could have gotten stressed out about details but it was important to step back and see the big picture. We also recommend putting a cap on wedding talk – some dates deserve other topics. It’s good for your sanity! Also, ALWAYS ALWAYS hire a day-of coordinator. Worth every penny!

Form the beautiful Bride… The night I met Chaz I had no idea that he would be the man I would spend the rest of my life with. Fortunately he knew almost right away and pursued me from that day forward. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida and Chaz lived in Orlando, Florida. For roughly 4 months he drove to Jacksonville every weekend to see me. While we denied we were in a relationship for a long time, our family and friends knew better. I was always someone who never wanted to get married or have children. I was perfectly happy on my own and so was Chaz. But falling in love with him was the greatest adventure of my life. Charles is my game changer and will forever be the most wonderful surprise.

When we first got engaged, Chaz did not have a ring. He told me that he had cut a stone years ago (12 to be exact) and that he had always envisioned setting this stone for his future wife; however, he wanted to confirm that I did not have my heart set on a diamond. I was so incredibly happy that he proposed that I forgot a ring is typically involved. The fact that Charles had something so valuable and special to him all these years and decided I was worthy of receiving it took my breath away. A few months later I received my ring and it was well worth the wait! A one-carat alexandrite set in diamonds. I receive compliments all the time regarding how beautiful and unique my ring is and it just makes me smile. Charles has so many talents and gifts that this is just another example of one.

We were engaged for 2 years and while some thought that was a long time, it could not have been more perfect for us! Shortly after we got engaged we moved to Dallas, Texas and lived together for the first time.

From Jennifer Blair Photography… After becoming engaged, Taylor and Chase knew they both wanted an intimate celebration with their closet friends and family. Santa Rosa Beach was a natural choice, since both their families love to vacation there. Taylor loves meaningful details and infused that love into so many aspects of their day. Taylor’s Mom and family created the stunning family style table set up on the lawn adjacent to the beach. They filled the tables with Taylor’s favorite muted colored oysters (a nod to the seaside theme), a plethora of candles and handmade arrangements. Guest signed two boat oars that they will keep in their home. Even the officiant was Taylor and Chase’s good friend and Taylor’s old soccer coach.

Their love is so natural and they were both so joyful throughout the whole day. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed two people more thrilled to be joining their lives together. Everything about their day was beautiful, simplistic and focused on their sweet family and friends.

From the Bride… When Chase and I got engaged, a dear friend of ours told us that “Your wedding is the only time, this side of heaven, that everyone you love will be in one place.” With that in mind, we knew we wanted to do a destination wedding, where selfishly, we could truly savor every second.

Growing up, my family vacationed in the Santa Rosa Beach area each year. Some of my favorite memories are on that beach and now my favorite of all! Beginning Thursday, our friends and family took over a strip of 30-A and for all the times I have seen that beach, it has never looked sweeter than it did filled with those we love most. We welcomed guests with a Low Country Shrimp Boil on Thursday, held our wedding on Friday evening and spent Saturday at the beach with our guests.

In the beginning, above all, we knew that we wanted our wedding weekend to be laid-back and full of fun. We searched high and low for a venue that offered a seaside home with a lawn. We wanted a space that felt intimate but was large enough to accommodate our guests – The Highlands House offered just that. Being that the beach and venue were both so beautiful in their own rights, we chose a neutral palette to compliment the white sand beaches and seaside vibe of our reception venue.

At our rehearsal we laughed at the very idea of it because at best we hoped that everyone would simply make it down the aisle in some way. Our wedding party was disproportionate, included 14 children and my brother-in-law stood among my bridesmaids. One of our dearest family friends married us beneath a cross built by my dad, and the flowers were flown in and arranged by mom and her best friends.

The dresses didn’t match, but were rather hand-selected with love by seven women that I simply couldn’t live without. During the ceremony and the evening, babies ran around, danced and giggled and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. In the end, the sea air did a number on my hair and the dance floor but dancing with bare feet in a soaked gown with my new husband is one of my favorite memories of the day.

The small details, likely meaningless to others, were the most treasured to us. Both University of Kentucky alums, Chase gave his groomsmen UK cufflinks and the little boys each wore belts handmade in Lexington, Kentucky. We placed a “Thank You” note at each seat and every child received a box containing a headlamp, a pencil and list of items that were hidden for them to find throughout the night. For our reception, our guests enjoyed dinner brought in from our hometown and we chose family style seating as we regard everyone in attendance as such.

It’s true what we were told, October 10, 2014 was nothing less than a little slice of heaven. The day was filled with enough love and joy to last us a lifetime. We are so incredibly blessed by the people we get to do life alongside and we wouldn’t change one thing about the first day of the rest ours.

We are forever indebted to our families and friends who worked tirelessly, our guests who traveled far and wide, and to Jennifer Blair Photography for capturing the greatest day of our lives.

From The Bride…Josh and I met when we were just kids in our hometown church. It was not until we were teenagers that we decided to give dating a chance. Since then, the rest is history. We were even lucky enough to be married by the pastor that still continues to lead that same church and has known us from the beginning. We got married 9 years to the day after we began dating!

Josh proposed in November during our family vacation. We took an amazing trip that started in Chicago and ended in San Francisco. He carried “the ring” in planes, trains and automobiles. When we finally arrived to the Fairmont in foggy San Francisco, he could not wait any longer. Even though he planned a romantic outing, he popped the question in our hotel room within moments of arriving. But, it was so personal and could not have been more perfect for us.

While planning the wedding, I wanted to keep a clear vision that incorporated both our styles. We wanted to keep things timeless. My style tends to be more feminine, so Josh allowed me to also have some pretty touches throughout. We kept a fresh palette that did not interfere with the gorgeous location.

We were most looking forward to seeing all our family and friends together in one place. Because we chose such a special date that signified our commitment to each other over nine years ago, we were just excited to start our lives together with some beautiful memories.
