From Eva Williams Clark of Belle of the Ball… Lauren and Michael’s love story began at Auburn University when mutual friends introduced them. The emerald coast of Florida was so much a part of Lauren’s upbringing that it only seemed fitting for it to serve as the backdrop for her wedding. The reception venue was only steps away from their family vacation home so she felt right at home on her wedding day. It was important to the bride that elements of the coast were incorporated without it coming off too ‘beachy’. Pops of green and white floral added a distinctly beautiful freshness to the modern rustic venue!
Can I just start by saying I think this little babe’s face perfectly sums up all the feelings when any weekend comes to a close. So if you’ve got a case of the Monday morning grumps, fear not because this wedding is chock-full of pretty seaside dreaminess to turn your mood right around. Photographed by Jennifer Blair and filmed by Whits End Films, I’m betting The Vault will become your new designated happy place.
From Jennifer Blair Photography… Matt & Alex have had quite the journey to get to their wedding day. After meeting in Chicago they had secret crushes on each other and friends for over a year. Not long after they made things official, Alex was transferred to New York but moved to Denver to be together.
Since Alex’s family lives in Dallas and Matt’s in Denver, they decided to go for an intimate destination wedding with their closest friends and family. The 30a area has a special meaning to them since Alex’s family lived there for a time as she grew up.The design they chose for the whole day was elegantly simplistic.
Alex’s Vera Wang gown was an incredible choice for a beach wedding. Even the delicate lace detailing on the cap sleeves mimics the natural vegetation around the area the the greenery used in the bouquets. The palette of seafoam blues and greens was found everywhere from the Rosemary beach location to Alex’s getting ready robe.
The highlight of the day was the family-style reception under twinkling string lights as the sun set along the sea’s horizon. The stunningly simple cake was highlighted by an oyster-shell chandelier that hung above, which also complimented the oyster table runners on the reception tables.Alex & Matt have the sweetest love and they truly deserved to be celebrated the way they were that gorgeous, September night.
To say that we LOVE us some Lauren Kinsey would be a massive understatement. Because not only is that girl talented beyond measure, but she’s also super fun to be around. Just as Noel & Felicia, for before jetting off across the world to marry, they spent an afternoon with one of our fave photos. A sweet e-session on the beautiful beaches near WaterColor Inn & Resort, see it all waiting in THE VAULT!

From Lauren Kinsey…Noel & Felicia are celebrating their wedding in Asia and before they jetted off across the world, we spent an afternoon together photographing a sweet couple’s session for them on the beautiful beaches near Watercolor, Florida. Felicia custom created gown was so perfect for her in every way, and I loved getting to know this couple and their genuine love and affection for each other.
