It’s Wedding Wednesday, lovelies – and you know what that means! A morning, noon and night of uber-fabulous inspiration is coming your way, all thanks to SEVEN drop-dead gorgeous fêtes and one gallery after another of some downright pretty. I’m talking glorious outdoor affairs, fab barn soirees and everything in between. So, clear those calendars, cozy on up and let’s get this party started, shall we?
How’s this for the perfect start to our day of lovely? A breathtaking Vero Beach affair boasting beautiful blooms from Thallo Floral Design, a to-die-for color palette (yellow and pink!) and two seriously adorable sweethearts that will warm your hearts from here to all eternity. Sounds fabulous, no? Well, if you can believe it, that’s just the beginning of this pretty party, because the gallery is chock-full of devastatingly gorgeous moments captured by the ever-amazing Vitalic Photo. Join us there for more.
From Vitalic Photo… Lindsay and Shaun were married May 19 at Orchid Island Beach Club in the most gorgeous setting. Not only are these two beautiful, but they are also kind, genuine and so very stylish. We walked into the suite where Lindsay was getting ready and squealed just a little when we saw all of her amazing accessories neatly organized on the bench at the foot of the bed. Shaun had to have been the cutest groom ever having been so involved in the planning process; his main goal was to make sure Lindsay was happy. How adorable are their two Shih Tzu puppies decked out in their wedding day tutus? They were even present at the cocktail hour, scurrying around the guests’ feet near the reflecting pools. One of our favorite features of Orchid Island is all of the gorgeous, vine-covered walls and breezeways … we could have been busy taking photos there for days. Three words to describe Lindsay and Shaun’s wedding day: stylish, organic, soft.
From Sara + Ann of Thallo Floral Design… The bride carried a traditional, Euro-style nosegay featuring dusty pink garden roses, peonies in white and blush, viburnum, billy balls, limoncello spray roses and dusty miller. The bride and groom both had one attendant, Lindsey’s being her sister, who wore cream lace. She carried a nosegay similar in style, but with more vibrant shades of pink and yellow. Lindsey’s mother carried a petite nosegay. Mercury glass accents, provided by the bride and her mom, accompanied the florals and lent an old-world, rustic glow to the atmosphere. Orchid Island is beautifully appointed on its own, and these flowers were so pretty in that setting. The dinner tables were trimmed with mercury glass votives and lush centerpieces in pedestal glass compotes. To us, a pedestal glass vase has the same effect on flowers as the perfect high-heel has on one’s legs — it elongates! Tables were covered in custom, white hemstitch linens, our favorite for summer weddings. The place cards were perched atop wheatgrass flats with the club’s reflecting pool as backdrop. Inside the dining room, table numbers mimicked the place card set-up, perched in wheatgrass-filled mercury glass pots.
