I get so excited talking about our wedding!  Ever since the new TPC Sawgrass clubhouse opened in 2005, I knew that's where David and I would get married. It is so strikingly beautiful plus we love to watch golf together and we go to The Players tournament every year and always have the best time!

My inspiration for our colors, design and flowers was "Preppy Chic." I loved the look of the coral against black and white grosgrain ribbon. As soon as I saw the "tea rose" color Emily dress at J.Crew ~ I knew it was perfect and my styling was coming together! As a little surprise to us, as soon as I chose those dresses, they went on sale and most sizes were already sold out. I had a small bridal breakdown but my super Maid of Honor came to the rescue and called the headquarters to secure dresses for my girls.

Next came the flowers. I really wanted to have color "pop!" against my cream wedding dress so giant coral peonies were my first choice! They ended up not being available so we used large garden roses instead- equally beautiful. Our florist tied in the theme with a beautiful black and white striped ribbon to tie it up. I also instantly knew that I wanted the bridesmaids to carry white French anemones. The white bloom with the large black center looked so sharp and chic!

We continued the color scheme for the outdoor reception with giant coral carnation balls at the alter which was covered with white and tied back in the black and white stripe ribbons on either side. Down the aisle were coral pomanders hanging on the chairs. One of my favorite touches were the black and white chair ties that were tied on the back of every chair on the back row to blow in the wind and add some pizzaz!

While guests were being seated and waiting for the ceremony to begin, waiters passed out cold water and Arnold Palmers to keep everyone comfortable. Then after the ceremony, as we ventured inside to the cocktail reception, we had the waiters pass "Scotty Mac's World Famous" drinks which were decorated with a golf tee cocktail stirrer. This was a surprise to my dad since he is known for his "world famous" (as he calls it) drink.

Inside the reception room, I abandoned the preppy chic look for an elegant candlelit palette of champagne, ivory and white. It was a nice transition into the evening where we had a stationed dinner and danced all night to the music from The Faze Band.

As the evening came to a close, we were ushered out of the clubhouse among all of our friends and family with sparklers to a waiting golf cart with a beautifully handwritten sign that read, "Happily Ever After."

It was a fairy-tail wedding and I couldn't have imagined anything more "me."
