We Found the Perfect Palette for a Beach Wedding

Calling all beach brides! If you’re looking for the perfect palette to complement a seaside fête, today is your lucky day. This romantic Florida wedding at The Bellamy of 30A brought in soft blues and greys in the bridesmaids’ dresses which picked up the cool tones of the water and a subtle, pinkish hue in the bride’s Leanne Marshall gown which picked up the warm tones of the sand and sun. The result is pure color palette magic, captured by Mint Photography with assistance from Claire Casner Photography.

From Mint PhotographyThere are so many aspects to this wedding that made it one of my very favorites of all time. First off, Seaside in 30A is perhaps one of the most charming beach cities I’ve ever visited. If you haven’t been, it’s a must! It set the perfect backdrop for an intimate, yet unique wedding location. We had incredible weather this weekend, and the pastel color palette was a perfect touch for a beach wedding. The bride wore a stunning Leanne Marshall gown, which flowed beautifully on the beach. Their precious golden retriever, Romeo, even made a special appearance at their nuptials. The party continued on at The Bellamy, where guests enjoyed food, drinks, and dancing under the moonlight. Audree and Dan are also one of the sweetest, most easy going and head-over-heels in love couples we have worked with. It was such a pleasure documenting this gorgeous destination celebration!

The Cutest Little White Chapel Wedding With Big Style Moments

The bride’s two favorite crafted moments of her wedding day are the very details that left me speechless. I’m talking about the stationery suite by Momental Designs and that floral chandelier the pros at Florals by the Sea designed to perfection. But then of course, there’s the gown from Little White Dress, and every other pretty second captured by the amazing Lauren Kinsey. More inspiration right this way.

From The Bride…My husband proposed to me in Seaside, Florida, our favorite place in the entire world. The southern charm, white sands, and laid back lifestyle are home to us. It was easy for us to decide where we would get married.

We wanted our wedding to be laid-back, true with the Seaside Way. I had a palette in mind of grey (Adam’s favorite color), dusty blue, blush, cream, and gold. This came to life in the flowers, decor, bridesmaids dresses, paper goods, and the groomsmen bowties. The style vision was casual but elegant and a little bit boho. Nothing overtly beachy, but nothing that felt stuffy or formal.We wanted personal touches, such as our family wedding photos from multiple generations and little blush drink stirs in the shape of Mickey since Adam loves disney. DIY details such as the drink stirs, gold sugar rims around the champagne glasses, customized monogrammed pillows, picture frames of Adam and myself and our family, made the decor personal.

I had two favorite crafted details. One was the floral chandelier made by Florals by the Sea and the other was our wedding programs made my momental designs. The floral chandelier was unlike anything I had ever seen, it was unique with tea lights hanging in delicate glass. Every guest had to sneak a picture. Our program was perfect in every way – complete with a sketch of chapel, and a gold tassel.

My dress was the second dress I tried on, a combination of two dresses, making it completely unique. We purchased the dress first thing after we got engaged, in a shop in Denver. The designer Reem Acra had always been a dream designer of mine.

Our day was unforgettable. We started the day getting ready, bridesmaids had hair and make up in elegance cottage located in the heart of Seaside, complete with mimosa’s and chicken salad sandwiches. The groomsmen slept in, (lucky them) and helped each other tie their bow ties. They also played more than one round of beer pong in the courtyard of Natchez cottage, a seaside icon, a short walk from the chapel where we would get married.

I had my great grandmother’s handkerchief with me for good luck.

Adam and I had our first look outside of Seaside Chapel, where we saw each other for the first time on our wedding day. It was a dream come true getting married in the Seaside Chapel, the crisp white wood walls, and cross made out of sand and seashells I have known my whole life. My family and I attended many Sunday church visits to this chapel. The laid back, simple atmosphere of the church was reflective of Adam and myself.

We took pictures with our family, and then it came time to walk down the aisle.

Our song “Make you Feel My love” played on the violin as I walked with my dad to see Adam. My cousin read our favorite poem, I carry your heart by EE Cummings, and Adam’s good friend Austin married us, with sweet words, personal anecdotes, and prayers. After a short and sweet 20 minute ceremony (we wanted to get to the party!) we exited the chapel as our friends threw pastel pink petals. Our golf cart awaited us come with a “just married in seaside!” hand written sign.

Florals By The Sea decorated the reception space to perfection. I work as a buyer in home decor, so I was a very particular bride when it came to the decor. Florals By The Sea made all of our dreams come true. Better than I could have even imagined. Marja created a “lounge” under a clear top tent that was perfect for a break between dancing and for our cocktail hour.

Adam’s favorite part of the decor was the whiskey and cigar bar. We have a tradition in my family (originally from Ohio) that during every Ohio State game, for initiation into our tailgate group, you have to take a shot of Jack Daniels and chase it with a powdered sugar donut (silly I know!). We made sure to have powdered donuts on the whiskey bar.

One of our favorite parts of the evening was getting to sneak away with our photographer Lauren to take pictures on the beach during sunset. It was the first time we had been alone as husband and wife. The evening was perfect and the breeze cooled us down (it was 88 degrees and humid all day!).

On our way back from the beach, we stopped at my family’s cottage, named “costal cutie” (the one with the green door!).

We ended the night with dancing, dancing, and more dancing. Our DJ rated our crowd a “10!” on the fun scale. We were whisked away at the end of the night in a Packard convertible, headed to our after party at the groomsmen’s cottage.

It was memorial day weekend so our guests were able to enjoy themselves and stay awhile. Our guests came from NYC, Boston, Columbus Ohio, Texas, Denver, Chicago, and more! We spent the weekend with everyone we love, celebrating our love. A bonfire on the beach and our shrimp boil rehearsal dinner were two highlights of the weekend other than wedding day.

Our goal was to be relaxed, enjoy the beach, share our love with our friends.

We want our guests to know how appreciative we are that they made the trip to celebrate with us and how thrilled we are with each and every vendor that shared their talent and expertise.

My one piece of advice to brides – Have a long engagement! Enjoy the time with your fiance, planning with your family, and getting to know your vendors. It all goes by so fast! Take time to soak it all in and enjoy.

Seaside, Florida Sunset Engagement

Lauren and Stephen claim to be complete opposites, but in this stunning engagement session they’re in perfect in sync. We love it when a couple’s smiles jump off the page! Thanks to Lauren Kinsey’s beautiful photography we can share in this couple’s laughter and joy right along with them. Enjoy more of the fun in the full gallery here!


From Lauren Kinsey: Authentic…The only word that comes to mind when I think of this sweet couple. Lauren and Stephen are self described “opposites”, but they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. They kept me laughing throughout our entire session and their smiles are contagious. Love radiates through these images and proves that laughter really is the key to a happy marriage.

Elegant Beach Wedding in Seaside, Florida

While we celebrate all sorts of styles and wedding personalities here at SMP, if we’re being honest…we fall the hardest for affairs that pay homage to the classics. Tradition with a hint of sparkle. Black tie with a glittery twist. And this wedding – photographed by Lauren Kinsey – is that, and so much more. Take a look here in the galleries too!

From Lauren Kinsey Fine Art Wedding PhotographyKelsey & Andrew are absolutely adorable together, and I loved photographing this beautiful wedding at Seaside, Florida.

Kelsey & Andrew moved to Japan almost immediately after the wedding, where Kelsey works as an English teacher for seventy five students from ages zero to thirteen in Tokushima, Japan.

From The Bride…Andrew and I went to the same Middle School, and most likely met in one of the classes we had together, though honestly we do not remember the first time we met each other. We love to go on long walks at night, so during one of our many walks, he stopped in front of a lake and told me to admire “how beautiful it was.” After that, he got down on one knee and proposed to me with a ring I had said I liked the most when we went ring “window-shopping” together around a month prior. I was so surprised and overjoyed! For the remainder of the walk I couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face!

We have a tradition of going to Seaside, Florida together every summer, so we thought a destination beach wedding would be the perfect venue to allow for maximum relaxation after the wedding, as well as would make a nice, nostalgic backdrop for our special day.

The thing I looked forward to the most was seeing my husband’s reaction to my dress! (And his reaction didn’t disappoint me; he was so moved that he cried!). I loved seeing my husband all done up and looking his best, I loved how our families and friends came together and were in such a good mood, I loved seeing all of our family members “get down” at the wedding after party and show us some of their best dance moves, I loved how random people cheered for us when they saw us make the walk back to our beach house together in our wedding attire, and I loved how the whole day seemed like a dream.

Sophisticated Beachfront Wedding Film

Weddings truly are the joining of two lives: family, friends, hometowns, dish ware (just kidding..kind of). This beachfront wedding in represents that confluence beautifully, with all the charms of the south and the sophistication of New York to fit the bride and groom’s backgrounds. Ashley Poole took some lovely pictures and The Film Poets compiled this cute-as-can-be film of their special day and all of its lovey-dovey glory.

From The Film PoetsThis was a winter wedding in Seaside, FL with perfect weather. The bride’s family came in from New York and gave the most wonderful speeches (all in the video). The photo session took place right after the ceremony and was timed perfectly for sunset.

Seaside, Florida Wedding from Lauren Kinsey

I’m not an over-the-top kind of girl. I like simple and modern and chic. Elegance, but not overdone. So when Lauren Kinsey sent over this seaside beauty that checked every love off my list, it quickly became my favorite nautical wedding Off. All. Time. It graced the pages of our Fashion & Beauty e-mag, but today we’re going in a little deeper; poring through every moment of what I deem knot tying perfection. I could easily stare at this mint shaded lovely all day long, and I’m pretty darn certain you’ll feel the same.

From Lauren Kinsey… I am not quite sure I could ever accurately describe how much this sweet couple means to me. From the very first moment I spoke to Brittany, we just had this kismet kind of bond that neither one of us could explain. If I had a sister, I would imagine her to be someone like Brittany. She is one of the kindest and gentlest people I know.

I loved every aspect of this wedding. Brittany is a graphic designer, so she knew exactly how she wanted her wedding to look and feel. Before the ceremony, Chris and Brittany opted to have a first look to get in some extra special portraits prior to the ceremony. Surrounded by only close friends and family, Brittany and Chris were married in the tiny Seaside Interfaith Chapel. Brittany’s sister played guitar during their devotion, and Brittany and Chris’ youth pastor performed the exchange of vows.

The color palette for the wedding was seafoam green, navy, aquamarine, and ivory. Brittany wanted to keep the florals classic and simple, opting to have lush white hydrangeas to lend to the modern/feminine feel of the wedding. Many details were DIY by Brittany. The reception was set under the quaint oaks on the Ruskin Lawn in Seaside, just steps from the Chapel, where cafe lights gave a romantic glow to the family style tables. Dinner consisted of a build your own taco and burrito bar- inspired by Chris and Brittany’s favorite food and home state of Texas! Brittany also surprised Chris by singing him her version of Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am”, which she had learned on the ukelele only days before.

Seaside Wedding Film from Sixpence Productions

I’m a sucker for a good highlight film, which I always, always get from Sixpence Productions. But when said film takes place in such a beautiful locale with a couple who couldn’t be any cuter and a wedding that is absolutely breathtaking from Savoir Faire Weddings, I can’t help myself. I fall in love and I fall hard.

The love birds. Jonathan and Logan met in College at Baylor University. They hung out in the same crowd (they were actually dating each other’s friends… shhh!) and always somehow seemed to be drawn to each other in a room. They stayed friends for a while until one day it became something more. They dated for four years until Jonathan popped the question. He took her to dinner on her birthday and when the waiter brought out dessert, it was a ring in the middle of strawberries with “Will you marry me?” written in chocolate. She cried and said “YES!.” They then went back to her parent’s house where family and friends surprised her.

The location. Logan grew up going to Seaside, Florida. Her great aunt has a house in Seaside and once Logan and Jonathan started dating, they visited every summer and he fell in love with it too. Once Jonathan proposed, Seaside was a natural decision for them. Logan grew up riding her bike past the Seaside chapel and thinking about how beautiful it was. She never knew that one day she would be a bride walking out of that chapel. V Seagrove was a suggestion by Logan’s great aunt that fit perfectly with their vision. It is a beautiful glass restaurant, facing the ocean. What could be more perfect?

The inspiration. The bridesmaid’s dresses ended up being the inspiration for their wedding, aside from the many nights on pinterest, wedding blogs, etc. Logan chose a beautiful chiffon, floor length dress and she couldn’t imagine it in any other color than blush! The rest of the wedding followed. Logan’s mom and sisters helped with the planning and her great aunt and grandma made decorations and kept us on track. Logan’s cousins made the invitations and their “logo”. It ended really bringing the family closer together.

A few special touches. The rehearsal dinner was at Logan’s great aunt & great uncle’s house off Seaside Avenue, everyone that came down for the wedding was invited. On the wedding day, Logan wore her grandmother’s pearl earrings, the lace handkerchief her Aunt Martha gave her, and a cutting of her mother’s wedding dress around her bouquet. Jonathan’s dad married the couple, he says it was one of the greatest honors in his life. Jonathan had a best man and four “groomsmaids,” which were his sisters. The couple decided to write their own vows, and were obviously very nervous because they dropped the rings… twice! Logan’s sister Chelsea sang Etta James’ “At Last” while the couple danced to their first song as a married couple. Logan and Jonathan each had a signature drink. Logan’s was “The Bride’s Mint to Be” (vodka, lime juice, syrup, mint, & tonic.. super delicious). Jonathan’s signature drink was “The Old Fashioned Groom” (bourbon, simple syrup, orange, cherry). They decided to do a balloon send-off, which turned out to be perfect for the reception site.

The memories. The couple says that it went by in such a beautiful blur. Jonathan says the wedding couldn’t have been any better, that it “was the best wedding ever.” Logan could not have been happier with her intimate, fun, and gorgeous day. Their favorite photo is the one of them kissing in front of the Seaside Chapel, (and of course all of the photos of their crazy friends and family dancing).

The people we owe it to. The vendors truly made this wedding possible. With Logan and Jonathan being from Texas, they hadn’t even met most of their vendors until the wedding day. Each vendor catered specifically to them and made their wedding day more than they could have ever asked for.

Southern Mansion Bridal Session from Jennifer Blair Photography

The list of reasons I love bridal sessions is a long one, but one look at this sweet sesh captured by Jennifer Blair Photography and there’s one simple reason standing tall and proud above the rest.  They’re gorgeous.  The kind of gorgeous that makes you stop everything you’re doing (and I mean everything) to soak it all in.  And when it’s a breathtaking day set against the stunning Eden Garden’s State Park with a bride as gorgeous as this lovely lady, well… it’s more than gorgeous.  It’s beyond pretty.  See it all right here in the full gallery.

From Jennifer Blair…  I’m so excited to share this bridal session with you all. I’m so enthralled with every little detail. Karis is the epitome of an elegant Southern bride, so we chose the Wesley mansion at Eden Garden for her bridals. It fit so perfectly with her look. The elegant and sturdy pillars complimented the delicate lace of her Sottero & Midgley gown. The grandiose moss-covered oaks fell in line with her classic chapel-length veil and jeweled details. Her lovely locks felt reminiscent of the 1920’s. I couldn’t have been more in love with the whole feel.

Seaside Vow Renewal at Watercolor Resort from Amanda Suanne

The lovely Beth, of The White Dress By The Shore, is the type of woman little girls want to be when they grow up. She owns one of the most beautiful bridal boutiques I ever did see (I actually got my gown there), and she exudes this elegance and grace not often found in our day and age. She is just all around darling. So when I heard that she and her ADORABLE family were doing a vow renewal and Amanda Suanne was on hand to capture every moment – I was chomping at the bit to see how it all turned out. The result? Stunning. And even though Beth and I aren’t that far apart in age, after devouring all the sweetness in this post, I so want to be her when I grow up. See every gorgeous image here.

From Beth, the Bride: Last month my husband of nearly sixteen years and I renewed our vows during a family vacation in Seaside, Florida.

When Mark and I were on our honeymoon in Hawaii in September of 1997, we decided that we wanted to renew our vows in 15 years in front of our children. We had always wanted our vow renewal to take place in Hawaii. But, with our crazy schedules it seemed impossible to make it happen. As we were planning our spring vacation to our family home in the Watercolor Resort in Seaside, Florida, I suggested to Mark that we do it there. It has one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever been to and it is one of our favorite places on earth! So, the whole thing was planned in less than a month’s time!

It was difficult to tell friends and family that we were planning a vow renewal and none of them were invited! As hard as it was, it was very important to me that this ceremony be about my husband, myself and my children. At our first wedding, we had 180 guests in attendance. It was an absolutely perfect day, and I wouldn’t change a thing. But, this time around, I wanted it to be extremely intimate and I wanted to renew our love for one another in front of our children.

The ceremony took place on the beach in front of the Watercolor Resort. Mark and I recited the vows that we originally wrote and read at our first wedding. My 12 year old daugther Lindsay read an excerpt of “1st Corinthians” and then recited a poem that she wrote about how Mark and I embody the words of the scripture. My 9 year old son Mark read a poem that my sister Katie had written for us at our first wedding.

Trying to pick a dress was not easy! The only thing I knew for sure was that my friends at Modern Trousseau would design and make the dress. I went back and forth about the style that I should wear. I worked with designer Callie Tein and selected a gorgeous fabric from one of the gowns in her 2014 collection. It is a very pale blush satin covered alencon lace with appliques of guipuree lace. As the ceremony was so intimate and taking place on the beach, I opted for a very simple sheath with a sweetheart neckline.

As per usual, I found it much easier to dress everyone else! I had a vision for my husband’s attire but searched high and low for tan and cream seersucker pants, to no avail. I eventually enlisted my friend Enzo of Valentino Tailors to make a custom pair of trousers in exactly the perfect fabric. My daughter is a budding bridal designer and she sketched her dress and my head seamstress Penny created it for her. Lucky for her that her Mom owns a bridal boutique! My son, thank goodness, agreed to wear a bow tie and I had a custom tie made out of Liberty of London frabric by a company that I found on Etsy.

I adored every vendor that I worked with in putting this impromptu event together. You absolutely can’t beat southern charm and the vendors in the Florida panhandle know how to put together a beautiful wedding!

Here’s to another 16 years and beyond! [dotted]

Join me there for sooo much more.

Click here for the FULL wedding!

From Something Pretty PhotographyRaven and Stuart both live in Atlanta but wanted a more intimate, destination wedding. They decided to get married in Seaside, Florida, which couldn’t be a more beautiful charming place to get married. The mix of the beach and the aquatic regal theme of the wedding made for a truly beautiful, unique day. The church over in Seaside is a simple white church that is filled with light and was a gorgeous place for the ceremony. For the reception, there were lots of sofas, cozy chairs and blankets for people to mingle on, and they even brought her grandmother’s couch down that they had reupholstered for the wedding. They had a crest made, which was printed on many of the paper goods, as well as sea creatures with crowns, tridents, and other regalia. Blue and white china that her mother had collected for years was used for table settings and mixed with orchids and greenery around the reception area. There were parlor games out on the lawn, and the food was one the best spreads that I have ever seen, featuring tons of fresh seafood, shrimp and oysters. There was a simple but elegant lemon cake and an awesome groom’s cake that was a button up dress shirt. The day was perfect, and it really was a beautiful, elegant and relaxed wedding that we were truly thrilled to be part of.
