We’re All About the Details
The wedding was very intimate, only their closest friends and family were there. Both the bride and groom got ready on the premises and had a first look on one of the outside wrap around porches. We took portraits around the grounds and then joined the bridal party for some shots on the beach. When they returned to the hotel, their guests began to arrive and filled the garden area for their outdoor ceremony under an old willow tree.
The Color Palette
They did all of the bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnières. Keeping it symmetrical with the color palette and their nautical overall style. Jim and Emily really worked hard on the bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets, even took extra effort on their invites and most of the wedding favors.
A couple of their friends and Emily’s godmother helped with the boutonnieres and centerpieces. The floral laced bridal dress with her blue natural burlap sandals fits perfectly with the beach theme.
Jim’s wardrobe is simply stunning! Every piece of his wardrobe is classy but still keeps that vintage look. His teal trimmed neck tie looks fresh and just adds enough excitement on his sazzy navy suit.
The atmosphere of the whole day was something that everyone would never forget. Everyone was filled with love. They have no wedding planner, so all of the decorations were planned by the couple but everything went as planned.
They made some and bought some off Etsy and schemed in their heads how it would all look. Seeing it all put together on their wedding day was just amazing. Anyone wouldn’t change a thing. They were able to talk to everyone and still have time to dance the night away. The bridesmaids wore a sea foam green, groomsmen in gray and the groom wore a custom navy suit with a fun jellyfish lining. The bride wore a lace gown with a lace trimmed veil.

♥ Pick the best vendors and trust them! Read all the reviews you can find and when you book them, trust them! They’re professionals, they know what they’re doing. Don’t stress over the small stuff.
