This destination couple were such a pleasure to plan with. From their kindness to the love that they shared - it was a true honor to get to know them.
Meg and Alicia wanted a water side ceremony - and the Sarasota Yacht Club was the perfect location. Their ceremony was pure perfection with water views and beautiful florals to compliment the view.
With dusty accents, and pops of color - the florals were stunning, and just right for their vision.
Cake isn't their thing - but donuts were! We made it happen with a donut cart from The Amish Baking Company.
With just a few "beachy" details - white starfish and a sandy set up for their escort cards - guests got just the right amount of the Siesta Key vibe, without going overboard.
Every moment of planning with this amazing couple was so much fun, I am so happy to them - and wish them a lifetime of morning donuts together!
The silly, sweet and contagious love that was so apparent between Melissa and Austin was truly the center of this beautiful wedding - but you still couldn't help but notice ALL the pretty things....
From them soft romantic arch, that we were happy to custom create for them to the rich and rosy linens, and the gold undertones this is one of our favorites!
The touches of color were purposeful, and all to pull together their overall wedding look. From their invitations, the the draping on the arch - everything was with intent.
We loved designing for these two - we started with an inspiration photo and ended up with a wedding, that in my opinion, is one for the books!
Sincerest Thank you to some of my favorites...

At our first planning meeting Laurel showed me some photos of a BEAUTIFUL ceremony, complete with blooming curly willow branches, shades of mint and pink and an aisle of romantic candle light and rose petals. That was the start of their wedding vision, and all the details fell into place from there! Her bridesmaids relaxed, sipped cocktails and enjoyed hair and make up services from Patrice Womack Beauty. The groomsmen spent the day in the game room at Lakewood Ranch Country Club laughing and catching up!
Heather Lauren Photography was on site to capture all the special moments and details of their ballroom ceremony. Surrounded by family and friends they said "I DO", sealed it with a kiss and smiled from ear to ear!
The reception was a party with Jam All Day Entertainment playing all the best, leading dances and showing guests how to have fun in their on site photo booth. The groom even serenaded his new wife with an original song, written just for this occasion.
Laurel & Tony had a vision - shades of mint and pale pink with elegant accents of gold and ivory and that is what I am proud to have given them. They are such a special couple and I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
