The very first thing that stood out to me about Aubrie and Carl’s Florida wedding at The Estate on the Halifax were the nearly identical dresses both she and her daughter wore! I love how the floral detailing was carefully included in both dresses, and I couldn’t help but think the sweet little girl probably felt like a true princess for the day. As I read their story, I realized that Aubrie and Carl presented their daughter with a ring on their wedding day, and they included her in as many of their moments as they could (the photo of the trio dancing together is the best!). Their blush and gold details are beautiful, the florals by Rachel Kasie Designs stand out for lovely reasons all on their own, but it’s their story – the one they share with their daughter – that drew me in the most.

I hope you love the documentary style photographs captured by Jamie Lee Creativity from Aubrie and Carl’s fabulous wedding day! It’s clear that I definitely do. Happy Friday, friends!

The theme for today’s gorgeous purple and burgundy wedding inspiration shoot designed by Posh-itively Perfect Events is, without a doubt, romance. Rather than turning to a classic beach venue for their Southern California photo shoot in Orange County, the creative team looked to The Villa San Juan Capistrano. The space feels like an old world villa with its art depicting 300 years of history and beauty, and it features fabulous grounds to host one stunning soiree!

With a palette filled with deep shades of purple, burgundy, and blush, the team created a cozy, glamorous, and elegant setting for the bride and groom and four of their guests. Beautiful arrangements filled with roses and greenery designed by Studio C Florals looked stunning against the dark tones of the wooden table complete with wood burned menus, and the hanging cakes created by Frost-It Cakery looked perfectly whimsical tucked into the trees. The bride’s dress is jaw dropping, y’all, and it’s safe to say you’re going to love each and every image captured by Rebecca Thacher Photography!

I cannot begin this post without saying one simple statement: I have never seen a beach soiree look as glamorous as today’s Islamorada wedding. Lauren and Robert reside in Atlanta, and Lauren spent many vacations with her family at the beach while she was growing up. Robert also loves being by the sun, sand, and sea, so their wedding locale became an obvious one.

Together the pair visited many cities and venues in Florida before ultimately selecting Postcard Inn in beautiful Islamorada. It turned into a serendipitous find because they were able to enjoy an incredible destination wedding with their guests while also honoring Lauren’s grandparents who honeymooned in the Florida Keys many years prior.

Together with her mom and expert planner, Event Bliss, Lauren and Robert created a wedding day filled with clean lines, a classic palette of white, navy, and a hint of blush, and fabulous Old Hollywood details (the flowers designed by L+R’s planner are fantastic!). Their ceremony was held on the sand, music transported guests through the decades, and dinner and dancing followed under string lights and a beautiful moon with waves crashing nearby.

The images captured by Tiffani Jones Photography are marvelous, and you will also have to keep reading in order to glean so much from Lauren’s thoughtful insight into her planning process.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I wanted to stay as far away from a theme as possible. I very much dislike how many events often look like they are pulled out of a pre-packaged bag, with very little character, charm or individual taste. I wanted to pull from some of my favorite elements: an up-scale, old-Hollywood/deco-inspired beach bash – without any “beach” flavors aside from the beautiful surroundings we were within. I love the juxtaposition these elements create – and feel somewhat unexpected when put all together! Even talking to various planners/vendors in the area, I could tell it wasn’t something they come across often, which was entirely reassuring it was something I wanted to move forward with.

I wanted to keep everything mostly white – with some navy & (very) light peach accents – alongside metallics (with gold being my favorite). I’m a stickler for clean lines. It helps your eye rest, focus and appreciate the details and accents you consciously selected to stand out.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite moment, may have been after the Ceremony and during the Family Portraits… I overheard the Cocktail Hour music playing. It made me so excited to HEAR the vibe I so badly wanted to be conveyed – and there it was. It was all coming together and it was thrilling. I also very much enjoyed taking the portraits with my (new!) husband, on one side of the property that I had been dreaming of taking photos at since I first fell in love with the property. The sunset was perfect – more than I had expected, and it was finally a time to relax while not being in the limelight of so many people. I also loved hearing some of my favorite music play over dinner while at the head table with some of my closest “people” – again observing everything I envisioned right there in front of my face – as well as the very dreamt of event of running through the sparklers at the end of the night (to then get on a runaway golf cart …that got stuck in the sand!).

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

For destination brides, definitely make sure you have a planner from the on-set of your wedding. You need someone to talk to, vent & understand what you are dealing with – all while knowing the local landscape & associated logistics. He/She should match your personality, and have a very important characteristic: to listen!! My planner was fantastic in being a partner to me, but also letting me take absolute control/freedom with my vision. She really helped with some of the more “unexpected” challenges right before the wedding, and day-of – which was great considering we had worked together all along, discussing the vision & plans – so she was best equipped to manage them in a fashion that I was comfortable with. Also make sure you visit the locations you are interested in before signing with a particular venue. Photography can really make something look different than it is, and was a somewhat eye-opener for my mom & I as we visited properties that looked beautiful online – but were so blatantly flawed in-person.

Secondly, I (perhaps foolishly) would say that you will go over budget. I highly suggest you outline your ideal situation, and track it as you go (Excel!). You will come to a point after you’ve secured your vendors but don’t have all of the intricate details confirmed, where you will see that you either have to sacrifice some of your vision or increase your budget. At this point, it’s a great opportunity to think through how much you are willing to sacrifice or go over – and then stick to THAT adjusted budget!! (Or it can always continue to increase!)

Julia and David’s elegant wedding took place at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, and I’m convinced it was everything that dreams are made of. A gorgeous color palette boasting rich tones of purples and reds set the stage for a luxurious, elegant wedding design. Bridesmaids in purple, red florals, and champagne and gold accents made for an absolutely gorgeous day. And when you add in Julia’s lace Monique Lhuillier gown, the presence of Julia and David’s pups, and it’s captured by our favorite, Brooke Images, it’s perfection- I can’t wait for you to see!
