Planning a destination wedding is not for the faint of heart, but with the guidance of Elite Planning Firm, Anna and Phil’s Miami wedding was an incredible evening of fun.

Throughout the planning process, this bride knew she wanted to stay away from anything stuffy, and to provide their guests with a taste of Miami. They created a classic, yet understated and elegant look with blues and pinks that brightened up the modern ballroom space at Epic Hotel beautifully. We absolutely love the globe lighting in the space that deviated from the traditional ballroom chandeliers, and set the tone for a modern vibe. The flowers, designed by Ever After Floral Design, added a fun splash of color to the space, while still sticking to the beautiful and classic style.

We hope you enjoy the simple elegance of Anna and Phil’s wedding day, and the beauty that Ambrosio Photography captured from their Miami celebration.

We love that these two embraced the beauty of the city they celebrated in, and took an opportunity to sneak out for some late night photos at the rooftop pool to capture the sites of downtown for a perfect ending to their tropical destination celebration!

With a mutual love for the water, Catie and Scott knew that they wanted to incorporate this into their Florida wedding day from the very beginning.

Starting early with their venue search, they found the perfect venue that captured their love for water at The River House in St. Augustine, Florida. Using a light, neutral color palette of muted greens and peaches, they chose a classic and elegant style that allowed the beauty of the space to really shine. With the guidance of The Eventful Gals, they celebrated in style with a waterfront ceremony and a charming reception with simple Southern style.

We love the beauty, love, and utter joy that We are The Bowzers captured throughout their wedding day, and we are thrilled to share some behind the scenes insight from the bride!

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding (your vision, color, style, and location choices).

Scott & I both share a love of the water, so of course we wanted our wedding day to incorporate this. My mom actually suggested the venue we chose, and the first time we went to tour it we knew it was perfect. The River House offered everything we wanted: just outside the center of St. Augustine, it provided a gorgeous view of the Mantanzas River perfect for an outdoor ceremony coupled with a elegant ballroom for the reception. We wanted a coastal themed wedding, incorporated the blues & greens of Florida. Working with the staff at the River House and the ladies at The Eventful Gals helped us achieve everything we wanted for our wedding day.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

We both wanted to be conscientious of budgeting, not wanting to spend too much on frivolous or unnecessary things. We knew that photography and videography were very important, so we made sure to obtain referrals from friends & families and meet with several companies before choosing We Are the Bowsers (who were AMAZING!). Food was also an important part of the wedding, and we tried several caterers before choosing La Cocina. We have a lot of friends & family with certain dietary restrictions, so we wanted to make sure everyone was accommodated. Florals were obviously more important to me, whereas Scott handled the alcohol selection. In the end, we made sure to communicate with each other throughout the entire planning process to ensure that both of our visions could come together for the perfect day. While I did handle most of the planning, it was definitely a combined effort for both of us.

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?

Start early! Communicate. The best wedding days are a result of a combined effort. Listen to what your significant other wants, what their vision is, and try to make concessions where you can. It’s hard to achieve every specific detail, but if you work together the final product will be everything you BOTH wanted which makes it that much more special.

Always our favorite advice! Planning a wedding is hard work, and we love when couples dive in together, focus on what’s important, and celebrate every moment that the day offers.

A rustic bohemian style with bold pops of red created a beautiful design for these boho wedding ideas. Set at Why Ranch in the heart of Las Vegas, Weddings and Events by Emily created this romantic boho style with a mix of rich wood textures and soft organic materials. We’re thrilled to share this beautiful design with you today!

The soft white blooms with pops of red mixed in created a beautiful contrast to the dark wood tones and green landscaping. And can we talk about the bridal bouquet?! With large blooms and lots of texture, the mix of white, soft blush, and beautiful bold red was the perfect compliment to the bride’s romantic look. In contrast, we love the simplicity of the greenery bouquets carried by the bridesmaids that created a beautiful balance between the two styles. Layers of Lovely really wowed with her floral design, and would love to see this style translated into more real weddings.

You will love how this rustic style came to life, and how Unique2Chic Photography captured the light airiness of this style in the most beautiful way. We hope you enjoy!

One of our favorite details took place in the reception table design. Table numbers typically take a back seat in the overall wedding design, but we love how this vendor team chose to make it a standout feature. Beautiful calligraphy on the side of a brass lantern made for a functional work of art, and Openinkstand Calligraphy‘s lettering is absolutely gorgeous!

Such a lovely style that balances beauty and practicality. We love that they put an emphasis on little details that make a big statement, and balanced the design so beautifully. From the bold floral style carried by the bride, to the more subtle and organic design that filled the tables, this shoot really focused on providing a beautiful balance between elements, and this makes total sense as you’re designing your wedding day.

In what ways do you see yourself adding statement pieces to balance your wedding day style?

An elegant color palette accented with icy blues set the tone beautifully for Mindy and Nick’s St. Louis wedding. From getting ready at The Cheshire, to their gorgeous ceremony at St. Ambrose Catholic Church followed by a celebration at the Missouri History Museum, every step of their wedding day was full of touching moments and beautiful spaces that made for a gorgeous day.

We absolutely love the beauty and romance that Erin Stubblefield Weddings and Portraiture captured throughout the day. The massive columns and the stunning architecture of Missouri History Museum provided an elegant backdrop, while elements from the museum (like the hanging plane) added a fun and unique experience for their guests. And of course we are in love with the beautiful florals designed by Les Bouquets, including the timeless bouquet that was a perfect compliment to Mindy’s look.

We hope you enjoy the beauty and joy of Mindy and Nick’s wedding day!
