Alexis & Justin
Eau Gallie Yacht Club

I’m so excited to share this absolutely fabulous tropical themed wedding with everyone!  It is to die for!!  You may remember Alexis and Justin from their engagement session adventure HERE.  Alexis has a TON of style so I was pumped to see her vision come to life with the aid of planning rockstar, Melanie Paige Events!! Oh and just you wait, Patti from Buds Etc is so magical!  The centerpieces are EPIC!!

We started at the Raddison beach side glamming up the girls with Meredith and Diana.  Meredith stayed close to Alexis for the majority of the day and switched her hair style for the reception.  So cool!  Personal glam squad <3  We then moved to Holy Name of Jesus just across the street for a Catholic Mass.  I love traditional ceremonies, they always have the most beautiful music!  We made a pit stop on the way to the reception at Gleason Park where we snapped a few sunny and tropical portraits and then partied through the night!

Keep reading for all their gorgeousness and details!  Something extra fun is at the end 😉  Congratulations to Alexis and Justin!!! I’m so happy for you guys; so much love!! XOXO!

Brides Who Brunch
A NEW bridal education experience!

I’m so excited to give everyone a peek into an all new bridal workshop brought to you by the minds of my favorite wedding pros in the area!!  The very first “Brides who Brunch” from this past Sunday was an afternoon full of demonstrations, style inspiration, brunch, consultations, and cocktails!  It was a dream planning event for the super stylish bride to be!

Brides were greeted with brunch and a few starter activities before moving to the large meeting room for a live Q&A with five amazing planners.  You could then hop from lounge to lounge and meet with the planners one on one!  They then finished with demonstrations from Brevard’s top vendors in yet another room!  There was so much to see and do!  I loved seeing my friendors in action as they shared their amazing skills and expertise.

It’s impossible to capture and share every last detail from such a large event.  You will have to follow Brides Who Brunch to stay in the know and get your ticket for the next event!  This event was sold out!!  Keep reading for more details and inspiration from all of our wedding pro participants…

Melanie Paige Events + Design
Cypress Grove Estate House, Orlando Florida

Who loves brunch like me!?  Brunch + Cypress Grove Estate is just too perfect and if you’re looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place 😉  Melanie Paige Events had this idea to do a brunch styled shoot at Cypress and I was immediately on board.  I had been wanting do something with waffle cakes for a long time so this was the perfect project!

We started at Erin’s salon, Artone Studios, getting the girls glammed up by Erin and Joanna from In2YourBeauty Makeup Artistry!  I just love these hot pink lip colors!!

We found the perfect blond squad for our light and airy, colorful portraits and outfitted them with L.A. Bridal floral print bridesmaid dresses and a tulle wedding gown.  After A While Crocodile inspired me with her green and pink floral stationary suite which finished off our pink, green, and gold tablescape with things from the #styledfortwo plate and glass stash and Z Create Design’s #idoweddingdecor collection!

Flowers by Lesley brought the prettiest bouquets and centerpiece full of greens, pinks, and vibrant colors.  The perfect pallet for our reception setup on the back veranda.  Our rentals from RW Events and Chich Events were the perfect arrangement of modern pieces.  Florida Candy Buffets provided all of the yummy treats and Rhum Girls provided the drink inspiration!!

Keep reading for all of the delicious inspiration and check out our shoot video by the incredible Roberto of Love it Wedding Films!!

Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Adventure!

Let me take you on ANOTHER awesome Florida adventure!!  This time with two super sweet young loves, Juliana and Tyler.  A little less than 2 hours South West of Melbourne is this gorgeous botanical garden and historic property, Bok Towers.  It is well worth the drive!  A large property full of scenic, hilly ~yes hilly~ views, and flowers.  A true gem in the middle of nowhere Florida!

Juliana and Tyler are the sweetest people and I loved getting to know them as we spent the day together road tripping and shooting in the garden.  Juliana brought three super cute outfits for their sesh, I love her style!

Thank you guys for adventuring with me!! Can’t wait for the big day!!

XOXO!!!
