Whenever I talk to someone who is recently engaged and in the planning stage, (whether I know them or not), my first question is always, “Have you picked out your colors?!” I love to see the color palette brides choose because it always says so much about their personality. Today’s Florida bride, Anna, picked a perfectly beach-y combo of orange and blue for her October nuptials which matches her and hubby Patrick’s vivacious, laid back and classic style. Anna is just radiant in her white Maggie Sottero gown which she paired with a few blue accessories (lovin’ that necklace) that fit the mood of the day just right…don’t you think? The ladies of Stay Forever Photography, Jessica and Melissa, were on hand to capture all the loveliness (and boy did they do their job!). With a beautiful backdrop of palm trees and a touch of the Florida sun, Anna + Patrick were wed at Fort Pierce Yacht Club. They continued the evening with some serious dancing, delicious food and gorg flowers by Giordano’s.
If I don’t respond back to emails or phone calls today it’s because this wedding makes me want to take off straight to the beach Sullivans here I come!

Hope everyone is having a Happy Wednesday and staying cool from this serious summer heat! I’m so excited to share Jada + Dan’s sweet North Carolina engagement session by Charlotte Photographer, Vanessa Schrotenboer. They spent the day at Latta Plantation as Vanessa captured some very frame-able images of couple in their element. The lighting is perfect, the setting is beautiful and can you get a cuter couple? I don’t think so!
You can call Pinterest an addiction but I like to refer to it as research I always thought it would be so fun to be a florist. Would you not love to be surrounded by gorgeous blooms all day long? I remember when I was planning my wedding and you could not pry me from the computer. I was constantly searching and searching for the perfect bouquet, boutonniere, centerpieces etc. Sometimes, I would just find one type of flower or a particular shade of color that would be exactly what I was looking for. So, my hopes in sharing Part II of Wedding Bouquets (Don’t miss Part I!) is that they’ll be that perfect bit of inspiration that has been the missing link to your wedding day inspiration board…
Ashley of Live. Laugh. PHOTOGRAPH sent over this perfectly charming Southern wedding, complete with cowboys boots and live country music…Texas style! The couple, Katy + Jason, were wed June 11, 2011 just outside of Dallas at Loma Linda in beautiful Rockett, Texas. Doesn’t Katy just look flawless in her strapless gown, pearls and cowboy boots? I love it. The rustic venue allowed for a touching outdoor ceremony under the trees. After, the guest made their way to the reception where the dined on Randy’s BBQ’s signature cuisine and later indulged in their choice of two fabulous desserts by Dallas Affaires Cake Co. To top of the evening, the guests danced the night away to the tunes of Chad McBride and The Drifters.
All in all, I’d have to say it was a perfect Texas Wedding…
I would have to say our Charleston, Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach brides know how to do wedding hair right.

Even though I have always been a fan of their old school bottling, I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I’ve never, EVER, tasted the inherently Southern concoction, Cheerwine. Somewhere along the way my Southern upbringing seemed to miss that one which I think is only fair to blame on my parents’ Midwestern roots. Unlike yours truly, today’s outdoorsy couple, Jennifer + Jonathan, have had many-a Cheerwine.
The couple both hail from Salisbury, North Carolina (Cheerwine’s birthplace) and decided to combine their love of their hometown, Cheerwine and canoeing in this gorgeous rustic engagement session. Thanks to our friends at Connection Photography, Joseph and Andrea, for sharing!
