Burgundy and Velvet Seaside Wedding

We love when brides and grooms step out of the all neutral color palette by embracing deeper saturated colors and incorporate fun textures into their wedding day.  Ashely and Tony’s wedding in Seaside, Florida did just that!  Ashley’s bridesmaids were sashed with burgundy velvet while Tony and his groomsmen had eye-catching bowties to match.  The reception was not forgotten either with these gorgeous unexpected colors placed throughout the tablescapes, floral arrangements filled with these pops of burgundy and pinks, all placed on linens that looked like a bed of roses.  With the new year around the corner, we are excited to see our future clients’ weddings come to life with color and texture just like this one.

A Fall Foliage – Inspired Alys Beach Wedding

Autumn is quickly approaching, which means it is time for creative, fall-inspired color palettes! This Alys Beach wedding was one of our favorites.

A crisp breeze in the middle of fall adds a touch of cozy to an already intimate event; and, with fall being a family-oriented season to begin with, adding a soiree to the mix makes the cool months that much more exciting.

Fall weather also allows for the bride to get creative with the decor design and the blooms in the bouquets, and that is exactly what this bride did. Myrtie Blue worked with the bride to effortlessly create a stunning, floral-filled event space and bouquets filled with fall-inspired colors. The bouquets mixed with the romantic bridesmaids dresses paired with floral crowns completed the most elegant autumn affair.

See this wedding featured on Style Me Pretty, here!

Over at SPE, we love fall weddings and would love to hear your ideas for the perfect autumn wedding. Let us know in the comments!

Happy fall!

SPE Team

Farron + Eric | Seaside, Florida Wedding

Add a black tie wardrobe, a traditional ceremony in the Seaside Chapel, and tulle to a classic-fitted lace dress and you have one of the most opulent affairs on 30-A. The whimsical blooms and classic candelabras completed the prettiest tablescape on the pristine Lyceum lawn in Seaside, FL.

From the bride:


How we met: 
After moving to Houston for work, I ran into Eric while out with friends at a local hot spot. We had previously met briefly through mutual friends during our college days and recognized each other. It was there where we swapped numbers and the rest is history! 
Eric and I had planned our first trip abroad to London during May of 2014. We arrived our first day in London with a full day planned. We first stopped off at one of my favorite markets to pick up a bottle of champagne and a few small bites and then we headed to Regents Park. As we arrived at the park it started to down pour and neither of us had umbrellas. I was quick to suggest we head back to the tube station and try again tomorrow, but Eric was insistent on seeing Queen Mary’s Garden (really?). Although completely drenched, I amused him and we continued on our walk stopping at one point to dry my hair under a hand blow dryer in th bathroom.  It was only a few minutes after we arrived at the gardens that the sun came behind the clouds and we were left the only two people in the park. It was there where he proposed! As if the day couldn’t get any better, we finished our bottle of champagne and headed back to the hotel to find my parents at the hotel who had flown all the way to London to help us celebrate. We spent the rest of the weekend together enjoying what will forever be my favorite city! 
Planning Process:
I absolutely loved the wedding planning process! We knew we wanted to have an outdoor wedding and Seaside had always been one of our favorite beach spots. We booked the Seaside Chapel and Lyceum Lawn almost immediately after we returned from our trip. It was the perfect spot for us to host all of our family and friends for a weekend of celebrating! 
I loved working with Shelby to design our black tie beach wedding. Although traditional in style, Brian at Myrtie Blue was able to add a pop of color into the floral design – coral and pink – which was absolutely stunning and perfect for a May wedding. From the flowers to the cake to the band our reception was amazing in every way. It’s been over two years since our big day and we still have guests who rave about how much fun they had!
Favorite Memory of the Day:
My favorite memory of the day was following the ceremony Eric and I went to the beach for photographs (Lauren Kinsey you are amazing). It was the first quiet moment we had together as Mr. and Mrs. along with the most beautiful view of the sunset!

Fiesta-Inspired Summer Wedding in Rosemary Beach

Gold tones, pops of color, and tacos made for a perfect Summer wedding in Rosemary Beach, Florida. The fiesta-inspired banners strung above the lawn of the town hall paired perfectly with the jalapeño margaritas and the bubbly personalities of this bride and groom. From the beginning, this couple wanted to make sure their guests were comfortable and truly enjoyed themselves, and from the Photo Booth to the taco station, it looked like it was a huge success. Lauren Kinsey captured the entire fun-filled day perfectly.

From the bride:


“How we met:
JW and I met the old-fashioned way… Online. After a few texts/emails we met for lunch on a Friday and our first date lasted 5 hours and turned into happy hour!


JW started throwing me off the scent the night before. I’d been not-so-subtly hinting that I wanted to look at rings, but we hadn’t yet. He asked on a Friday night if I wanted to go look at rings the next day. I was ecstatic!

The next morning, after a mani pedi and our favorite workout class, we came home and I was sweaty and hungry (and a little cranky). He told me to wait outside our apartment- I literally thought (hoped) he was surprising me with lunch. When he said “okay, you can come in!” I opened the door… Walked down the hallway, wondering where he was, and then saw the kitchen completely filled with roses and champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and pastries, and JW waiting on one knee. His sister had snuck in while we were out, and gotten the whole surprise ready. He’d had the ring for 6 months.


My best friend Monica and her husband Danny are owners of one of the best restaurants (Paradis) in Rosemary Beach, and JW and I already had planned a trip there for spring break. As soon as we saw the Town Hall, the beaches, the square…we knew it was perfect for our wedding. We booked it almost immediately, and that same week, while we thought about what kind of food or theme we wanted, Danny suggested tacos. We knew we wanted our wedding to feel like one huge party… Not too formal, not too traditional and not too stuffy…so tacos were perfect. Paradis catered it, and I honestly think we had the best wedding food ever!

From there, we researched the vendors on the list the venue gave us, and picked who we thought would help reflect our style and personality most. Brian at Myrtie Blue was amazing and immediately ‘got’ our vision, and was great to work with. I loved Lauren Kinsey’s unique and artful style, so choosing her as our photographer was easy, and the rest just kind of fell into place. I made a lot of the details myself and Shelby was really helpful with coordinating getting everything to the venue and set up. It wasn’t easy planning a destination wedding from Chicago, but it was well worth it!

We also knew we wanted to include everyone (all 140 guests) the night before the wedding, so we planned a beach bonfire with Grayton Catering… It was amazing and perfect! One of the best parts of the weekend for sure.

Favorite moment:

I surprised JW with a song (performed by my insanely talented uncle and cousins)… right after I said my vows. It was an inside joke between the two of us, and I’m normally really bad at surprises, so pulling it off was pretty memorable.”

Intimate Beachside Wedding in Rosemary Beach

From the waves in the ocean to the waves in the hair, the guests at this intimate Rosemary Beach ceremony felt the love between this adorable couple.

The reception took place at a small, picturesque backyard near Rosemary Beach owned by the bride’s gracious grandparents. Lauren Kinsey Photography captured all of the romantic details from the rustic farm table and modern-flair ghost chairs to the clear love between Maggie and Jess.

The combination of modern elegance in a laid-back environment made us at SPE melt! We are all about the perfectly thought-out details: rosemary sprigs attached the hand-calligraphed place cards, hammered silverware, marble candlestick holders, and florals that complimented the natural scenery of a Florida backyard.
