Blizzard Bride Series Vol.1

I can not believe I haven't blogged this wedding.  Last June we had this just absolutely fun, great family escape wedding weekend at South Seas Resort.  Truly, one of those weddings where you just don't want it to end because everyone is having such a great time together.  This is EXACTLY what destination weddings should be like.  All these images are by Impressions Photography, who never seem to miss a beat.  I love Kristas detail shots!
How you welcome your guests is important.  Melody & Jeff wrote individual notes to each guests inside their message in a bottle style escort cards.

Three simple cymbidium orchid stems with grass and sand gave life to this otherwise blank wall.
Later in the evening the pillar candles really gave this foyer a romantic glow.  I''m a fan of pillars when possible.  Tealights and votives don't make quite the statement.

Rather than you're typical gift envelope box, we stacked these travel cases on a table and left the top one open.  This way it didn't interfere with the rest of the decor.
Not your average table number holder.  We used sea elements everywhere we could.  I was so excited to come across these coral pieces.  I'm pretty certain they weren't meant to be table numbers, but that's beside the point.

While the girls all got ready, they had these cute little bag lunches.
No boring brown paper bags on my watch.

More coming, no worries.  I have to narrow it down from like a million great pictures.
