The New Years Bride Series

We started the year off with such a great wedding.  It goes down in history as our coldest wedding ever, and I have to confess, I hope that it stays that way.  These pictures below are not pro pics, they're ours, but I couldn't wait to show off this great weekend at South Seas.  As soon as we can share the images from the super cool Tonya Malay, we'll post away, and then you'll just drool,  I'm sure.
These beach chic welcome bags included customized koozies, bottled water, gum, ibuprofen, key lime cookies, and  pretzels.  The basics are always a hit with destination wedding guests.
It was just too chilly to have the rehearsal dinner out of the deck like we planned, but the indoor table for 24 ended up looking just as great indoors.  We used simple potted orchids and bougainvillea with lanterns and beach rocks on a linen tablecloth to have a completely natural tablescape.
This is me and the groom, Mr Prince.  We bumped into each other on the golf course (it runs right next to the ceremony site at Sunset cove beach) when I was checking on ceremony set up.
Could you die over how cute this hanger is?  You can find one like it on Etsy.
I recommend to all my clients to have make & hair done professionally for wedding day.  If ever there was a day when you wanted to look perfect and be pampered...this is it.  Heather Longshore did an outstanding job on Mrs. Prince's hair & makeup as well as the rest of the bridal party.
Um, yeah, I dream about these shoes. Not even going to lie.
Here's the kicker with the sash and this gorgeous embellishment on it.  Mrs. Prince told the designer she didn't want a sash.  When the dress arrived, it was included as a surprise.  It totally made the dress.  See below...
Told ya.  Sash is awesome.

Make sure to read all the posts in this series because I have an awesome ending care of the masters over at AMC video.
