Elegant, Sophisticated Stylish Beach Wedding found Vol.1

Not every destination wedding has seashells and starfish (thank goodness). Aly & Mike's wedding is the perfect example of how to pull off a destination wedding at the beach while keeping with the natural Florida island (tropical) environment without it being beach themed.
 I want to start off this series with a big thanks to Concept photography.  They were wonderful to work with and took just took stunning images for all of us to drool over.
Staying true to the destination wedding weekend, Aly & Mike hosted a welcome reception and a rehearsal dinner for all their guests. South Seas was the perfect location because the resort offers to many sites to choose from when you're hosting pre and post wedding day parties.

The toasts are pretty much always my favorite part of the pre wedding parties.  I always suggest having a microphone on hand if you think you'll have some good ones.  And my usual scream:  GET VIDEO.
How can you not love a good paper lantern?  They don't always provide adequate lighting, so go for festival lighting as well if you can.
Its always important to remember that your design concept works day to night when you're planning anything that starts before sunset.

Smores. Yum. Enough said.
Stay tuned for more volumes...I'm sure you'd like to see the wedding, right?
