Rehearsal Dinner: Bahama Style!
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings

Kristin and Broen’s wedding weekend continues!   For the rehearsal dinner, everyone headed over to the Rock House Hotel for a meal together.  Broen’s family fancied up the party with all sorts of incredible details like handmade place cards, sailboats, and candleholders.  Of course, Jenelle Kappe was there in action capturing the sights and that adorable couple with their million dollar smiles and fresh, beachy style.

I’m so impressed by those gorgeous tabletops!  The sea glass is so pretty, and an exquisite alternative to floral centerpieces.  Up next.. the wedding!

Real Wedding Sneak Peek: A Meet and Greet
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings

Next week’s real wedding is not just a one-day affair, but an entire weekend of gorgeous in the Bahamas.  I thought that we’d kick off this weekend with a peek at Kristin and Broen’s inaugaral wedding event:  A meet ‘n greet on the beach!  Kristin’s parents hosted the gathering at the Bimini Cottage at Pink Sands Resort; the fabulous Jenelle Kappe was in residence to capture the wedding weekend- start to finish!

I just LOVE that pic of them kissing… and what a perfectly stylish party… from the pillows to the lanterns to Kristin’s beach-perfect maxi.  Guests shared hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and got cozy for a weekend of fun. The party continued well into the night, and shifted from the cottage to the beach, where Ben from Little Island Design had a gorgeous bon-fire lounge waiting.  This is just the start… but  it’s all that I’ll reveal until Monday!  Head back here next week to see Kristin and Broen’s exquisite rehearsal dinner and beautiful wedding…. and in the meantime… have a perfect summer weekend ♥

A Sunset Real Wedding in Maui by James Rubio
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings, Real Weddings

I’m so happy to have not one, but two incredible destination weddings to share with you this week!  Jocelyn and Frederick’s wedding is super special to us, as she is a beloved hostess on Project Wedding.  In fact, you might remember when we featured her bio! It’s packed with all of her inspirations and planning… so if you’re as in love with their big day as I am, you’ll definitely want to pour over every last bit of her planning process.  In the meantime, I could look at these photos by James Rubio for days…
Jocelyn looks so utterly happy…  I love how Aeleise at Hair Love Art Studio worked with her natural curl in a pretty, upswept style.  And those florals…I’m gushing!  Dellables used peach dahlias, gold ranunculus, white and green orchids and bold pink peonies to design the bouquets.   The soft ceremony palette seamlessly transformed into richer hues for the reception, with common threads of coral, peach, and gold. Jocelyn and Frederick married in an early evening ceremony, under an archway of coral fabric and hanging orchids…  too pretty for words if you ask me!These two met at work and, according to Jocelyn, they drove each other crazy from the start.  They were constantly at odds with one another.  But, the more they talked, the more chemistry they realized they had.  Eventually they started to chat on the phone… which turned into a nightly thing… and it was evident that a romance was brewing.  Five years later, Jocelyn and Frederick married in Maui! 

The couple celebrated their vows with a nighttime party at Mala Wailea.  Soft golden uplighting and more beautiful hanging flowers created a romantic ambiance.

A special thanks to Jocelyn for being such a fabulous hostess on PW and for sharing your day with us!

Blissful Beach Wedding in the Bahamas by Paper Antler
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings, Real Weddings

Who doesn’t love a glorious destination wedding with sun-shining, wind-blowing goodness?!  Once engaged, Lindsay and Joey knew they wanted a destination wedding, since they love to travel and see new places.  A trip to Nassau was one of the first they took together, and the memory of the incredible scenery drew them back for their wedding day.  The simple palette and natural backdrop of aquamarine ocean created such fresh-feeling photos; I can practically feel the sand beneath my toes! Thanks to one of my very favorite photography duos, Paper Antler, the pure love between Lindsay and Joey just shines right thru the screen.

Lindsay wore a stunning La Sposa gown with a ruffled skirt. Her maids wore sweet chiffon dresses in neutral taupe by The Dessy Group.  The soft palette and simple styling complemented the breathtaking seascape.

The couple wed on a long dock, extending into the ocean at Compass Point Beach Resort. April in Nassau is beautiful, sunny but not yet too hot.   That particular day was extra windy, blowing Lindsay’s cathedral length veil like crazy.  The pics below are so. gorgeous!

Seventy guests joined them for the weekend to enjoy the sites and sounds of the Bahamas, from relaxing on a five-hour cruise one day to dancing along to steel drums the next!

All the best to this gorgeous couple!
