Katie + Chase :: Rosemary Beach Wedding Planners

We took a little peek into our archives for this week’s blog and stumbled upon the UBER-gorgeous wedding of Katie & Chase, who were married last fall in Rosemary Beach.  We spent a little over a year working with and getting to know Chase’s {super-fun!} mom, Suzette and our {adorably sweet!} bride, Katie – and, as you can probably deduct from these amazing images from Meg Baisden Photography – this wedding was to. die. for.  Visions of bling and fluffy flowers danced through all our heads, and thanks to Christina of Nouveau Flowers, those visions sprung to life in what always seems to be an effortless fashion.  Of course, we all know that “effortless” is not a term in which any of us are familiar . . . we just make it look that way so y’all can just sit back, enjoy being the bride {and groom, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, Aunt Betty, etc.}, and let us lead the way to your very happy, very pretty, and very fun Rosemary Beach wedding.  It’s kinda what we {and our amazing team of wedding pros} do.  :)

And, if the phenomenally pretty pictures aren’t enough to suit your fancy, go ahead and continue the drool-fest over their UH-mazing wedding video from our awesome NOLA friends, BrideFilm:

Becca & Landon’s Rosemary Beach Wedding

This adorable bride and groom are, well, adorable.  We actually first met Becca’s parents, Lisa and David, in Destin about a year before their wedding, and let them in on our little Rosemary Beach secret – and when Becca & Landon made their way here to visit, they immediately fell in love with the idea of having their wedding there!    We got right down to planning: everything from incorporating touches of purple, to a band who could throw some low-key jazzy tunes into the mix, to bringing in cute details like lawn games and a pretty purple signature drink, to rolling away at the end of the night in style (Rolls Royce anyone?) – and like magic, it all came together!  Ok, maybe not magic, but Jen2 definitely has a few tricks up her wedding planner sleeves to make a wedding go off without a hitch.  😉

Congratulations, Becca & Landon!  We loved being able to make your Rosemary Beach wedding come to life!  Y’all are just too cute for words and we wish you lots of love and many years of happiness!

Insanely gorgeous photos from our sweet friends at Paul Johnson Photography.  You guys ROCK!

Pretty purple and white bouquet courtesy of those talented girls over at Nouveau Flowers.

 Now THIS is what you call relaxing on your daughter’s wedding day!  If this doesn’t show just how little you have to worry about when you let us handle your wedding, then I don’t know what does.  Chillin’.  Maxin’.  Relaxin’.  Whatever you want to call it, we like this.  A lot.  

 Because everyone should have at least two things at their wedding: Sushi martinis and yummy cake.  In no particular order, of course.  Townsend Catering and Sweet for Sirten did not disappoint in the yum-department.

 If you’re going to bring ridiculously cute children to your wedding, you should also bring ridiculously cute lawn games.  

 The open-air tent is always a huge crowd-pleaser.  Especially when it doesn’t rain the sun goes down.  

Ride off into the sunset (or the glow of moonbeams, I suppose) in a fancy car.  

XOXO,

The It’s a Shore Thing Girls

 

 

Danner & Barrett’s Rosemary Beach Wedding

So, we obviously love planning Rosemary Beach weddings.  Not only is it – literally – one of THE most amazing places on this green earth, it also somehow aligns us with some of the sweetest couples ever.  Take Danner & Barrett, for example.  With a short and sweet 4-month engagement, Danner was the epitome of a super-awesome bride: laid back, trusting (!!), and a rockin’ decision-maker.  We always say: Trust us (and your fab wedding team), and your wedding will blow your socks off!  And that’s exactly what happened.  From the oh-so-gorgeous fun and colorful decor provided by Florals by the Sea, to the amazing fiddler with the Kari & Billy Arnold Band, to the ridiculous cake masterpieces from Confections on the Coast, to the always-scrumptious treats from our pals over at Townsend Catering – this wedding left everyone, well, sock-less.

With a ceremony and reception taking place all on the Eastern Green, Danner & Barrett’s guests were treated to a conveniently fabulous setting and an equally fabulous good time.  And thanks to Leslee Mitchell, we can show off all the fabulousness right here – feel free to drool and ooh and ahh . . . it’s kind of what we aim for.  :)

 

Story behind this little guy?  Well, our groom is a peanut farmer in Alabama.  Of course we had a groom’s cake in the shape of Mr. Peanut.  

If you’re stuck for ideas on your ‘Something Blue’, go buy yourself a pair of Kate Spades.  Your self will thank you.

Abby & Rhett’s Rosemary Beach Wedding

We met sweet Abby a little over a year ago and immediately knew we were going to have a blast together planning her Rosemary Beach wedding.  We became fast friends and got right down to business – and by business, I mean, obsessing over her pretty Pinterest board and sharing sweet stories of how she and Rhett have been together SINCE EIGHTH GRADE (there were even cute pictures to prove it!).  Is that not totally sweet, or what?  Love a true love story – and these two basically win the award for awesomest love story ever.

We’re no strangers to a Rosemary Beach wedding, and this one can go in the books as really-really fun, really-really pretty, and really-really sweet.  Southern fare and fluffy flowers provided by Celestine’s, block-rockin’ beats by Az-Izz, as-always fabulous cake from Confections on the Coast, and a crowd that could boogie like no other – I’d say that’s a sweet success in my book!

And if you don’t believe me, take a gander at this awesome video by Holloway Productions: http://vimeo.com/68847620!

Adore you two (and am thrilled we’re almost-neigbors now!) and wish you many forevers of love and happiness!! {xo, jen2}

Terri & O’Neal’s Destination Wedding Weekend

Destination weddings are really F-U-N.  Destination weddings where we’re involved in planning and executing the whole weekend of events are SO F-U-N!  Not only do we get to maximize our creativity across multiple events, we’re able to guide a bride and groom through each and every detail of what will be one of the most memorable experiences of their new lives together.  Because we’re involved in every detail throughout all of their planned events, the bride and groom can just sit back, relax, and enjoy their big, fabulous weekend!  And because we’re privy to the overall experience, we can really be sure to build the weekend up for the grand finale event: THE WEDDING!  It’s our goal for your guests to leave feeling super-taken care of – maybe a little sunburned – and filled to the brim with happy bellies, full hearts, and a pair of worn out dancin’ shoes!

Terri & O’Neal’s wedding weekend was no exception to the we-only-do-things-that-are-awesome rule.  We hit the mean streets of Santa Rosa Beach and put on a 30A wedding weekend that may hit the books as one of the best ever.  The running theme of the weekend was ‘Faith, Hope & Love’, which was inspired by two very  two sweet pups of our groom, “Faith” and “Hope” . . . the only thing missing was – you guessed it – LOVE!  Enter our pretty bride and you have not only a fabulous theme for a wedding, but a truly special love story.

The number ’13’ also held special significance for them, as it denotes their favorite Bible scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:13, which says, “And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love.  But the greatest of these is Love.”  Despite the number ‘7’ winning the lucky number popularity contest of the century, we think they hit the jackpot with each other in truly finding love as their missing link.  And what better day to celebrate that love than on April 13, 2013?  Quite clever, in our humble opinions.

Terri & O’Neal’s weekend agenda included an everyone’s-invited Beach Day, catered by our friends over at Chanticleer Eatery in Grayton Beach, a white-themed beach party/rehearsal dinner, with a tasty shrimp boil provided by Grayton Beach Catering,  a drop-dead gorgeous ceremony held at St. Rita’s Catholic Church, and a fabulous Western Green reception in Rosemary Beach.  Mega-ultra-huge-ginormous THANK YOU to that talented duo over at Rae Leytham Photography for the amazing images they shared documenting the entire weekend!

Once you’re done drooling over all these pretty photos, go grab a box of tissues and take a peek at their fabulous wedding film, courtesy of Momentus Films: http://vimeo.com/72466705.

Guess what we used in lieu of a traditional guest book?  A cute way for guests to leave a fill-in-the-blank message of HOPE!  

Another wonderful Confections on the Coast creation: A cake inspired by the bride’s dress!

We can always count on Facetime PhotoBooth  for hours and hours of ridiculous fun.

Christina, of Events by Nouveau Flowers, always knocks it out of the park with her designs and florals – and this one was no exception!

Wild guess what table number was reserved especially for our bride and groom?  Hint: It’s not 7.

Townsend Catering just never ceases to amaze us. 

No wedding is complete without a super-sweet sendoff in A Bride’s Ride Packard Convertible!

Congrats, Terri & O’Neal!  

 Shout-outs to the rest of our amazing team of wedding pros – we couldn’t do this without y’all!
