ASD Real Wedding-A Navy, Pink and Gold Beach Wedding

Jennifer is all about the details. Reminds me of someone else I know… hmmm.
She convo’d me thru etsy (for those of you that aren’t hip to the Etsy lingo yet- that means she contacted me) and asked me to create a floral monogram letter for her beach wedding in Virginia. On top of that, she agreed to let me share some of the fabulous details that she used at her wedding. Their photographer, Sam Ellis, took some fun pictures of them on the boardwalk after their wedding. Hey, the day wouldn’t be complete without a game of skee-ball in your wedding duds right! In any case, after rifling thru a few hundred images (I reluctently couldn’t share all of them with you) I decided on a few that I feel really captured the details from Jennifer and Aaron’s wedding day.

First, the happy couple, the dress is to-die-for and the sky- perfect shade of blue!



You know I always call out my favorite and Jennifer’s shoes and purse are it.. hands down, my favorite detail from the day! I know, I know… what about my monogram letter? Well, ok, it’s a tie!
Once you see the dress in more detail you will see how well the purse matched the dress and those shoes… so elegant! And no, the purse was not purchased with the dress. It was an Etsy find- I’m tellin you… Etsy is the place to be!



Jennifer’s bouquet’s consited of white dahlias, roses and ranunculus flowers. The bridesmaid’s carried a smaller bouquet identical to Jennifer’s with a mix of pinks and a pop of red.



Guests were greeted at the reception, which was held at Salero in Rehoboth Beach, DE, by a box filled of white and pink crystals holding their placecards. Attached to each tented placecard was a starfish, a reference to the beach, where their ceremony was held.



Now for my next favorite detail! The monogram “C” that I made for the couples table. Covered on all sides by hot pink carnations to signify the unity of the couples new last name.



I wanted to include another picture of Jennifer and Aaron at their table with the “C”. What a great photo op and that view….



What do you think about this three-tiered wedding card box cake- made by the brides’ sisters! The boxes were accented with gold at the base of each layer, hot pink scrolls and their monogram. Notice the real shells placed on each tier and the cute beach basket in the background to hold extras. Love how creative her sister’s were by pulling in all aspects of the wedding when designing the “cake” wedding card box. Simply said… Lovely.


Now… on to the real cake! YUMMY!


How creative and unique is this guest favor? A treasure chest filled with the best treasures of all… candy! Including taffy (anyother tie-in to the beach theme), rock candy and swirled candy on a stick.
