Sneak Peek: Seaside Chic

Jon & Gillian were married at Aqua at Bay Creek Marina! The wedding ceremony took place on the lawn overlooking the bay, and the reception above the restaurant. I cannot wait to introduce you to this couple and the wedding team!

Here is a look at the design that we created. It has a decidedly seaside feel without sand or sea shells (a request from the bride).

Nile lamour linen was our canvas and we painted with grapewood vine (looks like driftwood), air plants, succulents, reindeer moss, and phaelenopsis orchids. Then we set it aglow with tons of candles at varying heights!

For the ceremony we used capiz shell, manzanita, hydrangea, thistle, hanging amaranthus and cymbidiums in a palette of blues and greens - but more on that next time.

I took these pictures but we will have pro pics from the talented Echard Wheeler in the coming weeks - so check back!
