Gail and Justin met at University of Tampa. I love their engagement story, he totally surprised her and proposed as they went on a helicopter ride in Montreal! They said their vows on a chillier than normal day on the beach here in Florida but so gorgeous! Gail looked beautiful in her custom designed gown and Jimmy Choo's. Justin and the boys had matching shoes and random fun socks. Justin and his best man have known each other since 6th grade, they grew up outside of Philly together. The colors were navy with lime green accents and actual limes! They had a custom step and repeat monogram for their guests to have fun being photographed with as well. Now, Gail happens to be very good friends with two of our other brides, Lauren in fact was one of the bridesmaids so she and Chris might look familiar:-) So we knew it was going to be a fun party and it was as you can see starting with the bridal party entrance. There was a hilarious picture in the bathroom from Gail's bachelorette party. They went on a cruise and on formal night Gail wore a $10 thrift store dress and the girls wore some pretty fantastic bridesmaid dresses as well. Phase 5 rocked the party and everyone danced the night away. Congrats you two it was amazing to be a part of! xoxox
We are so excited that our "Americana" wedding concept photo shoot was on Every Last Detail blog for Labor Day Yesterday!! Fun, creative, and out of the box is what we love!! We were going for vintage all American and wanted to show some really fun and unique details all in red, white, and blue. Jessica, from Simply Divine events built the concept with vintage Coke crates, a chalk board menu, an old window made into a mirror for the seating chart, and their guest sign ins were starts hung from burlap string. A little creative spin on cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes with creme cheese frosting in mason jars. Continuing on with the red white and blue was the bouquet and stationary down to the bride and groom chair tags. Nikki looked amazing with the soft and subtle look that Marissa, from Collective Creations created for her hair and makeup. She looked amazing in the lace gown from Anglo Couture that was accented with a belt and broach. With David in his wranglers, boots and belt buckle, a perfect match!!
We had the privilege of working with the Anglo Couture team on creating the look for their brand new 2011 line! I love the different little details that makes each of these gowns unique and gorgeous. We wanted an elegant, but urban feel so a simple red wall was the perfect backdrop. Anglo Couture has also expanded their line with accessories, bridesmaid, and flower girl dresses. Check them online for the entire collection!
