{Lauren & Kyle @ Carlouel Yacht Club}

Lauren and Kyle’s wedding was casual and fun with lots of special custom details! Lauren’s light and flowy gown was custom order from Australia and the perfect dress for the beach.  Lauren’s mom made all the hangers for the dresses and the letter H with seashells from the beach Lauren grew up on. All the girls helped Lauren get into her dress and some of the sweetest moments were with her mom.  The girls wore navy, knee length dresses with pockets and the guys were in navy pants, white shirts, and coral belts with seashell boutonnieres.  Their beach ceremony was decorated with simple palm leaves, sunglasses for their guests and a place for everyone to leave their shoes.  A steel drummer played as everyone got seated for the ceremony.  Lauren looked so pretty and excited and she walked down the long wood path to meet Kyle at the end of the aisle.  Her brother in law officiated the ceremony and her aunt and cousin played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the ukulele.  It was a perfectly clear and white sandy beach day!  Their place cards were tied with little life preservers and they had a white monogram for everyone to sign.  Lauren and Kyle met in Chicago so their cake had a Chicago Bears symbol surrounded by mini key lime pies.  From the moment they entered the reception until it was over was just full of sweet moments, laughs, and even a few happy tears.  Congrats Lauren and Kyle!! xoxoxo

{Logan & Kevin @Carlouel Yacht Club}

Logan and Kevin's wedding had a coastal, chic, style with gray, pink, and green accents and my favorite, succulents:-)  Kevin is a sheriff and met his best man, Rob in police academy and I will say Rob is probably the best "best man" we've worked with:-)  Kevin's cuff links were even sheriff's badges.  They guys had some fun doing super hero randomness.  Logan looked so pretty in her lace gown.  Her girls were in sage green and the flower girl, Riley, wore Logan's sister Jordan's first communion dress and it fit her perfectly!  We did first look and photos beforehand on the beautiful dock out back.  Their ceremony and cocktail hour was on the beach and they had a pretty candlelight reception.  Lots of dancing and some serious cotton eyed joe moves. Congrats Logan and Kevin!!!!!!  xoxoxo

{Michelle & Bo @ Carlouel Yacht Club}

Michelle met Bo in high school, his family moved here when he was a sophomore.  Fast forward several years later and when she moved to Dallas Bo was the only one she knew who lived there, so she contacted him and the rest is history!  Coral was the choice of color for the day and Michelle totally rocked it with her coral high heels!!! The ceremony almost got rained out, and Bo made an executive decision to get everyone out there before the rain came.  Once everyone was seated and Michelle walked down the aisle there was a rainbow in the sky and the clouds dissipated into perfect weather.  Instead of doing the typical candle lighting or sand ceremony, they did a lock box instead.  Michelle and Bo wrote a letter to the other and each placed their letter and a bottle of wine in the box and locked it.  In 5 years, they will open the box, drink the wine and read the letter the other wrote to them!  LOVE THIS IDEA!!  Carlouel was accented with white florals and coral linens, and crystal.  Her mom actually made all the cupcakes and they were in little boxes for the guests to take one with them as well.  Bo's fraternity brothers serenaded Michelle and everyone had an amazing time including us:-)  Congrats Michelle and Bo!!!! xoxoxo

Real Wedding: Melissa + Brian @ Carlouel Yacht Club


Stunning. That's the perfect word to describe Melissa and Brian's wedding day. He surprised her with flowers while she was getting ready. She surprised him with a Georgia Bulldog grooms cake. It was exactly how it should be, perfect. You could feel the joy and love the Melissa and Brian have for each other and their friends and family. I got to work with my favorite officiant, my husband:-) He likes people to laugh at him and the crowd was definitely laughing when, during the blessing he prayed that the George Bull Dogs would triumph over the Florida Gators since Tebow graduated. Here's a little taste of their amazing day! Congrats Melissa and Brian it was such an honor to be a part of your day!!
