{Kelly & Craig @ Isla Del Sol}

Kelly and Craig hosted their family and friends for a day of relaxation by the pool before getting ready for their wedding.  Kelly wore a beautiful lightweight lace dress with a shorter skirt underneath and a flowy detachable train.  We did all their photos before the ceremony so they could spend as much time with their guests as possible.  Their kids were all part of the bridal party.  Kelly and Craig’s priest performed the ceremony that was decorated with bamboo chairs and white florals. The reception was decorated with tall and short cream and pink roses, candles, and pink satin bows around the chairs. The cake was perfectly placed in front of a window facing the beach and the sun was shining through.  There were 3 long stem white roses symbolizing their family members who could not attend. As well as a white rose boutonniere that was for Kelly’s oldest son who could not attend because he is serving in the military.  The rest of the evening was very relaxed and just a good time of hanging out and dancing! Congrats Kelly & Craig!! xoxox

{Emily & Dylan @ Isla Del Sol Yacht and Country Club}

Emily had sweet messages embroidered on handkerchiefs for her mom, Dylan's mom, and a special on for Dylan.  Emily's something borrowed and something blue was a beautiful aquamarine ring that was her grandmother's. The lace and blush bridesmaids' dresses coordinated perfectly with Emily's lace accented gown and the guys grey tuxes with blush ties. Dylan's cousin from NY flew in florals from NY, LA, and Japan, they were absolutely gorgeous!  After they became the official Mr. & Mrs. Hubbard it was off to Isla Del Sol for photos. They even had a caravan of golf carts waiting for us, which was so fun and hilarious.  As we were pulling away one of the groomsmen shouted "best wedding ever!".  The reception was decorated with gold and silver mercury glass, and as the sun was setting the lighting in the room set the mood for the party.  They had cookie favors that look just like Emily & Dylan and their signature cocktails were The Bubbly Bride and Love Ya Bunch Punch.  You could definitely feel the love and happiness all their friends and family have for these 2!  Congrats Emily & Dylan!! xoxoxo

{Jillian & Lee @ Isla Del Sol}

I love the color palette Jillian and Lee chose for their waterfront wedding. The guys wore different shades of blue ties to match each of the bridesmaid’s dresses.  They also wore some pretty fantastic socks, the guys that is:-) The forecast said 100% chance of rain but there was not a drop to be seen!  They had steel drums playing tropical island music, and sunglasses for all their guests to wear.  Jill's Mom, Betsey, drew the photos of each member of the bridal party to decorate their program which was also a fan.  During the ceremony Jillian and Lee tossed shells into the ocean, then for the recessional all the bridal party and guests did as well.  Jillian and Lee had a little surprise for the bridal party.  Before the wedding, they had buried a bottle of whiskey on the beach.  After the ceremony they dug it up and shared a swig with their bridal party. The ballroom was beautifully decorated with hues of blue. The tables had glass vases with beautiful flowers and floating candles. The tables were each named after their favorite movies..."Meet the Parents, Father of the Bride, The Hangover, Bridesmaids, I love you Man, etc...." Jillian and Lee met while getting their PhD's in Mathematics at University of Florida, but Jillian is from Ohio (Cleveland to be exact:-) so there was a little north and south rivalry with some O-H-I-O ing and gator chomping! Gerry, Jill's Dad, gave a beautiful toast to his daughter and new son in law. The groom's cake may have looked just like a UF Gator cake, but Jillian sneakily had it made with Ohio State colors on the inside. Lee was quite surprised to see scarlet and gray layers when they cut it!  It was the perfect and most fun day!  Congrats Jillian and Lee! xoxoxo
