A Beautiful Beach Wedding {Hopefully} on the Horizon

June 24, 2013

So, many of you may know, but some not. I am getting married! AHHH! It’s so exciting! Breon and I have been together for 3 years and I am excited to spend the rest of my life with him.

When we first got engaged, I was so excited because he captured it all on his glass. I must admit, I don’t remember the moment at all and if not for this video I would probably never really know how I reacted. I was just so shocked (also by the fact that Huff Po, Fast Company, and Mashable posted it to their websites).

Fast forward back to state side and reality, we are in planning mode. Both of us want to get the majority of the planning done soon. We both love to plan but would love to have the details solidified as soon as possible so we can just enjoy everything. We have been talking to wedding planners and looking at blogs! It’s been very fun!

I have been scouring pinterest for inspiration and keep finding myself on inspiration overload. There is just so much you can do (and so much money you can spend).

We are trying to keep this event as simple and casual as possible (and budet-friendly), as both of us realize this is about our marriage not just about a wedding.

But the wedding will be awesome, of course. 😉

Which brings me to my point. For you lovely ladies getting engaged, take a look at Style Me Pretty! It’s a fantastic website full of advice, inspiration, diy projects, and vendors. I have found it to be very helpful thus far. My favorite part: MOODBOARDS!

I won’t be doing a lot of moodboaring because I know I will just go crazy and never decide on colors, a look & feel, etc. So I have decided to just get a feel down. I love this one:

So, what do you think?

Should we do natural sea colors, like Khaki and Blue or something fun like coral and teal?

    Awwwww my fellow engaged lover! Video = so sweet! I love coral and real! If Shaun wasn’t so excited about red (his favorite color) those would have been mine! Can’t wait to see everything you do! So happy for you and B!

    I think its sometimes important to look at the colors of the reception hall (or restaurant) and go from there. I love a good pop of color!

    So, first I was going to say I like the natural colors until I started visualizing the teal and coral. I see teal bridesmaid dresses with coral sashes and bright flowers all around and mostly teal for the rest of the décor with pops of coral and white. Yep, that’s my vote. It’d be beautiful! Whenever you get into the detail planning, if you need any help with sewing or other crafty type stuff, I would LOVE to help. Can’t wait to see what you decide and I’m already looking forward to the big day!
