Silver and Grey Wedding Decor

When we first saw our St. Augustine bed and breakfast, it was painted grey. Between then and the time that we purchased it in 2010, the original owners had painted the inn a soft buttery yellow. But there were still lots of grey accents–like the floors, and stairs, and some of the spindles. That’s why … Read More

Tiffany Blue Wedding Decor

Tiffany blue is such a beautiful color, and it lives easily with many other colors. Add pink and it’s sweet and girly, add a citrine green and it’s a shot of spring. Add brown and it’s a modern masculine statement. We had a wedding last weekend and paired it with burnt orange flowers, for a fresh … Read More

The hub and I got married at my family’s church (I have pictures of my great-grandmother getting married there), and then … Read More

When I got married, wedding cakes were white. The cake was white, the icing was white and the decorative icing was white too. Sometimes, if you were crazy (and I was) you added a little color in a fruit filling between the creamy white layers (I opted for raspberry to cut the sweetness a little). … Read More

Beach Wedding: Use What You’ve Got for Photography

One of my favorite photos at any wedding is the shot of the wedding rings, dress and jewelry. It’s a great opportunity to evoke the mood of the day by focusing on the details. This photo is from a beach wedding in St. Augustine at our Beachcomber Cottages. The Oceanview cottage has a beautiful piece of driftwood on … Read More

Beach Wedding: Not just Neutrals

I’ve gotten so many comments on the colored beach decor I shared yesterday (thanks to everyone who repinned it from our Pinterest board!), I thought that I’d share a shot from another recent event with a colorful beach theme. Shannon and Dave got married with us in June. They rented our entire inn, and planned … Read More
