Purple Canada Wedding LOVE

Sunlit kisses and deep purple details make this wedding stand out in the crowd. Not only is the inside of the Museum of Nature breathtaking, the surrounding grounds make our heart skip a beat as well. The details that Barbara Ann Studios captured during this wedding are stunning but it’s the tender moments between the bride and her groom that really made us do a double (and triple) take!

Site Visit | Casa Monica Hotel Saint Augustine Florida

Had the pleasure of staying at the Casa Monica Hotel last week and it was really beautiful. We stayed for a few nights and had a visit with Noel Day, who is the Catering Sales Manager for the Hotel. Below are some on my personal pics as well as ideas and pricing.

I thought this was really cool.  Housekeeping left us a handwritten note under the door on our last night.

This is their outdoor space for ceremony and receptions I love the black chandeliers. Kessler-CasaMonica-Event-SultansPavillion-Lunch_TRB5543


They also are running this really cool special that if you book a wedding before December of this year you get a free honeymoon at any of their 10 locations nationwide. They call it “Honeymoon on Us”.

All in all, I like the venue and the staff is very friendly and helpful. If I had to say anything negative I would say the valet parking is pretty expensive so I would be concerned about that extra cost during my event.  The food was amazing. We ate at the restaurant and had room service. The customer service of the staff was top notch.

Unique Bridal Style: Tattoos and Two Toned Hair

What’s not to love about a bride who lets her personal style shine through on her wedding day? The very talented Alexandra Wallace photographed these lovely bridal portraits that we just can’t get enough of. Not only does this beautiful bride have tattoos, unique flowers, and a dress made for a goddess, she also has gorgeous red hair with pink peeking out of the bottom of her updo. Your wedding day is your special day to celebrate you and your significant other so be sure to let the real you shine though!

Amazing Wedding Shoes Under $50

For some brides, shoes that Carrie Bradshaw would be jealous of are the only shoes that will be considered for a wedding day. Other brides choose to push the Christian Louboutin’s aside to go for a more affordable shoe. If you want shoes that won’t break the bank but will still make Carrie and the gang proud, look no further than our favorite wedding day shoes under $50.
