Classic, simple, sweet, romantic, fun, beachy…. those were the words that Alice and Marcus used when we first asked them to describe their ideal wedding. After getting to know the two of them, we knew we had to add “chic” and “slick” to that list of adjectives. We planned and designed from across the US for a wedding in another county and I, for one, am very pleased with the results. So please, enjoy their classic, simple, sweet, romantic, fun, beach, chic, and slick wedding!
I’ve said it before… and I’ll say it again… Alice is beautiful! So is her wedding dress, shoes, earrings, rings, bouquet, everything…
Look at that incredible view…. if I were able to redo my wedding unlimited # of times, one of those weddings would definitely be by the ocean. We didn’t want to ceremony site to compete with the gorgeous view, so we kept it clean and classy with silver chiavari chairs, and a simple canopy swagged with white chiffon and adorned with small arrangements of purple orchids. The chair arrangements added a nice pop of color.
The programs were made into fans, a great way for the guests to keep cool on a hot day in Mexico! And look at the ring pillow, which Alice adorned with small shells. Perfect for a beachy wedding.
We decided to go keep the reception primarily white (can’t go wrong with the classic wedding color), and add color using lots of purple accents. A cocktail lounge was set up to the side. It was also swagged with white chiffon and lit up by purple uplights for a cool clubby/loungey feel
Escort cards/favors were seashell picture frames. Alice and I also toyed between the idea of using sand dollars or seashells as the actual escort cards. But ultimately decided on the frames because they could also be used as favors. Hey, when you’re traveling, the less you have to pack, the better! Due to Alice and Marcus’ love of traveling, tables were named after places they have been together, complete with a picture of the two of them at each city.
I kept my selection of pictures pretty tame here, but when I looked through all the pictures, believe me when I say they definitely had a great time and really partied it up!
Alice and Marcus, we really hope you feel your wedding was everything you wanted it to be. Congrats again to the two of you! Hope you’re staying warm in NY!!
