Backyard weddings are one of our favorite genres. They’re personalized and cozy and dripping in laid back elegance. And if that backyard happens to be mere feet from the ocean, consider it a whole new level of awesome. This photo shoot is oceanfront beauty paired with chic modern details and the idea of a casual beach house get together. Conceptualized and crafted by Lavender & TwineCassidy Rae Events and These Bud’s A Blooming, these images will have you rethinking that backyard affair and maybe moving it seaside.




From Lavender & TwineThe inspiration for this modern and romantic shoot was sparked by an incredible tiled wall–a wall accenting a one of a kind modern beach house. We wanted to help couples think outside of the box, and inspire a fresh take on a modern beach wedding. With a mixed palette of neutrals, greens, and whites with pops of oranges and gold, this is the perfect combination for a modern yet elegant wedding.

The stunning floral arrangements were provided by These Buds A Blooming. Allie put something together more gorgeous than I ever imagined. I mean, did you see that bouquet?! The soft textures in the arrangements combined with the edginess of the succulents and pops of color are a perfect fit with this modern vibe.

Incredible linens were provided by La Tavola. The textured grey linen cloth was the perfect anchor for the table design with dishware provided by Town and Country Rentals. The modern print napkins added a little something extra special. The custom silverware gave the perfect balance of modern elegance.

The cake was provided by The Sugar Lab with a last minute placement of an air-plant as the cake topper. It was the perfect finish to the intentional imbalance of the cake. The use of geometric shapes and blocks made this cake truly something special.

Our gorgeous bride looked amazing in a Paolo Sebastian gown that continued the grey palette through the wardrobe. Crystal Robinson Makeup did an amazing job styling the already stunning brides hair and makeup.

The time has come to prepare for your wedding. This is the day you have been waiting for and everything needs to be perfect. Knowing and finding “perfect” is the easy part. Paying for it however, is not. Is it possible to get what you desire on your budget? This article will help you to spend efficiently on your wedding.

If you’re taking care of the food yourself, shop at a wholesale store, like Costco. You will get more food for a better price if you shop wholesale. Think about asking friends to help you out with food costs.

Personalize the wedding so that it reflects your personalities, and that of your relationship. Pick a theme that relates to who you are as a couple!

Purchasing a wedding gown online can save a lot of money. If you decide to go this route, purchase the dress early so you will have time to get it altered. However, you should figure in the cost of alterations when calculating your savings. Figure in this additional cost while making your budget.


Choose catering with an ethnic theme to spice up your reception! Chicken, steak and such are served at weddings all the time. Why not do something different? Variety makes things interesting and will ensure you have a memorable dinner!

The most important thing when considering marriage is the person you will be marrying. This is a huge commitment, and rushing into things for the sake of being married may be catastrophic. Take care to consider the person’s characteristics–both the things that you love about them and the aspects that are challenging.

Incorporate small decorative elements into all your wedding decorations. Have a ribbon used on your bouquet mirrored on your centerpieces, or in your gown, or even in your hair. The little details like this help you pull all of the various aspects of the wedding together into one coordinated event.

Look at the portfolios of any makeup artist you are considering for your wedding day. This will help you to rule out make up artists whose styles do not mesh with your own. Make sure that the style matches your vision. You don’t want to be stuck with a bad makeup artist.

TIP! Don’t forget about transportation! If anyone needs a ride to or from their hotel for the event, you should arrange limos or taxis. This is the right thing to do if you’re serving alcohol at your reception.

When choosing a makeup artist, look at their past work. It would certainly ruin your day to have you and your bridesmaids looking harsh in makeup that does not suit the colors or the styles you have chosen. Make sure that this is the style you desire. You don’t want to find yourself with makeup that doesn’t appeal to you right before you are about to start your wedding.

You need to provide the DJ at your wedding with some songs you want to hear, but you also need to give him a list of all the songs you do not want to hear on that day. Perhaps it’s heavy metal, or country music, or even a previous lover’s “special song”. Let the DJ know to avoid any cringe-worthy moments at your wedding!

If you want to dance during the reception, make sure there is enough room! Nothing is as bad as getting crammed into a tight area like sardines when the guests around you are dancing, so clear out any furniture necessary to give space to those wanting to groove.

Fashionable brides can add a touch of luxury to their bouquet by applying some sparkle through the use of Swarovski crystals, diamonds or rhinestones. You can use small pieces of costume jewelry, heat-fixed or adhesive crystals, or perhaps a treasured heirloom. Make sure you stay consistent with these decorations in cut, color and dimensions so it goes well with what you are going to wear.


Instead of paying for a pricey cake, look into mini-tarts or cupcakes. These arrangements are convenient and affordable. Guests can even take a cupcake home.

When having pictures taken, don’t force guests to wait. Get as many pictures as possible before the ceremony. In order to reduce the length of time that the guests need to wait for the bride and groom to arrive at the wedding reception, the bride and groom should also be photographed with their parents in advance.

If you are having a destination wedding, surprise your guests with a basket chock full of goodies delivered to their hotel room. You will want to include useful items such as a disposable camera, tourist map that shows fun places in the local area, sunglasses and a hat. Another nice gesture is to include a restaurant guide, since people do need to eat after all.

It may sound odd but it might be fun if you ask your family if they would like to join you on the honeymoon as well. Hotels tend to give discounts when guests stay for a longer period of time. Not only will they have a great day to remember, but also a great vacation too.

TIP! Have a mid-afternoon wedding reception. Three or four o’clock is ideal.

You’ve finally landed the soon-to-be spouse of your dreams, which begs the question of how you can create an equally perfect wedding. You want perfection, but you don’t want to go into debt achieving it. Within this piece you have gained some great advice that can help you plan your wedding and keep your budget in line. Use them wisely and enjoy your big day.

If you find the right person, you won’t need to get married more than once. Marriage is a great time and the wedding should be planned in advance. Use the helpful tips below to plan the perfect wedding.

Should you want to cater the food yourself, look to wholesale stores like Sam’s. When you shop this way, you can buy your food cheaper than at regular retailers. You may even ask for help with food costs from family or friends.

Don’t starve yourself to fit in your wedding dress! Like any athlete will tell you, too much weight loss too quickly can result in being light-headed and dehydrated. You definitely don’t want to end up fainting on your big day. Rather, get a dress with an integrated corset so that it can be easily adjusted.

Are you bringing in food yourself to your reception? Visit a wholesale store to stock up. If you shop wholesale, you will be able to purchase your wedding food affordably. See if your friends can chip in for food costs.

TIP! Online wedding gown purchases can be easy on your wallet, but give yourself enough time for alterations as needed. It is also important to realize that alterations can cost quite a bit of money.

Take the time to think about what you want to say in your vows since these words mean so much and will heard by all of your guests. Keep in mind the magnitude of the commitment that you are pledging and how each of you will be making sacrifices during your marriage. Write your vows so that they express your love for your spouse and remind you of why you love them.

Be certain that your reception venue has a good-sized dance area. You can make room by moving some chairs and tables around when it’s time to dance, just make sure you find enough space for people to get their groove on.

Sweet cupcakes are great alternatives to an expensive cake. Such ideas are great for their affordability, adaptability and ease of use. Guests may opt to grab a cupcake on their way out, using cute take-out style containers that are provided.

When you’re planning on who to give the speeches at your wedding, have them rehearse the things they would say in front of you so you can determine if everything they say will be appropriate. At a wedding, there is normally a collection of different generations present, and you need to remember that a joke that young people find funny may actually offend older guests.

TIP! Don’t forget about the transportation on your wedding day. Make taxis and limos available to transport people to their accommodations after the affair is over.

An ordained friend or relative can officiate your wedding. They can get ordained easily online. This can not only save you money, but can also add a touch of personality to your ceremony. Make sure to check with the local officials first to see if it’s legal in the area.

If you are looking for some local assistance for your wedding, have a look on Craigslist. Be certain to take the time to meet them and interview them before making any agreements or giving them money.

Ask to borrow something from a friend to wear on the day you get married. This helps you save money, look beautiful and will make your wedding day extra special.

Even if your gut tells you otherwise, you should never commit to a wedding photographer without considering several other options. You don’t want unsatisfactory wedding pictures. If you’d like to learn about the photographers around where you live, you can look to the Internet for reviews or ask people you know for references.

TIP! For destination weddings, a fantastic gift to give your guests is a basket full of goodies that is delivered directly to their hotel room. Include items that will be useful, like a tourist map, disposable camera, sunglasses, a hat, and pamphlets from fun places to visit in the area.

As an example, why not try a fusion menu with contemporary dishes that everyone enjoys? Change it up by including ethnic desserts, drinks, or any other foods that are being served.

Behave Appropriately

Dress any children attending your ceremony in comfortable attire. Use soft, loose fitting fabrics. Shoes should be broken in and comfortable. Paying attention to your children’s comfort can help them behave appropriately during the wedding. Uncomfortable children will be focused on fixing their discomfort and may fidget or engage in other distracting behavior. If your children are comfortable, however, they’ll be excited about participating in the wedding and behave appropriately.

Craigslist is a good place to check out local talent to assist with your wedding. Don’t pay any of your responders a penny until you meet with them personally, and always have your betrothed accompany you, for safety’s sake.

TIP! If you want to have multiple courses during your meal, give them some sweets and appetizers on every table to keep them busy as serving takes place. Why not look for sugar roses that match your wedding theme.

If your reception does not involve a sit down meal, hire furniture instead of traditional tables. Lounges, chaises, and even cushy sectional pieces can encourage greater interaction between guests. Plush seating is also conductive to a relaxing time, and is comfortable for those with mobility issues. You can also use your furniture to customize your space.

A wedding is both a joyful and a somber event. It is important to plan it with care and respect. Therefore, apply the advice you have learned to make it count.

The perfect printed linen is one of those small elements with a big impact. It takes the beauty of this modern beach wedding designed by Before I Do Events and adds a layer of chic so beautifully photographed by Carmen Santorelli. Seashells, modern beach lounging and lovely blooms by Isari Flower Studio – that’s what this gem is all about.

Beach Resort



From The Bride…I feel that Anthony and I are the epitome of ‘what’s meant to be will be’, and that theme shined through on our wedding day. We fell in love with our gorgeous beachfront venue, so we decided to take on the challenge of planning our wedding in just four months in order to secure our dream location. With the help of the amazing team at Before I Do Events and all of our incredible vendors, it proved to be no challenge at all, and everything easily fell into place just perfectly as it was meant to be, for the big day.

We wanted our wedding to be classic with romantic hints of vintage, and Parisian-inspired touches throughout. Most of all, we wanted the wedding to be ‘us’. From the wood planks that lined the aisle with the things we love about each other (how Anthony proposed), to our personally written vows, to our family-style dinner from one of our favorite restaurants, to our basketball themed grand entrance (yes, my husband dunked in his tux), to our delicious dessert bar – it was a night centered around everything we love, including each other and our dearest friends and family.

Love and genuineness filled the room, and we had a blast dancing the night away. We also made it a point to take some time out together to take it all in, which was great since time flew by. After the party ended and Anthony and I got back to our hotel, and we did an impromptu photo shoot on the beach, and we then found ourselves playing ping pong in our wedding clothes (then maybe or maybe not headed to Jack in the Box). It was the best, most perfect night because it was just so ‘US’.
