Pineapple bowling on the beach, anyone?! While this oh-so-Southern twist on a cocktail hour staple has to be my favorite element from today’s wedding inspiration, there is so much more to love! The team at JLeslie Designs blended coastal and traditional Southern style together effortlessly, from the monogrammed details to the framed family photos to the oyster-topped cake. Take a peek below, and let me know your favorite part in the comments!

Big hugs to Marianne Lucille for these photos!

From Jenna Coleman of JLeslie Designs:

In planning for a summer styled shoot, we noticed that few seem to take advantage of the beach landscape that is so close to us here in Savannah. It makes for the perfect wedding backdrop, though it is often only chosen for the ceremony. We decided to plan our shoot for the dunes area just before the flat of the beach, but with the lighthouse in the background. We wanted to incorporate Savannah Vintage Rental’s unique pieces to really create a sense of a room in such a vast setting. We went with the Hayes gown by Sarah Seven because of its feminine feel and movement, perfect for the breeze of the beach. We incorporated oyster elements in the invitation design, and from there, we decided to do oyster place cards and use oysters as a cake topper to tie in the concept. I wanted any of my wood signage to have similar tones as driftwood to create a natural look. This shoot was a joy to design, a dream to work with these vendors, and a blast to model in!

    The coconut pineapple bowling is too cute!! Your wedding’s location lends itself to instant personalization opportunities. Thinking of ways to inject that personality into features you already know you’ll have – like lawn games – is a great way to engage guests.

    This shoot was so fun! I had an amazing time getting everything together and working with all the vendors involved. This shoot definitely has lots of that laid back southern charm personality to it. Thank you again for featuring the shoot on your beautiful blog!
