Happy Monday! This is a very big week for us here at SW…. we’re off to Vegas and NYC all week AND our BlogSite is set to launch any day now!  Stay tuned for all the details.  For now, enjoy some inspiring wedding goodness…

Ana + Scott’s wedding was, in a word, magical! From photographer, Kiri: “Anna and Scott have known each other for years, and when they got engaged, they knew they wanted an intimate celebration that reflected who they are as a couple.  These are our favorite weddings to photograph: intimate, creative, fun weddings where all the details are meaningful and everything surrounding the big day are infused with the couples’ personalities.  From Anna’s custom made colorful gown, to how they began the ceremony by walking down the aisle together, to the easy-going and warm feel of the evening – it was a lovely wedding!”   The wedding was held outdoors at {Garfield Park Conservatory}.  Floral design by {April Joy Events}.  Thanks to Brett and Kiri of {Pen Carlson Photography} for sharing these amazing images with us.

Check back shortly for Part II…

Don’t you just love this pristine venue? The reception was at the beautiful Bellview Park Green in Carillon Beach, Florida.  Event planning by Victoria from {Carillon Weddings}.  Victoria worked with the talented Christina from {Nouveau Flowers} and Donna from {Townsend Catering} to make this event spectacular.  To see more check out Paul’s {Blog} and Victoria’s {Blog}Happy Friday!

The weather on our wedding day was:  Absolutely amazing.  It was cooler than normal because of the recent hurricane weather.  There was not a drop of seaweed on the beach and the most amazing sunset for great pictures!
What was the design inspiration for your wedding?  RELAXED.  I wanted all of it to be beautifully comfortable and relaxed.  The florist did an amazing job completing everything just to my personality.
Favorite design element of your big day:  The reception. I was very excited about having a lounge to the side of the tent.  I wanted everyone to be comfortable.
Describe your wedding cake: I wanted it to be simple on the outside, yet full of different flavors on the inside.  It was beautifully decorated with beach accents and each layer was a different and unique flavor.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding?   HURRICANE IKE possibly hitting Florida 3 days before the wedding.  We had to have a “back-up” wedding in my hometown planned.  It was extremely stressful, yet a little exciting.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day?  When the reality hit me.  There I was, at the beach, with my best friends and family, and about to marry the love of my life!  AMAZING!
Scariest moment?   Again, Ike.  Having a hurricane possibly blow through your wedding tends to put all the other possible mishaps into perspective!
Funniest moment?   We had to move the reception site due to the hurricane.  During the middle of the reception, the sprinklers turned on.  There were men running everywhere trying to cover them.
What advice would you give to someone planning their wedding?   Do not plan a beach wedding during hurricane season.  Also, let your mother know constantly how much you appreciate her.
Best advice or most memorable comment someone made to you during the wedding celebration.  To ENJOY it.  A couple of people told me that they can barely remember their wedding because they were too caught up in unimportant details.  I really tried to focus on the present and soak it all in.
What’s next for you as a couple?  Well, right now we are just settling in.  He is building his medicine practice and we are enjoying being back in his hometown.
What are you looking forward to in the future?  Traveling together!  We have a long list of places that we want to go to.  We are hoping to go to Africa in the near future.

Congratulations to Ellen + Richard! We wish you at lifetime of happiness!

    I was delighted to work with such a fun family ! So much love surrounded the whole day. Ellen and Richard trusted us to do our best for them, and we all prayed really hard for Ike to "move on down the road." While the surf was too high for the ceremony to be on the beach, sunlight flooded the greens for a perfect day.
