Highlights of the day:
A surprise love letter from my husband, seeing how beautiful the bouquets turned out, being surrounded by 60 of our closest friends and family, marrying my best friend.
Some of my favorite details:
Our fan programs … the groomsmens’ striped socks … my “something blue” anklet … wearing the same earrings my mom and sister wore on their wedding day … my camouflage garter (my husband is a big hunter) … our “In lieu of a party favor” cards (we used one of our engagement photos and explained that we were donating to the cancer organization that helped my husband when he was sick) … our engraveable guest book … and our wedding cake that had real shells on it.
Advice you’re glad you took:
Using lots of hairspray – it was REALLY windy but my hair stayed in place all day … Not wearing extremely tall heels (mine were 2.75 inches and I kept them on all night) … Strolling hors d’oeuvres versus self serve (so much more elegant).
Advice you’d like to give:
For destination weddings, try to go to the resort at least 6 months prior to the wedding to see the venues, meet the wedding planner and get a vision. We did this and it helped tremendously.
Best part of the whole wedding day: Dancing all night with my husband, friends and family.
Thank you Chad and Vicki–for sharing your day and the topical prettiness of your lovely, lovely wedding! You can see more from this beach destination wedding via photographer, Brian Khang.
