I recently teamed up with Alaina Bos Photography to be featured in the first “Vendor Spotlight” on her blog. We spent a beautiful morning shooting some of my most recent wedding invitation suites and details plus some new head shots.
Choosing and creating gifts for my maid of honor, bridesmaids and flower girl was one of my favorite things during wedding planning. Since I had been a bridesmaid in many, many weddings; I tried to think of gifts that could be used during the wedding weekend and beyond.
I purchased simple canvas totes then fancied them up by sewing two ribbons on the top and bottom seams plus added a monogram to the front of the bag. Then, I filled each bag with the following goodies and personalized them with a handwritten note and customized schedule.
This week has been an absolute blast exploring 30A and all of the cute beach towns in between including my favorite destination, Seaside. The quaint town is filled with adorable shops, restaurants and airstream food trucks all of which are just a bike ride away.
Besides catching some rays at the beach and pool; my favorite morning in Seaside begins with an iced chai tea latte from Amavida, followed by yoga at The Studio (thanks Laura for a great class!), then a juice from Raw & Juicy. I may just have to open Courtney Callahan Paper South!
I am spending the week with my family in sunny Watercolor, Florida (right next to Seaside), and feeling quite spoiled by all the warm temperatures, bright sun and soothing sounds of the ocean. This is our second trip as a family to the same location, but Michael and I took the opportunity to head out to a new beach town for a date night before everyone arrived for our vacation.
We chose Caliza Restaurant in Alys Beach which is this all-white, super-luxe resort community and had THE most amazing meal – red snapper for me and surf & turf for Michael based on a recommendation from our friends.
Since the nights are still super warm, I chose this easy-breezy hibiscus floral dress I snagged on super-sale from J. Crew; paired with my favorite white Kendra Scott earrings and a rattan purse also from J. Crew. It was the perfect, summery outfit for poolside dining.
I’ll be here on 30A for the entire week so let me know if you have any favorite destinations!
