Alison and Cory were wed in a simply lovely ceremony in the romantic town of Seaside, Florida. Thoughtful details (the groom sent his bride a love note in a bottle!) made the most of an already beautiful beach town setting.
Says Alison, “I had ten bridesmaids, and it was important to me that they have just as much fun as I did. I stuck to a color scheme but ultimately let them choose what they felt the prettiest in.”
The bride’s bouquet consisted of white hydrangea and ranunculus, plus ostrich feathers for a little drama.
Why did you choose this location for your wedding? Seaside, Florida is a beautiful, relaxing beach town, and it was always our dream to have our guests stay in the pastel-hued cottages, walk the narrow streets with white picket fences, and make a vacation of our wedding weekend. Perfect weather and having everything within walking distance really made for the perfect wedding scene.
What was your favorite moment or part of the day? Walking down the aisle. (Alison) That day, we chose not to see each other up until that moment. My beautiful bride dressed in the perfect wedding dress. (Cory)
Did you include any traditions in your wedding? Our mothers lit candles at the altar, which we used to light a unity candle during the ceremony.
What was the best advice you received as a bride? In the early stages of planning, my fiancé and I made a list of what was important to us for our special day. During the planning, we revisited the list to make sure we were saying on track and remembering the important things.
Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day? We were blessed with perfect weather!
