Alyssa & Ryan- Soho South Cafe Wedding

You might remember Alyssa and Ryan from their super fun  and doggy filled engagement session we blogged! Well they are back again for the real thing this time! We were able to do planning, florals, and Alyssa even got her dress altered here at our shop!

We were so excited for Alyssa and Ryan's wedding day because we knew that it would be filled with their values of friendship, dinosaurs, and all around love. If we could handpick a couple, Alyssa and Ryan would totally be it! 

Their day was filled with the prettiest of details, from Alyssa's floral wedding gown, to gold dinosaurs, and American Flag everything! Alyssa and Ryan thought about the small details and their uniqueness shined through each detail. 

We love how the couple showcased the beauty of Savannah in their wedding portraits! The photos are filled with Savannah greenery and their happiness shows in every photo! WE LOVE FIRST LOOKS and this is such a great example of why! 

Alyssa and Ryan's Soho South Cafe ceremony was sweet and simple. Enough to pronounce their love to each other, but not long enough to make guests fidget in their seats. All eyes were on Alyssa and Ryan during the ceremony as they shared their love and friendship with their closest friends and family.

After their quick ceremony, Alyssa and Ryan invited guests for a short cocktail hour, while their ceremony space was quickly transformed into a dreamy reception space. 

Guests walked into an artsy and woodland reception filled with gold animals, wildflowers, and lots of greenery! Soho South was the perfect backdrop for A & R's fun theme. 

Guests signed the "guest skull" to give their best wishes and then grabbed a handmade coloring book for dinner entertainment. 

We love that Alyssa and Ryan had personal touches everywhere guests could look! From an American Flag to a pet filled cake topper. Their wedding is easily distinguishable from others, and thats why we love it!! 

We love all of the meaningful shots that Jessica Grenolbe Photography  caught! Alyssa and Ryan are truly best friends and you can tell by each and every photo!

Amber & Shawn

Amber was such a dream Ivory & Beau bride! She drove up from Florida looking for an experience she couldn't get in Jacksonville, and knew she wanted a gown that was more relaxed and bohemian for her outdoor wedding. The minute she tried on Hannah by Ti Adora, she knew it was the one. It features a sheer illusion top, lace detailing, and the prettiest blush color! Once she got the gown from us, she knew she wanted us to do the flowers too! We went down to Florida, and created her vision of blush, burgundy, and lush greenery. Her bouquet was one of my favorites we have done, especially with the hanging ribbon! 

Amber and Shawn got married at The Casements, overlooking the Halifax River. Their ceremony and reception both took place outdoors, with cafe lights lighting up the dancefloor, and the most gorgeous sunset (that made for incredible pictures!) A huge thank you to the couple, who let us be apart of their special day!

Creative Bridal Shower Ideas

Showering a bride is an important - and fun! - part of the wedding process. Showers prove to be a nice time to help equip the soon-to-be Mrs. with everything she’ll need for her home and they are also the perfect time to show your love and affection for the bride.

While these parties are a long-held tradition among the world of weddings, there is no shortage of creative ideas to help you personalize the party to fit the bride’s tastes and interests. It’s always fun to put a touch of flair onto a special celebration, so keep scrolling for some bridal shower inspiration!

 

Blast from the past

Peppering a shower with some cool vintage finds can be just what you need to make it feel unique and personalized. Plus, you can keep costs low by perusing thrift shops or tag sales for the perfect items. Use beautiful old vases to create centerpieces or old linens to adorn the tables. This will give the shower more character and will provide the bride with some mementos to take home and treasure forever.

Film inspired

Hey Hollywood! If you’re bride-to-be has a favorite movie or an actress that she idolizes, it could be fun to center her shower around that interest. You can set up a “concession stand,” decorate with famous quotes that tie into the theme, and even have someone put together a little movie trailer dedicated to the bride. This is an out-of-the-box theme that will be loved and appreciated without a doubt.

 

Pampering the Bride

Every bride needs some time for herself.  So pamper her and let her indulge in all of her favorite things… Donuts, cakes, cookies, flowers, or even a home spa day will guarantee to put a smile on her face and sure do make it more fun to celebrate.

 

Something sparkling

Some people are drawn to glitz, glam, and sparkle, so why not indulge the star-studded bride in her favorite style? Decorate everything to be as radiant and sparkly as possible, even ensuring that the drinks are “sparkling” and bubbly. The bride is sure to feel like a million bucks at this shower, and the guests will love it too!

Book bonanza

For a bride that always has her nose in a book, turn her shower into a library to make all of her dreams come true! Besides kitchenware and other home accessories, a couple that enjoys books will want to equip their home with those, too. Send out library cards or bookmarks as invitations, have every guest bring their favorite book as a gift, and allow everyone to make custom bookplates as a shower game and you have yourself a bookish themed party!

 

Honeymoon shower

If the bride-to-be already has an abundance of home items or just would appreciate an out-of-the-box shower, throw her one for her honeymoon! If she’ll be visiting the islands, give the party a tropical theme or make it a luau. There are so many great directions you could take this idea in, and providing the bride with all of her vacation necessities will make her even more excited for the big trip.
