Hide & Beau Seek: Modern at The Brice

So one day we were browsing Instagram, and found the coolest rainbow hair by Cadence Mefford at Salon Aqua and we knew we had to use Hope (the bride) as a model! Her hair is a cotton candy swirl of amazingness. We collaborated with Noi Tran, one of our favorite film photographers. Her work is breathtaking, soft, and intimate. We chose Val by Blush by Hayley Paige, one of our newest a line gowns, and man she is amazing! She has a soft organza skirt, modern white piping details, and an illusion neckline. We needed a venue that was modern and bright, and The Brice was perfect! It's one of our favorite hotels in Savannah, and has such gorgeous art, a fun pool, and rooms that make you feel like you are in luxurious heaven. I don't think there is a better match then some Hayley Paige and The Brice!

Whenever a bride asks for a hotel suite to get ready, we always reccomend the Juliette Suite! It features a private terrace with a pool view, and can accommodate up to six guests, so a great spot for you and your girls to get ready. It has gorgeous artwork, amazing lighting, and modern furniture. If you are having getting ready photo's we highly reccomend you think about the space you are getting ready in. You want one with ample lighting for the photographer, gorgeous backdrops for images (you, your dress, detail shots etc) and plenty of space! Even though it was rainy outside, the Juliette Suite was bright, and had plenty of light!

Hide & Beau Seek: Sunrise On The River

There is nothing quite like a sunrise over water. The sun sparkles on the blue water, turning it into a slight rainbow of colors, moving with the wind and current. It's really just so captivating! Danielle George woke up nice and early to capture one of our newest Rebecca Ingram gowns, Tara, at the Savannah Trade and Convention Center. The convention center is on the other side of the river, offering guests a unique view of Savannah. You always think of the Savannah river from River St. but seeing it from the other side is quite captivating! Our model was Kayla, who works at Parlor Blow Dry Bar (which is the best idea! What women doesn't love an amazing blow dry after getting their hair cut?! Parlor lets you have that feeling whenever you want!) Kayla wore Tara, a sheath featuring cascading lace appliques, lace detail on the hem, and a v neck front and back. It has a little bit of sexy with the shape, but still sweet and southern and oh so feminine! And we paired it with an Adele Amelia veil, for extra length and drama. I love how it flowed in the wind so effortlessly! A huge thank you to Savor Savannah for recommending this spot (and giving us some great food at the shop!)

Lissette & Alex {Featured on 100 Layer Cake}

Sometimes you get a bride who's vision is so spot on with your company that you just click instantly! Lisette emailed us looking for a florist to make her boho dreams come true. She wanted a wedding that was free-people meets southern, with soft colors, whimsical feathers, lots of texture, and endless dreamcatchers. We used leather, lace, and lots of greenery to create a space that was intimate, inviting, and special. We made her bouquet large and lush, with lots of eucalyptus, garden roses and air plants. The bridesmaids had king protea in each, with large bunches of eucalyptus and a touch of ivory. 

This wedding has been featured twice this month! First up on 100 Layer Cake & Then on Wedding Wonderland. Make sure to check out the blogs to see more! 

After talking, we discovered our store carried her favorite gown, Winnie by Daughters of Simone! So not only did we do the flowers, we got to coordinate her day, and help her find her dream gown! She wanted a gown that was comfortable, had lots of lace, and fitted her overall vision. When she came to our shop, she only needed to try on a few gowns to see that Winnie was the one! And on the day of it fit her like a dream, and went perfectly with her flower and feather crown, long wavy hair, and golden makeup. 

When you have a boho goddess wedding dress, you have to have some awesome bridesmaids. Lissette chose gowns from Show Me Your Mumu (We are obsessed with everything they have!) The girls wore soft blush, that were so effortlessly chic, especially in the breeze. We had SO much fun doing the flowers for this wedding! We love using king protea and eucalyptus, so having both together was a dream come true. We kept the bridesmaids bouquets textured and wild like the brides, with touches of soft ivory roses. 

Her and her husband Alex live in Miami, but wanted to do a destination wedding here in Savannah! Her wedding took place at Roundhouse Railroad Museum. The ceremony was outside in a gorgeous open space, with a large brick wall as the backdrop. For the ceremony setup she wanted a backdrop that matched her overall theme. We created huge dream catchers (some as big as hula hoops!) to make one of a kind pieces that we hung from a birch arch. Their vows were handwritten, and so sweet! You could really feel the love they had for one another, and how special this moment was to them. 

Her reception took place in the blacksmith shop, a huge building that has brick walls and old machines. We created a welcome table and escort card display out of a teepee, and handmade escort cards on dream catchers. To keep the theme consistent, the table numbers were mini dream catchers with leather and feathers, and the farm tables were decorated with lots of texture. The table runners were soft fabric, with gold bottles, brass candlesticks, and endless greenery, flowers, and candlelight. Instead of a traditional photo-booth, they had the Bohobooth, a super fun trailer turned photo-booth out of Atlanta! Guests always love the Boho-booth, with it's fun props, cool atmosphere, and endless pictures!

Meet Michele at Body Oasis

If you follow is on Instagram & Snapchat you have probably seen us working out lately! We have teamed up with Michelle at Body Oasis to get our bootys beach ready! Her workouts are incredible, challenging, but so much fun! Seriously, I don't like working out (Adrienna here, Nicole loves working out haha!) but she makes it fun and is the best motivator. I already feel stronger, and leaner, and can't wait to see what amazing results we get! This is such a great way for brides to get tone before their big day, and feel amazing about themselves! Plus she can meet you anywhere, from your home to Forsyth park (where we meet up twice a week, 730AM!) I love the park atmosphere, the weather is always so nice in the morning, and I get to bring my dog Cooper! So Ivory & Beau ladies, meet Michelle!

I've been in the fitness industry for approximately 9 years. Over the years I have seen over 100 clients and with each one I have shared a special connection that has inspired me to keep training ALL who need me.  They need me not only as a trainer but as a friend they can count on.

Each person has a different way to find their motivation. I strive to put myself in that person's shoes to dig down and find out how to retrieve that motivation to reach their fitness goals. It hasn't been easy but with each person I learn something new, something that I can take with me to the next client.

I've been to them all, the "globo-gym" atmosphere, the studios, and even owned a studio myself. I've enjoyed seeing the different dynamics at each one and have been able to find my niche in training others. What I seem to have lacked was a way to get to everyone, I know I'm not superwoman but damned if I'm not trying!

I found that in people's lives it's sometimes impossible to find the time to get out of their work, their houses, their family responsibilities and that's when I had my epiphany. Why not become a "traveling trainer"? I had been brainstorming this idea for awhile and had so many doubts along the way. "Would people like this kind of training, will people be open to this"? The answer to many of these questions was "Yes". I have started my business here in Georgia and couldn't be happier with the turn out.

It's hard enough for people to make time to go to the gym, so why don't I come to them? I've trained at Forsyth Park, people's homes, and even people's work environments. It's been an amazing experience and I truly feel as though I am doing something special here. I enjoy helping others feel motivated to crush their fitness goals while still being a full time spouse, parent, and/or employee.

No need to pay a crazy gym membership fee in addition to having a trainer, pay one rate and have me come to YOU! I honestly love going from place to place as I find myself getting bored of one location as do some clients. It's fun coming up with different "rigs" to put my TRX bands on and it's awesome being outside. As soon as I leave you go on with your daily routine, don't worry about getting back into your car and going back home or to work.

REMEMBER, your Fitness Consultation is FREE!

Let's chat about the changes you want to see in YOURSELF. To be the best spouse, parent, and/or employee you can be you have to make YOURSELF your FIRST priority!!

Can I get an Amen?
