What do you get when you mix coastal elegance and classic details? The most gorgeous wedding ever of course! This waterfront wedding is what dreams are made of.
Alex honed every detail down to the subtle, underlying theme of her wedding: water reflection! Who needs a nautical-themed wedding when you’re brilliant enough to create inspiration from water? Subtle details such as mirrored centerpieces, reflective signage, bright silver chargers, and a beautiful sequined lace dress; all illustrated the light reflection of water.
Did I mention that a great deal of this gorgeous decor was crafted by Alex’s very own family and friends?!
“This was the most special part of the whole thing. Since my mom (a phenomenal flower arranger by hobby) did the centerpieces, she called upon family and friends to help her do all the final table arranging on Friday before the wedding. Aside from the gorgeous lighting, my mom and her volunteer crew made the reception venue come to life with all the flowers, plants, and sparkling elements. Additionally, our friend and officiant, Larry Ryan (who is a talented artist on the side) offered to do all the writing for our seating arrangement sign, as well as some other mirrored signage. I re-purposed my mom’s old gold mirror by spray painting it a shimmery pearl white. Larry then added all 150 names and table assignments.”
Alex had a vision and she knew just who to count on to execute it. This is where Lady Luxe Beauty came in! Taking all of Alex’s details into consideration, we crafted a look that suited the classy, yet contemporary look she was after.
Before delving into creating her look, we asked an array of questions to best understand her personality, preferences and vision. Alex shared that she typically wears her hair down and her everyday makeup palette is very neutral, consisting of basics such as moisturizer, light foundation, blush, eyeliner and mascara. This ultimately showed us that she isn’t afraid of makeup but prefers a natural look. Alex explained that the details of her wedding were simple and classic, which translated into the perfect ingredients for her hair and makeup.
Alex truly made each aspect of her wedding incredibly gorgeous. Even her friends are stunning! I’m still questioning if these are really her friends or hired models! I mean, look at these ladies!
Here are some behind the scenes photos we snapped throughout the day of the ladies as we worked our magic:
Alex’s vision truly came to life and we had so much fun helping her achieve it! We are so honored to have worked with Alex and been part of her impeccably crafted vision. Thank you to all the other vendors who also helped make this day so beautiful and special.
