Bride Coraline's mother designed beachy invitations for her wedding in Islamorada, Florida. The paper with wedding details was rolled up and placed inside a glass bottle filled with seashells and sand, then packaged in burlap and tied with twine that also linked a name tag and small starfish charm.
To keep costs low, Georgia natives Kristen and Josh kept their wedding rentals at a minimum. A few rustic tables were made with planks made from fallen wood, refinished by a friend and set atop sawhorses, and vintage linens and baskets were placed around the grounds picnic-style.
This venue's laid-back setting and spectacular views of Crescent Beach were perfect for Sam and Ian's summer celebration, and let guests feel they'd been swept away to a private tropical beach. And although the original intention had been to keep the roof open for a summertime party under the stars, the covered upper deck provided a cozy room for the intimate evening.
