Before You Start Trippin’….

We all know about Trip advisor for desties.  But when choosing your room blocks and venues, check Trip Advisor first!  It is great to find out what other travelers are saying about your venue or the hotels where you want your guests to stay.  Some of the reviews may be a bit testy– but you have to take it as a grain of salt. The important thing is that you get a concept of what you might be in for. It is absolutely horrible to shell out hundreds and thousands of money and receive bad customer service or substandard lodging.  You may even be able to find some reviews from brides or wedding guests to make the review all the more applicable to your planning.  Trip Advisor also has forums where you can interact with other travelers about your specific area– great to get some unbiased opinions to help seal the deal.

A Lighter Shade of Pale…Pink

Pale Pink Wedding Dress Evelyne TalmanI think any bride who introduces color into her wedding garb is awesome. It takes a lot to do so– without looking garish or ridiculous.  That being said, there are some great designers out there who offer brides this option.  If you are truly daring, you can go with this blush rose beauty, featured left.  It is a Marissa Baratelli and is currently featured on Evelyne Talman’s website, a local boutique.  If you want to go a little less colorful, but still want to make an impact, you could add a colored sash to your gown in your wedding colors.

Eveylne also carries a number of beautiful Mother of the Bride dresses as well as Faviana (the designer I would wear around the house just because, if I could).    The next time you are in the area, please visit!  They are located at:

Jacksonville’s Been Captivated!


If you haven’t noticed by now, I love Scarlett  of Captivating Studios.  She’s beautiful, she’s an uber-talent and the girl can dress!  She also has great taste in desserts, but I digress. 

I have always been in awe of Scarlett’s great gift ever since she started as a videographer. I am so very happy to see that the rest of Jacksonville (and the world) is getting a chance to see her work!  Scarlett was recently featured in the Florida Times Union for her gorgeous work of “Dress Trashing”.    You may have even seen her as the featured photog at Mark Eric’s Trash the Dress site.

 I am SO very proud of Scarlett and love that my brides love her too and we get to work together! She does come up to our area, so check her out for your St. Simons or Jekyll Island wedding.

Congratulations, Leah and Jason!

I absolutely LOVED this wedding. It was such a pleasure working with Leah’s mom  through out the past year, but seeing Leah and Jason interact, was awesome.  Just the simple things– a quick laugh or secret, dancing, small talk.  You can tell there is such a strong love between them. 

Their beautiful wedding was held on Saturday at the Crane Cottage at the Jekyll Club Hotel.  We all braved the heat (“little” brother Eric included…who swears that  venomous bee attacked him.  One of my favorite go-to-groomsmen ever!) and kept the party going until 1 am to celebrate the union of such a lovely couple.  The only moment that topped the Auburn fan fare at the groom’s cake cutting was the stunningly romantic dance between the Best Man and Groom to “Forever Yours“.  A real tearjerker (and side splitter)! 

Leah and Jason– all the best to you!  We hope that you continue to grow in the love and faith that you share in the many years to come in your marriage. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day.  The uber-fabulous Eric and Adrienne Delaforce were the photographers for this wedding, so stay tuned for pictures! 

Congratulations to Beth and Blake!

Beth has to be one of the most creative brides I’ve come across in a long time. Her ideas for Jekyll Island’s Faith Chapel were absolutely gorgeous!  Going for a hot and baby pink theme, she incorporated some very sentimental and creative elements into her wedding as well (such as charms for the bouquets of her bridal party, a wish tree and a cotton candy machine on the dance floor!)

It was wonderful to see just how many people love and adored both Blake and Beth. Even as the tropical storm loomed in the distance, the festivities went on and on and the guests had a fabulous time.  Thanks Blake and Beth for allowing us to assist with your fabulous day!

GREAT Food AND Service– Georgia Sea Grill

If you are looking for an ab fab place to hold your bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner or just a delish bite to eat while on the island, please go see my friends at the Georgia Sea Grill!  Not only is the atmosphere just divine, but the service is impeccable.  I have had so many clients and their guests rave about the GSG on all levels.  If you are planning a special event there, just as for Sarah and make sure you tell her that Terrica sent you!

Congratulations, Tara and Kenny!

tara-and-kenny.jpgWe had such a ball with Tara and Kenny, and their families yesterday at the King and Prince.  Their sunset ceremony was beautiful– with Tara’s dad, who officiated the service saying, “Kenny, I remember our first golf outing.  One thing I remember is that you didn’t cheat.  A person who will cheat at golf will cheat at anything.  I knew then that I could trust you.  Not only as  a man but as a husband for my daughter“. 

Mr. Morford and I made a deal that being my fragile hormonal state, that he would do his best not to make me cry– but that came awfully close!  Tara and Kenny’s gathering of intimate friends and family had such a good time dancing and singing.  Within the few months of working with them and their vendors, we really looked forward to their wedding.  We were so very happy and privileged to be a part of the Tara and Kenny’s day!  Thank you guys for sharing it with us!

Congratulations, Harmony and Rob!

We had an awesome time at Harmony and Rob’s wedding yesterday at the King and Prince on St. Simons Island.  As you can see, Harmony was a beautiful bride. Rob and his guys were stunning as well and a lot of fun.  They braved the winds at Epworth by the Sea and partied like it was 1999 at the reception.

 The sweetest moment was when Harmony’s son gave her away.  Harmony had excellent ideas for wedding and they all tied together seamlessly– with gorgeous pink and ivory roses mixed in with a beach theme.

Working with this fantastic couple since September, we thoroughly enjoyed assisting in the planning and prep process.  Thank you Harmony and Rob for letting us share in your special day!

Congratulations, Cheryl and John!

Cheryl and John were married on the Riverfront Lawn at the Jekyll Island Club Saturday morning.  What made Cheryl’s wedding so very unique wasn’t her southern venue, but her southern attire!

Cheryl chose antique Southern garb for her bridal party a la Gone With the Wind.  Ladies were dressed like Scarlett O’Hara and the groomsmen donned “Southern Gentleman” attire. With beautiful white calla lillies and the sound of a beautiful sting trio playing, it was definitely a gorgeous sight into the past!

 Congrats, Cheryl and John! Thank you for allowing us to assist with your special day!
