We're so thrilled to share this chic wedding from Pure 7 Studios with y'all! In our opinion, it's a beautiful representation of a modern yet simple beach wedding full of all the fun things we love. Get ready for fabulous fashion, amazing bites, a great live band and gorgeous views of the beach.Lauren and Brett met back when they were in high school and dated throughout college at Auburn University. They both moved to Destin after graduation to begin their careers and have adopted an outdoorsy Floridian lifestyle full of fishing, hunting and lots of beach going.
From Lauren, "The beach is where you will find us on most any given weekend in the summer. One day after work, Brett and I packed up the fishing gear and our dog, Bandit, who is also a beach bum. We were enjoying the sunset and I turned around and Bandit had a sign hanging from his collar that said, 'Will you marry my Dad?' "
A girl pictures her proposal countless times and this really was a day to remember. After Brett dropped to one knee and put the ring on, we both cried and took in the moment. The next thing I know Brett's friend was running down the beach toward us. He was trying to hide behind a group of sunbathing ladies to get a good picture and the women thought he was a stalker and kept telling him to go away. After the ladies realized what was going on we all had a good laugh.
The inspiration for our big day was really focused on what Brett and I love most: family, good food and music. We wanted it to be like a big outdoor dinner party on the lawn. We hired Trotline, our favorite band from college, and they really set the mood for the evening by playing all of our favorite songs.
For the flowers and decorations, we tried to mix our love for the woods and the beach. We kept things simple and fresh with woodland ferns, black lanterns, monogrammed silver cups, white candles and white linens.
My favorite memory of the day was just watching my new husband smile. From the smile he had on his face when I walked down the aisle, until the last song played at the reception. It was perfect and I couldn't ask for more.
Pure 7 Studios was by far the best crew to work with. Our wedding video truly captured the event and I relive the day everytime I watch it. The pictures and video are keepsakes we'll have forever.
Don't you just adore Lauren's amazing gown? Seriously, gorg. Congrats, you two!
