Beach Bliss

Finally, I get to share my secret vacation project!! For our five year anniversary, my husband and I decided to do a vow renewal on the beach. So what's a girl to do but sew up her very own vintage wedding dress!


We had a very intimate beach ceremony in Melbourne where we will be relocating to.

I actually have our original wedding vows but I forgot to pack them so we each wrote a letter and read them to each other.

It was crazy romantic!

I was always so bummed that I discovered vintage after my wedding and never got to do a vintage wedding so this helped me live out my dreams of being a vintage and pixie bride!

Charity K Photography came down to Florida to shoot us and it was a blast!

My dress is from a 1947 pattern. Don't worry! It's getting it's own post with even more beach photos!

Will obliged me by wearing a teal tie to match my accessories. It was actually quite difficult to find a tie in that shade!

I just had to have a bird cage veil and earrings with tiny seashells in them! I think I'm going to have to do a wedding accessory video!

It was super hard for me to pick photos to share with you because they were all so amazing!!

So now I'm sort of running out of things to say.

But that's ok because you're all distracted by the pretty pictures.

Oh, look, it's the end!
