What is more fun than a wedding between two people who truly love each other? A beachside destination wedding. Casey & Stephen allowed the natural beauty of the chapel and the surroundings take center stage at their wedding. With the scenic beauty of Alys Beach the couple kept the rest of the details of their wedding elegant, timeless, and romantic.
The Couple: Casey + Stephen Miller
Wedding Date: February 27, 2016
Location: Alys Beach (Santa Rosa Beach, FL)
Tell us “your story” in a few sentences. Stephen & I met our sophomore year at the University of Alabama. Our first date was a Tacky Christmas party and we had a great time! We were together ever since.
Pick three words you would use to describe your wedding. Elegant, timeless, and romantic.
Tell us a little bit about your aesthetic. I wanted everything to be simple yet elegant. The colors of the flowers were mostly white, with a hint of soft pink, and lots of greenery. The bridesmaids wore soft grey dresses. I wanted everything to be neutral with lots of flowers and twinkle lights. The Seaside Chapel is so beautiful on its own that I did not want to add much to it. We brought in a few small flower arrangements, but other than that we let the chapels beauty shine through! The reception was held in a large one-room tent with a clear roof. I wanted everyone to feel included in the party! On one end we had the band and dance floor set-up and on the other end we had the bar with a seating area full of comfy armchairs and couches. The clear tent top allowed for our guests to have see outside and enjoy a different tent experience.
What was your favorite detail from the day? My favorite detail was the reception tent and layout. It was so easy to get around and feel included from anywhere in the tent!
What is one thing you wish you would’ve known before you started planning your wedding? I kept really calm the whole time planning our wedding. We had the best vendors who made everything fun and easy!
Tell us why you love EOH custom paper lovelies! EOH was hands down the BEST. Everything from our save the dates to our wedding suite to custom thank you notes were top quality and stunning. I loved our save the dates, because they gave our guests all the details they needed to know about our destination wedding. I loved the map EOH designed for us of 30a- many of our guests commented on how helpful the map was to get a feel of 30a. EOH were so easy to work with and so sweet!
EOH would love to thank Casey (the beautiful bride!), the couples family, It’s A Shore Thing, and Paul Johnson Photography for documenting this lovely day! We were so thankful to be apart of this wedding and work alongside of your family to help you create your picture perfect day. We also loved the details in your Save the Dates and creating a map of 30a. Thank you for letting us be apart of your day and letting us walk alongside you in this new season of life! Congratulations!
