{Real Wedding} Eve & Don - DIY Beachside Extravaganza

It's a Shore Thing!

When I think of Budget Wedding Elegance and DIY Extravaganza, it looks exactly like Eve and Don's stunning turquoise and white beachside wedding. Captured by A Million Sighs Photography, Eve and company spent three days transforming a blank venue at Jupiter Beach Resort in Florida into a spectacular affair complete with every DIY wedding project possible. From edible favors to twinkle lights and lanterns, from their unique guest book to a final send off, Eve and Don prove that couples can indeed create a personal, elegant, detail filled wedding on a budget. 

Eve is a radiant bride in her layers of organza but what I love about her most is the playful side that comes through in these images. Elegant, graceful, yet completely herself - how a bride SHOULD be!

Calla Lilies make for a sweet, simple bouquet - unfussy and completely elegant, a perfect compliment to the DIY Budget feel of this seaside affair. This beauty was put together by Botanical Bliss.

Don and the guys look dapper in their white tuxes with a slash of turquoise, perfect for the Florida coast!

Eve chose mismatched bridesmaids gowns for the girls but kept them all the same color, a great trend that shows lots of personality. The wedding party has a cohesive look but different dress styles allows for lots of different body types, complimenting each maid individually.

Eve and Don did a fabulous job of maintaining the color palette throughout their entire celebration - from Eve's hair clip to her dad's bow tie, to the ombre wedding cake to yummy candy bar, table runners, chevron patterned napkins and chinese lanters - all pitched in to create a cohesive wedding look. 

Continuing with their beachside wedding branding, I love their unique guest book - a beautiful wooden surfboard.  A treasured memory for years to come I'm sure!
