Going to the Chapel....Destin Style!

My cousin, Ashley, is getting married next month in Destin! We are so excited to add Chris to the family. He is a great guy and a perfect match for Ashley! Last weekend we hosted a couple's shower for Ashley and Chris at my mom's house. Since they are saying "I Do" in the sand, we embraced the beach theme and ran with it! The party was a huge success and so much fun! Marina designed the invitations...and they were darling, of course!



Outdoor decor...we painted pillows with their names...


Tiki torches lead guests to the front door...


We filled an urn with fun beach items...


Ashley's new last name will be "Cooper"


Our bride and groom, Ashley and Chris! As guests arrived, we served them rum punch in plastic coconuts!


The yummy food table!


A cute sign on the food table...


We wrote on flip-flops to label all of the food...


Mom and I worked really hard on these cakes! They were delicious!


Hung from the kitchen chandelier...


More chandelier decor...


We wrote cute "love" sayings on the flip-flops...


Beverages...


Back patio decor....the lanterns are battery operated...very cool.


My beach babe...


We can't wait to be in Destin next month to celebrate Ashley and Chris' wedding! We leave for Destin 3 days after Josh gets back from Zambia. I'm counting down the days!

Congratulations Ashley & Chris!!!
