Soft + Sophisticated on the Coast

We can’t imagine a fairytale any lovelier than this wedding, set on the Gulf Coast at the Watercolor Inn & Resort. Elizabeth and Michael’s plan for a dream wedding came to life with ethereal tented reception lounges, complete with slipcovered seating and pale, elegant flowers clustered in mercury glass containers, for the “garden by the sea” feel the bride envisioned. Guests wore their sunglasses at night–wedding favors from Blue Soda Promo–as they partied to music by Total Package. We’re so glad Paul Johnson Photography was there to take such gorgeous pictures, because words can’t do this event justice! From their first kiss as husband and wife–even though their pastor forgot to pronounce them!–to Elizabeth’s stunning Monique Lhuillier gown, this wedding is absolute perfection!
