Holly and Jay started their wedding day by walked over from the Sand Pearl with their guests over to the beach site.  It was only 2 blocks away and the weather was beautiful.   The bride and groom decided not to have a wedding party and they walked down the aisle  together  to “Canon D”.
Holly choose a periwinkle tulle with white on the canopy and starfish hung by raffia on the chairs.
The groom wore khaki linen shorts and a light blue shirt.  Bride was in a simple white sundress that fit the beach wedding day.

E & S kiss & sunsetE & S the kids walking outE & S sunset and romanceJuly 29th and the day is gorgeous.  The bride chose a tangerine orange tulle to match with her bouquet.  Her dress, as you can see had layers of ruffles and a purple sash with large flower detail around her waist.  The colors popped and made her combo a hit.

Her bridal party consisted of her daughter, Kimberly as the flower girl and Landin,  grooms son,  was bestman and ring bearer.  The couple had just their close family there which made it extra special.

The bride walked in with Nora Jones singing “Come Away with Me” .  Photography by Stephen Rudd and an amazing sunset by God!E & S feet

The bridal party walked in to Albacore by Ani Defranco and Allie with her father walked into Amazing Grace by LL Divo.     They had a reading, read by Evan which was the words from Bob Dylan’s ” Wedding Song”.  Allie & Duke Sept 2013 jr bridesmaidAllie & Duke Sept 2013 w kidsAllie & Duke Sept 2013 w  mom Bev

Red Pineapple, St Augustine FL for beach gifts

  • Posted on October 2, 2013 at 1:30 pm

One of my favorite stores when visiting the St Augustine area is Red Pineapple Boutique on St. George Street.  They have the greatest selections of  unique clothing,  Jewelry, oh yes lots of Jewelry , Vintage looking Costume pieces to go WOW over and all kinds of fun knick knack that can make amazing bridal party gifts.    One of my favorite conversation finds is this Sunflower ring with a small blue butterfly attached to it.  And the sides have bees sketched out on it.  I attached a picture of my lucky find :).

I never know what I will come across.  They have had beautiful full length white dresses that would make for an amazing  and beautiful beach wedding dress.   Small clutch purses, artful make-up  bags.  You name it.  I just saw a posting of beach wood frames which would make great gifts.

I did ask about a website, which they are working to figure away to have one but as soon as photos are taken to use, the pieces sell.   So if you want to find that great bridal gift or something for your self, maybe something blue,  check out their facebook page, Red Pineapple Boutique.   904-342-0876
