Beach Ceremony Setup: Chairs, Feet, Aisle, & Dress

Such a sleepy day today.  On the drive in to work this morning I heard a few songs that brought on an emotional moment in which I was filled with excitement to marry Tim.  Leave it to country music to choke you up at 9AM. 

Of course I'd want guests to be warm and cozy.
Sea glass created a border on the custom-made aisle runner. Votives marked the end of each row in place of flowers.
Custom blue-and-white coasters were the perfect addition to the cocktail-party feel of the reception.

Each guest received a glass of champagne decorated with a paper disc that read "Liz and Andy" as they entered the cocktail hour.
"We put something fun and different on each table," says Liz, including short vases with candles and orchids submerged in turquoise water. Rows of flickering turquoise votives completed the look.

A row of candles lit up longer tables while tall vases filled with blue-dyed water and floating tea lights added drama at a bargain price.
A white runner matched the crisp look of the white wooden chairs. The ones on the aisle were adorned with starfish hanging by orange and turquoise ribbon, a nod to the beach location.
Leslie’s mermaid-style gown by Pronovias was covered in Spanish lace and had a feminine yet sexy keyhole back.
Fresh white towels were placed in a rattan basket with a “Refresh Your Toes” sign so that guests could dust the sand off their feet after leaving the beach ceremony.
