Swanky New Years Wedding in Seaside, Florida

Swanky New Years Wedding in Seaside, Florida

Arden, from Dallas, and Larkin, from Arkansas, both grew up vacationing along 30A in Florida. One particular Christmas vacation, the two happened to meet at a bonfire on the beach. Though quickly hitting it off, they each went their separate ways until one evening at the University of Arkansas. Both coincidentally enrolled at the U of A in Fayetteville, and spontaneously ran into one another at a campus function. Or was it coincidence? We don’t believe so, as the two soon became best friends, and soon after that decided to spend the rest of their lives together. On another trip to Seaside, this time together, Larkin proposed to Arden, who said yes without reservation. They, of course, felt it was only fitting to be married in the place where it all started!

Arden and Larkin accomplished a modern and fashion-forward New Years Wedding design with classic and timeless elements. The couple wanted a festive wedding without venturing into cheesy styling. From the 6-foot silver garland covering the entire ceiling of the reception space, to the monochromatic floral color palette, to the fun New Years hats and sunglasses, the couple did just that.

Arden wore a romantic ballgown designed by Monique Lhuillier, gracefully covered in floral appliqué with a nude underlay. The spaghetti straps of the gown and the neutral layering gave nod to their beach location of Seaside.
