Wedding Blessings...July..Summertime and Sunshine on the Beach!

Your, white sand and lapping blue waves of the ocean..where else....the beach of course!

July's birthstone is the Ruby symbolizing contentment and peace.

July's flower is the Larkspur symbolizing fickleness, lightness and ardent attachment.

With a few vibrant splashes of color, a white cascade exudes an exotic splendor. Tropical yellow-and-pink cattelaya orchids punctuate ivory clouds of lisianthius and sweet peas. Lithe gloriosa lilies enliven the bouquet. A silk soft yellow ribbon trails down your gown accenting the white and light agua of your reception colors.

What is more romantic than a walk on the beach? Getting married on the beach, of course! We had to incorporate a beach summer wedding. After all...we have had such memorable family vacations on the beach. There is nothing more majestic, peaceful, calming and somewhat ethereal as sitting on the beach and being mesmerized by the lapping ocean this is our chosen venue...

The wedding menu can take many forms, from a simple self-service buffet to an elaborate five course meal served by waiters. In the most traditional version, a seated dinner is generally preceded by a cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres and contains three courses: a first course, a main entree, and a dessert. The first course is typically a small, composed plate -- an artfully arranged salad of oranges, fennel, and olives, or a trio of prawns with a garlicky aioli, for example. The main entree usually includes a meat or fish, such as filet mignon or poached salmon (you should have a separate dish for your vegetarian guests), accompanied by a starch (herbed rice, mashed potatoes with truffle oil) and a vegetable (glazed carrots, grilled eggplant). Dessert may or may not be your wedding cake; some couples serve a separate dessert -- something light and refreshing, like a lemon tart -- and save the wedding cake for later in the reception, say, during the dancing.
