Elegant Spanish Mission Inspired Wedding

Desiring to be transported from the typical Miami scenery and inspired by the gorgeous old Spaniard architecture, we set our eyes on the majestic Plymouth Congregational Church. This impressive historic building, a gem located in the neighborhood of Coconut Grove, was completed by a single man in 1917. Its architecture was modeled after the old Spanish missions of Mexico. This eventscape was influenced by the romantic, natural aspects of this grand location. White Peonies, Anemones and lush greens emphasize the setting under the beautiful afternoon light. Ozzy Garcia not only captured stunning images of the couple, but also brought out the finest details of this enchanting building.

The breathtaking gown’s soft waves were a graceful contrast to the hardness of the extraordinary vine-coated stone church. The exquisite but simple cake, baked by E&M Sweets went along perfectly with the shining silver platters and tableware from Panache Classic Party Rentals. Refined accents of fruits and greenery complimented the design. Altogether, it was a Spaniard affair that would excite any bride to recreate this gorgeousness spread highlighting the charms of the old world.

Plum Pretty Sugar


We are so in love with the collection of apparel, loungewear, and dreamy robes and that Plum Pretty Sugar has created for brides and their maids to wear pre or post wedding… or even at the wedding (the new high Low Honey Dresses are perfect for a beach or relaxed garden wedding!). Plum Petty Sugar just introduced a selection of breezy new items and a new fabric print that is a “must-have.”

Plum Pretty Sugar features items whisper-soft cottons and lush silks. You might have a hard time choosing between the robes, dress and pj sets all in garden of eden inspired flora. One thing is for sure, they are beautiful and easy-living chic, perfect for gifting at your bridal shower as you ask your maids to be yours or even a bachelorette gift.

Their new print, Fields to Wanderfall is so pretty! Seriously, these robes are absolutely stunning, and this floral design is by far our new favorite!

Plum Pretty Sugar also added some pretty little accessories such as photo frames and eye masks. We’re thinking the frames a perfect addition to gifting a robe.. and the eye masks… bridal gift fun! Truly, there is so much pretty to choose from. We hope you’ll pop over to Plum Pretty Sugar and take a peek!

Coastal Chic Palmetto Bluff Wedding

Spencer Special Events adored working with Lee & Brian along with their darling family and talented hand-picked vendors for their sweet summer affair at the charming Palmetto Bluff Resort located in beautiful Bluffton, South Carolina.

The love of the Low Country for the Dougherty’s began over 40 years ago when Lee’s mother began vacationing on Hilton Head Island. After Lee was born it continued to be a much-anticipated family trip. Lee re-introduced Brian to the island several years ago and he immediately shared in Lee’s love of this special place. It only seemed fitting that their wedding would take place in a place so close to her and her families’ hearts. After searching high and low throughout the Low Country, Lee and Brian felt at home at the Auberge Resort’s Palmetto Bluff and thrilled to share their vows with their closest family and friends in the Waterside Chapel. Complete with “Oh, Happy Day” performed joyfully by the Voices of El Shaddai gospel choir to celebrate the newlyweds.

This Coastal Chic venue was truly our inspiration in the design and details. Lee and Brian wanted a timeless, classic, and memorable wedding weekend for their guests with divine cuisine, fine wines, and a great band! The couple’s love for their family and friends was clear throughout the planning process, arrival of each and every guest to this destination wedding weekend, down to the fond farewell to conclude an amazing wedding day!
