A few years ago, I came across the House of Refuge Museum while doing a location search online and my jaw literally dropped. Florida has some beautiful backdrops but there was something unique about this beach with the House of Refuge still standing as the oldest structure in Martin County. So much rich history, we were excited to finally put together the perfect intimate beach elopement for the free-spirited & romantic bride!
Inspired by all things gypsy, led by Events by Zeiry this team of vendors combined some beautifully unique elements. The stationary suite by Stationery Bliss set the stage with some organic vibes using hand pressed florals on the invitations & menus. A custom birch wood teepee created by the amazing Avant Gardens adorned with bold yet delicate florals created a stunning ceremony arch, and converted into the perfect romantic sweetheart lounge. The reception table mixed macrame runners with elegant floral filled lanterns. Hand lettered agate stone place cards & a stunning acrylic display by the talented Ink Letter Love will seriously leave you speechless. Let’s dive in… as I seriously could go on gushing about all the many other accessories, vintage details & decor that rounded out the design to bring in the overall gypsy chic vibe!
Melissa from Amora Beauty is to credit for the stunning hair & makeup while Jaime from Champagne & Grit complemented the style with these custom bridal head piece.
As twilight came upon us, the ceremonial teepee was converted into a romantic lounge.
