Imagine exchanging nuptials in a picturesque chapel on the banks of a sparkling lake. Or sipping icy Mint Juleps under ancient oaks; the Spanish moss dripping from their limbs like molasses.

from the editor President/Publisher

Falling in Love in (and with) Northwest Florida

scott holstein photography

I was beyond thrilled when my publisher, Brian Rowland, approached me and asked me to work on the inaugural issue of Northwest Florida Weddings. For me, this region, with its rolling hills, majestic oaks and pure white, sugar-sand beaches, will always symbolize love. I count it among my many blessings that I now get to share that love with all of you. There’s something I should come clean about, however. I am not actually from Northwest Florida. I found my home in Tallahassee much by accident — or maybe grand design, if you’re so inclined to believe — in the summer of 2011 when I relocated to Florida’s capital city to finish up my bachelor’s degree, and (most undeniably) to follow a boy. As it turns out, it may have been the best decision I have ever made. Over the past several years, I have repeatedly been moved by the genuine goodwill of this area’s friendly inhabitants and the deep-rooted devotion they hold to the land. If you stick around for a while, you’ll see that their loyalty comes as no real surprise; it’s easy to fall in love with the natural wonders seen throughout this region. Our diverse topography effortlessly lends itself to a variety of backdrops, from coast to city to country. And each has its own immense allure when it comes to matters of the heart. To help you navigate through the magazine, take note of the different areas of interest we’ve laid out. For this issue, we wanted to represent three of Northwest Florida’s iconic settings — the coast, city and country. Toward the back of the book, we assembled the most talented vendors and service providers in the region in our “Making it Happen” section. Sprinkled throughout, you’ll also find bits of inspiration. Having your wedding here would be the experience of a lifetime. Trust me. As a girl of a certain age, with certain (sparkling) things on her mind, I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Speaking of which, I did mention something about a boy, didn’t I? And this is a wedding magazine. Sean and I frequent many of the locales featured in this issue. Whether it’s been a romantic stroll, an afternoon picnic with our pups or a candlelit dinner for two, we’ve delighted in every delicious second of our lives together in this enchanting region of the American South. As you flip through these carefully coordinated pages, try to envision yourself in each shot. It shouldn’t be too difficult. For this publication, we’ve teamed up with the best and brightest photographers in the region to bring you real photos of real weddings. To learn more about each of the artists, please check out our contributors’ section, located on page 14. If you’re a local, I hope you too feel the same admiration I do for this spectacular area. If you aren’t, I hope one day you’re fortunate enough to experience all the light and love Northwest Florida has to offer. Happy wedding planning! We’ll be seeing you. Yours,

Chay D. Baxley

Back to Nature Fresh is always alluring. If you’re feeling a tad uninspired, take a cue from nature by streamlining your ceremony to the bare essentials. Combine newly cut flowers with a lush yet simple color palette to help blend the scene seamlessly. If an outdoor ceremony is out of the question, consider bringing nature inside. For an earthy, coastal celebration, try filling mason jars with sand and flickering candlelight for a relaxed glow.

NORTHWEST FLORIDA WEDDINGS


It’s All in the Details. A carefree, whirlwind romance may have led you to this moment, but if you’re in search of the perfect wedding, the pace of your life is about to pick up. There are the invitations to think of, venue choices, floral arrangements and bridal gifts. Not to mention finding the most delicious caterer, a rocking band, and, of course, the dress. In this land of perpetual wedding planning, research is key. Finding trustworthy vendors will make this process soar by. Truth is, your wedding is more than just the sum of its parts. When fate brings you vendors who understand that, and are as eager about the big day as you, then the stars have truly aligned.

After the vows are exchanged and the cake is sliced, there are only three tangible and enduring objects you’ll be able to take with you as a memento of your special day — the photographs, the rings and your dress. In years to come, these items will become tokens of love to you and your family. At Dream Gowns, located in sunny Panama City, they’re skilled in selecting timeless silhouettes for brides and bridesmaids that complement the individual, instead of blindly adhering to fleeting trends. With a blend of lace and grace, Dream Gowns has put at ease the minds of beautiful brides everywhere, one gleaming frock at a time. Photos

A Flair for Vintage Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Incorporating hints of historical touches [think Gatsby-esque] into a ceremony can lend a rich yet effortless ambiance to the festivities. Vibrant red lipstick, a delicate lace veil, muted dusty hues, softly pinned curls, smooth twinkling lights — subtle and enduring, these vintage inspired designs add a touch of luxury and elegance to an already memorable affair.
