a seaside affair, part I::

Last weekend, we took a trip to Seaside, FL for two friends’ wedding. We and our friends rented 3 cottages right in the middle of “town,” if you can call it that because it’s so small. We had the most amazing time — gorgeous weather, pretty houses, great seafood (and food trailers), a beautiful wedding, and the best group of friends. I did come to the realization that I have a problem, though. I officially take an obscene amount of photos, especially when weddings and vacations are involved. I took 200 pictures last weekend, for crying out loud! There are far too many favorites to share, but here’s a glimpse at Travis + Anna’s wedding weekend!

Our pretty yellow cottage with bright blue doors and 4 balconies and porches.
With views of the ocean and only a 1-minute walk to everything in town.


The Meltdown…. I had the exact same thing for lunch 2 days in a row, and I contemplated getting it on the 3rd day.
I love a good grilled cheese — and add bacon to that, and you have my heart!



Beautiful, beautiful beach. Our playground for 3 days.


Shameless plug…. the La Totale Bag from Stella & Dot is the perfect beach bag.
Water bottle holder, lots of pockets, wipeable lining, and waterproof on the outside.

View from the top!



Craig got his oysters at the Great Southern. 

Hanging out with the bride at Bud and Alley’s.




Why can’t we do this every weekend? I need to win the lottery.

Because there were far too many photos from the actual wedding, stay tuned for part 2 this week!

  1. I love reading your blogs Melissa! We were living vicariously through you looking at all the wonderful photos. You captured everything! I love taking pics myself but so enjoyed all of your wedding weekend getaway photos. I’m sure everyone will enjoy them as we’ll 🙂

    • Thank you, Mary Ellen! Everyone knows my love for capturing everything we do via photos, and this blog has been such a fun way to remember all of our adventures and share them with our friends and family who don’t live nearby.
