Truth moment: I've been dreading this weekend for a while now. That is, until yesterday when Laura picked me up for an afternoon of mani/pedi's and a little happy hour treatment. You see, this is the last weekend of my twenties. On Monday I turn the big 3-0. After our day together, I'm feeling pretty proud, self-assured, and not gonna lie...my bold blue nails totally rock. Bring on a new decade!
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
As a wedding blog editor, it seems almost unheard of that there are venues nearby that I never knew of, let alone ones this gorgeous! The Mansion at Tuckahoe is nestled on the intracoastal in Martin County and has Mediterranean architecture and rolling green lawns. When I was browsing our Faves' sites, I came across Leslie's recent trip to South Florida where she captured Andrew and Ashley's beautiful wedding at the mansion. You see? This is why we love Florida. Tuxes and palm trees. So awesome.
This Keys groom loved sweets so much his caterer provided a candy bar, cookies with milk in flutes, and wedding cake!
We're not just bloggers 'round here. We can throw a pretty rad party, too.
Okay, so I was happy with the 10 degree drop in temperature here until I saw this absolutely jaw-dropping Colorado Fall wedding. Those golden colors are radiant!
By now, you all know we're suckers for bold color palettes and artistic photography. Enter, Australia's Hitched Magazine with all of its fashion forward, colorful indie perfection now joining us in the States. Want!
HAPPENINGS & EVENTS

WELCOME TO OUR NEW VENDOR GUIDE MEMBERS / SPONSORS!
We can't say enough good things about the guys in the Chillula band. We're such fans and know that they'll add spice to any party whether you want a solo singer/guitarist or full six piece band.
Chrissy and Nicki of Vitalic Photo are truly one of the greatest photography teams to work with. We've collaborated on three occasions now! They creatively capture the true emotion and beauty of your wedding day and are experts in the natural light department.
One of my all-time favorite spots in downtown West Palm, The Blind Monk is a friendly and sophisticated joint serving wine, craft beer, artisanal cheese, and small plates. It's perfect for an intimate bridal shower or welcome reception and, of course, a great Happy Hour location.
Not only is working with Eynat and Jen a dream, AFR's exquisite furniture rental options are the answer to so many cozy seating questions, too. Personally, I love their modern and industrial options.
We hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with good times and amazing friends. If you're doing something super fun, tell us about it! Use #floridiansocial and follow us @floridianwed! xo
