Real Wedding: Margot + Patrick

Thank goodness brides like videographers. And thank goodness we have some really good ones down here in the Panhandle! This video had an 8mm effect in it---which I love, love, love!

Celia at Hilton Head Productions recently posted Margot + Patrick's Alys Beach wedding, and it's as cute as it can be. I love how Patrick swooshes Margot up in that big gown and sits her right in the back seat of the Model A! Good stuff! Oh--and the gloves and head band Margot wore. Serious style child.

Oh, and that's Mr. Chris in the back of the Model A. He's the owner, and drives it for the night. Of course, he usually assists the bride getting in. As we can see, Patrick had that part covered.

PS--This is a Jennifer Warwick-Lewis, of It's a "Shore" Thing Wedding & Events, wedding. Amazing, as usual.

Real Wedding: Laura + Josh

Laura (the bride) really, R-e-a-lly wanted a white/cream colored car for the wedding day. I spoke with her long before we found Mr. Al and the Packard. We searched high and low for her which was probably the reason I made the emergency U-turn in the middle of Hwy. 98, but that's another story. Finally--finally, we found the Packard, and boy was it a hit!

While I like to stick to car news, I just couldn't resist this picture collage from Candice K. Anyone want to join me? "I wear my sunnn--glasses at night, so I can, so I can..." I hear you singing--it's ok.

Run over to Candice's blog to see more pics. Bentley's on the Bay is a venue in the Florida Panhandle that we all love! The Wedding Willow Tree is terrific, and so is the service from the on-site coordinating team there.

Tampa's in the H-O-U-S-E

So you probably already know how excited we were yesterday about the Wedding Chicks feature. Today, we are equally excited to add Cory and his cars to our Tampa roster.

He's offering a ride in his 1964 Corvette Race Car:

A 1957 Chevy:

And last but not least, Cory will have a replica of the General Lee car in the near future. Probably something that looks a little like this:

Whatcha think about that one?

Wedding Chicks Feature

Hey All! I've been waiting on pins & needles to publish this post! After speaking with photographer, Angela Sackett of Loving Legacy Photography, we agree this match was meant to be!

Out of the blue, a fella named Cory emailed me a link to his and Caitlin's "Apres de Mariage" Photo Shoot (sorta like Apres Ski, but without the snow or skis) with their own vintage cars. He was thinking he might like to be on our roster for Tampa brides. Cool. I clicked on the link. Normally wedding folks say things like 'I love' or 'I swoon.' For me, it was more like 'I drool.'

Of course, I immediately drafted up an email to the photographer, asking ever so politely if I could please, please, please submit this to Jocey at the Wedding Chicks. It just screemed Wedding Chicks to me. Well, Angela had been thinking that same thought ALL along. {She shares my somewhat over-the-top enthusiasm for vintage-ness and weddings, so we clicked immediately!} Turns out, the email from Cory wasn't so random either. Angela had been telling him to contact us!

So, without further ado (or lengthy, excited, story-telling)...check out the post on Wedding Chicks...


Cherry Red & White Chevy Bel Air

You're gonna have to have a lot of style to ride away in this one, ladies. I mean, it's Cherry Red, it's shiny and it's a convertible. It's meant for a specific girl--sassy, gorgeous, confident, with a side of attitude. And you might need to buy a scarf to tie around your coiffure, because this car will G O.

This model of the Chevy Bel Air is known as the 2nd Generation Bel Air, and was made from '55-'57. Apparently, enthusiasts call it the "Hot One." I'll say.

Make : Chevy
Model: Bel Air Convertible
Year : 1957
Color: Red & White
Location: Tampa, FL

p u r p l e = f u n

I'll have to admit, when Emily presented this car to me, I wasn't sure what it was. After researching online, looking at pictures and reading the story behind the car, all I can say is...this is no ordinary Ford Vicky!

The owners have given special attention to each and every detail. It's sleek and stylish, and meant for the bride and groom who want to kick it up a little for their Grand Exit.

Make : Ford
Model: Vicky
Year : 1933
Color: Purple Metallic
