Chautauqua Beach House

Chautauqua Beach House, St. Augustine Beach, FL was host to the bride and groom over the weekend and where the reception was held.

Chautauqau Beach House, St. Augustine, FL is a beach home rental so once I’ve obtained the contact info for them from the bride I will put them here.

The Chautauqua Beach House was a fantastic location in St. Augustine. You could view the beach wedding ceremony location 150 yards away down on the beach from the porch. This was very convenient for timing since caterers and DJs can keep visual tabs on client progress and execute tasks based on what they see. The parking was a tough situation though. You’re best bet will be to tell guests to park one block west of A1A and walk over. (Seriously…you will be thankful I gave you this tip. Parking was a problem.)

Seashells and orchids were the table decorations at this beach wedding.

Mazel Tov Jewish Ceremony Tip

The final step in a Jewish wedding ceremony is the traditional stomping of the glass. The last thing you want on your special day is a trip to the ER so to safely perform this step place a light bulb in a tightly tied cloth bag instead of using a piece of glassware. The result…..no large glass shards, no flying splinters, guaranteed breakage and best of all….no pesky bleeding.

ECO FRIENDLY WEDDING IDEAS

Good for you for reading this article. You are obviously an urbane, hip and very cool person looking for ways to move your wedding forward in an eco-friendly lifestyle.

This is super duper important when having a ceremony at the beach. Beach weddings are so romantic and lovely. It just kills when I see the leftover garbage floating out into the ocean. Big no-nos on Florida beaches are balloon releases (totally verboten in Florida now) and flower petals thrown by flower girls. Do not use paper, fabric or real flower petals (pesticides = bad.) You’re at the beach so why not have her sprinkle shells instead?¬† Also, be especially vigilant about plastics (bags, etc.) that can get blown away.

Here are some great environmentally friendly ways to conduct your special day courtesy of www.simplybridal.com.

Wedding ceremonies at the Haskell Building in downtown Jacksonville, FL (Duval County) located directly on the St. John’s river are always fun to do.
