I’m back! Wedding Food and Honeymoon Pictures!

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi everyone!! I’m back from my AMAZING wedding and honeymoon! It was all absolutely perfect. The wedding was a fairy tale and EVERYTHING went just right. There’s no other word but perfect! For all of my in depth wedding recaps, please check out my wedding blog! Although I could gush about my wedding on every single outlet possible, I’m instead going to feature some food photos from the wedding (of course!) and some honeymoon pictures! I’ll be back on schedule with my food and recipe posts tomorrow! These are not the professional photos (I’m anxiously awaiting those!)

First off, I want to personally thank Kate, Lora, Layla, Katie, Amanda and Amanda for guest posting for me while I was out! You ladies have been such great friends to me and are constant sources of inspiration every day. And I’m so eager to try all the yummy dessert recipes (even the tofu one!) and those workout tips! Okay, now onto some pictures!

One of my favorites from the wedding 🙂 Now onto the food!

My best friend’s mom got us a cake that said “Congrats Claire, OMG You’re Getting Married!”

Stocked fridge at the beach house. It lasted, oh, about a day.

Our bridal luncheon spot, Poogan’s Porch!

Our amazing food from the luncheon! Salmon, southern fried crab cakes and my delicious fried green tomato BLT!

Couldn’t find a picture of all the hors’ devours, but the lobster rolls were my favorite anyway!

The basil tomato soup! (In the second photo you can see them pour it!)

AMAZING salad!

The chicken.

The salmon.

The filet. It was AMAZING.

The cake was not only absolutely beautiful, it was delicious!

Our candy bar, which I think turned out absolutely beautiful! (Thank you Kristi!)

Once the fabulous professional photos come in, I’ll have more tasty pictures to share with ya’ll! Now that you are all plenty hungry, let’s move on to beautiful honeymoon pictures! I’ll be doing a full recap of the honeymoon on my wedding site, so be sure to keep checking back!

Turks and Caicos is absolutely gorgeous.  The sand is white, the water is aqua and the temperature lies at a perfect 85. It’s an island paradise and I desperately want to go back!

Walking on the beach. So serene!

Yes, the water is this blue!

Of course I had to take some fabulously trendy shots of the new bling!

The palm trees and the flowers were my favorite. So gorgeous and in bloom!

Me with the amazing scenery. It’s honestly impossible to take a bad photo here!

We’re a handsome couple, aren’t we? The last photo was taken on Sunday right after we got back!

The sunsets were breathtaking. Just, speechless!

I’ll be sharing the rest of my honeymoon photos on A Realistic Wedding but just had to share a few here! Just a heads up, I’ll be merging both sites in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled for a brand new look, feel and function of this little website!

    1 - omg I am RAVENOUS after seeing all these food photos. Everything looks/sounds amazing! Good thing my hubby wasn't there - he would have hoarded all of the lobster rolls. They are his jam, baby.
    2 - T&C looks heavenly. I want to go to there.
    3 - Um, that blue ruffled cover up dress?!?!? Give it to me now and no one gets hurt. It is SO cute, and you look really awesome in it! Jealous. I demand you tell me where you acquired that.

    Hey. One of my friends follows you and I got married on 3/26 and also went to Club Med for our honeymoon! I recognized you from the pics, but I don't think we ever ate together or anything. It looks like you had a beautiful wedding. It's so sad to be back from Turks!

    Hey Claire! I searched A Realistic Wedding, but couldn't find where you guys stayed while in T&C. My husband and I want to take a trip there, and would love any recommendations you have for the islands! :D
