I'm back, and I'm MARRIED! I can't believe that the day has come and gone. We had such a long engagement, and there was plenty of stress tied into the planning, but it's still is crazy to me. I couldn't be happier to be back though, married to my charming, and getting to share all the details with you lovelies finally.
I plan to write up an entire series focusing on all the details from the wedding. From planning to the day to the honeymoon after. It'll all be coming your way as we make our way into the new year, but to kick it off I want to tell you about our Wedding Week Getaway!
So our venue, The Mulberry, was in New Smyrna Beach, FL. Not necessarily far from Orlando, but it was still a good 2 hour drive for us so I'm considering it a mini destination wedding. We headed out Wednesday that week and stayed at the SpringHill Suites New Smyrna Beach.Y'all this hotel was amazing and helped this stressed out bride be a little more at ease. The hotel is located right on the beach first of all! It can't get any better than that. Plus, it's on the main drag where you have all the shops, restaurants, and bars to choose from.
We stayed in a deluxe king ocean view with balcony for the week, and my goodness was it wonderful! We were on the top floor looking out over the ocean. Waking up with the soothing sounds of the waves and beautiful sunrises were so calming and set the tone that the days were going to be peaceful. I feel like the room had everything. There was a: mini fridge, microwave, keurig, corner couch, desk, comfy pillows, a spacious bathroom, and sipping coffee in the mornings on the balcony quickly became one of my favorites. They even surprised us with a little congratulatory goodie basket and a bottle of wine. So sweet!
Besides our room being equipped with most everything, the care was outstanding. So friendly and accommodating! The lobby was huge and served breakfast daily. If you wanted to you could even enjoy your food out on the patio over looking the fire pits, pool, and beach. This area was super nice for lounging and enjoying the ocean breeze without getting all sandy. There also was a fully stacked bar for bevies and Starbucks coffee, so we were most definitely set morning through night.
Like I mentioned we headed out that way an extra day early so we could get situated knowing the week was going to be a long one, but one of the most amazing of our lives. Thursday was rehearsal day which started to bring on more of the anxious nerves, but everything went so lovely. Then Friday was the BIG DAY!! I couldn't had asked for better weather. Waking up to such a beautiful scene really put me at ease and there was a sense of peace and comfort that made me go into the day knowing all was going to work out exactly how it was meant to. Our wedding day was truly a fairytale and all of my dreams and desires were brought to life. More on all this to come. We decided to enjoy one last celebratory day with a brunch and beach day to follow. It was so nice being able to simply walk to and from the restaurant, hotel, and beach. The less hassle the better.
So if you're thinking about visiting New Smyrna Beach, FL whether it be a destination vacation or a mini staycation, you can't go wrong staying at the SpringHill Suites NSB. I promise you, you'll have a most enjoyable relaxing time! We most definitely will be reliving our wedding stay in months to come.
I hope you all have a Happy Holiday season!
