So many choices so little time when it comes to figuring out the perfect Fall wedding color palette for your perfect day…but don’t fret… here are some great ideas to get your wedding color vibes flowing for the perfect shade, tone and feel you are going for!
Deep Berry Tones
Summer berries fit the perfect fall color palette. Whether in a bouquet, on a cake, or placed in an element of an elegant place setting, these deep blues and vibrant reds fashion a cozy edge in a blissful event.
Yellow is the new nude. A fall wedding isn’t complete without warm tones emulating that golden hour we all know and adore. A color that spreads among a myriad of shades, this color crafts a seamless look for your beloved ladies standing by your side or even your gorgeous florals!
Out with the pristine and in with the imperfect. Time to ditch the impeccably arranged peonies and roses. Wild flowers are the go for your autumn-inspired wedding. A colorful arrangement of soft washed florals of all shapes and sizes can add that unique element you have been longing for.
Era-themed weddings are IN. From the Victorian ages to the 1970s, your wedding can emulate these trendy times in more ways than you can imagine! From your style choices to your photographer, you can start a wildfire with your vision!
I know what your thinking! Halloween = Scary = Not wedding appropriate. BUT hear me out. Think “dark enchanted elegance” — Dark tones, crystal glasses, romantic florals, black tie ball. This strays far from your “classic elegance” but, if done right, will exceed your expectations of the wedding of your dreams.
So there ya go! No matter what your theme is formulating in that beautiful thought bubble over your head you can find inspiration throughout the seasons and create your very special #SoooBoca wedding designed exclusively by you and for you ?
If there is one thing you need to know about the #SoooBoca girls (Alle, Kylie and Michele Bee) — it is that we are serious about our food. We are the queens of dining out and being that there are three of us we split everything! We recently had the pleasure of being invited to experience a private chef tasting at one of our favorite restaurants, Oceans 234 for their delicious summer menu and to take a peak at what their newest executive chef William Middleton was up to in the kitchen! And believe us…it is all very, very good!
Now, we know Oceans 234 isn’t technically in the Boca city limits, but honey it might as well be. The proximity between Boca Raton and Oceans 234 is a stones throw away and in our opinion one of the best places to dine beach side locally.
From the moment we stepped into the restaurant it felt like home — the presentation and atmosphere are always appreciated and familiar, yet provokes surprise and delight due to the fabulous decor and of course the ocean views. The hostess was expecting our arrival, and shortly after greeting us the always gracious and lovely Danielle Rosse, owner, came by to give us the down low on their newest summer time items! A mix of fresh and savory choices decorated their summer menu — we opted to try dishes from both menus — because well duh why not!
Sooo let’s be real here, we just had to start the afternoon off right with a succulent round of brightly colored sangria — we decided we just had to try all three so white, pink and red it was! Each glass was refreshing and light and was accompanied by a fragrant flower which was a lovely touch and the perfect compliment to the summer heat, while we were perusing the menus trying to decide which items to order.
If the sangria wasn’t enough to cool us down, Oceans 234 Beverage Coordinator Juan Chacon stopped by to drop off their signature Froze to the table (Frozen Rosè — we mean really?!? Could the day get any better). If you haven’t tried Froze yet you need to literally drop everything your doing and run there — physically sprint because it is the best thing we have ever had…not to mention apparently they were the first restaurant in the area to be serving up this little frozen slice of heaven!
So while we were clinking our glasses and passing around the four signature vino classics we put in a order of Blue Crab Claws — melted in butter with red chili flakes and garlic served with dipping bread … HELLO… how sexy is that.
We also chose the Mezze Platter a trio of hummus, charred baba ganoush and a bright cucumber salad — mostly to set off the amount of butter we were about to consume but also because it was the perfect trio — similar to us 😉 The mezze platter is a modern twist on your tradition greek dips. The baba ganoush was clearly charred to perfection and melted as soon as it hit your lips. We called this one fork to mouth — no pita needed — seriously it was that good.
Last minute we decided to dive into something from the raw bar, with a great recommendation from our server Joe and we ended up trying the Tuna Poke which was totally delicious and aesthetically pleasing. The best part about the poke was the South Florida twist on the Hawaiian classic — instead of serving the poke al a carte or with rice this dish was served up nicely with plantain chips. If you want to know the way to the #SoooBoca girls hearts give us any type of chip for dipping and you’ve got our full attention.
As we munched, talked and sipped, Chef William, Oceans 234 executive chef came out to greet us and answer any questions we had. William is a Florida native, growing up just around the corner from Oceans 234 in Lighthouse Point. He has been in the food scene for over 18 years, he enjoys curating new recipes and is relishing the development of Oceans 234 current menu. As a meat and potatoes guy he suggested we try out their seasonal steak the Cajun’d Ribeye and the Pesto & Tomato Roasted Snapper with zoodles. We were wowed!
The rib-eye was seasoned perfectly and cooked to a warm medium-rare, while the snapper was dotted perfectly with sauce and laid delicately atop the zoodle mountain. Both dishes were hearty yet gentle and extremely elevated. We threw some grilled cauliflower and crispy brussel sprouts in the mix to get our daily dose of vegetables, and trust us when we say this was a delectable choice.
As our meals and cocktails came to a close, it is safe to say we would be waddling out of the restaurant — but just as we were about to pack up our belongings and our full tummys, Joe brought over the dessert menu. Whelp … As you can imagine we did not have enough will power to say no — so two coffees and a blood orange creme brulë later we were in fact, waddling out of Oceans 234, leaving the beautiful beach scene, amazing hospitality and chic restaurant behind us.
What can we say except dining at Oceans 234 was #soooboca delightful — it really is one of our favorite spots to buzz by for lunch, dinner, dessert or just a happy hour with friends. The food is always fresh and excellent, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere on the water is just what the heart desires. Thank you to Danielle Rosse, William Middleton, Juan Chacon, Shanine Dorta, our amazing server Joe and the entire Oceans 234 team for making our day oh sooo very special!

Summer time, summer time, sum sum summertime is here baby!
It is time to breath a bit and hit the beaches and boy do we have amazing beaches in #bocaraton.
I grew up hanging out at Red Rocks (now Red Reef) and still am amazed at the beauty of our local Boca beaches.
From Spanish River Park to Red Reef to the Palmetto Pavilion and county run (yup) South Beach Inlet at Camino Real there are many choices for diving, snorkeling, fishing, boating and of course simply relaxing and building your dream home ie. the sandcastle. There is even a dog friendly beach up at Spanish River Park!
Intertwined with parks that have space to BBQ with picnic tables and playgrounds you can simply take a drive up A1A and pick from a variety of lovely beaches! We are so lucky that the city had the infinite wisdom to protect our miles of beaches here for future generational enjoyment.
We love to go to the beaches no matter what time of year it is. There’s are the surfers, the sailers, the coffee drinkers and the bikers all overlapping and converging on our beautiful beaches. At anytime you can find solace at the beach with the lure of the Atlantic Ocean at your feet. The calm sound of the waves draws you in as you gaze out to the horizon watching birds, fish jump and fishing boats heading out to fish or coming home for the day.
