Well I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this cute beach wedding! Sara and Matt met in Kindergarten and fell in love at St Pete Beach in Florida. So they decided to get married here!
With punchy pops of colour, the day had fun stamped all over it. Sara loves a bit of colour, and the natural beach setting gave a perfect neutral backdrop to go a little crazy! Sara also chose some colour for her dress, opting for a blush pink A-line with sweet lace overlay and floating train. No veil, which was a great choice for a beach ceremony, to stop it flying around, and Sara chose to wear her hair up – another beautiful choice for the seaside.
Bridesmaids were, appropriately, in coral, with floating chiffon skirts that rippled elegantly in the sea breeze. In gorgeous contrast, the groom and his groomsmen were in navy blue, with the groomsmen’s ties matching the bridesmaids’ dresses perfectly. Shoes were kicked off for the day and all the girls wore sparkling barefoot sandals, with the guys in sandals or barefoot. It’s just feels so dreamy and relaxed to marry with your bare feet planted firmly on the sand.
With the beauty of the beach surrounding them, flowers and décor were kept simple. Sara and Matt opted for white, light green and coral roses for the bouquets, matching the floral accents on the gazebo and the floating fabric that wrapped around it. The colour theme carried through to the reception, with coral napkins and floating candles sitting alongside sweet cocktail umbrella escort cards; the perfect touch for a tropical colour theme! The ombre cake, ruffled and sinking into a sea-blue made a lovely centrepiece for a beachy themed day; it even had a couple of beach chairs perched on top!
With a clear blue sky, white sand and sparkling sea, it really doesn’t get more idyllic than this. Celebrations went on until well after the sun sank into the sea with joyful dancing and toasts to the happy couple.
