Amber’s only request was to not wear shoes! She wanted to show off her heels only up to the beginning of the ceremony aisle, then kick them off and spend the rest of the evening barefoot and beautiful! And she did just that!
Jason and Amber married at Dreams Resort on May 9th. The color palette for this wedding was turquoise, chocolate brown and green. The bride and groom wanted a feeling of nature-inspired elegance on the beach, and this is what we came up with! Enjoy!
Bridal party flowers were kept simple, elegant and primarily white – the bride showed off a beautiful blend of white tulips, white dendrobium orchids and green cymbidium orchids, and bridesmaids carried tulips! The men wore mini white tulips.
The ceremony and reception décor was kept very natural, focusing on sea grass, willow and white orchid blossoms. A path of white rose petals tossed on the aisle right before the ceremony started welcomed the bride (and her bare feet)!
A breezy lounge was set up for guests beneath the beach palapas. Chiffons in the couple’s color palette accented the simple white beach furniture, and clusters of orchids, sea grass and willow were tucked in the sand around the base of each palapa.
Guests’ seating cards were arranged in sand and touches of grass and set to one side of the cocktail lounge.
Dinner tables set around a dance floor were dressed in deep chocolate fitted linens with vertical turquoise runners. White pillar candles in vases filled with sand, more arrangements of orchids, willow and sea grass as well as individual orchid blossoms ran the length of the table. Chair backs were tied with a beautiful design fabric.
One of my very favorite elements of this event was the cake! A beautiful and simple tri-level round cake with chocolate ribbon detailing the top and bottom layer and a special, hand-made wrap (same fabric as lounge pillows and chair ties!) for the middle layer! Sooo pretty!
This setup went from a lovely light feel in the daylight to a romantic ambiance with dinnertime candlelight to gorgeous glow for nighttime dancing!
And just a little extra for those who love photos . . . here’s my favorite from this wedding!
Thank you Amber and Jason for being so relaxed, so cool, so kind and so fun to work with!
