Scott and Mary | April 28, 2022
This gorgeous Florida wedding was beach vibes GOALS. The Pelican Club was the perfect backdrop for an extra fun and beautiful day! Every detail was perfectly executed for an elegant, tropical, and luxurious wedding full of fun and romantic touches! I’m obsessing over the white midi bridesmaid dresses and tropical florals (Fun fact: some of the greenery was hand-picked from Mary’s family’s backyard! How cool!) Scott and Mary chose to do a first touch instead of a first look. They read each other a sweet handwritten letter as they stood back to back before the ceremony and it was SO precious to capture their emotions. After some fun bridal party shots in the gorgeous courtyard, we saw rain in the forecast and it was nerve-wracking to decide if there should be an indoor or outdoor ceremony.
After a last-minute change to go outside, the processional began, the bride was about to be revealed behind the doors, and then… DOWNPOUR. The rain came in HARD and everyone scurried inside. DJ Malike understood the assignment and began playing all the rain-related songs to keep the energy up while we waited out the rain! The Pelican Club staff and planners worked quickly to dry chairs and within 20-30 minutes, we began again!!
The rest of the day had perfect weather and the only water falling were tears!! The oceanside location with the water and lighthouse background was truly stunning. The sun peaked out for a few gorgeous golden hour photos and then the party began! DJ Malike launched an EPIC evening with the best music and sparklers while I captured some of the best dancing and candid images ever! Some of my favorite photos of the whole day are from the reception where Scott and Mary brought allllll of the partying, dancing, and fun! (annnddd also Chick-fil-a, yes please!)
While this was a destination wedding for me, everyone from the wedding was from Florida, so it was truly such an epic and special experience to be a part of!! Scott and Mary’s family and friends were truly some of the sweetest people I’ve met and it was SO fun spending all day with them.
Scott and Mary, can you both get married again same time next year? Yes? Okay, perfect 😉 haha but for real… thank you for including me in such a sweet day!!
