Vanessa, Brent and their family and friends were a trip!
I actually did not meet this couple till the day of their rehearsal. They could not wait to get it over with so they could get back to the hotel and party. Lol, my kinda crowd! The guests came from as far as Australia(Vanessa's home). The wedding was definitely all about the couple and what they love. I love little details that make a wedding special!
I received the custom invitation in the mail and absolutely loved it! The couple actually made the invites and al the inserts at home.
The Ad Lib RSVP was definitely my favorite part!
The ceremony took place on this beach next to the Dania Pier.
After the reception the guests made their way up to the Beach Watch Restaurant (which was RIGHT there) for the cocktail style reception. The reception it self took place on the back half of the restaurant. The decor was simple but fun :) Orange and yellow lanterns hung from the inside and outside. The table were dressed in white linens and accented with little bowls of yellow-purple tip carnations.
Custom coasters that the couple made decorated also decorated the tables.
They decided to for-go the original cake idea and use cupcakes! The ones with the white frosting were filled with Key Lime pie the Chocolate frosting cupcakes were filled with fudge!
For favors the couple gave out wine charms they made out of Scrabble pieces.
The couple love the game so much.....it is how Brent asked Vanessa to marry him :)
Next to the favors was the sign-in mat.
The couple shared their first dance to "Anyone Else But You" from the movie Juno.
Here is a video of the song if you have never heard the song or seen the movie.
Photographer Chelsey Boatwright had a photo area set up.....think prom. Lol. That made for some hysterical pictures!
Please take a moment to admire the bride's AWESOME hair piece!
and Finally....our happy couple the Mr. & Mrs.!
They will be having another reception in April in Australia then going on a honeymoon that is sure to be amazing to Thailand and the South Pacific!
Vanessa and Brent, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day!
I had a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends! And finally meeting the two of you! I know that together you will have a wonderful live together filled with love and LOTS OF LAUGHS!
