When this seaside wedding from Melissa Schollaert landed in my inbox, I knew immediately that I had to post it. The details are lovely, and the location itself is stunning.
Kristin and Carter were married on Gasparilla Island, on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
To my eye, it looks like her bouquet contained lilies, daisies, and Queen Anne’s Lace. The crosshatched raffia wrap around the stems fits perfectly with the beachy vibe. The flowers were done by The Red Monkey Florist in Port Charlotte.
Kristin and Carter were married in a tiny white church just yards from the shore.
Guests were given fans that doubled as programs to keep cool during the ceremony.
Dried eucalyptus wreaths tied with raffia hung on either side of the church front door.
After ceremony portraits were taken on the lush and appropriately named Banyan Drive.
The cocktail hour and reception was held at the Boca Bay Pass Club. I couldn’t resist the Deviled Eggs shot.
Tables were topped with fish netting, island greenery, and blue glass bottles. The reception tables were named after different species of fish.
The bride’s and groom’s seats at the reception were decked out in more eucalyptus and raffia. A sparkler exit lit up the end of the night.
Thanks so much, Melissa, for the beautiful photographs, and to Kristin & Carter for sharing your day with all of us! I do have a few more details, so I’ll do my best to help out with sources if you post in the comments. You can also see more here and here.
