I didn't realize how much of a modern bride I was until I saw these gorgeous Vero Beach nuptials and decided that I needed to have this exact wedding for my own big day. From the vibrant coral and blue color scheme to the sleek and elegant centerpieces, you could say I am a tad bit obsessed with this beachy soiree. And don't even get me started on the bride's stunning gown, which is all things awesome. Christina Szczupak Photography was there to capture all of the pretty and, trust me, you don't want to miss a single stunning image. Join me in the gallery for even more!
From the Bride... We made choosing a venue for our wedding the very first decision we made for the wedding because we wanted to plan everything around the site. We knew we wanted something unique and beautiful and wanted to include only our very closest friends and family. After months (and months) of looking at places all around the country, we finally decided that the Beach Club would be a great place for a wedding. Scott's grandparents live there and are members of Grand Harbor and we had visited them several times. Scott actually watched a wedding being set up once at the Beach Club and saw what a great setting it could be. We always knew that we wanted to be out in the beauty of nature for our wedding, so it was a perfect fit.
After we had the site nailed down, every thing else that we planned was based around the colors and feel of the club and the ocean and beach. We wanted lots of whites and neutrals with pops of bright coral and blue and green to mimic the natural environment. We also wanted to maintain a more modern look while still being inviting and comfortable. I had always wanted a sleek, streamlined dress and the one I found was perfect for the beach. We also decided on a navy suit for Scott instead of the traditional khaki that grooms wear at beach weddings because we wanted to have the colors stand out against the backdrop of the sand. I think the biggest take away from our wedding is that we wanted it to be beautiful, modern, embrace the natural surroundings and above all be a really awesome party with great food, great music and a great party for the people we care most about. I think we were successful since everyone is smiling in so many of the photos!
