Coral Boca Grande Wedding

Have I told you lately that coral-splashed weddings own my heart? It’s true, they do. And when they come hand in hand with the cutest little flower girls, seashells and sand in your toes? I love them even more. Our friends at K and K Photography stood behind every pretty moment that sits in this sweet gallery and it’s all so, sooo lovely.

From the beautiful Bride… All the vendors we worked with were extremely helpful and did a fabulous job of helping us to plan an extraordinary event that our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed. Most importantly Mark and I had an incredibly special day that we will cherish the memories of for a lifetime.

Mark and I really wanted our children to be part of the ceremony so my daughter Tiffany was my maid of honor and his son Max was his best man. My son Zac also stood up for Mark and walked me down the aisle since my father passed away many years ago. Mark’s daughter Olivia and my Goddaughter Sydney also stood up for me. Neither Olivia nor Sydney had ever been flower girls when they were young so that is what they wanted to be in the wedding. This was perfect because we have two English Bulldogs, Bentley and Brutus, who are very much a part of our family so we made them ring bearers and had them walk down the aisle with the girls. I made their tuxes which was the perfect distraction during the wedding planning!

Boca Grande Wedding from Vitalic Photo

If we’re being totally honest here, I’ve never actually heard of Boca Grande (I know, shameful being a Gulf Coast resident myself), but after this gorgeous wedding it’s pretty much top of my vacation list right now. Vitalic Photo’s images of the day are something out of a dream – a really bright and happy dream – and they have totally convinced me to pack my flip flops and go!

From the photographer… Erin Leigh Littrell and Matthew David Turner’s destination wedding in Boca Grande was the perfect intimate affair on a July summer night. With most of their family and guests being from Oklahoma, the island was full of golf carts zipping around to the ceremony and reception. The quaint Baptist church and Gasparilla Inn Beach Club provided the perfect venues for a Florida West Coast wedding.

Boca Grande, Florida Wedding from K & K Photography

Preppy meets classic just might be my favorite combination ever.  Aside from the fact that they are both seriously gorgeous ways to style your day, it’s that feel of a classic celebration mixed with a dose of prepster whimsy that kind of takes a wedding from downright pretty to “oh my gosh, I’ve never seen something so amazing.”  And in the case of this stunning Boca Grande affair, it’s all of the aforementioned mixed with some of the sweetest details you will ever see, including beautiful bridesmaid frocks from Julie Brown Designs, fab paper goods from Dabney Lee and a whole host of breathtaking images from K&K Photography.  See them all in the full gallery.

From the Bride… We fell in love with Boca Grande when I surprised Justin with a weekend getaway at The Gasparilla Inn & Club for his 30th birthday. It was the most amazing, romantic place we had ever visited and we knew it was the perfect fit (even though we had already started planning our wedding in Maine). I am so happy that we chose a destination wedding because it allowed us to really spend time with our guests at the various events we planned (a cocktail party on Thursday, a golf tournament and a welcome dinner on Friday, and a brunch on Sunday), rather than frantically trying to visit with everyone in one night.

We wanted our wedding to feel like “us,” so we skipped lots of the traditions that didn’t feel right for the intimate night we had in mind (announcing the bride, groom, and the bridal party, the bouquet and garter toss, etc.). Instead, we focused on personal touches, like the salt favor escort cards that my mom and her girlfriends put together the morning of the wedding and the programs that we glued to painted wood so they would not blow away during our beachfront ceremony. The bridesmaid’s dresses were really the jumping off point for the “look” we were going for, and one of my best friends designed the amazing invitations, menus and table numbers to go with our theme. For the dinner, we wanted everyone to feel like they were at an intimate dinner party rather than a typical wedding reception. We chose long feasting tables covered in clustered floral arrangements and tons of candles and mercury glass that my mom and I found months before. The real icing on the cake was our DJ, Jonathan Cortez, singing live throughout dinner. It was so special and enchanting. I remember walking into that room, with all of the candles and the lit fire, and looking at Justin and feeling overwhelmed with the beauty of it all and the love that I felt for him.

It is amazing how fast the night flew by, but we are so thankful to Jeff at K&K Photography for capturing every moment. He is so incredibly talented and has such a natural ability to capture every moment while also making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. We feel so blessed that so many of our friends and family were able to come celebrate with us, and we are just so thrilled to start the next chapter of our lives together!
