Romantic Naples Garden Wedding

We’re packing a punch today with this Naples garden goodness from Justin DeMutiis and Sarah Tucker Events. A punch of sassy hot pink, that is. It’s the delightful hue that splashes the ‘maids and their bouquets from Victoria Blooms, a hue that crawls in the form of petals up the walls of The Escalante and adorns the sugary naked cake. The entire gallery? It’ll plaster a grin across your face.


From Sarah Tucker EventsTricia and Tyler’s wedding day in Naples, FL was nothing short of perfect. The venue alone can make you feel like you’re walking into a garden in the med, but the gorgeous florals dripping everywhere, the personal touches throughout, and the love Tricia and Tyler share made the whole day pure magic.

From the beautiful Bride… Tyler and I live in Chicago, we are both from the same town in upstate NY, but Naples has always had a place in our hearts so deciding to have our wedding there made sense. Wedding planning is not small fete especially from a far but our wedding day was exactly what I had envisioned all those long nights planning with my Mom. Our venue, that my parents scouted, set the tone for our theme, a garden party. Next it was the details, I couldn’t have done it without a supportive fiance, great parents, amazing vendors and every other person who had a hand in it.

It was the best day, from getting ready with my Mom and sisters, to having a special first look first with my Dad, to walking hand and hand with my husband to finally dancing all night with our family and friends who had traveled near and far to celebrate with us. I am so grateful for these memories, I still tear up looking at pictures and feel like I am the luckiest. Can we do it again next weekend?

Elegant Naples Wedding at La Playa Beach & Golf Resort

I’m pretty sure I let out a big fat squeal when I first laid eyes on this amazing Naples affair captured by Hunter Ryan Photo. Ok, let me be honest. I definitely squealed to high heavens. And you might find yourself doing the same. Because when you pair a perfectly pink palette with beautiful design and florals from Isn’t She Lovely Florals, you are sure to get a winner. And trust me, this one is a winner.


From Hunter Ryan PhotoNicole & Sean had their destination wedding at La Playa Beach & Golf Resort in Naples, FL. Nicole said: “I envisioned our wedding to be elegant, classic, and beautiful. I definitely leaned towards a somewhat formal wedding, but nothing stiff or stuffy. The venue was very elegant, but it also had a bit of a laid-back seaside vibe. We only had 60 or so guests, so it was an intimate event.

Our colors were pale pink, cream, and touches of gold. I love soft, muted colors for weddings. I would say my style is fairly traditional, and I wanted the event to have an elegant, Southern, classic vibe, like something you would see in the lowcountry in Charleston or Savannah. Sean and I are both Catholic, but we had a non-denominational Christian ceremony. The ceremony was very important to me, and it was a very tough decision to choose an outdoor ceremony instead of a traditional church ceremony. Ultimately, we chose our ceremony venue because it is stunningly beautiful and we loved the idea of having all of the wedding events in one place. The lawn at La Playa is beautiful, and I think it really reflected our style.”

Special touches from Nicole’s day were: the inclusion of Sean’s 2 adorable sons as groomsmen with their big seersucker bowties! :) To complement to elegant theme she wanted – the event designer – Krissy, hung a beautiful chandelier in their wedding arch. Nicole really loved the soft palette for her wedding and wanted to add her own personal stamp on it – so she DIY’d all her paper goods like her menu & table numbers with her die-cut machine! She also had custom monogrammed robes for all of her maids, as well as Sean’s mother and her mother. :) During cocktail hour they had some passed hors d oeuvres, but added a super fun gorumet macaroni & cheese station with all types of delicious toppings – like Truffle Mac n Cheese! They ended the night on a sweet note – having guests fill their own goodie bags full of treats from Nicole’s custom candy bar.

Nicole & Seans honeymooned on the slopes of Vail, Colorado!
