Vero Beach Wedding at Orchid Island Beach Club from 1313 Photography

There is pretty and then there is this next little Vero Beach number from 1313 Photography. Perfect parts pretty and preppy, with elegance weaved throughout – it’s safe to say we are smitten with every.single.image. The gallery is overflowing with all the sweet details, from the vibrant flowers to the stylish stationery from Bella Figura, and you it’s all sitting pretty right here.

From the bride … As if Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby and the year’s Supermoon were not enough to celebrate– we decided to get married on May 5, 2012 in Vero Beach, Florida. The sun, sand and tropical palm tree breeze made for a wedding celebration in paradise. Following the wedding mass at Holy Cross Catholic Church, guests were welcomed poolside with pink champagne and an extravagant seafood bar at the Orchid Island Beach Club. Custom made escort cards with pearl head pins were displayed on an elaborate gold and Alencon lace board to direct guests to their table.

Following cocktail hour, guests indulged in a colorful and delicious dinner of truffle grapefruit vinaigrette citrus salad & a dual entree of lobster and filet mignon, stuffed spinach artichoke bottoms, roasted tomatoes and fingerling potatoes. The Orchid Island’s Beach Club green walls, the stunning views of the blue ocean’s water and the vibrant corals and pinks used to make the floral centerpieces gave the room a playful, tropical and colorful flair.

Assorted Lilly Pulitzer patterned picture frames served as table numbers and added to the ballroom’s festive decor. Dessert featured over six cupcake flavors created by Casereccio Speciality & Fine Cakes (a previous winner of Cupcake Wars and one of the four remaining contestants now on The Next Great Baker) — chocolate fudge sundae, mocha cappuccino, lemon summer berry chiffon, champagne strawberry and key west key lime topped with a glistening fresh fruit. Guests danced the night away under a breathtaking “Supermoon” (the largest full moon of the year) to the tunes of Jerry Wayne’s Private Party Band.

Flower girl dresses for our 3 nieces were each hand embellished with a pearl sash and bow matching their pearl monogrammed satin lace and pearl flower girl baskets. Handmade satin, Alencon lace and pearl Ring Pillows were carried by our nephews and hand assembled, ribbon tied and lace punch detailed Wedding Mass Programs.

Vero Beach Surprise Proposal + Engagement Session from Paper Antler

How’s this for romantic?  One moment you’re chillin’ on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, soaking in the sun with the love of your life, the next moment he’s down on one knee asking you to spend all eternity by his side.  Gives you chills, no?  Well, that’s exactly how it happened for this lovely bride-to-be and, to top it all off, every last minute was captured “super covert ninja style” by her sister and brother-in-law, the oh-so-talented photogs behind Paper Antler, who followed it all up with a gorgeous e-session on the beach.  Best. Day. Ever.  Click here for all of the pretty.

From Paper Antler… A couple of weeks ago, Jonny and I had the honor and privilege of capturing my sister’s engagement in Florida. (Thank you Eric for including us!)  In our super covert ninja-style, we snuck up behind their breakfast date on Vero Beach, and documented Eric getting down on one knee and proposing to his best friend. The best part was after Rachel realized what had just happened and that we were there photographing it all, she flew into Eric’s arms sending them both tumbling into the sand.

After spending the rest of the day soaking in the sun and the knowledge that they were getting married, they spruced up and we grabbed some engagement photos as the sun was setting.

These two are so beautifully created for one another and we could not be more excited and proud to call them friends and family.

Vero Beach Hotel & Spa Wedding from Captured Photography by Jenny

If you ask me, jetting off to Florida with your nearest and dearest sounds like the perfect way to say “I Do” and for this well-traveled duo it was everything they imagined it would be (and MORE) with bundles of drop-gorgeous florals from Pink Pelican, a stunning seaside ceremony at the Vero Beach Hotel & Spa and an entire weekend to celebrate with their closest family and friends.  A three day extravaganza snapped up by Captured Photography by Jenny?  That’s a wedding we most definitely want to be at. Join us in the full gallery for a total swoon fest.

From the Bride… We both moved a lot growing up and have lived all around the country. We chose to have a destination wedding because traveling seemed to make sense for our big celebration. We wanted our friends and family to feel like they were on vacation — to enjoy a full weekend of sunny revelry and relaxation. Vero Beach is naturally beautiful and easy-going, and the Vero Beach Hotel is both luxurious and friendly. The style of the wedding was sleek and contemporary, and decorations were simple in order to augment the natural surroundings. The focus was good food, drink, music, friends and, of course, love.
