This garden ceremony was a beautiful surprise!
Days Remembered by ND Tampa Wedding Planners loved working with Jennifer and Rich to plan their wedding at our preferred property, Postcard Inn on the Beach! The ceremony was to take place out on the beach and the reception was going to be held in the garden, but the Florida weather wanted Jennifer and Rich to switch things up a bit! Our team, along with the PCI staff, decided to play it safe and move to our rain back up in the ballroom. The ceremony was moved to the garden so we could keep the outdoor element!
For the ceremony, the large tree in the garden took the place of the arch that was going to be used on the beach. Beautiful flowers and white draping hung from the tree while multiple sized lanterns were at the base of the tree. Jennifer’s two daughter’s and Rich’s daughter were the beautiful bridesmaids dressed in burgundy. When Jennifer walked down in her gorgeous, light pink dress she looked stunning!
After the ceremony, guests were excused to the hallway and ballroom patio for cocktail hour. In the hallway guests were able to sign a canvas of the couple as their guest book, grab their super cute glass favor and grab a drink from the bar! The reception took place in the ballroom and the centerpieces incorporated beautiful flowers and lanterns. The lanterns from the ceremony were transported to the ballroom where they were placed in front of the sweetheart table.
Jennifer and Rich shared a special first dance, Jennifer and her father had a surprising and fun dance, while Rich and his mom shared a sweet dance. Jennifer’s two daughters gave the sweetest toasts – there wasn’t a dry eye in the room! Jennifer snuck out to go change into a second dress and the newlyweds went down to the beach for some sunset photos. When they returned they got on the dance floor with all their friends and family and danced the night away!
