Florida’s Gulf Coast has some beautiful locations for destination weddings; obviously, beach weddings are really popular.
One of the most amazing locations is the St Petersburg Lion’s Beach House on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island, known for its private access to beautiful white sand beaches and awesome sunsets.
Melissa and Steve’s beach wedding took full advantage of this beautiful beach and its sunset views. Their incorporation of tropical flowers and leaves, fun flamingos, and bright pops of color transported guests to a tropical paradise.
This welcome for their guests is so cute and so Florida beach wedding!
The beautiful bamboo arch is the perfect backdrop against the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beaches; the addition of beautiful protea, red ginger anthurium, and coral colored mokara orchids added a huge pop of color against the blue sky.
We loved the photos of the bride and groom sneaking a peak out the window of their ceremony site and as guests started to gather.
The bright colored tropical flowers from the ceremony were continued through Melissa’s cascading wedding bouquet and the groomsmen’s boutonnieres and pink flamingos added a fun touch to the aisle.
A perfectly timed wedding ceremony concluded just as the sun was beginning to set behind the newly married couple, as well as creating the perfect light for a stroll along the beach before their reception.
Sparkly pink sequined linen created a base for the reception décor, layered with gold charger plates, coral colored napkins, menu cards with tropical foliage and lots of bright tropical centerpieces and floating candles.
Fun touches throughout the night included a cigar roller and a sparkler sendoff on the beach for the new Mr. and Mrs.
