Beach weddings are quite lovely in theory, but they can be difficult to pull off. You never really know, the shores might be feeling a little cheeky that day and summon the wind gods to blind everyone with sand and demolish the decor and carry the officiant away like Mary Poppins and LOOK OUT ITS A TSUNAMI
Nah, just kidding.
That rarely happens…
Don’t let that worry you though, I’ve got a real good one for y’all to ogle today!
Here before you is a beach wedding that was flawless. No loss of vision, no flying priest, and no giant wave. On the contrary, the weather behaved that beautiful November evening, and everything was stunning- right down to the lively couple.
Amanda and Rick chose to wed at The Edge of America, with the sand beneath their feet and the sea as their backdrop. It was a very fine choice indeed! They preferred an intimate wedding with close friends and family to witness the nuptials. Amanda was almost always laughing or smiling with a kind of smile thats make you want to smile. An infectious joy, if you will. Rick would gaze upon his bride like you would expect any man to look at a soul he so purely adores.
The theme was simple, clean, beachy. The drift wood arbor, the gold coral centerpieces, the various graceful floral arrangements- they all worked hand in hand to create that breezy, beachy vibe.
After the ceremony, the party made their way to a charming beach house where they dined and danced to their heart’s content! Watching Rick and Amanda- especially Amanda- relax and cut loose was priceless. What an enjoyable couple- with great taste to boot!
See? Didn’t that make you swoon? Thank goodness for Rick and Amanda and their good taste in weddings! 🙂
Cheers to this sweet bride and groom!
And cheers to beach weddings!
