This past weekend I had the honor of traveling down to Naples, Florida for a beautiful destination wedding. Mary and Brad’s Naples Beach wedding was all things nautical, intimate, full of laughter, monograms, and overall fun. Today, I am excited to share more about this lovely couple and sweet moments from their beautiful wedding day.
They made it a long weekend of taking in every moment with each other, their family and closest friends. Choosing Naples for their wedding location over a year ago as the place that they would say I do was perfect for their day.
Mary and Brad are best friends, they make each other laugh, they cherish their relationships with their friends, and they love their families dearly. They live in the moment, give thought to what matters most and encourage those around them to do the same.
When I asked what they envisioned seeing from their wedding day, Mary said she wanted to see the love and remember the reason why they got married.
There were many special moments throughout their day, and one of those moments was Mary sharing a first look with her dad.
When she was a little girl and would get dressed up for dance recitals or family gatherings, she’d always go downstairs and ask her dad, “Daddy how do I look?”. His response would always be, “You look marvelous!”. (from Mary)
Isn’t that soooo sweet!!!
The entire bridal party and guests stayed at the Hilton Naples Florida hotel where the reception also took place.
After getting ready at the Hilton, we headed down to Vedado Beach for their beachside ceremony.
The wedding colors were a beautiful blend of nautical, classic navy, and pinks. The bridesmaids wore navy dresses and the guys had a classic and dapper beachside vibe.
Mary and Brad, thank you for the honor to be part of your day! It has been the best getting to know you both and exchange emails that almost always included punctuated smiley faces. Have an amazing honeymoon with more fun in the sun and sand between your toes 🙂
