Brian and I got married at the Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa in Jupiter, Florida. We always vacation in Jupiter because my parents have a home there and couldn't think of a better place to tie the knot. The beach is where we are both our happiest and we knew our guests would have a ball with all Jupiter has to offer.

I made our wedding programs with palm fans and cardstock. They were to be placed at each seat but with the wind they were handed out by the ushers

Our flowers came from Anna's Flowers in Jupiter, Fl. The girls held white hydrangeas with blush dendrobium orchids and calla lilies
I made the "sign our surf board" sign and had a wooden board made from Haole's Regret on Etsy. Everyone signed the board with a sharpie and we have it hanging up in our abode today :)
Isn't it romantic? I tried to kill as much of the overhead light as possible and have the entire room lit by candles. I remember walking in and after the first dance I told one of the waiters, "get these lights down more". The room darkened just enough to make the centerpieces light up the room. We had cylinder vases filled with orchids and floating candles on top, with smaller cases of roses and hydrangeas surrounding. I think they looked perfect, simple and elegant, just how I wanted them...
I made the menus and ordered a starfish for every place setting
The cake was made by Sweet Tiers in Hobe Sound, Florida. Buttercream and vanilla with orchids and our monogram.
our seashell ring "pillow" made by the lovely mother of the bride
We had vintage silverware with Mr. & Mrs. made for us by Rita from Beach House Living
The wedding video came tonight and it made my year so far - it was SO FUN to relive everything, and so was writing this blog post!
I hope you enjoyed all of the details, it was so fun to plan and the best night of my life <3
