Andrea and Neil’s sure do know how to put together a beach themed wedding. You can tell on how they incorporated a lot of beach related things to their wedding. They had a photobooth with Nautical stripes backdrop, sharks cutouts from cardboard and a buoyant as props. The welcoming table was covered with fishnets, and with their engagement photos. Also at the table was an oar (it was their guestbook alternative!). The signs with Mr. & Mrs. were fish shaped and speaking of fish, instead of table numbers they used different fish names. Different DIY signages were also all over the venue. Congratulations to the couple on tying the knot (literally)!

Andrea and Neil are the perfect couple. They have such incredible chemistry, and together they create magic. Both share a love of nature, fishing under the sun and commitment to Neil’s daughter, Jordan. Andrea’s laugh perfectly compliments the twinkle in Neil’s eyes when he looks at her.
Photographing this amazing wedding was truly an honor. The day created with love as family and friends helped make the magic for this “DIY” wedding. All shared the love, celebration and joy of their day. Every aspect of this wedding from the decor, to food to set up made with love by either the Bride and Groom or their family. The theme for this wedding was rustic nautical. The couple used sailing knots, ropes, mason jars and fishing hooks for their decor and save-the-date cards. The tablescapes were wooden plates and silverware, mason jars, baby’s breath and each table was named by a different fish. Cay Point Villas was the perfect property for this intimate wedding accenting the rustic nautical details of the wedding with the beach villas. The weather-worn steps, sea grass, and sea grapes proved to be the perfect backdrop for the formal portraits.
The day truly was an amazing effort as people simultaneously got ready, assembled centerpieces and cooked food. The heartfelt and correctly executed details of the day were rustic nautical chic, heartwarming and beautiful. The food lovingly prepared was a tremendous success. All enjoyed the abundant sweets such as cookies and milk and mouth-watering cupcakes. Above all the atmosphere, it was truly one of love and family. So much work went into making this a very special and meaningful day for Andrea and Neil because of how amazing and loved they are as a couple. Moreover, guests were deeply moved by the unique and special moments of the day including Neil and Adrea’s vows to Jordan. The couple tied a meaningful sailing knot during the ceremony. Even their reception had unique details instead of cutting the cake they shared an ice cream sundae of their favorite flavor. Guests danced the night away on the beach under the stars and took breaks for the home made nautical themed fun photo booth.
