Sean and Noreen, together with their little one, had an amazing celebration of their love. The couple wed at the beautiful St. Pete Beach, Florida. They garnered praises and awes as from onlookers as they walked their way from the hotel to the ceremony. You’d be truly in awe at what this couple had done for their wedding. And it is only suitable to do a sand ceremony where there’s plenty of from where they were standing. Sean and Noreen, this is just the beginning of your happy ever after. We wish you all the best, congratulations!
The overall story is a beach wedding can be a relaxing setting for all types of weddings including multi-cultural and every religion. Nature provides all the decor you need and you can concentrate on the beautiful ceremony instead. We flew from Maryland to St. Pete Beach, FL to get our families out of the cold and enjoy the sun.
Wedding Outfit Inspiration:
I found a beautiful chiffon bridal dress with a courset inside so it was both beach appropriate because of the flowing fabric, but still let me show off my curves. My husband wore a traditional tux and it still looked great, even on a beach.
Favortie Part Of The Day:
My favorite part of the day was walking towards the ceremony site. As I crossed the hotel I had so many ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ and ‘you look beautiful’ and ‘congratulations’ from random well-wishers which was also an unexpected perk of having a wedding at a public beach. My heart was pounding as I walked to the ceremony site I was very happy with the outcome and the beautiful setting.
The Do-It-Yourself Projects:
my veil was my semi-DIY project. I made Etsy my best friend. There are a lot of good vendors with quality products and much lower prices than mainstream stores. I bought two cathedral length veils with a blusher. A funny mistake happened – my vendor first sent me an ivory color veil which I ordered. However, when the second veil shipped in it was creme. I ended up bringing my veils into work and my co-workers helped me sew them together. It not only added volume and made my veil look lush, the creme sitting on top of the ivory made it pop even more. A really pleasant surprise.
The Highlights From The Ceremony & Reception:
The highlights from the ceremony was that it was only 10 minutes long! That left us a lot of time to enjoy our family, taking beautiful photos and the weather. The reception was held in a small private dining room. It was like having a family dinner and was very enjoyable.
There wasn’t a theme for the ceremony and reception other than to go as simple as possible, make everyone comfortable with accommodations, invest in a wonderful photographer, a great dress and tux and delicious food.
The parts of the ceremony we thought were most memorable were the short speeches our fathers gave. But also all the on-lookers and photobombers who were taking their own photos of us as well! It added to the fun and gave us all a boost of happiness to be showered with congratulatory wishes from all directions
