Alyssa and Hunter chose to say “I do” on the waterfront in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. Their outdoor ceremony was sheltered by a canopy of Banyan trees and offered stunning views of the aqua blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The couple decided to enhance the beauty of their venue’s natural surroundings by adopting a nautical theme for their wedding decor. The aqua bridesmaids dresses and decorative accents gave the reception an extra-beachy feel and Hunter, a merchant marine, looked so handsome in his dress whites!
Dinner was served family style after Alyssa and Hunter made their entrance descending the grand staircase at the historic Powel Crosley Estate and shared their first dance as husband and wife. After several touching and hilarious toasts were given by friends and family, the guests danced the night away, pausing briefly to watch Alyssa and Hunter cut their beautiful, ocean waves styled wedding cake. The glow of the sunset on the gulf and the string lights that hung over the outdoor space created a truly magical ambiance for this inspired celebration!
