We all love a beautiful beach, and for a wedding it is the most stunning decor courtesy of Mother Nature. Lindsay and Adam’s Jewish wedding in Clearwater Beach, Florida was filled with corals and greens and swaying trees. Photography by Brewer Photography & Videography.
From the bride: My college roommate and I were outside of a bar one fabulous July 4th night in Gainesville, Florida, home of the Gators (romantic, I know).
The roomie spotted a fellow classmate of hers and decided to say ‘hi’. And roomie introduced me to said classmate, and I instantly noticed classmate’s good looks and charm (and definitely suspected that I could check ‘Jewish’ off the list). You could say we hit it off. And I guess the rest is history.
Although, this intro would not be complete (nor would Adam approve of this ‘how we met’ tale) if I didn’t mention the fact that we had exchanged numbers–and I called him the next day. Yes, I called him. And yes, the next day.
And then we fell in love…
…Six years later (we were living in Miami), after he had been away for three months studying for his medical school board exams in Champaign, Illinois, I picked him up from the airport having anxiously awaited his return. I never could have guessed that he would get down on one knee in front of baggage claim and ask me to marry him.
From the bride: Our ceremony took place outside, overlooking Clearwater Beach, and the reception was inside the beautiful Sandpearl Resort. We wanted the wedding to reflect us. While we wanted everything to be beautiful, we really wanted our wedding to be fun. It was a long time coming, and we were ready to celebrate.
Corals and greens are bright and festive, but still sophisticated and I absolutely love coral. Everything tied together beautifully The flowers were primarily peonies and dahlias – my bouquet was white peonies and orchids. The invitations, flowers and my dress inspired the cake. The linens were chartreuse and coral, with white place settings, white Chiavari chairs and a white dance floor. It was fresh and gorgeous. The centerpieces were to die for, as was our chuppah. The space was amazingly perfect.
