Who says a beach wedding can’t be elegant? While the groom in this Florida wedding may actually be wearing a pink tie, this mostly classic and formal affair shows you truly can have it all – with a dreamy oceanside ceremony and a delightfully sophisticated reception.
While many stylists would advise a bride to pick her dress according to her venue or wedding destination, we all know what’s often the truth – “The wand chooses the wizard Harry!” Oops! We mean the dress chooses the bride, of course! And that is absolutely the case in this graceful beach wedding.
Bride Samantha entered a bridal salon on a whim while visiting her mother, totally unprepared to meet her dream gown that day. And as it goes in life, she walked out head-over-heels for a simple and classic Carolina Herrera wedding dress totally apart from anything she had ever imagined. As we’ve advised in past wedding dress posts, don’t be afraid to try on something different!
And while beachy weddings often have more casual vibes, Samantha and Andrew’s yacht club venue was the perfect amount of class for a formal and absolutely elegant gown.
