I was inspired by the tablecloth’s modern link pattern, and I decided that it would be perfect for incorporating into the other details too. My favorite detail of all this? Definitely the placecards and escort cards- A&P Designs created square cards with rounded corners that matched the link design perfectly!

Colorful, eclectic, and taking place at the coolest Florida outdoor venue, this pink and aqua wedding from Concept Photography is full of lots of fun, fabulous details, and tons of love! Having fallen in love in Florida, Megan and Brandon wanted their wedding to embody the tropical nature of Florida, and their venue, Paradise Cove, did just that! Megan is here with us today sharing more about her wedding:

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

We had a wedding coordinator the day of the wedding that was great!  She helped set up all the escort cards and programs and everything else. I don’t know what we would have done without her.  I was pretty much on my own when it came to the planning process. My husband basically told me from the beginning that whatever I wanted to do was fine with him, so he helped pick out the venue and the groomsmen attire, but that was about it. I spent a lot of time on weddingwire.com looking up reviews of different vendors, and tried to pick details that I knew I would love. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest initially. Most of the details didn’t come together until the very end.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

I wanted to work with small businesses as much as possible.  The florist was a wonderful woman who worked out of her home near Daytona Beach. All the paper goods were customized and created by this amazing girl that lives in Chicago. I got silk robes for getting ready, the cake topper, the chair signs, the banners, and the beer koozies all on Etsy.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

We had a lot of guests travel from out of town, so we wanted them to experience a tropical Florida wedding. But when you google “tropical wedding” to get ideas, it’s all oranges and purples and birds of paradise, I just didn’t like what I was coming across. So I tried to combine my tropical idea with pink, turquoise, aqua, yellow, and I wanted a rustic/vintage/tropical vibe. I don’t know if that’s actually the vibe I accomplished but I know I love how everything came together.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

It’s hard to pick a favorite thing, because the day came together so perfectly! I loved how our wedding was fairly small with only about 40 guests. We took most of our photos before the ceremony, so we were able to mingle during cocktail hour and really interact with everyone. Everyone was so happy, the weather was gorgeous, the flowers were amazing. It was all just perfect. My husband and his groomsmen made their entrance in a speed boat with M83 – Midnight City playing in the background. We had a perfect view of them from the bridal suite, it was awesome. I loved how beautiful my bridesmaids looked! I have way too many favorite things I guess.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

It can be very overwhelming to plan a wedding. It’s easy to get caught up in all the little details, like table numbers and programs. At some point you have to stop looking at Pinterest and start focusing on what you like and what will make the wedding represent you and your husband. Make sure to splurge on a great photographer! Oh, and the beer koozies were a big hit.

Megan’s advice is SO good- it’s what I tell brides all the time… at some point, you have to start focusing on what YOU want, not what you see everywhere else! And I love that you can tell that Megan’s details were true to her and Brandon- from the tropical location, to the unique florals!

How are you planning on making your own wedding represent you and your future spouse? I’d love to hear what you have planned!

A few weeks ago, we talked about how to know if you should have a destination wedding or not. I think destination weddings are awesome for the right people and the right destination, so I thought today would be the perfect time to tell you about one of my favorite destination wedding locations- Atlantis!

5 Reasons To Have An Atlantis Wedding

My husband and I were lucky enough to experience Atlantis over the summer as part of a wedding press trip, and my goodness, it was so perfect! I learned all about the destination wedding options that Atlantis offers, including their newest venue, Ocean’s Edge- which is literally right at the edge of the clear blue ocean. The beautiful setting of the Caribbean is just one of the many amazing reasons to have an Atlantis wedding, but I wanted to share a few more of those reasons with you…

1. Atlantis Is Easy To Get To!

Flights to Nassau are easy to find, it’s close to the US, and the Nassau airport is easy to get in and out of. Once you get to Nassau, Paradise Island (where Atlantis is located) is a quick 30 minute drive away. Bonus: Everyone in Nassau is super friendly!

2. Beautiful beaches and Caribbean ocean views

Oh yes, gorgeous beaches and views are most definitely a reason for getting married at Atlantis! The pure white sand and clear, aqua blue water is reason enough for me! But I’ll let some of my photos speak for themselves…

3. The newest Atlantis venue, Ocean’s Edge

The newest wedding venue at Atlantis is Ocean’s Edge at The Cove, and it’s stunning! It is really and truly at the edge of the ocean, with the crystal clear aqua water of the Caribbean as the backdrop. Ocean’s Edge is the eighteenth wedding venue at Atlantis, and in my eyes, the most gorgeous. It’s private, and has everything you could possibly need for your destination wedding- an enormous oceanside beach deck, a beautifully landscaped event lawn, an indoor pavilion, and even an outdoor patio. This unique design enables you to have both your wedding ceremony and reception all in one seaside space at Ocean’s Edge.

4. There is something for everyone

The awesome thing about the Atlantis resort is that there is something for everyone! If you have kids, they will love Aquaventure for some waterslide thrills before or after the wedding. The older people attending might spend some time at the casino, and if you want to pamper yourself, the spa is absolutely amazing. My favorite area of Atlantis is The Cove, which is also the resort building that is closest to the Ocean’s Edge wedding venue. It’s modern, chic, and gorgeous, and it even has an adults-only pool area! Oh, and did I mention that Bobby Flay has a restaurants at The Cove? It’s seriously a foodie’s dream! With all of these wonderful things, plus many more I didn’t even mention, having an Atlantis wedding could definitely double as a vacation getaway for all of your friends and family!

5. It’s easy!

Getting married in the Bahamas is easier than you might think. There are no blood tests or long waiting periods, like some Caribbean locations have. LoveAtlantis.com states, “The Bahamas Law states that the couple must be a resident in The Bahamas for 48 hours prior to the date of the application. HOWEVER, couples can file for their paperwork the next day after their arrival i.e. if you arrive on Wednesday you can apply for your license on Thursday. You will be required to bring the copy of Bahamas Immigration form which you receive upon entering the Bahamas. This form will state the length of time you will be staying in the Bahamas.”

In addition to the legality of getting married in the Bahamas, Atlantis has several wedding packages available, so there is sure to be something that will fit with your budget and needs. Anything from eloping with just the two of you, to a totally custom wedding, the Love Atlantis team can make it happen! And PS- I highly recommend Ocean’s Edge! It’s seriously the most gorgeous location! [There is a great info page about getting married at Atlantis found here.]

So there you have it! 5 reasons to have an Atlantis wedding! Our experience there was awesome, and I know that a wedding experience at Atlantis would be even better! Are any of you considering a destination wedding? Have you thought of Atlantis as a potential location?
