The Florida coast at sunset is such a magical time, and what could be a more gorgeous setting for a wedding? This lovely waterside Sarasota wedding from NK Productions Wedding Planning has completely stolen our hearts! With a gorgeous seaside ceremony and soft blush hues, Chandler & Luke’s wedding was classically romantic and oh-so-sweet. The romantic vibes were made sweeter with Chandler’s gorgeous long sleeve lace gown from The White Magnolia Bridal Collection. The night ended with lots of dancing under the stars and string lights of the patio at Bay Preserve. Alisa Sue Photography was there to capture every moment, and we have Chandler here with us sharing about her favorite details and memories from her beautiful wedding day.

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

Korrin and Kari from NK Productions were absolutely amazing. They were incredibly helpful in the months leading up to the wedding and made sure everything was taken care of. On the day of, they were both on top of everything and made sure everything went smoothly. They made it so that Luke and I could enjoy every minute and not worry about a thing. I could not have done it without them!

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding (your vision, color, style, and location choices).

Since some of our favorite days, including the day we got engaged, are spent out on the water in Sarasota, Bay Preserve was an easy choice for our venue. We immediately fell in love with the southern charm of the brick estate coupled with the beautiful view of the water. I really wanted to incorporate the southern feel into the wedding style but also wanted it to be elegant. I went with the soft blush and ivory colors paired with the greenery.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

Having a really great planner was the most important thing to us. I knew that would ensure that the day went as smoothly as possible and would make things less overwhelming for me. I chose to splurge on hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and I – if you look good, you feel good!

What were your favorite parts of the day?

Our day was beyond what I ever could have imagined so it’s hard to pick out my favorite parts but two moments that I’ll never forget are when I was standing on the inside of the house looking out the back door with all my bridesmaids and parents by my side and I was watching as Luke drove up on the boat to the ceremony. All of our guests were already seated and the Voilin was playing. It was the most surreal moment. The second moment was when we Luke and I were sitting at our head table looking out at our guests and our beautiful venue and we just took it all in. We were able to just share that quick moment the two of us to realize how amazing it truly was.
