Vanessa & Blake WeeksSale e Pepe | Marco Island, Florida
Wedding Theme: Whimsical Beach Front
Planning for Vanessa and Blake’s wedding started in November 2021 and just shy of a year later with the help of some incredible vendors, their wedding dreams came to life in Marco Island, Florida.
Transforming the space
Sale e Pepe in Marco Island, Florida offers the best of both worlds with their covered terrace that over looks the beach and access to their white sandy beach for ceremony and cocktail hour. The views from this waterfront property are hard to beat!
Vanessa and Blake held their wedding ceremony on the waterfront terrance, which later transformed into their reception space.
Table Design: Black and gold tapered candle holders intertwined with multi-toned greenery garland accented with smokey glass votive candles. All white linen complemented the black menus, customize escort cards and glass table settings.
Personal Florals: The all-white floral bouquets held the most magical organic shape which brought that whimsical touch to their wedding design.
Setting the vibe: Furniture grouping for the cocktail hour, which took place on the beach, brought a neutral-organic element to their modern design. Later these seating elements turned into a lounge space for the reception which complimented their live cigar roller.
The Small Details
Every wedding, big or small, should have a catering and design focused layout to ensure the many elements of your big day come together seamlessly.
Incorporating small details such as escort cards are not just a customized touch your guests are sure to notice they are also a great tool when paired with an organized catering layout.
When building out a wedding timeline it is important to keep in mind that one size does not fit all. Factoring in how the couple wants the day to feel and ensuring correct placement/ timing of all vendors is crucial to a successful event.
Elements important to Vanessa and Blake:
- Starting the day early so the bridal party didn’t feel rushed
- Sunset pictures
- Speeches for not just bridal party but parents too
- Time for the couple to enjoy their reception
- Group send-off; sparklers
The sunset on Marco Island was absolute perfection which made scheduling time for these portraits for the Bride and Groom oh so worth it!
Not long after the sunset their romantic reception transformed into a party they will never forget
