Today’s gorgeous Florida styled shoot styled by Kelly McWilliams Weddings might just have you planning a destination in the Sunshine State!

Here’s what photographer Amanda Turner from For The Moment Photography  had to say about the shoot:

A planner, a florist, and a photographer meet for coffee’s for a little inspirational coffee date. We envisioned a classic twist on the boho trends that are so alluring right now. We partnered with Tween Waters, a quaint resort where you can reserve a private beach front cottage. We choose an earthy color palette, with deep maroons, a few pops of blush pink, and a sprinkle of blush blue to lighten the palette up. The bride wore a stunning lace dress with flutter sleeves and a low back by WillowBy Watters and the groom wore a blush pink jacket by Savile Row with fun houndstooth elbow patches, he added a classic touch by wearing a black silk diamond point bow tie from The Tie Bar.

The florist and planner created a custom ceremony arch on the beach, choosing an triangle shape for pleasing leading lines. They dressed it in crawling ivy and dried palm fronds. In front of the arch they created a custom floral medallion on the ground.

The bride and groom brought their Ferret, Barry, along for their special elopement.

For this day, in classic South West Florida fashion, it had rained all day, but slowed down to a sprinkle right by sunset. This team set everything up in the rain with full determination. It delayed the entire timeline, but because this entire team worked so well together, the couple was able to enjoy their evening to the full. The good news in Florida is if it rains during the day, you are usually blessed with a beautiful sunset. But, I think this also shows the importance of choosing a team who can make things happen despite any difficult circumstances that may come up on the wedding day.
