Beachy Florida Wedding Day | Melissa + John

I love when we get to travel to unique places for weddings! John + Melissa got married on an exclusive island only accessible by car ferry at a resort where the only means of transportation is golf cart. Does it sound like we jumped the ocean to a tropical island in the Caribbean? Nope! All it took was a 2 + a half hour drive north + a 5 minute ferry ride to arrive at the beautiful Palm Island Resort off the coast of Tampa. The wedding details fit perfectly with their island wedding. The bamboo aisle runner + burlap covered bamboo ceremony arch made their ceremony set-up one of my favorites of all time. Their personalized details at the reception had their guests buzzing all night. From their monogrammed wooden oar drink stirrers that they used as escort cards to the stunning simplicity of their palm frond + candle lined guest tables, this wedding took tropical island elegance to a whole new level!

Their wedding was also recently featured on the national Carats & Cake wedding blog:
