{ monica + jim | married! | palm beach inn}

Monica + Jim’s beachfront wedding was a beautifully orchestrated DIY event, at the Palm Beach Ocean front Inn.

The ocean was the perfect color blue that day, and made for the ultimate backdrop.

The gorgeous bouquets, of callah lilies, roses, and antique hydranges, were created by Camden Gardens Floral.

The lime paper parasols really complemented the floral color scheme.

The star fish was tied with ribbons… awaiting the rings.

And a plain white silk basket was decorated with ribbons, jewels and feathers.

Look how amazing it looks with the coordinating bow on the back of the flower girl’s gown.

All the bridesmaids wore the cutest “team monica” t’s…

and the bride wore a Mrs. DeVoursney tank.

Seems the new trend in wedding shoes is a wild splash of color.
To make these teal satin pumps even more special, the bride added rhinestone earrings to the front, and an I Do, to the soles.

Monica and the girls readied at the Palm Beach Inn.

Her mother held back the tears as she put hear daughter’s veil on.

Then a tender moment between mothers and daughters was exchanged.

The bride helped her dad on with his boutonniere.

Then posed for this natural light portrait.

Monica and the kids, headed out the the porch for a quick fashion photo session.

Meanwhile, at home, Jim and his boys were busy getting ready. Here they are posing in the purple music room.

Then a quick walk out onto the docks.

The bride had a ball at the beach.

And so did the little ones.

The bridesmaid’s color palette was awesome, and the ideal length for…

Jumping for joy!

Monica + Jim had a first look early on at the Inn.

The light streamed through these cream walled hallways just right, to make for a magical moment.

The ceremony took place on the rooftop patio overlooking the water.

The newlyweds headed for the beach.

What a cool wooden staircase.

The bridal party joined in.

Here comes Monica’s little girl, who served as her Maid of Honor.

As lovely as the beach is, the view poolside is just as nice.

The reception was held out on the deck, and the weather was all they could have wished for.

Little bags of Godiva Chocolates adorned each place setting.

The table was strewn with white orchids, with a monogrammed lantern in the center, surrounded by floating votives.

The sign in, was in the form of a message in a bottle.

After writing a note to the happy couple, guests rolled up their note, put a ring around it, and popped it into a nearby bottle. What a fun idea!

A weathered box, held the teal fans to keep attendees cool.

And cards were placed in this interesting wine cork cage.

Habaneros Cigars were custom rolled, for the guests.

The reception was filled with lots of love + dancing.

The bride and groom danced…

The bride and her dad danced…

Music played…

Toasts were made…

Boquets were tossed…

And cakes were cut…

And a great time was had by all.
