Fiona + Jason’s Jupiter Beach Resort wedding, overlooking the ocean, was a beautiful affair; blending tiffany colored seaside details with old world Scottish tradition & memorabilia. Not to mention a very special ring bearer. (hint: woof!)

The two were so wonderfully in love, it was evident from head to toe.

The whimsical blue wild flower bouquet, and white orchid boutonniere, were created by Simply Flowers. It was wrapped with a ribbon showing the bride’s Scottish Tartan (which is actually her family’s plaid pattern – the “Lindsay” tartan). This Lindsay Tartan ran through the event, along with heirloom military buttons which belonged to Fiona’s father. This kept his memory a mere touch away all day long.

Beneath a canopy of trees, hidden from the rain, they stole some tender moments.

Earlier in the day, Fiona readied in her suite.

The grooms wedding band was tungsten and platinum and the tungsten was engraved with the bride’s family knot – the Lindsay knot from Scotland.

A pin of the Lindsay Knot, was also worn by the bride.

Her hair and makeup, were meticulously applied and styled by Team Beauti.

Fiona was a vision in her stunning english lace gown.

Dripping in jewels she was positively regal.

In another suite, Jason had a bit of help prepping for the big event.

Once his cufflinks, another touch of family tradition, were on, the Groom (a previous company commander) was assisted by his first sergeant… they had both lead a US Army company (the Blacksmiths) together in Ramadi, Iraq

After a quick hug from dad, Jason headed out for the first look.

As Fiona raced thru the raindrops…

Jason awaited her under the trees.

The reveal was all he had hoped.

They were all smiles, despite the weather.

Halfway thru their photo session, the rain was replaced by blue skies and sunshine, just in time for the upcoming ceremony.

The outdoor ceremony, took place beneath the canopy of trees. Darines and the Simply Flowers crew, made certian, all the branches were adorned with crystals, and their signature flower filled glass globes hanging by tiffany ribbons.

Loved, loved, loved all the DIY details the couple created. The Bride conceived of them all, assisted by Cindy at Paper Palette Stationary in Jupiter.

An assortment of hand-painted metal tubs, were filled with lots of handy items for their guests.

This “Brush the Beach from your Feet” tin, was my favorite. Complete with tiffany colored paint brushes, for handy sand removal.

Another tin was filled with ice cold customized waters.

Next… matching Swarovski stoned flipflops.

And lastly, the custom seashell shaped fans/wedding programs, tied with ribbons.

The ceremony was very moving, with moments of tears + tradition, offset by some light hearted humor.

Through it all, their love shined through.

When it came time for the rings to be exchanged… down came the ring bearer… on all fours.

Diana from Royal Dog Walking / was on hand to make certain their beloved “fur-baby” Marlin, was prepared to walk down the aisle to make his all important delivery with his little Lindsay tartan custom made ring pillow harnessed to his back.

After making quite the entrance, he got a quick kiss from mom for doing such a great job.

The rings, in a matching pouch, were then passed around to all the guests, for them to each bless with their own special wishes for the couple…

before being exchanged between them.

After the kiss…

The newlyweds exited and headed straight for the beach.

I raced to the reception space, excited to see what other fab details they had in store for me to capture, and Ana Maja took them to the beach for some post ceremony photos.

They shared some intimate moments together beneath a great post storm sky.

However, they soon had some company. Here the groom and his boys look on at the blushing bride.

Shortly after, Jason went in for quite the passionate kiss… which apparently met with rave reviews.

Meanwhile, the cocktail hour was underway on the outdoor patio, as guest awaited the couples arrival.

Over at the reception space, the details did not disappoint. The cocktails tables had cymbidiums floating in tall vases, and in lieu of a sign in book, there was a “sign-in tree,” for guests to share their personal messages.

The table linens had tiffany floral sheers overlays, and clear silver trimmed chargers, which looked great with the matching chiavari chairs, all from Atlas Party Rental. Crystals dangled from the antique blue Hydrangea, white orchid, and willow vased centerpieces, again by Simply Flowers.

As for the favors and table cards… bit of back story… Bride is a commercial pilot, and many of the guests came from afar. Hence the super cute hand painted airplane, which dually served as a place card.

The tables were named with International Airport Codes. Guests from London, sat at the Heathrow table LHR, Ft. Lauderdale, sat at FLL… Palm Beach, PBI, Key West EYW… you get the idea. So clever.

After a while, the happy couple entered.

In true euro fashion, inspired by the royals famous fan masks, the guest greeted the couple with mirror images of themselves, as they entered to a sea of “fionas and jasons.”

The first dance soon followed.

And the night continued with lots more… just a bit crazier.

A game of blind folded musical chairs replaced the more typical garter toss.

The bride threw her tiny toss bouquet, then gifted her mother with her actual wedding bouquet.

It was a poignant moment, as again, it was wrapped with Fiona’s late dad’s military buttons.

The, oh so yummy, tiffany fondant cake with little white sugar flowers and the couples monogram was cut at night’s end.

Jason lovingly fed Fiona… well she kinda made sure of that… notice the “fork” threateningly positioned to assure Jason’s good behavior.

As their amazing evening came to a close, the shared a last kiss…

Then curled up on the couch for a warm and tender cuddle!!!!
