Lissette and Dan - A Shabby Chic Seaglass-Hued Wedding

Lissette and Dan exchanged sacred vows in a traditional ceremony at Christ the King Catholic Church before their breezy Spring reception at the Davis Island Garden Club.  In this waterfront outdoor setting, the bridal party's tiffany blue chiffon dresses beautifully accented the soft and delicate cream colored roses and tulips.  Centerpieces featured assorted ceramic pitchers filled with alternating white flowers, while candle filled mason jars paired with bistro lighting brought warmth to the natural setting.  Guests signed a special bottle of champagne as a unique guestbook alternative, which the couple would later enjoy on their anniversary.  Among so many friends and family, it’s easy to get caught up in the festivities of the day, so this gorgeous bride and groom enjoyed a few intimate moments together at their sweetheart table set in the secluded gazebo before the party kicked off. For a sweet treat, guests enjoyed pedestals filled with cupcakes from Wright's deli, the couple's favorite local bakery.
