Veronica and Rocky - A Rustic Coastal Wedding

Veronica and Kevin (Rocky) met in middle school and were friends for a decade before they reconnected in college.  Rocky proposed while they were on a trip to Puerto Rico for Veronica's 29th Birthday.  They chose the Tampa Bay Watch in Tierra Verde as their venue to reflect their love of the water and their many memories in the area.  Natural coastal elements like driftwood, lanterns, and crates were incorporated into the decor, and a real canoe was filled with bottled beers and ice for a unique bar!  Neutral colors of ivory, grey, and green were reflected from the attire to the bouquets to the centerpieces, and the tables were named after types of coastal birds and fish.  And in true coastal style, guests were sent home with custom koozie favors from the bride and groom.

The couple's dog was the cutest ring bearer ever!

The bride's bouquet featured hydrangea, garden roses, mums, succulents, dusty miller, eucalyptus, & berries.

Crates, lanterns, and driftwood accented the ceremony aisle along with a decorative chalkboard program

A driftwood arch made for a stunning focal point at the waterfront ceremony

Guys wore classic grey suits with ivory boutonnieres

Bridesmaids wore neutral dresses and carried bouquets of fluffy hydrangea and seeded eucaplyptus

Tables featured grey and ivory linens, neutral centerpieces, and wine bottle favors tucked into koozies

Cocktail tables surrounded the outdoor dance floor beneath a canopy of bistro lights

The simple wedding cake was adorned with crysanthemums and perched atop wood crates
