The stars aligned perfectly on a Friday evening for Maddy and Zach to welcome their family and friends to their wedding weekend celebration in style. Everyone joined together at Monet Monet for a delicious dinner and toasts to the bride and groom telling the funniest stories about their backgrounds and their beginnings as a couple. I always love hearing toasts at the rehearsal dinner and listening to what makes this couple special and the unique traits that bring together their family and friends from all walks of life to join them in celebrating their marriage. After dinner, it was off to the beach at Watercolor, Florida for a bonfire that you just had to see to believe. It was a shoes off-blankets on kind of evening with a full bar and plenty of fixings for s’mores!
Their wedding day started in the heart of Watercolor and as “Going To The Chapel” blared on speaker, the girls popped champagne with the bride and the guys played beer pong with the groom. Maddy got dressed with the help of her two sisters and mother and let her bridesmaids see her gown for the first on the front porch.
After that, everything got rolling on to Cerulean Park where Zach saw Maddy for the first time. There were sweet tears and beautiful vows read. I am fortunate to spend most of my time with the couple on their wedding day during couples portraits and my time with Maddy and Zach was such a delight. They were so easy going and just happy to be together and enjoying their wedding day; and I was just lucky to be there!
Once their beautiful ceremony was finished, the wedding party celebrated together for a few minutes and their friends went off to celebrate at the cocktail party while the couple ran off to the beach for a few more moment between just the two of them.
After the dances, cake cutting and toasts, the party started with plenty of signature cocktails and dancing – oh and of course…a confetti cannon!

Maddy and Zach’s reception was full of greenery and personal details perfectly planned by Shelby Peaden Events. Shelby and her team used the green trim and natural wood accents of WaterColor Boathouse to their advantage when coordinating with Myrtie Blue for the final design of the reception. Beautifully married were a muted palette of florals along with seasonal greenery, creating a reception space that had every guest pulling out their phone to photograph it! Maddy and Zach’s guests completed the evening with a surprise confetti cannon to send the newlywed’s off in style.
