Paige and Chad’s sweet first look managed to nearly steal the show from the white sands, palm trees and bright blue skies of their small and intimate wedding at Placida Harbor Club in Florida. The day was full casual island life elegance, from giant mangrove trees to the classic seaside church ceremony. Tiger Lily Florist designed the fabulous tropical bouquet, boutonnieres and bridal headpiece made up of palm leaves, orchids and birds of paradise. Photographer Rad Red Creative took a boat with the couple to a private island to capture the post-wedding storm clouds and epic sunset.

Placida Harbor Club, Boca Grande, Florida
The most important thing was creating a day that was centered around the love that we share for each other. We wanted a small and intimate ceremony and reception where we could celebrate with the people who are most important to us.
Hire a good photographer! The day goes extremely fast, there’s a lot of little moments that you miss because of everything happening so quickly. Our photographers, Rad Red Creative, made us feel so comfortable and special throughout the entire day!
We chose our venue because of our love for the outdoors. Boca Grande is a very beautiful beach town with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. Our venue was perfect to portray the old Florida style, we used tropical florals and neutral shades as our accents.
We DIY-ed all of our floral centerpieces! We spent the night before on the floor of the reception venue piecing together the tropical centerpieces. Thank goodness for wholesale florists!
Every guest was someone who we truly cherish so being able to have all of our closest friends and family there to celebrate with us meant the world to us.
