Amanda and Dominic Castle showed that not all beach weddings are the same. Many times, the couple will not really do much for decor but simply rely on the beauty of the surroundings to magnify their day. This couple created an amazing atmosphere when they tied the knot at the La Playa Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. Â It is would have been wonderful for Amanda and Dominic to just get married on the beach. They traveled all the way from Manchester, England for this fairy tale wedding. However, they planned each detail of their day which added up to an incredible experience. Their wedding was definitely more than just two people exchanging their vows on the beach.Â First, let's look at the bride and groom. They looked stunning. Her gown had spaghetti straps but the chiffon was voluminous. It was complemented with the beautiful veil that she wore. They just flowed together. She put her hair in a bun and did not wear any jewelry. She did not need any. Her groom was nicely dressed in a suit with a gold tie which blended perfectly with the sand and her dress. They made a magnificent couple.
Even though the couple was dressed for the affair, it was a laid back event. The groom did not wear shoes. They even had a sign that said "if you are not barefoot, you are overdressed." After the ceremony, they released balloons into the air over the ocean.
They exchanged their vows under a canopy arch that was decorated with chiffon and flowers. Normally, couples put some chairs on the beach and the guests watch the wedding with the backdrop of the water. The arch gave the affair a nice touch.
They carried the beach theme to the reception. Each table had a wonderful centerpiece that represented a different location. It was a wooden box decorated with star fish and flowers. Each glass had a fish name tag to identify where people should sit. It was very creative and fit perfectly with the setting. It was a nice departure from the usual floral centerpiece.
The cake was a masterpiece. It has three tiers but the decorations were so unique. It was topped with beach chairs and was decorated with star fish and shells. How perfect for this beach affair?
If you are planning a beach wedding, don't think that can't do anything else but rely on the water for your atmosphere. As you can see, Dominic and Amanda added many elements that complemented and added to the magnificent setting. The little things that they did helped to create the fairy tale wedding that they had dreamed of from far across the sea.
