Nocatee Crosswater Hall Florida Wedding. Stephanie and Brian were feted with a simple, soft, and sweet wedding in Florida. Their traditional ceremony at St. Joseph's Catholic Church was followed up with a stunning and bright reception at the lovely Nocatee Crosswater Hall. Light gray was the color of choice. Stephanie first incorporated the color with her peep toe heels.
She looked picture-perfect with a strapless sweetheart gown, complete with ruching and a beaded waistband.
The ruching echoed in the bridesmaids strapless gray dresses, as well. The flowers for Stephanie and Brian's wedding were beautifully elegant and classic. Hydrangea, cream roses, eucalyptus, and assorted greenery were pulled together and tied with twine.
Brian looked handsome in a dark gray suit, white shirt, and black striped bowtie.
His groomsmen wore similar coordinated looks and the group of guys paused for a cool moment in their shades before the ceremony.
Stephanie was escorted down the aisle to her awaiting groom. Stephanie and Brian were wed in front of a gorgeous stained-glass window, with flower arrangements on both sides.
They were announced husband and wife and exited the church with beaming smiles.
Their reception venue boasts amazing architecture, perfect for capturing post-ceremony shots. Stephanie and Brian made their way outside under the trellis for some intimate photos before the reception, while guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the venue's lawn.
Everyone was welcomed with an escort card display made from cards, twine, and a vintage window. Darling petite Tiffany blue pins held up the white and gray cards.
The Nocatee Crosswater Hall has a stunning vaulted ceiling with wooden beams, large candelabras, and a beautiful fireplace as its focal point. Round reception tables were placed about the room, drenched in white table linens, and accompanied with white chairs. The space is beautiful on its own and was simply outfitted for the dinner reception.
Centerpieces were assembled with small jars of white hydrangea, rustic framed table numbers, and vases with floating candles. Assorted candlelight graced the tables and room for romantic luminosity.
Stephanie and Brian's cake was sumptuous. Two tiers of casually-frosted buttercream were dressed up with the addition of flowers on each layer. But that wasn't the only sweet treat they had to offer!
They had a plentiful selection of confections from which guests could choose. Elegantly decorated and displayed cake pops and cupcakes graced the beautiful dessert table.
With the lights turned down, the new Mr. and Mrs. enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife. They spent the night celebrating with family and friends in a fun and fabulous reception.
Their night ended with a glowing sparkler exit. Loved ones gathered on both sides as Stephanie and Brian said goodnight, and headed off to enjoy their new life together.
Tradition will never go out of style. This graceful celebration for Stephanie and Brian featured enduring details with a focus on easygoing color and flowers. Their Florida wedding was one that will stand the test of time.
