Monica and Myles said “I do” to a seaside destination wedding at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort just off the Northeast coast of Florida. This beautiful beachside deck ceremony took place on the Oceanview Terrace, where friends and family gathered for a “classy and fun” evening – which was exactly what the couple wanted.
With classy and fun in mind during their wedding planning process, the venue search was on. We asked this darling duo how they selected the location as their destination wedding venue. “We loved the beautiful resort, location, and FOOD!” And the food at this reception was nothing short of spectacular. The couple opted for a “steakhouse buffet – we had steak, lamb, shrimp, crab cakes, a cutting station…”.
For colors, the bride selected a pretty pale blue for her bridesmaids to wear, while a mint and gold wedding cake really made the reception décor pop! With pretty pastels all around, gold chargers and details, and dramatic, tall white centerpieces flanking the long tables, the classy and fun look was certainly achieved.
“We had a wonderful experience working with Carol Burns at Omni to make our dream wedding come true, everyone LOVED the food, and they are still talking about it today.”
At the end of the evening, Monica and Myles gave their guests wedding favors of mini bottles of Korbel champagne and matching koozies to take home.
“The venues were perfect and accommodated our wants and needs. We are so happy that our destination wedding turned out perfect!”
And those “perfect venues” even included a swanky wedding rehearsal dinner on property, where guests celebrated further at this weekend long destination wedding event at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.
Congratulations to Monica and Myles!
