This luxe Rosemary Beach wedding at The Pearl Hotel on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast was the perfect combination of sleek, chic, and glamorous. The lovebirds, Nikki and Andy, chose to get ready down the road from The Pearl Hotel at a nearby AirBnB. The house was massive and allowed for the couple to celebrate their love over the entire weekend – the house slept 30, meaning that the majority of their guests were able to stay on property! With multiple levels, the bride and bridesmaids were able to get ready on the to floor of the AirBnB while groom and groomsmen relaxed with by the pool with fine whisky. Lucky for me, the couple were close friends of mine, and they completely trusted my every photographic vision, including when I tossed Nikki’s fitted and backless Pronovias wedding gown over the balcony railing for an epic detail shot.
Nikki and Andy’s Rosemary Beach wedding was on a brisk early weekend in January in 2016 and the bride and bridesmaids accessorized their black gowns with elegant fur shawls, adding a touch of elegance while also keeping the ladies warm. The groom also had all of the proper attention put onto himself with a fitted tux with a white jacket from the Black Tux, standing out from his groomsmen, who were in all black.
Nikki and Andy chose to keep their wedding day traditional and not see each other until Nikki was walking down the aisle, but I did manage to get them to share an incredible moment on the balconies together (but separate) before we headed down to the beach for their ceremony. Nikki gazed out into the ocean on the balcony just above Andy, who was taking a moment to prepare for his upcoming vows.
Leave it to Nikki and Andy to make a beach wedding elegant – they managed to have a chandelier hung inside the white flower arch that stood steps away from the stunning golf water. After the Rosemary Beach wedding, we took portraits all throughout the town on the way to their reception at The Pearl Hotel, where guests danced the night away on the rooftop, where bubbles flowed freely and LED balloons created an exit they will always remember!
