All of you beach-lovers out there are sure to be awestruck by this tropical love-fest on the sugary sands of San Pedro, Belize. Lexi and Steve’s flirty, creative and luxurious wedding day had us all delightfully adrift. The playful yet elegant set-up perfectly matched Lexi and Steve’s radiance and beauty, equipped with whimsical signs, exquisite details, and an epic party.
Our unique wedding venues are sure to transport you to paradise, and “La Perla” is a prime example. With huge french doors opening out to the sunrise over the water, local artwork brightening up the rooms, and mornings that start with fresh coffee and the sound of ocean waves, La Perla provides a perfect foundation to fulfil all of your bridal fantasies. Lexi and Steve started their big day with a bold glass of aged scotch, paired with friends, laughter and last-minute beauty prep. Lexi was simply glowing in her fitted lace dress with a deep back and classic diamond necklace. Her bouquet of tropical flowers and rouge lips looked striking against her timeless white dress. Steve looked exceptionally handsome in his sky-blue tux and breezy white button up shirt. The gorgeous couple’s beach-inspired colour scheme gracefully enhanced the oceanic backdrop and had us swimming in a tropical oasis.
Lexi surprised Steve in her bridal ensemble at the end of a wooden pier stretching out over the ocean. There is nothing more magical than that first look of sheer joy on a groom’s face after watching his bride step out in her dress. Guests gathered on the beach for the ceremony, sauntering past darling love notes written on aloe vera leaves, miniature chalk boards, and glossy wooden signs that really made this day unique. We created the perfect alter to exchange vows, with its sheer drapes that wrapped around the sides and hung loosely from the middle of the arch, wildly blooming with white and yellow daisies, and an isle lined with sandy lanterns filled with a mixture of seashells. From the first kiss, to the blissful exit: “with sandy toes and salty kisses, we became mr. and mrs.”
The day continued with more laughter, cocktails, and an endless amount of love. True love is where you are free to be your best self, and you can really see that with Lexi and Steve and the people they surround themselves with. The reception had everyone dancing beneath outdoor palapas and a network of fairy lights and stars shimmering overhead. Nothing beats the sweet, warm ocean breeze drifting through the dance floor with the silhouettes of palm trees surrounding. Dinner consisted of a delicious local buffet, topped with a sea-blue and white frosted cake. Our table decor was elegantly decorated with an organic touch, with bright green vines twisting through a collection of candles, seashells and daisies at the centre of the table. The night ended with an impromptu pool party, and, of course, more dancing in between! Cheers to the gorgeous newlyweds.
