Nautical Yacht Club Nuptials
Mark & Mina
The moment the gown graced her figure, gasps flooded the room. Royal perfection. Onlookers whispered similar gasps, the word “princess” circulated. While Mina may not be a princess in title, she certainly appears to jump off the pages of the fairy tale books into Mark’s life. A regular Cinderella in her Amsale gown, complete with a pair of dainty Kate Spade sparkle shoes.
This wedding palette of black, white, and gray, with just a touch of sparkle and the romantic floral bouquets perfectly complement the gown styles. This bride’s style choices embodied casual elegance with the backdrop of sailboats and sunshine.
The Boulevard Club features an outdoor terrace overlooking the marina, perfect for sipping cocktails. The bride’s profession surfaced through elegant chalkboards denoting table assignments. Lettered candies, M&M’s, displayed the couple’s initials in gray and white hues.
The only thing lovelier than the day they crafted is the love Mark and Mina share. It is evident in every secret glance, tender touch and giddy smile.
