The Hammock Beach Resort, Palm Coast, Florida
When Amanda first started discussing the overall design of her wedding with our Lisa Stoner Event Planning team, she conveyed that she wanted a wedding that was elegant but still approachable, stylish and fresh.
Amanda and Pete share a love for the beach, so The Hammock Beach Resort was the perfect location for a luxurious Palm Coast wedding weekend; with the vastness of the Atlantic ocean as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony, and ocean breezes and a breathtaking view for their wedding reception.
They both quickly embraced the idea of dark green, leathery tropical monstera leaves as a design thread that carried throughout the wedding with shades of white and gold as accent colors.
In keeping with the elegant, stylish and approachable feel, Amanda selected her wedding gown from Hayley Paige’s Blush collection. Her ivory beaded ball gown had a scalloped sweetheart neckline and spaghetti strap detail with a full, cascading tulle skirt. Beautiful drop earrings, matching bracelet, hair comb and stunning Badgley Mischka satin heel evening shoes with hand designed crystal embellishments were the perfect accents to this amazing gown.
Amanda carried a cascading white bouquet of lush white phalaenopsis, full round white ranunculus and fragrant white freesia against the backdrop of monstera leaves; personalized with five lockets of family photos. Her bridal party carried similarly styled bouquets with white dendrobium orchids and monstera leaves.
Not to be left out, Pete and his groomsmen looked sharp in their classic black tuxedos accented with phalaenopsis boutonnieres and monogramed cuff links.
After a First Look and spending some time for private portraits, the couple hosted their ocean side wedding ceremony on Hammock Beach’s Lodge Lawn. Classic white garden chairs, two simple white columns with cylinder vases of monstera leaves and white orchids, the Atlantic Ocean and hedge of palm trees provided the perfect backdrop.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception by the pool while Amanda, Pete and the wedding party took some time together for photos.
Lush white floor length linen set a blank canvass to add bold accents: gold chiavari chairs, clear glass charger plates with gold rims and gold flatware.
Monstera leaves were used as an accent under the table settings in addition to the tall vases that drew your eye up to the billowing white ceiling draping.
A gold cake stand held a smooth white buttercream wedding cake with ruscus leaves as a simple accent and a gold custom cake topper.
Amanda and Pete closed out their amazing night with a kiss and a shower of sparklers.
