Dana and Tyler’s Destination Wedding – Vero Beach Hotel and Spa
Pink Pelican Florist is thrilled to have been a part of this beautiful Wedding Day Event!
As the day began, Dana and Tyler were blessed with a glorious morning for their wedding. The sun was shinning, and the ocean was shimmering, with soft sounds of the waves rolling ashore, making this a perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony.
Working together with Dana, we began her amazing color palette with one of our turquoise custom fabric aisle runners, which contrasted beautifully against the white coral stone. We then lined the aisle with white slated boxes filled with vibrant blooming plants, fresh flowers, and cascading green ivy; each container an expression of glorious pinks, yellows, greens, oranges, whites, and touches of fuchsia. In addition, every other chair held a clear glass vase that was filled with the same flower combination; tied with turquoise ribbon.
The wooden pergola structure was decorated with a large floral section on the top-center as a gorgeous backdrop to the ceremony. The fountain had small floral arrangements matching the flowers down the aisle that were then used for cocktail hour afterwards, and large green ferns filled the tall concrete urns. It was the perfect setting for Dana and Tyler to start their ceremony.
As the bridal party came down the aisle, the girls were in navy blue dresses, and carrying bouquets made with love in the same flower selection used throughout. The guys were in white oxford shirts and grey trousers; their boutonnieres in shades of the bridal flowers. Once Tyler, the guys, and the girls were in place, it was Dana’s turn to walk down the aisle. As the bride made her entrance, her smile was as the bright as the colors in her bouquet, and her eyes sparkled like her dress. She was simply exquisite in every detail, completing the perfection of the ceremony.
For cocktail hour, Dana carried the theme from outside throughout the reception. The large floral piece from the wood trellis was brought inside to the sweetheart table. The guest toasted the new couple at round tables with white wooden-box floral arrangements filled with roses, lilies, ivy, stock, snapdragons, and spray roses, topped off in the center with curly willow and Mendocino branches to add altitude and drama to the designs. The wedding cake was covered in fresh flowers as well to carry the theme and feel throughout the room.
This wedding could be easily described as beautiful, yet whimsical garden theme, and was such a great way to start their new lives together.
Congratulations to Dana & Tyler! We were blessed to have been a part of your big day.
We love making wedding dreams come true; one bride and groom at a time!
The perfect place to say I do…Haley and Jimmy’s breathtaking Vero Beach Hotel & Spa outdoor wedding with the glistening ocean as their backdrop. Together, they choose to bring an English garden feel to their ceremony. They selected natural grapevine, curly willow, succulents, cascading orchids, snap dragons, and much more, to soften the massive wooden pergola.

Haley looked beautiful in her champagne lace dress, carrying her bouquet trimmed in matching lace from her wedding dress. The girls wore light blush pink dresses, while the guys were in charcoal gray suits, making this a perfect color palette. The bride and her attendants carried bouquets in shades of pink, using roses, peonies, cymbidium and phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies, and succulents, accented by delicate air plants.
Jimmy and the groomsmen wore a variety of succulents for their boutonnieres, matching the girls. This was truly a stunning setting to reflect what makes their love so special. After saying “I do”, the guests showered the newly married couple as they walked down the aisle, having been given moss covered cones filled with rose petals.
The reception space glowed as you entered the room; the sweet fragrance of garden roses filling the air. Pink and gold mercury glass votives flickered on each table, while tall Monet vases with floating candles and pink crystals surrounded the stunning floral arrangements, carrying the theme of the ceremony into the reception. The couple chose to accent the place settings, as each guests wine glasses were adorned with etched hearts that included the guest’s names.
Haley and Jimmy’s wedding day was an absolute reflection of their personality and love for one another; their vision revealing an unforgettable bridal event, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Monica and Cal’s Windsor Country Club wedding was everything one could dream of and more. Monica is a flawlessly beautiful, petite blond, while Cal looks like he just stepped out of GQ magazine. The two of them together made the perfect couple. The respect and love they have for each other is amazing in how it pours from them both. We felt blessed to have been a part of this magical day, feeling as though it came straight out a fairy tale.
The weather on the day of their wedding was a glorious fall day, as our work began, with the Pink Pelican team dropping off the bridal flowers to Monica and all the girls, as they were in the Windsor Club suites getting ready. Cindy Goetz and Lindsey Naffziger were on hand doing a fabulous job with hair and make up, and Jessi Caparella Photography shooting images of the preparation activities. With the girls dresses hanging in the closest and gift bags for the bridesmaids on the bed, they had prepared a spread of food and snacks for everyone to share.
Monica was in the make up chair as we delivered her bridal bouquet and girl’s flowers. As soon as she saw them, tears of joy filled her eyes. This is the priceless moment that we live for; when we see the bride holding the flowers and we know that we are truly bringing a young lady’s wedding dreams to life.Next stop was to find Cal and the guys to drop off the boutonnieres. There is just something about a guy being with his long-time friends, and the bond they share. Cal was having a great time with all the guys, so we dropped off the flowers and wished him the best.

For the stately Windsor Chapel, Monica and Cal chose to decorate in classic white; with flowers and green ivy on the pews, and white hydrangeas and roses for the alter pieces. The stage was set for their vows, with family, friends, and loved ones by their side. While enjoying these photos, be sure not to miss one special little guest; their precious little French bulldog, outfitted with a coordinating bow tie and serving as one of the ring bearers.
Once the wedding was complete, the guest moved to the lovely Windsor Beach Club for the reception. They were met with a round escort table featuring a beautiful large floral and glass centerpiece. Passing through the lobby of the Beach Club, guests were able to view many old and new photos of Cal and Monica and their family members. The resemblance between Monica and what we guessed was an older relative in an old black and white image (Grandmother maybe) was amazing!!

The reception tent was absolutely breathtaking! The stars glistened through the clear roof, adding to the glow and sparkle from the countless candles. The tables were decorated with gold pedestal floral arrangements in shades of blush, soft, and bright pinks, and accented with silver dusty miller greens to highlight the colors; the spray and garden roses adding an elegant fragrance to the entire space.
The sweetheart table was laid out with a blush sequined table cloth adorned with several small floral arrangements that sparkled nearly as much as the bride and groom! Later in the evening, the escort table was removed and the guest cards were replaced with a simple yet ever-so-elegant white/cream four tier cake from Frostings Cupcakes, as well as a grooms cake decorated in a Dallas Cowboys football motif that a group of childhood friends had made. The bridal cake was decorated with small pink flower accents for a classic splash of color.
As the festivities continued, the evening could not have been any more perfect if it had been ripped from a book of fairy tales; created just for Monica and Cal.
We wish this beautiful couple that touched our hearts a long life together of love and happiness.
