Wedding Weekend in Boca Grande

 Amber & Pablo

Why settle for one night of wedding fun, when you can have a full wedding weekend packed with elegant memory-making details? Amber and Pablo did just that for their sun-kissed wedding at the beautiful Gasparilla Inn. The outstanding Cristina Calvert Weddings created a relaxing and memorable wedding weekend that the bride, groom, and their guests soaked in. And since they were doing all that “in the moment” living, Abby Jiu Photography captured the details of the weekend. From the rehearsal dinner to the poolside welcome cocktail hour. And of course, the eagerly anticipated wedding ceremony and tented reception.

The Wedding Weekend Begins

When looking for a “classic Florida” feel, Gasparilla Inn is a diamond in the Sunshine State. The island resort is perfect to escape the everyday. And it made for the perfect backdrop for Amber and Pablo’s wedding weekend.

When guests arrived for the weekend, they were treated like family. Amber and Pablo’s rehearsal dinner was held poolside. While the bride and groom might have had some wedding day jitters, they both looked calm.

On the day of the wedding, the guys enjoyed a round of golf on the championship course. While the ladies celebrated Amber with a Bridal Brunch and then a walk along the white sandy beach. With a five-star vendor team handling the detail of their wedding weekend, the bride and groom were able to relax and enjoy the moments.

Gasparilla Inn Tent Reception

With their family by their side, the bride and groom shared their vows. Amber was stunning in her lace and tulle Ines de Santo gown. Of course, Pablo looked dapper in his classic tuxedo. Married life looks pretty good on them both!

After the wedding ceremony, the wedding guests were invited to join the couple under the ivory tent from Sperry Tents of Naples. With the gorgeous weather, we didn’t want to be anywhere else!

Guests were treated to a cascade of floral as they walked in. Botanica Design & Decor Studio did not disappoint when they created the enchanted garden for Amber and Pablo’s wedding. As the guests picked up their custom-designed sand dollar, they found their seats and awaited the finale of the wedding weekend.

Can we talk about the table details? First, the floral was unbelievable. Down the center of our Folding Tables, a garden grew; with greenery scattered throughout. And yes, it smelled heavenly!

Our Brushed Gold Flatware was paired with scalloped edged chargers. And a delicate floral menu card designed by Ruby the Fox tied in the garden décor,

While the sun began to set, Amber and Pablo dined and danced with their family. We couldn’t imagine a better way to wrap up this memorable wedding weekend.
