A Beachfront Garden Wedding at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, Florida

When Katherine Fox (27 and works in property management) dreamt of her wedding to Marc-Andre Lavoie (28 and a sales consultant), she pictured “a moody, magical fairy tale with raw outdoor elements.” “I loved the idea of combining glamorous details with an organic backdrop,” she says. Incorporating black and white provided a timeless backdrop for the couple’s nuptials, while bold blooms in shades of raspberry, plum and fuchsia gave a burst of color to the day. “We basically sprinkled everything with a touch of gold, and it completed our glam look,” Katherine says. For the reception, the newlyweds topped tables with low arrangements and served guests seafood like push-pop crab cakes, lobster bisque and sea bass. A personalized globe guest book showed off the couple's custom monogram, and the newlyweds celebrated with not just a first dance, but a last dance of the night too. “Our getaway car was the best,” Katherine says of the white Rolls-Royce waiting for them post-dancing. “It was the perfect ending.”
