A Classic Country Club Wedding at the Jupiter Island Club in Hobe Sound, Florida

When choosing wedding colors, Abigail Conrad (27 and an esthetician) and Alden Carrere (28 and an investment banker) found themselves moved by the colors of the sun setting over the ocean. The couple incorporated those romantic blush pinks and deep blues into their decor, but also made sure the color palette and the decor transitioned easily from ceremony to reception. “For our Catholic wedding ceremony, we decided to keep the decor simple,” Abigail says. “We wanted the vows and our chosen readings to be the focus and not to take away from the thing that joined us together, which was God.” At the luxurious Jupiter Island Club reception afterward, lustrous blue linens, tall centerpieces and gold metallic flowers dressed dinner tables. Abigail and Alden also hosted cocktail hour outside the luxurious country club, so guests were able to look out at the ocean while swaying to a jazz band and sipping signature drinks. Their cocktail of choice was the famous purple drink from New Orleans’ own Lafitte’s, which is where the couple met. To pay homage to that same city, they made their exit with the help of traditional Big Easy-inspired umbrellas.
