A Nautical Yacht Wedding at Yacht StarShip in Tampa, Florida

Since Becky Arnold and Rob Strawder met on the beach, it only made sense that the pair would plan a nautical wedding filled with navy, white and yello

Since Becky Arnold and Rob Strawder met on the beach, it only made sense that the pair would plan a nautical wedding filled with navy, white and yellow details. To top it off, the couple made their already memorable day even more unforgettable by choosing a yacht from Yacht StarShip as their wedding venue. Becky and Rob were married on the deck by the ship's captain as their guests watched from white folding chairs. After Becky and Rob said "I do," their family and friends waved yellow and blue streamers for a fun and colorful recessional. The celebration then moved to a private room below deck decorated with sea-inspired details, like wooden sailboats and rope-wrapped white lanterns filled with seashells. Becky, Rob and their guests took a lunch cruise, which allowed them to explore the ship for two and a half hours. Before returning to shore, all enjoyed a two-tier blue and white wedding cake with rope accents as well as anchor-detailed cupcakes in the wedding's color palette.

Becky and Rob accented their nautical theme with wooden blue and white sailboats, lanterns filled with seashells and yellow chrysanthemums in netted blue glass bottles.
Each of Becky's bridesmaid wore a playful cap-sleeve navy-and-white-striped dress with matching striped wedges and an updo hairstyle.
As Becky and Rob began their recessional, the couple's friends and family members cheered them on with yellow and navy streamers.
