A Simple Beach Wedding at Loews Don CeSar Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida

Jennifer Fillion and Michael Jenquin, who met while playing softball, worked together to plan a bright spring wedding accented in blue, cream and neutral hues. With the notably pink Loews Don CeSar Hotel as their venue, the couple had a beach ceremony accented with simple white decor. A black and white floral wooden sign was placed at the head of the ceremony aisle as rows of white folding chairs faced the Gulf. One of Mike’s groomsmen presided over the ceremony, where Jen and Mike shared personalized vows. After they said “I do,” their guests walked back up the beach to the hotel for a tented reception and cocktail hour. Each friend and family member found his or her blue and white escort card attached to a festive white starfish as they entered the palm-tree-lined space. Inside, white folding chairs surrounded white- and cream-linen-covered round tables, and low blue hydrangea centerpieces in cylinder vases provided a pop of color. All snacked on passed hors d’oeuvres and enjoyed a buffet dinner before Jen and Mike treated their guests to a table filled with confections. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the pair served cupcakes with white icing and bright purple orchid accents. The couple and their guests spent the night dancing to live band Save the Radio before leaving with personalized kettle corn wedding favors.
