A Simple Casual Wedding at the Boca Bay Pass Club in Boca Grande, Florida

Madeline (Maddy) Hornig (28 and an interior designer) and Laurent Frecon (30 and working in Finance) first saw each other when they were assigned to the same table at a wedding. Laurent asked to sit next to Maddy and the two began talking. He proposed six years later while the two watched a sailboat race nearby their childhood homes. Laurent and Maddy’s engagement began with a toy ring. “I It was the same ring he had "jokingly" proposed with years before, that he bought from a vending machine,” says Maddy. Gem stones from Maddy’s family members were incorporated into an engagement ring they custom made. Just under a year later, the couple were wed in front of 115 of their friends and family members in Boca Grande, Florida. Maddy’s family often vacationed at their beach house in Boca Grande, making a personal and special spot for the couple to start their married lives together. “It has always been Maddy's favorite place and it wasn't difficult for Laurent to become attached to it as well,” says Maddy. The two had a casual wedding with whimsical details at the Boca Bay Pass Club. Shades of blue were used in their invitation suite as well as the ceremony and reception decor. Light pink, orange, yellow and white were used in the floral arrangements for added color.
