A Vibrant Wedding at Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida
Matt and Jackie King, both 27-year-old teachers, headed to the beach for their destination wedding in Florida. After meeting during their freshman year of college, the couple dated for four years before becoming engaged on a family vacation to Disney World. They chose the Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida, as the location for their big day. "We chose a beach theme wedding because Jackie loves being on a beach and the warm weather," they say. Vibrant flowers and cute sea-themed decorations played a big role at their laid-back ceremony and reception. The bride and groom chose guava with hints of orange, yellow and purple as their color palette. Although it might seem like planning a destination wedding would be difficult, Jackie found the opposite to be true. "Planning a destination wedding was the easiest thing I have ever done," she says. "It was so nice to have a couple of lists to choose your vendors from and all I had to do was email or call them. Everyone enjoyed our wedding and they still talk about it after six months."
