A Whimsical Beach Wedding at Palm Beach Shores Community Center in Palm Beach Shores, Florida

From the conch shell aisle decor to the whimsical aquatic accents, Rachel McCullough (33 and an entrepreneur) and Curt McCullough (47 and a medical device distributor) brought the ocean into their wedding with more than a few bright blue and green details. Krystal Zaskey Photography documented the day as it began with a simple beach ceremony and ended with a whimsical reception at Palm Beach Shores Community Center. The Majestic Vision, the couple’s planner, helped fill their intimate wedding with sea-inspired decor. “Once I found Stefany Allongo, she made planning a breeze and fun," Rachel says. "My wedding day was perfect and relaxing because of her.” White folding chairs and the couple’s bamboo wedding arch were met with starfish tied with straw and blue ribbon. The reception, however, was covered in fun details. Lanterns filled with sand and seashells were placed at the center of each round table as starfish-accented burlap runners. Two large seahorses were also placed in front of the couple’s sweetheart table. For an added treat, the kids' table had an edible beach ball and sand bucket centerpiece made of Rice Krispies Treats. Each piece of decor complemented Rachel and Curt’s wedding cake. A local Publix baked its three-tier square and round ivory confection covered with bright blue coral reef detailing. Two white starfish served as the topper. For future couples, Rachel shares a tip: “Never skimp on your photographers or videographers. I am happy that my photographers captured the day so perfectly. I almost didn't need a video.”
