An Upscale Beach Wedding at Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande, Florida

Margot Peroni (33 and a direct saleswoman) and Bastian Schroder (35 and the owner of Horseflight.com) wanted a wedding that would accommodate Bastian's out-of-country guests (the groom hails from Germany) and also be different from the handful of weddings Margot's family had attended that year. "We wanted to do something different from everyone else, but also something that felt like a vacation for our friends and family traveling long distances to be with us," Margot says. Margot's cousin recommended Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande, and the couple immediately fell in love with the island and the inn's old Florida elegance. Inspired by the location, the couple went with an upscale, rustic feel with nautical elements (like the dried starfish attached to the escort cards). A palette of white, navy and green rounded out the look the couple were aiming for. Check out more photos by Jonathan Young Weddings, below.
