If there’s one thing I’ll never tire of as a Florida wedding photographer, it’s waterfront wedding days. Valerie and Ryan’s gorgeous waterfront Paradise Cove wedding was elegant and filled with the most gorgeous dusty blue and ivory color palette. Set against the lush, Floridian landscape, their intimate beach wedding day was a perfect Orlando affair. I’m so happy for Valerie and Ryan and I can’t wait for you to see their waterfront wedding day!

Florida Beach Wedding Color Palette

Valerie and Ryan chose a beautiful palette with dusty blue, ivory, and pastel pinks for their beach wedding. The bridesmaids wore long gowns in dusty blue and Valerie’s bouquet was filled with light colors to compliment the dresses. Ryan’s tan suit was perfect for a beach wedding, too. This lighter color palette worked well with the landscape of Paradise Cove, making it a natural choice.

Waterfront Wedding Ceremony

Ryan had the coolest entrance to their wedding ceremony – he arrived by boat! Everyone loved it and he was ready to meet his bride for their ceremony. Although they’d had a first look (which resulted in some beautiful portraits on the beach!), they both couldn’t wait to actually tie the knot. They were wed in a beautiful ceremony along the waterfront, under a wooden arbor. Everything was sweet and simple, which I think is really what beach weddings should be about.

Valerie and Ryan 

I loved photographing Valerie and Ryan because you can just feel the love between them. Valerie and Ryan met during another friend’s wedding and stayed as friends for a bit, until Valerie realized Ryan was a pretty amazing guy. During a Christmas celebration with families, Ryan proposed and it was a total surprise for everyone! They had all finished gifts when Ryan said he had one more and pulled the ring out of his pocket. What a sweet proposal story!! Now, they’re husband and wife – and I couldn’t be happier for them. 

Congratulations, Valerie and Ryan! You two are the sweetest and I’m so honored I could be with you to capture your beautiful wedding day. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!
