Dreamy Destination Beach Wedding On The Florida Gulf Coast

We *heart* when MagnetStreet couples share their wedding days with us! Riley and Jimi’s luxe destination beach wedding in Florida certainly doesn’t disappoint. From toes in the sand, bright tropical flowers, sand dollars, sea stars, and beach wedding stationery that perfectly suited their day … we’ll let the photos from their dreamy destination beach wedding tell the story.

Plus we’re mixing it up a bit this time around, and letting you hear their story from the beautiful bride, herself. Their fabulously-talented photographers from Limelight Photography did an ahh-mazing job!

Dreamy Destination Beach Wedding On The Florida Gulf Coast

The couple: Riley & Jimi
How they met: Worked together at Apple Store in Michigan
Wedding style:“Our wedding theme was all about the beach. I wanted bright bold tropical colors that would really pop out against the sand. Tropical flowers, sand dollars, sea stars and love!”
Location: Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida

“I knew I always wanted to get married on the beach at sunset. We were living in California when we got engaged but knew that it was going to be really far for everyone to travel there. So we decided that the Florida west coast was going to be the perfect place for us. Beautiful sandy beaches, picture-perfect sunsets, and it was centrally located for all our friends and family to get to. I started looking at places on The Knot and fell in love with the Sirata. They were very much a one-stop shop and I couldn’t find a better private beach. So we booked with them right away and it was the best choice I could have made!”

Their love story
When Riley sets her mind to something, there is nothing that will stop her. Little did Jimi know, Riley had her sights firmly set on him.

Shortly after the new year began in 2012, Riley and Jimi bonded over playing Words with Friends and other board games. Playing games led to seeing movies together, and that led to more dates together … and before they knew it, they were an item.

Traveling has been a big theme for these two. They have seen the splendor of Niagara Falls, wandered around the Badlands, saluted our Presidents at Mount Rushmore, and driven across the country… twice! The first stop on their adventures across the country was in San Francisco. They lived in the Bay Area for 3 years, working at various companies, drinking wine in Napa, and making frequent trips to Disneyland.

Circumstances outside of their control forced them to move away from the Golden State, but they traded in the West Coast for the Gulf Coast, and upgraded from Disneyland to Disney World. Contrary to popular belief, they aren’t at Disney World everyday, but it is difficult to stay away from the Magic Kingdom when they live in its backyard.

In fact, it was at the Magic Kingdom where Jimi proposed to Riley on October 3rd, 2014. They were there on a vacation with Riley’s grandma and grandpa. After a very hot day at the park, Jimi got down on one knee in front of the castle, where a stunned Riley said yes.

Magnificent Seaside Engagement Shoot on Jetty Island

Apr 17 2017

You can almost feel the salty, warm sea breeze on your face as you swoon over this gorgeous couple’s seaside engagement session! Jennifer and Nick held their seaside sesh at super-scenic Jetty Island in Everett, Washington. Jetty Island, near the Puget Sound, is a rustic locale full of miles of sand, tidal pools to explore … and beautiful breezy backdrops.

Magnificent Seaside Engagement Shoot on Jetty Island

With the ocean lapping up onto the beach, a super neat driftwood hut,  and a dreamy sunset—this little island oasis provides the most dazzling setting. Their photographer perfectly captured the sunset, sand, and sweet moments between Jennifer and Nick.

Let’s be honest, their seaside engagement shoot is making us want to go and find a secluded beach, stat! But that’s not possible at the moment, so instead we crafted up a breezy color palette inspired by the sea—check it out below. We’re definitely smitten by this great couple’s magnificent session {and know you will be, too}.

Romantic and Whimsical Outdoor Summer Engagement Session

Apr 10 2017

Happy Monday … we have a super pretty outdoor summer engagement shoot {and inspired cheery color palette} to treat you to today! Gorgeous couple, Michele and Yash, are looking forward to their August 2017 wedding at The Manor in West Orange, New Jersey. The Manor is an extraordinary property with tons of great photo opps, as you can see in Michele and Yash’s e-session.

Romantic and Whimsical Outdoor Summer Engagement Session

With 20 acres of landscaped grounds and an expansive English-manor-inspired waterfall by the patio, The Manor is lavish! Brick walkways, gazebos, sweeping grassy grounds, and dreamy floral archways abound. Michele and Yash walked along a little bridge, posed by a fountain, laughed in front of a cottage, and kissed beneath an altar. There’s no doubt their wedding will be even more stunning {if that’s possible?}

The weather looks perfect, and the natural settings are spectacular throughout their dreamy summer engagement session. And we love the intimate stolen moments their photographer captured! It’s a whimsical, free spirited, and enchanting photo shoot … what more is there to say? <3
