The bride and groom cut their wedding cake — which was a multi-tiered confection that served as both the dessert and the artistic centerpiece for the floating reception onboard the boat.
A wedding is a celebration in and of itself, but this couple took the concept of recognizing their union to a new, experiential level for their guests. Rather than planning a typical ceremony followed by a reception that included dinner, dancing, and dessert, they created an itinerary that involved boat cruises to multiple destinations throughout the day. The sunshine that basked down throughout the day only served to enhance the light, warmth, and color that defined the event.
The bride's eyes are illuminated with joy as her makeup is applied by a professional artist before the ceremony begins.
