With a major hurricane scheduled to roll in on Rebecca and Joe’s wedding day, the team at Marina Shores scrambled to move the entire wedding back a day. Although this meant some of their guests wouldn’t be able to attend, they had a really strong turn out, and all the vendors put out a stellar effort despite the adversity that Mother Nature dropped on everyone. The day started off by capturing Rebecca and the ladies getting their ‘final touches’ applied in the bridal changing room at Marina Shores, followed by a beautiful ceremony upstairs overlooking the marina.
Moving the wedding back a day gave us some really amazing weather, and I was able to take the couple to a nearby beach for some portraits after the ceremony, while the guests enjoyed happy hour on the new deck behind the Shoreline Room. Ivan from Arch entertainment handled the introductions and music, and had everyone quickly forgetting about the impending weather, and dancing the entire evening. Cuisine & Co. produced a fantastic meal that the wedding guests will be raving about for quite some time; and to think they had to move their entire food production schedule back a day. For a catering company, that’s a logistical nightmare, but they pulled it off with ease!
