Lindsay & Casey | Ft Lauderdale Wedding Photographer, Lauderdale Yacht Club Wedding

May 6, 2019

Since Cinco de Mayo was yesterday, we thought it was the perfect timing to share this fun and festive Lauderdale Yacht Club wedding day from last year! Lindsay and Casey got married exactly one year after their engagement, on Cinco de Mayo! Lindsay wanted a simple and fun, yet elegant, wedding design. Being that she was getting married on Cinco de Mayo, she wanted to play a little on the holiday without it being a full-on fiesta. She went back and forth with her planner on whether to keep the design in mostly neutrals (whites, beige, greens) or to add a pop of color. The exterior of the Lauderdale Yacht Club (her venue) was a blank canvas, so ultimately they decided that was just the pop of color her wedding design needed.

Of course, they couldn’t have a Cinco de Mayo wedding without playing to the theme just a little. The cocktail hour space was where they decided to have a little more fun. Lindsay purchased Mexican blanket serapes to taper the highboy linens and white Mexican wedding “Papel Picado flags” that were hung from the string lights over the dance floor. They traded the traditional wedding cake in for choco ice cream tacos. The florals were tropical and with brightly colored blooms and large pieces of greenery. They even hired a mariachi band to play during their cocktail hour! Every detail of this wedding had the perfect fiesta flair. 

My favorite detail, outside of the bouquets, were the patterned bridesmaid dresses. They paired so well with Lindsay’s classic Amsale Nouvelle wedding gown. Fun fact, Lindsay had originally purchased a different wedding dress when she went shopping with her bridesmaids. She decided last minute to purchase the first dress she had tried on. (however, she didn’t tell anyone) What a sweet moment it was when she SURPRISED her beloved bridesmaids by coming out in her wedding dress. Their reactions were priceless!

Lindsay and Casey’s wedding perfectly highlighted their personalities. Casey is more reserved, allowing his bride Lindsay to be light of the room, bubbly and energetic, a pop of color wherever she goes. I think the juxtaposition of the neutral linens, lush greens and simplistic centerpieces paired well with the pops of tropical floral and fun fiesta-themed décor. It perfectly captured what it is that makes Lindsay and Casey work as a couple. It was a bright and fun-filled day, for arguably, Fort Lauderdale’s most fun couple.
