After 7 years together, Mele and Paul had always wanted to get married on the beach and they just loved the overall vibe of the Postcard Inn hotel on St. Pete Beach. They had their reception in one of my favorite areas of the hotel, the romantic garden with strung lights. Mele looked stunning in her Hayley Paige lace dress, it was the perfect chic dress for the beach! When Paul saw her for the first look, tears welled in his eyes and they shared the sweetest embrace.
Both Mele and Paul were absolutely surprised when their Maid of Honor and Best Man gifted them a "Shotski" during toasts. For those fans of Andy Cohen on Bravo's tv show Watch What Happens Live, you all know what this is! For those who have no idea, it's a ski with holes for shot glasses. You line up and drink all at the same time. The one they were gifted had shot glasses from Orlando where they lived and "till death do us part" saying on the underside of the ski. It was a fun moment and got the party started. The dance floor was full under the trees with hanging lanterns. Dancing under the stars with with everyone who's closest to you must be an amazing feeling!
