Keep On Shufflin' At Krystal & Beau's Wedding

The Shuffle Board Club of St. Pete could not have been a more perfect fit for Krystal and Beau’s unique, ‘50’s vibe wedding vision!  If you thought their engagement session was epically timeless (step back in time here), then prepare to be extra floored by every little detail of their wedding day!

The ladies began their day inside the fittingly retro rooms of the Avalon hotel, which was conveniently located within walking distance of the wedding venue.  Wedding prep for these ladies was like stepping backstage of a movie set as artist Bella Michelle brought some dreamy pin-up inspired hair and makeup to life for the entire bridal party.  But our bride Krystal shone like a true leading lady by the time the finishing touch of red splashed across her lips!  This bride left no detail unplanned, such as her handmade brooch bouquet which was jam-packed with adorably flashy vintage pins and brooches.  

When the last bits of tulle had been fluffed and delicate netting had been draped, the bridal party was ready for their grand debut in the Avalon’s picture perfect lobby.  We then took advantage of our small stroll to the wedding venue by snapping some “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” shots along the way, including one iconic crosswalk moment!

Meanwhile, the guys had fun dressing and downing a couple of celebratory shots on-location as they awaited the bridal party’s arrival.  

The ceremony took place directly on the shuffle board courts in front of bleachers packed with impeccably dressed guests who all got the “style throwback” memo and rocked their best ‘50’s attire.  Emotional vows were exchanged, followed by a modern twist on the sand ceremony: Our couple opted for a Beer Ceremony instead where they merged a delicious combination of two hand-selected craft beers!

After family formals we whisked our starlet newlyweds away for their Just Married Portraits beneath the Banyan trees and lakeside.

Their reception had all of the markings of a good ol’ fashioned night on the town, complete with a food truck, vintage (and we mean VINTAGE) ice cream truck, signature crafted beers, and access to the shuffle boards as a way to burn off some of the fuel from all of the delicious treats of the night!

Krystal and Beau’s wedding day vision was as timeless as the passion they share for one another.  Neither of them smiled more or laughed harder than when they were by each other’s side, and the night was full of so much love and support for their union.  We are so happy for this classically cool couple, and we wish them many more years of epic times together!
