Today’s beaut of a wedding has us all swept up like a cool beach breeze. From a proposal at sea to an intimate destination wedding in Florida, Robin & Tristan’s wedding is all about the coastal vibes. With gorgeous design details like criss-cross leis and hanging orchids at the ceremony by Isn’t She Lovely, dusty blue coral centerpieces, and oyster escort cards this elegant Florida wedding has it all. Trust us, you’ll find yourself humming the tune of “Under the Sea” as you scroll through these photos by Heather Wall Photography.
Robin and Tristan took inspiration from the ocean for their destination wedding in coastal Florida, including coral tablescapes and oyster-shell escort cards. “People would ask what the colors for our wedding were, and I always just said organic colors and very soft whites and blues,” Robin says.
The couple loves the ocean, so Tristan proposed on Robin’s family’s boat while they were out on the water near Alabama. “I still can’t believe he pulled it off,” Robin says. “I will never forget him saying, ‘Don’t freak out, and don’t drop the ring!’” Dolphins even made an appearance during the memorable moment, and Robin says their engagement inspired their wedding’s beach focus.
Among the couple’s favorite details were the wooden altar with orchid leis “to die for,” (a nod to Robin’s former home of Hawaii) and personalized cocktail napkins with their initials and a sailfish. On the tables, the florist swapped flower centerpieces for intriguing white and dusty blue coral pieces, as well as an array of candles and blue water glasses to pull all of the elements together.
For other couples, Robin advises, “Don’t stress too much and trust your vendors.” She also encourages others to “take the leap” if they’re considering a destination wedding. Fewer people may be able to attend, Robin says, “but I truly loved how intimate it was.”
