It’s Stephanie and Kevin’s first anniversary this week, so we’re sharing our favorite photos from their Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach wedding!
Every single part of this day was so well-planned, from the intricate bridal details to the fun party at the end of the night! Stephanie and Kevin, you really know how to throw a party!! We had so much fun celebrating with you! We hope you enjoy reliving it with us through these photos 🤗❤️
Pre-ceremony at the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach
Stephanie and Kevin hired our favorite wedding planner, Amber from Oh My! Occasions! As soon as we arrived at the Conrad hotel, Amber helped us get settled in – she had already prepped all of the wedding details in the bridal suite so we could photograph them!
If you need a wedding planner in Florida, especially in Fort Lauderdale, you NEED to hire Oh My! Occasions! Amber is the best, most organized planner we have ever worked with, and her team is a well-oiled machine. But more importantly, we can tell they truly care about the couples they serve, which is key on a wedding day!
This bridal suite was everything we look for in a getting ready room! If you’re having a Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach wedding, be sure to book a corner suite, because they have giant windows on two sides of the room!
These are some of our favorite bridal portraits ever, and it’s all because of the simple, neutral color scheme and the amount of light in the room!
Can we just appreciate Kevin’s wedding ring for a second? The gold leaf detail is so unique! It’s definitely the coolest groom’s ring we’ve ever seen.
Ceremony at St. Maurice at Resurrection Catholic Church
The way Kevin looked at Stephanie as she walked down the aisle got everyone a little choked up :’)
And her face LIT UP as she walked towards him! 🥰
We love that they commemorated Stephanie’s grandma and Kevin’s dad with charms attached to the bouquet ❤️
They even left a seat open at the ceremony for Kevin’s dad, with a flower and a picture of him. What a touching way to make sure he was a part of the day 💕
Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach wedding portraits
We went to the penthouse balcony for some of the portraits. It was a beautiful day, but it was very, very windy, so we moved to the Conrad’s ballroom to take a few more!
The balcony next to the ballroom was less windy, and in the end we were SO glad we went there, because isn’t that reflection just epic??
The wedding day was actually May the Fourth (Star Wars day!!), so Stephanie and Kevin brought some toy lightsabers to celebrate the occasion! Chris may have had a little too much fun adding some photoshop effects to make them look more like real lightsabers, haha 😂
Stephanie told us about this adorable little nook with a library that the Conrad has on the ground floor, and it was the perfect spot to take a few last portraits before heading upstairs for cocktail hour!
Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach Wedding Reception
The talented Will Corujo played music to entertain the guests at the cocktail hour and reception!
Stephanie is a super talented cake artist, so we knew whoever she hired to make her cake was gonna be amazing… But Earth and Sugar blew us away! Together with florals from Ever After Floral Design and rentals from Unearthed Rentals, they created this beautiful dessert cart display!
We got to sample a dessert or two at the end of the night, and they were sooooo good!
The Prism Artistry team took care of the entertainment for the night, beginning with table “dresses” where guests could pick up shots as well as the “key” to their table!
And finally, Prism Artistry helped to end the night with a fantastic hora loca before these two headed off to their European cruise honeymoon!
Happy anniversary, Stephanie and Kevin! We love you guys and are super excited to see you again once all this COVID stuff is over (we have plans, and y’all are gonna LOVE them!)!
