Amanda and Zach’s destination Sarasota wedding was a bohemian dream, with hanging rattan chandeliers, a neutral color palette, and an immaculate sunset. The beach ceremony was followed by an outdoor garden reception adorned with white florals, romantic candles, and boho details.

“I chose white, green, and dusty rose florals because I wanted dried flowers, plants, and palm fronds to keep on theme,” the bride share. “The theme was boho, but sort of bougie, because that’s my vibe.”

The bride hails from Florida but now lives in Seattle and wanted to include her beach upbringing in her big day. She selected The Resort at Longboat Key Club, a pet-friendly, 410-acre property secluded on a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico with multiple on-site activities, restaurants, pools, and a golf course, providing a getaway for her 100 guests.

“The venue had to be on the beach and dog friendly because I am a veterinarian, and I wasn’t getting married without a dog there,” Amanda revealed. “Our venue met all my requirements and was breathtakingly beautiful. They took care of everything; it was the most bougie boho magical night of my life.”

Amanda and Zach brought magic to the beach, looking stunning every step of the way. The groom wore a dark khaki suit with hints of blue and a dried flower boutonniere. The bride’s long beach hair waves complemented her fitted lace gown with an open back and white bouquet adorned with dried flowers. The bridal party dressed in light khaki suits and dark, dusty rose dresses and walked barefoot down the aisle as the couple vowed their love for one another.

The couple’s guests entered a boho garden paradise with hanging rattan chandeliers, white tablescapes lit by romantic candles, and decorative wicker chargers topped with sage napkins. The sweetheart table was surrounded by white florals and decorated with regal, wicker peacock chairs. Amanda and Zach showcased their personalities with their music choices, bohemian décor, and even their favorite soccer team.

“We had a Seattle Sounders-themed garter toss, and my maid of honor played a special shout-out from our favorite player, Jordan Morris, during the reception,” the bride beamed. “I also walked down the aisle to a slow and absolutely beautiful guitar rendition of the Harry Potter theme song, and we played our favorite 2000s emo band, Taking Back Sunday, while we cut our cake.

One of the biggest perks to hosting a wedding on Florida’s west coast is the beautiful scenery, which made for an unforgettable evening for the bride and groom.

“I thought the beach would make a perfect backdrop. The sunset during cocktail hour was incredible,” Amanda gushed.

Which vendors really exceeded your expectations?
My flowers were to die for. We also really loved our photographer and our videographer because they really hyped us up, had fun with us, and made us feel like Instagram models!  

What advice would you give to other Sarasota couples?
Time flies, especially wedding time, whether you’re having fun or not, so have fun and don’t sweat the small stuff, which is most of it!
