Waterfront, Dunedin Wedding | Beso del Sol Resort Wedding

Jennifer and James’ waterfront Dunedin wedding featured nautical accents, with whimsical touches of light and airy florals to complement the couple’s relaxed reception venue.

“Our wedding was a nautical theme and our colors were mint and navy. I wanted to capture the environment we were in without getting too carried away with a theme,” the bride shared. “We wanted our colors to complement the church as well as the waterfront view at Beso del Sol.”

The Tarpon Springs couple hosted an intimate ceremony at a historic local chapel, followed by a reception at Dunedin venue waterfront wedding Beso del Sol Resort.

“I wanted something classic in a wedding venue, but also something that could be tweaked to reflect our personalities,” Jennifer explained. “The atmosphere made Beso del Sol so great. It was so different from any other venue we had seen, and it almost felt more like a loft space. I loved how different the layout was and that you had a stunning view of the water without being outside!”

To accommodate a specialized menu that would be cautious of dietary restrictions and specific food allergies, the couple hired Tampa Bay wedding caterer Amici’s Catered Cuisine.

“We looked for a company that was affordable, had good food and could cater to certain restrictions. We had vegetarians, gluten allergies, soy allergies and all kinds of other things. We needed someone who could work around those obstacles,” the bride revealed. “The food from Amici’s Catered Cuisine was amazing; everyone was raving about it!”
