A Beachside Fête at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island


Amelia Island, Florida is known for its luxury resorts, golf courses and beautiful sandy beaches. This east coast barrier island provided the perfect backdrop for Karla + Colin’s sophisticated, tropical wedding vibe. The venue was gushing with bold palms and lush greenery and complimented with pops of gold, ivory and blush making it a jaw-dropping tropical oasis.

Karla + Colin said “I do” at an intimate beachside ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends. Following cocktail hour guests were welcomed under a clear top tent that featured dreamy details such as a frozen rosé bar (frosé all day!), a draped beachside cabana lounge and wooden rope swings surrounding the couple’s custom cigar bar. It was an evening full of love, laughs and A LOT of dancing!
