Beautiful Deerfield Beach Sunset Wedding!
Thank you Kelly & Kourtney!
We are so honored to have been a part of Kelly and Kourtney’s Deerfield Beach Wedding!
On a gorgeous but windy fall evening the lovely couple had their ceremony on the boardwalk across from the Embassy Suites Deerfield Beach. The perfect location for that magical Deerfield Beach Wedding. They choose the Nautical Knot package, which was the perfect decor for their ceremony. With light but vibrant colors, it was truly a perfect style for their Deerfield Beach wedding decor.
The weather tried to dampen the spirits of this vivacious party but to no avail. With the wonderful talents of Mike Rice, www.mikericephotography.com they captured these beautiful moments of this wonderful wedding!

Love Rustic Beach Weddings? Us too!!
In fact, we love them so much we just created a new package dedicated to the rustic look and feel. It is inspired from our love of the beach, love of all things simple and beautiful, and nature. With this understated yet refined look, Rustic Beach Weddings are as beautiful and elaborate as traditional but with an unpretentious feel.
We recently created this new package for our brides or grooms who share this love of nature. We pair a lot of natural elements with more elegant elements to create this look. Burlap and lace. Natural driftwood and beautiful lanterns. Moss and roses. Beautiful natural flowing flowers and strong bamboo. The 2-post bamboo arbor is decorated with burlap fabric, bows, natural floral accents, and lace ties. The natural driftwood aisle is beautifully decorated with flowers, green moss balls, and 6 wooden lanterns (in varying sizes to give dimension) with romantic white candles. The package comes with 20 bamboo chairs and lace chair sashes included for your guests. We also provide recorded music, rustic ceremony table, and a personalized wedding sign to complete the look. For $2,045, we can set up this rustic beach wedding for you at any of our area beaches, gardens, or parks (or at your location).
One of our recent couples chose this package to celebrate their special day. A day they will surely remember forever. To make the day extra special they hired a live guitarist for their ceremony. They also added a Champagne toast to share with their family and friends.

We made a fun video showing the setup. Take a look to see how we do it.

Mara & Adam’s Simple and Elegant Juno Beach Wedding
Mara and Adam have just said I do, in a very special Juno Beach wedding. They celebrated their perfect day with an intimate group of family and friends. This Chicago couple chose Juno beach as the location for their ceremony because they got engaged on the very same beach. How romantic!!
The quaint beach town, Juno Beach, has great local restaurants, hotels near or on the water, and delightfully beautiful beaches. It is famous for it’s Juno Beach Pier, parks, and Loggerhead Marinelife Center- home to Loggerhead, Leatherback, and Green Seat. Juno Beach is a wonderful place to get married or take a vacation to relax and rest from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.
Mara and Adam wanted their wedding to be simple and elegant. Their ceremony was accented with white wedding chairs and a pair of pedestals. Each pedestal was decorated with an elegant arrangement of white flowers that matched the brides wedding dress. They had many charming locations to take romantic and inspiring photos at the ceremony location. Congratulations Mara and Adam!

Jessica and Tony’s Pompano Beach Wedding
Though the clouds tried to interfere with Jessica and Tony’s special Pompano Beach wedding day, they did not succeed. The beautiful couple had their wedding ceremony on Pompano Beach, on September 6th, in front of the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort and Spa. With extra wide sands, the subtle sea grass blowing in the wind, and the crashing of the waves upon the shore, Jessica and Tony had their ceremony with stunning views of Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse peeking through their Arbor.
Jessica chose the Dark Wooden Arbor with Champagne Organza and highlighted with a delicate floral arrangement, centered with a most elegant chandelier. Their style is both beachy and vintage chic and it turned out absolutely stunning. Jessica also chose a beautiful Rose and Lily bouquet, with white lilies and pink roses, that truly accented, in a most elegant fashion, both her dress and the colors of the arbor. She could not have chosen a more perfect color scheme for her wedding day, her colors were so beautiful set against the sky and the ocean, it truly was magical.
It was an honor to be a part of Jessica and Tony’s Pompano Beach wedding, we loved their style, their radiance, and inspiring love for one another. Thank you for choosing Wedding Bells and SeaShells, we truly wish the two of the best, with many, many years of love and laughter.

Jordan and Justin’s Boca Raton Beach Wedding!
Jordan and Justin’s beach wedding was held at Red Reef Park on a lovely spring afternoon in sunny South Florida. The beautiful ceremony was held at the pavilion that sits atop a dune canopied by seagrapes and palm trees. It was an intimate and private setting with stunning views of the beach and the strikingly blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Their Seaside Blooms package was customized with a Sunflower and Wild Flower Aisle, to accent the beautiful purple sashes that decorated the chairs. Jordan decide to include extra flowers to line the boardwalk and ceremony deck to add that extra touch. Adding musicto their package allowed them to have their fist dance as couple in the gazebo. They also choose to customize their Boca Raton beach wedding by adding a Cake Ceremony and Lemonade Table.
We were so honored to be a part of Jordan and Justin’s Boca Raton Beach Wedding, we wish you both all the best!

November 22, 2013 2:58 pmPublished by meganbellsandshellsComments Off on Six Fabulous Reasons to Elope in Florida
Six Fabulous Reasons to Elope in Florida
I love elopements! Don’t get me wrong; a traditional wedding ceremony is beautiful and fun with all the flare and embellishments. Florida elopements are special. Elopements are romantic and deeply intimate. I get all teary-eyed with the love, passion, and devotion shared at an elopement. Here are my top six fabulous reasons to elope in Florida!
1). Save Money!!
Cha-ching! An average wedding in the United States costs $28,000 causing many couples to go into debt before they even begin their life together. There’s got to be another way. Small weddings or elopements offer the ability to splurge a little and celebrate this momentous occasion without breaking the bank. Wedding Bells and Sea Shells most simple and sincere package begins at $699. You can personalize and customize your wedding with our build-your-own-package to build a beautiful and romantic beach wedding!
2). Stress Free
Big weddings can stress people out. Why start your marriage with a stress-out Bride or Groom? Who wants to marry Bridezilla anyway? Keep it simple. Have as much fun as you can! Those are the keys to a successful wedding and life-long marriage. Our motto is “Relax…we’ll take care of everything!” By eloping, you book your flight, pick a hotel, bring the rings, and join us on the beach! It is all taken care of for you.
3). Family Drama
Ain’t nobody got time for that! Have a family member that wants to plan your entire wedding (without you)? Or come from a divorced family and a gathering would just be awkward. Cultural differences, life-style choices, etc. Elope! Take the drama out of the most romantic and special time in your life. Have a fabulous party when you get back home. Can’t leave mom and dad behind? No problem. Have a very small intimate wedding. We can help you plan every last detail so there is no stress and no drama!!
4). Get Married Quickly!
Let’s get on with it! Are you so in love the idea of waiting a whole year to plan a wedding is torturous? Weddings take months to plan. Some venues are booked almost two years in advance. We understand that once you found the love of your life and decided to spend the rest of your lives together the wait is excruciating.
Is your loved one being deployed or moving? With an elopement, you can make one phone call or email to Wedding Bells and Sea Shells and your wedding is planned! It is that simple. For out of state residents, you do need to obtain a marriage license here in Florida. We can tell you how to do that! For in-state residents, we do have a 3-day waiting period, and we can walk you through that as well!
5). Smarter the Second Time Around
Is this your or your partner’s second marriage? An elopement or intimate small wedding is perfect for a second marriage. We often find with our brides and grooms getting married for the second time, that they want the ceremony to reflect their love and respect for each other. It is easy to get distracted with booking a photo booth, picking out linens, and debating seating charts, but with an elopement you are able to focus on your one true love.
6). Intimate & Romantic
Wedding Bells and Sea Shells understands the beauty and specialness of having an intimate wedding between two people. A secret wedding creates a unique and close bond that only those that have experienced it will understand. You may choose to invite your closest and most trusted best friend or parents to expand this bond too. Our professional photographers will capture this special moment in time for your memories and for all those back home. We’ll even include a cute “just eloped” sign to make it official.
It is easy to see why Florida Elopements with Wedding Bells and Sea Shells stand out as more romantic, intimate, and personal than the over the top week long celebrations you see these days!! Eloping is about a love so strong between two people.
August 29, 2013 10:14 pmPublished by meganbellsandshellsComments Off on Fort Lauderdale Pre-Cruise Beach Wedding Is The Better Choice
Looking to sail away for your I Do’s and get a jumpstart on your honeymoon?
Before you book your on board cruise ship wedding, take a moment to evaluate your options. We believe having a Fort Lauderdale pre-cruise beach wedding is the better choice.
Every couple wants their wedding day to be perfect, hassle, worry free, and simply amazing. Which is why we wanted to compare our elegantly simple beach wedding packages to to those that the cruise lines offer. We’ve heard so many times that brides wish they would have known what the cruise ship wedding really entailed.
Although there are some advantages to getting married on the ship, the obvious being the convenience of being aboard the ship for both your ceremony and your honeymoon; there are many more advantages to planning your wedding with us, in a romantic and picturesque wedding on the sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale.
The greatest advantage that we can offer is simply the location. Choose from any one of our packages and or even create your own ceremony, and have your wedding on the soft sands of Fort Lauderdale or Miami Beach, not in a stuffy room on the boat.
Most cruise ships do not have chapels on board, so the cruise wedding is conducted inside a dark lounge or theater on board the ship. Not what most people would consider a romantic setting for your destination beach wedding (Spoiler Alert: when they show you the picture of the bride and groom on the bow of the boat, be sure to ask where the ceremony took place).
Wedding Bells and SeaShells will create a beautiful and personalized ceremony for you on the beach, steps away from the beautiful ocean. Included in our packages are the officiant, bouquets, decor of your choosing, and we provide you with all of breathtaking photographs for you to keep. Cruise ships cannot offer you the same beautiful environment, at a reasonable price for what Wedding Bells and SeaShells can do for you. We encourage you to ask the cruise lines how much they charge for a photographer, to see the quality of their work, and ask how many images will be included in the cost of the wedding package.
Having been on several cruises, one thing we can guarantee is that along with the base price for the cruise line wedding package, there will be additional charges for every little request. The best way to know for sure is to call and compare for yourself. Compare what cruise ships offer to the personal attention and flexibility that comes with our pre-cruise weddings.
It really is simple. If you compare the cost difference between what the cruise lines offer in their wedding packages as to what we can offer you. Your pre-cruise beach wedding with Wedding Bells and SeaShells would be the more economical choice and receive the most bang for your buck. For the price of their packages, our pre cruise wedding packages would likely cover an extra hotel room, a romantic dinner, a night on the town, or even a intracoastal cruise. Along with helping you plan your destination pre-cruise beach wedding, we can also assist with everything else there is to offer throughout South Florida.
We strive to make the wedding planning process simple and enjoyable even from afar, so you are able to enjoy the moment and this engagement time. Before you book your wedding on a cruise ship, consider Wedding Bells and SeaShells for your romantic pre-cruise beach wedding. We would love to be a part of your special day. Take a moment to visit our website or give us a call. Let us create a simple and elegant pre-cruise beach wedding for you today.
