Sade & Bernard’s outdoor winter wedding was held in Florida, probably one of the only places where it’s safe to have an outdoor wedding in January.

The ceremony was set in the garden area of The Palmetto Club, where the grass was full and green for this outdoor winter wedding. White folding chairs were set up for guests. On each aisle, a small bouquet of pink roses added a pop of color to the ceremony site. Guests moved indoors for the reception into an elegant ballroom, continuing the pops of pink.

From the photographer: Imagine a beautiful bride doing the Gator chop with one of her bridesmaids, the groom hamming it up with his guys. Picture a dear uncle officiating the wedding ceremony with reverence and a hint of mischievous humor. Imagine moments peppered with stolen glances and nervous laughter, sunshine filtering through the clouds and the bride and groom embraced by their parents after saying, “I do.” Little moments unfolded that we hope these two will remember fondly like: Bernard and his mom dancing to Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s sweet rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, the best man’s teasing toast, group photos with loved ones, an epic dance-off between guests and dancing the night away to Calypso classics music with handkerchiefs in hand.
