This stylish destination wedding in Alys Beach, Florida was a dream to capture. Zuzanna and Cole radiate pure joy and blissful love for each other, and not once did they ever stop smiling throughout their day. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to celebrate as the beautiful couple became husband and wife. The most incredible rainbow appeared during their stroll along the beach just after they said “I do!”, making this one of my favorite moments from their day. {I may or may not have cried happy tears when I got their film scans!}

This stunning couple could have walked straight out of a fashion magazine. The gorgeous bride turned heads as she wore a jaw-dropping Berta gown from Carine’s Bridal, and the groom looked dapper in Bonobos. Zuzanna’s uniquely gorgeous florals were designed by Bella Flora 30A, and included succulents, white roses, and seeded eucalyptus. Morgan King Makeup and Hair Design by Jessica completed her flawless bridal look. Her bridesmaids wore assorted mix and match sequined and beaded gowns in soft muted shades of blue and champagne.

I hope you enjoy a little peek into this dreamy wedding celebration.


This was one of my favorite moments from Zuzanna + Cole’s wedding reception, I love traditions!

The bride’s family is Polish, and it is tradition that before the reception begins, the newlyweds have their first toast: they are served one glass of vodka, one of water. The glasses are first offered to the bride – she makes her selection without knowing which is which. According to the tradition, whoever ends up with the glass of vodka will be the dominant partner in the relationship. I’m sure you can tell by their reactions whose shot contained the vodka!

    Wow, this wedding is so stunning! I absolutely love her bridal gown- with the open back- so elegant for a beach wedding! You’ve captured all the details so beautifully- I especially love the little rosemary sprigs on those gold rimmed crystal plates. They looked like they had so much fun at the reception party also!
