Colleen & Evan's Elegant Evening Wedding at the Coral Bay Club
Wedding: 10 November 2018 | Posted: 22 February 2019
Each year, it seems, we have one wedding that's a party to top all others. For our 2018, Colleen & Evan's November wedding at the Coral Bay Club in Atlantic Beach definitely takes that accolade. It had all the pieces of an epic party: gorgeous location on the beach, day drinking on a party bus, hype wedding party in it to win it, a couple who was never far from the dance floor, killer DJ + club-style light show + CO2 cannons; all of them combined to make a wedding that goes down in our books as one of our favorites.
There was a lot of powerful sweetness in the day, as well, underscoring just how much love came together to make Colleen & Evan's wedding magical. Evan's longtime best friends live abroad and both made it in to be his co-Best Men—every interaction they had showed how thrilled they were to be together again. Evan eschewed a First Look so he could see Colleen for the first time down the aisle, and although the mist in his eyes didn't overflow (he told me later he was singing the ABCs in his head!), the smile he couldn't keep back showed his utter joy at marrying Colleen.
I wish I had space to extol all my favorite parts of the day—shots bought for them by a patron at their favorite waterfront bar, grandmas tearing up the dance floor, kisses from Good Boy Brody before the day kicked off, Colleen fishing an errant piece of cake from the front of her dress after the cake cutting—but I'll let it suffice to say just how much I love these two and how happy we are to have been a part of their incredible wedding day. Thank you, dear Colleen & Evan, for having us there to capture all this joy for you! Check out a few of our favorites below and send them some love in the comments!
