Beautiful Waterfront Wedding


From Kristen Hansen of Flawless Fetes: “Emily and Nick were married on a February afternoon at the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast. Overlooking the Manatee River, this is the perfect venue for couples wanting a romantic and unique outdoor wedding. The day was full of special details, from the one-of-a-kind charms by Your Charmed Wedding, showcasing photos of Emily’s late grandparents on her bouquet, to the tolling of the neighbor’s historic bell as the two sealed their I Do’s with a kiss! Following the ceremony, guests started the party as they danced to songs played by Nick and Emily’s favorite local band, Roberto and the Flats, and got silly in a custom photo booth put together by their photographer Ashlee Hamon Photography. To put a cap on a wonderful evening, friends and family lined the riverfront with sparklers as Nick, Emily, and their parents sent three Chinese sky lanterns off  into the night!”
