Lisa + Mike | Pelican Grand Beach Resort Wedding

by Emily Pogozelski

We’re always so proud of Florida when the weather is perfect for couples who came from far away to get married here. Sunny weather, sparkling aqua water, a refreshing breeze… it’s like this so often I think we sometimes forget just how lovely it can be! The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is one of the few resorts along the Fort Lauderdale coast that’s actually right on the beach, and they take full advantage of their location, with big windows, balconies, and rooftop terraces where you feel like you’re on top of the world and could practically touch the ocean. Lisa + Mike’s destination wedding was certainly a refreshing break from the sputtering spring in New England, and we’re so happy to have met so many wicked awesome people from the Boston area! We spent the day with this sweet couple (a fellow met-online-marriage), and were awed by their family and friends’ closeness, laughter, and heartiness on the dance floor. Thank you to everyone for making us feel so at home, and thank you to Lisa + Mike for sharing your day with us.

Anyone else see a hammock between the palm tree shadows? ;-)

Thank you so much for checking out our favorites– please leave some comment love for Lisa + Mike below! xoxo Em + Steve
