“Our winter wedding at the beach was beyond what we expected. Stepping out that morning on the balcony, I was able to relax and hear the calmness of the ocean. We loved that time of year so much, we came back for our anniversary and it was just as calm and beautiful as our wedding day!”

CourtneyAndBrians-bridal-partyWhen Courtney and Brian got engaged, they knew they wanted to have a winter wedding.

The couple decided on the Madison Beach Hotel as the perfect site for a festive winter wonderland wedding, in a quiet, calming and private atmosphere.

“Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, so I thought let’s continue the Christmas celebration with a wedding following the holiday. Picking out our colors for the wedding was easy.  An homage to my grandmother, we chose grey, as it was her favorite color and a winter wedding screams silver and sparkle.  The style of my dress and those in my bridal party were based on an old Hollywood theme.  For the flower girls, it was December, so we picked beautiful sparkly silver dresses with headbands that looked like snowflakes. When I walked into the hotel, the beautiful staircase and lobby just screamed old Hollywood to me. It all came together so seamlessly.”

From the snow-inspired Baby’s Breath centerpieces, to the crystals that resembled icicles and falling snow in the floral arrangements. Not to mention, the silver glitter snowflake detail on the programs, to the beautiful silver trees that housed the guests’ name tags, with a small rhinestone snowflake to remind them of Christmas and a keepsake to hang from their Christmas tree every year.
