Hilton Beachside Wedding Melbourne FL | John and Kelly!

John and Kelly first met in high school and they were married in December at the Hilton Oceanfront on A1A. Sweet right?  She works for BCC and he’s at Harris.  I’ve known these two personally for a long time and was really looking forward to capturing their wedding day! Check out the engagement session post for more about the newlyweds…

Everything went so smoothly thanks to Kelly, her wedding planner and the Hilton staff. Kelly had prepared her own centerpieces ahead of time as well as the favors, etc. I love the plum accents, the manzanita trees, burlap and mercury glass – definitely some DIY inspiration here!  The ceremony took place under the tent on the ocean deck and the reception inside Jack’s Seafood restaurant (my favorite reception space at the Hilton)

John and Kelly had a beautiful day and I was privileged to be their chosen photographer. Read to the bottom for a complete list of vendors!


I’m a huge fan of vintage inspired dresses and jewelry so I loved Kelly’s lace dress (Aurora Bridal) as well as the filigree earrings. FYI… 5th Ave Hair Design comes to you for hair and makeup (link below.)

Someone must have special ordered this sky – AH MAZING!

I always love father-daughter dances and mother-son… These were really fun moments!

Many blessings on your marriage John and Kelly!
