On a gorgeous day in Naples, Florida, Mallory West and Corey Owens said, “I do.” It really was the perfect day!
Mallory beamed as she prepared for her wedding day in a beautiful suite at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples. She was surrounded by her friends and family. Mallory and her mother, Kelli, shared several special moments, one of which included Mallory receiving a beautiful pearl necklace with a diamond heart, pearl earrings and a lovely gold bracelet, all belonging to her grandmother.
The couple began with a beautiful ceremony at the Oasis Naples Church. Before the ceremony, Mallory and her dad, Gary, shared a tender “first look.” He beamed with pride. Mallory looked radiant in her stunning, lace and beaded, off the shoulder gown, chapel train and veil. She was accompanied by her bridesmaids, Tori, Magen and Reagan, and flower girl, MaCall. The lady’s blush gowns matched the color theme of the wedding. MaCall wore a tea-length navy dress and looked like a princess. Corey looked dashing in his tailored, navy suit and blush bowtie. The groomsmen, Connor and Carter wore a navy and blush combo, as well.
As Mallory walked down the aisle, Corey was overcome with love. The loving couple shared vows and a set of extremely special rings. Corey’s father, Bill, passed his heirloom wedding set down to his son. So beautiful! The two sealed their vows with a sweet kiss and joy filled the church! Mallory and Corey were when whisked off to the fountain at Pelican Marsh and to Barefoot Beach State Preserve for sensational photos.
The reception was held at the picturesque Barefoot Boat Club. The club looked lavish in wedding décor. We found out later that many of the decorations were created by the bride and her family. From the ornate wedding invitations, made by Mallory, to the gorgeous backdrop made by her parents, the décor looked fabulous. Even Grandma West participated with lovely, handmade, personalized candy covers for favors. It was so impressive!
During the cocktail hour, wedding guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Eric and Chef Bruce from Naples Wedding Catering by Frisco’s while taking in the serene nautical views. The newlyweds arrived and the party began! The romantic first dance was nothing short of magical. Corey and Mallory gazed adoringly while they swayed to the music. A heartfelt Father/Daughter dance was next followed by toasts, dinner, wedding cake and dancing. These two families knew how to party! The deejay, Kimberly with Elite Sounds of Florida did a phenomenal job and kept the party jumping. What a night!
We were absolutely honored to be a part of their perfect day and wish them an abundance of love, health and happiness.
“Time is very slow for those who wait
Very fast for those who are scared
Very long for those who lament
Very short for those who celebrate
But for those who love, time is eternal.”
