Bride Getting Ready at The Tides Collocated Club

You’re invited to experience Mike and Chelsea’s Tides Collocated Club wedding at the Patrick Space Force Base in Florida! Mike and Chelsea had dreamed of a relaxed, beachside wedding, and that is exactly what they got!

Mike and Chelsea enjoyed a beach wedding without being on the sand, thanks to the Tides Collocated Club’s raised porch overlooking the beach!

Here are a few of Chelsea’s details!…

… and Chelsea herself! As soon as I met her, I so appreciated her easy-going, relaxed personality.

And these flowers, as well as all the flowers in the reception space pictured later, were done by Patti at Buds, Etc. Everything she does is magical!!

Here are Chelsea’s attendants!

As soon as I arrived at the Tides Collocated Club wedding venue, I saw the turquoise ocean through the trees. I thought it added so much to the ambiance for Chelsea and Mike’s special day!

Groom Portraits

Every time Mike looks at Chelsea, you can just see him melt!

And here are Mike’s attendants!

That raised porch I mentioned earlier serves as the ceremony site at The Tides Collocated Club wedding venue. It had a screen shade over it which allowed us to get beautiful light for portraits AND the ocean in the background! Credit to Andrew for finding that spot first and giving me the tip!

Beachside Wedding at The Tides Collocated Club

Mike, waiting for his bride to come down the aisle. I love that he wore Chelsea’s Grandad’s tie for the wedding!

And here she comes!

I also loved the light blue of Chelsea’s dad’s jacket.

This shade at the Tides Collocated Club wedding venue made all the difference. The temperature was “only” 90 degrees that day but the “feels like” temperature was at least in the 100’s if I’m not mistaken.

Such a sweet kiss at the altar!

Beachside Bridal Party Photos at The Tides Collocated Club

This wonderful bridal party didn’t mind taking a short walk to reach the beach walkway for a few photos. As I mentioned, it was very warm that day, but they were so willing to do what I asked with a smile!

I love how Andrew framed this shot with the train of Chelsea’s outfit.

And even after the bridal party headed back over to the Tides, Mike and Chelsea stayed to do a handful more photos of just the two of them. They were great sports!




Wedding Reception at The Tides Collocated Club

The reception space inside The Tides was just right for what Mike and Chelsea had planned!

Mike and Chelsea have been known affectionately as Mr. & Mrs. Bear. These cake toppers were just perfect! And the cake was made by Amici’s Bakery!

These two entered their reception to a warm welcome from their guests and a dazzling sparkler show!


First Dance at The Tides

I loved how much of Mike and Chelsea’s personalities came out in their First Dance! It was so much fun!


Wedding cake cutting time!

DJ Shane was the ultimate entertainer, party starter, and DJ! If you’ve never seen him in action, you’re missing out. Shane can break the ice between your guests, get them engaged and having fun, and then keep them dancing all night long! It was such a FUN night! Be sure to check out his website here. We’ve never worked with a DJ quite like Shane; he was amazing at his craft!



At the end of the night, the newlyweds exited through yet another dazzling sparkler show!

Congratulations to both Mike and Chelsea! I so admired the tenderness and sweetness with which you look at each other. Thank you for allowing Andrew and I to be a part of your wedding day! We were so honored!
