When the venue is called Couples Swept Away, you better believe the vibe is nothing short of relaxed and romantic. Gia and Hunter hosted their friends and family for an unforgettable celebration of their love on Negri’s famous 7 Mile Beach. And no detail was spared!
Gia and Hunter’s taste is classic and elegant and can be seen in everything from the apparel to the decor. Gia’s girls wore pale blue gowns by Azazie, while the men wore crisp black suits to complement. Despite a bit of rain sneaking in right before the ceremony, everyone agreed it was a blessing in disguise that cooled the night down for an extra dose of relaxation!
Gia and Hunter exchanged vows under a gorgeous pergola adorned with classic palm fronds and crisp white drapery. And they treated their guests to a fun-filled night of dancing under a wonderfully lit beach reception where the string lights were so abundant they seemed to fade into the night sky. Magdalena Studios was able to capture everything from the sweet and intimate moments to the rowdy fun that was had by all.
