An Intimate Wedding Dinner At Zota Beach Resort


When Paola + Perry began planning their wedding day, they envisioned being surrounded by their closest friends and family. These would be the people that understood their story and only wished the best for their brand new chapter as husband and wife. Once they had figured out the basics of their wedding night, it was clear that they wanted a micro wedding dinner to celebrate their love. At the end of April, they did just that at the Zota Beach Resort.

The Bride

For the intimate wedding dinner, Paola wore a simply exquisite wedding dress. It had a deep-cut neckline that was offset by its modest shoulders. The silk skirt of the dress started high on her waistline and effortlessly went down to the ground. She paired the dress with a low bun and dainty gold accessories.

The Groom

Perry got ready in another room at the Zota Beach Resort with his closest family and friends. He wore a light grey/brown classic suit and paired it with a white button-down shirt. The accent piece in the look was a classic navy blue tie to top it all off.

First Look

To keep with the theme of having an intimate evening, the bride and groom made sure to take a moment before all guests arrived. Once they were ready, Perry waited for Paola out on the terrace. He had his back turned when she entered the space to add to the suspense of laying his eyes on his beautiful bride for the first time that day. She walked up behind him, tapped on his shoulder, then he turned around. There she was, the woman he had fallen in love with so easily. Within the hour, she would be his wife.

The Dinner

Guests arrived at the Zota Beach Resort’s Sunset Terrace. It was the perfect location for the night ahead. A long table ran along the terrace with white linen. Displays of colorful bouquets were also thoughtfully placed along the middle of the table. Guests sat on opposite sides and awaited the couple of the hour to join them.

Once all seated, Paola + Perry made their entrance. They started with a speech that then lead to them exchanging their vows. It was all sealed with a slip of the rings across their fingers. They were finally husband and wife!

The rest of the night was filled with good food, more toasts, and of course some dancing. It was a night worth remembering for everyone in attendance.
