Whimsical Rustic Spring Wedding in Florida

Posted by Alexandra on May 31, 2013

Allie & Matt

May 18

Tallahassee, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We knew about this place first, and loved it but wanted to find something more wild. After searching all over Tallahassee we were just drawn back to Lichgate and its sweet cabin and huge live oak. It just looked like a fairytale.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

We loved the handmade bananagrams tiles laser cut by Matt’s brother and my best friend, Michael Taylor; the individually bought tea sets that we turned into candles (which were our favors), and the white lights strung over the reception, particularly over the dance floor and under the big tree.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

People say it all of the time, but seriously, get someone to run the wedding the day of. My best friend/MOH planned the entire wedding, but her and her boyfriend tag-teamed running the actual wedding that night. She had a schedule for everyone and everything. If she wasn’t there that day nothing would have run nearly as smoothly as it did. 

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

We keep randomly bursting out with, “It was so perfect, It was so beautiful!.” But the funniest part is, after all of the planning, we forgot to rent cups! So everyone drank out of champagne flutes!

Kimberly & Tonya

August 6

Naples, Florida

~~~~~~~~

From the Event Planner: 

“The couple chose to exchange vows on the lawn of Fleischmann Park overlooking the Gulf in Downtown Naples FL.  The day could not have been more beautiful and everyone got a giggle when the flower girl tossed her basket down the aisle. A reception followed at the Naples Bay Resort where the guests dined on small plates, each representing a different borough of New York City.  Kim and Tonya knew they wanted a NYC-themed wedding to celebrate the city where they fell in love – we focused on Central Park as the inspiration for the decor. The room was filled with large plants and the centerpieces featured large trees with hanging candles and orchids. The couple surprised the guests by changing into tuxes and serving a late night snack of candied nuts and warm pretzels just as you would have on the streets of NYC.” -Kehrin Hassan, Jet Set Wed

Modern Spring Yellow and Gray Wedding in Florida

Melissa & Stephen

March 30

Tampa, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I wanted an indoor/outdoor venue with a view. I really had a hard time finding something like that in the Tampa/St. Pete area. All it took was one tour of the Westin’s BluVu Room and I was sold! The view is absolutely spectacular indoors and outdoors!

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The outdoor patio décor (grass bar, patterned tablecloths, and fun pillows), the card table showing pictures of family members that are no longer with us, and the candy bar.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Enjoy the planning process! It can sometimes become tedious and stressful, but seeing your vision come to life at the end is all worth it!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

I really loved the grand exit with the sparklers! It really solidified that we were finally married!

Glowing Sunset Fall Wedding in Florida

Posted by Caitlin on Apr 11, 2013

Stephanie & Scott 

November 24

Davie, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I knew I wanted something different. I did not want a traditional wedding, and I knew I wanted it to be outside. My grandparents house had all the bones that I needed. We just needed to make it come alive for our wedding. The fact the it was my families house just made it even more special.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My favorite detail was my grandfather’s truck. It’s a 1926 Model T Pickup Runabout. My dress, of course, I would wear it every day if I could, and the table I set up for my husband. I wanted something special so that people, who didn’t know him, would really get a sense of who he is. His table had really nice whiskey for him to share, screen printed rocks glasses with bicycles on them, since he enjoys ridding bikes, Masonic symbols, since he is a Mason and hand painted pictures from friends. He is a tattoo artist along with his friends, so it was nice to surprise him with paintings along with having them as keepsakes from our day. Lastly, I had a sign hung behind the table that said, “Ride bikes, drink beer, get awesome.” I’m pretty convinced that’s my husband and his friends’ motto to life!

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

For me, I had seen pieces of my wedding details leading up to the wedding, but I never saw everything all put together ready to go. In a way, this was a little nerve racking, but it was also an exciting factor. After taking our pictures prior to the wedding, I pulled up to the house just in time to run in, change and run out. Pulling up, I saw tons of people, heard the perfect music and saw the most amazing glow of light coming from the house. I knew that we had achieved the most perfect glow of light and feel that I was going for.  Walking out, down the aisle and seeing everyone looking back and all the details put together was an awesome feeling! I was so taken back at how perfect everything was, all while seeing all these faces staring back at you, trying not to trip and making sure to tell myself not to “ugly face cry.”  It was really an awesome moment, one ill never forget! My wedding was by far one of the top three moments of my life. So many people worked so hard for so long, and I’ll never forget it!

St. Patrick’s Day Wedding in Florida

Posted by Kim on Mar 15, 2013

Cori & Charles

March 17

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The stunning view! It’s one of the only venues in South Florida that has a pool terrace right on the ocean. We had the entire pool deck reserved all night.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

Hands down it was our photography, the green and white flowers including hand cut shamrocks, and our Celtic hand tying ribbon ceremony.  I spent a lot of time on the details and it really paid off.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

I will never forget the moment that Charles saw me for the first time at our “first look”.  The moment was so special and intimate I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
