We have a delightfully marvelous wedding for you this morning by Lori Barbely Photography. A little bit J Crew mixed with a little Anthropologie and a whole lot of love equals a whimsical, modern affair full of fun little details. I am completely smitten with the giant paper flowers that fill the milk glass centerpieces. Such a fun and unexpected touch! Click here to see even more sweet details in the full gallery!
It was a love of the outdoors that connected the bride and groom when they first met and after becoming engaged on the top of a mountain in North Carolina, they were determined to find the perfect outdoor setting for their wedding day. They found their ideal location on the dock and in the gardens of Enzo's Italian Restaurant on the water in Longwood, FL.
The bride and groom wanted a vintage-meets modern themed wedding that was elegant yet relaxed and most of all, fun! The look could be described as J.Crew meets Anthropologie and the color scheme was yellow and navy. The bride spent 6 months collecting antique, hobnail vases for the centerpieces. Paper flowers filled the vases inside, while the outside garden and dock were adorned in craspedia, chamomile, baby's breath, forsythia and daises.
A highlight of the wedding ceremony was the bride's niece and flower girl, pulling her two twin nephews and ring-bearers in a vintage radio flyer filled with yellow rose petals.
After the ceremony, the wedding guests enjoyed cocktails on the dock followed by dinner inside. A candy bar was set with Navy M&M's, Yellow Whirly pops, Lemon Drops and an assortment of mini cupcakes. In lieu of traditional favors, a donation was made to the American Cancer Society on behalf of the wedding guests.
A sign with the couple's initials was made of navy and yellow fabric flower pins. As the night wore on, guests were encouraged to dismantle the sign and wear these pops of color. As the sun set over the water, hanging vintage lanterns and twinkling lights outlined the deck area for dancing under the stars.
A farewell line of bubble wands adorned with navy and yellow ribbon was the perfect end to a perfect wedding day.
