The floral design in this wedding is legit to die for. I'm loving every petal I see from the white and black ranunculus in the bride's bouquet to the fluffy hydrangeas that adorn the altar to the beyond beautiful raised displays of yellow and pink roses dripping with crystal beads. BinaryFlips Photography was there to capture all the pretty details and we couldn't be happier! Click here for the full gallery.
From the Bride...When Peter and I first began the wedding planning process, we knew that we wanted it to be something that represented us as a couple with lots of personal details. We began brainstorming with our planner, but it really didn’t come into fruition until we started interviewing photographers. When we first met Dennis from Binaryflips, we sat down in a café to discuss our vision. While dating, Peter had introduced me to his favorite past time of bike riding. After a visit to his native country of Holland, we decided to purchase typical Dutch bicycles. That became the central theme of our wedding. Dennis immediately became excited and we brainstormed ways to incorporate the bicycles into our engagement shoot. The end result: Absolutely gorgeous shots in St. Augustine that had most people asking if we actually went to Holland for the shoot. The moral of this story is make sure that not only you are excited about theme, but also your photographer that way the pictures appear like you are having a good time and very natural! The rest was history- we began incorporating the bicycle in different areas of the wedding such as the save the dates, the invitations and even the topper. It was important not to go overboard with the theme, but it was used just enough to keep the wedding theme cohesive throughout all of the different wedding events.
One of my most favorite wedding planning tools was Etsy. There are so many talented people out there, why not put them to work for you. For example, I was stuck on an idea for the favors. We wanted to give something edible and I have always loved French Macarons. I found someone on Etsy that was willing to not only make the delicious cookies from scratch, but also package them elegantly in the color scheme we were using for the wedding- not to mention, her prices were extremely reasonable. What a time saver! Other items I purchased on Etsy were the bridesmaids’ gifts, the cake topper, the flower in my hair, wedding programs and thank you notes. Find sellers that are willing to work with you and brainstorm ideas to make your event personal!
On wedding day, with all the planning completed, I was pretty relaxed and just ready to be married. Dennis came to the house while I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. He and his team were able to capture the relaxed and laid back atmosphere before we headed off to the chapel. He took pictures of all the little details like our rings, the veil and (my favorite) the shoes! So many times these details get overlooked and now I have great pictures to remind me of what all of these accessories looked like.
