You might remember this bride from her fabulous watercolor bridal shower. It was an event of the prettiest proportions, so the fact that her wedding was equally amazing came as no surprise. Think causal boho meets southern tradition all brought together by Haute Horticulture and Everbloom Designs.

From the Bride… When I was planning our wedding, I knew I wanted to bring in a lot of who my husband and I are…our personal taste, our heritage, and family definitely was a very important aspect of our day. I picked the mint green and gold for the colors because they’ve always been some of my favorite colors and I knew it would bring in such a soft, happy and romantic feel to the day. I’ve always had a slight obsession with owls and we thought it would be fun to incorporate them in a whimsical way. But I still wanted it to have a personal touch, so I made the cake toppers and the boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen out of little owls that I found at craft supply stores.
I did a few more DIY projects from the dessert table sign to the “Senor” & “Senora” (Mr. & Mrs.) signs on the back of our reception chairs, we just wanted our fingerprint on every detail of the day. Bringing in our family and heritage was also very important to us. The rose petals that were used on the communion table during the ceremony were actually given to me from my Great Aunt Paula before she passed away, she had been saving them from her garden for years to give to me to use at my wedding. Some of the lace dollies used on the reception tablea were also given to me from her and it was so sweet to have her be a part of this special day. The earrings I wore were my Great Grandmother’s and my “something borrowed”. And having my brother officiate the wedding made it even more special and is something I will never forget.
Lastly, we knew we wanted to exit our wedding in an unique way because being an assistant to a wedding photographer, I’ve definitely seen it all as far as exits and just really wanted to do something completely different. We thought it would be awesome to incorporate both our Hispanic backgrounds (his side Puerto Rican and my side Mexican) by using maracas for the exit and they also doubled as our favors for all the guests to take home from the wedding. Our day couldn’t have been anymore perfect from the incredible weather, to having our family and close friends there to experience this milestone with us, there was so much warmth and love from everyone surrounding us and that is exactly how we wanted our day to feel.
