Happy, happy Monday, lovelies!  We have one very gorgeous Dade City wedding and a plethora of sweet DIY details to help us to jump start the week here on SMP Florida and, well, we couldn’t be more pleased.  Because, really, what’s better than a day filled to the brim with handcrafted goodness, vibrant colors and brilliant images captured by Mandy and Me Studio?  Plus, with a little rain adding some romance (and super cute photo ops) to this heartwarming affair, we guarantee that you’ll be swooning all the way ’till NEXT Monday.  Click here for more.

From Mandy of Mandy and Me Studio… Erica + Mike + 200 vases = one heck of a wedding that not even the rain could stop from being awesome. As it is with every wedding, we always like to monitor the weather so we are prepared. We knew there was a high chance of rain during this wedding but we were determined to make it work. We were pleasantly surprised to find out Erica and Mike were just as determined to make it work as we were. So the dress got a little dirty? So what? A couple drops of rain on the awesome suit? Nothing dry cleaning can’t fix, and all worth it to get some awesome pictures. It was a heart warming experience for us, and we are just glad things fell in place to make their special day a memorable one.

There were 200 different vintage vases at this wedding that the bride and groom had been hunting down prior to their wedding. They had the cutest little cake topper. Erica is a gifted artist and made many of her wedding details herself.
