Planning a wedding under $10,000 dollars isn’t always easy, but with the help of the talented April Dorsey from The Dtales and some fabulous shabby chic stylings, this bride and groom pulled it off with flying colors and then some with a breathtaking ceremony held at the Holy Cross Catholic Church, followed by one seriously gorgeous reception at the Village Walk Clubhouse in Orlando.  On hand to capture all of the pretty, pretty details?  The ever-wonderful Absolute Love Photography, making for one can’t-miss gallery.  Join me there for sooo much more.

From The Dtales… An elegant Shabby Chic wedding based in Orlando, Florida. Nothing was spared for this wedding – from Jimmy Choo shoes to burlap wedding favors.  Every component of the wedding was a detailed description of their love and handmade with love from the entire family.  So many amazing details made this budget wedding look like a million bucks. From the DIY burlap/lace bags, containing their favorite farmer’s market treat of kettle corn to a homemade custom cake, made by mom – yes, even the sugar peonies.  No detail went unnoticed.  Blink and you might miss the special elements, from their engagement photoshoot calendar to their handmade shabby chic “escort card” window pane door.  Planning this wedding with Alex was amazing and we put pinterest to good work.  Sharing a custom board with eath other (along with the gazillion texts about ideas and items we couldnt wait to share, the amazing part was the budget. The entire wedding was under $10K (not including the shoes and dress) and something nobody would ever have known.
