From Love in Vintage… A lush and greenery farm in South Florida was transformed into an enchanting garden, which set the perfect tone for this charming and whimsical styled shoot. Our inspiration was a whimsical fairytale that celebrates and captures the beauty of a bride on her special day – a day she has been dreaming of since she was a little girl. Our focus was to showcase the dreamy bride on her day exploring her picturesque setting and enjoying a few of her favorite things: lots of sweets, beautiful flowers, books, bubbly champagne, and of course, puppy dogs!

As the bride enters this enchanted garden wearing a vintage dress that belonged to her grandmother, she finds her pups running free through a grove of trees. A table is set for the perfect wedding reception adorned with vintage china, a candelabra, and enough flowers to make any girl blush. The table setting reflects a rustic glam charm with twine wrapped embroidered napkins and rose etched glassware. Mismatched chairs offer a change of pace and a unique take on the traditional reception table. Strolling the path through the trees she finds her bouquet, a generous gathering of greens including fresh herbs accented by soft dahlias, mini roses and succulents. Following her pups she is lead to a lounge complete with a gorgeous tufted olive green sofa, a side table and seating for guests.

Love is a sweet celebration and no party is ever complete without sweets! An indulging Macaron Bar offering flavors of gold washed hazelnut, pistachio and raspberry delights for the bride and guest to enjoy. Up on the hill a more traditional approach has been taken with the cake table. A vintage desk provides a twist on the typical cake table while allowing the cake to make a statement. At the bottom of the hill, nestled by a lavish bougainvillea bush stands a dessert hutch encased with a dessert station fit for a queen. A golden cake is sitting pretty surrounded by the bride’s favorite confections and flowers. The fairytale wedding the bride has always dreamt of has become a reality. The beautiful bride is ready to see her groom and live happily ever after.
