In other words, it’s a dream come true and you can see every last beautiful moment captured by Soul Echo Studios right here in the full gallery.
Mallerie and Tom chose a gorgeous historic property called The Addison for their Boca Raton wedding. When designing the look and feel of the wedding day, Mallerie envisioned a day infused with her bohemian spirit and filled with personal touches and whimsy. While the classic architecture of the venue set the stage, the gorgeous old banyan trees that fill the courtyard where the ceremony and reception were held really set the mood. Softly glowing lights were strung from the branches, creating a canopy of sparkle over the aisle and dance floor. We incorporated both round tables and family-style wooden tables, which were topped with a colorful mix of florals, assorted glassware and three types of candles. The main color palette was coral and lavender, accented with a variety of warm jewel tones, gold and chocolate brown. Mallerie wanted each table to look a bit different, so pieces were mixed and matched to give the design an effortless yet cohesive look. Gold-rimmed glassware and golden flatware added an elegant touch to the colorful tablescape. Escort cards were attached to unique drawer pulls sourced from Anthropologie, and served as a guest favor, along with sweet personalized packets of wildflower seeds. Guests finished off the night with an ice cream sundae and root beer float station to satisfy their sweet tooth before boarding the trolley that took them back to their hotels. It was a beautiful night, filled with friends, family and fun.

From the Bride… Our South Florida wedding was an intimate affair at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. All guests, except my mother, flew in from out of town. The resort was the perfect choice for our guests, who once arrived never had to leave, and for my husband and I, who were planning the wedding first from Charlotte, North Carolina and later New York City.
I absolutely love the Spanish style of the Boca Raton Resort. Our décor, from the mahogany Chiavari chairs, the hand-painted tile place cards, and the wrought iron candelabras, reflected this style. One of my favorite design elements that embodied the Spanish aesthetic was the chandeliers that hung from the arch during the ceremony. Because I could not get enough of them, these same chandeliers were later hung above the family tables during the reception. Another important aspect I considered throughout the planning process was the color of my wedding dress. Because I was not wearing white it was very important to me to still feel like a bride. The blush color scheme throughout the ceremony and reception paired with my blush dress, veil, shoes, and bouquet truly exceeded my expectations of what a bride should feel on her wedding day!
Looking back, I am so thankful that we decided to keep our wedding intimate because of the amount of quality time we were able to spend with family and friends. I am also thankful for our photographers, Alexi and Shane, who beautifully captured all of the memories that were made. I cannot help but smile every time I look at our photographs, which is still almost daily (I just can’t get enough!). Knowing the love and joy that was shared between my husband and I leading up to our wedding day and on that day excites me and reassures me that our next steps in life will be filled with equally as much or more love and joy!

I’ve spent my entire life obsessed with weddings. From the age of ten, I would leaf through bridal magazines like it was no one’s business, obsessing over every last floral arrangement, stunning locale and beautiful gown. But, my favorite part of the Big Day? The stories behind it all… the way it all came together. And these two Boca Raton sweeties? Well, they enlisted the help of family and friends to craft one of the most beautiful days you will ever see. From DIY paper goods to heartfelt favors to a special tribute to their Dachshund, Marley, it was an affair chock-full of gorgeous details and oh-so-special memories. See it all captured by Sj2 Photography in the full gallery.

From Sj2 Photography… I am so excited to share this Boca Raton, Florida wedding with you. It was definitely one of my favorite weddings to shoot. Brady and Tiffany had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the beautiful Addison in between two banyan trees under a string of bistro lights. The reception was to follow outdoors as well when suddenly it started to pour down rain and they had to move the festivities indoors. Although things changed, the wedding kept going. Just a true example that weddings do not usually go as planned but there is no need to stop the celebration! Each detail was carefully thought of and given a lot of attention to. It was a definite labor of love by the bride, family and friends.
From the Bride… Brady’s mom and I did a lot of the details ourselves. We spent hours embossing the menu cards and making the signs. We collected a bunch of mini bottles and cleaned them up. Brady’s mom does calligraphy so she made out all of the escort cards by hand. She’s seriously amazing. My bridesmaid Kelly made the cake topper. Brady randomly made me a really sweet playlist one day just because and we got the idea to share it with our guests. Since we already planned on leaving a ‘thank you’ at each place setting, we incorporated the thank you into the cd sleeves. Brady and I spent weeks burning the playlist onto discs that looked like records. In weeks leading to the wedding our Dachshund, Marley, got very sick. We were hoping to have him be part of the wedding. Since he was unable to attend. I wore a Dachshund necklace from Anthropologie in order to have him near my heart during the wedding.
