From The Groom…We met doing an ER rotation in Jacksonville, FL. We met on the first day when Meg’s key card didn’t work and she had to stay after orientation to get it fixed. Perfect opportunity…I got my perfectly functional key card fixed too. After that we checked the schedule and made a point to run into each other whenever possible. After two weeks I asked Meg to dinner and we have been inseparable since.

From The Bride…I am a small town Southern girl from North Carolina and Anthony is from a big sweet Cuban family in Miami. After searching we found a beautiful restored house in Boca Raton with an elegant covered courtyard. The Banyon trees made a romantic outside space and put us over the top. I wanted to include soft southern details so I chose a color palette with blush, gold and ivory (let’s be honest I’ve had these wedding colors picked out for quite a while). Our sweet pastor from NC and my amazing photographer friends flew in as well. My selfless southern mother made her renown blueberry jam for all the wedding guests. The day was fun, romantic, full of dancing and filled with Southern charm. God gave us this day and it was more perfect than Anthony and I could have ever imagined. It was the best day of our lives so far and couldn’t have been possible without all these wonderful people.

From The Bride…On our very first date, Blaine took me to one of the most beautiful restaurants I had ever been to, The Addison. I remember thinking how romantic a wedding would be under the 2 large banyan trees and decided if I ever got married this would have to be the spot. Six years later, my dream came true.

The Addison has so much natural beauty and charm, I chose to play up the romance of the venue and compliment it with blush, cream, and gold detailing. This wedding was a labor of love and Blaine and I spent many hours creating a day that was completely “us.” With the help of our friends and family, and numerous bottles of gold spray paint and white paint markers, we were able to make most of the important details ourselves. Our escort card display was made on a headboard we found outside of our apartment with the calligraphy done by myself and some friends. We also made the welcome sign, ceremony board, and quote boards. Blaine made our wine box that we used for our ceremony and we found a vintage dictionary at an old bookstore that we used for our guest book.

Blaine and I share a very close group of friends and we always knew we wanted to include them in our day. Our friend Mike is in school for architecture and graciously did a line drawing of The Addison that we used on our Save the Dates. My friend Nick always joked that he would sing at our wedding one day and when we were thinking about first dance songs we knew he had to be the one to sing it. We both agreed that we did not want to have a stranger marry us and knew that our friend Jesse would be the perfect person to officiate our ceremony. Together we wrote our ceremony, carefully picking readings and sayings that meant a lot to us as a couple. When the time came for Blaine to read his vows, we heard the faint sound of the train in the distance and my heart sank as this was something I was warned about.

However, listening to him spill his heart out and watching the tears about to fall from his eye, Jesse threw in a quick joke and we were able to laugh and take a quick dance break as the train roared by. It gave me a second to regroup before I read my vows and will remain one of my favorite moments of the night.

From the beautiful Bride… Harrison and I met during our second year at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. He saw me at the gym, found out we had some mutual friends and then arranged for my friends and I to come hangout with him and some of his roommates one night. After that, we started hanging out regularly and ended up dating on and off for three years. Harrison asked me to marry him in February of 2014, and we quickly decided that we wanted to get married within the same year. We both wanted to say “I Do” outside so we chose November in hopes of a perfect cool day in South Florida.

The Addison was the first and last venue we looked at! Right away we loved the atmosphere and energy of the Addison and knew it was where we would get married. It has so much character with all the beautiful archways, unique doors, warm colors and distinct architecture.

It was important for us to have the wedding reflect both of us and our personalities. I wanted a romantic, elegant feel with personal details that reflected both of us. I knew I wanted my bridesmaids in blush so I incorporated different shades of blush, metallics, and soft pastels into all the details and flowers.

My mom and I took a trip down the street from the Addison to try on gowns at Boca Raton Bridal and I ended up selected the third dress I tried on, although I did go to other bridal shops and tried on loads of gowns after finding “the one” just to be sure! It was an Eve of Milady ball gown with an all lace bodice and full tulle layered skirt. For my bridesmaids I chose long chiffon Amsale dresses in blush and let my girls choose whatever style top they liked best.

For the reception I collected mercury glass vases of different sizes and heights for months and used a small grouping of them on the tables for the centerpieces. That way each table was different, which was the look I was going for. Our florist, Lynne at Creative Florals, did a great job using an array of blush and neutral toned flowers with different greens which turned out beautifully. I originally planned on doing my own flowers, but am very glad I decided not to as some things should just be left to the professionals! However, I did enjoy doing other little details with my sisters. For the seating chart, we tied skeleton keys to pretty embossed tags with the guests name and table number on them. The wedding favors were small glass maple leaf containers with real maple syrup in them from Harrison’s family store in Vermont. In front of each place setting we had a thank you card printed for our family and friends who came from all over the U.S. to be with us, which we were extremely grateful for.

I loved every part of our wedding, but there are a few moments that really stood out to me when I reflect back on that day. The first was hearing Harrison say his vows to me at the altar- it was so special and meant so much to me. Another was during the ceremony when we all sang a hymn under the huge Banyan trees. It was a magical moment! Looking around and seeing all of your closest friends and family at the end of the ceremony and at the reception is another amazing feeling. Future brides- when you are at your reception sitting next to your new husband take at least a minute to just look around the room and take in everyone you love and how amazing it is that they are all there to support you. Also, if you get married at the Addison make sure to take the time to enjoy the food as it is absolutely incredible! The day went by so fast, but we both consider it the best day of our lives!
