A South Florida historical estate, bright bridesmaids and a beaming Bride and Groom; that right there is the recipe for success and Starfish Studios captured it all. The Addison was the perfect backdrop for this summer celebration and you can see every sparkling moment, from start to finish, right here.
From the Bride… I had this overall vision of elegance, romance, glamour and fun for my wedding. I really wanted everyone to look back and remember how beautiful everything was and how the night made them feel. I really put my stamp on the wedding with a few seemingly small, but important details. I actually created the invitations myself using a template I purchased from Etsy and then had them printed at Office Depot. It saved some money and they turned out really nice. Next was our sweetheart table, which I wanted to use as a centerpiece to the room in a sense. I selected a sky blue linen to draw color into the mostly gray and white motif and then added a really soft silky overlay to make it sparkle. Third, I had strands of crystals hanging from the tall centerpieces to add some glamour to each table and lastly, I surprised my groom with a Spider-Man figurine hidden in our beautiful cake from Creative Cake Factory as a fun detail just for him.
There were many memorable moments from my wedding day, but I will always remember opening the gift my husband-to-be had delivered as I was getting ready with my bridal party. It was this perfect little Tiffany & Co. pearl bracelet. He had worked with my bridal party to make sure his gift would go with my wedding day attire. It was really sweet! Also, seeing my dad standing there, waiting for me to take his arm right before heading down the aisle is a moment I will never forget. When all is said and done, walking down that aisle, seeing the results of months of hard work in what was without a doubt a breathtakingly beautiful setting; heading towards the man of my dreams is a moment I wish I could relive every day of my life! After the ceremony it was all about fun! Spencer and I danced to “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith and then we dined on what was without the doubt the best food ever served at a wedding.
From Cindy at The Addison… Working with Mollie and Spencer was a great experience. The Addison is a unique venue and the best weddings result when a bride uses the natural décor to her best advantage. The simple ceremony décor Mollie chose, including our Addison garden chairs with just an understated arch of greenery with white floral accents, really ensured the incredible pair of 100 year old Banyan trees and large cascading fountain took center stage. Mollie and Spencer selected the Mizner, which is the more classic ballroom of our two reception spaces, enabling her to really use her imagination to transform the space with décor. In the end the light blues she chose along with pink and purple up-lighting created a soft romantic feel. I loved her gown and how she color coordinated her bridesmaid’s dresses and the groomsman’s suits perfectly for the reception decor. The couple selected a great menu, including butler passed hors d’oeurves such as our Braised Beef Short Rib & Orange Segment, served on a bamboo spoon and our Caramelized Watermelon with Candied Pecans, Sonoma Valley Goat Cheese & Micro Arugula and two entrée’s for her guest to choose from tableside, including our Mustard Glazed Atlantic Salmon served with Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Broccolini with Fresh Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes. The couple shared a great sparkler exit and the guest’s could not have been more excited for the happy couple!
