Citrus-Inspired Southern Wedding Shoot

Summer brides of 2015, take note: this shoot crafted by Unearthed Vintage is bound to become your new best friend. It’s a gorgeous combination of color, whimsy and warm-weather romance, and to say we’re obsessed is kind of an understatement. The florals by Julia Rohde Designs play off the citrus-driven details and that soft, film photography by Michelle March? Utter perfection. More goodies here!

From Katie at Unearthed VintageMy inspiration for this shoot came from two areas in my life, my wonderful childhood and teenage years and who I am now as an adult. I grew up in upstate New York working on a local family farm. I spent 7 years waking up early, picking corn, and helping work at the market gaining lots of knowledge of local fruits, veggies, and flowers. During our summers we’d make homemade strawberry jam and strawberry rhubarb pies. After moving to Miami I thought for sure the “farmer” in me would be lost in the hustle and bustle of city life and South Beach. When I discovered Estancia Culinaria I once again felt like I was at home. A hidden gem in South Florida, it is our version of the south, and a truly inspiring location that feels magical the second you step into the gates.

South Florida is full of citrus fruits, bright colors, and sunny days. When pulling together ideas and inspirations I couldn’t help but want to pull in pieces of my past giving them a fresh twist with my South Florida life. What a better way than team up with a group of wonderful vendors to show everyone what the South in South Florida really means. We wanted to be sure to include the bright citrus fruits that can be found all over the state and Julia and Desi did so perfectly in their floral designs and desserts. The citrus also paired perfectly with the craft cocktail bars and also local craft beers that were the perfect parting gift for all of the guests.

From Julia at Julia Rohde DesignsSouth Florida brings a lot of natural beauty in the foliage and fruits that are naturally grown here. We wanted to create bright, lush florals that tied in locally sourced Florida grown products to replicate a realistic southern wedding floral design concept that brides can have for their wedding day. Some of the locally sourced foliage and fruits were blush and white bi-color bougainvillea, fresh mint herb, delicate vines and kumquats, all organically grown by South Florida nurseries and florals such as honeysuckle and orange blossom sourced from local wholesalers. The pops of of coral, pale peach, orange and yellow toned florals were used to tie in with the various citrus fruits such as grapefruit, kumquats and oranges that are so abundantly produced in Florida and such an inspiration to this Florida Groves shoot.

Elegant Thalatta Estate Wedding

Oh, do I love a Miami affair peppered in pink. Shades of flamingo, blush, softly sweet pinks just fit with the magic city like no other. And with Miranda Hattie Events behind the design helm, the rest of the romantic details fit perfectly into place. From the twinkly-lit clear tent from Unearthed Vintage, to the baby’s breath wrapped ceremony arbor to every touch of glamour, Michelle March tells this story like a fairy tale.

From Miranda Hattie Events… This gorgeous event was held at the Thalatta Estate in southern Miami, a pretty waterfront venue with a picturesque lawn for the ceremony site and a brick courtyard perfect for an outdoor reception. The uncharacteristically cold weather meant that we had to bring in a tent (and heaters!) at the last minute, but we chose a clear structure that let in the night sky and brought everyone together in a delightfully cozy way under the glow of bistro lights.

The wedding palette was primarily shades of white and ivory with bits of blush and a hint of sparkle for glamour. The florist, Anthology Co Floristry, did a beautiful job of achiving a look that was both romantic and sophisticated, incorporating mirrored pieces with mercury glass, while the bride added lots of fun details. She made giant glittery letters to be used for the sweets table and used chalkboards for cute signage pieces (AND hand-wrote each guests name on the seating chart on the morning of her wedding!)

I asked the bride, Laura, what her favorite moment of the day was and she told me: “It may come across as strange but my favorite moment of the day was leaving the wedding. We had just ran through the mayhem that was our sparkler exit and into that warm comfy car. I looked at Wagner and felt so utterly happy that he was my husband. The driver put on some nice tunes while we relaxed and recapped the day.”

Her advice for brides? “Enjoy the process. Although it can be stressful, time consuming, expensive, and monotonous (hello DIY), remember that you only get to do it once. Cherish the times that your friends and family came over to help you with “wedding stuff”. Laugh at all the ridiculousness that gets thrown your way (arriving to the ceremony in a hot air balloon/boat/horse/unicorn, coming out for the first dance like the Miami Hurricanes, etc.) You might miss all of it once it’s over.”

Outdoor Art Gallery Wedding in Miami

In Miami there lies a pretty art gallery that happens to have one very fabulous green garden. It’s a space transformed by Danielle Cipriani and Unearthed Vintage into a coconut toting, family style reception who’s laid back, simple details only add to the overall beauty of the day. Take one look at the gallery captured by Jessica Lorren Organic Photography and you’ll be smitten too.

From The Bride…Miami was always where we envisioned getting married. I am the editor of racked.com and Andy is the CFO of jugofresh. We are in New York City, and Miami was our first trip together as a couple. When we moved here more than four years later, it seemed fated. When you’re our age (early 30s), you’ve been to more than a dozen weddings, and you’ve drawn up a list of likes and don’t likes. We both agreed we wanted the event to feel like a casual backyard dinner–just a bit more sophisticated. The M Building in Miami’s Wynwood, an underused space that doubles as an art gallery, was a perfect match. Since our guests were flying in from all over the country, we wanted to make the night really fun and relaxed for them, too. Our friends at Coconut Cartel made custom coconuts for people to enjoy when they arrived, which really helped set the mood. The entire night was incredible, but the ceremony was really the highlight. We met Levi Felix, our officiant, when we went on a digital detox [thedigitaldetox.org] retreat outside San Francisco a few years ago. He was such an amazing and genuinely warm and kind person, and we were thrilled when he agreed to travel all the way to Florida for our wedding.
