Florida Wedding full of Vintage Charm

As much as I love a great glitter moment (hello table numbers) it’s the last kiss of this gorgeous wedding night captured by Ashley McCormick that really sealed the deal. It’s the perfect ending to a beautiful day full of vintage details by RW Events, florals by Peddles and, of course, some great glitter details thrown in for good measure. See even more right here.

From Mallory, the Bride… Brad and I had huge crushes on each other before we ever met. We went to the same gym for over a year and saw each other almost daily, but we were both too shy to introduce ourselves. I eventually moved to the opposite side of town (and a new gym). A couple of years later, we happened to run into each other at a local watering hole. We finally had the courage to talk to each other that night, and we have been inseparable ever since.

Our wedding day was everything we dreamt it would be. From the bowtie napkin folds, to the vintage tufted chairs and settee, to the mint green armoire we used as our cake table and the vintage Cadillac getaway car, every detail oozed vintage charm.

One of my favorite wedding projects was putting together a display of all of our guests’ wedding pictures. We were able to get a wedding photo from every single married couple that attended ours. It was a huge project (thank goodness we had almost two years of planning time), but they payoff was a beautiful display of over 40 photos of the people we love most on their own special day. It was so rewarding to watch our guests find their wedding photo and instantly be brought back to their very own wedding day.

One of the most memorable parts of the evening was honoring my grandparents during the reception as they celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary that night. I introduced my grandparents to our guests and shared their story – how they moved their family of seven from the Philippines to the U.S. but not before spending more than seven years apart from my grandfather after he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. I explained that when my grandparents were married fifty-five years prior, they had borrowed everything from the veil to the bouquet from their church. I then dedicated my bridal bouquet to my grandmother because she deserved to have her own. We all toasted to my grandparents’ accomplishment and watched as they shared their own special dance to the song Unchained Melody, sung by my lovely sister.

Brad and I waited for so long to meet each other, wondering silently and curiously about each other. When we look back now, we know that it was meant to be that way. Neither of us ever will ever forget that feeling of butterflies that we used to get as we would pass each other in the gym, and we will always know how lucky we are to be in each other’s lives in the capacity that we are today. It may have taken some time to get there, but when we were both ready to meet our other half, just like our wedding day, it all happened so seamlessly.

Raspberry + Striped Wedding Inspiration

Three things that are on my favorite list are present in this beautiful bit of wedding inspiration from Amalie Orrange Photography: stripes, that beautiful raspberry color, and a naked cake. In my humble opinion, the shoot, dreamed up by Ashley Stapleton of Table 6 Productions, featured the trifecta of perfect wedding details, and I’ll love it forever because of it!

Whimsical

From Amalie Orrange Photography… Ashley from Table 6 productions came to me with an amazing idea for a shoot, a bright fresh raspberry palette with a nice bold black and white stripe, I was sold! 

This shoot really started with raspberries! Ashley knew from the start she wanted to incorporate that beautiful raspberry color and she loved the idea of pairing it with something bold like black and white. The cake was a huge part of the shoot for her, she really wanted the cake to be bold, fresh and romantic and we think the naked cake with fresh berries captured all those elements perfectly in one.

From the stunning bride… Trevor and I met in college where we were both studying their passions. Though our fields are very different, we found something familiar and inspiring in one another. After five years as a couple, Trevor proposed to me under the same weeping willow where I played as a child. Our wedding was a reflection of what matters most: Our southern roots and the timeless values that will guide us on their new journey as husband and wife.

From the Down the Aisle Weddings & Events… We absolutely adored this couple, and are elated that they loved every detail of their big day as much as we did.

Ashley and Trevor are a true vintage couple! Their home, fashion, and likes are all influenced by a classic, throwback style, and that is what we wanted to bring into their wedding day, our plan was to create an aesthetic that was truly romantic and soft, drawing on a color palette that accents the beauty of our bride and groom and the rich settings that surround them, making for visually arresting images of this timeless couple.

During our first consultation, Ashley said she wasn’t set on a color scheme or flowers, but rather wanted every decorative element to compliment their venue, an historic inn in the heart of downtown Orlando. Being familiar with the venue’s existing decor, we suggested doing a bridal bouquet consisting of natural cotton and some blush blooms and assorted berries. She loved the idea, so with this in mind, we suggested a mix of ivory, blush, and soft yellow florals offset with rich gold accents. We are in love with the bridal bouquet– it was amazing to see our vision brought to life so beautifully!

As the sun set, the DJ kept the wedding guests dancing the night. The cake, had a lovely vintage cake topper selected by the bride and was accompanied by a selection of mini desserts that were a big hit with the guests.

Rustic Glamour from 5Thirteen Designs + Jessica Connery Photography

I like to think of this darling shoot as the perfect way to start the weekend.  Well, that, and a darn good way to spend your Friday.  Because when a talented team of vendors (think 5Thirteen DesignsL.I.F.E Events and De Azucar Bakeshop… just to name a few) join forces for some citrus-inspired pretty, it’s a sort of virtual celebration.  One that combines drop-dead gorgeous stylings with non-stop inspiration.  See it all captured by Jessica Connery right here.

From 5Thirteen DesignsGet ready to feast your eyes on the beauty of this styled shoot! We designed this shoot with an aim to incorporate chic and rustic elements in a quaint southern setting. Choosing three colors (pink, green, and yellow) within the citrus family, we focused on delicate and elegant details accented with gold. We featured a real life couple who are so passionate about each other you could hear the air sizzle between them.

The exquisite farm table was set with a delicate lace runner anchored by delightful flowers that faded from green to yellow to pink. Simple white chargers embossed with a delicate floral pattern were highlighted by gold cutlery, watercolor inspired napkins and paper menu. Gold chiavari chairs were adorned with handmade lace caps to bring a decidedly elegant and chic quality to the setting.

Our invitation suite which included invitations and RSVP cards, seating cards, paper menu, and table number was created using pink, green, and yellow in graceful watercolor strokes that incorporated the metallic gold juxtaposition to the delicate nature of the suite.

Resplendent florals included roses, asters, hydrangeas, orchids and so much more.

The bride donned an empire waisted slim a-line dress with delicate beading around the bodice and a gorgeous rhinestone broach attached to the sash. To complete the look we pulled in a lime green fascinator with a birdcage veil that complemented her red hair and low braided up do perfectly.

Orlando Engagement Session from Kelian Photography

Two things: I now need a zebra umbrella before my life can feel complete and a copy of I Married Adventure with that signature zebra cover. It’s a zebra thing and a way too cute to pass up thing. And this Orlando engagement shot by Kelian Photography has all of that plus a really sweet couple. This twosome clearly shares my love for those black and white striped animals and a love for each other which shines bright in every single one of these images. Have a look here for more.
