Have a first-hand peek at so much more from Merari in the gallery.

From JCG Events… Lauren and Michael wanted to have a wedding that reflected them both as a couple and also highlighted some of the most gorgeous unseen parts of Miami since most of their guests were traveling to Miami as a destination. They hosted their wedding at the beautiful Kampong Botanical Gardens, a hidden gem nestled in the luscious landscape of Coconut Grove, Florida. Lauren had fallen in love with the willow tree on property and that is where we set-up the willow branch chuppah filled with the most amazing garden style blooms with a crystal chandelier hung from the tree.

Guests were welcomed to a refreshing peach sangria and a cocktail hour to make any foodie’s heart swoon with a raw bar in an oversized canoe and passed hor d’oeuvres that included chicken and waffles served in mini cast iron skillets. After the memorable cocktail reception, guests were invited to take their seats at the beautiful reception filled with floral and greenery chandeliers and centerpieces that overflowed the tables. Traditional escort cards were replaced by hot pink geodes that were hand calligraphed with guests’ names and table numbers.

Everyone danced the night away and at the end were treated to Shake Shack burgers as a nod to Lauren’s New York heritage. The party continued back at the Al Capone suite at the luxury 1920’s Biltmore Hotel. Luckily for guests the welcome bags had included the cutest recovery kits that tied in Michael’s profession as a doctor all crafted and put together by Lauren, the bride.

Farm

From Rebecca Read PhotographyA collaboration of Central Florida wedding vendors gathered to honor the sunshine we all love. This styled shoot is a tribute to the local orange groves we all grew up with and hopes to inspire Florida brides to celebrate these seasonal specialties.

Nave Event & Floral Design gathered a ton, truly a ton, of oranges and citrus from their local grove, Harvey’s Groves, to design this shoot. By mixing in the local favorite, they designed a styled Farmhouse bar, ceremony decor and fun details. What bride wouldn’t love the sweet smell of citrus on a beautifully manicured Florida farm?

The bride is wearing the Adelaide by Watters from The Sample Room in Melbourne, FL.

Organic Bohemian Florida Wedding

A sure sign that this couple has great style? The fact that custom designed nearly every detail of their wedding – dress, rings and farmhouse reception tables included. All true to their organic, boho, fuss-free vision, they crafted a bespoke affair that’ll have every non-traditional bride jumping straight out of her seat. Violets In Bloom came alongside to provide beautiful blooms for the occasion and Kati Rosado captured it all behind the lens.

From Kati Rosado PhotographyThis small but stylish wedding is sure to leave your jaw to the floor and hearts in your eyes. Just about every detail (including Taylor’s dress and the rings) were custom designed by the bride and groom. They both have impeccable style and knew exactly what they wanted on their wedding day. Surrounded by just their closest friends and family, Taylor and Chris tied the knot at a private residence in Melbourne, Florida.

Along with Taylor’s father, they handmade every one of these wood farmhouse tables out of scrap palettes. Taylor collected china from antique stores and her bridesmaids inserted trick candles into every one of the candlesticks to make sure they didn’t blow out in case it was windy. Every detail was cohesive, impeccably styled, and truly filled with love.

From the Bride… We wanted to get married in West Palm Beach. Ralston grew up here and I moved to this area about 5 years ago for school. I just felt in love with this city. West Palm Beach has amazing beaches, stunning inter-coastal skylines, and beautiful palm trees. We live where people come to have destination weddings. Plus, this is where I met Ralston. West Palm Beach is a special place to Ralston and I. I could not imagine getting married anywhere else.

We wanted to get married in front of God so we picked Holy Trinity Episcopal church. The church is perfect size for our 120 guests. It also had the traditional church feeling that we were looking. We also loved the Father Wilt. During our wedding counseling sessions, he really tried to get to know us and we got to know him too. Father wilt was able to make our wedding ceremony very personalized and special.

Breakers is one of the most beautiful place we ever been to. Walking into The Breakers is like walking into one of the palaces in Europe. As soon as we walked into the circle room in The Breakers, we knew this was it. It had the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and a high ceiling with amazing artwork and a stunning chandelier. We didn’t have to look anywhere else. The church organist played ceremony music. He played the organ while guests were sitting. He played “Ave Maria” for the sitting of mother. Processional song was Prince of Denmark’s march by Clark. Recessional song was “Hompipe” by Handel.

Ralston is such a thoughtful person. We had a wedding gift exchange before the ceremony. When I was opening up the wedding gift sent to me by Ralston, there was a letter starting with “ Good morning my beautiful bride,” and I just lost it. I was sobbing. I almost ruined my makeup that took 2 hours! Ralston gave me a lock with our initials and our wedding date engraved. He special ordered this for us so we can lock it in the Love Bridge in Paris on our honeymoon. He also gave me a Cartier watch as a wedding gift too. His wedding band actually matches my watchband!

From Andi Diamond PhotographyMegan and Charles first noticed each other on their college campus, Florida Southern College, in the spring of 2009. They didn’t officially connect until coincidentally working together at the same job. Both being country born and raised, they had an instant connection with their love of nature and the outdoors.

Charles’ family owns the beautiful Rocking H Ranch in lakeland Florida, where throughout the years he has become extremely knowledgeable of cattle/farm life (and even built a house on the property with his own hands for him and Megan!). The garden inspiration for their reception came from Megan’s love for plants and gardening. Due to their love of nature, the details of their wedding were also inspired by the great outdoors, with colors of sage green, white, khaki, and earth tones. Other small figures included birds, nests and eggs, moss, teacups, hydrangeas, roses, and all of the antiques that are displayed throughout the barn. Charles’ mother worked closely with the wedding coordinator to help bring together their vision of an organic inspired, country-chic affair. Megan’s bouquet was made from flowers of her choosing, but Charles’ mother put it together so Megan would have the extra touch of her bouquet being made by her mother-in-law. She added a special touch by putting a few stems of floral from her own garden in it, as a surprise to Megan. Guests dined on BBQ and were given little pre-made bags of s’mores ingredients to use outside at the bonfire and also nibbled on cake (the groom’s cake was inspired from the movie Steel Magnolias!).

From the Groom…Our first date was at Starbucks. Megan had asked me if I would like to meet her for some coffee. We ended up talking for the next 6 hours, until Megan explained that she had to be home before curfew (she was 22 at the time).

All my previous relationships lasted anywhere from a year to a year and half. After I had been with Megan for two years, I realized that I was hooked. I didn’t have to go out of my way to be something I wasn’t for someone else. I wasn’t tired of her, and she didn’t get on my nerves. Megan loved me for who I was. She had become my best friend. That’s when I knew she was “The One.”

After we had been dating for three years, I decided that I was ready to propose to Megan. So I planned an extended weekend trip up to New York City. We Stayed at the Helmsley on Central Park. It was a perfect little Vacation. I had her ring in my pocket the whole time. I didn’t have a plan, I was just winging it. I thought I’d like to get her alone and propose to her in Central Park. The problem with that was that we were in NYC with over 3 million other people. We took a long walk in the park, and by this time it was close to midnight. The moment finally presented itself on a quite lake in the park. It was the perfect location, it’s a night I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

 It meant a lot to me to get married at the Ranch. To me it just seems that’s the way it’s supposed to be. It’s my family’s property. It’s home. This is where we belong. It’s where I wanted us to begin our lives together.

Spring Inspired Coastal Nuptials

From Debra Eby PhotographySpringtime on the coast is one of ethereal beauty. Sunlight and fog fade in and out over the folding waves. The contrast of bright spring florals against the light blues and whites of a coastline make for a tropical sort of magic. This is the vision of our team. Our palette is a Florida springtime celebrated on the white sands of Ponce Inlet.

Ranunculus and dahlias dance in raspberry and blush hues. Setting the ceremony stage is the archway. The perfect accent piece set to the white dunes of the coastline. Geometric spheres accent the aisle. Surrounding both pieces are gold brushed candle holders. The bridal bouquet is abundant with rich hues, delicately accented with pastel ribbons. Shauna creates magic with her floral collections.

The tablescape is one of simple romance. The floral centerpiece possesses a timeless elegance, wild and wandering on a farm table. We love the way tulle billows in the warm breezes. This is our simple textile covering a wooden farm table. Plateware with glass and gilded accents add a touch of sparkle in the sunlight.

Oh, that cake, it bursts with springtime blooms, meticulously paired to the blossoms of the bouquet. The gorgeous grey texture mimics the design of the bridal gown.

The Norvège Bridal Crown graces the head of our bride. Fabiola designed this while inspired by the beauty of the land of the midnight sun. This stunning bridal crown is entirely hand wired with over 200 floral glass beads. Marolsha’s custom earrings have lots of sparkle. They couple with the bridal crown for that ethereal springtime feeling.

The invitation suite is spring itself. Watercolor flowers, leaf patterns, and lovely lettering set the stage for these springtime nuptials. Escort cards are hand tied around vintage glass vases of florals. This doubles as a favor for arriving guests.

Flower girls play hand-in-hand on the sand in blush tulle gowns. Celebrating the wedding with custom floral wands and headpieces.

As the sun sets, our bride wears cathedral length floral veiling. Our headpiece designer, Fabiola, designed the veiling and attached Shauna’s beautiful white flowers.

Our models are not faking romance! They are a real engaged couple planning their own 2016 wedding. Their love is apparent as they cozy up on the shoreline. It is spring, after all, love is in full bloom.
