Just because the temperature doesn’t dip too low in Florida, doesn’t mean you can’t infuse your fall wedding with hints of autumn. A pumpkin here, a bit o’ hay there, is exactly what this beautiful bride envisioned as she drove up to the adorable Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast. And just like they say, all the details fell into place after that. Concept Photography captured the day to perfection and you can click here for even more.

From the Bride… My goal was to have our wedding be classy and unique but still laid-back and fun. I loved the idea of having some fall elements (the pumpkins, for example), but I didn’t want to overdo that – especially in Florida where we don’t really have a fall season. I had a day-of planner, who was also my florist: Alexis from 2Birds Events. When we first met, we were shooting ideas back and forth, and I got really excited. I knew she got what I was after. I would HIGHLY recommend her!

One of my friends recommended Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast. I looked at a LOT of venues before I found this one. As soon as my mom and I pulled into the venue, I just needed to know where to sign the contract. This was one of the best decisions with the wedding that we made. We had great vendors too. Our caterer, florist/wedding planner, the owners of the B&B, SG Mobile, officiant and, of course, our photographers were absolutely wonderful, and it all flowed so nicely the day of.

As far as my favorite elements of the wedding, I loved our cake stand (from an oak tree) and the branches for the arch. The flowers were unique and beautiful with pops of color, the pumpkins — I could go on and on. We made the entrance sign, the Mr. & Mrs. on the back of the chairs and the favors: my dad’s “secret” oatmeal cookie recipe. Our wedding card holder was a vintage suitcase that Jason altered. One of our good friends, Brad Casanova, designed our wine box for our ceremony.
