Today will forever be the day that I fell in love with the sweetest vintage wedding, complete with polka dot invitations, a type writer guest book, and a bouquet filled with beautiful blooms and raw cotton. Oh, and just the cutest couple I’ve ever seen. All courtesy of Claudette Montero from Alucinarte Films.


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.
