Elegant Orange + Navy Carlouel Yacht Club Wedding

Florida is famed for its sunny disposition, and this colorful wedding, with the Bride and Groom saying “I Do” under live blossoming orange trees, is the perfect example of a Sunshine State affair. Captured beautifully by Jacqui Cole Photography and Voila Cinematic, these yacht club nuptials were nautical with a twist, thanks to the amazing teams behind Tracie Domino Events and A&P Design.

From Jacqui Cole PhotographyMeghan and Ben’s wedding was a joy to capture. Meghan and her ‘maids got ready at her family home in Clearwater. The girls all wore custom monogrammed shirts and toasted to Meghan’s new future! Almost all of Meghan and Ben’s guests had flown in from out of town so they graciously gave everyone a sweet welcome bag, filled with a map of Clearwater beach, hotspots not to miss, sunglasses and custom snacks.

Their whole wedding day had a subtle, yet beautiful Nantucket inspired theme. It all begins with the couples’ custom letterpress invitations by A&P Designs. The team created a beautiful citrus watercolor motif that was elegantly brought to life throughout the day! Tracie Domino Events and MMD executed Meghan’s vision flawlessly. The orange tree motif was brought to life at the alter where Meghan and Ben exchanged their vows under blossoming, real life orange trees!!

There were so many sweet details throughout the reception, including the orange placecards and bold pops of orange and blue. The couple even had pillows made for the cocktail lounge area. Meghan looked absolutely stunning in her Amsale gown and the Florida sunlight streamed through the trees as we took portraits.

Their day was full of unique and wonderful surprises! It was a true joy to capture such incredible memories!

From The Bride…You never know where love will find you. And for us, that statement could not have rang more true. Love found us hard at work. We had known each other for about a year, Shane just starting as an attorney and I as an undergraduate intern at a law firm in Orlando. But it took us a while to actually meet. Over a couple months, my comments to my friend (and future bridesmaid) of the “cute and funny attorney” turned into my reports back of our first dates. Our relationship grew fast from becoming friends into being inseparable. I’m forever grateful for that internship. It taught me much; but more than anything, it brought me to love.

After the proposal, we quickly knew we wanted a timeless and romantic event, and we wanted all our people from all over the world to have an unforgettable weekend in Miami. We gravitated toward neutral colors, lots of candles, and pieces we knew we could look back at 40 years from now and still think were beautiful. Above all, we wanted to get married as close as possible to the ocean. My momma, who is in heaven, loved the ocean. We wanted to be surrounded by her presence and close to a day that celebrates her, too.

Our wonderful planners, JCG Events, helped us in so many ways, but really won with finding our dream venue: The Ritz Carlton Bal Harbour. We loved the neutral colors of the reception room, the book spaces that made it feel like a home, and airy drapes and wood floors. The details were most important to us, and we spent countless hours finding our vendors. Each one of them “got us” and transformed our vision into the most beautiful celebration.

But most importantly, our wedding was absolutely a labor of love. My dad and step-mom ground and packaged coffee from our family’s farm in Colombia as favors for our guests. My maid of honor was the Craft Queen, and brought many of my ideas to life. My Aunt completely grounded and calmed me behind the scenes during the entire wedding process, and Shane and I hand-picked each cocktail hour song and some of the reception music (Backstreet Boys throwbacks being high on the list). As are most events, it’s the moments leading up to it that make it. I’ll never forget the Saturday we all spent as a family packaging welcome baskets of our guests.

On the day of our wedding, not everything went as planned. That hand-picked playlist was forgotten and the Miami weather didn’t cooperate. Our plan B (aka A) was getting married in a room that felt like we were in the clouds and sharing our first dance as Mr. and Mrs. in a candle-filled room under hundreds of twinkling lights. There’s no way I can pick a moment. My groom took my breath away all night, the smile on my dad’s face, all our people in one room singing to the Backstreet Boys at the top of their lungs, it all was truly magical.

From The Bride…I always envisioned our wedding to have sort of an ethereal vibe – something that looked and felt elegant, but still laid back. Carmel was our first trip we took together as a couple and we fell in love with it, so when someone told us about Holman Ranch, we didn’t hesitate to check it out.  It was actually the first place we looked at, and the last — I knew right away it was the place for us.  Everything from the peaceful and private vibe, to the stunning mountain views, to that famous Holman tree…it just felt magical.   It also didn’t hurt that Kyle’s Armenian side of the family came from a long line of grape farmers so it was fitting to get married at a vineyard. 

Natalie Bowen’s flowers blew me away…I knew she was talented but she completely exceeded my expectations.  Everything from my gorgeous, peony-filled bouquet, to each table’s unique arrangement, to the eucalyptus garlands on the chairs and the carriage house doors–she was completely aligned with my vision and knocked it out of the park.    

I know it sounds cheesy and cliché, but our wedding day really felt perfect.   It was the most amazing feeling knowing that our families and closest friends were all there to celebrate with us.  And, thanks to our wedding planner, Simone Lennon and her team, Kyle and I were really able to enjoy the day and soak it all in. It was the best day of our lives…so far.

From Simone Lennon of Simone Lennon EventsAs a couple, Katie and Kyle are laid back and easy going who love stylish design that involves simplicity, sensibility and elegance. Holman Ranch was the perfect venue for them as the space is full of natural beauty, charm and exclusivity.

When it came to designing their affair, we really wanted to create a relaxed day that felt seasonal yet effortlessly beautiful and timeless. With that in mind, we kept things simple yet impactful. Also, Katie was really inspired by whimsical organic, loose and colorful bouquets and floral garlands (which kind of became an unofficial theme to the day).

Our super talented floral designer, Natalie Bowen, designed large, lush Eucalyptus garlands that were featured throughout the entire event. Each garland was different and showcased various pastel colors of Peonies and Garden Roses with tucked in sprigs Lavender and Lilacs. She draped them across our ceremony chair backs, our welcome beverage station and the rustic wooden benches during the dance reception.

For our dinner tablescapes, we decided to keep the design in line with Holman Ranch’s rustic environment so we brought in wooden farms dining tables and cross back wooden chairs. We really wanted the floral to be the star of the design, so we used neutral colored hemstitch linens and ivory ornate china for the dinner reception. Natalie designed stunning colorful arrangements in mismatched copper, glass and gold foiled vessels. Each table had its own unique point of interest which caught guests’ interest as they mingled throughout the reception.

After a farm-to-table three coursed dinner and several heartfelt speeches by loved ones, guests moved on to the dance reception in the Carriage House. Just after sunset, Kyle and Katie cut into their three tiered whimsically ruffled cake and danced the night away to The Wall Street Band. Guests enjoyed coffee and cake while sitting in gorgeous vintage lounges or roasted marshmallows at the s’mores station close by.

From the beautiful Bride… San Luis Obispo was my college town, and it was also the location of Philip and my first true weekend getaway as a couple. When it came time to wedding venue hunt, it was only natural to check out SLO. The first step we took on to La Cuesta Ranch, we knew it was the one, and it was truly the only venue we felt that way about. 360 degree views of rolling hills, a rustic barn housing the dance floor, and serene outdoor ceremony and reception spots. You literally feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere but in reality are a few turns from Downtown SLO and all our favorite spots. La Cuesta Ranch felt like our own little hidden gem.

The wedding itself couldn’t have been more perfect. My husband is a designer by trade and really took on the role of Creative DIY Master during wedding planning. He took all my visions and brought them to life, from the signage to the seating cards. He designed more invitation prototypes than I can count and wouldn’t settle until it was perfect for us. He also mastered the homemade candles for our guests and tried incorporating as many personal touches as possible. His creative work coupled with our floral and event designer equated to pure magic. Rustic barn and vintage props against bright pops of gold and pinks. The entire day felt like a total dream. Instead of a photo booth, we brought the costume props to the dance floor and had our photographer capture everyone in their element there. The pictures and video came out priceless. At the end of the night, we didn’t want it to end so went through our sparkler exit 3 times! My advice to brides is to enjoy every moment with your husband, friends and family. Soak it up and don’t sweat the small stuff. It goes fast!

Springtime Botanical Specimen Wedding Inspiration

Florals are often a main focal point of any wedding, but botanical specimens are something new! This stunning Jody Savage-shot inspiration shoot from Splendid Supply Co. brings florals to the forefront, with some gorgeous blooms from FiftyFlowers, yummy bites from Chowgirls, and a stunning model Bride, whose look was fresh and springy, thanks to Julie Swenson and the team from A And B Bridal.

Whimsical

From Splendid Supply CoOur shoot’s inspiration started with 19th century botanical specimen illustrations and gardens. Instead of opting for a more traditional vintage approach, our team, led by Maddy of Splendid Supply Co., created a contemporary twist by infusing a modern color palette and a whimsical, Anthropologie-like approach to the execution. Photographed by Jody Savage and coordinated by The Simply Elegant Group, this shoot is fresh and perfect inspiration for a late spring or early summer wedding.

Starting with the concept of terrariums pulled from the vintage inspiration, Dani from Studio Fleurette created a lavish display featuring bulk flowers from FiftyFlowers.com. To give it a fresh look, Dani and Maddy designed and overgrown look that incorporated moss, ferns, air plants, and whimsical flower stems. We fleshed out the rest of the concept by continuing the overgrown look to a dessert bar installation that would take guests’ breaths away!

To continue the specimen concept, we incorporated other details that brought the research element forward in well designed, thoughtful way. We included escort cards that were collected seed packets, decorated with library books from On Solid Ground Vintage Rentals in our color palette, and picked up a stunning customized suite from Minted that prominently featured a botanical drawing – what we considered to be a modern update to the traditional specimen print. We even sourced a dress from A and Be Bridal Shop by Truvelle that had layers that reminded us of ruffled petals on a flower.
