Scavenger Hunt Proposal from White In Revery

Proposals are my happy place.  I am not kidding… I seriously live for these uber-awesome tales of love and commitment.  And this darling proposal captured perfectly by White in Revery?  It’s almost too amazing to believe with a memory-filled scavenger hunt, the cutest bride and groom-to-be EVER and a stunning baby’s breath-lined ending that will, put simply, take your breath away.  Press play to see every last moment of lovely.

From White in ReveryThis video is a scavenger hunt proposal for the lovely couple, Drew and Allysar! Drew surprised Allysar with a note the morning of the proposal letting her know that the day was going to be very special.

With her friend Shannon by her side, Allysar started on the scavenger hunt. After being sent to a salon for manis, they set off to their first big stop. It was at the very first place the couple had flirted – the Stephen C. O’Connell Center at the University of Florida. Drew left a note there with a hint and a map to the next stop.

He led her to Volta Coffee, a place that he taught her to love something new. She hadn’t really liked coffee until they started dating. After all of the wonderful coffee dates that they’ve had there and all of the great drinks they’ve made her, she’s really grown a love for great coffee.

From there, she was taken to Sarkara Sweets Shop. This is where she taught Drew to love something: desserts! They’ve spent so much time at this sweets shop playing games and getting to know each other.

Her next hint took her to a special park bench in Haile. This is the very first place that Drew said that he loved her.

Her final stop was at a farm that is owned by dear friends of theirs. Drew was waiting for her at the bottom of the hill under a beautiful tree! After a long embrace and many tears, Drew brought her to a small seat and washing bowl to wash her feet. How sweet right?! He wanted to start this new journey off right with an act of service towards her. He then kneeled down and asked Allysar to be his wife! She said yes, of course!

Some fun details…

-The song used in this video is by Drew’s band Hoyle! He is the drummer.
-Everything on the scavenger hunt was filmed as it was happening. We had several GoPros set up at the different shops to make sure that we were capturing her as she was going through the hunt!

Central Florida Engagement Session from Flora + Fauna

Adorable duos are kind of our thing here at SMP.  Adorable duos boasting the sweetest of smiles and a whole lot of l.o.v.e.  And sharing their joyous faces with each and every one of you?  One of our favorite things to do.  So, when we saw these cuter than cute Central Florida sweeties (and their charming e-session), we literally jumped at the chance to feature their stylish selves.  Because what’s better than a nod to vintage lovely all captured by the oh-so-talented Flora + Fauna?  Absolutely nothing.  Click here for all of the pretty.


From Flora + FaunaWe shot this adorable little engagement session in Starke, Florida which is pretty rural. We found the most amazing locations to shoot in! Not to mention, Jodie and Clarence are super adorable!

Fort White Wedding from Dana Goodson Photography

I’m going to say it before you can even think it.  This bride and groom are awesome.  Like marry in their own backyard, DIY every last detail (with the help of the bride’s amazing sister, Kristen Winters of Beehive Creative Events) and shower their invitations, save-the-dates and programs with photos of their adorable pups awesome.  They are that fabulous.  And their wedding?  Well, it’s as crazy cool as you think it would be with a “Time Stops Here” theme and moment after moment of pure happiness captured by Dana Goodson Photography.  Don’t miss a minute in the full gallery.

From Dana Goodson PhotographyIan and Barrett were married in their backyard at the home on the Santa Fe River in Fort White, Florida. The property has beautiful, tall, mossy oaks, to which they attached an eclectic mix of clocks. With the exception of me and the DJ, all other components of the day were designed by the couple and executed by themselves and their closest family and friends. It had a very personal touch. This was a DIY wedding all the way, and I loved the simplicity and raw emotion of the day. 

From the Groom… My wife’s sister, Kristen Winters (her business is Beehive Creative Events), helped the most with the planning process and setting up for our wedding day. She hired the DJ, Justin Nelson of AJ Entertainment, planned the Southern style menu (a family friend made the most amazing ribs and BBQ chicken, and Kristen and Barrett’s mom, Georgia Smith, made all of the sides), arranged the bouquets, managed the day-of setup, and much, much more.

The inspiration for our wedding was time. You only live once, so the time we spend living and loving is precious. The theme was “Time Stops Here.” We wanted to feel like time didn’t exist for this one special day. We hung up old clocks on the trees in our backyard, where we held the service and reception. We also were inspired by our dogs, who continually love us and take the tension out of our day-to-day lives. They have helped our relationship to grow and prosper, so it was only natural they should be in the limelight along with us. Their faces adorned our save-the-dates, invitations and thank-you cards. They were also ushered down the aisle by one of our close friends. Our favorite thing about the wedding was the location. We loved having the wedding at the same place that we met and shared our first summer together, as well as the place we just moved into and will spend the rest of our days in. It was where we got to know and love each other. The day was beautiful, and the majestic trees that surrounded us made us feel exceptionally connected with our surroundings, as well as our friends and family who shared our special day with us.
