Winter Park Wedding from Kristen Weaver Photography

Soft peach and coral hues, the pretties touches of lace, loads of southern charm – this Florida fête from Kristen Weaver Photography is overflowing with details that have me head over heels in love. Sprinkle in the gorgeous florals from Lee Forrest Design, and it simply doesn’t get lovelier. Except, of course, when you factor in the breathtaking Bride and her dashing Groom…and that’s when we enter stunning territory. See it all here.

From Kristen Weaver Photography…Emily and Joey are the epitome of Southern charm in every sense of the word! Their wedding was a mix of lace, soft peach and pops of coral. Emily chose all prepster-staple JCrew jewelry to compliment her Jim Hjelm gown, and gifted the bridesmaids stunning Kate Spade earrings with a peach center stone. Hand-crafted stationary made the bridesmaids cards and escort cards. But the highlight was her stunning bouquet, made by Lee Forrest, that mixed beautiful roses, garden roses, peonies and dusty miller to create the centerpiece of this Southern event! The ceremony took place outside the historic Casa Feliz home in Winter Park, and their reception was set up in the courtyard under market lights and centerpieces in vintage vases.

Winter Park Wedding from Amalie Orrange + Blush by Brandee Gaar

Perfectly subtle and perfectly southern, this beaut from Amalie Orrange Photography is going to make your Monday feel beyond fabulous. It’s a wedding that will stand the test of time, and from the looks of these two lovebirds, its a love story that will too. So grab another cup of coffee, and join me in starting this week off right in this gallery filled to the brim with gorgeous.

From Amalie Orrange… Abby & Nick had a gorgeous wedding, from the champagne and charcoal details, to the beautiful sunny day that make Florida so famous. Abby found me via Style Me Pretty and we hit it off from the start. She has such great classic style and wanted that to come across in all of the details in their wedding. Abby & Nick’s monogram appeared throughout the entire wedding from the programs, guest gift boxes and the bridesmaids monogramed “getting ready shirts”. 

From the Bride… We met in Tallahassee, FL while we were both second year law students. Nick, a die-hard gator fan and UF alum, transferred to FSU law after a year at Ole Miss. His best friend and fraternity brother was in my first year law school class and told me I needed to meet his friend who was transferring. Jokingly, I said, if he’s an obnoxious Gator like you, this Seminole fan is not interested. Little did I know, he talked me up that entire summer and we all hung out as friends once Nick arrived in Tallahassee. Our first date was October 24, 2008. I guess you can say, the rest is history.

Nick and I both now live in Jacksonville, FL. After a year or so of renting a house with a group of guys, Nick was bit by the “house buying” bug. I would walk through houses with him and comment on design ideas, etc. At this point, we both knew that any house would one day become our home together. Fast forward to actually buying a cute, 1960′s red brick house in Jacksonville. After getting keys to the house, but before moving anything in, amidst drop cloths and paint cans in an empty living room, Nick got down on one knee, said that he wanted to start our life together there in that house.

Winter Park Wedding by At Last Wedding + Event Design

What do you get when you combine fab Parisian-inspired details with a downright amazing rustic flare? Pure wedding perfection – and this Winter Park affair by At Last Wedding + Event Design is serious proof that it all comes together magnificently.  From the tree-filled ceremony overlooking the beautiful waters of Lake Osceola to the lovely pink hues, it’s a pretty fest like you’ve never seen.  Add to that some beautiful images by Studio222 Photography and, well.  Happy, happy Thursday.  See it all here.

From At Last Wedding + Event DesignNicole and JJ desired a soft, Parisian-influenced wedding with hints of a rustic feel. Their ceremony and reception venues were the absolute perfect locations for their vision, and everything came together without a hitch. The couple exchanged vows on the lawn of the Polasek Museum in front of a large, mossy tree and lake. Rather than the typical setting of chairs for a wedding, we designed the space in the shape of two semi-circles, giving the guests a much more intimate setting. Plus, the ceremony was performed by JJ’s father, which made it that much more special for the pair. The reception was nothing short of a party, and all of the guests had an absolutely fantastic time — especially the flower girl, who could be found crowd surfing on the dance floor!
