This Bride and I are of the same mindset. Because for her, it all began with finding the dress. A dreamy vision laced with vintage details, she found the perfect gown and married her handsome groom on a day decorated with romance. Graced with light colored bouquets and pretty pops of color, this darling destination fete from the lens of Laura Leslie is filled with loveliness.
From the beautiful Bride… When I began planning my wedding I was so excited to find a dress. I knew that I wanted something romantic with a vintage inspired look, something different. I also knew I was going to have a bit of a hard time finding what I wanted. I searched at my local wedding boutiques, looked at all the usual wedding designers. I was exhausted and disappointed because I could not find what I really wanted. And then I came upon Chaviano Couture’s website. I screamed from excitement and showed my Maid of Honor the dress I had focused on. She agreed that that it was perfect. I wasted no time and reached out to Annette. It was the best decision I made. My dress was a complete dream!
We wanted a romantic look so we knew we wanted the bouquet to have light colored flowers with a pop of color. We opted for peonies, roses, waxflowers, tuberoses in peach, pink and ivory. We also included scabiosa pods, dusty millers and some dark blue berries to give it that pop of color.
The cake was a 3 tiered almond amaretto cake with a raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. We decided to have our florist put flowers cascading down the front of the cake as decor.
We live in Miami, Florida and our wedding was in Athens, Georgia so planning a wedding a state away was a bit tricky but we pulled it off!
