Romantic Garden Wedding by the Sea

With a garden romance vibe and a view of the ocean, this backyard Florida affair is just what we’d imagine a beautiful seaside wedding to be and it gets bonus points for the amazing vendors that made this day go. From Ozzy Garcia’s gorgeous imagery to pastel blooms a plenty by Divine Design Flowers and design and planning by Beauty In The Making, there’s a ton to pore through in the gallery and in the film by Cool Coconut Studios below.

From The Bride…Anthony and I met through a mutual friend, when we had all signed up for a kickball league in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. At first, I didn’t think he was interested and I was happily single! However , as time went by, we became close friends. That phase didn’t last long… as I got to know him better I could not deny that he was unlike any other man I had ever met. He had so much love to give. He is incredibly genuine and his selflessness struck me to the core. He drowned my greatest fears and took me into his arms higher than anywhere I’ve been before. Never to look back.

From the moment Anthony popped the question, we knew we wanted an intimate, elegant backyard wedding. Inviting our guests to our home felt to be a personal and genuine way to share this significant moment in our lives with the people we love the most.

We turned to a true star, Eileen Morales from Beauty In The Making to design and plan our wedding. Anthony and I knew from the moment we shook hands how lucky we were to have Eileen on our team. Her genuine character, eye for detail, raw talent, and love for LOVE transcended our dream wedding into the ultimate reality. We were fortunate to have the talented film photographer, Ozzy Garcia to capture our most precious moments. Film photography is a dying art that Anthony and I knew would capture our day in an beautiful way. Dmitry of Cool Coconut Studios swept us off our feet with such an awesome wedding film.

My favorite moment of the day was calm before the storm at our First Look on Palm Beach Island. It was a few moments of Anthony and I sharing our vows with each other privately (plus Ozzy and Dmitry in the background shooting away) before we headed down to the Ceremony where celebrated the rest of the evening with our guests.

In the end, there isn’t a single thing I would change about our day, or about the people who truly made our day.

Romantic Winter Park Wedding at Casa Feliz

Let me just start by saying, this gorgeous Bride would fit in the SMP offices so well. I mean, her love for gorgeous blooms, stripes and sparkles? So SMP. Her intimate yet sophisticated wedding beautifully captured by Shannon Lee Miller made us all as giddy as if she as our best friend, and you can see all the reasons why here.

From The Bride…My wedding day was quite a dream and I could’nt wait until the day that I would be able to share it with you. My wedding and reception were held at a historic Winter Park home turned museum in early June. There were about 75 guests made up of family and friends in attendance making the day seem very intimate and full of support from those who are closet to my husband and I. I knew that I wanted my wedding to be extremely sophisticated yet simple, and I achieved this by utilizing the romantic setting of the beautiful Casa Feliz. The classic brick home against the pops of color from the lush landscape created the perfect scene from day to night. We made hand painted signs for all of the food and tables using old picture frames and chalkboard paint, and well as acclectic vintage frames to display pictures aroung the venue. I have always had a love for black and white strips and sparkles( being the girly girl that I am) so I knew that I needed to somehow incorporate both of those into the day. The sequin table runners that I chose were eye catching yet classic, and really popped next to the black and white striped table cloths that were scattered throughout the home. Because I opted for a lot of neutral colors throughout my wedding, I had bright, full bouquets with various shades of pink and coral peonies and garden roses, with pops of bright greens in the bridal bouquet. These colors fit perfectly as center pieces and decoration throughout the house. To accompany the center pieces we used over 100 candles ranging in sizes, each placed within an antique or thrifted candle holder in different shades of gold. On most tables, we were able to find vintage lanterns from different antique stores in both Winter Park and Chattanooga (where the groom is from.) The food was truely amazing and the caterer could not have done a better job. We used Arthurs Catering and chose to do chef stations featuring naything from prime rib and mashed potato bar to grilled shrimp mini tacos with freshly made guacamole. We did small portions of everything so the guests were able to go station to station and try all of the wonderful food options. Overall, It was a magical night that I will never forget, and I hope you, too, can see the charm and love from this special day.

Hutchinson Island Surprise Proposal Shoot

I think we all secretly want to peek in on everyone else’s proposals. It’s our way. So when this beautiful proposal disguised as a styled shoot came across my desk, I was giddy from the first of Sampson Photography’s photos but the goosebumps really hit right when he dropped to one knee. There is so much glee in my heart right now!

From Sampson PhotographyLocal executive chef, Kyle Greene, and his stunning girlfriend Gina Nair are one of our area’s hottest couples. Always dressing with fashion and sophistication in mind, I thought they would enjoy a couple’s photo shoot. We started planning the concept, hoping for a glamour look, brought in stylist Lara Fiorelli of Lara’s Theme and things just took off from there! Kyle called me about 5 days prior to the shoot to fill me in on his plan to propose to Gina DURING the shoot! I was so excited! We were given permission to use the most exquisite home in our area as the setting. Gina and I went back and forth about what kind of dress would look best, jewelry ideas and any props. I tried so hard not to slip up about the proposal! I coached Kyle on his wardrobe, although he really has no problem looking absolutely dashing every minute of the day! Lara was instrumental in all of the props and set up!
