Citrus-Infused Florida Wedding

My city currently looks like the inside of a snowglobe, so to say this sunny Florida wedding came at the perfect time is a total understatement. Infused with pops of citrus, it’s a much-needed dose of Vitamin C and Jacqui Cole Photography + Voila Cinematic are to thank for the capturing every bit.

Whimsical

From the couple… On a brisk February morning, just 8 months after their first date, Perry took Lindsay to a spot they’d visited a few times on weekend trips to Boca Grande. With prior arrangements and adventure in his voice, he led her to the top of the Boca Grande Lighthouse, overlooking the Boca Grande Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. Insisting she go before him like any other time, Lindsay stepped onto the catwalk first. When she turned around from taking in the view, Perry was down on one knee, topping all adventures they had shared together.

In agreement that a long engagement was not a priority, wedding plans commenced immediately. It was also a no-brainer that the affair would take place at the historic Gasparilla Inn, a place Lindsay had loved all her life.

Since we come from Florida families deeply rooted in agriculture, to incorporate some of these elements seemed only appropriate. My goal was to fuse Florida’s ‘woods and water’ in complete southern elegance and knew a citrus botanical would be the perfect element to compliment the Inn and its tropical locale and strongly nod to our Florida heritage. We incorporated the citrus from start to finish: from our save the dates to our cocktail stirrers. It’s something we wanted to stand strong, like our families who’ve long stuck with Florida’s citrus industry despite its ongoing hardships.

And like any true southerner, I adore a good monogram. In most of our details, I coupled the two to strengthen the personalization. I chose soft, muted colors for these details. I wanted the colors to reflect the island while keeping in mind we’d marry in October. I went a step further: Perry’s and my favorite colors are peach and green and these became our primary colors for everything.

Sharing college experiences with Old South traditions (Nashville, TN & Oxford, MS) sparks our love for a formal affair but we also feel nothing beats a down-home good time. For this, I aimed to create an elegant, yet laid-back atmosphere, which was a bit of a challenge. Customized corn hole boards and lounge seating on the lawn for cocktail hour were perfect additions for this relaxed vibe.

My favorite moments were our first look and our first dance. Our first look allowed Perry and I to have an intimate moment and really take in the magnitude of the day before being surrounded by family and friends. It also relieved so much angst, letting us relax and be fully present during our ceremony. Not to mention the time it saved by getting those one-on-one bride and groom shots out of the way so we could enjoy cocktail hour with our family and friends. It was during our first dance when I realized for the first time that I was his wife; that we would have each other forever. Being in his arms in that moment was the best feeling.

Fall Hard for this Fall Fete

I have always thought that Fall was the most romantic season to tie the knot. The colors, the textures, the cozy factor that seems to find its way into every last detail. But I sort of think that this absolutely adorable couple would have been just as adorable across any season, any setting – sprinkling little tidbits of pure romance throughout their entire day…from beginning to the beautiful end. With photos by Amalie Orrange Photography, a design by Sweet Pea Events and florals by Cloud 9 Wedding Flowers, this wedding is the reason that my job is so stinking easy. Click here for more!

From Amalie Orrange PhotographyKevin and Melissa were married in October at the beautiful Casa Feliz historic home in Winter Park. With fall shades of cranberry and wine and fun pumpkin details they had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony with 50 of their closest friends and family.

Kevin and Melissa met when they were working in neighboring research labs in Pittsburgh, PA. They actually went to the same high school but never met until a few years after high school. Kevin proposed to Melissa on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, FL the weekend that she graduated from physician assistant school.

Kevin and Melissa said what inspired their vision for their wedding was that they both grew up in the northeast and fall is their favorite season. Fall vibes is really what inspired Melissa’s vision since we don’t get a whole lot of seasonal change in Florida, she really wanted to bring a fall feel to their wedding through our colors and decor. Melissa’s favorite design element of their wedding was the pumpkins! They liked being able to take a traditional symbol of the fall season and put an elegant twist on them by using white pumpkins in their table decor and gold ones for place card holders. Their wedding programs and wooden initials were DIY.

Melissa and Kevin were so happy to have done a first look. And Melissa’s favorite moment was just before Kevin turned around to see her. She said “I was standing behind him and I could tell he was really excited. I just wanted that moment to last forever! We decided to see each other before the ceremony because we wanted a private moment to take it all in together. Also, my most memorable moment of the day was our private last dance. We did a last dance with our guests and then after our guests left we did one last dance alone on the dance floor. The whole evening was such a whirlwind so it was so nice to take two minutes alone just the two of us!”
