WhimsicalVintageRustic Weddings
Running late for a flight isn't exactly what I would call a blessing, but for these two sweeties, there's just no other way to describe it.  That's because their late flights (on the same plane!) resulted in the chance meeting that would forever change their worlds... and the introduction to the one that was "meant to be." Kinda movie-esque, don't you think?  And just wait until you lay your eyes on their beautiful farm wedding, a whimsical meets romantic affair filled with "quirky" details and sooo, sooo much pretty.  See it all captured by the oh-so-talented (+ very sweet) Andi Mans in the full gallery.

From Andi Mans Photography... I have to say that this was one of the most unique weddings I have captured thus far, all for amazing things, of course! I met with Lola and Stephen for coffee a few weeks ago as they were visiting Orlando, both are from Canada and I completely clicked with how genuine and special these two were together!

As always, I ask how my bride and groom met, I love hearing love stories (hopeless romantic)! So, how did they cross paths? Both of these two lovebirds were late on a flight, the same flight… and sat next to each other, I mean… how much of a an awesome story is that?! Let’s talk wedding!

Despite the Florida rain showers that were arriving from the west coast, we didn’t let it affect our moods, I also felt it made the wedding even extra special. Lola wanted a southern wedding with her unique charm and love for Southern Weddings Magazine type details. Stephen, who works in the television industry, wanted to add his touch and personality for little monsters, quirky decor and cinematic retro movie scores. If I had to describe this wedding, it would be the South meets Tim Burton!

The reception was filled with music playing from ET, Disney, circus-style popcorn and a pretty intense imported pickle station! Lola created the programs and many other of the illustrations! Overall, I loved the DIY inspirations that were infused in this wedding. Lola and Stephen were a joy to meet and what a fun time, I laughed so much! One of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes was read as they began the vows, ‘We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
