Vintage Glam Florida Wedding

I love a wedding that thinks outside the typical design box. A wedding that embraces the eclectic and can pull off both "vintage" and "modern" in one fell swoop. It's the kind of thing that happens when both bride and bridesmaid work with Peplum Event And Design, and thanks to the beautiful work of Michelle March we've got our hands on every last bit. Go ahead and get lost in the gallery right here.

From the Bride.... I think back at our wedding and I still can't believe all of this was for John and I! What made the wedding so special was that we stayed true to who we are and what we represent, fun loving people who just love to create and inspire. Our wedding was the true essence of creativity and fun.

Thinking back to the planning process, the details meant everything to us. Starting from the venue to the invitations, to the paper tassels and especially our fringed walled! Most of the details were handmade and I wouldn't have been able to do it without my planner/bridesmaid/designer, Jelli from Peplum Events & Design. She really executed our vision flawlessly! The classic black and white details mixed in with touches of gold and bright colors were very aesthetically pleasing. We wanted our guests to feel like they were in a cottage somewhere in Europe while having fun celebrating with us!

There were some very unique details that reflected our personalities, such as having guests sign a bass drum because John is a drummer and lots of paper details since I am a lover of paper and own my own paper design business, Lalita Paperie & Designs. I have no regrets and would encourage all brides to really think outside the box and let this day be a reflection of your personalities. We were blessed in so many ways and our vendors were truly the best of the best!

From the planner, Jelli of Peplum Events... It was extra special being able to plan and design this fantastic wedding for two very important people in my life. It was an honor to do all of that while also standing by the bride's side while she married the man of her dreams.

Usually, Laudys and I work together to make other brides' wedding dreams come to life as she is a part of Peplum's creative team, but this time she was the client. Although we worked countless nights together to create all of the beautiful handmade details and plan her dream wedding, she was able to enjoy her bride moment on the day of her wedding and my team was able to execute everything flawlessly.

I understood their vision and it was fun to be able to curate the entire event because they are a fun couple and the wedding was a true reflection of their personalities. I never thought I would be able to play both roles, but the team of vendors we worked with were really the best and this amazing wedding would have not been such a success without any of them. Seeing their smiling faces in a place so full of love was really the most memorable moment for me as their planner and bridesmaid. It was so heart-warming to know that I had something to do with that moment of happiness and to have been in the presence of true love.
