Google+ Real Florida Wedding: Ali + Mook, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Though an impending thunderstorm turned Ali + Mook’s Florida nuptials into a swift four-minute ceremony, the newlyweds had no trouble drawing out their elegant Kampong Gardens reception into an all-night affair. Lucky for us – and especially for you, dear reader – A + M’s speedy “I do” didn’t prevent Belathée Photography from snapping every last gorgeous detail. Cynthia Seaman of Lasso the Moon not only planned the rose-gold affair but also baked the couple’s chic coconut cake. After seeing the lush peony blooms (Emily’s favorite!), it’s no surprise the statuesque bride insisted florist Kathryn Parrish was her favorite vendor.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? As soon as the ceremony began at our beautiful garden venue, the sky turned black, the wind started to blow and it started to drizzle. I thought it was going to pour so I Instinctively asked the judge to fast forward and get to the part about the ring exchange. The guests started laughing hysterically, and our ceremony ended up being four minutes long. It was short and sweet, and a funny start to a great evening.
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We exchanged traditional vows.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We’re enjoying life in Palm Beach and the birth of our baby boy this April.

      Hi Juliet! Ali’s necklace came from J. Crew Bridal. Hope that helps!
