Tag: real florida wedding

Megan + Jeremy met on a cruise six years before they said “I do” in Miami, so their nautical wedding was not only a nod to their beachside residence, but to the week they fell in love. Their plan to keep things feeling like “summer fun by the sea” was made possible by tackling wedding planning tasks together and making the day a representation of their personality as a couple. We love how much M + J took their theme to heart — all of these photos by Captured Photography put a smile on my face!

I need both of these shoes for me and my future hubs! I love seeing grooms and groomsmen have fun with their wedding day attire, too, and these are adorable for a nautical wedding.

My bouquet was a mix of red peonies, red roses and a few blackout lilies wrapped in white ribbon. The bridal party had a mix of red roses, red orchids and other red filler flowers wrapped in red and navy ribbon. The reception tables were decorated with galvanized French buckets in two different sizes and they were filled with red roses, peonies and orchids.

When it came to my wedding dress, I knew that I was looking for something from Allure Bridal, but I had no clue what would look good on me. I focused on stores with their dresses and I went to the first shop with my dad. I almost picked the second dress I tried on, but I convinced myself to try a few more. I was so happy I waited! A picture of the dress I really wanted had been saved on my desktop for almost three months, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Finally, at the last boutique I went to, Leggenda Bridal, I found what I was looking for. I gave the consultant my few printed pictures, with my favorite hiding in the back because I honestly didn’t think they would have it. I almost screamed when that was one of the two they had in stock. When I put it on, it was more beautiful than I could have imagined! It was a strapless ball gown with ruching throughout the asymmetrical bodice. Then at the hips it flowed into a caught-up skirt adorned with organza flowers and feathers.

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? Yes, after a few months of convincing, we agreed to do a first look. Jeremy really did not want to see me before the ceremony, but because the wedding was on a Friday night, it didn’t really allow us much time to take pictures. Luckily, we ended up doing a first look because we were able to shoot at a gorgeous site, because it rained so hard before, during and after our ceremony that you couldn’t see the other side of the street, and because it allowed us to be alone, relax and be natural with each other.

Oh, y’all. How beautiful is St. Patrick Church in Miami? The ceremony was Megan’s most memorable moment of the big day. “Our priest preformed such a beautiful ceremony and he made us feel as if we were the only ones in the church. The organ sounded perfect and the lighting was impeccable, but it is the loving and kind spiritual words that our priest spoke that I will never forget.”

Jeremy and I went for a very casual, vintage nautical theme. South Florida was perfect for this! We used local starfish and some vintage buoys to decorate the tables. For our sign-in table, we had two oars that each of our guests signed and our seating chart was a large fish net with place cards pinned throughout. We also kept our food very typical of the area, serving some seafood and some Spanish food. Our goal was to keep everything very South Florida and “summer fun by the sea!”

Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Our wedding cake was amazing! It fit into our nautical theme perfectly. It was four tiers covered with solid navy blue fondant. Artistically placed over each tier was a large white anchor, and crowning the top was a beautiful white sugar flower. On the inside, we chose to have alternating layers of red velvet and coconut flavors. It was delicious! We also had a groom’s cake. It was Miami Marlins-themed with a large logo on the top. It was a single layer of coconut cake and written below it, “Your love is my home run! I love you husband!!”

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. It was 6 years from the day we married that the two of us met on a cruise to Bermuda. We were both traveling with our families and celebrating our summer break. It was more than halfway through the cruise that we crossed paths at a local pub on the island. Jeremy was trying to watch the Miami Heat playoff game and I was nagging him to come and hangout with a group of other travelers at the bar. After a little convincing, he gave in. We hit it off that night and were inseparable until the boat docked. When we disembarked, neither one of us was sure if we would ever see each other again. I was from Saint Louis, MO and he was from North Miami Beach, FL. Not only did we have distance between us, both of us were off to college. Over the next four years, we dated on and off, always turning to each other in tough times. We would fly here or there just to spend a day or two together. Eventually, long distance just wasn’t what we wanted anymore. So I packed up my apartment and moved down to sunny South Florida. I arrived to loving arms and we have been by each other’s side ever since.
Describe the proposal. I was in my room getting ready for a night out and I hear Jeremy yelling for me from the other room. I quickly finish up and head toward our living room. As I walk in, I see him kneeling among the most adorable site I’ve ever seen. He had dressed our two dogs as a bride and groom, each with a sign around their neck. One had the words, “Will you” and the other had “Marry me?” I couldn’t have held back the tears if I had tried.
In what month did you get married? June
How many guests attended your wedding? 125
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? From the Old Testament, “The women who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs 31: 10-13, 19-20, 30-31) and from the New Testament, “God is love” (1 John 4: 7-12).
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. Our first dance song was by Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.”
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We had a small boat made to hold all the beer for the wedding. I was constructed by Unique Designs by the Prevals. It was built with a vintage style and painted in white wash, navy blue and red. We absolutely loved it!
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge was trying not to worry so much. Racking your brain and obsessing over too many details makes planning more painful than fun. I love details, but you need to separate the controllable ones such as colors and favors, from the uncontrollable ones, like how will the tables look, if they will they be set up correctly or if the food will taste good.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Photography was one of the most important things to the both of us. In the end, all you have are your pictures, and we were not about to sacrifice that for anything. Jeremy and I were undeniably grateful to have such a brilliant photographer to share our day with us. Jenny and her assistant Shelly captured every moment of our day without missing one smile, tear, detail or dance move! The pictures that Jenny gave us are priceless.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? The best advice I have is to tackle it together. There is nothing worse than having to take on this huge task one-sided. Delegate tasks, even if they are small or tedious. Also, have fun with it. Pick things you and your partner like, not what you think your guests will like. This day is about you! They are just along for the ride.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Jeremy and I are taking some time to travel and spend time with our families. Then we are both looking forward to expanding our family!

For Gabrielle + Paul, their favorite detail of their wedding was the gorgeous venue, the historic Case Feliz. For the bride, the space created a truly Southern atmosphere, surrounding the party with live oaks and warm sunshine. Not needing to make any additions to the Spanish-style house, G + P relied on the bride’s favorite peonies and flowing gray linens to dress up the outdoor space. We think it did just the trick! Big thanks to Vitalic Photo who shared this with us!

When I went wedding dress shopping, I started at The Collection in Winter Park; they have the most beautiful gowns. I tried on several designers, but I was in love with White by Vera. I felt it was the best fit for my personality and taste. I wanted it to be an intimate experience, so only my mother and my sister went with me to search for the perfect dress. I accessorized with a White by Vera jeweled belt for the ceremony and decided to do something fun for our extravaganza, changing to a big black bow. It was so much fun being able to change my look for the reception.

I decided not to do a “first look” and I’m so glad I didn’t! I wanted Paul to see me for the first time coming down the aisle.

What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The date was challenging since the wedding was on a Friday and we had family and friends traveling from out of town. But, we loved the idea of a Friday the Thirteenth Wedding!
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Photography! I chose the best, and we are so happy we did!

Our cake was not only beautiful, but very romantic, and delicious. I wanted it to match my gown, so I requested that it look like a layer of tulle over the cake, accented with peonies made of sugar. Everyone thought they were real. It was a vanilla cake with strawberry filling and Bavarian cream. Fondant of course.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. Classic love story! We met at a costume party and became friends. We started to see each other on a regular basis and then we really became best friends, fell in love as friends do and, after many years, Paul proposed!
Describe the proposal. I had anticipated a proposal for months, but as time went by, I stopped thinking about it. One day, after a long day at work, I met Paul for a quick dinner and he then insisted we go to the beach for a walk. It was moonlit and pleasant outside — very romantic! Paul let out a sigh and said, “Wow, I’m feeling like I missed an opportunity here.” I then said, “Oh I bet you are wishing you had a ring right now!” I turned away and glanced at the ocean, and as I was turning back, Paul knelt down on one knee. The whole time, I’m thinking, “He is really playing this out!” I was sure he did not have a ring. Well, suddenly he opened a ring box and the most brilliant, gorgeous ring shone. It took my breath away! I don’t remember if I screamed, but I did cry. I think we both had tears of love and excitement. Paul had not planned it this way, but when he received the ring he had been waiting for, spontaneity kicked in. He did not want to wait, and I was very happy he did not.
In what month did you get married? April
How many guests attended your wedding? 105
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? We didn’t have a formal one, but my fabulous big sister and maid of honor Danielle, who I love so much, came to me while I was getting ready and completely surprised me by re-enacting Jennifer Lopez’s speech from the movie “The Wedding Planner.” It was priceless and I’m so glad our videographer was able to capture it. It was meant to be funny but we both ended up in tears.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. I really loved the ceremony music. We chose to have a trio of flute, cello and harp. I walked down the aisle to Canon in D, and walked back up with the wedding party to “Kissing in Rain” from the Great Expectations soundtrack. It was so romantic and climactic! For our first dance, Paul and I chose “I found a reason” by Cat Power. My father and I danced to “Landslide” by Stevie Nicks and it was definitely one of my favorite moments of the night. Paul and his mom chose “I will” by the Beatles.
Describe your wedding flowers: PEONIES, hundreds and hundreds of beautiful pink peonies. I loved my flowers!! They were displayed in fabulous Mercury glass vases.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The whole event! It really was the wedding of my dreams, but I loved the surprise Rolls Royce exit car! I was so involved in all the details, but I had no clue my mom had planned that. We loved cruising around Winter Park after the wedding, it was so much fun. It kept our party going! We were not leaving for our Honeymoon until Sunday, so we had a family and friend brunch on Saturday. It was wonderful to see everyone and delicious too.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Take your time in making choices, and try to outline important details. As the day is drawing near, have a deadline where you draw a line and if it has not been done, let it go. Try to rest and enjoy family as much as possible, it will add to the relaxed feel at your wedding. Most importantly, be present in the moment, as it happens very quickly.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Furnishing our first home together!! We moved in the day we arrived home from our Hawaiian honeymoon. We’re looking forward to traveling!

Maybe it’s my affinity for all things coral-colored, or maybe it’s my unending desire to have a boat party, but Sally + Dave’s wedding just makes me happy. The bright and springy colors are a surprising (but welcome) palette for their winter wedding. But y’all know that here in the South, winter ain’t no thang — especially if you’re celebrating it on the Southernmost part of the United States: Key West. We must give out big hugs to Kat Braman who shared this wedding with us.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: Shortly before we got engaged, my mother moved to Las Vegas. It was important to me that she be there when I try on dresses, so I ended up flying to Vegas. My grandmother, who lives in Southern California, also made the trip. It was so wonderful to have 3 generations there for the experience.
Describe your wedding flowers: We went with the flowers I love that are available in December: roses, calla lilies, and hydrangeas. I hired a florist to make the arrangements that marked our ceremony spot, but for the personal bouquets and reception centerpieces, I bought bulk wholesale flowers. I got my bridesmaids together with a big bucket of ribbons, pins, shears, and tape, and we made our own bouquets. It was important to me that my bridesmaids’ individual personalities came out in the wedding. For the boutonnieres, I had a wonderful Etsy seller custom make them out of vintage maps that she tinted to match my color scheme.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? One of the most memorable moments was when I finally made it down the aisle and a big gust of wind took the veil right out of my hair! If that wasn’t surprising enough, the veil went into one of the tiki torches, singeing a little piece of it. The moment actually broke the serious mood and lightened things up.
Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? No, we didn’t do a first look. Though we are not typically superstitious people, both Dave and I felt that we shouldn’t see each other before the ceremony. Though we knew how practical it is to take pictures before the ceremony, we felt like doing that would somehow diminish the emotion we had when we first saw each other at the ceremony.
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? Yes, we designed our entire ceremony and write our own vows. Dave’s were completely off the cuff, so we don’t have lines from it. I began mine with “for almost 15 years I’ve watched you become the man I’m so proud to be marrying.” I also included one of our favorite Star Trek quotes from Spock (Yes, we are Trekkies!), “I have been, and always shall be, your friend.”

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We actually met when I was in high school and Dave had just graduated. We went to different high schools, but were introduced by a mutual friend with whom I was on the cheerleading squad. We had instant chemistry and started dating almost immediately, but after I graduated and went away to college, we spent several years apart. We reunited in 2007 when Dave asked me out over Facebook, and it was like we had never been apart.
Describe the proposal. We traveled to Roanoke, Virginia, to visit some friends for New Year’s Eve. I had an inkling that it would happen during this trip so I took extra care to look great for our New Year’s Eve dinner and other events. The proposal didn’t happen that night, but I forgot all about it as we were having such a good time. The next evening, our friends took us sightseeing to Mill Mountain, which has a large, illuminated star near the top. Since we were on our way to watch a hockey game, I was in my Capitals hockey jersey, totally unsuspecting, but Dave proposed to me right there under the star.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Joyous, relaxed and colorful.
In what month did you get married? December
How many guests attended your wedding? 44
Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Since we were having a reception on the water, I thought cupcakes would be the best bet. We had three different flavors of cupcakes, all iced in white buttercream so that I could embellish them with fun details. I found cute wrappers online and used my die-cutter, glue gun, and lollypop sticks to create the toppers. We also had a small cake so that Dave and I would have something to cut.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge was striking a balance, both in planning and spending. First, it was difficult to balance my budget with my imagination. I found out quickly that there are many more expenses involved than I ever imagined. The many wedding blogs and sites internet were a huge inspiration and help to me, and I was able to figure out how to DIY some things while splurging on others. Second, striking the balance of pleasing guests while following our own vision was, by far, the hardest part of the wedding planning. We ultimately overcame this issue by making sure that the guests would have a great time despite some of the trade-offs that we insisted on (like no kids – not great for a boat reception!).
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Photography!!!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Make lots of lists! I made excel spreadsheets to track our expenses, guest lists, and the like. There are so many online tools now to take advantage of, like wedding websites that let guests RSVP online, which we loved. Also, I really feel that both parties should be involved; if the groom doesn’t want to take on tasks himself, you should at least have regular discussions where you update him on the major decisions you’re making. Even though grooms may be uninterested during planning, they will be expected to be a key participant in all the wedding events and trust me, you will both have a much better time if he knows what to expect and has been given opportunities to participate in decisions. I did most of our planning, but I was able to give Dave some discrete, simple tasks, like setting up transportation for our guests, getting rental cars, etc.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We actually moved three hours away from our old home in Northern Virginia to Roanoke, just a month after the wedding. It was a hectic time, but we went from a small condo to a house with a yard, and now I can see the mountain and star where Dave proposed every day.
