Google+ Florida Wedding from Clary Photo, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Beautiful scenery and fresh colors and details make Katie + Charlie’s wedding stand out as sophisticated and refined among super-glamorous or super-themed beach weddings. White flowers from The Perfect Settings, a white cake topped with roses and baby’s breath by Thompson Cakes and a fantastic venue (including a porch overlooking the water!) at Limefish made me want to jump into these pictures by Clary Photo so I could party with the newlyweds. Katie + Charlie even had their first dance overlooking the sunset–can it get any better than that?

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Good Southern food! We served chicken New Orleans, garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Our signature drink was a mojito served with a green and white paper straw. Other details included mason jars that were used as flower vases and candle votives, country music, DIY programs and menu cards, and LOTS of raffia!
Describe your wedding cake: It was an all white, three-tiered round Italian crème cake decorated with lemon leaves and flowers. We displayed it on an antique wood table.
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000 to $25,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? The table settings – everything was perfect and just how I imagined.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Our first dance overlooking the ocean at sunset and dancing with my dad to “My Girl.”
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are looking forward to our big move to Georgia from Chicago where I will begin my first job as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.
