Private Vow Reading

From Coastyle Events:
When you meet them and see the way they laugh and play together it is so easy to see why they instantly fell in love. They are truly two of the most beautiful people you will ever meet on the inside and out.

Prior to the ceremony Nick and Erica chose to exchange longer personal written vows during their first look. It was the most intimate and touching moment and set the tone for the emotional and romantic day.

Let Go of Control

You can plan up until the day before, but on the big day let go of control — your only job on the wedding day should be to enjoy it. Yes things will go wrong that day but be able to laugh it of and remember what the celebration is all about — You are marrying the love of your life and all of your loved ones have come out to help share in your joy.

Dancing Drinking & Desserts

My husband and I are not big fans of cake and we have been to so many weddings where we see huge (expensive) cakes going to waste. We thought about the desserts that we would like to enjoy after a night of dancing and drinking and that’s when we decided to have donuts and crumble pies instead

Warm Weather Winter Wedding

white and red cascade bouquet

This Florida warm weather winter wedding inspirational shoot was created to showcase that the feeling of a winter wedding can be done in Florida. It’s not too often that Florida gets really cold temperatures, and certainly rarely snow.

To bring winter to the shoot Swanky I Do’s and an incredible team of Florida wedding vendors incorporated elements that were eclectic, rich in color and a little glam. The color palette included ivory and black stripe, cranberry, emerald and gold. See more in the full gallery here, captured by Vine & Light Photography.

Winter decor interpretation

The venue lends itself to be inspired by the beautiful and not so traditional settings throughout the property. Some of the winter interpretation you will see includes gold antlers, fluffy white area rug (our snow!), a malamute (wolf like dog) and the rich contrast of the cranberry, black and white striped linen against the beautiful farm table. We mixed in vintage seating and stemware to compliment the modernness of the black and white striped linen and gorgeous gold rim glass charger plates. One of the highlights from the shoot was the focus on the floral. No table is truly complete without a beautiful centerpiece design. These gorgeous florals were carried throughout the bouquet and boutonniere that really added a pop of color to each image.
