the Perfect Day
From Ashely Jane Photography: At the beautiful 44-acre Bellemoor Plantation, Sean and Taylor enjoyed the wonders of an outdoor wedding and were surrounded by the natural Florida scenery on their wedding day. Taylor was gorgeous in her 20’s inspired bohemian styled ivory lace Yolan Cris dress. The halter neck and flare of fringe radiated a fun and romantic Gatsby energy.
Their ceremony was under a clear frame tent under the sprawling oak trees of Bellemoor Plantation. During their portraits we captured their excitement for the day and love for each other at a variety of charmingly lush locations.
From the Bride: We did our best to make it as personal as we could; we wrote our own vows, had my BFF's vintage rental company do the decor, did signature drinks based off of a favorite of each of ours, brought in catering by one of my favorite restaurants in my hometown. All the personal details make everything so much more sentimental.
Take A Deep Breath & Say "I Do"
From the Bride: Let it go. After you pay attention to all of those details, as a bride, you want to be sure it all comes together the way you have been planning and imaging. Well, like everyone says, everything does not always go as planned! No matter what your Big Day will still be perfect just stay positive and let it go.
From Ashley Jane Photography: The reception took place under a white pole style tent. The tables were draped with champagne silk linens and topped with berry toned floral arrangements. Taylor incorporated lots of brass, mercury glass, and candle sticks as additional décor on the tables and in the lounge area. The candle sticks added pops of gold and black. The reception décor was envisioned and created by Taylor and her best friend.
Taylor was excited to share her love of collecting matchboxes with her guests by placing a personalized box at each place setting.
A few bumps in the road
From the Bride: I didn't have a wedding planner and every idea I had in my head going into wedding week had to be changed due to weather. Whatever you do, please get a wedding coordinator. Trust me. I speak from experience. If you don't, "Week of frantic" is on a totally different level than it has to be!
Because of the weather, our vendors had to delay coming to the venue, decor was blowing away tables were getting wet and everything was being directed by my Mom and a handful of friends. As you see in the pictures it turned out to be one of the most beautiful days, but leading up to it was nothing short of a stroke for all those involved in making sure it was a perfect day.
The video above, filmed by Unveiling Media is a beautiful capture of their day, take a peek!
