We've got Florida envy thanks to this tropical woodland wedding. Steph envisioned a wedding with hints of whimsy and vintage touches, and in our opinion that dream was successfully accomplished! They fell in love with Cauley Square since it embodied all the qualities they were looking for: whimsical, woodsy and romantic. They opted for a warm color palette of wine red, light pink, blush, amethyst and gold to bring out the lush greens of their surroundings.
Everything about this wedding is completely magical. The flowers are so dreamy and the twinkle lights decorating the reception create the perfect atmosphere for a night of romance and festivity! Explore deeper into this day via the full gallery, beautifully photographed by Merari Photography.
You Don't Have To Toast With Champagne, Mix It Up!
From the vendors: Julia Rohde created gorgeous , colorful bouquets and centerpieces to bring together the color palette and added some blooms and small succulents to the gold-flaked two tier cake by Cloud 9 Bakery. Rob and Steph exchanged vows under a beautiful tree and were married by Rob's childhood friend. After the ceremony, guests made their way to the reception area where they found a surprise! Cold Coca Cola bottles on their table settings. The newlyweds wanted to toast with their favorite drink instead of the traditional champagne. After toasts and a paella dinner, Rob, Steph and their guests spent the rest of the night dancing under the stars.
Find Out How These Two Love Birds Met
Rob and Steph met at work. She was the dance teacher and he the music teacher. The arts brought them together and soon they bonded over their love of teaching and good food. For their two year anniversary, they drove to Orlando and after a traditional Blue Man Group show, Rob nervously popped the questions and after a teary "yes!" from Steph, they went to celebrate at Disney World.
A Checklist And Some Confetti Will Be Your Best Friends
From the bride: Having a checklist is so important to keep you from feeling overwhelmed with all the details. I would recommend The Knot's checklist. They have reminders, due dates, as well as vendors and articles to help with just about every detail. Also, don't be afraid to ask a vendor for other wedding vendor suggestions. Most of my vendors were booked because of my photographer's list of suggestions. Finally, RELAX and remember all that matters is that you are getting married to the love of your life. If anything goes wrong, it was meant to be; grab some confetti and let it go!
