With eclectic style and whimsical details, this garden wedding captured by Jen Disney Photography is full of color, fun, and so much happiness! From food trucks and smores, to “light sabers” in boutonnières, Stefanie and Will’s shared loves of Star Wars, food, and family were embodied perfectly all throughout their wedding day . Stefanie is here with us today, sharing her wedding planning insights and experience…

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

So many people helped during the planning process. My maid of honor helped me come up with a lot of the ideas and then she and other friends helped me pull them off. The day of the wedding the venue coordinator and day of coordinator worked together to pull off the wedding; they were invaluable.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

I wanted people who were supportive, positive, fun, and knew their stuff. All of our vendors did a great job. Our photographer, Jen Disney, fit all those qualifications and more. Her energy, warmth and positivity made us feel like we were hanging out with a friend. Getting married felt surreal especially since we had spent months planning for the day. And Jen helped us feel at ease and have a wonderful time.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I was not the kind of girl who had dreamed of her wedding all her life, so I was a bit at a loss as to what I wanted. After I got engaged, I could only tell people that I wanted twinkly lights, which I ended up getting. The venue helped guide the inspiration as it was a beautiful, outdoor garden setting. Also, we wanted our wedding to be a time and place where our friends and family would have fun while supporting us.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing? I can only pick one?!? If I had to narrow it down to one thing I would have to say it was feeling the love and support of everyone there. It was a beautiful and wonderful day, and it was so special to be surrounding by the people who love us.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Figure out what works for you. It is different for everyone and people will tell you that their way is the best. But you really have to figure out how you and your fiancé want to do things. Also, try to keep things in perspective and surround yourself with positive and supportive people. Wedding planning is stressful but you will make it!

Aw, I love Stefanie’s advice! And did you catch the adorable Star Wars details throughout the day? Like using glow sticks instead of sparklers for a reception exit… the closest thing to real life sabers, right? Oh, and can we please talk about how adorable these two are?!

You won’t be able to help but fall in love with this couple and their gorgeous yacht club wedding. Jake and Amanda’s love story is certainly one for the books- Amanda, a news anchor, was sent to cover the story of soldiers returning home from deployment… one of whom was an Army Ranger named Jake, and I suppose you can say the rest is history! Lucky for us, Hunter Ryan Photo captured this outstanding couple’s wedding day, and we get the honor of reliving it along with them!

When this red, white, and blue rehearsal dinner landed in my inbox, I just knew I had to share it with you all! After all, we are just a few days away from July 4th, and I can’t think of any other way to celebrate than with the fabulous design and bold colors of this couple’s July 4th themed rehearsal dinner! Typically couples tend to stray away from holiday weekends when it comes to getting married, but these two embraced it- and I’m so glad they did! Alante Photography captured the handiwork of wedding planner Aisle of View wonderfully, and you won’t be able to do anything but smile (and want to celebrate) when you see this bold and beautiful rehearsal dinner!

Isn’t it all SO fun?! That’s what a rehearsal dinner is all about- fun and celebration! Having just recently designed my brother’s rehearsal dinner, I also realized that there isn’t too much inspiration out there for this integral wedding weekend event, so I’m of course more than happy to be sharing this and inspiring you all!

So tell me- would you consider a special theme like this for your rehearsal dinner? Or even your wedding?

Marjory and Keith chose the beautiful waterside location of Boca Grande’s Gasparilla Inn Beach Club for their nautical navy, pink and white wedding. Wanting a day with a casual yet romantic tone, it was the perfect option for this water loving couple! Lucky for us, one of our favorites, Concept Photography, was there to capture all of the beautiful moments, details, and scenery!

What inspired your vision for the wedding?

We both grew up being on the water, fishing and boating. We knew we wanted a more casual feel to our special day but still having those romantic elements. We choose the location of Boca Grande because my family has a condo there and it has always been a second home to me. Our vision was something of a nautical look, incorporating the colors navy and white while showcasing the beauty of the island and the water.

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

One of our most memorable moments was while Keith and I were lighting our unity candle. Just seeing all the family and friends we love that came from near and far to share this day with us was very special. Another memorable moment for us was when Keith and I drove together in our golf cart from the church to the reception at the Beach Club. It gave us a few minutes alone together after just being pronounced husband and wife before the party!

Love how the nautical theme reflected Marjory and Keith so perfectly! That’s the best kind of wedding design- when people look at it, and just *know* they see the couple in the design!

What are you doing to reflect your shared loves in your wedding design? Anything special?
