Gorgeous florals and a soft, romantic style play an integral part in making this vintage garden wedding from Concept Photography absolutely stunning! Taking place at the beautiful Ryckman Park in Florida, expansive oak trees, a glimmering river, and gorgeous sunset were the perfect setting for Jamie and Adam’s outdoor wedding they had always envisioned. Jamie is here with us today to tell us more about her wedding…

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

Our wedding planner Karry Castillo with Uniquely Yours was a major part of the planning process and wedding day. She made sure the planning went smoothly during the months leading up to the event and helped make our day perfect. She used her expertise to direct us while still allowing the wedding to be our own ideas and inspiration. I highly recommend using a wedding planner!

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

We were lucky to stumble upon our amazing photographers while painstakingly browsing the web for wedding inspiration. I loved the way they captured couples naturally without looking too posed. They referred us to our wedding planner and after meeting with her we knew she would make our vision come to life. Each vendor after that was selected carefully based on who would fit the theme best.

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

I have always loved the vintage theme that has become popular with weddings this past year but I wanted it to be unique as well. I would say our wedding was a cross between romantic and vintage. There is so much beauty in simplicity so we kept the colors neutral and just let the outdoor scenery shine. The skeleton keys used for the escort tags were the first things I had to have and everything else fell into place from there.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

There were so many favorites that I had during my wedding day. I loved the antique doors that were used for the ceremony in place of an arch. Our flowers were so whimsical and they were everything I ever imagined them to be. The whole day was pretty magical.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

My best advice for other brides would be to really live in the moment on your wedding day. The time that you spent planning brings you to this one day that you get to marry the one you love. My husband and I promised each other that we would take in all of the details and not leave each other’s side all day/night long or get caught up in formalities. We kept our promise.

Oh I LOVE Jamie’s advice to stick together during your wedding day. As odd as it seems, you certainly can get split up between the dancing and talking to guests, so consciously making an effort to stay by one another’s side is a great idea!

Have you and your future spouse talked about how you will enjoy your wedding day? Anyone married already and have any advice to share for enjoying your wedding day to the fullest? Comment below! :)

Inspired by a love for open air markets and fresh food, these farmers market wedding ideas from Amanda Douglas Events and J.Stephens Photography might be my favorite wedding inspiration ever! Using fresh fruits and vegetables like asparagus, radishes, and pears (just to name a few), a gorgeously crisp and colorful tablescape was the result, and it is truly a sight to behold.

From Amanda Douglas Events:

“This shoot was hugely inspirited by my love for farmers markets, my time in Europe and lazy afternoons strolling through Italian Markets.

A beautiful fresh garden and the charm of a farmers market is alluring to many, so why not incorporate rich elements of both into your wedding. Every day vegetables such as asparagus and radishes balance out the exotic temptation of the large pink King Protea from South Africa.

As all humans come in many different shapes and sizes, so do fruits and vegetables. Tall and leafy vegetables are perfect for high centre pieces, Swiss Chard and asparagus as texture and allure to your table. Using the asparagus at the base of the flower arrangements elongates the over all setting, while the rough string tied around the vegetables gives the allusion of the items coming right from the market. Mason jars and milk jugs are a great cost effective tools to house items such as swish chard and radishes. These jars are items that you can easily collect over time, and takes your guests back to the moms kitchen growing up, making home made jams and jellies.

To keep with this crisp market theme use menu and place cards in calligraphy to personalize each setting. A steady hand, black ink, and crisp white paper can add that extra touch to your special day. When choosing the items on your menu, remember to keep them rich in flavour to match your overall theme; such as the antipasti stuffed mushrooms capicola and proscuitto. Surpass the traditional white cake at your wedding and opt for a naked cake with luscious cream, and caramel drizzle topped with ripe juicy blackberries. A naked cake ads a rough edginess to your table as it is full of different flavors and textures.

Your big day can be both enchanting and elegant using this Market Fresh theme.”

Being a bit of a foodie myself, I just can’t get enough of this unique take on a wedding theme! In fact, I told my husband that if we ever do a vow renewal/wedding redo, we will definitely be using this as inspiration!

I would love to hear what you think of these famers market wedding ideas! Are any of you inspired by a theme like this?

I love this modern garden wedding from Joe + Kathrina Photography! Bright and cheerful with a laid-back feel, everyone just looks like they are having the best time! Pops of pink, yellow, orange and gray provide a modern color palette while fun details like lawn games give the day an air of whimsy.

Wes and Tricia’s venue, Hidden Oaks, doesn’t allow alcohol on the premises, so they made sure to include lawn games and a candy bar to entertain their guests during cocktail hour.

Cocktails or not, do you plan to provide your guests with extra entertainment during your reception? I’d love to hear all of your fun ideas!

Happy Planning!

Set against the beautiful Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida, Diana and Matthew’s champagne and blush wedding planned by NK Productions was romantic, elegant, and full of surprises! Yes, you read that right… surprises literally filled the air at this wedding! From a 2 jet fly-over signaling the beginning of the evening and gorgeous circus acrobats high above the cocktail hour, to a magical firework show and a helicopter pickup for the bride and groom! Lucky for us, Ryan Joseph Photographs was there to capture all of the beauty and fun surprises so we can experience this gorgeous wedding for ourselves!
