Jessica and Chris had a gorgeous rustic Central Florida wedding at Skyline Ranch, and we are so excited to be sharing it with you today! The ranch venue hosted many of the wedding guests on the property in cabins, which made the whole weekend a fun, family-centered event. An earthy, rich color palette of red and navy creates a beautifully rustic vibe for the whole day, complimented by fun details like a beer tap station and cocktail hour games. Everything was planned and designed impeccably by Emily Grace Design, and Caroline & Evan Photography were there to capture each and every detail beautifully. To top it all off, Jessica is joining us today, sharing a little insight into planning her beautiful fall Central Florida wedding day. Sit back and enjoy friends!

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

My mom is incredible and she was there every step of the way helping us make decisions and coming up with ideas. Also, our wedding planner, Emily Waters of Emily Grace Design was absolutely amazing bringing our vision to life. She is so creative and made every detail perfect and something we loved.

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

The most important thing for us was to feel completely comfortable with our wedding planner. I had heard a lot of great things about Emily from friends. Also, Emily is a childhood friend of mine and after I saw photos of her work, I knew she was a perfect fit for us.

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

The colors were our biggest inspiration. I loved the combination of navy and copper. From there it was basically a shopping spree of anything in the right colors that fit our personal style. This meant we made a lot of things ourselves and Emily tied it all together and made lots of personal details for us. It was important to keep every last detail in keeping with our personal style and things we’d like to see everyday in any setting. A lot of her designs and things she made for us now decorate our home.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Two favorite things: one was dancing around with my parents and brothers to the song “Call Me Al” by Paul Simon. It’s an inside joke that we all used to dance around the family room to that song when we were younger. So it was fun to recreate that. Second was having my dad perform the service. It was personalized for us, obviously, but it was so my dad; a combination of love and comedy. Of course we will get to cherish every minute because of our fantastic photographers, Caroline & Evan Photography.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

My best advice for other brides would be do whatever you makes you happy and smile on your wedding day. It is a crazy, chaotic day and it’s over in the blink of an eye. At the end of the day, you’re marrying your best friend and that is the most important part.

Whether you’re newly engaged or you’ve had your ring for a while now, a destination wedding may have crossed your mind.

Today’s Alabama wedding has one of the most beautiful ceremonies and ceremony locations I think we’ve ever featured on Every Last Detail, plus the always amazing Rae and Wes of Rae Leytham Photography captured every moment perfectly! Malori and Alex welcomed their family and friends to Oak Hollow Farms in Fairhope, Alabama. Just before their engagement, Malori mentioned to Alex that she hoped her wedding would have as many twinkling lights as possible, so their ceremony featured the prettiest trees wrapped in lights! The look is so elegant, beautiful, and fitting for their evening ceremony. I also love that they did a reverse unity candle that ended with the couple, their bridal party, and all of their guests holding lit candles as one. Post ceremony, everyone retreated inside the venue where string lights were hung above. The look was perfect for the rustic space, and the bud vases filled with flowers by Wildflowers on each table could not have looked more lovely. The couple’s cake topper says “Always” (my favorite detail!), and it’s so clear they had a wonderful time with help from wedding planner Melissa Wilt Events.

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

My mother April Evans was by my side every single step of the way. She helped me with everything, and it was so special to share this wonderful process with her.  We also were lucky enough to have an absolutely amazing wedding planner named Melissa Wilt.  She helped organize every single thing, and made the entire planning process absolutely stress free.  Together, the two of them made the wedding planning process the most fun and enjoyable time, and I definitely could not have done it without them.

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

I wanted to make sure that the people I worked with were good people first and foremost, and that they were interested in doing a unique, fun, and relaxed wedding. I was fortunate enough to find some of the most amazing people- including the wedding planner, the florist, the photographers,  the venue, the DJ, the lighting company, and so much more. Every single one of them worked so hard to help make our special day everything i had dreamed of, and more.

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

The basic design of the wedding was a relaxed mix of rustic, and French industrial, with an emphasis on lighting, and some elegant nods to Harry Potter. 

There were a few different main sources of inspiration for our wedding. 

First, we are both huge Harry Potter fans. We wanted to include several different Harry Potter details in our ceremony and reception, but we wanted to make sure that they were done in a sophisticated way. 

Second, we wanted lighting to be a big focus. Every year, the Gaylord Opryland Hotel decorates for Christmas, and they always decorate a grouping of large trees by wrapping each limb in small twinkle lights. I remember standing under them and feeling so moved, that I told my husband (then my boyfriend) that I wanted to have a wedding with as many twinkling lights as possible.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

The absolute best part of my wedding was getting to proclaim my love for the man of my dreams, while all of our friends, family, and our dog Deacon, looked on and supported us. During the ceremony we did what is called a reverse unity candle ceremony. Our parents came up and each lit a candle. Then, my husband Alex and I lit one candle using the two candles our parents had lit. We then lit small candles our wedding party had, and the wedding party then went out into the crowd and lit the guests candles, until every single person there had a small flame. It was so beautiful and symbolic of how love is the most important thing in this world and it is better when shared. It was the absolute best part of the wedding, aside from getting to marry the man of my dreams.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

I would definitely suggest, if you have the means, to get a wedding planner. Make sure that you do your research and meet with them before making a decision. Our wedding planner, Melissa Wilt, and I  immediately clicked, and she understood my vision from the very beginning. 

My other, and probably most important piece of advice, is to remember that this is a once in a lifetime event, and that it will go by fast. So be sure to slow down, relax, and enjoy every single minute of it.

Started to spread their mission of “community over competition”, the Rising Tide Society has grown to include tens of thousands of members throughout the country, including Every Last Detail and today’s team of Seattle wedding professionals. Seattle is known for its lush greenery, gorgeous views, and delicious coffee. Naturally, all three elements were included in today’s modern, organic wedding inspiration, in addition to a beautiful palette of green, ivory, peach, dusty blue, and gold.

The team envisioned a ceremony occurring amongst a sea of vines in a beautiful vineyard. Ferns lined the aisle, and we love the asymmetrical floral piece by the altar! Post ceremony, the bride and groom could slip away to enjoy dinner together with a view of a lovely pond while guests found their seats at a table lined with blueberries and an incredible greenery chandelier! For a city known for its coffee, there was only ever one option for dessert – a coffee bar! We love how the bar is paired with a complete array of beautiful cakes.

The Seattle based team truly created a beautiful modern day that’s also organic in both style and product (all of the flowers were grown in the area!). We so hope you love seeing each and every moment behind today’s collaborative team as captured by Karissa Roe Photography!
