Tiffany and Zachary were married in an elegant red and gold wedding, taking place at The Sonoma House in beautiful Boca Raton, Florida. Tiffany was inspired by vintage and rustic textures, and she designed their day with an enchanted forest theme in mind. In order to bring their wedding day vision to life, Tiffany and Zachary filled their wedding day palette with rich shades of red, pink, ivory, and gold. Because their wedding date was close to Valentine’s Day, we also love that the palette paid homage to our favorite love-filled holiday! The couple also incorporated beautiful blooms (seriously, Tiffany’s bouquet is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!) designed by Boynton Flower Market. Flowers also adorned their cake, and guests were presented with succulent escort cards that also doubled as favors. We also have to mention the moss table numbers – they’re so pretty and unique!
Every photo from Tiffany and Zachary’s wedding is filled with so much love, especially the portraits, and I cannot wait for you to see more of their day captured by Erica J Photography! Plus, make sure to keep reading for all of Tiffany’s best planning tips (hint: sleep, y’all!).
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I planned my wedding on my own, so I mainly used Pinterest for ideas and inspiration, and found a few vendors through friends who had recently gotten married. I think I used the knot for one or two of them, lots of google searches for new and unique venues.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
I definitely valued referrals from friends, people who used them first hand and loved them was most important to me. Also reading a lot of online reviews.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I wanted it to feel like an enchanted forest, lots of rich colors like different shades of greens, reds, gold, creams, and blush. I used moss accents like the table numbers (which my mom made) and moss initials on the fire place. I wanted a very romantic feel so tons of candles, and we brought in a chandelier for the archway we got married under.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
I truly loved everything so it’s really hard to say, but I think I’d have to say my dress was my favorite. I wanted something really unique and dramatic, and I felt amazing in it. And it made my husband tear up which was my goal lol
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Get a good night’s sleep the night before the wedding, the rehearsal dinner and having everyone in town is fun but you want to feel your best the next day so go to bed early. Another thing I would definitely recommend is after the ceremony, before starting your pictures and everything else, take a few moments to go off just the two of you. My husband and I went into the bridal suite at our venue for a few minutes to talk and it was so nice, because the rest of the night you’re pulled in so many different directions.
Love Tiffany’s advice! We definitely agree with getting a good night’s sleep- there’s nothing worse than being totally exhausted on your wedding day!
