With the bride having roots in Florida, and the groom being Michigan born and raised, this couple fused details from this part of their love story into their beautiful garden wedding day. From hotel gift bags to programs and their ketubah, subtle hints to Nayda and Alex’s multi-state adventure could be found all throughout the day.
Using an “ethereal” style as design inspiration, this couple found ways to incorporate the natural elements of the gorgeous waterfront botanical garden of Selby Gardens in with a romantic and whimsical style. Chandeliers hanging overhead, and crystals dripping from trees successfully achieved this feeling, made complete with rich pops of color and texture in the florals created by Elegant Designs .
Every detail made for the perfect reception for guests to enjoy as they celebrated Nayda and Alex, and NK Productions did a beautiful job pulling all of the details together. With a style that adds organic touches and hints of whimsy, we love how their photographer, Tiffani Jones, captured the moments and details from this beautiful wedding day!
We’re excited to share some final words from the bride regarding a special element that they chose for their wedding day.
“One of the things that made our wedding really special was that we wrote our own vows. Though writing generally comes easily to me, writing vows to Alex to be read in front of our closest friends and family was one of the most intimidating tasks I have ever set out to do. Still, it was also incredibly special to share them with him for the first time on our wedding day. When you live together and plan a wedding together, not very many things about the day of your wedding (other than “the dress”) get to remain a secret. I think that’s part of what I valued about our exchange of vows. There is nothing like hearing your beloved’s vows to keep you in the moment during your ceremony and it was simply incredible to share promises with each other in such an intimate way with those we love the most bearing witness to it.”
We adore this. We are always a fan of special details, and personalized vows surely do bring some extra tears to our eyes on wedding days, but we love hearing Nayda give her take on this process. Definitely something she’ll cherish for a lifetime.
