With a fun, bright coral and blue color palette and a relaxed “vintage picnic” theme, Jessica and Michael’s Florida wedding was everything that they wanted and more, and Caroline & Evan Photography captured it all beautifully! Incorporating an eclectic array of vintage elements in with lace and greenery, Ideal Design Events created a wedding design that reflected Jessica and Michael perfectly, and I’m excited to share it with you all today!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
The person who helped me the most was Michael (my new wonderful husband). He was extremely hands on and was active in every step of the process. All of the ideas, colors, music…we selected together as a team effort. We had a destination wedding so having a wedding planner to execute those ideas was very important. On my wedding day it was our family and friends who were there by our sides.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
As a photographer, the most important thing on my list was my was having remarkable pictures and photographers that I felt I could fully trust and feel at ease with. I didn’t want to have to point out photo opportunities and and discuss lighting on my wedding day. I also wanted someone who understood and could capture our style as a couple. It took a lot of searching and interviewing but I found Caroline and Evan and Im so glad I did. They really are an amazing team, they captured every detail and every tender moment with amazing composition. The pictures are creative, colorful and they certainly pull at your heart strings.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
We are both pretty creative people so we wanted our wedding to reflect that and have little details that would showcase parts of our personalities and passions . We also wanted the atmosphere to be relaxed and fun so we went with a “vintage picnic” theme. We took our time to look through websites, magazine and pinterest as well as come up a few original ideas of our own.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
It’s hard to pick just one part but I would have to say our ceremony, saying “I Do” to my best friend. We both wrote our ceremony and that was very personal for us. It was also a way for us to share with our guest what really brought us to get married.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
The best advice I could give any bride is try to plan to have an hour at your reception where you have no obligation to cut the cake, take pictures or toss the bouquet. Take that hour to soak it all in, look at every detail, relax and socialize with your guest. You worked really hard for this day and you should relish in it. It’s amazing how fast the time will fly by.
What great advice- and it’s so very true!
I love the “vintage picnic” theme that Jessica and Michael chose to go with. Fun, relaxed, and perfect for them!
