Vintage glam style, handmade details, and a lovely peach color palette make this Florida wedding absolutely stunning! V List wedding planner Burkle Events did a phenomenal job in helping bride and groom Ashlee and Glenn create a vintage inspired wedding full of personal details- and Andi Diamond Photography was there to capture it all!
Ashlee is here with us today sharing her planning insight:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
So my mother was the person to help me most in planning and for bringing any ideas I had to life. My husband.. fiancé then was really helpful too anytime I reached out to him which was great because I was not the typical girl who gets very excited about wedding planning :) I had a wedding planner (Natalie and Jen Burkle) for the day of to make sure everything was in order and to keep the flow. They really worked their butts off that day and it was amazing to see my mother stress free and enjoying herself to the fullest at the wedding.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
In deciding who to work with my most important thing was that they needed to be easygoing and outgoing. Glenn and I have very busy work schedules so we didn’t have much time to “shop around”. Personality matters too, for example my photographer was friendly, fun and made you feel like you were just spending time with a good girlfriend.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I used Pinterest a LOT for inspiration, I was going for a vintage, soft and romantic feel with personal touches. Our signature drink “Mexico Beach” symbolizes the start of our relationship and very first weekend away together (in Mexico beach for my first time) and the candy table “sugar shack” was named for our favorite place to stop on the slopes in Montana, where he proposed. The books and wooden roses for centerpieces as well as broaches in the bouquets were from the flea market, my mother and I had so much fun and met some of the sweetest people there.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My favorite thing about the wedding was seeing my husband and all of our friends and family dancing and having a great time together, seeing it all play out and just being in the moment.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
I should probably say “don’t stress” but you will and that’s a normal part of it… everything does work out (take it from the most unorganized bride in history) and at the end of the day all that really matters is that you will be married to the man of your dreams. Take moments where just the two of you step back to pray or to take in the crowd, the laughter, the tears and the crazy dance moves. Look in each other’s eyes often and have a blast celebrating your love and commitment to one another!!
I must say, I’ve never seen anything like those handmade wooden roses that were used in the centerpieces! Such a great find!
