Happy Anniversary Jillian & Ryan!

One year later - Congrats Jillian & Ryan! What a love story! They met and dated in High School, went their separate ways and then last year, God brought them back together! It was such a privilege to be involved in their wedding plans. Jillian is incredibly talented and brought her vision through so many creative DIY projects. She was so organized and so detailed - it made my job so easy. The wedding was held in her parent's backyard where months of landscaping and wiring work became a reality on the wedding day. Kudos to FOB who is a landscape architect and the FOG who is an electrician! I can't possibly describe all details that made this wedding so special and fun. The guests sat at the dinner tables during the ceremony and the "ceremony" site became the dance floor when the sun set!

Ashley Brockinton Photography was on the scene! All the bridal photographs were taken the Monday before the wedding - such an awesome idea. Fun family and bridal party photos were taken during the day. The flowers were ordered at Costco and put together by me and a team of friends! The boutonnieres were purchased on Etsy. The placecards were made by the bride using photos from Facebook! The tables, chairs, linens and tableware were ordered from Taylor Rental and the catering company was "Frisco's". They brought an great pasta bar for everyone to din on! The cake was baked by a friend of the bride and included a gluten free layer for special guests! It was the last of my November weddings in FL. The bride and groom left and the party continued. It was such a blast.

Congratulations Rachel & Matt!

I guess I'm a little behind in my blogging. My second wedding in FL in November was for Matt & Rachel. An adorable couple that met on EHarmony! Matt is in the military stationed in NC and was so handsome in his dress blues! Rachel was a stunning bride and her mother was one of my favorite MOB's!!! She called me her "wedding counselor" and kept her "sane" through the whole planning process. The "Day of" was amazing and so much fun!

The wedding was held at The Quarry in Naples, FL. Kevin from Botanicals by the Bay did an amazing job on the flowers, Ashley Brockinton Photography brought their team - can't wait to see her photos (these are from my Canon Point & Shoot), and the cake is from Mickelsons.

An amazing venue, an amazing team, for an amazing couple and their families!
