Rustic Wedding {Styled}

January 13, 2014


When I moved to St. Petersburg, I knew I was following my dream. I needed to start fresh. I needed to be somewhere where I knew the wedding industry was booming; where amazing young vendors were also following their dreams. During my first few months here, I was able to meet some amazing vendors. These people were passionate, fun and dreaming big – I knew I not only met some great people, but friends as well.

This styled wedding is a collaboration of those friendships and the passion we all feel for the wedding industry and its final product – one very happy couple! This styled wedding was inspired by free people – a rustic, vintage and whimsical clothing brand. We all came together and what we created was beyond magical.

We found the most amazing venue that was not only inexpensive, but accommodating with space. Philippe Park in Safety Harbor in the morning has such brilliant light. The canopy of trees flickered with the sun’s glitter. We couldn’t have picked a better place to engulf ourselves in whimsical heaven. It was private and personal.

For the bride’s bouquet, we purchased flowers from a local store. We bought all types of flowers – some that you may not think would go together, but we wanted to use what was in season. The bouquet smelled delicious, and it was so delicate and classy. We wrapped the stems with silk and tied the ends with hemp. The leftover baby’s breath was used for the bride’s hair – a soft accent for her flowing waves.

The bride wore her favorite combat boots. We thought this was a key detail. Why wear heels when you will be outside, frolicking in nature? It made sense for her to be comfortable, and I think it added enough contrast to her outfit.

The table setting was full of classy china; all vintage. The tea cups lay on the plates with fresh flowers until they were ready to be filled. Lace was thrown in the branches of the tree – we used the natural canopy of the tree and enhanced its beauty. Just enough embellishment for a special day like this.

Our groom was a stud! He wore comfortable khaki slacks, a denim shirt and suspenders. We loved this look! His bow tie was a nice touch too.
