Inspired by the soft ocean breeze of Florida’s Winter, we wanted to depict an intimate Florida Beach-side Winter Wedding. Using the beautiful backdrop of the ocean, we sought to create a romantic getaway that would be perfect for an intimate wedding. We imagined a couple joined by their closest friends and family gathering together for a romantic sunrise ceremony followed by a lovely brunch surrounded by soft music and the breeze of the ocean. Our vision included a soft and romantic color palette consisting of warm blues, dusty greys, and silver with touches of blush and champagne. Read on to find out more about the inspiration and wonderful vendors behind this styled Florida Beach-side Winter Wedding!
Their ceremony arch was made of natural wood to enhance the beach landscape. It was simple yet beautifully decorated with tulle and flowers-which tied in perfectly with the table. The integration between beauty and nature is a direct reflection in the couples flowers as well. The brides bouquet was soft and romantic using velvet silver leaves and a punch of color with bright peonies. Her bouquet was adorned with a sterling silver paw print, created by Smallprint Orlando, of the couples’ dog who wasn’t able to be at the ceremony. A simple but important reminder of being a family and becoming one!
Of course, even at an intimate sunrise wedding, cake and champagne are necessary to make the event soiree complete, and Baker E designed a beautiful and luxurious cake. The bottom layer captured the beauty of the waves and each layer had a unique twist which captured the different layers of elegance.
At such an intimate gathering, each guest is near and dear to the couple. They received a beautiful hand crafted invitation suite by Letra Bohemia to tie in the entire theme with name cards and scroll drink markers fit for the princess of the ball! Each detail was the perfect way to let each guest know how important they are.
Ashley Sargent of A Beautiful Theme pulled our vision together by designing a tablescape using luscious and generous layers of tulle topped with soft and sweet floral arrangements. The mixed metals and textured linen touches made the perfect mix of softness and warmth. To create a private ambiance, A Beautiful Theme created a one of a kind wooden chandelier with floating glass globes to give an intimate feel next to the vast oceanside. Ashley finished off the table with vintage dishes, deep blue goblets, mixed metal votives, and soft linen napkins adorned with bedazzled napkin rings which is like adding the crown jewel on top!
Although our models are not a real-life couple, they perfectly represent the romantic balance between the cool and warmth of a Florida Winter. The bride wore a Stella York gown from Carolyn Allen’s Bridal, who added a custom made blue tulle skirt to add a light and airy element to the day. And Laura Reynolds Artistry made the brides natural beauty shine through with a gorgeous braided up-do and picture perfect make-up.
