Its not every day or every year that you are blessed to work with an amazing couple, but this past October I was lucky enough to be able to help plan and design Ross and Leah’s Jeweled, Florida Garden Wedding.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ross and Leah when I helped planned Ross’s sister’s wedding a few years earlier. I love working with this family. They are always the life of the party and family is the most important thing to all of them.
One of the highlights of this wedding was the pop of bold colors against a perfect fall palette of shades of purple. Leah is a simple soul; having the decor reflect the gardens indoor the space was really important while keeping her unique style. Ross and Leah’s Jeweled, Florida Garden Wedding incorporated deeper jeweled tones, along with a more orangic look. This was the inspiration for their wedding. The centerpieces were some of my favorite, since they were composed of florals, lanterns, and birdcages. This created a more natural look. The bright blooms also added more depth to the deep Aubergine linens.
Even though we had to call rain plan and move the band and dancing inside, Ross and Leah were blessed that the rain stop right before the ceremony. They were able to finish first look photos and also have their ceremony in the beautiful gardens next to the St. John’s river.
I am so happy to have another great wedding for this amazing family. We could not have asked for a better evening of great food, a rocking band and even a little extra luck to help the groom’s beloved Cubs win the World Series ( we had a classic take me out to the ball game singing moment during the reception). This couple really incorporated their love for each other, their own little funny jokes and their love for Chicago in their wedding, make it truly theirs.
A huge Thank You to all the amazing vendors that make our events the best.
