There were so many personal touches in this wedding - I loved it! The bride really let me be creative and run with her theme - simple white elegance, long tables, lot's of candles and a floating floral installation overhead her bridal party were her main requests!
After the ceremony, I planned for the newlyweds to go off site for some photos at the historic Philippe Estate Park - the photos they got were playful, loving and just perfect for Morgan & Jarred! Dinner was a reflection of their favorite foods - tacos, burgers and pasta! We did a themed station for each to keep the guests moving and the party going! The bride and groom did not like cake, so we came up with another option! Her family runs the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, FL and the Amish Donut food truck was one of their favorites, so we brought warm donuts to her wedding! It was absolutely perfect, and such a hit with the guests!
After dinner, and cake the bride changed into her party dress and surprised the guests before her and her groom danced the night away. This was truly a special night, and exactly what the bride dreamed of!!

This beautiful fall wedding is a great example of what a marriage should be about - family. Jim and Nicole have two beautiful girls together and with their families (Nicole's flew in from Germany) they got their life together started off with a great party!
At their water side private property they said a heartfelt "I DO" - and follwed with German traditions - Baumstamm Sägen (sawing a log), and plate breaking. These were all new to me, but so much fun to help plan and be a part of!
Everyone enjoyed dinner and dancing - complete with fire dancers and an appearance by Snow White for the kids!
I have done weddings at so many venues - but there is something special about hosting your closest loved ones at your home to start your life together.
"Herzliche Glückwünsche" Jim and Nicole! (I hope I am saying that right?) It was such a pleasure to help you plan your begining and I wish you all the happiness in the world!
