Ben and Rachael were an amazing couple to work with - I loved every minute of planning their super styled and oh so boho wedding!
Rachael wanted to get married at her childhood home - Shadow Oaks located on a quiet road just outside of Sarasota, Fl.
On the first (of many) site visits, I fell in love! From the winding driveway that led to the home to the mossy oak trees - it was purely enchanting!
Florals were definitely a focus, so instead of draping or an arbor - we took the tree that Rachel used to play in and adorned it with hundreds of blooms. The light hit it perfectly for their ceremony - and the vintage car wasn't a bad touch either!
Cocktail hour was held on the back patio, and guests were welcomed with "Sister's Sangria" - a family favorite!
Dining was under the cover of a beautiful oak canopy, dressed with crystal chandeliers. The couple opted for a family style dinner - which really added to the family atmosphere of the evening!
They danced the night away with those closest to them - and said goodbye with a kiss under fireworks.
It could not have been a more perfect beginning for this very special couple. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to know them, design for them and be a part of their story!
