The dress from The Dress Theory Nashville, and the custom veil by Olivia Gray were a perfect match for each other. The combination stopped us in our tracks that day!

The florals we brought into the shoot were filled with garden roses, wispy larkspur, ranunculus, kale blossoms and a couple pops of color from some jazzy poppies. We just couldn’t resist adding in a touch of personality!

The escort display was one of our favorite touches! We loved the terra cotta tiles, and how they nestled into the white and green kale. There was just something so fresh and simplistic to the whole look. And that vintage bar cart…

I think my cheeks are still a bit pink after reading through Kathryn’s sweet words over on Every Last Detail. :) Ashton Events is featured on ELD today and, as a team, we’re delighted to share these images from the very talented Catherine Ann Photography with you!

We had so much fun working alongside Kathryn + James! They grew up in central Florida, even though they now live in Connecticut, and wanted to celebrate their wedding with their nearest & dearest in the charming little town of Lakeland. I knew we would instantly be a good fit when Kathryn began to describe all of the personal touches she wanted to include in their day.

Kathryn was easily one of the most decisive brides I have ever worked with, and also one of the sweetest! She has a talent for balancing a direct idea with a critical eye in the most loving way. It made the decision process so simple for us! I’d like to think we found that same balance in her wedding design. Everything was very exact and precise- without any extra fluff. And yet, there was romance, elegance and personal touches throughout the entire day. It was a beautiful harmony.

And isn’t Honey, their dog, the sweetest!?

I loved that their proposal took place in the MET (you can read that sweet story here), and we used hints of that gallery-style emphasis throughout the day. The boxwood at the welcome area, and again for the escort display were so chic and sophisticated.

A personal favorite moment? I loved the unity tree that they incorporated. James’ parents own a citrus farm. They planted orange trees specifically for the wedding, and selected one for Kathryn + James to keep. Both sets of parents provided soil from their homes for the ceremony. Kathryn’s parents actually moved during her engagement, and they were thoughtful enough to save soil before they officially moved. The dads helped move the tree during the ceremony, which I thought was so sweet given the union of the families.

It’s the last week of April, and just before the spring months give into the summer heat, I am delighted to share this gorgeous wedding with you! Glamour & Grace was kind enough to feature Ed & Luciana’s celebration today- go take a peek! The images from Roohi Photography so perfectly captured the day.

We had so much fun working with Luciana & Ed on their big day. They are two of the most outwardly joyful people I have ever met. Luciana greets everyone with a beaming smile, and Ed’s calming presence brings confidence and encouragement to everyone he meets. It was a joy to watch them share their special day with their nearest & dearest- from all over the world!

See what I mean? That joy is contagious. Luciana’s gown from Malindy Elene, and the Davis Island Garden Club were the starting point for the design. We knew we wanted the wedding to be romantic and garden-inspired.

The billowy layers of ivory inspired the use of ribbons throughout the decor, including both the ceremony aisle and the escort display!

Botanica Design Studio did an incredible job with the florals, and we loved adding that hint of garden whimsy with the sprig of wax flower at each table.

One of my absolute favorite details of the day was the cake table. Luciana is from Brazil, and had her mom send her the tissue paper flower cups to hold the bon-bons. It’s a tradition in Brazil for the dessert table to be a wow factor, and it was a hit!

The cake cutting was a hit, especially due to the addition of sparklers (at Luciana’s request) and Ed’s sword.

This celebration hit all ranges of emotion- but Rana’s capture of this moment is by far my favorite.

It’s what makes me love my job! But, this one is a close second.
