Greenery and foliage played a central role in the wedding decor, starting with the watercolor invitations by Kae & Ales.

Bridesmaids wore gray, sage, and emerald green chiffon dresses, perfectly complementing the shades of gray and green in their bouquets.

The bride’s favorite part of the day? “I can truly say that I loved every moment of my wedding; it really was my favorite day! But if I had to be specific, I really enjoyed being surrounded by my family and friends, all of who were genuinely excited to share in our joy. Another favorite little moment was when we were pronounced husband and wife. My husband and I waited to have our first kiss on our wedding day and it was so special for us!”

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  When we began the planning process, we wanted a venue that would be the perfect backdrop for our wedding festivities. We chose words like lush, clean, and natural to describe our dream venue and when we found Park Winters, we knew it would be the perfect fit. We believed that investing into a gorgeous venue meant we would have to bring in fewer outside elements to complete the overall look.

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  We really liked the idea of a simple and neutral wedding, with an emphasis on lush greenery. We wanted minimal details that were thoughtful and intentional.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Overall, our wedding was quite traditional, but it was also very genuine and heartfelt.

Please tell us about any special details from your wedding.  Our love for coffee prompted us to set up a coffee bar complete with custom hand-stamped cups and bags of coffee beans for guests to take home and enjoy. We also foraged for all of the greenery for our wedding. All of the greenery came from the yard of a family member or dear friend.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  Don’t let anything ruin your joy. No matter what may go wrong, or maybe if things just don’t go exactly as planned, remove yourself and just enjoy the day.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Absolutely hire a wedding planner and a stylist. Having someone who knows the ins and outs of the industry and whose style and decision making skills you trust and admire will prove invaluable throughout the planning process.

Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  Decide ahead of time what elements are important to you. Invest your money on things that will last instead of little details that will likely be forgotten by you and your guests.

    The ceremony took place at the Plymouth Congregational Church, and included bagpipes as a nod to the bride’s Celtic background (the “man of honor,” her brother, also wore a kilt).

    The reception took place at The Kampong, one of the five gardens of the National Tropical Botanical Garden. Full of exotic plants and flowering trees, it made for a one-of-a-kind wedding venue.

    Escort cards were tied to miniature souvenir spoons from around the world, and displayed on a bed of moss.

    Says the bride, “We had a vegan wedding so all the food was entirely vegan. No one could even tell because our chef Jay Astafa and his team are amazing! The food was incredible, we had 14 different appetizers and tons of pizza for our main course. Also we own a vegan cookie dough company called EatPastry, so we HAD to have our cookies and milk for dessert.”

    Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  Alfredo’s family all lives in Florida, and it was easily accessible for my family who are mostly on the East coast.

    What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  Keeping things simple, and earthy darkly colored vintage items.

    What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  Eating pizza! And my first dances with Alfredo and my Dad.

    What was the best advice you received as a bride?  To smile a lot and try to enjoy each moment for what it’s worth.

    What advice do you have for other brides?  Just relax and let the day flow. It’ll unfold the way it should.

    Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  Spend money on the stuff that’s most important to you. We didn’t want to compromise on food, so we compromised in other areas, like getting a DJ instead of band.

    We never tire of gray and yellow! It’s such a perfect mix of neutral and bright, modern and preppy, and there’s always a fun new way to do it. Here, Be Inspired PR teamed up with planner and designer LB Event Planning and photographer Ashley Sawtelle to create this modern, romantic styled shoot.

    From Be Inspired:  On wedding days, we’re all wishing for sunny skies and often forget about the many wonderful elements of a lovely rain shower. Our inspiration for this shoot evolved from the beautiful components of a rainy day. To create a moody and intimate setting, we shot at The Kitchen Upstairs, which provided the perfect backdrop with dark slate grey walls, and cozy sitting areas. Modern polka dot prints, cream, yellow and mint were also used to brighten up the mood and bring some cheer. Our florist, Cori Cook created stunning and sleek arrangements with garden roses, peonies, parrot tulips, ranunculus, anemones, lilac and more to complete the façade. Ashley Sawtelle perfectly captured an intimate and elegant setting, and the venue itself provided a feeling of sophistication and fun for guests – the food and drinks will take your event to another level!
