Charming Florida Garden Wedding
It didn't take long for Nicole Rebochark and Thomas DiMarco to realize that marriage was in the cards for them. The couple hit it off while bartending in college, and on their two-year anniversary of dating, Thomas popped the question. Shortly after, the South Florida couple celebrated their union with an intimate outdoor ceremony in Davie, Florida.
The Wedding Gown
For some brides, finding the perfect wedding dress can be difficult, but for Nicole, the first time was a charm. Her strapless gown, from the Galina Signature Collection, featured lace applique on top and gently flowed into a mermaid style skirt. Nicole added a touch of sparkle to her look with an embellished belt.
Arranged by local florist, Field of Flowers, the bride’s bouquet was a mixture of pastel roses and peonies, accented with soft greenery, satin ribbons, and sparkly jewel stones.
Nicole had each member of her bridal party select their own pink or blush gown to allow their personality to shine.
Hydrangea Bridesmaid Bouquet
Local florist, Field of Flowers created simple bouquets of white and pink hydrangeas tied with satin ribbon for the bridesmaids.
Thomas and his seven groomsmen sported gray Vera Wang tuxedos with pale pink bowties.
The couple exchanged vows under an expansive Oak tree at Robbins Park in Davie, Florida, surrounded by their close family and friends.
“I wanted a mix of rustic and glamour, and since we already had the perfect Southern venue, I just added soft feminine touch to the décor,” the bride says. “A blush and gold color palette served as a beautiful combination for the reception. Our wedding took place during the winter, so these colors helped add a warm and inviting feel.”
The tables for the seated dinner were dressed with beautiful bouquets of flowers arranged in mercury glass vases. Floating candles added romance to blush colored table runners.
The dessert table featured a small, two-tiered traditional wedding cake in addition to an assortment of cupcakes from local bakery Mia’s Cakes.
Decorative Card Holder
A dainty, decorative birdcage served as a creative place for wedding guests to leave cards of well wishes to the bride and groom.
“We decided to DIY and make Oreo lollipops as guest favors,” the bride says. “We put vanilla Oreos on sticks and dipped them in white chocolate, then sprinkled them with blush and gold edible beads—our wedding colors. The night before, we had our entire family in an assembly line making 80 of these little treats. It was a great chance to bond with everyone and catch up, too.”
