Romantic Wedding on a Florida Plantation
The Bride and Groom
The bride wore a stunning, sleeveless gown with a peplum accent from Lela Rose's Tree House Collection.
“The overall inspiration for the wedding suite came organically from the wedding ceremony and reception venues. I designed a logo that was carried throughout the overall design, which created personalized pieces that made our entire wedding cohesive and personal," says Caroline.
Hotel Guest Box
The bride and groom made sure their guests felt welcome by providing treat boxes in each of the hotel rooms.
Floral crosses designed by Missy Gunnels Flowers adorned the venue doors.
The couple’s wedding ceremony was held in the sanctuary of Trinity United Methodist Church in Tallahassee, Florida.
The Bride's Bouquet
“The fabric wrapped around my wedding bouquet came from the sleeve of one of my grandmother’s dresses,” says Caroline of her bouquet designed by Missy Gunnels Flowers.
A Statement-Making Accessory
As the saying goes, Caroline made sure to have something borrowed—her mother’s vintage fur wrap.
The Bridesmaids Dresses
Caroline’s bridesmaids wore steel gray dresses, and her maid of honor wore a light blue accent dress. All bridal party dresses are from the Jenny Yoo collection.
The Groom's Suit
Brett and his groomsmen sported steel gray suits with boutonnieres.
The Wedding Party
The wedding party stops for a photo op in front of a backdrop of trees dripping with Spanish moss.
The Floral Arrangements
The reception was adorned with rustic floral arrangements designed by Missy Gunnels Flowers.
A Monogrammed Accent
The bride didn't overlook even the smallest of details. Linen pillows embroidered with the couple's wedding logo sat on plush couches at the reception.
Caroline and Brett kept the wedding cake—made by local baker Sandy Stone of Sandy’s Sweets—simple with a classic cream and gold color scheme.
“The wedding day is about the bride and groom beginning their new life together; however, we wanted our day to be just as much about our guests who traveled near and far," says the bride.
