There is so much I want to show you. I thought I would post the decor and venue on this post and then the actual wedding on my next post.
This was a morning wedding and we were oh, so, lucky to have a clear, sunny, perfect, 73 degree day!
The wedding venue was a historical house in Winter Park Florida, a city located right next to Orlando. This gorgeous house is owned by the city and used for special events.
This is the back patio where the reception was held
Here's the front of the house where the actual ceremony took place. The aisle was lined with lace tussie mussies I made......
After the ceremony we moved to a small building on the grounds for the Cocktail hour
During the cocktail hour people were encouraged to write their best wishes for the Mr. and Mrs. and put them in a vintage mail box I found and sprayed heirloom white, the color we earmarked as the official wedding paint color LOL
Next to that was the table escort cards, a huge frame with chicken wire and tags made with vintage sheet music, the guests name, and the table number stamped with my vintage stamp set
Now, lets move into the house. One of my favorite things was the vintage wedding photo's of the bride and grooms family on the mantle
This was the brides idea and I loved it, so fun to look at the wedding styles and how they've changed over 100 plus years. The flower framed picture is my, Grandparents on their wedding day
Now moving out to the patio where the reception was held
The centerpieces were mirror trays we found at thrift stores over the past year that I sprayed with heirloom white paint. The teapots were from the brides Mom's and my personal stash and the rest were found at thrift stores
The teapots where filled with babies breath and light pink roses with a tea light and vintage sheet music table numbers. I was able to pick up the little picture frames at thrift stores for .25 - .50, they were all different styles and sizes but, made uniform with heirloom white paint
The sweetheart table for the bride and groom was up front. A special thank you to a sweet blog friend who hooked me up with the lace table runners, they added such an elegant touch
The brides Mom made the menu's.... Oh yummmm, the food was fabulous!
......Yes, dessert was the "Yum Yum cupcake truck" that pulled right up to the circle drive and all of the guests lined up to get their cupcakes
Food trucks are a hot thing right now in Orlando. We often go to food truck events, where 30 to 40 food trucks will gather in a mall parking lot. We bring our own table and chairs and then everyone sets off to get their food and regroups to eat together.
OOP's, it's the groom calling me from his dressing room...I have to go, the wedding is about to start!
