Elegant, Breezy Florida Wedding With An Adorable Attendant

Updated: Sep 13

This beautiful wedding at the Addison was breezy and elegant. Large, beautiful, banyan trees surrounded the courtyard area. The bride and one of her bridesmaids spent days in her parents’ garage creating a beautiful, 8 foot, imitation flower wall that had to be taken apart and transported to the venue. They placed small clusters and soft foliage of coordinating florals and candles with framed photos of their lost loved ones on a memory table and the seating chart and frames with special notes for their guests were hand written on decorative mirrors or placed in frames.

The bride held a full and lush bouquet of all white roses with hanging, tiny framed pictures of her closest, passed loved ones. There were full, lush foliage and hand placed florals over and around the doorway as they walked out for the ceremony.

Their English Bulldog, Piper, was in on the action too! She wore a white dress with a lace top and a tulle poofy bottom, made by Woofs and Ruffles on Etsy. She was so cute strutting her stuff down the aisle!!

Ethical Wedding Planning Tip: Hire a professional big day pet sitter with heart like FairyTail Pet Care. You can find them and more vendors who donate at www.morethanlovely.com/find-vendors.

Advice from the bride: The advice that I would like to share is, through all the planning, remember what is important and why this day is happening.
