When Maggie Stolzberg Photography and our Fave, Kelly from Just Save the Date, join forces, magic happens. This enchanting occasion is cozy and cheerful. Erika and Wes chose the Albin Polasek Museum for portraits and ceremony since it was close to their reception venue and allowed their dogs to be included. Adding to the charm: lakeside views, cypress trees and colorful blossoms.
“ When we toured the garden for the first time, we knew it was the place. Simply gorgeous! ”
The wedding party members were suited up in grey and mismatched mint dresses. Vibrant shades of pastel pinks, yellows and blues stood out in the bouquets and also complimented the blooming ceremony landscape. The beloved pups stood in as ring bearer and flower girl. They stole the show for a moment walking down the grassy aisle in a matching bowtie, floral collar and tutu. So cute.
From Erika: A favorite memory was when our minister, Wes' uncle, forgot to ask, 'who gives the bride away?'. He started right in with his speech and my father refused to sit down until he had the opportunity to say the he and my mother were giving me away. It was an accident but gave everyone a good laugh. It was also a very touching moment that my father wanted to hold on to a treasured wedding tradition.
Following the ceremony, guests traveled to the historic Winter Park Farmer's Market nearby to celebrate. The couple's favorite local restaurant provided a full BBQ dinner spread, plus locally brewed beer and wine blends were flowing. According to the guests, it was the best wedding food they'd ever had.
The evening concluded with a mobile dessert truck serving cupcakes of all kinds. The two newlyweds climbed aboard to serve and share a moment wih each guests one last time. Sweetest send-off ever!
Best wishes and cheers to you both!
