There’s nothing like a sweet vintage inspired garden wedding and this one designed by Blissful Memories & Events is oh so lovely! Don’t you just love that oversized blush bouquet?
My inspiration came from a visit to my grandparents house where I came across stunning, unique, vintage pieces all around the house. The ring my Nonno gave my Nonna when they first started dating, the beautiful patterned Royal Doulton tea cups and saucers my Nonna collected, to the delicate crystal stemware. It sparked the creativeness for Blissful Memories & Events’ next styled shoot. I wanted the shoot to be soft and airy, with elegant touches and an abundance of vintage details. The soft pink blooms were the perfect pairing with the lush greenery giving it a romantic feel. Some of my favourite touches were the vintage chandeliers we refurbished and using my Nonna’s ring and earrings along with my mother’s wedding shoes and purse.

Vintage glam meets Southern ranch in this beautiful Florida wedding from Bumby Photography! You will love the pearl draped centerpieces and the stunning illusion cuts on the bride’s gown!
Our wedding was a gorgeous vintage garden theme. Very elegant and enchanting. Lots of metallics and greenery were the inspiration! Our location was breathtaking for our vision. Gorgeous lighting and chandeliers hung from the trees along with the Spanish Moss which gave us the perfect enchanted garden atmosphere we desired!
We were gifted with a 1940’s Classic Phantom Rolls Royce to use for our wedding. Being driven with my father to the aisle and that moment walking towards Vincent I would say is a favorite for both of us! Another is our “first look” we had before the ceremony where the butterflies were in full effect, and we gave each other special gifts and took in those amazing moments with each other, absorbing the complete joy we felt knowing the day was finally here!!
The most important thing to us while planning was to remember to enjoy the process. It’s one of the most special times in a couple’s relationship, and it’s a big project. Keeping in mind the love behind the day kept the planning process fun and exciting!
We had a reserved “In Memoriam” sign made to reserve a seat for Vincent’s father. And all our signs around the venue were customized for us as well. We also had hand written table name cards which gave a personal touch! Our rings are both family heirlooms. My ring was Vincent’s mother’s original wedding ring she received from his father, who passed away when he was 12. Vincent’s ring was his grandfather’s wedding ring, who has also passed on. Both very special pieces.
Our first dance was magical too! We danced on a cloud, under the canopy of lights as the sun had just set! We both get so excited and nostalgic when reflecting back on our day!

Effortlessly blending heirloom details into their own relaxed boho style, this New Orleans wedding captured by Starling and Sage is sure to inspire! The old greenhouse that served as backdrop to their ceremony and reception is utterly romantic and set the stage for a stunning event!
Our wedding was meant to be this relaxed atmosphere, with special, custom features to really make it feel exquisite. The colors and textures were very eclectic, but not necessarily rustic. A dusty aqua color, lots of mixed metallics, and shimmery highlights like our weeping-willow looking chandelier… these were all meat to be soft elements to our wedding. If I had to call it something it would be, “Easy,Breezy, Bohemian in the Big Easy.”
For our attire it was all about mixing and matching golds and blues. The Silver and Gold Lillian West gown with the charmuse lining and Chantilly lace, made my whole dreams come true, about being a comfortable bride. We wanted to let our bridesmaids choose which style of dress they wanted to wear, one of our girls decided she didn’t want to wear shoes, and that was absolutely beautiful to me. It was so important for us to include the different personalities of each of our bridal party members. Fun cat socks for the groomsmen, and mixed metallic headbands for the bridesmaids were some of the little touches that truly made the whole look.
When we got this wedding planner gift from his mother, (which I totally recommend by the way), there was this section for both of us to write down what was truly important to us. We wrote: Relaxed, New Orleans, Evening, and on Budget. Even though we might have gone a little bit overboard on the budget, ha, we definitely stood by our decisions. One of the things we splurged on was a Harpist. It was really important that we had some type of authentic music during our ceremony, so one of our bridesmaids played violin alongside the Harpist we hired. Totally worth every dime.
Our wedding wasn’t exactly traditional in many ways, but we did have some beautiful heirloom pieces used. Our teacups were displayed and used for a rich tomato bisque soup. Several of these mix matched porcelain pieces were from the collection of my (the bride’s) grandmother. I had also been given a re polished, and refinished silver, cuff bracelet which belonged to my grandmother. There were also several, beautiful, true-silver flatware that my aunt let us use for the reception.
There were so many personal details invested in our wedding. There was a piece of driftwood that I (Emily) made into a waterfall, Eucalyptus, backdrop. It hung behind the table where the bride and groom sat during the reception. There were also several antiques, like a Syrian Chest, and English Writing Table, and several Persian Rugs. Additionally, our friend decided to help us make this big pile of pillows so kiddos could have a fun place to hang out. The material for the pillows, matched the custom-made flower girl and ring bearer’s outfits.
We had some little seeded plants in tiny pots placed on a tiered shelf and a chalkboard sign that said, “Let Love Grow.” We bought these copper Moscow mule mugs for the groom’s signature drink, that weren’t supposed to be favors, but some how a lot of them ended up being favors — but it’s ok! Haha! We’re just glad everyone had a good time. Our wedding cake, was simple but fresh. It was a classic take on the traditional tiered white cake, but with a few simple tiny oranges (Kumquats to be exact) placed in a chic and effortless way.
