What a beautiful little family the Szeliga’s are! Yomaima and Josh welcomed precious baby Eleanor exactly five months prior to her baptism. I was so excited to be there to capture such a big moment in their lives. Eleanor was such a doll, all smiles and happy even though she hadn’t slept the night before. She finally caught a few moments’ sleep while she was being baptized though 🙂 The day was equally gorgeous, overcast and beautiful light that filled the entrance and lent itself to some truly stunning images. Eleanor is named after her bisabuela (great-grandmother) and I’m so glad Eleonor could attend the baptism, she stole kisses from her great-grandbaby the entire time, making my heart melt a little each time. Thank you Maima for letting me part of this special moment in Eleanor’s life – your family is beautiful.

Wow! What a stunningly beautiful, unique take on a Vow Renewal. It’s always an honor and so fun to work with friendors (friend vendors), especially on styled shoots. Leanna over at Cake Me With You had been dreaming up this gorgeous event for several months, so that gives you an indication of the amount of heart, soul, time and talent that went into this. The models, a real-life married couple, are just beautiful – inside and out. The florals! Oh the florals, the way they cascade down from the copper table decor. This venue – so old, historic Florida and so perfect for this theme. This Moon + Stars celestial inspired Vow Renewal is truly out of this world – check it out for yourself!

This cute little wedding was so fun to capture! It gave me vintage vibes with modern twists. Her ring, which was Mitchell’s grandmothers gorgeous set paired beautifully with the color palette of soft pinks, light greens and navy and is so timeless. Yet Meghan paired it with the very trendy rose gold and fabric draped from the ceiling. This Tallahassee wedding was quaint, not overdone and put all the focus on what matters most: two families coming together to celebrate this new, growing love.

Her bouquet was full of peonies and hydrangeas in romantically soft pinks and white. Next to his classic navy suit, they looked stunning. Not to mention his fun bowtie – love!

His mother and brother got a few moments with Mitchell before walking down the aisle. She pinned his boutonniere on as they shared laughs and happy tears. Meghan’s beautiful hair was braided into a crown and her long curls cascaded down the back of her beautiful dress.

The church was surrounded by perfectly manicured, yet simple landscaping and featured full-wall windows. The perfect backdrop for these detail shots of her gown.

This couple is so cute, and so in love. So easy-going and stress-free. We spent time, just me and the two of them, capturing their first moments together after saying “I do” walking around the church and talking about how they loved planning this together.Tallahassee Wedding Photographer

And that ring! Meghan is so lucky to have Mitchell’s grandmother’s keepsake for her own ring now. It’s beautifully vintage yet timeless, like the whole wedding was.

Thank you, Meghan + Mitchell for letting my capture your Tallahassee wedding. It was beautiful, and refreshing, to attend such a light, romantic, simple ceremony. Many, many years of love to you two xoxo

Citrus hues are not only perfect for sunny summer affairs, but they’re also great for couples looking for something out-of-the-box for their bold summer wedding. “Our couples are choosing yummy orange and raspberry tones more than ever,” say the pros from CCL Weddings & Events. “Many of the venues we have the honor of working with have a white base. Incorporating vibrant colors in such a clean space makes a statement, and it also creates a cheerful, fun and quirky ambiance for you and your guests,” they add.

Archive Rentals tells us that it’s possible to incorporate unique pops of color while still maintaining a classic feel: “The trick is pairing it with minimal textures and keeping it simple.” Limit your color palette to no more than three complementary hues to avoid overload. Here are 28 ways to add a little zing to your bold summer wedding day!

This boho-chic bouquet consists of parrot tulips, lisianthus, and roses, combined with loads of greenery and filler (including stock, Queen Anne’s Lace, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus). Kumquats are an unexpected, bright addition to a jasmine and peony bouquet.

Wedding Invitations

How dreamy is this watercolor-inspired invite? Set the tone for your celebration with stationery featuring a bold font and a colored border. Go for the gusto with an illustrated vineyard motif, matching stamps, and a patterned envelope liner, or pick just one element to jazz up your invites.

Ceremony Décor

Getting married outdoors? For a tangy twist, line the aisle with lemons. A ceremony arch that’s ripe with fruit perfectly complements a vineyard setting.

Reception Décor

Affix printable cards to oranges using pushpins to create a delightful (and budget-friendly) escort card display. Display fruit bowls of varying heights with garden-gorgeous pomanders made from greenery. Breathe fresh life into a standard all-white tent with multicolored centerpieces, patterned linens, and ribbon ties at each post.

White porcelain vases, jugs, and pedestals pop against these floral arrangements and fizzy sodas for a tablescape that’s stunning to behold. Mix-and-match centerpieces and fruit-topped pedestals are perfect for a whimsical bash. A peony at each place setting, along with table arrangements grouped by color, makes for a wow-worthy first impression. If you prefer tall centerpieces, this lush version with lemon and sorbet-colored ranunculus and tulips will certainly make a statement.

Quench guests’ thirst by having servers pass out refreshing lemonade and pink lemonade before the ceremony. Ask the mixologist at your venue to incorporate seasonal ingredients and to put their own twist on classic drinks that guests already know and love, like this Orange Crush Bellini concoction. Don’t forget to include a fun garnish!

Dessert Display

How cool is this quirky variation on the ubiquitous ombré cake? The inspiration for this dessert display was the orange grove setting — the vendors wanted the setup to feel welcoming in its natural environment.
