• A Gatsby Wedding

  • Lauren & Matt – April 18, 2015 – Mead Garden & Winter Park Garden Club

    This couple was one of our favorites. They were fun-loving, sweet and so in love! We loved getting to know them over the past year to help plan their dream Gatsby Wedding. Lauren got the inspiration from one of our past blog posts, so we just helped her plan it.

    The garden ceremony was simply beautiful. Set in Mead Gardens in Winter Park, FL, the amphitheater needed no decoration at all. The couple said their hand written vows on the venue’s stage, with 100 of their closest friends & family surrounding them. Our favorite part of the ceremony was when Matt turned around after the couple’s daughters {and may we say, the most adorable flower girls ever!} walked down the aisle. He truly did not want to catch a glimpse of Lauren until she was standing at the back of the aisle, about to walk towards him. It was well worth it, as Lauren was simply stunning in her lace wedding dress with her hair & makeup reflecting the 1920s era. All of the bridesmaids were in different colored flapper inspired short dresses, too!

    After enjoying a lovely cocktail hour on this warm April evening, guests were invited into the ballroom. They were immediately overwhelmed by the beautiful ceiling draping and neutral colored linens. We chose to keep the decor simple, but staying with the colors the bride wanted, which were peach and champagne. Our favorite decor item were the handmade tables numbers. Lauren was brave enough to craft those herself, by painting wine bottles gold, with a number perfect for a Gatsby wedding!

    Good food and fun times were had by all! We really enjoyed watching all of the guests enjoy themselves for the entire reception. There was even one point where every single guest joined in on the conga line around the ballroom! We hope the newlyweds enjoyed every minute of their special day, from their first shot photo, to the last drink!

    Lauren & Matt, a big THANK YOU for letting us help you plan your dream Gatsby wedding! We loved working with you, your family & great vendors to make your special day perfect. We wish you both, Lyla & Anabelle all the best! XOXO
