Modern Riverfront Wedding




The timeliness of this shoot could not be more fitting as we are in the beginning of the Holiday season! Thanksgiving is here, Christmas, Hanukkah and Holiday parties  will be popping up left and right! In a season when we are being stuffed with heavy food practically every week, I thought it so refreshing to have a small intimate wedding with a simple cocktail hour and a delicious slice of cake to celebrate the Bride & Groom! Something intimate, but every bit as beautiful as a large wedding would be!

Copper, rose pink

This chic copper, rose gold, and white invitation suite was designed by The Joy Co.


Our lovely Bride was breathtaking! Hair and Makeup by Crystal of Bella Chic.


Our Groom looked awesome, too! His lovely Bride gave him a once over and he was good to go!


Mimosas and Moonshine set up a comfy and stylish lounge area for the bride and groom, and it fit perfectly on Yellow Dog Cafe’s newly renovated Riverfront Deck.


Cheers to the newly weds!


And to The Yellow Dog Cafe for the delicious hors d’oeuvres!


The cake was not only gorgeous, but super delicious thanks to House of Patel Macarons!


This ruffled rose gold and silver beaded dress was stunning! It’s a Watters Bridal from Olivia Bowen Bridal in downtown Melbourne, Fl.


I purchased the flowers from a wholesaler in Orlando and made all the arrangements for this shoot myself.


Not revealing every last detail as of yet, but the table setting was gorgeous!

There’s still so much more to share about this gorgeous shoot! I just wanted to give you a little taste for now as I’m hoping to get it published in a major wedding inspiration blog! But, fear not, there will be more to come! Including more detail shots, two unique table set ups, a gorgeous riverfront ceremony space with a DIY modern wedding arch, plenty of DIY  wedding “how to”  and more lovely wedding inspiration for your special day! For now, enjoy the Holidays and here’s to more “Happily ever afters!” CHEERS!!

Photography, flowers, and event planning done by yours truly!
