As a Minnesota girl, I was super excited when my friend Janelle asked me to shoot her wedding in Merritt Island, Florida. The weather was getting pretty chilly in my hometown at that time, so I was eager to visit the beaches of sunny Florida!

Thomas and Janelle's Florida Wedding

Thomas and Janelle’s big day was held at a gorgeous rental house on the Banana River, and the ceremony was at the edge of beautiful woods covered in Spanish moss. The whole thing was so picturesque, which worked really well for me as the photographer!

Janelle took care of many of the details herself, which was a great personal touch to the whole event. She pre-made bridal party bouquets of dried flowers, and then added fresh flowers to the same bouquets on the day of the wedding. Centerpieces were simple and adorable, made of bottles, hole-punched tin cans, and more dried and fresh flowers. The dessert was even homemade – two kinds of bread pudding, the groom’s specialty!

The reception was held on the edge of the river, right by the huge dock going out into the water. The dock was also beautifully lit with hole-punched cans and candles, which made it one of many cozy retreats for guests who needed a break from dancing.

Congratulations, Tomas and Janelle! It was truly a day to remember.

Some wedding color combinations really make a statement and tell you exactly what the event will be like. Palm and Citrus are bright, fun and cheery! And I bet if you plan to use this color combo in your wedding, you both love color.

Our Simply Mod wedding invitation features bright colors and its unique pattern can be tied into other elements of your wedding like your cake, hanging lanterns and other décor. There are many varieties of inexpensive yellow flowers, so check your local wholesale club, farmer’s markets or greenhouses.

Create easy and affordable wedding favors with simple favor boxes. Dress them up by adding colorful ribbon and a personalized seal in your wedding colors. You can order bulk ribbon from Ann’s Bridal Bargains which can be used to decorate chair backs, hang lanterns or create a fun and unique alter with ribbon strands hanging down as the backdrop.

If your wedding colors are as fun as these, make sure you have a blast using them throughout your wedding ceremony and reception decorations!

Blue & Silver Wedding Inspiration
My favorite winter wedding colors are shades of silver and blue, and I love snowflake decorations! Start your winter wedding theme with white linens for the tables. White linens are the most common and the least expensive to rent, but you’ll want to add some color. Consider blue linen napkins tied with silver ribbon. Add snowflakes, ornaments and candles to make your tables sparkle. Order personalized wedding napkins for your bar or cake table like these blue cocktail napkins.

Oh, and don’t spend a fortune on your winter wedding centerpieces. Purchase clearance items after Christmas, like silver ornaments, silver ribbon, white candles and snowflakes in all shapes and sizes. Come back Monday for our Bargain Challenge: Winter Wedding Centerpieces Under $10 Each.
