Nicole began her day by getting ready with her bridesmaids, with hair and makeup styled by Bella Con Stile Beauty. We loved how her lacy strapless gown matched her bridesmaids’ in blue. Meanwhile, Jared and his groomsmen got dressed in classic suits and ties.
Rather than having a First Look photo shoot, Jared and Nicole captured a few fun photos of them back to back, just out of sight of one another. We thought it was a sweet twist on the classic, giving the couple a moment together before the wedding while preserving the traditional first look.
As guests arrived at the Capen House, they found a myriad of beautiful details. First, they found the blackboard welcome sign and tree-shaped guestbook. Then, upon stepping outside, they found the cool set-up created by Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. The aisle began with a wooden doorway, leading to a flower-adorned archway. We loved the aisle decor of potted floral arrangements on the end of each row.
The ceremony began with the flower girl and ring bearer walking down the aisle with a sign announcing “Here comes the bride”. Nicole then walked down and met Jared at the archway, where they exchanged rings and vows. They also chose to include a wine bottle ceremony, one of our favorite additions. Once they had been pronounced husband and wife, they shared a kiss, and made their way out for some photos together.
Inside, there was more fun to be found. The photo booth from Photoboth Rocks had a sparkly backdrop and lots of props. There was a coffee bar with lots of snacks, and the dessert table held a variety of sweet treats, including the simply frosted cake from Anna Cakes.
The reception was full of love – from the toasts by the wedding party, to the dances with loved ones, to the cake cutting, to the bouquet tossing. From beginning to end, our newlyweds were glowing with smiles.
The night ended with a lavender exit. Nicole and Jared made their way to the getaway car under a shower of lavender, tossed by their guests.
