Chic Wedding with a Country Flavor
Long gone are the days of cookie-cutter weddings where all the options are the same as the one before. Now couples see their wedding as a time to celebrate their unique love with their family and friends, and we always enjoy seeing a couple’s personalities shine through the details of their day. Alissa and Ryan chose to have a Hammock House wedding in Wekiva, Florida, and embrace the southern charm they enjoy. With soft colors and lots of heart, this country wedding was simply beautiful and Captured by Elle Photography was there to document each moment. Thanks to Runway Events, the wedding and reception was a lovely expression of Alissa and Ryan’s love with loads of fun.
The bride carried soft pinks and lush greens in her wild and wonderful bouquet made by Celebration Bouquets. It looked perfect perched on top of a horse saddle for photos at the rural Wekiva location.
When the ceremony began, Ryan’s emotional response to seeing his bride was heartwarming. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Alissa and Ryan met at the altar to exchange vows and pour their unity sand.
A delightful touch for the ceremony was the use of our whiskey barrel to hold the unity sand. It was the perfect rustic touch, softened by baby’s breath in glass jars tied with twine. In this touching tradition, two glasses of sand are combined together, impossible to be completely separated ever again, just as Alissa and Ryan will combine their lives together.
Our white resin folding chairs brought bright, light seating to their outdoor wedding. It was a perfect day for a Central Florida outdoor wedding, and Alissa and Ryan beamed with happiness as they returned down the aisle as husband and wife.
Now that the ceremony was over, the party could begin! The couple and their guests flexed their dance moves to the sounds of DJ Rey as they celebrated the happy day.
A beautiful three-tiered cake by Anna Cakes sat on a round tree ring pedestal, the perfect addition to their rustic chic wedding decor.
After eating and dancing and having a ball, the bride and groom passed their family and friends lined up with glowing sparklers as they exited. It was a beautiful day, a loving ceremony, and the beginning of a very happy marriage. We wish you the best, Alissa and Ryan!
