Real Weddings: A Seaside, Garden Dream

Music is the sweetest of all sounds, so much so that it brought this gorgeous couple together. Mary and Dave met playing the trumpet. They began as acquaintances, making beautiful music together, which led to a budding romance, and ultimately the wedding of a lifetime. The sweet couple wed on a beautiful, clear day, at the Naples Botanical Gardens, in Florida. Mary really wanted to keep the focus of the day on the beauty of the gardens that surrounded the ceremony and reception, so she opted to keep the decorations and floral arrangements to a minimum. The ceremony and reception were very simply, yet elegantly adorned by candle light, mercury glass and white calla lilies. The bride and groom chose unique decorative touches to set the tone for a wonderful seaside event. Instead of the traditional guest book, they chose to have their guests write personal messages in a bottle, and they used corks to hold the place cards together. Dm Paper Designs and Jet Set Wed wedding planners, helped organize this perfect day, which was beautifully captured by Karl from Luminaire Foto, for the happy couple to remember for the rest of their life together. We couldn’t be happier for them! Huge congratulations to Mary, and Dave.
