Romantic Garden Inspiration in Boca Grande

Boca grande Wedding

I cannot find enough words and express how excited I am to finally post this beautiful elopement inspiration in Boca Grande, Florida. It was a lot of fun to put everything together and our creative team was simply amazing! Also, it was the sweetest surprise to see it live on digital pages of Grey Likes Weddings!! I can scream to the rooftops how grateful I am to be published and to see my work appreciated by others. It's a huge huge blessing and I am forever thankful for every vendor and a beautiful model couple that we were a part of it.

A little story how it all started, began way earlier this year. A.J. of A.J. Dunlap Photography emailed me that she will be heading to Florida for Easter and would love to collaborate on the elopement romantic inspiration shoot! She also mentioned that Wedding Paper Divas were the part of it! Having an amazing previous experience with Wedding Paper Divas, I was definitely in!

Besides florals, I decided to be a stylist for this project.

First of all, I had to find a model couple and the first one I reached out to said, YES! To tell the truth, I secretly wanted   Alina and Eddie  to have as  model couple for a looooong time already. SO, whenever they agreed, I just knew they were meant to be for this shoot. They were incredibly amazing and we loved working with them!!

Wedding Paper Divas sent us beautiful set of stationery that perfectly fitted the overall theme of our romantic inspiration.

The Bridal Boutique was quite an easy choice because it is my favorite!! Blush Bridal Sarasota is my top choice always period! Haha. I just love working with them. Fondren, the owner of the boutique is one the most genuine and sweet industry ladies I got to know and she is very passionate about weddings and business. We have chosen beautiful hair piece and the  Reem Acra  gown with a signature romantic flourish and it perfectly fitted our model.

For the florals I decided to use seasonal blooms that are my all time favorites: ranunculus, anemone, clematis, tulips and oh so delicate sweet pea!  They added that perfect touch, romantic feel, and  created garden lush look of the overall shoot!

Beautifully curated tabletop pieces were provided by awesome ladies from  Greenhouse Picker Sisters that are located in North Carolina. A.J. was able to bring all of it with her and we had a lot of fun styling and figuring out everything on a spot. 

A. J. found the loveliest and perfect location for what we both envisioned for this shoot, the Garden First Baptist Church in Boca Grande. As I said before, all the styling and placing of the table we just did it organically on a spot and it was a pure joy to work with A.J. and her husband.

Our all white cake was adorned with a few blooms to keep it simple and elegant. The Tipsy Cake Company was able to provide what we need it within two days after contacting them.  It  was just amazing! 


This was quite unexpected project, it definitely wasn't on my goal list of things to accomplish for 2016. But the minute A.J. reached out and by the time when we had to say our goodbyes everything was simply perfect! I am beyond happy to be a part of it and creating new friendships that I am sure will only grow with time!
