Peep This Romantic Florida Wedding And Prepare To Swoon

When it comes to wedding inspiration, nothing is quite so magical as seeing what real couples do for their big day. Since 100 Layer Cake is our source for peeping the most beautiful ways brides and grooms say "I do," it'll feature weddings from Australia to Napa and everything in between. Brides beware: You're going to want to pin just about everything you see. And even if you're not engaged, you'll want to check it out just for the love story.
We can usually predict a thing or two about a couple’s wedding style from their engagement photography. (Kinda like a sneak preview, yes?) And, when we saw Gillian and David’s sweet e-sesh last holiday season, we knew their wedding would be elegant yet unfussy, wildly romantic, and full of meaningful details. Jessica Lorren Organic Photography was there again to capture it all.

"One of the best things David and I can say about our wedding was that we could honestly call it our day. So often people call it the bride’s big day, but our wedding truly reflected our taste and style as a couple. Over the course of our nearly two-year engagement, my then-fiancé and I made almost every decision together — with the obvious exceptions of the dress, hair, and makeup."

We subtly included personal details that were meaningful to us. The bridesmaids’ blue dresses and orange flowers — the only colors included in our champagne and candlelight evening — were a nod to the University of Florida, where we began our relationship (Go Gators!).
