A Vintage-Inspired Outdoor Wedding in Florida

A tropical Florida garden sets the stage for an intimate, wildly romantic celebration.

“The lush, sunny setting allowed nature to take the lead, serving as a spectacular backdrop and informing our design and décor decisions," says Eileen Morales of Beauty in the Making. “We went with a palette that echoed the surroundings in a spectrum of soft greens and creamy tones, accented throughout with delicate notes of blush and coral.”

The tablescape was topped with a multitude of tapered candles and a lush, low centerpiece. Single-blossom accents wind their way down the length of the table. Rosé adds pretty pops of color.

The eclectic vintage seating, sourced from Love in Vintage rentals, included a chartreuse velvet loveseat and ornate “Hannah” chairs.

Tall candles in matched and mismatched brass candleholders “feel magical,” Morales says.
