Real Weddings: Jenifer + Gastao

Jenifer and Gastao were married in Jenifer’s parents’ backyard in Coral Gables, Florida. How lucky is that? I love the attention to detail that Jenifer used when selecting her flowers. She did all her flowers herself (!) and chose ones that not only fit into her color palette, but also whose meanings she loved. For example, she chose lilacs (first emotions of love), stock (lasting beauty), seeded eucalyptus (protection, healing), and a several other flowers which not only looked beautiful but also had special meanings. There were so many beautiful photos of them from Elaine Palladino Photography that I had a very difficult time narrowing down which ones to include! A gorgeous setting for a gorgeous event, so happy to share it with everyone today!



How cute are these dresses? They were handmade by the seamstress that used to make all Jenifer’s competition leotards when she was in gymnastics and Jenifer made the flowers on them.


Seriously though, can I come over for summer BBQs?
