Florida Ranch Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Kimberly and Justin’s wedding has one of my all-time favorite natural decorations: Spanish moss. There’s something about it that’s just so undeniably romantic, don’t you think? This wedding, shot by Stacy Paul, took place at Cross Creek Ranch in Florida with some seriously amazing scenery. Get ready to fall in love!

Kimberly and Justin's Vintage Ranch Wedding

From the bride, Kimberly: I envisioned my wedding to be simple, romantic and one with nature. I love rustic/vintage inspired things so I went with that idea and expressed it through the color and tone of our wedding. Romantic, charming, simple, one with nature describe our wedding day. As far DIY, my in-laws made all the candle light favors. My husband and I made the signs/pendants that said thank you and just married, along with our initials.

Sponsored Posts

Anyone keeping an eye on spring fashion trends (or even on pinterest!) knows that neon is in, and it’s here to stay. When you put together neon and the phenomenal stationers at Minted, you have what we like to call a win-win. This month they’re adding an expansive collection of wedding invitations and more with bold pops of orange, hot pink, and yellow. To say we’re smitten is an understatement. They’re also running a fab giveaway, read on for the deets!

Good-bye lemons, hello oranges! Honeysuckle has gone the way of 2011 and the New Year is all about Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s 2012 color of the year. Luckily, Minted has plenty of wedding stationery from their stable of indie designers from all over the world that look great in orange. Minted hosts monthly design challenges that any designer can enter so they really have dozens and dozens of aesthetics—there really is something for everyone, but everything is exceptionally fresh and current!

And of course any bright colors (think neon!) are super in right now, thanks to the runway’s influence on wedding stationery. Those bright colors, or whatever colors you choose, will look even more stunning on Minted’s thick, luxurious paper stock. Here, ‘The Happy Couple’ by R Studio, out of Syracuse, NY, color really takes the cake, capitalizing on clean design and lots of empty space.

The great thing about Minted is that their save the dates and wedding invitations are fully-customizable so even though you don’t see loads of orange on their site, every save the date and invitation is available in any color under the sun and you can also change things like fonts, icons, you name it—they’ll do it—ensuring no one sends out an invite that looks anything like yours! This Seaside Design by Dallas-based Palm Papers couldn’t be a cleverer invite for a beach wedding!

This Hold the Date Save the Date by Florida-based B. Wise Papers really lets your photo shine and leaves aesthetic options nice and open for the upcoming wedding.
