Escape to Florida with us today as we take a leisurely stroll through this Spanish-inspired wedding gallery overflowing with verdant greenery and soft white petals. Ingrid and Jake had nothing but love on the brain since the moment he answered Yonce’s call and put a ring on it! Their intimate celebration with rustic chic decor and a timeless color palette is proof yet again that nature is the perfect inspiration for a sophisticated fete and that oftentimes, less is more.
J+T enlisted the incredible Florida based photography team, Joshua and Rachel Best, to capture their special day. So once we saw their names in our inbox, we knew we were in for a treat! The images are wrought with emotion and purpose, and we love, love, love the art in each frame.
Ingrid and her Father, Gustavo rode in a 1957 Rolls Royce to the ceremony – is this real life?!
From the bride, Ingrid: From the moment we got engaged, Jake and I knew that we wanted to be married as soon as possible. We decided that we wanted to have a short engagement and an intimate, traditional wedding ceremony at a small chapel surrounded by family and friends. We were both studying for our law school final exams when we set our wedding date for only four months from the proposal! Our wedding day was a warm mid-June afternoon at a quaint chapel in Windermere, Florida. We wanted to embrace, in the aesthetic of the ceremony and reception, the ambiance of a slow summer afternoon stroll through a garden.
Our color scheme featured gold accents, countless white flowers, and lush greenery. The bridesmaids and groomsmen wore light blue dresses and navy suits. After a beautiful ceremony at the First Baptist Church of Windermere, we held the reception in my parent’s lush, green backyard. For the reception, we installed beautiful chandeliers above two long wooden tables covered in dark green plants and floating candles. Two Spanish guitarists played soft music while dinner and desserts were served to our small, intimate group of family and friends. We will soon celebrate our first anniversary, and I still think about and cherish every moment of our big day. It was perfect.
