Sydonie Mansion Wedding with vintage elegance

The historic Sydonie Mansion was the perfect backdrop for Alison and Miles to get married. Surrounded by friends and family, the shared their own written vows and danced under the stars.

Alison and Miles met back in high school 14 years ago in chemistry class. They recently lived in Gainesville while Miles finished his PhD is Organic Chemistry and Alison was a teacher. They have since moved back to their hometown of Fort Myers with their 2 furbabies!

We love that Alison and Miles ditched the traditional idea of a wedding party and mixed guys and girls on both sides. We love this concept because you should always have your friends by your side on your wedding day - no matter their gender! Alison’s side had her 2 best friends and her cousin. Miles chose his brother, sister and his best friend to stand with him.

One thing we learned about Alison - she is always thirsty! And Miles has assumed the role of husband by vowing to always keep her hydrated (yes, like, it was actually in his vows). Throughout the night he was bringing her glasses of water and we can’t think of a sweeter thing for a new groom to do for his bride!

The future is so bright for these newlyweds! They’re saving up for their European honeymoon they hope to take next year, while they plan their next adventure wherever fate takes them!

Isleworth Wedding with elegant boho details

Sarah and Adam started of their day by popping champagne, sharing stories and laughter with their friends and getting ready for the rest of their lives together. Their wedding landed on National Dog Biscuit Day so what better way to honor that than having their cute pup celebrate with them? Of course their dog, Sushi, had to get glammed up too so they painted her nails pink - awesome right?

Their wedding was inspired by Shakespeare “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Sarah wore an off the shoulder gown and added a dainty gold hair piece for detail. She had her niece in a whimsical dress and floral crown. They had a garden filled with flowers from Velvet & Twine - they were absolutely beautiful!

Seeing Sarah’s face as shes walked down the aisle locking eyes with her future hubby for the first time made it feel like they were falling in love with each other all over again. She was so excited to see Adam’s reaction and couldn’t wait to get down the aisle. They first met at the hair salon where Sarah worked. Their admiration for one another was undeniable. So, about two years later Sarah was the one to make the bold move and asked Adam when he was going to ask her out. I guess it worked because the two have been hooked ever since!

Adam proposed with his thick southern accent on their three year anniversary in New York. Sarah has a friend that owns the store “Lexie” so he pulled a couple of strings and got a window display saying “Will You Marry Me?” Sarah almost completely missed the entire thing before saying “YES!”. Now they are starting their next chapter together forever. We are so happy we got to share these heartwarming moments with them.
