Some of the most elegant weddings are the ones that embrace natural beauty and harness the energy and love of the couple. Michelle and Ryan were married on a bright day in Live Oak, Florida, and completely submerged themselves in sunny weather and outdoor ambiance.
Michelle and her bridesmaids wore monogrammed denim button-downs to get ready, a handy idea for any bride-to-be.
She changed into a gown that featured a sweetheart neckline, ruched fitted bodice and fit-and-flare skirt. She wore a long veil that fluttered in the Florida breeze and walked down the aisle in a sassy pair of Jessica Simpson heels.
Her bridesmaids wore long, dark navy blue dresses with interesting necklines. They all wore their hair in ways that best fit their style. Each lady carried a bouquet filled with calla lilies of various colors, gerbera daisies, and curly willow.
Ryan and his groomsmen looked calm and collected in light gray suits. Ryan wore a gray tie and gray vest, while his groomsmen chose dark ties and dark vests. The boutonnieres featured lime-green button mums and dark blue ribbon.
Under a ceiling of wooden beams and sky lights, Michelle and Ryan were wed in a gorgeous church in front of a generous crowd of friends and family.
After the ceremony, the couple opted for a few photos, embracing the natural landscape and holding hands amidst the tall pines.
Involving the location of your wedding can make me for lasting memories. The only things that beamed brighter than the Sunshine State on this day were the smiles of Michelle and Ryan. Congratulations!
