This elegant and joyful wedding comes to us from Carrie Wildes Photography, based in Tampa, Florida! Here’s Carrie to tell us more:
Molly & Teddy’s wedding was all about 2 amazing families from across the globe coming together and it was just plain stunning. Molly’s gown was simple but elegant with a pearl accented bodice. All of her accessories were also pearls, and extra special. The veil she wore was her mother’s they changed it a little bit by taking off the flower crown. Her earrings were her aunt’s and necklace her great grandmother’s.
See more after the cut!
One of my favorite moments of the day was when her dad walked in to see her, he had a little box that had a pearl bracelet for her to wear. The perfect finishing touch was those pretty little Jimmy Choo wedges. Teddy and the guys are all military special forces, so while they were getting ready, they of course created their perfect wedding day strategy so that everything would go perfectly and it did:-)
Their ceremony was in the Citrus Piazza lined with lanterns and green, pink, and orange florals. Molly’s niece and nephews all had a part as flower girl, ring bearer, and Will did an amazing job reading 1 Corinthian’s 13. The Portofino Bay has so many gorgeous places for photos, I took Molly & Teddy to get the sunset over the lake and the moon was even out.
The reception was decorated in gold with pops of color and throughout the evening they had special treats including mini cupcakes and a late night snack. They had an anniversary dance and the last couple on the dance floor was Molly’s grandparents who have been married over 60 years.
This crew definitely knows how to have a fun party and it didn’t stop until their grand exit! All the wedding professionals involved, led by the team at Just Marry, were literally a dream to work with and this was such a special day.
Congratulations Molly & Teddy and thank you Carrie for sharing! For more information about Carrie Wildes Photography, please visit her website.
