Janet and Mason’s rustic, outdoor Land O Lakes wedding featured a rose and greenery draped ceremony arch and rose petal covered aisle inspired by the movie Twilight.
“The ceremony was always my main focus. It is the part that really mattered to me, because that is where I became a wife and my husband said his beautiful vows,” Janet shared.
With a specific wedding theme in mind, the bride looked for a Land O Lakes wedding florist who could stay within budget, yet create an unique look.
“I had some interesting and specific ideas, plus a budget, and I was looking for [a wedding florist] who would understand me and be willing to try new things,” Janet explained. “The moment we walked into Northside Florist, I was in love! Kathy has such a beautiful shop and was genuinely excited about my vision. The aisle was covered in petals, the centerpieces and the feasting table were awe-inspiring and my bouquet was breathtaking!”
“Our theme was rustic glam and our colors were gold, pale pink and neutrals. I choose them because the color swatches my wedding planner showed me looked soft and pretty together,” Janet shared.
What did you look for in a wedding florist and what was your decor inspiration?
The moment we walked into Northside Florist, I was in love! Kathy was even willing to make a brooch bouquet (which she had never done before) and was able to make a pretty garland with flowers spilling over the head table. We also had the most perfect romantic arch with flowers and crystal accents. Northside Florist has everything you need and the best out there, in my opinion.
After watching the sunset near the pier in Safety Harbor, Mason and I were walking back to our car when we passed the beautiful downtown gazebo. Mason asked me to dance with him in the middle of the gazebo and that is when the song God Gave Me You started to play and our friends and family walked out from hiding. They were carrying sparklers and circled around us. Mason got down on one knee and pulled a ring from his sock (don’t worry, it was in a small bag). I was so surprised, and of course, said “YES!”
