Planning with Brianna and Michael for their New Smyrna Beach wedding was such a breeze that, when they got into their getaway car at the end of the night, I took a step back and thought, “Wow, I don’t want it to already be over!” Their bubbly personalities and clear vision for their day made my planner heart swoon, and as I watched the berry tones mingle with the golden hues (literally – Brianna’s maiden name is Berry and Michael’s last name is Gold!) on the actual wedding day, I couldn’t believe what a beautiful, romantic, and family-oriented atmosphere had been created at The Mulberry in New Smyrna Beach. With the Christmas holiday right around the corner, every guest had a glimpse of love and laughter in their eyes that made even myself feel at ease for the entire day – even as the rain came down right after the ceremony ended.
Brianna wore an elegant Hayley Paige wedding gown, complete with an illusion neckline and pretty lace appliques. It was quite different from the costume wedding dress she wore as a child!
Michael and Brianna exchanged personal vows before the first look in these custom vow books from Paperbound Love, an Etsy store.
These veil photos are always my favorite! I always request the couple takes at least one of these shots because they are so romantic and delicate.
The Mulberry in New Smyrna Beach was the PERFECT backdrop for their Christmas wedding. A Chair Affair provided the berry and gold toned rentals that made all the difference while The Wild Thistle perfectly placed the greenery for the centerpieces.
Signature drinks, made by J&T Bartending, added a touch of luxury. If you know me you know I love a good pun, so “The Gold Rush” and “Very Berry Margarita” made me giggle.
Private last dances are a must at Timeless Wedding Designs weddings, but honestly, how could anyone skip a moment as romantic as this? Meanwhile, on the other side of the barn doors, I was busy lining the guests up for a magical sparkler exit to happily ever after.
