Growing up in the same town together, Brooke and Daniel did not connect until Brooke returned home from college for a visit with some old friends. And when they did meet up, they hit it off instantly and against all odds committed their lives to each other. On a warm summer day in Florida, her father walked her down the aisle to her future husband and was married by her grandfather, a retired pastor, under a mossy oak canopy. The reception took place in an historic schoolhouse, the Buckingham Community Center, where guests mixed and mingled with the couple and enjoyed an Italian inspired dinner buffet, lemon cake pops and an ice cream bar. The couple then jetted off to their honeymoon in Naples, FL and Key Largo. Images by Cape Coral wedding photographer Set Free Photography!
The guests entered the ceremony and the bride started the walk down the aisle under an arbor handmade by her aunt. The couple then exchanged vows under a mossy oak canopy.
The venue was an historic schoolhouse, allowing the couple to have fun with the setup. The bride had many pretty and outrageous ideas for the tablescapes, and her aunt, from Isn’t She Lovely Florals, took her ideas and just ran! It made the whole reception amazing.
FOOD & CAKES
Instead of cocktails and appetizers for the cocktail hour, guests were treated to wine and a cheese table complete with pasta salad, cheese, crackers and fruit. A dear family friend of the bride made their delicious cake, which was a vibrant purple and covered in succulents. She also made the groom’s cake, which was designed to look like a snare drum since the groom plays the drums.
