Florida bride Ali needed just one word to sum up her wedding: magical. We couldn’t agree more. This wedding is Southern sophistication at its finest, y’all! My breath was gone after just one look at Belathée Photography’s timeless images and those luscious white peonies, courtesy of Parrish Designs. And then I saw the attire. I have a feeling we’re going to be hard-pressed to find a better dressed groom than Mook with his cream jacket, crisp black bow tie and – wait for it – those shiny, shiny gold buttons! The bride, not to be outdone, wowed in an asymmetric Vera Wang gown and classic lace-trimmed veil. Put these two in a real life fairytale, folks. I’m in love. Though an impending thunderstorm turned Ali + Mook’s Florida nuptials into a swift four-minute ceremony, the newlyweds had no trouble drawing out their elegant Kampong Gardens reception into an all-night affair. Cynthia Seaman of Lasso the Moon not only planned the rose-gold affair but also baked the couple’s chic coconut cake.
