Wed in sunny Florida’s Palm Valley Gardens, Seminole sweethearts Ashley and Paul made sure their beloved Florida State’s garnet and gold made a fashionable showing at their big day. The groom paired his spirited bow tie with the bride’s Badgley Mischka heels for a rich, jewel-tone palette. A+ for school spirit, y’all! Ashley donned a Romona Keveza gown and toted a monochromatic bouquet by Lori Parker to contrast her maids’ colorful blooms and Alfred Sung frocks. Photographer Jenn Hopkins was standing by to capture every detail of the outdoor ceremony, planned by Jennifer Corrente. We have to say the pops of blue – from the groom’s blazer to the handmade straws – made us fall in love with this Florida wedding all over again. For assistant textile buyer Ashley, the blue fabric swatch-inspired escort cards could not have been a more perfect – or Southern! – touch to their celebration. For a sweet ending to their Florida nuptials, the newlyweds treated guests to a do-it-yourself s’mores station. Umm, yes, please?
A compliment for someone’s husband: You sure didn’t pick up no crooked stick.
