When this couple moved to Florida they knew they were destined for an outdoor wedding. The special day filled with natural greens and lots of candlelight. But this wedding was more than just beautiful. The fun-loving spirit of the couple was apparent throughout the entire event. From the patterned bridesmaid dresses to the the funky photo booth, this wedding had it all. Here are some of our favorite outdoor wedding ideas for your Jewish ceremony.
The First Look
Whether a bride or groom choose to do a first look or not, it is always amazing to see their faces as they look at each other for the first time on their wedding day. This first look was playful and loving. You could tell the bride and groom were just so excited to start their lives together.
The bride made the first look extra special by handing off a little black book to her husband-to-be. She wanted to start this marriage with no secrets from her partner! And what a fun way to do it.
Fun Wedding Party
The groomsmen each had matching flasks that read “Best Day Ever” and began the wedding with a toast. And while you couldn’t see them under their classy suits, they brought a little fun into their attire with hip, rainbow socks.
The bridesmaids’ dresses also added to the excitement. The girls were dressed in two color palettes, one black and the other a beautiful pattern! Often bridesmaids dresses are one color, so the multicolored patterned dresses were a welcome surprise!
Candles and lanterns lined walkways and dotted tables at this outdoor wedding. (We even spotted a few Kate Aspen tea light holders!) The warm lighting was a perfect fit for the romantic and natural feel of the day.
As this wedding was outdoors, they decided to make greenery a focus of the decor. Leafy greens were present in the bridal bouquets, the groomsmen’s boutonnieres, all over the tables and even in the ceremonial chuppah. And with greenery being named the 2017 Pantone color of the year, we expect to see this trend popping up more and more.
But this wedding was about more than just beautiful decor. It was about celebrating love with the people you love. And the celebration included a ton of fun elements like a decked out photo booth, special “Berry Happy Together” cocktail, and dancing shoes!
And when you danced until you couldn’t dance anymore, the wedding was ready to keep you cozy and relaxed with blankets and comfy couches. This special event truly had it all!
