Elegant Purple and Orange Florida Wedding from Kismis Ink Photography with Cuban Heritage Influences

I'm so excited to start this week off as I have one of the most amazing weddings to share with you. This Tampa, Florida wedding was photographed by Mariana and Khaled of Kismis Ink Photography and is absolutely stunning and the details are captured perfectly. Not only is the brides dress a "super wow" one with beading and a feathery style but wait until you see the wedding cake. Let's get started with some photos of Nicole and Keily's wedding and then more details on the special day . . .

Nicole's purple feathered high heels and feathered-fascinator {seen a few photos down} are pure gorgeousness.

Loving the details on the wedding gown and don't you just love Nicole's purple garter that matches her shoes so perfectly?

Nicole got ready for her wedding in the Bridal Suite of the Don Vicente. This historic inn was built in 1895 and features Persian rugs, ornate furniture, and lacy, elaborate cast iron balconies. Miriana says "Nicole and Keily's first look seems as if it's a scene from an old romantic Spanish film".

The church Nicole and Keily married in opened in 1905 and most of the church's interior design is just as it was a century ago with the Romanesque architecture and seventy stunning stained glass windows.

Nicole is the daughter of Cuban immigrants and their reception was held at the The Cuban Club which was once a unifying force in the Cuban community. Aren't the feathered centerpieces amazing? So different, yet perfect for the setting of this wedding. And, that cake? WOW!!! Loving the bling between the layers.

Have to send Mariana a HUGE thank you for letting me share this spectacular wedding with you today.

A Purple and Orange Fall Wedding with Dancing Pumpkins

The fall wedding of Nicole and Jason is so perfect to share with you today on Halloween. Not only does it feature purple and orange which are great colors for the day - but there's even dancing pumpkins. During the wedding the groom's cousin told a story about when her sister married a few years earlier she had wanted to have pumpkins on the table. Her mother had told her she wasn't spending that much money for a Halloween party so the pumpkin idea couldn't be used. As a surprise, Jason and his cousins got together and came out in pumpkin suits and started dancing. Jason's cousin decided to bring the pumpkins to his wedding with Nicole too. When they came out, The Monster Mash started. The gorgeous photography is by Shannon Lee Images.

Tangerine Orange and Aqua Blue Wedding Inspiration

Today I want to welcome Sara of Burnett's Boards who is here to share one of her beautiful inspiration boards with us. With tangerine tango being the Pantone Color of the Year, I just fell in love with this board when I saw it. The lush bouquet is just stunning and the orange fluffy pom poms over the lounge area are super pretty. If you haven't visited Sara's site yet, it's a definite must - you will love her inspiration.
