Marie Selby Gardens Wedding

Marie Selby Gardens Wedding.

Rachel and Zach planned a colorful and inspiring wedding at Sarasota’s Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Their destination spring wedding was a bright, outdoor event that combined rustic romance and nature's beautiful bounty.

From the outset, guests knew they were in for a vivid celebration thanks to the couple’s lively, floral-inspired invitation.

Bride Rachel’s look was simple and chic. She wore a sheath white gown with a modern neckline, soft train and beautiful button detail down the back. Her hair was loosely curled and she wore soft, natural makeup.

The bouquet, boutonnieres and floral arbor all beamed with radiant color thanks to the couple’s bold choices. Roses, hydrangea, berries, ferns and more all combined for a texture-filled, breathtaking display.

After the ceremony, they took their first photos as husband and wife. Then the entire party retreated to a gorgeous outdoor reception, full of Florida flair.

Place settings were created with white napkins and sprigs of fern, while the tablescape echoed the rustic, floral inspiration from the ceremony.

Nothing says “Florida” quite like bright colors and warm weather, and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens was an incredible spot to capture the magic of Rachel and Zach's outdoor wedding. From the invitations to the place settings, they were immersed with botanical bliss. One thing was certain: the only element more abundant than color that day in Sarasota was romance.
