With a broccoli-clad bouquet in hand, Mia said “I do,” to Doug at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market on a rainy day in Florida. The sweet couple chose a venue where they had spent many Saturday dates throughout their relationship. Every detail of their wedding was a reference to a sentimental aspect of their years as a couple. Nate + Lori captured the remarkable day in two mediums, both still images that move you and film that stops you in your tracks.
Mia and Doug
Winter Park Farmer’s Market, Winter Park, Florida
Doug and I really just wanted the wedding to be inspired by the people we love most. We wanted every guest to feel important and loved. We wanted every thing in the room to be genuine. I wanted people to walk into our wedding and say, “This looks like Mia AND Doug” not just Mia.
Our wedding was at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market, where we loved to have Saturday morning dates. Our centerpieces were jasmine, succulents and rosemary from the farmer’s market planted in jars and tea cups from local thrift shops. My beautiful florist even put broccoli in my bouquet! The story is that our first valentines day, we were just in between friends and dating. Doug wanted to do something special but not scare me away. I’m a vegetarian, so he thought leaving a hand-made bouquet of broccoli on my doorstep would do the trick.
The whole night was just such a celebration of our extraordinary community and the artist hearts that dwell within it, all which are so dear to Doug and I’s story.
To get the full effect of how special Mia and Doug’s wedding was, stop and watch their wedding film!
When the officiant announced that Doug could kiss his bride, we kissed and the crowd cheered. All of a sudden the crowd began to cheer even harder. We opened our eyes and confetti was falling all around us! Our ushers had set off confetti cannons.
