This bride babe did it all—from thrifting decor and bringing in elements of her own home, to putting together the most rockin’ look for her day. Spoiler alert: Her Reclamation Design Co dress is free-spirited bridal goals! We’re totally obsessed and especially thankful Northern Native Photography was there to capture every detail! If you’ve ever said, “I was born in the wrong era” and are looking to bring your groovy spirit generation into your wedding day vibe, look no futher! We can’t wait for you to gather all the inspo from Zoee and Paul’s sweet day at Honey Creek Camp.

The Couple:

Zoee + Paul

The Wedding:

Waverly, Georgia

All of our vendors were insanely talented! One that I will mention was Kelli Woodell Fletcher. She designed our wedding “Brand” and invitations and killed it. She made my wildest dreams come true.

I have always wanted to get married at a camp. Just go somewhere, with our people, be together, and get married. And that’s exactly what we did. Honey Creek retreat center was perfect for us. I stepped on the property + immediately cried. It just felt right. It’s nestled beneath Trees filled with Spanish moss + most building are “A-frame” which is my dream. It fit every part of our vision, even down to worshipping together the night before + having sleepovers in camp style bunk beds all week.

I wanted to mimic some of my favorite things about 70s boho fashion. I knew I wouldn’t be able to just walk into any bridal store + find what the dress bc the style I wanted wasn’t typical + also, I’m plus size! When I found Reclamation I knew that was my designer! She catered the dress to my every measurement. And when I received the dress in the mail, it blew my mind with how perfect it was. I loved the flow, I loved the sleeves, I loved the fringe. I loved everything. 

We really wanted to be as stress free as possible. We just wanted to be married and be able to live each moment on our wedding day, and enjoy our time with each other + the people we love. Also, our date was also the date that my late parents got married almost 40 years earlier.

Our ceremony was so special. Both of us have brothers who are pastors, so they both officiated our wedding. Some of our closest friends did the music, and did it perfectly. We chose to write our own vows which turned out to be one of my favorite decisions we made. That made it so much more meaningful to us as we looked into each other’s eyes and made covenant. Also, I lost both of my parents within the past couple years + we were able to personalize things to pay tribute to them in small ways. We all cried like big babies!

Our photographer, Cassie, was a dream. From our initial email, we just clicked and knew it was meant to be. She was so laid back + fun, and he talent speaks for itself. She captured every part (even the days leading up to it) perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for anybody better.

We wanted the overall vibe of the day to be chill, laid back, and focused on us + our people. I’ve always said I was born in the wrong era. I’m a 70s child at heart. So that’s where colors, decor, inspiration came from. Basically, everything was just transplanted from our house + local thrift stores.

Colorful Italian Indian Wedding at Il Borro

July 8, 2020 | brooke

Freena and Harrison always knew they wanted to get married in Tuscany—it was where they went on their first trip together and got engaged at a castle not far from their wedding venue! Il Borro provided an authentic Tuscan experience, a place where all of the guests could stay together, and a place with multiple locations for various events. The couple hired Distinctive Italy Weddings to help them plan and create the three-day wedding weekend of their dreams. From the magical ceremony and reception decor to Freena and Harrison’s gorgeous ceremony outfits, we’re totally swooning over every detail! We can’t wait for you to fall in love with every photo Studio Rossini captured.

The Couple:

Freena & Harrison

The Wedding:

Il Borro, Tuscany

We knew that no matter what, our wedding weekend would be so special to us. Our focus was actually the experience our guests would have. We were asking people to travel all the way to Italy for us and we wanted to make sure that every event was fun and special for everyone.

Harrison and I wrote our vows together. We chose to do a back-and-forth for our vows where we made promises to each other and each vow was related to the one made by the other. It was personal and also made us feel very supported by each other as we took turns speaking. We were also a bit shy about being too personal with our vows, so this let us speak our true feelings without feeling exposed.

Harrison and I take equal credit in the planning of our wedding – it’s not for all couples, but it felt like our project to start our lives together. Over the course of our three day wedding, we had 8 events – a lot to manage! We made a list of everything we wanted at each event, and the overall ideas we had for each day. We also made sure to write things down whenever we thought about them so we wouldn’t forget and we could discuss whenever we had a chance. As much as we enjoyed wedding planning, we also set aside times that we were not allowed to discuss the wedding – we found these time-outs were very important, especially when we were starting to stress!

The whole weekend was absolutely unforgettable. We have our favorite moments from each day, but the most special moment was on the final night when we decorated our traditional Italian wedding cake together, then cut the cake, toasted each other, and turned around to watch the most amazing firework display we’ve ever seen. Even though we were surrounded by our friends and family, in the moment it very much felt like we were the only two people in the world – it was magical.
