{Real Wedding} Jennifer & Charlie by Life's Highlights

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA! I have so much to blog about but have had absolutely no time to! (I literally fell asleep ontop of my computer last night trying to get some blogging in after work, crossfit, and making dinner! Didn't happen!) Coming soon, I have some new recipes and a recap of the Electric Run 5k! I also have another curating your closet post coming our resident fashion expert, Kim!

In the meantime, I'm excited to share Jennifer and Charlie's  beautiful fall wedding shot by Life's Highlights.

This gorgeous palette of sangria, ruby, and saffron was a perfect complement to the couple's request for a Tampa cigar box theme, which Windsor Event Studio certainly delivered. The escort card tags seen below were attached to mini jute bags stamped with vintage mailing labels and coffee cups as a nod to the famous Cuban Coffee offered in Ybor City, and each was filled with chocolate-covered espresso beans as gifts for the guests.

Mason jars filled with roses, orchids, and colorful croton leaves lined the aisle, and even the ring bearer carried a cigar box! The reception tables were draped with saffron linens and wine-colored napkins, and each one featured varying cigar box centerpieces. Even the votive candles were wrapped with vintage cigar box label prints!

Guests dined on traditional Cuban food of pulled pork, mojo grilled chicken, yellow rice, black beans, and Cuban bread, and danced all night long to the high energy music of a live band. This is one wedding I would have loved to attend!
