Whimsical Rustic Spring Wedding in Florida

May 18

Tallahassee, Florida


Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We knew about this place first, and loved it but wanted to find something more wild. After searching all over Tallahassee we were just drawn back to Lichgate and its sweet cabin and huge live oak. It just looked like a fairytale.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

We loved the handmade bananagrams tiles laser cut by Matt’s brother and my best friend, Michael Taylor; the individually bought tea sets that we turned into candles (which were our favors), and the white lights strung over the reception, particularly over the dance floor and under the big tree.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

People say it all of the time, but seriously, get someone to run the wedding the day of. My best friend/MOH planned the entire wedding, but her and her boyfriend tag-teamed running the actual wedding that night. She had a schedule for everyone and everything. If she wasn’t there that day nothing would have run nearly as smoothly as it did. 

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

We keep randomly bursting out with, “It was so perfect, It was so beautiful!.” But the funniest part is, after all of the planning, we forgot to rent cups! So everyone drank out of champagne flutes!
