Joyful & Deeply Romantic Casa Lantana Wedding - Chelsea and Alex

Chelsea and Alex had an uplifting and emotional Casa Lantana wedding in Brandon with lots of greenery and romantic candlelight. There ceremony was in the woods and their reception on the lawn.

How many of you met your soulmate in 7th grade? They say you meet the one before the age of 16! Not only did Chelsea and Alex meet before the age of 16, they met before they even turned 14! They bonded between periods over playing the same video game and began a lifelong friendship. A friendship that lasted through high school, college, and even long distance. Their friendship grow into love and now they are husband and wife. Alex purposed in Chelsea’s favorite place, a small medieval village in Burgundy, after a bike ride. A perfect proposal for an endless love.

Chelsea got ready at Casa Lantana in room with lots of natural light coming from the huge floor to ceiling windows. Her dress by Vatana Watters from BHLDN was elegant and flowed effortlessly. The room illuminated bringing out every flawless texture, layer, and color in her dress. The ceremony was green with woodsy, earthy tones matching the mystical, towering trees surrounding them. The reception was outside, keeping the rustic woods land theme going. Their wedding was as natural and authentic as their love for each other.
