Briana & Taylor’s wine-inspired outdoor wedding took place last November at Casa Lantana in Brandon, Florida.
How they met: Briana and Taylor’s love story is every bit humorous just like them. Mutual friends of theirs invited them to celebrate one of their co-workers birthdays. They bonded over some Tom Petty music that was playing and talked a bit here and there throughout the night, but left without exchanging numbers. Then two days after they met, along with a Facebook friend their love story started. 4 years later on a trip to California, Taylor popped the question. They spent the rest of their day vineyard hopping and that is where their wedding theme was born.
From the photographer: Due to their love of being outdoors they knew that their wedding space needed to be spacious and natural. Casa Lantana did just that. It fit all of their wants and needs. Their ceremony in the “forest” reminded them of their trips to Michigan on the brides family vacation home. They wanted to bring a piece of their home to the wedding and the arch was created by the brides father from a tree on their property! The décor was filled with white flowers and tons of greenery to keep with the natural, rustic and wine theme. The tables were all labeled by different variations of wine. Their reception under the stars was lite with some beautiful string lights and guests danced on the grand lawn for hours. Having a good time at the reception was very important to the bride and groom so their choice of DJ was extremely important. And he did a wonderful job keeping the dance floor packed.
