Sunken Gardens will be forever one of our favorite venues! And the mix of amazing florals with the Florida sun peaking through made this one extra special. Here are just a few of our favorite images from this wedding day.
From Josh and Nicole:
What do you love most about each other?
What I love most about Josh is his thoughtfulness. He is always planning ways, both big and small to show me how much he cares and to make me feel loved.
What I love the most about Nicole is her smile. She always finds ways to make me enjoy each day more through laughter together.
What was the most memorable part of the wedding day for each of you:
Josh’s most memorable part of the day was dancing together as husband and wife with all of our friends and family. One of Nicole’s most memorable parts of the day was spending time walking through the gardens after the ceremony to take photos together just the two of us.
Do you have any advice for couples currently planning a wedding?
When planning your wedding, try to prioritize what’s most important and dedicate your budget accordingly. For us, it was photography/videography and florals. Do your research and preview their work before making these important choices.
