{real wedding} michelle + colby's victorian porch wedding

My love for porch weddings continue with Michelle + Colby’s wedding. An intimate autumn courtyard wedding was followed by a cocktail hour on the front porch of the McKenzie House, an 1885 Victorian home located at the Sweetwater Branch Inn, a bed and breakfast in Gainesville, Florida.  The reception followed inside the house where the couple’s love of orchids was found throughout the Inn
 From Michelle, the bride: Colby and I painted clay pots orange and our florist used them for our orchid centerpieces.  Our venue, the beautiful and inviting Sweetwater Branch Inn, provided a unique opportunity for our closest friends and family to enjoy our wedding weekend with us.

  1. So quaint! A beautiful house. Such a cool concept. I looove her bouquet!

  2. Love Gainesville, love the Gators, love this wedding!

  3. oh MY. they are totally lovely...i'm completely ambivalent about Victorian and modern style...they're like...opposites, but i want them both in my life bigtime.

  4. ahhh, a porch wedding - so sweet and romantic. I loved the venue. Reminds me of our wedding venue - it was on the grounds of a historic B&B and had a wrap around porch and a staircase just like that one.

  5. There are just so many things about this wedding that is great. To mention some - great location, lovely photographs and great looking couple. Congratulation to you both.

  6. Loved the photographs. Especially the one of the chair with flowers and of the couple through the glass window of the door. Great work.

  7. Ohmigosh that house is AMAZING!!! And her flowers are soooo pretty!!

  8. So sweet! Love the "sweet home" elements of this wedding. Looks like it was an intimate, sweet and perfect celebration. :)
