Gaylord Springs Golf Links Garden Inspired Wedding

Tori and Ethan celebrated their love with a garden-inspired wedding that left guests in awe. Abi & Co. and Lilian’s Florals, the dream team behind the transformation, turned Gaylord Springs Golf Links into a garden paradise with gorgeous floral arrangements and details covered in a breathtaking watercolor palette of soft pinks, greens and beautiful blues. A custom monogram consisting of all those pretty pigments took center stage, gracing everything from stationery to corn hole boards, welcome signs, seating charts, menus, and cocktail napkins. This thoughtful touch infused a personal and cohesive element, while bridesmaids donning mismatched dresses that added a touch of individuality and charm. Even with all these beautiful elements, it was perhaps Tori’s dad who contributed a unique and memorable layer to the celebration. His father of the bride speech captivated guests; leaving everyone with nothing but joy-filled hearts. Get ready to fall in love with these images captured by Brocoff Photography.
