Rustic Outdoor Wedding in Orlando

From Rania Marie Photography: The sweet and gorgeous couple, Maggie and Tripp, were married in the quaint St Andrews Catholic Church in Orlando, FL among their family and friends. Maggie’s parents were married in St. Andrews as well so it was just a very meaningful day for all! After their ceremony, we went back to the bride’s family strawberry farm, Brook Hollow Farm. If you haven’t been there to pick strawberries, you are truly missing out. For the reception, everything at their stunning home was beautifully styled and decorated with charming, rustic pieces from RW Events.

How did you two meet and how did he propose?We met at a bar in Atlanta. I’m 5’11 and Tripp is 6’4 so we could see each other over the crowd. I asked him where the ATM was and he walked me to it and we talked the rest of the night. Minor detail: I knew where the ATM was the whole time 😉 After dating for 4 years, Tripp got down on one knee and proposed to me in our driveway after I got home from work on a Friday. He then told me we were going to the mountains for the weekend and had the whole weekend planned with wine tastings at different wineries in North Georgia. He knew if he told me about the weekend trip ahead of time I would know something was up because he’s NOT a planner at all. It was so sweet that he planned the weekend.

Advice from Maggie, the bride:

What advice would you give other couples about the wedding planning process?

It’s your day. If you have a vision for your day don’t give up until you get it. Even if 9 bakers tell you they can’t make you a 3-tiered cookie cake, that 10th one will tell you they can. Also, I HIGHLY recommend getting a videographer and would recommend mine a million times over…like I would all my vendors. My Videographer and photographer helped paint the perfect picture of my day for me to re-live forever! And even though I’m super organized and detailed, a day-of Coordinator, like Katie from RW Events, will be EVERYTHING to you on your wedding day. You may think you’re organized but on your big day having someone else run the show is a must!

Is there any advice that you would give engaged couples about married life?

It’s not hard…It’s the best. You get a permanent roommate who loves you, how great is that?! We now have  a 7 month old and seeing both myself and my husband in her is the most amazing thing. Watching him become a dad made me fell in love with him all over again.
