Happy Halloween! Celebrating with some Halloween wedding inspiration...

I love Halloween.  It's one of my favorite holidays and the preparations around here can get as frantic and chaotic as the days before Christmas.  We got to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party this year, which is always a good time.  We were super busy in the days leading it up to it, getting our costumes ready... we went as the War Doctor and Rose Tyler/The Moment's Interface, super nerdy costumes!  Not quite as recognizable as our costumes last year, the 11th Doctor and the Tardis, but the people who did know what we were were super excited about it.  Last year, we were like movie stars.  Both fun!

Anyway,  I'm getting sidetracked.  I'd love to have a Halloween wedding.  Whether it happens for me remains to be seen, but either way, I thought I'd celebrate by putting together some Halloween wedding inspiration.

I have another variation on a Halloween Wedding bumping around in my head, so maybe I'll be back after the fact with another mood board, but for now, here's a start!  I like a subtle theme: pumpkins, lots of grey and black, shimmering metallics, candles, and a few spiderwebs and coffins here and there.

And I can't talk about Halloween weddings without sharing my favorite inspiration photo from Mary + Stefan's Artsy Halloween Wedding on Green Wedding Shoes....


Happy Halloween! Boo to you!

Leu Gardens Weddings

So last week, I wrote about Leu Gardens, a great Central Florida day trip.  While researching to write that post, I found lots of images of weddings there!  So this week, I thought I'd share what a great wedding venue it is... in addition to a fun place to visit!

Florida Day Trips: Leu Gardens


One of the perks of living in Central Florida is the doable-day-trip proximity of so many fun things to do.  About an hour away from my house is one of these great options, the Harry P Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida.  I got to visit for the first time not too long ago and I was super surprised to find this 50 acre garden oasis right in the heart of Orlando.

Leu Gardens include a visitor center and gift shop, The Leu House Museum, Art at Leu Gardens (sculptures throughout the Gardens), a gazebo, a graveyard, a cottage, and, of course, acres of gardens, including citrus, herbs, roses, bamboo, oak trees, magnolias, and lots of lots of camellias.
