A Bohemian Ranch Wedding at a Private Residence in Lakeland, Florida
Textured wood grain invitations, exposed farm tables and a remote waterfront ceremony all lent themselves to Emily Perryman (25) and William Hollis’s (28) simplistic rustic celebration. "We wanted to let nature speak for itself," Emily says. A close friend of the couple offered up their private barn for the 300-person party, which kicked off with a sentimental ceremony officiated by the groom’s mentor. Immediately after they were pronounced husband and wife, Emily and William walked up the aisle hand-in-hand to the tune of the Game of Thrones theme song. Dining tables were named for native Florida trees—a DIY detail that came together with the help of Emily’s bridal party. A sweet spread of boozy fruit pies—including whiskey cherry and bourbon pecan— was dished up for dessert, along with a single-tier hazelnut-espresso cake covered in dark chocolate.
