A Natural Wedding at Bonnette Banquet and Lodge in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
From wooden barn-door accents with roses to lush white bouquets, Kelly Noonan (30 and a physician) and Billy Gerlach’s (35 and a boat captain) neutral wedding was filled with natural charm. “Because we are native Floridians and love the outdoors, we stuck with our roots and had an old Florida-inspired rustic, vintage theme,” Kelly says. The day began with a sweet outdoor ceremony at Bonnette Banquet and Lodge, moved to a simple reception and ended with a festive sparkler exit. Southern Floral helped the couple accentuate their rustic venue and natural scenery with soft florals. “Beth did an incredible job,” Kelly says. Coral tea roses hung in glass orbs from the couple’s wedding arch as pink and white roses, scabiosa pods and seeded eucalyptus were draped across the top. Exposed-wood breakaway vases at the reception were filled with these flowers, plus white hydrangeas, pink delphiniums and yellow hypericum berries, which popped against the venue's exposed-brick walls. Vintage-style lanterns, tea cups and a mixture of candles, collected by Kelly and her mother, were placed around the room. Another standout detail was Kelly's wedding dress. She chose a white lace strapless wedding dress with a short train and intricately beaded silver belt. Jessica Bordner Photography captured these details and much more, below.
