A Simple, Vintage Wedding at The White Room in St. Augustine, Florida

Alex and Bobby's wedding accents historic St. Augustine with the just the right blend of vintage and simplicity. The day started with an intimate first look and walk around the area’s cobblestone streets before the couple joined their guests for a rooftop ceremony overlooking the Matanzas River and a black-and-white indoor reception at The White Room. “Between the venue’s vintage furniture, exposed brick and beautiful rod iron balcony railing, there wasn't much work left to do,” says Alex. “We found a picture of a wedding online that was the inspiration for our decor: old books for centerpieces; antique typewriters; lots of candles; rustic lanterns; and old family photos. A library-esque type feel.” With this in mind, Jade Violet Wedding and Event Floral Boutique designed each mismatched centerpiece alongside stacks of vintage books, pink roses and white hydrangeas in gold vases and tea light candles in clear glass votives for an understated yet classic look. One other must-see detail was the cake! Resting on a black vintage suitcase draped with pearls, Small Town Cake Shop baked a three-tier ivory confection decorated with hand-written antique-style pages on each tier. Brooke Images captured these details and more in the photos below (including a fun mismatched black wedding party). For future couples, Alex shares a tip: “Anything can help, but it is your day. Enjoy it. Roll with the punches. Remember nothing is perfect, but that's what makes it all fun and interesting.”
