Wanting their guests to feel carefree, Stacey and Tara chose a vintage carnival theme for their wedding, complete with a yellow, black, gray and white color palette.

Tara carried a bright yellow bouquet filled with roses, craspedia and gerbera daisies.
The couple chose not to have a traditional wedding cake, opting for a dessert bar filled with miniature size treats instead.
Simple centerpieces made from vintage glass bottles, pinwheels and yellow blooms topped guest tables. Small votives in Mason jars added a soft glow to the space.
Adorable tags in the wedding colors were tied to the bags of popcorn on the favor table.
Stacey and Tara dated for three years before Stacey proposed on a sand bar near Key West. She had the ring tied to a starfish and she asked me to spend the rest of my life with her, remembers Tara.
Stacey and Tara carried the theme throughout their day, with banners in their wedding colors decorating everything from the bar area to the favor table.
The couple chose Stone House at Stirling Ridge because of the beautiful grounds, fantastic food, and the rustic-meets-modern feel that they wanted for their wedding.
Black-and-white striped tablecloths and Mason jars filled with flowers and candles perfectly embodied the couple's vintage carnival theme.
Bags of popcorn (some salty, some sweet) were the perfect take home treat for guests. Stacey loves popcorn and it fit our theme, says Tara.
A vintage suitcase, surrounded by old family photos, was a lovely place for guests to leave cards for the newlyweds.
After rain squashed plans to have an outdoor ceremony, the couple tied the knot beneath a tent on the patio.
“It’s an absolutely beautiful gown,” Tara recalls of her black-and-white dress. “It had a sweetheart neckline and an all-feather skirt, with a high slit on the right side.” Stacey wore light gray linen pants with a matching vest and a light yellow button-down shirt.
The couple took a spin on the dance floor to Eddie Veddar's Breathe.
Stacey wore a billy ball (craspedia) boutonniere on the lapel of her gray vest, in keeping with the day's color palette.
