Garden Styled Wedding Inspiration with Balloons

Today’s pretty styled shoot showcases a gorgeous, eclectic venue Waldo’s Secret Garden in Vero Beach, Florida. It is a private estate with a history rich in local heritage. Looking to showcase what a great venue it makes for weddings, they contacted Nicki + Chrissy with Vitalic Photo to design + photograph a styled shoot. They wanted a garden look that complimented the grounds but included some fun, modern touches. I love the balloon details they included in their design which totally fit the whimsical and eclectic feel of the property. Hope this helps for those of you sweet Florida couples in search of a unique + rustic venue!
