The New Year started off with a new status for Casey Goldman and Alex Sommerfeld: engaged! Almost four years after they met at medical school orientation at the University of Florida, the pair sought out JPC Event Group to help plan a wedding day filled with “rustic romance.” Garnish Event Design embellished Rustic Acres Farms with a color scheme of navy, gold, ivory, and pale pink with just a touch of burgundy. The whimsical evening called for the perfect dress — an Allure Couture gown — and the perfect, quiet moment between Casey and Alex before the celebration. “Our favorite part of the wedding came prior to the ceremony, during the Havdalah service and Ketubah signing,” Casey says. “Surrounded by our immediate family in a candlelit room, we were able to sign our marriage contract in an intimate and special way.”
