NATALIE + TOM STEP INTO THE LIMELIGHT | THE RINGLING MUSEUM | SARASOTA, FL
Natalie and Tom met at a mutual Friend’s Gasparilla Party on Davis Island, right here in Tampa Bay! Tom proposed at the stroke of midnight at The Vinoy following their friends’ Mallory and Matt Schowe’s wedding on September 4th. It is so sweet to see how this couple makes each other laugh and smile - they are truly in love! They enjoy attending concerts, going out to dinner and watching sports, especially football and Lightning games.
The bride loves pearls and wanted them included in her bouquet along with the hint of peach; hence, the Peach Juliette Garden rose with lots of pearl brooches and runners of pearls and pearl treatments on the handle. Also, a piece of the bride’s mom’s wedding gown was wrapped around the stems of the bouquet.
The ceremony arch was so romantic with peach, coral, blush and orange colors with a combination of blush hydrangea, Freespirit, Wedding Whisper, Amsterdam, garden roses and Babe orange spray roses. Natalie also loves gold so we pulled gold pedestals at the front and back of aisle with florals to match the arch were a perfect accent!
“Cutie” small tangerines were used to incorporate elements of citrus throughout the wedding decor at the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The most adorable tiny arrangements with the “cutie’s” as the vase with orange spray roses & peach hypericum berries graced the banquet tables, along with floral arrangements in gold mercury vases. Lots of candles were also important to the bride, and these were placed in gold terrariums. Also, gold votives were nested into glass holders filled with loose pearls. Overall there was a beautiful, lush full look running look down the tables with coordinating elements, but not all matching identically which created a romantic, elegant atmosphere on the Gulf of Mexico with the gorgeous Ca D’Zan mansion as the backdrop.
