Sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate with plans for an outdoor wedding in Sarasota! This Georgia couple’s ceremony was originally slated to be in the lovely Sarasota Ritz-Carlton’s Healing Garden. But when the wind and rain forced a change in plans, the Ritz staff and the other wedding professionals on scene came together to transform an available ballroom into a gorgeous, romantic setting for the wedding ceremony.
The bride walked down an aisle lined with tall, glass cylinders glowing with rose petals and floating candles. The couple was framed by two large arrangements of all red roses for the ceremony. Flowers by Fudgie called in extra staff who brought brass floor candelabra to add dimension to the hastily-created indoor ceremony site.
The reception was held in another ballroom where Fudgie’s supplied elevated table arrangements set on tall glass cylinders using white stock and dendrobium orchid sprays. The alternating tables each had a glass cylinder with a submerged white cymbidium orchid. These arrangements were surrounded by various-sized clear glass cubes bearing votive candles to add atmosphere. The use of high and low arrangements throughout the room gave it more visual interest in this large-sized room, and thrilled the couple and their guests!
We worked together with the wedding coordinator, Nicole Kaney of NK Productions, and Barbara Banks who provided us with the photographs seen here.
