The rich, vibrant colors of a Florida sunset appealed to this Brooklyn, NY couple. Deep orange with splashes of hot pink lend themselves perfectly to the Ca’ d’ Zan location they chose. There are several areas on the Ringling property to exchange vows and this couple chose the Zodiac in front of the mansion. A simple aisle lined with hot pink rose petals was all that was needed with the magnificent mansion as the backdrop.
The bride carried a classic bouquet of creamy Vendella roses and soft taupe Sahara roses. Her attendants, dressed in short, light champagne colored dresses, carried bouquets of hot pink Ravel roses and orange Gerbera daisies – just the right “pop” of color against the dresses. Mothers wore corsages of white dendrobium orchids while boutonnieres were either ivory spray roses or a combination of hot pink and orange spray roses.
After the ceremony, friends and family strolled around to the terrace overlooking Sarasota Bay and enjoyed a breathtaking sunset while sipping cocktails. Guest tables on the terrace looked amazing with stately bronze candelabrum decorated with votives candles in globes and hot pink and orange roses with greenery down the stem. Candlelight was carried onto the table with 3 cylinders with hot pink rose petals and floating candles. The massive feasting table for the wedding party of 28 people was truly a show stopper. Cube arrangements of hot pink and orange roses and Gerbera daisies, various size cylinders with floating candles and larger cubes with hot pink hydrangea mounds ran the length of the 24 foot table. Flowers by Fudgie placed empty vases for the attendants bouquets to become part of the gorgeous tablescape.
