It’s no surprise that Florida tops the list for best destination wedding spots in the U.S.! Who can blame couples for wanting to experience their special day in our beautiful sunny state with our gorgeous beaches? And a wonderful couple from Lexington, Kentucky chose to do their wedding at the simply stunning Lido Beach Resort right here in Sarasota!
It is a wonderful property for a destination wedding. The hotel accommodates both large and small groups. Its flexible venue also boasts a sunset Terrace that will accommodate about 75 guests and has a picture perfect view of the gulf—ideal for the perfect beach wedding!
This wedding was right on the beach under one of our classic bamboo and fabric canopies. The aisle was lined with pretty purple orchids to make a grand entry for the magnificent bride!
The bride choose a hand tied bouquet of white hydrangea nested with mini calla lilies and roses. Very soft lavender Misteen Dendrobium orchids were also in the bouquet, which added just a hint of color, but not so much so to detract from the bride! Her bridesmaids were dazzling in coral and jade colored gowns; they glowed with color! They carried bouquets of purple hydrangea with coral roses and the soft lavender orchids. The purple mixed with the coral was a knock-out!
The precious moments of the day were captured by Villetto Photography. See the gallery below for all the fabulous photographs. His pictures are works of art!
The bride also worked with Finishing Touches by Tammy Gamso to help with her make-up and hair for her the day. Tammy is a one-of-a-kind artist and her talent shone through…all the brides love her!
The beauty of this wedding continued with the table centerpieces. They were simple and elegant: varying heights of cylinders with jade-colored gems in the base, submerged purple orchids and floating candles-perfection!
Working with this couple and all the vendors was simply a delight! We love what we do at Flowers by Fudgie and consider it our honor and pleasure to provide you with the best service for your day!
Here’s a quick snippet of an email we received from the bride of this wedding:
Becki, Amanda, and the rest of the Flowers by Fudgie staff did an amazing job with all of the flowers for my March 31, 2012 wedding. Thank you so much!
