This wedding featured a gorgeous elegant tropical theme—lots of tropical greenery with pops of white flowers set the stage for this day! For starters, the invite and other printed materials such as the dinner menu all had tropical Monstera leaves on them so we carried these leaves throughout the day, which created a great impact!
For the ceremony, the bride walked down the stairway lined with lanterns and greenery to the loggia where the couple was married on the stairs. The natural arch on the loggia had tied-back draping provided by Affairs in the Air and we did floral sprays with large Monstera leaves and other tropical foliage with open Playa Banca roses and white dendrobium orchids to flank the couple. It was an incredible look!
The bridal bouquet was absolutely a statement! It was filled with Monstera leaves, Aralia, Ruscus, variegated Calathea leaves for greenery with Playa Blanca roses, mini Calla lilies, and Ranunculus. The bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets filled with tropical leaves, Playa Blanca roses, and wax flowers...they were a perfect complement to the bride's bouquet. And the groom wore a classic double spray white rose boutonniere.
The reception was on the stunning and lush lawn with the Sarasota Bay behind them...such a perfect setting! We provided gold footed bowls for the guest reception tables with a similar look to the bouquets as they were filled with tropical foliage and all-white flowers and each centerpiece was surrounded by gold votives. These same flowers with ruscus greenery trailed down the side of the cake. We love wedding cakes we get to dress up with flowers and greenery! And the evening ended back on the loggia with dancing...it was a magical wedding in every way!
