A Discussion of Details
Tailored Twig had the opportunity to once again work at the spectacular Ringling on the banks of Sarasota Bay.
Kenzie and Max’s wedding took full advantage of this magnificent, sprawling estate that can host events in several unique locations.
Their waterfront wedding ceremony was hosted on the terrace of the Ca’ d’Zan Mansion where the couple exchanged their wedding vows just steps from the mansions boat dock.
With the sun setting on Sarasota Bay a simple elegant hedge wall of lush white and green botanicals, snapdragons, white veronica and white delphinium added height and texture to this organic focal point.
Ghost chairs lined the terrace showcasing the beautiful natural materials and stonework. Accents of white florals, greenery and soft cream-colored pillar candles in glass cylinders appeared to float down the aisle.
Kenzie’s lush hand-tied bridal bouquet of white peonies, garden roses, white veronica, soft creamy Quicksand roses, lisianthus, dusty miller and olive branches accented the sweetheart neckline of her wedding gown’s lace bodice.
After the wedding ceremony and cocktails on the mansion’s terrace, guests were transported across the property to the Ringling Museum Courtyard for dinner and dancing.
A waterfall of twinkling lights danced above several long, clear tables with acrylic ghost chairs. Long, low centerpieces of white and soft greenery crept the length of the tables; dotted with candles they appeared to float along the tables.
The center tables were surrounded by a mix of round and rectangular guest tables draped in pale pink with sparkling votive candles. Tall centerpieces anchored each end of the long tables with smaller vessels of soft white flowers and votive candles dotted the tablescape. The round tables each held a simple, elegant centerpiece of flowers in shades of cream, white and soft greenery each one adding interest with unique textures.
Crystal chandeliers hanging from the trees and clear glass elements paired with soft white flowers created a luxurious outdoor reception under the stars.
We wish Kenzie and Max a lifetime of happiness; our Tailored Twig design team was thrilled to be part of your wedding day.

Our Tailored Twig design team loved partnering with the planners at Jennifer Matteo Event Planning for Christian and Robb’s Sarasota wedding at the Ringling Museum.
The rich pink hues of this wedding design paired perfectly with the deep rich tones of the bougainvillea that surrounded the outdoor wedding venue.
Our floral creations began with Christian’s full, lush bridal bouquet. This hand tied bouquet was wrapped in white lace to pair with her wedding gown. An assortment of large full roses including deep hot pink, white “Eskimo”, and light pink “Ester” roses blended with the textures of the pink Veronica, tropical ginger, ivy and seeded eucalyptus.
The bridesmaids were dressed in brilliant deep raspberry gowns and carried stem wrapped bouquets of roses in softer shades of pink and white that complimented the tones of the groomsmen’s elegant boutonnieres.
The outdoor wedding ceremony at dusk was held under a simple wooden arch wrapped in a thick, lush garland of greens washed in a soft light to accent the couple as they exchanged their wedding vows.
The lawn of the Ringling Museum was filled with round tables draped in clean crisp white linens. The focal points were unique metallic toned vessels bursting with tropical ginger, Queen Anne’s Lace, ranunculus in shades of pink and light peach as well as pink and white spray roses.
Gold chiavari chairs, clear table numbers with gold rims and gold charger added a little shimmer to play with the rich pink tones.
A four-tiered modern wedding cake was brushed in gold leaf and shades of pink with a cascade of simple pink spray roses and ivy tips.
Congratulations Christian and Robb, our Tailored Twig team was thrilled to be part of your luxurious Sarasota destination wedding.

The Rialto Theatre located in the historic Tampa Heights section of Tampa was the perfect setting for Matt and Chelsea’s wedding.
The exposed brick walls and plaster accents created a rustic backdrop that our Tailored Twig team enhanced with unique floral and decorative elements.
A custom wedding suite of vellum covered invitations, contemporary matte gold envelopes with random splatters provided a beautiful color pallet for accents and details thought the wedding.
A canopy of market lights shimmered above guest’s heads during Chelsea and Matt’s wedding ceremony and again as the room was repurposed for their wedding reception.
The floral focal structure was one of our favorites, a custom metal and wood arbor adorned with garland and blooms.Gold tone urns created columns which were topped with rustic wooden cross beams and wrapped with thick ropes of greenery, huge full king proteas, seeded eucalyptus and burgundy roses.
In front of the arbor, the couple’s wedding ceremony was set with clear Ghost Chairs and an aisle that was dotted with chunky pillar candles and greenery.
Chelsea carried a stunning bouquet of lush greens, seeded eucalyptus, burgundy tipped king protea, pink wax flower and burgundy roses and dahlias.
The color story beginning with the ceremony continued into the wedding reception. Not only did the beautiful couple stand below the arbor to say their ‘I Do’s’ but it was then moved to serve as the backdrop to their sweet heart table.
The reception was set with a mixture of rustic wooden feasting tables and tables draped in black velvet. Place settings were designed with gold reef charger plates, matte black dishes, gold flatware, pressed glass goblets, gray hemstitch napkins, and custom marble print design menus.
Tall vases of King protea, seeded eucalyptus, deep burgundy, antique pink and cream roses, pink wax flower, white freesia , burgundy dahlias created centerpieces that floated above the guest tables.
The organic textural elements and botanicals in deep pink and burgundy blended perfectly with the gold, black and grey tones throughout the historic theatre for the wedding of Chelsea and Matt’s dreams.
We were thrilled to work with this incredible couple as well as this team of Tampa wedding professionals.

Tailored Twig had the pleasure of working with Derek and Herman earlier this year on their stunningly beautiful wedding at the Historic Spanish Point in Osprey, Florida.
One of the major décor elements of the wedding reception was a long outdoor lounge area under a raised pergola.
The lounge incorporated unique layered elements beginning with creative textured area rugs, layered with collections of Windsor sofas and side chairs in black and white.
Sofas were appointed with throw pillows in a variety of styles and textures including black faux fur, bold black and white prints and shimmering gold for a pop of color.
Glass coffee tables and assorted side tables in gold, glass and marble were accented with textural floral creations keeping in the same black and white color palette.
A long low arrangement in an organic burled wood vessel overflowed with white spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and white wax flower.
Smaller side table pieces were adorned with a miniature urn in gold tones with deep ribbed texture, bursting with white astilbe, white wax flower and white spray roses.
The floral story that began in the lounge area continued into Derek and Herman’s wedding reception where tables were draped in white linen, layered with wide matte black table runners.
Large burnished metallic urns and smaller accent vessels held textural arrangements of white roses, wax flower, astilbe, craspedia and seeded eucalyptus that filled the length of the guest tables.
Our Tailored Twig team loved being able to work within this black and white color palette and allow the unique vessels and textural botanical elements to be showcased.
Thank you to all of the wedding professionals we had the opportunity to work with to bring Derek and Herman’s wedding to life.

Earlier this year our Tailored Twig design team paired with talented Sarasota wedding professionals to dress the Powel Crosley Estate in a palette of pinks and peaches.
Allie and Tim’s wedding at this historic estate that is situated on the Sarasota Bay was an incredible blending of textures and colors.
The bride carried a hand tailored bouquet of deep pink peonies, with pink and cream orange roses accented with seeded eucalyptus. Allie’s wedding party was dressed in blush and carried bouquets similar to hers, each adding gradually more of the lighter roses.
Guests were welcomed to the couple’s outdoor wedding ceremony at the edge of Sarasota Bay but metallic wire urns brimming in gradient shades of pink, peach and warm oranges. The unique arrangement included incredible king protea, soft roses, dusty miller, and snapdragons.
Rustic wooden church pews were adorned with soft throw pillows and bouquets of roses wrapped in ivory satin ribbon hung along the aisle.
Allie and Tim exchanged vows under a metal framed wedding arch draped in a thick lush rope of willow eucalyptus, which fluttered in the wind. Small nosegays of roses and protea dotted the rope adding elegant pops of color against the background of the water.
Their dinner was hosted under a breathtaking clear tent which provided an awesome view of the sunset and night sky.
Long wooden dining tables were lined with a simple lace runner which accented a tablescape of floating candles, white lanterns, and mercury glass votive cups. Brass and bronze toned modern geometric vessels incorporated single king protea blooms or small clusters of botanicals keeping in the color theme from their wedding ceremony.
Floating from the ceiling in the center of the tent were modern cylinder lights and floral blooms in pinks and peaches mixed with simple greenery. This contemporary ceiling treatment popped against the night sky and framed the dance floor below.
The blending of the traditional and contemporary, the soft and the textured created a one of a kind wedding against the backdrop of the Mediterranean mansion.
Thank you to all of the wedding professionals who brought Allie and Tim’s wedding to life.

Recently our Tailored Twig team had the pleasure of creating a space for Lauren and Grymes’ Tampa Bay wedding.
Not just any space, but the Gathering at the Armature Works; a massive 10,000 square foot industrial event space in the Tampa Heights neighborhood adjacent to the Hillsborough River.
This unique space blends the historical old brick elements of the Armature Works with modern elements, including exposed steel beams that reveal a 20 foot high ceiling.
Adding visual interest in a space this large is no small task and the key is creating unique focal points at multiple levels throughout the space.
Our vision was to create two floral chandeliers suspended from the ceiling that framed either end of the head table.
Our incredible Tailored Twig design team of Darin, Daniel and Nicole set out to tackle this immense design.
After the conceptualization, sketches and planning comes the “How To”:
The actual construction of the floral chandelier had to be done upright and hanging as this was an element that would be seen from underneath and had a 360 degree view.
Our designers constructed a tall metal shelving unit from which we could suspend the framing of the chandelier that measured close to six foot in length. Once the framing was secured we set about the task of adding greenery, seeded eucalyptus and magnolia leaves as the base to cover the mechanics and support system.
Then the fun began. The team began by inserting beautiful full blooms of antique pink hydrangea. The shading of pale green and burgundy tipped hydrangea added volume and depth.
The second step was layering in elegant Quicksand roses; a stunning beige rose that really popped next to the dusty greens of the antique hydrangea. Then came Baccara roses with their deep burgundy, almost ruby color, darker edges and velvety texture added warmth and set off the brilliant white cymbidium orchids bringing a level of sophistication to the chandelier.
We cannot wait to see the final images of Lauren and Grymes’ wedding to share the completed version of these breathtaking chandeliers and the other stunning design elements from their wedding day.
Earlier this year our Tailored Twig team had the honor of being invited to be part of a team of incredible wedding and event professionals to produce a styled shoot in Miami Beach; at the Villa Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the Versace Mansion.
This luxurious boutique hotel is built in the Mediterranean Revival style of architecture with all of the amazing opulence of the period.
The Versace brand is known for its innovative designs with flashy prints and bright colors. Creating luxurious, textured and inventive floral creations for the event spaces was our design teams’ dream.
We are so excited to share with you some of the behind the scenes images of the shoot as the designs came to life. From elegantly attired models to opulent gilded rooms we had palettes beyond our imagination.
The possibilities are amazing when styling a bride and groom in a space with a backdrop of inlaid floors, plaster reliefs and ornate murals.
Dressing the groom in a retro heather colored tuxedo and the bride in a Grecian style floral lace wedding gown with golden hues offered incredible opportunities to blend classic and very modern floral designs.
We accessorized the groom with a simple hand tailored boutonniere made up of a single bloom, greenery and a modern metallic element.
The stem wrapped bridal bouquet combined bold elements and tropical colors with softer more traditional florals. We creating interest by mixing the texture of blue thistle against the unique shapes of tropical blooms and lush pale pink cottage roses.
The gilded dining room with its ornately stenciled walls, oversized ivory and gold upholstered chairs, and a gold edged mirrored table longed for a pop of color and a textural organic element.
A tablescape of organic, natural wood and rustic modern vessels overflowing with pops of raspberry, peach and beige with long tendrils and coarse rustic touches created the needed balance against the shimmer and gold.
The second space was remarkably simple with pale colored, unadorned walls with a mosaic tile floor of flowers and topiaries. The space was set with a long rectangular table, modern lace tablecloth and clear acrylic chairs.
The floral design resembled a modern trellis with wooden cross pieces resting on tall slender bronze finished vases. Ornamental cabbage and lush greenery were accented with striking white roses, white and green tulips, thistle and smaller textural floral details in white, cream and pale green. The garden continued with randomly sized bronze containers filling the center of the table.
Our third Tailored Twig design blended a tall contemporary gold urn overflowing with soft white florals and we weaved in variegated white and pale green foliage. The stark branches with bold green botanicals snaked their way toward the gold scalloped ceiling.
Our design team relished in the opportunity to create so many vastly different, yet equally lush and luxurious floral creations for the same editorial styled shoot.
Thank you to the team of amazing professionals from across the country who came together to create this vision.
