A Discussion of Details
To say that Emily and Robert’s wedding was out of this world would be an understatement. Their beautiful Sarasota wedding at Selby Gardens is definitely very different from anything our Tailored Twig team has showcased on our blog.
This Star Wars themed wedding could not be more perfect for this week.
Emily’s hand tailored bridal bouquet was an explosion of delicate trumpet shaped purple and white Picasso calla lilies wrapped in delicate lace reflecting her wedding gown.
Robert’s boutonniere included a single Picasso calla lily, veronica and a textural accent, the perfect accompaniment to his navy-blue tuxedo.
A banyan tree on the south side of the Selby gardens set the backdrop for their wedding ceremony.
A geometrically shaped metal arbor was the foundation for a unique, perfectly themed wedding ceremony structure. Draped in swirling banyan root, lush green amaranthus and purple and blue dendrobium orchids, the ceremony structure was elegantly tied to the Star Wars theming.
Wedding guests enjoyed the Rainforest before moving to the north side of the gardens and the Michael’s On The Bay Ballroom for dinner and dancing.
The ballroom was set with soft lush navy blue linen, layered with geometric gold charger plates, navy blue napkins and custom menu cards. Gold and black flatware, gold rimmed stemware, mercury glass votive candles and high gloss black chiavari chairs added additional shimmer and dimension to the décor.
Collections of uniquely textured botanicals made the room come alive, layering color, texture and interesting materials. Our Tailored Twig designers began with unique black ceramic and gunmetal vessels with interesting lines and detailing.
Each table was uniquely appointed with hand tailored floral collections including soft pink spiked King protea, dianthus, white campanula, snapdragons, and thistle as well as Inca gold leucadendron, blushing protea, bells of Ireland, open cut calla lilies, pepper berry and Picasso calla lilies. Taller arrangements were draped in green amaranths adding long lines and interesting visual.
Multi-level lighting that included shimmering candlelight, pin spots on centerpieces and soft up lighting to wash the walls in light all enhanced the dramatic look of this wedding décor.
While it does not include any floral accents, we have to share this fantastic five-tiered wedding cake that completed the Star Wars theme of Emily and Robert’s wedding.
Congratulations Emily and Robert, may the force be with you!
Thank you to all of the talented wedding professionals that brought this unique wedding to life.
