A Discussion of Details
This past fall Tailored Twig had the pleasure of working with Sonia and LJ on their timeless and classic wedding at the amazing Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in downtown St Petersburg.
Sonia and LJ wanted to incorporate family into their wedding with a classic refined look. Using a color palate of rose gold, blush, cream and gold, our design team was able to create a look that would be timeless when the couple looked back on their wedding photographs.
Sonia’s beautiful hand tailored bridal bouquet consisted of white garden roses, white ranunculus, white peonies and eskimo roses with soft pink senorita and quicksand roses peeking out.
The handtied bridal bouquet was wrapped with a soft white textured ribbon. Tied to Sonia’s bouquet were two medallions that belonged to her grandparents who are no longer with us. Her grandmother and grandfather had gifted the medallions to each other on their 50th wedding anniversary.
Another sentimental accessory was her earrings, Sonia wore the earrings her father gifted her mother on their wedding day.
After their wedding ceremony at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church in Safety Harbor, the couple and their guests returned to the Vinoy Renaissance for a night of dinner and dancing.
The historic hotel is located on the Bayfront in downtown St Petersburg. This Mediterranean Revival hotel that originally opened in 1925 had the classic, timeless beauty the couple was looking for in their wedding design.
The wedding reception was hosted in the hotel’s Grand Ballroom with beautiful period detailing and a stunning Chihuly chandelier.
The couple sat at a sweetheart table inside a feature frame of thick, lush florals with hanging glass candle orbs. The frame was adorned with antique and white hydrangea, garden roses in pale blush and white as well as white ranunculus, ivory spray roses and seeded eucalyptus.
The tables for 250 wedding guests alternated between arrangements on tall gold and glass risers and low collections of flowers in gold mercury glass vessels. All of the arrangements included the same colors and specimen flowers found in the couple’s sweetheart table structure. Gold chivari ballroom chairs and soft gold lighting competed this stunning design.
The final design element was the thick cascade of flowers flowing down the couple’s five-tiered buttercream wedding cake. The quicksand and senorita roses added a warm glow to the cake and the addition of white freesia brought in a beautiful scent and texture.
Congratulations Sonia and LJ, we are glad you loved this classic floral design as much as our Tailored Twig design team enjoyed creating it.
