A Discussion of Details
Our Tailored Twig design team was part of an editorial collaboration showcasing CAVU, a Tampa Heights flexible event venue.
CAVU is part of a growing number of industrial event spaces located just outside of downtown Tampa. The exposed brick, polished concrete floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and storefront windows of the historic 1920’s automobile showroom blended beautifully with the chic, California inspired bohemian vibe for this collaboration.
The flexible event space allowed our team to utilize the open spaces with white walls and natural wood tones as a neutral canvass for an organic ceremony décor.
Light colored wooden church pews created an extra wide aisle that was accented with a series of three copper toned vessels on each side of the aisle. The vessels increased in size as they lead you to the ceremony structure.
The vessels overflowed with textural creations of air plants, white roses, snowberries, fringed white tulips and dusty miller.
The unique copper wedding structure formed in the shape of a home was adorned with a asymmetric covering of botanicals. The white, soft green and grey color story was continued in these stunning arrangements. Each contained a brilliant pop of orange amaryllis and the texture of the agonis branches were added to draw in the eye.
A lounge area was created to enhance the space to be used for a cocktail reception. Set against a background of brick, exposed wiring and vintage garden structures; the mixture of vintage leather seating, unique spindled wooden chairs, woven and fur throws created cozy, comfortable seating.
A coffee table arrangement of green trick dianthus, curly willow branches, dusty miller, snowberries, dreamy white breanthus and a touch of orange amaryllis in an industrial metal urn accented the lounge space.
Our Tailored Twig design team took full advantage of the natural light streaming in through the showroom windows. The direct lighting of the larger windows paired with the filtered light of the smaller transom windows added depth to the tablescape.
We worked against the backdrop of a wall filled with carriage lanterns and exposed wood. The tablescape included long organic wood bench seating, vintage chartreuse curved back chairs and antique wooden dining table.
The dramatic tablescape combined unique geometric vessels in organic, rustic and polished materials, taper candles in wrought iron candlesticks blended with air plants, white bouvardia, ranunculus, white fringed tulips, green trick dianthus, David Austin garden roses, snow berries and warm orange colored amaryllis plants.
Layered place settings with orange satin knotted napkins, custom menu cards and copper toned flatware completed the eclectic bohemian wedding design.
