A Discussion of Details
Our Tailored Twig design team always enjoys working at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and Madison and Shane’s incredible wedding was certainly no exception.
Madison looked stunning in her white halter neck wedding gown and her deep navy blue pumps and clutch. They were a beautiful accent and a great contrast to her hand tailored bridal bouquet.
Her amazing bouquet combined dark eggplant call lilies, cymbidium orchids, burgundy clematis, burgundy red charm peonies and striking black scabiosa.
Our Tailored Twig design team created unique boutonnieres for Shane and the groomsmen, that were designed to be worn horizontally across the top of their pockets.
Black scabiosa, clusters of privet berries and tips of Star of Bethlehem made a bold statement.
Prior to their wedding ceremony, Shane made his way to the gazebo at St. Armand’s Key Lutheran Church, for their first look.
This beautiful outdoor space had been set with a deep burgundy vintage love seat which was draped with fall greens. The area was adorned with a swag of florals hanging from the trellis and an arrangement next the love seat.
The perfect location for a first look and some special photos.
The church’s interior was fully decorated for Christmas, so a few simple touches including nosegays of white floral on the first few pews and a altar arrangement in deep burgundy, pink and white completed the look.
After Madison and Shane exchanged their wedding vows they returned to the gazebo for some photos with their wedding party and family.
The bouquets carried by Madison’s eight bridal attendants popped with beautiful white anemone with dark centers, ivory Vendela roses and touches of blush and burgundy.
The couple and their wedding party made a stop at the Ringling bridge for some group photos while family and guests made their way to the Ritz-Carlton’s Healing Garden for Holiday Moscow Mules, Champagne and butler passed hors d’ oeuvres.
As guests made their way into the Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, the entrance was marked with tall mirrored columns printed with seating assignments. Clusters of ivory pillar candles surrounded the panels with floral boughs across the tops.
Inside, the ballroom was completely draped in soft flowing white fabric. Eclectic seating arrangements combines more class chair stiles with modern acrylic chairs, and tables draped in rich dark blue linen with long glass tables.
Crystal chandeliers and large floral chandeliers of bright red flowers and greenery were suspended in the center of the room, above the large white dance floor.
Each table held a unique tablescape. Some of the tables held tall modern class candelabras with white taper candles, while others were set with chucky cream pillar candles perched on gold branches. Collections of hand selected vessels held floral arrangements of burgundy florals intermingled with flickering candles.
Gold rimmed glass charger plates, gold flatware and custom menu cards completed the elegant table designs.
Across the ballroom, creamy gold vintage seating with burgundy and blue accent pillows sat next to gold and glass occasional tables that held beautiful centerpieces continuing the color story throughout the ballroom.
Madison and Shane kicked off their reception with their first dance under a canopy of shimmering lights, suspended burgundy floral arrangements and greenery.
Their glass sweetheart table and elegant love seat were nestled between their wedding party tables, along the edge of the dancefloor.
Several special toasts, a delicious dinner and packed dancefloor led to the couple cutting this spectacular four-tiered wedding cake dressed with a cascade of burgundy and blush florals.
The evening didn’t end there; the newlyweds and a large number of their guests made their way to an afterparty with never ending dancing and some late night snacks.
Congratulations Madison and Shane!
