A Discussion of Details
With everything that is currently going on in the world, our Tailored Twig team wanted to do a quick check-in. We wanted to let you know that our team is still here working behind the scenes with our couples planning Florida weddings.
We also thought that sharing some beautiful images from Carolyn and William’s Ritz-Carlton Sarasota on New Year’s Eve might bring a smile to your faces.
Their beautiful Sarasota wedding began with a magical church wedding ceremony. This black and white photograph, as they left the church, is one of our favorites.
Carolyn’s hand-tailored bridal bouquet was a unique combination of textures and florals, all within a white color story with touches of greenery. Her bouquet included giant white calla lilies, Duchess peonies, white ranunculus, and Marianne anemone paired with seeded eucalyptus, plumosa fern, green thistle, and magnolia leaves.
The groom’s boutonniere incorporated several elements from the bride’s bouquet. Our team chose a creamy white ranunculus and the texture of green thistle to pop against his classic white tuxedo.
This little guy wore a Marianne anemone, with its black center and fluttering white petals, pinned to his suspenders.
And, how freaking adorable are these two being pulled down the aisle in a wagon wrapped in Italian ruscus?
Following their touching wedding ceremony, the couple and their wedding guests gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota for dinner and the disco party to end all.
Long rectangular guest tables were placed under a canopy of twinkling lights. Each table was draped in soft light pink linen and layered with gold-rimmed glass charger plates, pink satin napkins, and custom-designed menu cards.
The center of each table was filled with a flowing collection of eclectic vessels, candles, and blooms.
Our Tailored Twig design team incorporated vessels that blended modern gold tones, mercury glass, and miniature handblown works of art.
The vessels overflowed with lush, textured greenery incorporating Bells of Ireland, Southern smilax, magnolia leaves, and ferns punctuating them white wax flowers, Eskimo roses, white calla lilies, and striking black burgundy scabiosa.
The long flowing tablescape was dotted with brass candlesticks with white taper candles as well as collections of gold and mercury glass votive candle holders. This was a luxurious look that functioned well on the long rectangular tables.
Once dinner had concluded, guests made their way to a space that was transformed into a shimmering disco. The night was filled with dancing and made ringing in the new year extra special.
This is sure to be a New Year’s Eve wedding that Carolyn and William’s family and friends will be talking about for years to come.
Congratulations Carolyn and William, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
Our Tailored Twig design team was thrilled to be part of this incredible Sarasota wedding.
Thank you to all of the wedding professionals that made this wedding so special.

The portraits from Georgette and Thomas’ Oxford Exchange wedding in downtown Tampa looks like they could have come from an editorial photo shoot. The deep burgundy color story and romantic vintage detailing added to the feel.
And after working with Georgette on floral designs for her bridal shower, our Tailored Twig design team really understood her style.
She looked incredible in her lace A-Line wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline. Her custom-tailored bridal bouquet of blueberry and quicksand roses, purple anemone, burgundy clematis black scabiosa and purple waxflower also incorporated red designer amaranthus and nigella pods for texture. Her sliver satin Manolo Blahnik pumps were the perfect accent.
The bridal party’s bouquets of ivory Vendela and quicksand roses with fresh cut Agonis branches popped against their shimmering deep burgundy dresses.
Thomas and his wedding party looked sharp in their dark suits with burgundy pocket squares and matching burgundy boutonnieres with green thistle accents.
The couple’s wedding portraits on the wooden staircase lined with greenery and pillar candles looks like they stepped out of a magazine.
The entrance to the reception space was set with a round entry table containing a modern glass welcome sign, guest book and a lot of candles in vintage mercury glass vessels. A tall bronze tone urn with a lush arrangement of burgundy florals and thick cascading greenery accented the entry.
The industrial table top of the Oxford Exchange’s dining room was set with unique eclectic tablescapes that incorporated flickering candles in mercury glass containers, gold toned vessels in modern geometric shapes and clear Venetian glass budvases. Each vessel held unique botanicals in shades of deep burgundy and red along with textured greenery, Spanish moss and long streaming pheasant feathers.
Chunky modern table numbers and vintage keys connected to each guest’s place card added more texture to the tablescapes.
Georgette and Thomas’ sweetheart table continued the elements found on each tablescape. Nigella pods, burgundy snapdragons and deep ruby red hanging amaranthus added a lot of texture to the arrangements. The fabulous high backed, domed chairs lined in tweed were the perfect paring to the couple’s sweetheart table.
The newlywed’s four-tiered wedding cake was displayed against the rustic vine covered, whitewashed brick wall. The unique colors and textures of each of the cake’s layers were accented by the black scabiosa, purple anemone and pheasant feathers.
Congratulations Georgette and Thomas, we know your wedding was picture perfect!
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!
Thank you to the incredible wedding professionals who were part of this special day.

We know you will absolutely adore the soft, lush pink and white floral décor our Tailored Twig design team created for Miya and Glenn’s fairytale wedding at The Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch.
Miya looked stunning in a long, full lace ballgown with a long flowing veil. Her bridal bouquet was hand tailored with beautiful white dahlias, Ester light pink roses, white ranunculus, lilac, campanula and snapdragons.
These striking florals flowed over into the bouquets for her bridal party and the flower girl’s basket.
As guests were transported to the wedding they were greeted by an enormous welcome sign that was framed in dozens of white roses. This was a detail that set the tone for things to come.
The lakefront lawn was set for Miya and Glenn’s spectacular outdoor wedding ceremony. A lawn filled with clear acrylic chairs led to a series of incredible ceremony structures.
Four modern rectangular risers overflowed with pink and white flowers, framing the space where the couple would exchange their wedding vows.
The backdrop was a large, open, four-sided arbor draped in billowing white fabric. The front side of the arbor held an incredible cascade of pink and white florals that continued the color story and surrounded the couple.
The Lake Club ballroom was set to create an enchanting space for the couple’s wedding guests.
During the cocktail hour Miya snuck away for a sneak peek at her fairytale ballroom and we’d say she was a little more than excited!
The ballroom was dressed in pink and white with incredible gold accents. Gold framed chairs, gold rimmed china and footed gold vessels filled with pink and white florals made the design pop. Floating candles in glass containers, crystal bud vases and modern glass candelabras brought candlelight and a sparkle to the ballroom.
An entire wall of the ballroom was draped floor to ceiling in luxurious white fabric, framing the sweetheart table and the couple’s four-tiered wedding cake.
The focal point of the design was Miya and Glenn’s sweetheart table. The ornate white table and tufted love seat sat under a four-sided arbor draped in pink fabric. A glistening crystal chandelier hung behind the newlyweds with a floral canopy hanging directly above their heads.
A floral swag trailed off one end of the table with crystal bud vases of flowers and glass votive candles filling the table. The four risers overflowing in pink and white flowers where moved inside to frame the sweetheart table.
The bride and groom were completely surrounded by a sea of Marianne anemone, pink astilbe, white hydrangea, snapdragons along with David Austin and Sweet Eskimo roses.
Guests danced the night away and enjoyed incredible food stations before Miya and Glenn cut their wedding cake. A round gold toned cake riser and beautifully appointed bud vases surrounded this monogrammed pink and white marble creation.
Congratulations Miya and Glenn! Our Tailored Twig team is so glad we got to bring your fairytale wedding to life.

If you know anything at all about Tailored Twig, you know we love sharing our passion for flowers, floral design and what we do.
Part of our passion for sharing includes teaching people how to design their own amazing creations.
This past holiday season Darin and our design team were part of ‘Wine and Design” at the magnificent Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota.
This year’s event themed “Holiday Splendor” attended by over 100 guests, offered them an evening filled with tasty treats, wine and the opportunity to spend one on one time with our designers.
Darin’s demonstration was shared with guests over two large production screens, allowing them to see an up-close view of his design process.
Carts filled with spectacular red anthurium, dark red celosia and spray roses, green eyed merlot garden roses, and red astilbe as well as festive juniper, star of Bethlehem and veronica offered guests a wide variety of items to design their creations.
With a little hand on instruction by our Tailored Twig team, each person was able to design their own one of a kind creation to take home.
Our team had such an incredible time with this event and our we are looking forward to future events with Selby Gardens.
In the past, we have worked with other groups for fun, educational floral design classes such as our “50 Shades of Rose” Valentine’s Day event, as well as private instruction and team building in our Tampa floral design studio.
Our Tailored Twig team would love to custom design an educational floral design class for your garden club, or civic organization. These classes are also ideal for bachelorette parties and bridal or baby showers.
Floral design classes are also the perfect team building activity for your corporation or associations board of directors.

Alex and John’s blush, white and gold color story was amazingly soft and romantic and the amazing outdoor spaces at the Historic Spanish Point in Osprey created an incredible design backdrop for our Tailored Twig design team.
Alex carried a soft hand tailored bridal bouquet of blush colored David Austin garden roses, white roses, peonies, ranunculus and snapdragons with Marianne Anemone with their striking black center as a focal point.
The wide-open Duchene ceremony lawn, bordered by Queen Palms was set with gold chivari chairs facing an incredible classic portal erected in 1912. The portal was draped in soft flowing white and pink fabrics while flowering branches created an arched backdrop.
The aisle of chairs was lined with soft nosegays of greenery with blush and white florals.
Alex’s bridal party wore long black gowns and carried bouquets similar in style and color to hers with the groomsmen’s boutonnieres complimenting their classic black tuxedos.
Across the property at the waterfront, the outdoor wedding reception glistened as the sun began to set. A large crystal chandelier floated above a black and white checked dance floor.
Long rectangular acrylic tables framed the dancefloor. Modern gold tone vessels containing blooms of green thistle, white campanula, quicksand roses and white ranunculus rested on a long black fabric runner surrounded by mercury glass votive candles.
The edge of the reception space was framed with round guest tables draped in pale blush linens topped with tall gold urns filled with lush greenery, dusty miller and accents of blush and white. Additional tables held gold footed vessels overflowing with blush and white roses, Italian ruscus, and seeded eucalyptus as well as green thistle and white campanula.
Hanging chandeliers, clear acrylic chairs, glass charger plates with gold beaded edges and gold flatware completed the design.
Nearby, a quiet terrace was set with comfortable vintage lounge furnishings and gold framed glass top coffee tables were accented with simple gold budvases and blush florals.
Following their first dance Alex and Jon were surrounded by family and friends and enjoyed a multicourse gourmet dinner that concluded a custom-made S’mores Bar before the couple made their grand exit under a shower of sparklers.
Congratulations Alex and Jon!

Our Tailored Twig design loved traveling to Anna Maria Island for Melissa and Mehul’s incredible wedding weekend. This day long Monday wedding was the culmination of a weekend of festivities that blended Indian and American traditions, fun and family.
The wedding weekend included a Sangeet filled with music, a morning of yoga, Mehendi and beach bash.
Monday morning began with the guys relaxing and having brunch while the ladies spent the morning doing hair and makeup and relaxing for the multiple ceremonies to follow.
The afternoon festivities began with the Barrat; Mehul was on horseback and was led down the beach following behind dhol drummers and friends to the mandap for the Indian wedding ceremony.
The beachside wedding pavilion was set with a dark wood ceremony structure swagged in light white fabric and accented with boughs of greenery and brilliantly colored florals that included orange roses, white spray roses, veronica and antique hydrangea.
Rattan peacock chairs for the couple were accented with brightly colored roses and sat on the mandap atop natural fiber rugs. Clusters of woven lanterns hug above the structure adding texture and interest to the ceremony space.
As Melissa and Mehul concluded the traditional Indian wedding ceremony wedding guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as final preparations were made for the American wedding ceremony on the beach.
The moon gate wedding structure was set against the dunes with the Gulf of Mexico in the background. Italian ruscus, protea and bright orange roses added color to the sleek wooden structure. The perfect setting for the second wedding ceremony.
Having changed from traditional Indian attire for the second ceremony, the bridesmaids were dressed in white and carried hoops of soft white and green floral. We love the contrast of the white lace dresses, soft florals and the ornate henna designs.
Melissa carried a stunning hand tailored bridal bouquet of pincushion protea, white wax flower, King protea, and quicksand roses.
During the beachside wedding ceremony, the wedding pavilion was transformed for an evening of dinner and dancing.
A long table anchored the room with the couple’s peacock chairs being repurposed at the head table. The table was draped with a uniquely patterned linen in blue and white.
Modern gold metallic vessels lined the table overflowing with textured greenery and florals in shades of pink, peach and orange with collections of votive candles adding a shimmer of light.
Reception tables included rustic wooden tables, as well as tables draped in white and more of the uniquely patterned blue and white linen. Modern gold and glass table number and gold metallic vessels contrasted the light wooden chairs, rattan charger plates and blue and white cloth napkins.
Stunning collections of florals continued the color story that began with the Indian wedding ceremony with pin cushion protea, hanging burgundy amaranthus and blue thistle adding pops of color and eye-catching texture to the tables.
The beach area outside the pavilion was set with lounge furnishings that combined vintage pieces and rattan furniture with soft pink accent pillows and occasional tables filled with soft candlelight and modern vessels with colorful arrangements.
The final decorative touch to this day filled with beautiful colors and textures was a trio of simple white wedding cakes on gold platters. Brightly colored oranges, peach and pink florals created a standout detail.
Congratulations Melissa and Mehul, our Tailored Twig is thrilled to have been part of this incredible day of celebration!
We know you will enjoy this sneak peek at the rest of Melissa and Mehul’s wedding day.
Thank you to the wedding professionals who made this wedding day so incredible

Our Tailored Twig design team loves secrets!
Truthfully, we work with couples who add special surprises to their wedding day, companies planning product launches; as well as creations for editorial photos for future ad campaigns. So we have a lot of practice at keeping secrets.
This one is a little different in that we were invited to be part of a collaboration for a styled shoot at Sarasota’s incredibly exclusive Waterworks.
The Waterworks is a private membership social and business club combining the old with the new, catering to high-end clientele.
The amazing building, on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984, the two-story red brick building in downtown Sarasota was designed in 1926 and utilized as the city’s waterworks station.
Because of the very exclusive nature of the Waterworks, our Tailored Twig team waited on approval of all of the images; showing incredible wedding details and tiny glimpses of the rustic, industrial interior.
Balancing beautiful red brick, industrial windows, black metal and clean lines was the perfect opportunity to create uniquely textured, hand tailored, one of a kind elements
The setting was perfect for this modern, single specimen bridal bouquet incorporating striking White Queen Protea and a wide organic, natural fiber ribbon. The curves and colors of the blooms entwined with the darker ribbon with its stiff texture popped against the bride’s modern lace wedding gown with plunging neckline.
One of our favorite creations is this stunning straight line bridal bouquet. With gnarled wood at its base this bouquet winds featherlight leaves with the soft textures of hanging green amaranthus and uses the diverse textures and subtle differences in the colors of Phalaenopsis Orchids, Duchess White Peonies and White Queen Protea. We especially love the way it stands out against the smooth texture of the satin organza ballgown.
Two other standout bouquets play in stark contrast to each other.
A dark moody modern creation combines unique colors and textures of Dark Purple Calla Lilies, Red Hot Anthurium, bright pink Cymbidium Orchids and Fiddlehead Ferns with a rustic textured satin wrap and palm bark.
This is an amazing contrast to this soft, delicate white stem wrapped bouquet. The soft feathery edges of the wrap set the tone for the full soft creamy white roses with ruffled edges, paired with Duchess White Peonies, soft green vine tendrils and soft green thistle.
Our Tailored Twig team was sure not to leave the guys out creating magnificent, textured boutonnieres. Each incorporated elements of one of the bouquets with the addition of unique botanicals, metallic wraps and unique accents to make them a one of a kind and unique as each groom.
We also had the opportunity to fill some of the Waterworks spaces with amazing floral details that complimented each portion of the styled shoot. From bold colored contemporary ceremony creations to vessels filled with soft green and white tones to pair with rustic tablescapes.
Filling the black metal, industrial staircase with cascading vines and accent arrangements in shades of green and white continued the color story, added dimension to the stark industrial surfaces and brought the outside indoors.
Our Tailored Twig design team is thrilled to be part of this amazing collaboration and to be able to share a sneak peek into this never before photographed setting.
We cannot wait for the opportunity to work with some of the Sarasota Waterworks members to design one of a kind creations for their wedding or upcoming event.
Thank you to the amazing professionals we had the pleasure to work with.

Recently our Tailored Twig design team had the pleasure of working with Nicole Kaney and the team at NK Production.
Kim and Tommy’s luxurious wedding at Sarasota’s Marie Selby Botanical Gardens was filled with unique, hand tailored details in a color story of blush and gold.
Wedding ceremonies at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are known for their majestic trees draped in Spanish moss. They set an elegant backdrop, but the detailing of Kim and Tommy’s wedding went even farther.
The pathway to the wedding ceremony was framed with a rustic garden trellis covered with native vines. A swag of soft pink Sweet Eskimo and Quicksand roses, pink spray roses and light pink snapdragons added a focal point to the entrance.
The outdoor wedding ceremony was set with white chivari chairs accented with nosegays of delicate pink florals and greenery.
Four large gold toned vessels marked the beginning and end of the aisle; overflowing with seeded eucalyptus, Italian ruscus and cottage roses in pink and white with wax flower and snapdragons.
A white aisle runner was framed with a blanket of white petals leading to the ceremony space.
A cascade of pink hung from the trees above the ceremony space with floral chandeliers of lush greenery, spray roses, light pink ranunculus and giant queen pink protea.
Kim wore an elegant modern lace gown and carried a luxurious textured bouquet of Marianne anemone, pink Cozy Cottage roses, Queen Pink protea, Gardenia peonies and seeded eucalyptus.
Her wedding party was dressed in shades of pink and rose gold and carried similarly styled bouquets accented with sweet pink roses and snapdragons.
Across the gardens, finishing touches were being added to Kim and Tommy’s elegant tented wedding.
One of our Tailored Twig design team’s favorite touches for a wedding reception is an elegantly appointed lounge area and they are officially “IN” for 2020.
Cream colored vintage chairs and sofa were accented with pink and gold pillow while; glass and gold toned tables added a modern element to the collection. The seating area was finished with rectangular vessels filled with pink and white florals and several styles of votive candles.
The ceiling of the reception tent was draped in flowing white fabric with nearly a dozen crystal chandeliers lighting the space. Round guest tables were draped in luxurious soft pink linens and layered with gold rimmed china and stemware.
Tall rose gold vessels dotted the room with overhead arrangements, alternating with tables set with arrangements in gold footed vessels. Pink and white wax flower, roses and greenery we accented with Blue Bell thistle, Marianne anemone and pink snapdragons for texture and dimension.
A long rustic wooden head table sat at one end of the tent overflowing with a cascade of pink and white blooms, modern glass vessels with floating candles and textured votive candles.
Custom gold toned name pieces and lush floral swags marked the bride and groom’s seats.
The couple’s amazing cake and unique table display added to the weddings incredible details. A living table of thick greenery, Spanish moss and a skirt of pink and white floral accents held the couple’s four-tiered blush, white and brushed gold wedding cake.
A cascade of roses, white astible, wax flower and Italian ruscus wound its way across the wedding cake.
Congratulations Kim and Tommy, our Tailored Twig design team is thrilled to have been part of your incredible wedding!

Our Tailored Twig design team has seen something interesting happen in weddings over the last few months that looks like one of 2020's top wedding trends.
We are guessing that by now you have seen or heard about Tiny Houses. These miniature version of a full-sized house.
Couples aren’t looking for fewer features or less luxurious options in the houses. They are looking for less square footage and to surround themselves with things that are meaningful to them.
Micro weddings are becoming almost as popular as Tiny Houses. They are NOT the stereotypical elopement, spur of the moment courthouse wedding.
What our Tailored Twig design team has seen and so is the wedding industry as a whole, is that couples want a luxurious, meaningful wedding surrounded by the people they love.
What this means for most couples is smaller numbers of wedding guests, focusing on personalization and the guest experience.
Here To Stay
Please do not misunderstand us, decades of industry experience are showing that big, fabulous family weddings are here to stay.
For many couples and their families, it’s a way of life. They have big extended families; large social circles and a big wedding is part of their way of life.
Not to mention that there are lots of couples who have dreamed of big fairytale weddings their entire lives.
What is changing is the smaller intimate weddings. These are for couples who only saw an elopement, courthouse and intimate destination getaway as an option.
It Is All About The Details
A Micro Wedding is all about the details, it’s about having all of the beautiful things you thought you would miss out on by having an intimate elopement.
Our Tailored Twig team has worked with couples to design beautiful lounge seating areas layered with area rugs, vintage furnishings, and comfortable accent pillows; surrounded by unique vessels filled with the couple’s favorite blooms.
The perfect spaces to sit back and share stories of the couple and their families.
We have handcrafted intimate dining spaces filled with family china and glassware, luxurious linens and breathtaking tablescapes. Each table making honored wedding guests feel like they are an welcomed guest in the couples home.
From hand-tailored personal flowers for each wedding guest to collections of inspired centerpieces where each guest has a vessel as a keepsake. Tiny weddings are focused on making those around you know just how thankful you are for them.
We look forward to the honor of working with you and for your guests to forge lasting memories
