A Discussion of Details
Our Tailored Twig design team had an incredible time working with Keri, Chris and their fabulous wedding team. Their Longboat Key wedding was relaxed, bohemian themed and just makes you smile.
The couple chose to not do a first look, but to instead see each other on the beach when they arrived for their waterfront wedding ceremony.
The beach at the Longboat Key Club and Resort was lined with dark wood pews with throw pillows that popped against the background of sand and water. Accents of pampas grass lined the aisle with a crisscross of rugs, laid in the sand, leading to an incredible round wedding structure of pampas grass that fluttered in the breeze.
Keri made her entrance to ‘Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic’ by The Police. She truly looked very boho wearing a light, flowing halter top wedding gown carrying a loose, hand tailored bridal bouquet of Festiva peonies, wispy pink spray roses, quicksand roses, white Veronica and soft astilbe.
Chris wore tan slacks and a white linen shirt with a boutonniere that combined an air plant, white astilbe, seeded and eucalyptus and a soft pink spray rose tucked in his pocket. A detail that truly reflected the relaxed feel of the day.
Guests relaxed with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the beach as the couple and their family took time for some waterfront photos.
The seating for the cocktail style wedding included long wooden tables with acrylic ghost chairs, vignettes of antique love seats, armchairs mixed with cocktail tables, rugs and throw pillows.
Accessorizing this casual comfortable setting was accomplished with eclectic collections of metallic tone vessels bursting with soft florals and mercury glass votive candles.
Runners of sheer flowing fabric trailed the length of the wooden tables entwined with a garland of eucalyptus, pink and sand colored roses, white Veronica and astilbe.
Keri and Chris opened the evening with their first dance on a white dance floor under a canopy of market lights.
A cocktail style reception dinner with a mix of fun food stations including food truck style food, tapas and an Asian inspired station allowed for a casual evening of dining, dancing and conversation.
The couple cut this large cylinder-shaped wedding cake accented with astilbe before the catering team cut and served it with a delicious selection of late night snacks.
Our Tailored Twig design team whishes Keri and Chris the very best, we enjoyed designing this easy, flowing boho chic design that was both casual and elegant.
Thank you to everyone who made this eclectic bohemian wedding a reality.
