A Discussion of Details
Katie and Joe’s Gulf Coast wedding at the historic Bay Preserve at Osprey located on Little Sarasota Bay incorporated rustic elegance with a pop of color.
Our Tailored Twig design team worked with a very light, organic color story and designed hand detailed elements with texture and intent.
The Bay Preserve at Osprey is part of the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast and the feel of the nature preserve helped blend all of the design elements. We created a picked from the fields vibe with kumquats added as a design element for a pop of color.
Joe’s boutonniere combined stark black privett berries, balanced against the bright orange of a single kumquat with stems of white veronica that were still closed to add a unique more masculine feel.
Katie’s beautiful bridal bouquet incorporated softer variegated shades of green such as silver eucalyptus, snapdragon buds, veronica and Queen Anne’s lace. These green elements with touches of white moved into bolder white floral specimens with brilliant white peonies, white garden roses and white ranunculus, with the addition of the orange kumquats drawing your eye in.
The loose organic feel of Katie’s bridal bouquet was the perfect accessory to her modern lace applique wedding gown.
The tented wedding reception that followed the ceremony continued the elegant rustic design elements with a matte finish linen on an earthy grey tone, dark wooden French country chairs and wood block table numbers.
Low centerpieces in copper tone vessels were balanced against tall white risers, each continuing the natural green and white color story with the pops of orange kumquats. The arrangements, which alternate from table to table, brought in pepperberry greens, white campanula, privette berries, white spray roses and creamy vendela roses to add depth and
Katie and Joe’s simple three-tiered white combed buttercream wedding cake continued the color story with several brilliant clusters of kumquats.
Congratulations Katie and Joe, it was our pleasure to be part of your wedding day.
