A Discussion of Details
Recently our Tailored Twig design team worked with Shelly and Robert to create impactful details for their intimate Oxford Exchange wedding.
This incredible, historic Tampa wedding venue features sweeping wooden staircases, bold black and white checked floors, exposed brick and impactful artwork. Designing wedding décor for this very busy space requires finesse and intricate details to capture your attention.
We began with a color story that included subtle white details, touches of greenery and then antique pink and dusty rose to draw your eye.
Our team began with Shelly’s hand tailored bridal bouquet. Her elegant, long sleeve wedding gown had very few embellishments and her bouquet was the perfect accessory.
Seeded eucalyptus, pepper berry greens and rosemary created a cascading, textural backdrop for the quicksand and amnesia roses with their various shades of antique pink. Pink astible added softness and lighter tones along with anemone and white scabiosa. The dark centers in the anemone and the deep burgundy tones of the black scabiosa incorporated some boldness.
Robert’s boutonniere was a single bloom of Marianne Anemone. It’s size, bright white color and deep black center paired well with his classic tuxedo with black satin shawl collar.
The ladies in the wedding party carried a smaller hand tied version of Shelly’s bouquet with the roses pairing with the pink in the bridesmaid’s dresses. The gentleman wore very masculine green thistle boutonnieres that balanced the dusty rose in their neckties and pocket square.
On the venue’s entry table was a gold metallic trumpet shaped vessel overflowed with green thistle and Italian ruscus dotted with the black and white anemone, pink roses and deep burgundy scabiosa. The vessel was the perfect size and coloring to break up the sight lines in the busy space filled with eclectic details.
Shelly and Robert’s wedding ceremony was set against the backdrop of the venue’s sunlit Atrium. Soft pink fabric draped in a crisscross pattern played off the bold floor, contemporary black chairs and exposed brick to draw your eye toward the couple as they exchanged their wedding vows.
Clusters of chunky cream-colored pillar candles were set into arrangements of green thistle and Italian ruscus. These groupings dotted the aisle adding texture and a pop of brightness against the black and white marble tile floors.
Incorporating the right focal points, and adding touches of color and texture to make a design pop were just the accents needed for a very visually stimulating event space.
Congratulations Shelly and Robert!
Thank you to the creative team of wedding professionals who made Shelly and Robert’s wedding day so special.
