A Discussion of Details
Marie Selby Gardens was the ideal location for Allison and Matthew’s Sarasota wedding and our Tailored Twig design team loved creating this shimmering wedding.
Their wedding was created using all white flowers, subtle touches of gold to accent this magnificent wedding with layers and layers of glass, acrylic and crystals.
Allison’s hand tailored bridal bouquet was created with Duchess peonies, garden roses, white tulips and white dahlias. This monochromatic bouquet with just a hint of greenery perfectly accessorized her form fitting modern lace wedding gown.
Matthew wore a simple white dahlia with a single stem of veronica, while his groomsmen each wore a white tulip. Each were hand wrapped in black ribbon to match their classic black tuxedos.
The couple exchanged their wedding vows under a clear chuppah with a waterfall of white Phalaenopsis orchids and hanging green amaranthus cascading over the front edge of the wedding structure.
In keeping with the feel of the chuppah, wedding guests were seated on clear ghost chairs. The aisle of their outdoor wedding ceremony was marked by two asymmetrical arrangements of phalaenopsis orchids, white roses, dahlias, Italian ruscus and hanging amaranthus resting on clear rectangular risers.
While guests enjoyed a waterfront cocktail reception they were able to find their seating assignments for the wedding reception listed on this clear seating chart hung in an oversized white frame.
The Selby Gardens’ ballroom was set with round tables draped in off white soft linen with mirrored tops, surrounding a long glass head table. Tables were set with clear class charger plates layered with custom menus, floating candles in clear glass goblets and antique glass votives.
Gold ballroom chairs, vessels and risers added a luster and a pop of color around the shimmering glass and white flowers. Gold metal risers lifted full luxurious arrangements of white hydrangea, Tibet roses, white tulips, snapdragons and white delphinium accented with pepper berry greens, amaranthus and long stems of white orchids.
The tablescape of the long glass head table was dotted with unique gold vessels overflowing with white orchids, ranunculus, spray roses and dahlias.
The chairs for the bride and groom in the center of the room were draped with stems of orchids, garden roses and snapdragons.
Congratulations Allison and Matthew, we know this was the wedding weekend of your dreams.
Thank you to all of the wedding professionals who made this day so amazing.
