Possibly because it feels like summer almost year-round in Florida, I always reach for this Sunshine State editorial from our ninth issue as the temperatures climb here in North Carolina. The vibrant color, thoughtful details, and Art Deco location add up to an inspiring look at how to make a wedding your own, especially if you’d like your celebration to reflect the destination you’ve chosen. Our St. Augustine location was a huge source source of inspiration for these photos, from the citrus and flamingo-inspired palette we used, to the tropical blooms Ashton Events arranged, to the graphic, Art Deco patterns that popped up throughout.
We’re so grateful to our longtime friend and Blue Ribbon Vendor Justin DeMutiis for capturing all the fun!
P.S. Spot any familiar faces in our beautiful bridal party? :)
Twinkle & Toast created the most beautiful and pop-y invitation suite to announce our colorful soiree. The die-cut invitation shape, inspired by Florida’s art deco pools, popped up several more times throughout the shoot.
Our bride’s bouquet, by Laura from Ashton Events, included Yves Piaget, Romantic Antique and Lemon Pompon garden roses; Coral Charm peonies; daffodil;, fritillaria; boronia; ranunculus; Mambo and Majolika spray roses; salal; fern; and gardenia.
Working with ghost chairs at your ceremony? Order vinyl cling-on names to mark reserved seating for loved ones.
It’s safe to say our whole team is obsessed with this tablescape, from the matte black chairs to the banded linen, colorful flowers, and poolside locale! Ashton Events, Wish Vintage Rentals, Luxe Party Rentals, and Kate Ryan Linens knocked it out of the park!
