When you take an iconic St. Pete Beach hotel and incorporate eclectic details, the result is charming elegance that captures a subtle yet chic ambiance.
Bringing together The Don CeSar’s recently renovated youthful modern look, St. Pete wedding planner Staci Mandikas of UNIQUE Weddings + Events created an organic yet bohemian theme for this styled wedding inspiration shoot.
Envisioning the perfect Florida wedding, the couple searched for a St. Pete Beach wedding venue with gorgeous views of the Gulf and a place for both their ceremony and reception.
“As soon as we walked into the Postcard Inn on the Beach, we looked at each other and knew it was the one. We both had that gut feeling,” Kathleen beamed. “The place fit our age, and it was just so retro and colorful! The entire staff was amazing, and they constantly checked to make sure everything was going according to the timeline. From start to finish the Postcard Inn made sure our day was exactly how we imagined it.”
Candace and Jaime’s dreamy waterfront downtown Tampa vow renewal wedding celebrated their 25-year love story. The Tampa bride and groom chose a color palette of dusty rose and burgundy to perfectly tie together their intimate gathering of 40 guests.
“The theme for our vow renewal was a romantic French country. We wanted our guests to share in our love for one another, and it was the style we felt most represented us as a couple. We chose our colors as a nod to our original wedding, where we also had burgundy as our primary color,” Candace shared. “Being older and more mature for this ceremony than our original one, we really know ourselves better now and easily gravitated to the style that best suited us.”
Brittany and Carl’s romantic Tampa Heights wedding dazzled from top to bottom with gorgeous gold details, tall geometric floral centerpieces, and sweet personal details that represented the bride and groom’s quirky personalities.
“Our theme had a very modern, romantic Tuscan feel. I wanted simple yet elegant, with plenty of unique details. Since Carl and I both have an Italian heritage, we wanted to ensure our vision really was captured the day of,” the bride shared. “We both have very similar tastes, and we felt like the decor of our wedding truly reflected us as a couple. From the donut station to our interactive band, everything really showcased who we really are down to Star Wars themed cuff links Carl wore!”
Envisioning an ambiance that combined classic Victorian elegance with modern chic decor, the bride's cousin just happened to be the talented florist at Gabro Event Services.
“My vision was something neutral, pure, and stunning,” the bride shared. “I was really impressed with all of the events that Gabro Event Services had been a part of, and I believed so much in their talent that I knew I wanted them as a vendor on our special day. They went over and beyond our expectations and beyond their responsibilities. Aside from nailing our vision, they were very professional, personable, and organized. We absolutely loved all of the work they did. Our favorite part? The flowers! They were fabulous, beautiful, stunning, and breathtaking! Gabro Events did more than we could ever thank them for!”
Ahyoung and Lamont’s downtown St. Pete wedding, was a tropical paradise filled with luxurious white orchids and rich dark-green florals, that ended with a karaoke party that had everyone on the dance floor.
“Even though we had a fall wedding, we still wanted the colors and theme to be very representative of Florida, where we met each other and fell in love. I looked through reviews and other weddings published on Marry Me Tampa Bay for inspiration,” the bride shared. “The large green palm fronds and monstera leaves provided the tropical feel of Florida, and the silver accents and touches completed the look by making everything feel a bit more trendy and modern.”
