“Best of” 2021 Wedding Ceremonies: Part 2

Romantic Eucalyptus Green and Pink Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood

“The ceremony itself was very important. The words used and the promises we made to each other really mattered to us. I remember feeling nervous beforehand, but it ended up being perfect. Our theme was romantic and classic. The choices on florals, décor and everything else just fell into place, and it was perfect. We chose were mostly white, eucalyptus green, and very soft pink. I have always loved the way eucalyptus looks in floral bouquets. I loved the way the colors came together on our wedding day.” -The Bride

Intimate Dark and Moody Downtown St. Pete Wedding | Urban Stillhouse

“We never wanted to have a traditional wedding so keeping it small and intimate was definitely our style! Our theme was very dark and romantic. We wanted a more intimate setting and something different than your typical Florida wedding. We didn’t have a wedding party so the only color coordinating was with our flowers and décor. We used orange, burgundy, rose pink, and cream.” -The Bride

Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Vow Renewal | Isla del Sol Yacht and Country Club

After 40 years of marriage, Sandy and Bill’s intimate waterfront St. Pete vow renewal featured a tropical ceremony, much different from the blizzard and two feet of snow that occurred during their first ceremony and rainstorm that arose during their 25th wedding anniversary party.

Vibrant pink, bright purple, and vivid yellow floral decor popped against the soothing earth tones of the private beachfront of their wedding venue’s marina.

“Our theme was tropical. We went Lilly nuts! Our little flower girls referred to the event as the Lilly Party.” -The Bride

Elegant Beige and Green Tropical Wedding | Hilton Clearwater Beach

“My idea for the overall wedding design was a tropical jungle oasis. I wanted tropical greenery to be everywhere and to incorporate neutrals and simple décor, as to not outshine the foliage. Our colors were beige and dark green. I wanted the colors to coordinate well with the florals. They meshed very well together and even though the green is considered a dark color, it didn’t make the space feel dark.” -The Bride

Romantic Gold and Champagne Downtown Wedding | Tampa Museum of Art

“Our wedding theme was chic and romantic with a touch of citrus fruit in the centerpieces. I wanted to match the theme of the venue by keeping the decor modern with a fun Florida twist. Our main inspiration came from a styled shoot I had seen, especially the minimalist ideas and color scheme. My colors were blush, navy, champagne, and glitter gold.  I absolutely had to have glitter gold! The blush and champagne softened this bold color, and the navy adds a touch of masculinity for the groom.” -The Bride

Luxurious Blush and Rose Clearwater Wedding | Belleair Country Club

“Our wedding was elegant and unique. We wanted our wedding to be a formal affair that had a soft and romantic tone. Our colors included blush, rose, and, champagne tones with a light gold accent. We chose these colors to complement cherry blossoms, which are one of my favorite flowers and were a main part of the floral arrangements. We also felt these colors set a soft and romantic tone which is what we wanted for the overall experience of the wedding.” -The Bride

Vibrant Floral Filled Luxurious St. Pete Wedding | Vinoy Renaissance

Katelynn and Avery’s intimate downtown St. Pete wedding combined a romantic palette with a garden setting filled with abundant and colorful floral – including a jaw-dropping peacock fountain arrangement. Following the stunning ceremony, friends and family enjoyed outdoor dining at a communal table enclosed in a canopy of suspended blooms and sheer draping.

“The theme we were going for was a romantic garden theme with lots of flowers. The colors were greens, whites, and all different shades of pinks.” -The Bride

Orange and Marigold Mid-Century Modern Wedding Inspiration | Tampa Garden Club

“The theme was mid-century modern meets 2021. The mid-century vibe has stood the test of time. TV Shows, Movies, fashion, and home décor all still live in this realm so I thought well what about weddings? Our colors were orange, green, marigold, and white. We wanted to stay true to the original aesthetic of mid-century, and they are deeply vibrant and give off those eclectic retro vibes!” –Annah Tarallo, Everlasting Affair

Mauve, Gold, and Navy Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood

“We had lovely ceremony music, with a live violinist and a pianist. The song I walked down the aisle to was a mash-up of Perfect by Ed Sheeran (which is Keith and my song) and the traditional Bridal Chorus which is something I have always wanted to walk down the aisle to since I was a child. I loved princesses and castles growing up. Princess is also what my father used to call me I wanted something softer than my favorite color purple, so naturally mauve was the perfect color!” -The Bride
