Samantha and Ryan’s downtown St. Pete wedding was classic and elegant, with their venue’s outdoor courtyard providing a romantic backdrop for a beautiful garden ceremony, followed by a shimmering ballroom reception.
With their dream venue booked, the couple hired St. Petersburg wedding planner Parties A La Carte to bring their vision to life.
Samantha and her wedding planner created a theme centered on the timeless color palette of blush, navy blue, and white with gold accents. The natural beauty of the hotel courtyard, landscaped with lush greenery and fountain centerpiece needed only a few accents. Large floral arrangements on classic white pedestals held hydrangeas, blush pink roses, and greenery. The pastel blush of the bridesmaids dresses were mirrored in the bowties of the navy blue groomsmen suits and one very adorable ring bearer with a hand-painted wooden sign that read “Don’t worry ladies, I’m still single!”
The reception was held in the Grand Ballroom of the Vinoy Renaissance, with the vaulted ceiling lit up by the elaborate glass Chihuly chandelier. Gold accents glittered from table to table, including textured votive candle holders, stylish glittering table numbers and classic gold rimmed china plates and flatware from Tampa Bay rental company A Chair Affair. Over the Top Rental Linens provided shimmering blush pink satin linens, complementing the pink floral centerpieces with white anemones and blush roses with greenery in tall golden vases.
The bride and groom danced the night away to the Matt Winter Band, while modern purple uplighting amplified the party atmosphere for such a joyous night.
