November Black Friday Sale! $99 Bridesmaid Dresses at KennedyBlue.com

Kristen and Josh’s romantic St. Pete Beach wedding featured a beautiful blend of neutral tones, lush Florida backdrops, and greenery-filled rooftop elegance.

“The wedding was elegant and modern with neutral tones and lots of gorgeous florals. All of their signage was modern with white and black. The wedding colors were neutrals, white, ivory beige, taupe, and light blush. The groomsmen wore navy, and the bridesmaids wore beige and taupe dresses,” Lauren Reeser, Coastal Coordinating event coordinator, shared. “The bride and groom had hockey puck favors because the groom loves hockey, and they had a cake topper with the couple lifting weights because they love to work out together.”

Sitting on the intercoastal of St. Pete Beach, The Hotel Zamora offers rooftop event space with stunning views of the Gulf. The modern Mediterranean-style boutique hotel is idyllically located on the waterways of St. Pete Beach and offers guests a secluded ambiance and gorgeous Florida sunsets.

The Hotel Zamora was the perfect venue for this couple because it has a lot of gorgeous outdoor space, and it has a fun atmosphere. That’s exactly what Kristen and Josh were looking for in a venue,” Lauren beamed. “The pool deck was a pretty setting for their ceremony. The hotel has a lot of tropical greenery, which contrasted with the beautiful florals and the girls’ dresses. The rooftop was absolutely perfect for their cocktail hour and reception. Guests got to see a gorgeous sunset, enjoy drinks at the rooftop bar, and dance the night away on the dance floor.”

Kristen’s cascading bridal bouquet included romantic blush pink and ivory florals with eucalyptus leaves for a modern greenery look. Her bridesmaids were styled in matching beige fit-and-flare dresses, elegantly paired with classic long-stem rose bouquets.

For a decadent dessert that tasted as good as it looked, The Artistic Whisk designed a three-tier iced semi-naked wedding cake dripping with metallic gold icing. The cake featured two of bakery’s signature flavors: Chocolate Chip Cannoli and Chocolate Peanut Butter with house-made peanut butter.
