Inspired by the rustic, elegance of the outdoors, this Bradenton wedding styled shoot came to life with non-traditional details and amazing accents. Sarasota wedding planner, Kelly Kennedy, owner Kelly Kennedy Weddings and Events envisioned beautiful details that would leave a lasting impression for a couple and their guests on their wedding day.
“I knew the direction I wanted to go, but with the different decor rentals needed for the tablescape, it wasn’t until I started putting everything together on the day of the shoot that my full vision was created and exceeded by all of the beautiful elements provided by these amazing professionals,” Kelly shared.
For a non-traditional approach, an eclectic array of rental and floral items were pieced together to create an ethereal focal point on each table and throughout the reception decor.
“I absolutely love decorating a dessert table. When a bride tells me that she wants a non-traditional dessert table, I can’t help but get really excited. I like to be able to focus the attention to each dessert provided, but giving a decorated space to showcase everything,” the wedding planner explained.
Kelly, who also includes rentals as part of her planning services, incorporated the armoire, sweetheart table chairs, beverage cart and ceremony backdrop into the shoot.
“I like to think of my business as unique because I do have a variety of rental items to offer to my couples. I see such a huge demand in wanting unique elements incorporated into their wedding, and I think by offering this to my brides, I give them an easy opportunity to help them reach that uniqueness,” Kelly shared.
