Lilac and Gray Rustic Chic Tampa Bay Wedding | Southern Plantation Oasis

 

Wedding Flea Tampa Bridal Show May 2018

Lisa and Eddie’s rustic chic Tampa Bay wedding featured a lilac, gold and gray color palette that complemented their Southern inspired outdoor venue. Focusing on a simplistic design and personalized details, the bride and groom made their day truly their own.

“We wanted the day to be special and beautiful, but we went the DIY route to put our special touch on everything. Eddie grew up hunting so when we found our invites with both roses and deer antlers, it was a perfect blend of both of our personalities! It paved the way for the rest of our little touches, including a gorgeous lilac flower arch complete with a set of antlers,” the bride gushed. “Eddie is very hands, on and he actually made almost all of the items used in the wedding from the bouquets and centerpieces to the arch; he handmade it all!”

The Virginia couple searched the Tampa Bay area for a private home that would make a great wedding venue and also be easily accessible for family in Orlando to attend. Looking for for a location where their closest friends and family could also stay on-site, Lisa and Eddie found it all at Southern Plantation Oasis.

“We wanted the majority of the décor to be nature with lots of grass, trees, and open space. Southern Plantation made all of that possible. It had everything we were looking for in a venue. The house and grounds are exactly as pictured. The house is very well kept and stocked and had every kitchen gadget you could think of! There was plenty of room for all of our guests and different activities that went on,” Lisa explained. “Jen, the owner, was extremely communicative and provided clear answers for all of our many questions leading up to signing the contract and the big day. She was very flexible with us and our needs, and we appreciated that very much. The team is very organized and made our stay and wedding day stress-free! Our guests continue to rave about how beautiful the location was.”

Looking back on their wedding day, the bride shared that one of her most cherished memories included a big surprise for their guests.

“The most memorable moments were our first dance. We surprised everyone with the mambo. We also jumped into the pool at the end of the night! Yes, I changed first!” the bride reminisced.

Even though Lisa has said her “I dos,” she’s still an avid reader of our site.

“We used Marry Me Tampa Bay for inspiration and advice! I loved the blog and advice columns,” the bride shared. “Even though our wedding is over, I still look at the blog often because the featured weddings are so beautiful, and I may need the ideas for when my friends get married!”

What did you look for in a wedding venue?
We wanted to rent a large house so that we could stay on the property with our closest family. It just made it so easy and was nice to have everyone there all the time. We wanted to majority of the décor to be nature with lots of grass, trees, and open space.

Southern Plantation Oasis made all of that possible. It had everything we were looking for in a venue They also allowed us to use any vendors we desired.

How would you describe your theme/wedding design inspiration?
We wanted the day to be special and beautiful, but we went the DIY route to put our special touch on everything, but also to save money for the bigger event, buying a house!

What were your colors?
Lilac, gold, and gray. Lilac is my favorite color! The biggest color scheme was the lilac from things like the bridesmaid dresses and napkins, but we had only small hints of gold and grey in things like our table number frames.
