Modern, Vintage Emerald Green, Black and Blush Styled Wedding Shoot | Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club

Modern, Vintage Tampa Wedding | Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club Wedding

This styled shoot at New Tampa wedding venue Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club showcases a new wedding trend that we’re noticing, the mix of modern and vintage elements.

“I think that when someone hears ‘vintage rentals’ visions of your grandmother’s favorite sofa, vintage china with busy patterns or primitive old antiques, like trunks and crates start dancing through your head. While I love these things, vintage rentals can really be more versatile than that,” Cassandra VanCuren, owner of Ever After Vintage Weddings explained. “When coming up with the concept of this shoot, I wanted to demonstrate how common vintage items can be used in a way that appeals to a more clean modern look.”

While the theme was natural fit for the wedding designer, the colors were more of a challenge.

“A fun fact about me, black and green are actually colors I really don’t care for! However, a dear friend gifted me with a set of really pretty Princess House Fantasia emerald green plates and goblets, and I actually liked the shade of green. I think a big part of the color selection was due to the plates, but also I wanted to challenge myself to work with something outside of my comfort zone,” Cassandra shared. “Now blush I love! I added the blush because it helped to soften the bolder colors. I enjoyed creating in unfamiliar territory and left the shoot with a new found appreciation for black and green!”

To highlight how a vintage wedding decor complements more elegant wedding venues, Cassandra chose Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club.

“Tampa Palms was a great fit! Inside offered a beautiful blank canvas which allowed our colors to really stand out! The large windows and light walls made for really great natural light for photos,” she gushed. “I also love photos with a beautiful simple green backdrop which was no problem since there was plenty of room to roam outside. The wedding venue was great for the classy and neutral feel I was looking for in a location, and their staff was so courteous and welcoming!”

One of the designer’s favorite subtle decor elements from this styled wedding shoot included a bold summer fruit.

“The blackberries were such a fun accent, offering a pop of contrast to the table. While it might not be as practical to sprinkle blackberries down your wedding table, I think having small dishes of fruit on the tables with a few fallen berries here and there would offer a fun treat for your guest and a great alternative to candy. Especially, if your favorite fruit is in season!” Cassandra shared.

How would you describe your theme?
I would consider the style or theme to be modern vintage.

I think that when someone hears “vintage rentals” visions of your grandmother’s favorite sofa, vintage china with busy patterns or primitive old antiques, like trunks and crates start dancing through your head. While I love these things, vintage rentals can really be more versatile than that.
