Tracy and Andy's downtown St. Pete wedding featured an outdoor garden ceremony and a glittering gold and blush reception with nod's to the bride's Chinese heritage.
For the garden wedding ceremony, beautiful blush pink and white flowers complemented the lush, living greenery. The bridesmaids looked lovely in pastel pink and lilac for the Maid of Honor. Jewels peeped out from unexpected places, including the bride's shoes and in strands of pearls hanging from the florals adorning the white folding chairs.

Hidden gems sparkled at the reception as well, hanging from the extra tall white floral centerpieces, while gold votive candles glittered on the satin pink tables. The exposed brick of downtown St. Pete venue NOVA 535 was the perfect backdrop for the couple's multi-cultural wedding.
Clearly the most eye-catching decor was the traditional Chinese wedding dress decorating the wall above the sweetheart table. In stunning red and gold silk, with Asian characters to either side, it was the perfect way to honor the bride's cultural heritage. The four-tier square white cake, adorned with pink sugar florals and topped with a glittering gold Chinese character, tied the entire reception's theme together.
The couple enjoyed dancing with friends and family to the tunes from Tampa Bay wedding DJ Grant Hemond & Associates, while taking portraits in the many creative spaces of NOVA 535.
