With the right design team, you can create any look at any venue, including transforming an outdoor Tampa Bay space into a European celebration with delightful details like custom cookies and adorable puppies!
“The theme was a whimsical, romantic, garden wedding. I wanted to create a classic, European inspired wedding right here in Florida,” wedding planner Anna Taylor, owner of Toasted Affairs, shared. “I wanted to create a fairytale wedding with charming details. I love elevating classic wedding traditions to fit modern trends!”
This Spring inspired styled wedding shoot incorporated pastel hues, vintage furniture accents, watercolor invitations and stationery, and a colorful dessert table.
“We had pressed flowers in the acrylic pieces and on the cookies,” the planner explained of the unique sweets and stationery pieces.
The “bride” donned a stunning designer wedding dress from Truly Forever Bridal SRQ featuring an ivory and champagne lace and off the shoulder neckline that would flatter any decolletage, while the ballgown's full skirt created a flowy movement in portraits and the cathedral veil completed the ethereal look.
Leveling up their style game, the bride and groom were accompanied by two dapper dogs dressed in tuxedos with the help of Tampa Bay pet planners FairyTail Pet Care.
“My favorite elements were the FairyTail Pet Care dogs in their suits, the vintage blue desk for the dessert table, and the detail shots created by the photographer,” the planner beamed.
The reception featured a vintage china cabinet that doubled as a seating chart with calligraphy names and table numbers on the dishes, mismatched chairs, and colored glasses that added to the garden charm.
Pops of color were found throughout this whimsical styled shoot, especially on the purple-pink four-tier wedding cake dripping with sugar flowers and leaves, complementing the romantic atmosphere.
What were your favorite elements of this shoot?
My favorite elements were the FairyTail Pet Care dogs in their suits, the vintage blue desk for the dessert table, and the detail shots created by the photographer.
The stationer created some beautiful decor: an invitation, envelope, hand-painted plate seating chart, and acrylic escort cards. We had pressed flowers in the acrylic pieces and on the cookies. The table/decor rentals did an amazing job dressing the table to tie in all the colors and elements of the shoot.
