Nora and Adam’s romantic downtown St. Pete wedding featured a combination of classic elements and cultural traditions.  The St. Petersburg couple chose to host their celebration in the Bayshore Drive district because they wanted their guests to experience all the things they loved about their hometown, while also incorporating their favorite cuisine and music to tie it all together.

When selecting a color palette for her romantic affair, Nora started with her favorite metallic hue, gold.

“I’ve always been a gold kinda girl, and navy is such a bold and beautiful color that pairs so nicely with gold,” the bride shared. “Blush was that perfect pop of color for spring.”

Nora admitted not knowing much about flora before planning her wedding, and she sought a St. Pete florist with expertise in the industry who could create an elegant spring ambiance. Upon meeting Bruce Wayne Florals, she knew their team would bring her vision to life.

“As someone who really could not describe what she wanted and who doesn’t know much about flowers, they completely guided me into designing the florals of my dreams,” the bride gushed. “Their shop is extraordinary, and they have such beautiful pieces that you can use throughout your wedding decor. They were just perfection! The flowers absolutely made the day and transformed both the ceremony and reception spaces. We received so many compliments from our guests on the florals. Bruce Wayne Florals blew me away! ”

As self-proclaimed foodies, the couple knew a generous, family-style meal would give their guests an opportunity to socialize while enjoying a delicious dinner together, and Olympia Catering created a custom menu that left everyone happily satisfied.

“We wanted everyone to feel comfortable at their tables and interact with the people they were sitting with. The meal was filled with variety and was very hearty; there was no way we would let anyone be hungry!” Nora beamed. “We are so happy with Olympia’s service! The food was delicious, and their service was impeccable!”

To top off their night, the couple offered guests a sweet ending to the evening, a bountiful dessert display and an impressive three-tier wedding cake courtesy of Alessi Bakery.

“As someone with a huge sweet tooth, a dessert table was really important to me. Simple and delicious were our two requirements, and Alessi was top notch!” the bride shared. “It looked beautiful and was very tasty!”

The Proposal:
We were in Philadelphia around Christmas time visiting my sister and her family. We went to the City Hall area because the entire area is converted into this magical Christmas scene with gorgeous lights, food vendors, ice skating rink, and more. Adam suggested we take a picture in front of the enormous Christmas tree, and before I could say cheese, he turned and got down on one knee!

How would you describe your theme/wedding design inspiration?
Classic and romantic. I really wanted something elegant, classic, and timeless!

What were your colors?
Navy, gold, and blush. I’ve always been a gold kinda girl, and navy is such a bold and beautiful color that pairs so nicely with gold. Blush was that perfect pop of color for spring.
