Classic Teal and Coral Treasure Island Wedding

Colleen and Adam’s Treasure Island wedding featured a teal and coral palette to complement their waterfront wedding venue.

“Our theme was traditional and classic. Both of us wanted something simple, nothing too over the top,” the bride shared. “We knew the venue had open windows, which would be a great backdrop, and we didn’t want anything to overpower that.” 

With the wedding venue secured, the Dunedin couple searched for a St. Petersburg wedding photographer with a clean, natural style to capture their big day.

“Ailyn’s pictures [of Ailyn La Torre Photography] were bright and used the natural light I liked. They didn’t see too staged either, everyone looked relaxed,” Colleen shared. “She really cared about making everything smooth and seamless for us and that was a big help.”

To keep any last minute issues to a minimum, Colleen and Adam hired St. Petersburg wedding planner Kimberly Hensley Events.

“We looked for someone who was extremely organized who wouldn’t need much direction from us once everything was handed off,” the bride explained. “Even before we hired Kimberly [of Kimberly Hensley Events], she sent me a video of a wedding she planned at our venue. She didn’t have to send that; we hadn’t given her any commitment. She also sent me a full outline of the wedding schedule, so I could see what a timeline might look like. It really helped to see what she would take off of our plates and that helped make the decision easy.”

Waterfront, Country Inspired Wedding | Palmetto Wedding

Meghann and Tadd’s Sarasota area wedding represented the couple’s country roots with mason jars,wildflower centerpieces and pie instead of wedding cake.

“Everything in our wedding had some type of meaning; it made the whole day very special to us,” the bride shared. “The locket I had on came over from Denmark with my family, and every woman in the family wears it on their wedding day. Also, the picture we had displayed was of my great grandparents; we ended up having the same wedding day! Total coincidence!”

With graduate school and a full-time job on her plate, the bride relied on Sarasota wedding planner Nichole Leonard Designs to make sure her wedding day went smoothly.

Nikki [of Nichole Leonard Designs] totally understood who we were and what we wanted,” Meghann gushed. “Once we met, she said she had a place she thought would be perfect for me and Tadd. When Nikki showed us the Manatee Riverhouse, my fiance and I looked at each other and we just knew she was the ‘one!’

With the help of their wedding planner, the St. Petersburg couple looked for a wedding photographer who made them feel comfortable in front of the camera.

“I went through Southern Elegance Events to find the photographer because I totally trusted my planner,” the bride explained. “Jillian Joseph Photography was amazing! Jill and I totally clicked; She was absolutely wonderful!
