Whimsical Art Deco Meets Tropical Wedding Inspiration | Centre Club

 

Tampa Bay Wedding Planning Advice Group

2020 is the year for art deco themed Tampa Bay weddings (think 1920s meets the modern age).

Tampa wedding planner and designer John Campbell of John Campell Weddings updated the unique wedding style for this tropical meets trendy inspiration shoot at the Centre Club.

“I always tell my clients to work with the aesthetic of their venue rather than against it. As a planner and designer, it’s one of the most important pieces of advice I can give, and it was the foundation of this shoot,” John explained. “I felt that the atrium ceremony space had so much personality that really needed to be shown off. The fountain gave me major art deco vibes, but, in my opinion, the array of palm trees and tropical foliage didn’t really lend itself to a classic ‘Gatsby’ look.”

The modern Westshore wedding venue just completed a ballroom refresh and to highlight its new facelift John Campell Weddings created a wedding inspiration shoot that was swanky and trendy, yet relaxed. His creative concepts focused on both the planning and florals, which resulted in a modern, whimsical design.

Designing a look that was more of an updated art-deco vibe rather than Gatsby, the planning team incorporated accent draping that enhanced the swanky ambiance of the ceremony and reception space and minimalistic ghost chairs and velvet table linens from rental company Gabro Event Services, while Tampa wedding decor and rental company, Kate Ryan Event Rentals set the mood with gorgeous tabletop rentals. The gold-rimmed glasses were the perfect complement to the glass chargers and gold silverware.

“Moving into the reception space, there were so many marine elements: views of the bay, driftwood installations, and a beautiful color palette of muted blues. It was kind of an ‘Aha!’ moment at that point: an updated art deco look with a monochromatic blue color palette and heavy tropical foliage,” John gushed. “Gold accents, clean angles, and sharp contrasts in tones and shades give that touch of art deco, while a small detail like a menu can make that design choice obvious without getting too ‘theme-y.’ Geometric candle holders, velvet linen, ghost chairs, and trendy painted florals modernize the look. Details like a cake pop cake and blue cocktails give a light-hearted, fun feel to the event.”

Located just down the street at Westshore Mall, wedding dress boutique Truly Forever Bridal selected sophisticated, yet relaxed attire for the couple. Sleek lines and rhinestone accents adorned the bride’s gown while her natural curls and beauty were brought out from the glam squad at Michele Renee the Studio.

Capturing all the details, Tampa wedding photographer Carrie Wildes Photography brought to life the design elements and couple’s natural chemistry, while Resurgent Fire Films recorded the movement of the day.

Complementing the gold and blue centerpieces, Sweetly Dipped Confections created an ombre-effect cake pop wedding cake, adding to the whimsical atmosphere.
