It's no secret that private residence weddings are on the tippy top of my favorites list. There is something incredibly romantic about beginning your love story in a home environment. Whether your own or someone else's, the history of a private residence tends to enhance the ambiance of the day.
We handled the design, florals and planning for Stacy & Ryan. And this venue set the tone for every single detail & design element. From the paper goods to the waterfront ceremony, the Olde Florida feel was front and center.
This residence was truly breathtaking! A cool detail- the house was built in 1929, and the only way they were able to complete it (during the great depression) was because the original owner had set all the money aside in escrow.
I created the bridal bouquet with mainly white roses and a variety of eucalyptus textures. The bridesmaid's bouquets were either crafted exclusively with greenery or greenery and a subtle white floral accent tied with cascading, smooth gray + white textured ribbon.
Centerpieces were created in rectangular rustic wood boxes with a variety of hearty blooms- including, brunia berries, caspia, white + blush roses, marsala hued ranunculus, white daisies & carnations. Although Daisies and carnations aren't usually in my designs, these worked wonderfully for adding dimension, texture and extra "fluff" in the arrangements, and added a homey feel that enhanced the down-home family feel of the day.
I loved that the reception decor was anchored with crisp, bright white. The family style seating with classic chiavari chairs under a canopy of massive oaks was stunning.
This is just a sneak peak of the wedding day- check back soon for more of the gorgeousness!
