Mira Bay Clubhouse Wedding by FH Weddings & Events
August 26, 2011

We're kicking off your weekend with a sweet as can be Apollo Beach wedding that's sure to keep you smiling until Monday rolls back around.  Filled to the brim with beyond beautiful blooms by FH Weddings & Events, a soft pink and blue color palette and some seriously gorgeous chandeliers, it's elegant meets seaside chic meets very, very fabulous.  And those bamboo canopies?  Love.  All planned to perfection by Polka Dot Weddings & Events (who also happens to be the amazing and talented bride), this soiree is just the way I like to spend my Fridays.  I'll be in the gallery gazing at each and every stunning image captured by Justin DeMutiis Photography, so join me there for all of the pretty!

From FH Weddings & Events... Allison and Andrew’s wedding at Mira Bay was a mixture of charming old Florida with a coastal chic affair.  Allison, owner of Polka Dot Weddings & Events, had planned numerous weddings for other brides. So when her big day came she had experienced all of the vendors she loved and knew the decor ideas that she adored.  We have worked with Allison a number of times at weddings so when she asked us to design the florals for this special day, we were very excited and honored!

The outside ceremony was decorated with rose petals in a twirling pattern down the aisle. Harlow stands welcomed the guests at the ceremony entrance with a large bouquet of soft pink roses.  Each of the aisle chairs had a thick coastal blue sash tied with a single white Hydrangea.  Allison's 5 year old son stood next to Allison and Andrew while they exchanged vows.  Tears were brought to Allison and the guests as they watch Andrew kneel down to present Allison's son with a necklace and let him know he loved  him and would always be there for him.

Bamboo canopies framed the family tables and sweetheart table.  Each had an eclectic collection of specially chosen vases with orchids and Spray Roses. Large sea shells, Manzanita Branches, crystals and flower blooms adorned all of the guest tables, which opened the room up for all of the unique décor chosen by the bride herself. The linens created subtle pops of color to create that soft coastal feeling and the brilliant up lighting, gave the room that charming and intimate detail.  Laughter and love filled the reception as family and friends enjoyed dancing and sharing in the special day of Allison and Andrew!
