Wedding style? “Vintage Couture” ~ I like that! An upscale ballroom setting with the glitz and glamour we’ve all come to know and love!
Today’s featured Little Black Book Member is Amy Pezzicara at Pezz Photo in Florida. Before we elaborate about this breathtaking wedding, we want to tell you about one of those “fashion emergencies” that all brides pray won’t happen to them!
from Lindsay, the brave and beautiful bride …
It wouldn’t be a wedding to remember without having a fashion emergency! Just as Amy Pezzicara (my amazing photographer) was about to take some pictures around the hotel with us, my sister went to hand me my purse to fix my lipstick and out fell my glass bottle of foundation which broke and splattered all up the side of my dress! I like to say I was “fashionably an hour late” to my wedding ceremony.
Amy said, “Her bottle of foundation fell out, shattering on the floor and exploding all over her dress. We spent the next 45 minutes removing the makeup with toothbrushes and cleaning fluid. Lindsay kept a smile on her face the whole time!”
Can you imagine?? What a trooper! Apparently she just took it in stride and went on with the festivities!
Lindsay is well versed in unexpected wedding emergencies … she, herself, is a wedding planner|coordinator at the same venue that she was getting married ~ A La Carte Event Pavillion, one of Tampa’s premier event venues!
more from Lindsay …
My dress is a Maggie Sottero called “Jolie”. It was purchased at CC’s Boutique in St. Petersburg, Florida. The dress is an A-line dress accented with glass beads, lace and crystals with a sweetheart neckline. This dress is made from taffeta, which is the only material I wanted to wear. I love taffeta and the noise it makes when you move. To keep with our vintage theme, I chose to wear a birdcage veil, also from CC’s Boutique. They had just acquired this headpiece from a show in France. I loved it immediately and it really finished off the look of my dress. I got the idea to wear blue Kate Spade shoes after watching the Sex and the City movie; Kerri wore blue shoes under her wedding dress for something blue… and I thought, “WOW! I should do that!” The bridesmaid dresses were by Bill Levkoff ~taupe taffeta dresses accented with pale pink and Mary Jane style high heels. I gave them vintage bracelets for their bridesmaids gifts. The guys wore tuxedos from Sacino’s Formal Wear. To go with our “vintage couture” theme, we chose a modern ascot tie (without the puff).
My ceremony inspiration was created by A La Carte Event Pavilion’s event designer Corina Wian-Literski. The concept included a keyhole-shaped ceremony space with a circular wall of fabric. Our ceremony took place in the middle of all our family and friends.
After the ceremony, the fabric was pulled back to reveal our reception room. Amazing!
The tall centerpieces had light pink hydrangeas, pink peonies, pink roses, yellow roses for dimension, light pink tea roses and green spider mums placed on a tall glass pilsner vase accented with vintage pearls. The shorter centerpieces were crystal table candelabras accented with the same flowers as the tall ones. We wanted dimension in the room, so that is why we alternated tall and short centerpieces. Half the guest tables were covered in a light pink linen underlay with an ivory lace overlay. The other half of the guest tables had light pink linens with apple green satin napkins. I choose gold chargers to match the gold chiavari chairs. All stationery on the tables were provided by Paper Players out of Dunedin, Florida.
Amy Pezzicara sent Lindsay’s wedding into us during fashion week. Lindsay’s vintage couture “look” was indeed divine!!
So we want to know … how many of you are planning indoor vintage-styled weddings? And what wedding colors are you planning? Any cool ideas that you’re going to be doing that you’d like to share?
