I have one very serious case of shoe envy this morning and it’s all thanks to a pretty pair of fabulous (plus sparkly) flower-adorned heels. Yes, I am in love. Even better, they happen to be just one part of a Sarasota affair simply brimming with darling details, including gorgeous blooms by MMD Events, beautiful bridesmaid frocks and a vintage meets French countryside theme. Swoon. Thankfully, Pezz Photo was on hand to capture every last ounce of pretty… and that means an entire day of gallery gazing for me. So, join me there for even more lovely and then stay tuned for an amazing video from Tampa Wonderworks Films below!
And just when you thought you couldn’t adore this wedding any more than you already do, we have one very fabulous film from Tampa Wonderworks Films to make you fall even more in love. Enjoy!
From Pezz Photo… Paige and Matt were all about the details with a touch of whimsy. Their French Countryside wedding took place in June at the historic, waterfront Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida. As guests arrived, they were greeted with the Old Ball and Chain Gazette whose headline read, “You Made It!”. This newspaper was created by the bride and groom outlining the day’s events along with hilarious bios of the wedding party.
For the ceremony a variety of vintage mix-matched chairs and church pews were incorporated into the estates natural beauty. Above the bride and groom hung a simple yet lovely garland of ivy and tree fern. The ceremony furniture was then transitioned around the property for a non-traditional reception.
Adding on the uniqueness of this event, guests who grew moustaches for the wedding were treated as VIPs all night. Dark mahogany bars with bakers racks and artisan breads added to the French countryside feel. In lieu of a traditional photo booth the bride and groom opted for a vintage set-up of a small dresser which held an instant camera, a scrap book, and a chalkboard as a back drop for personalized messages. As the sun set a pre-arranged fireworks display kicked off the party as a surprise to the bride and groom.
