Christina and Tony planned the perfect museum wedding. Reason being? Their love was the ultimate work of art on display. I mean, how sweet is that!? An elegant celebration complete with A&P Designs and sentimental meaning, Sunglow Photography captured it all to share and thankfully we can relive each and every moment in The Vault!
From the Bride… Tony and I were married on May 1, 2015, under the shade of a beautiful banyan tree at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since our wedding was in the spring, we wanted it to feel very fresh, natural, and romantic. We used lots of different shades of green along with ivory, champagne, gold, and pops of peach.
We kept our wedding intimate and had fun adding many meaningful, personal touches to the day. I carried the same purse used by my mom on her wedding day. It was lovingly made by my maternal grandmother, who was a wedding dress designer. A picture of my late maternal grandparents proudly hung from my purse along with a “lucky” jade charm from Tony’s grandmother and a gold cross from his aunt.
Instead of having a traditional cake topper, we used a teacup and saucer from an heirloom china set gifted to us by Tony’s parents. Our wedding favors included mini boxes of warm Krispy Kremes, because anyone who knows Tony, knows how much he loves his donuts! And of course, we wrote and exchanged our own wedding vows; we wouldn’t have had it any other way!
What we will treasure most about our wedding day was the overwhelming sense of excitement, love, and support we felt from our friends and family. Everyone was smiling ear-to-ear all day, and it was just so cool to see how happy they were to celebrate our marriage!
