From Justin DeMutiis PhotographyLindsay and Dennis began their adventure one magical night in Hong Kong. With just one look and a smile, their lives were changed forever. With a shared love of cooking and traveling together, this international couple, Lindsay from Pennsylvania and Dennis from Sweden would share their two loves and create a celebration of memories that will last a lifetime!

Lindsay and Dennis selected the one and only Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida as the place they would declare their love openly to each other in front of their nearest and dearest family and friends. The day was full of love and emotion beginning with sweet moments while everyone was getting to Lindsay’s grand entrance into the ceremony. She entered the ceremony to a beautifully played, “Happiness Does Not End” by Olafur Arnalds, a song that was very meaningful to them both. Dennis met Lindsay as she was walking the aisle and the two completed their walk together to become husband and wife. They each declared their own personal written vows to each other and exchanged rings. They were married!

The celebration continued while guests enjoyed the Bride’s Bellini and the Groom’s Gin and Tonic as signature cocktails as well as an assortment of passed hors d’eouvres during the cocktail hour. The space was filled with candles and soft hues to capture the love of Lindsay and Dennis. The dinner experience was extremely important to Lindsay and Dennis. So the groom relied on his brother, a chef and his Best Man to create a customized five course dinner and his sister to pair each course with a specialty cocktail. The Swedes and American’s enjoyed Swedish songs and toasts to the bride and groom along with heartfelt speeches shared by their loved ones throughout the dinner. The tables were exquisite with soft florals and candles galore, it was the perfect back drop to this fun filled evening. As the final dessert and cordials were served it was ready to move to the dance floor; where the guests danced the rest of the night away!

It was a magical beginning for Lindsay and Dennis and would become the start to their new adventure as husband and wife!

Romantic + Elegant Blush Wedding at The Powel Crosley Estate

Florida weather is infamous for its unpredictability, but this couple had the best attitude about it: “When the wind picked up moments before our ceremony, they told us our marriage would be a breeze.” Don’t you just love that? That’s only the beginning of the loveliness, captured by Justin DeMutiis Photography. With gorgeous details designed and executed by the Bride’s graphic-designer sister and a stunning setting, you’re going to fall in love with it all in the gallery.

From The Bride… One early Saturday morning, soon after we had gotten engaged, I dragged my sleepy husband-to-be down to Sarasota to tour the estate. We fell in love with the estate immediately and talked about our new venue the entire drive back, planning where we should have our ceremony and where we should put the bar. We knew we wanted to say our vows down by the water and cover the dance floor with a starburst of cafe bulbs.

I soon learned that my younger sister, Jennifer, a graphic designer, had an interest and amazing gift in styling weddings. She worked endless hours to both design and create most of the items for our special day. Jennifer designed and laser cut our invitations, which included a sneak peak of our new monogram and dahlias, one of my favorite flowers that were also included in our bouquets. She incorporated our new monogram throughout the decor, including on our cake topper, menus, and our koozie wedding favors. She added a hint of elegance by painting the cake topper, ceremony signs, and table numbers a glittery gold. Our double lined place cards featured the guests name on a frosted paper over a blush table number.

We could not be more thankful for our wedding planners, Jennifer and Natalie of Burkle Events. They kept so calm and made me feel so special as if I was their very best friend. They genuinely cared to make everything perfect for us. They suggested most of our vendors, including the vendor who tailored my dress and went above and beyond to custom create and sew my favorite detail from the entire day, my floor length lace veil.

Our Rabbi traveled from my hometown from the opposite coast of Florida to officiate. Our huppah was made out of birchwood and featured the same garden roses, hydrangeas, and lambs ear as in our bouquets and centerpieces. Hydrangeas hanging in mercury glass from the chairs lined the aisle. When the wind picked up moments before our ceremony, they told us our marriage would be a breeze.

During dinner the mercury glass candle pillars and the cafe bulbs created a romantic setting as the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. After everyone joined us on the dance floor for the horah, our DJ kept everyone there for the rest of the night and our families and friends danced the night away underneath the stars.
