Top it all off with a stunning black and gold color palette, and we are giving this gallery from Kallima Photograph one heck of a standing ovation.

From Kallima PhotographyBianca and Giovanni took their wedding day and made it their own. A little bit classic, a lot romantic, with a theme centered around “xoxo” and a custom monogram for their day. The monogram showed up on all the paperie and banners. XOXO confetti spilled out of the invitation suite, and was scattered on top of most of the decor tables.

The Circle Room at the Powel Crosley provided the most gorgeous backdrop for Bianca to slip into her stunning lace Allure trumpet gown. Giovanni stayed classic in a black Vera Wang tux with the always stylish bow-tie.

Sarah at One Fine Day coordinated the entire day flawlessly, and also provided the gorgeous florals that enveloped the white tent for the reception. Whites, greens, blacks, crystal and sparkle. I loved the anemone’s in the bridesmaids bouquets, and the black and white striped accenting picture frames on the welcome table. Instax cameras were set out for guests to take photographs of themselves, and you could also write a note and hang them on a gold painted wood tree.

The dessert table was covered with a variety of yummy cupcakes, and succulents in vintage gold vases made the tables shimmer in the sunset light. The menu’s were simply white with black lettering, with a rosemary sprig accenting the top.

Bistro lights lit the dance floor under the stars, and heartfelt toasts didn’t leave a dry eye in the place. One toast especially by the best man, paid tribute and a moment of silence to Giovanni’s father who passed away unexpectedly within the year.

After hours of dancing and the dance floor was still going strong, McDonald’s cheeseburgers and hot Apple Pie’s arrived for guests to refuel..it was literally the best idea ever. For the exit, the bride and groom ran through a shower of rose petals while the best man followed behind them with a boom-box playing their favorite tune. All in all, a completely magical and personal event.

From The Bride…Our wedding took place on a beautiful spring day (March 1, 2014) in Sarasota, Florida in a plush, green botanical garden. It was the most magical day – it almost seemed as if the heaven’s were shining down on us. The weather was absolutely perfect – 78 degrees, with zero humidity, and lots of sunshine. You could smell the aroma of blooming flowers all around the gardens. There was a light breeze that kept our guest cool, and made my veil dance as I walked down the aisle with my father, which was one of the most anticipated, and memorable, walks of my life. Our ceremony was very emotional and full of love. There were lots of laughs, and happy tears. My mom, sister and I put together almost all of our decorations, including the homemade burlap/lace tablecloth overlays on each reception table. It was the epitome of southern elegance. I had a unique charm attached to my bouquet of my Mema (Dad’s mom) who passed away nearly 20 years ago. My brother surprised me by playing the guitar and singing a slow country song at the beginning of our reception. It was one of the most touching experiences of my life…I’ll never forget it. My husband and I, who have been together for 6 years, were SO happy to share this perfect day with our friends and family. We had known every single person in our bridal party for at least 10 years. They all hold a special place in our lives. Our guests continue to talk about how awesome our wedding day was, and we couldn’t agree more!

Sweet Sarasota Wedding at The Ringling Ca’ D’Zan Mansion

Lovely doesn’t even come close to describing this sweet Sarasota wedding beautifully captured by Divine Light Photography. Not even close. In fact, I’m not sure there is a single adjective that will do this beauty justice. Designed by MMD Events, this gallery is light-filled perfection. See even more here.

From the Bride and Groom…We met on e-Harmony. She was overcome with temptation when she saw he was taking ballroom dance lessons and has two hairless cats named Dudeman and Girlfriend. He was instantly intrigued by her picture on a standup paddle board requesting responses only from men with their head on straight. He skipped the prefabbed questionnaire, emailed her directly, and the rest is e-Harmony history.

We are a pretty carefree couple, not much into formalities, so we think it took friends and family by surprise that we chose the gorgeous Ringling Ca’ D’Zan as our venue. Most probably thought we’d elope. Our only criteria was to be outside, simple, and quaint. We love the outdoors. When we saw the Ca’ D’Zan, it was hard to consider any other place. The venue captured our free spirit…totally free within bounds. The Ca’ D’Zan is on the water, outside, classic, elegant, and needed nothing else to make it perfect. The ceremony was by the banyan trees and our party was out by the water, with a historic mansion as our backdrop. Not being the social butterfly of all couples, we opted for a sweetheart table (we skirted temptation to have the table roped off).

We really cannot take any credit for how our wedding turned out other than finding the venue, choosing a “wedding team” that we liked, and choosing light green and light pink as our colors. Spending a little bit of time with everyone on our wedding team went a long way. I think we were most passionate about taking pictures of our four cats (now a blended family) for our table centerpieces. We spent countless hours putting sticky numbers on them, chasing them down, and taking pictures. People who know us best appreciated that little touch. Our day was perfect and the way it was captured was perfect too.
