This wonderful “English Garden” inspired wedding held at the Rennaissance Vinoy in St. Petersburg, Florida was one of our favorites in 2014. We paired warm nougat-colored damask linens with white and ivory floral details to perfectly complement the Vinoy Grand Ballroom’s neutral palette and historic architecture. Hundreds of taper candles were lit throughout the space giving one the sense that they stepped into the Vinoy’s historic ballroom and, simultaneously, back in time.
This event gave us the chance to enjoy the beauty of natural elements and greens; the throwback, vintage style of the loose arrangements were created by incorporating stock, snapdragons, queen anne’s lace and silver dollar eucalyptus to give the centerpieces some movement while retaining a classic feel – with each tall centerpieces being set atop a beautiful crystal candlestick, crystal facets showcased the dance of candlelight on each table.
The couple’s incredible feasting table featured a mix of high and low centerpieces and a spectacular display of candles down the length of the tablescape and finished with petite floral arrangements set in footed, vintage glass giving the table texture, depth and (of course) sparkle.
The space was finished with an elegant ivory vinyl dance floor cover for a beautiful, seamless space where the couple, their family and friends, danced the night away!
