The beautiful Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida is always a pleasure to work with. The historic home has so much charm and romance, which of course is what Melissa and Harry were drawn to when they chose this venue for their wedding celebration. The talented team with Special Moments Event Planning made sure that the day was perfectly planned and kept everyone on schedule from start to finish. And thanks to the always outstanding Rhodes Studios, the happy couple has the entire day documented for years to come.
For the ceremony, the couple were married on the beautiful terrace at Powel Crosley Estate. It was a perfect setting for this perfect day. With wonderful bouquets of cascading white floral and greenery spilling down the stairs , it made for a romantic greeting for the bride upon arrival to ceremony. Then, we dressed the two main columns that would frame the couple as they exchanged vows with a wonderful organic design on fresh floral and greenery accenting the columns for the ceremony but not over doing and taking away from the gorgeous building itself.
For Melissa’s bouquet, we designed a loose Boho inspired bouquet of wonderful white Dahlia blooms, white Ranunculus floral with fragrant stock blossoms, white Veronica all infused with fresh Lavender. A wonderful assortment of fresh greenery with Olive branch foliage being a main request from the bride. For Harry’s pinned boutonniere, he wore a double bloom of white Ranunculus floral, accented with the fresh lavender and olive branch foliage to match his blushing bride.
The bridal attendants carried bouquets that were similar in floral design as Melissa’s but were scaled down in size. The groomsmen wore complimenting pinned boutonnieres but without the lavender accented. This was definitely a very dashing wedding party.
For the reception, we continued with the romantic, Tuscan feeling. The tables were covered with lush garland of fresh greenery that included assorted eucalyptus foliage and olive branch greenery, with white floral and a touch of fresh lavender tucked in throughout. As the guests enjoyed the evening, the newlyweds mingled and danced the night away. It was an evening for all to remember.
