Corinne and John
Sometimes you just have a great, initial feeling about a wedding client. That was so true for Corinne and her mom, Delight, who hired us a December 2017 wedding at Powel Crosley Estate.
Their vision was simple: Corinne and fiancé, John, just wanted a romantic, intimate celebration with family and friends.
The Powel Crosley Estate and Mansion is pretty much a blank canvas with lots of Spanish styling indoors and around the grounds. It appeared a bit overwhelming at first, but Corinne was able to convey her ideas that translated into a lovely lavender, lilac, white, plum, and platinum design.
The wedding day began with getting ready in the bridal suite.
The relaxing atmosphere made the hours go by smoothly as photographer Jason Angelini captured many special moments around the estate.
We assisted with wedding planning, and day of coordination for the ceremony and reception. We utilized many of our in-house décor items to accent the sign-in table, guest tables, and other display tables.
Corinne and her mom furnished signage and other elements.
During social hour they offered blankets for any guests who wanted some extra "warmth" during the outdoor activities.
The ceremony was held on the terrace facing the back of the mansion. The silver Chiavari chairs were first used for the ceremony and then moved indoors for the guest tables
The social hour was held in the pavilion area along the shores of Sarasota Bay. Our servers presented creative hand-passed hors d'oeuvres to guests even if they were nearby admiring the sunset.
Meanwhile, the couple enjoyed some relaxing moments of candid photo taking.
Indoors, we were finishing up touches on the main reception. Corinne chose a very simple, yet elegant guest table design with all white floor length tablecloths, a triple runner combination of lavender and lilac, and our white carriage lanterns flanked by Beveva Florists' greenery.
The sweetheart table was set in front of the fireplace. We utilized many of the bridal bouquets to accent this table.
The buffet dinner was set up in an adjoining room and featured our favorite Paella.
Most of the formal festivities were held on the back terrace. This included the intros and all dances along with cake cutting and main dancing.
Even though a bit of rain dampened the terrace, it did not affect the party spirit for the rest of the evening.
Congrats to Corinne and John!
