Kaitlin and Pete’s lavish, waterfront Tampa wedding ceremony at the Rusty Pelican, followed by a ballroom reception featured tall centerpieces, dramatic ceiling draping and elegant chiavari chairs and chargers.
The bride chose a romantic palette of pink, gold, blush and white with extravagant centerpieces from Tampa wedding florist Northside Florist.
“Northside Florist blew me away. Kathy was professional, easy to talk to and really listened to what I wanted delivered,” the bride gushed. “It says something when even the guys were commenting on flowers left and right.”
The gold candelabra wedding centerpieces with shades of pink hydrangeas, roses and baby’s breath were accented with draped crystal beading. The combination of long feasting tables mixed with rounds added to the wow factor of the waterfront reception space.
How would you describe your theme?
What were your colors?
I wanted a soft, elegant, and romantic look. Blush, pink, gold, white and a pop of grey/blue to tie it all together. The bridesmaid’s dresses were larkspur.
It was the day after Christmas, and we had made plans to meet up with his out-of-town college friends at Pete’s parents’ beach condo in Redington Shores, FL. When we got to the beach, Pete told me his friends would not be joining us and that he brought me out here to ask for my hand in marriage. Ultimately, we made it a family affair when Pete had both families out for an intimate post proposal after party. It was one of the most emotional and happiest days of my life.
What did you look for in a wedding florist?
Affordable, but unforgettable. It says something when even the guys were commenting on flowers left and right.
