Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club Wedding with White Flowers

My favorite look for a wedding is all white flowers with only a hint of color. The wedding at Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club exemplified classic elegance with white hydrangea, white stock, blush pink lilies and dendrobium orchids with cascading spirea. As daytime turned to evening, the flowers still looked beautiful under the candlelight and darker flowers will sometimes just disappear. There was a hint of fragrance that only added to the look of the wedding.

Wedding Flowers at The Museum of Fine Arts in St Petersburg Florida

St Petersburg Florida is a popular place for destination weddings and the Museum of Fine Arts is the perfect venue. It is a light and airy space and your guests are treated to viewing the Museum during the reception. I loved the colors and the flower choices. The Bride and Groom chose- vanda orchids in shades of orange and pops of vintage aqua to create a look that was all their own. Great look and of course all of that was captured by Shannon Livingston at
Fabulous photographer with a great sense of style . Thank you for your generosity . We appreciate your images!!

Wedding Flowers at Andrew Memorial Chapel and Dunedin Country Club

Every wedding is special to us but when we get to design flowers for someone we know- we are honored. I have known Melissa since she was a little girl and when she met Ken- we all knew from the beginning it would have a happy ending. We would have hung flowers from the rafters for her , but in keeping with her vintage style and taste- we kept it simple. Cream hydrangea, green viburnum , mini green hydrangea and roses. We placed a heart wreath on the chapel doors to greet her guests and the pails of flowers on the ends of the pews that became her table centerpieces later at Dunedin Country Club. Melissa and Ken are both gracious and loving people and their wedding is one I will remember always. Thank you for including us!!
All the gorgeous images were graciously provided by Shannon Livingston Galleries.
