A Ritz-Carlton affair!

Our favorite thing is getting professional images of the work we have done for weddings. We never post 'un-professional' images, as our basic point and shoot cameras just never do the work justice! :)

With that being said, we just received a couple of images from a wedding we did back in March at The Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, FL.

This wedding was just stunning and when the ceremony and reception rooms were completely, it looked truly beautiful.

~The Ceremony~

The plan was initally to have the ceremony under a tent on the beach, however, unfortunately due to the weather the ceremony had to be moved inside. Considering the change, we still think it ended up looking beautiful. For the ceremony we created custom handmade, manicured boxwood 'hedges' to create a defined aisle, each boxwood hedge was topped with white hydrangea to create a very structured and manicured look. The boxwood hedges were then connected with white rose petals and hurricanes housing pillar candles.

The ceremony structure was also created out of boxwood with the addition of cherry blossom branches, white phaelenopsis and dendrobium orchids, white hydrangeas, etc. accented with hanging candles.

~The Reception~

The overall color scheme and theme for the wedding can only be described as a beautiful salute to Spring! Pale pink and celery green were the featured colors accented with shades of pink and pale peach. We also punctuated the room with gorgeous 12-15ft. tall palm trees designed with matching floral at the trunks of each tree.

In the centerpices we used beautiful antique green hydrangeas, blush and pale pink peonies, pink garden roses, pink tulips and roses, peach roses, pale peach amaryllis and beautiful pink cherry blossom branches.

We loved the combination of colors and textures as well as the use of natural chivari chairs with matching celery green chair pads and napkins.

Many thanks to Mary and Janet with Mary Kenealy Events for allowing Botanica to be apart of such a fabulous wedding!
