Dark Vintage Romance
Today’s bride and groom told me they fell in love under the Northern Lights. Their mutual love of nature’s dark beauty and the northern lights was reflected in their wedding theme. This romantic and intimate day with lots of glamorous style brought to reality by Mylez Edward along with Donna Aguis, as the Wedding Planner for this event. They started with a gorgeous gown from Truly Forever Bridal, then off to The Ybor City Garden State Museum which was the perfect location in the heart of Ybor City, a place my couple loves.
The ceremony, at the virtual death of the sunlight was adorned with Beautiful Haunting Trees of Orchids, Stock, Delphinium Hydrangea, & Roses with multiple foliage's and the most opulent ruby glass beaded “Icicles”. The rich purples, reds, and blues used in the bridal party floral and floral arrangements for the ceremony created a moment dramatic, with a moody & bespoke feeling.
A sweetheart table adorned with Mylez’ floral choices of the day and amazing ruby colored glass delicately wrapped with black lace told a story of love and romance in this Gothic love story while the northern lights sparkled behind and above this luminous couple. The guest tables adorned with bronze candelabras and giant cloches accessorized with ebony plates and goblets.
The cake painted to represent the northern lights, by Melissa at Alessi Bakery was a special treat even including the couples beloved pets past and present.
