Real Wedding : a warm and inviting elegant Florida fall wedding

Today's gorgeous real wedding was designed by UNIQUE Event Design for Threasa & Justin in St. Petersburg, FL. Their fall themed wedding featured gerber daises throughout the event as the bride is a big fan of the flower. The bridesmaids wore mocha and pumpkin colored dresses and carried multi-colored bouquets. Threasa & Justin's wedding ceremony took place in Hollis Gardens, overlooking Lake Mirror. Afterwards, guests were greeted by a table of escort cards and wine cork holders upon entering the Magnolia Building. There was even a crystal wish tree where the guests wrote their well wishes on cards and then hung them from the tree. I'm loving these colors together - the perfect fall wedding.

The guest tables featured warm tones, mahogany chavari chairs, and rustic arrangements. Each guest was treated to a leaf wine bottle cork. The table numbers were cut from wood by the groom himself.

The sweetheart table was positioned in front of the fireplace - so romantic. There was a "D" made of sticks mounted on the wall, for the couple's last name. UNIQUE Event Design added touches of Fall throughout the Magnolia Building with candles, berries, branches, etc.

The cake was on the stage and sat atop a bed of branches. The void space was filled in with bunches of branches and hanging votives.

For the first dance, the bride & groom began a typical slow dance then went into an "Evolution of Dance!"
