Working with Jodi and Peter made our Jennifer Matteo Events Planning team smile.
The tea party vibe of their wedding, blended with books and suitcases brought together a vintage feel with elements of world travel.
The 1916 Italian Renaissance Edson Keith Mansion, sitting on the banks of the Phillipi River with swaying palms and moss draped oak trees was the perfect setting for this couple’s Sarasota wedding.
Jodi looked amazing in her lace wedding gown with a sheer bodice that was adorned with modern lace appliques. She carried a handtied bridal bouquet of pink and peach tones with ranunculus, cottage roses, and peonies with touches of dusty miller and wax flower.
Peter wore a classic dark suit with grey vest, a contrasting pale green patterned necktie, and a peach ranunculus boutonniere. Custom cufflinks with their wedding date were the prefect accessory.
After a first look and some photos together, the couple exchanged wedding vows under a canopy of oaks surrounded by family and friends. A beautiful sand ceremony incorporated their children and created a warm, loving family moment.
“Together We Make A Family” perfectly sums up this touching wedding ceremony. After some family photos everyone made their way indoors for the wedding reception.
The dining room was filled with elegant vintage touches that offset the long rustic wooden tables set with vintage china and tea cups. Long low floral centerpieces in the same flowers and greenery as Jodi’s bridal bouquet flowed down the center of each table.
A favorite detail was the couples sweetheart table; a vintage wooden side table draped with lush greenery, tea roses, tulips, succulents and rose gold votive candles. Elegant high back arm chairs with chalk board signs reading “Hers Forever” and “His Always” were a warm personal touch.
A library with dark wood shelves, old books, vintage suitcases and a world map as a guest book set the backdrop for tiered stands of delicious cookies and a two-tiered wedding cake wrapped with modern peach sugar roses.
Jodi and Peter’s wedding day was filled with elegant vintage décor and touching family moments.
Congratulations, we wish you all a lifetime filled with love and happiness.
