As 2018 came to a close our Jennifer Matteo Event Planning team was excited to bring Joy and Craig’s blush and gold beach wedding vision to life.
Their Lido Beach Resort wedding on Sarasota’s Lido Key was an amazing reflection of their love for each other.
Joy and Craig chose not to see each other prior to their wedding ceremony on the resort’s private white sand beach.
Joy took some time in her suite for some wedding portraits and to take in the gulf views and their wedding ceremony space below.
The bride carried a handtied bridal bouquet of white peonies, roses and ranunculus accented by dusty miller; the perfect accent to her white lace wedding gown.
Joy, escorted by her youngest son, made her way to the waterfront wedding ceremony where Craig and their guests waited for her arrival.
The ceremony space was marked with a blond wood wedding structure with a covering of flowers in white and shades of pale pink. The ground in front of the structure had two large gold tone garden urns filled with filled with flowers, which was repurposed after the wedding ceremony to flank the sweetheart table.
After exchanging their wedding vows the couple exited to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars and spent some time together taking some beautiful wedding portraits on the Sarasota beach.
The couple and their wedding guests made their way to the resorts’ Royal Palm Ballroom. The space was dressed in soft lighting with gold ballroom chairs, gold rimmed charger plates and gold votive candles.
The room was accented in in soft pink linen with matching napkins and centerpieces of pink and white flowers.
One of our favorite details was their sweetheart table with an asymmetric floral centerpiece, fabric chair treatments and lighting that made it appear to be floating.
The reception included some touching speeches, amazing food and dancing and the night ended with delicious wedding cake, desserts and chocolate dipped strawberries.
