Chelsea and Chris are an awesome, fun, adventurous couple; they gave us a color palette and we were able work from those colors to bring their wedding day to life.
Chelsea’s bouquet of burgundy and cream with rich golden accents and ribbon mixed with eucalyptus and succulents stood out against her lace wedding gown with cascading organza ruffles.
Chris kept his look classic with a traditional black vested tuxedo with a notch collar and a simple white pocket square.
Their Sarasota wedding began at the beautiful Long Boat Island Chapel, located right off Sarasota Bay. The gazebo with its brick walkways and lush topical trees and gardens set the perfect backdrop for Chelsea and Chris’ outdoor wedding ceremony.
Soft violin music and a special presentation of their wedding rings set the stage for them to exchange their wedding vows.
Their rich colors were carried throughout their special day in the bridesmaid’s flowers, ceremony décor and elements of their wedding reception.
The outdoor wedding reception was hosted at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium; this waterfront location showcases everything that is special about Sarasota and her islands.
Chelsea and Chris are so in love and it really shows. They loved spending time alone and their amazing wedding images really capture their love for each other and the fun they have together.
They closed out their special night escaping in a vintage car, matching their color palate, of course.
Congratulations Chelsea and Chris, our team at Jennifer Matteo Event Planning loved creating the wedding of your dreams.
