Modern Purple and Orange Museum Wedding in Florida

Posted by Caitlin on Feb 05, 2013

Karina & V.J.

October 20

St. Petersburg, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We love downtown St. Petersburg, and we were looking for an outdoor waterfront venue. When the Dali Museum opened, we knew it was the prefect venue not only because we got engaged in the city, but because of my love of Dali art and my family being from Spain. We have eclectic taste, and the Dali’s unique space gave us beautiful architecture, an outdoor garden with waterfront views and great art!

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites.

1. The live flamenco band.
2. The candlelit reception in the garden, and the gorgeous centerpieces with beautiful, bright circus roses against the eggplant linens and copper and gold accents. We even had FIREWORKS, perfection!
3. Wedding stationary.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about. 

V.J. and I exchanged wedding arras, which are Spanish coins during our ceremony. The coins were from my Abulea’s (grandmother) hometown in Valencia, Spain. Each coin symbolizes the commitments we made to each other: love, trust, respect, joy, happiness, harmony, wisdom, wholeness, nurture, care, cooperation and peace. It was so meaningful for us to carry on this tradition for our family and have these coins as an heirloom.

Wedding Venues 101

Posted by Kim on Jan 15, 2013

Looking for a wedding venue that fits your needs can be one of the trickiest (and unfortunately, stressful) parts of wedding planning. Happily, once you’ve booked your venue, the rest of the planning process will fall into place easily (we promise!). But how do you even start searching for a wedding site? First, you’ll need to pick what venue “style” most suits your personality. Here’s a mini-glossary of wedding venue types to help you get started. And don’t forget to check out our Vendor Reviews to find the perfect wedding locale near you.

Ballroom: Want a wedding that’s grand, elegant, and formal? There’s nothing like a richly appointed ballroom. Ideal for black-tie weddings with a big guest list, ballrooms (either in hotels or other historic sites), often have in-house catering and rentals to make the planning process a snap. But it’s important to note: When choosing a color scheme for a ballroom wedding, you’ll have to take the room’s permanent fixtures into account – from the carpeting to the chandeliers to the wall color. You wouldn’t want your flowers and other decor to clash with what’s already there.
