Real Wedding ~ Simina and Steve

New York couple Simina and Steve chose the sunshine state for their destination nuptials at the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club photographed by La Dolce Vita Studio. Simina found her strapless gown at Kleinfeld in Manhattan and fell in love with its richly embroidered bodice and asymmetrically ruffled skirt. She added a deep lavender-gray sash and a dazzling pair of diamond drop earrings by Kwiat. The event was designed in a palette of varied violets, purples and lavenders with green accents and a white base. Simina carried a bouquet of mostly white with hints of lavender, including orchids and hydrangea and a deep green leafy collar. Her bridesmaids wore deep violet floor length gowns and carried bouquets of hyacinth, hydrangea, plum tulips and vibrant green orchids. Steve and his groomsmen wore slim gray pinstriped two-button suits with lavender striped ties and boutonnieres made of a single orchid. The ceremony was held in the fountain courtyard of the Mediterranean-inspired resort, where stunning ocean views were framed by foral garland strung between two white lamp posts. White garden chairs created a dramatic aisle hung with green button mum pomanders on lavender ribbon.

The reception took place in the ballroom of the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club with tables draped in pale lavender linens paired with chocolate brown chivari chairs padded with white cushions. Riverside Flowers and Event Design created a mixture of centerpieces ranging from tall arrangements of hydrangea, tulips, branches, leafy green accents and amaranthus to low arrangements of similar florals set in ornate silver vessels surrounded by flickering votives. Paper goods were created in a range of coordinated designs, from the place card and table numbers to the lovely white menu cards with a rich violet flourish. Sweet Weddings created Simina and Steve's wedding cake decorated with spectacular sugar flowers similar to the arrangements of fresh flowers on the tables. Everyone danced the night away to The Mystery Band and joined in a celebratory drink served in miniature barrel shot glasses.
