A Romantic Garden Wedding at The Birchwood in St. Petersburg, Florida
Karen Brown (31 and a digital assistant at HSN) and Joe Mele (31 and an air traffic controller at TPA) wanted their wedding to have a very romantic vibe to it. Lush garlands and garden roses in white, blush and deep wine shades were used in the bouquets and centerpieces with candles rounding out the soft, romantic feel of the wedding. Color wise, Karen based her palette around her blush, tulle gown and used shades of white, pink, and gray throughout the decor. Certain elements, like the cannoli cream wedding cake (a nod to the flavor of Joe's yearly birthday cake) and New York and Florida State postcards used as a guest book (with New York being Joe's home state and Florida being Karen's home state) added a personal touch to the decor and tied the romantic theme together nicely.
