From the overflowing florals to the wine-cork escort cards and colorful accents, Robyn Colucci (a hairdresser) and Joseph Colucci’s (owner of Colucci Catering) beach wedding was straight out of Tuscany. The day started with a sweet barefoot ceremony and unity-sand tradition. Botanicals on the Gulf placed three goldenrod roses and greenery along each white chair as burgundy, red and white rose petals covered the sandy aisle. The most eye-catching arrangement was their wedding arch. Robyn and Joseph said “I do” under a display of burgundy, pink, and orange blooms that covered the top of their white arbor. The celebration continued inside Marco Beach Ocean Resort as each burlap-lined table was met with lush arrangements of greenery, blush garden roses and red chrysanthemums atop iron candelabras and around black lanterns. Robyn and Joseph’s wedding cake matched the decor with a soft and delicate touch. The team at Kakes by Karen baked a three-tier white confection with delicate white dots and burlap across each tier. Cascading pink and ivory roses and burgundy dahlias added a natural touch to the classic confection. The red velvet and white cake was then completed with a custom black topper with the couple’s initials. Everyone ended their night with a sundae bar, a few tunes from Mobile Sound Entertainment and a personalized ivory bag of seeds as their wedding favor. “We wanted a rustic, Tuscan feel with pouring romance, and that it was,” Robyn says. Limelight Photography captured every detail, below.

Fitting the couple’s Italian-inspired theme, Robyn chose an empire-waist, ivory wedding dress with floral beading on the bodice and a sweet cascading ruffle along the front. “It had an almost Roman feel to the design and flow,” Robyn says. Her maid of honor added a pop of color to the day with a blood-orange, halter gown.
“Our wedding theme was rustic with pops of color,” Robyn says. Botanicals on the Gulf designed overflowing arrangements of pink and ivory roses,  orange and pink chrysanthemums, green hydrangeas, orange hypericum berries, greenery and seeded eucalyptus for each table. Breakaway vases, lanterns and black candelabras were filled with these bright florals.
Their wedding was held about 18 months after Joseph popped the question. The couple were taking a horseback riding trip around Long Island, New York, when he stopped, asked the tour guide to take their picture and pulled out the ring. “I was completely surprised and my ring is absolutely gorgeous,” Robyn says. He gave her a custom round-diamond ring he designed with a diamond halo.
Botanicals on the Gulf fit the couple’s Tuscan-inspired wedding style. Robyn’s empire-waist wedding dress was paired with a lush arrangement of blush garden roses,  ivory roses, seeded eucalyptus, pale yellow delphiniums, burgundy dahlias and dusty miller.

Robyn and Joseph added a fun touch to their ceremony with the groomsmen’s attire. “We wanted a little fun, casual feel for the guys,” she says. Each paired his own black tuxedo with a white shirt, black tie, matching suspenders and either all-black or black-and-white Converse sneakers.

The team at Botanicals on the Gulf designed garden tablescapes that added a natural touch to the couple's Tuscan-inspired decor. Black breakaway vases, lanterns and candelabras were matched with burgundy dahlias, orange roses, moss, eucalyptus and more, behind fun wooden table numbers.
The native New York couple picked an Italy-inspired theme for their Florida wedding at Marco Beach Ocean Resort in Marco Island, Florida. “The venue was very romantic with a Tuscan feel,” Robyn says. Each table at their reception was mixed with an arrangement of bright florals alongside black lanterns, topping candelabras and overflowing from black breakaway vases.
Kakes by Karen put a Tuscan twist on the classic white wedding cake with a few fun details. The couple’s three-tier confection was filled with red velvet and white cake as cannoli and cream cheese filling separated each layer. Burlap lined the base as blush and ivory roses and bold burgundy dahlias cascaded down the first and last layer for a natural touch that matched their decor.
To make their guests feel special, Robyn and Joseph left them a few treats. “We had favors of [seeds for] planting a memory, as well as large welcome bags in the guests' hotel rooms," the bride says. "Each contained candy, snacks, gum, mints, water, a personalized beach towel and Advil for the next morning.”
