This styled shoot was the epitome of Gilded Glam, featuring mixed shades of metallics and plenty of elegant, high-end design. The Museum of Fine Arts was the perfect backdrop for all the details fashioned for a lux-loving bride.
Kaylee and Ryan wanted their wedding to reflect their Southern roots and shared Faith in a gorgeous waterfront garden wedding in Tampa. Their soft color palette of blush, rose gold, and gold, was reflected in details like the flowy chiffon bridesmaid dresses, romantic loose flora, and vintage candlesticks on the tables.
To showcase the new Diehl Farms venue we created a stylized photoshoot dubbed 'Elegant Equestrian', which combined classic Southern elements with vintage touches, along with character unique to Diehl Farms.
A ceremony in the rolling pasture featured weathered wooden benches and cowhide ottomans mixed with chiavari chairs for an eclectic look, and an antique church window created the perfect alter arch.
A cocktail hour lounge space featured a vignette of cowhorn chairs and loveseat accented with pillows in persimmon velvet and leather, all aside a trio of hay wheels.
A feasting table inside the stable sat perched beneath a swag of garland, dressed in hemstitch linen runner and floral embroidered overlay with vintage china and an assortment of cowhide chairs and mahogany chiavaris, while a charming sweetheart table sat beneath a giant wagon wheel chandelier.
A colorful beverage station featured a peachy shade of punch with orange-sugar rimmed crystal glasses and birch paper straws.
A bountiful dessert cart housed displays of pie pops, butterscotch milks, and other sweet treats, while an hors d'oeuvre display offered delectable appetizers that incorporated a nod to the tomato farm as well.
Inspiration for the escort card display came from the farm's main crop - tomatoes; lined up inside crates and pinned with gold vellum leaves to direct guests to their assigned tables.
Even the floral centerpieces and bride's bouquet were accented with colorful tomatoes.
The models were styled in an "All American" look, with elegant yet soft hair, flowing dresses, and layered necklaces.
So many lovely details everywhere you looked!

Dana and Al are jet-setting professionals that have traveled the world, and have the enormous group of friends and family to show for it! They wanted a unique and memorable wedding that their guests would never forget, and what better way to showcase their new roots in Tampa than a garden wedding overlooking the iconic Bayshore Boulevard, the bay, and downtown? They paired their classic, elegant style with a little Latin flair and the result was a stunning Fall event fit for the fun and discerning palates alike!
Jen and Hutch were married in a gorgeous outdoor celebration at the St. Pete Women's Club on Snell Isle. Jennifer beamed as she was escorted down the grassy aisle to her groom, the two exchanging vows beneath a vine-clad arch. Surrounded by such gorgeous landscape, we closed the roads to host a private reception overlooking the Coffee Pot Bayou. Rustic vineyard details brought a Napa Valley feel to St. Petersburg, impressing guests with wine cork escort cards, wine bottle label table numbers (all from wineries the couple had visited), and a self-serve bubbly bar during the cocktail hour. Even the color palette boasted shades of champagne and rosé in details from the gowns to the garden roses. It was evident that love was the most important aspect of their special day, reflected in heartfelt details such as thank you notes tucked into the guest napkins, the unassumingly lovely wedding cake, and the bride and groom’s donation to a charity in honor of a beloved family member in leiu of favors. The dancing and celebration under a canopy of lights gently reflected across the water as the sun set. Cheers to the happy couple!
