Of course, each love story is special, but Matt and Nicole’s is a cut above the rest. Their story began six years ago, when they crossed paths while working at Hyatt. It took some time for Matt to convince Nicole of his feelings, but once he finally did, they knew they were meant to be!
From beginning to end, their Big Day was perfect, with Limelight Photography snapping the most precious moments every step of the way! Nicole made a gorgeous bride as she walked down the aisle at St. John Vianney Catholic Church. Matt, for his part, looked so proud and handsome as he waited for her at the altar.
Crafting this couple’s floral was such a fun, amazing experience! Everything was created using a palette of rich fall colors: burgundy, purple and orange. For the bride’s bouquet, we added some wonderful deep burgundy mini calla lilies, dahlia blooms, and pops of raspberry stock blooms and bold tangerine roses, with orange pin cushion protea as a finish. Her bridesmaids sported similar bouquets, matching the color and texture but scaled down in size.
For our stylish groom, we created a boutonniere with a deep burgundy mini calla lilly and seeded eucalyptus. They certainly made a striking couple as they exchanged vows!
Soon, it was time for the reception, and the newlyweds and their guests headed to the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront. The room had been elaborately decorated, with lots of gold touches, and the most beautiful soft, pink lighting. Floral centerpieces stood tall on the tables, sporting varied blooms in pinks, reds, purples, and creams.
After enjoying a delicious meal and the decadent cake by The Artistic Whisk, the couple and their guests spent the rest of the evening dancing till they were too tired to take another step. The joy and good cheer were palpable in the air as everyone said goodbye to the newlyweds. Congratulations, Matt and Nicole!
