Soft + Romantic Florida Wedding

Caroline and Brandon’s St. Petersburg wedding is equal parts soft and romantic, and elegant touches abound! The couple, who opted to eschew a first look, caught their first glimpse of each other as Caroline walked down the aisle of the gorgeous St. Mary our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in a sophisticated custom Augusta Jones gown. During the full Catholic mass, the couple both used their baptismal candles to light the same unity candle that Brandon’s parents lit on their wedding day. In the months leading up to the wedding, Caroline and Brandon had taken dance classes, and their choreographed first dance was a hit at the reception! Along with their guests, many of whom traveled to Florida for the big day, the couple danced all night! The ballroom of The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club was transformed with lush arrangements by Botanica International Design Studio featuring peonies, roses, greenery, and a sea of candlelight. We are smitten with every beautiful image from Kristen Weaver Photography!
